Beliefs and dogmatic approaches in the realm of mystery

There are certainly many universes and uncountable dimensions of reality where both the things we’ve ever imagined and those we’ve never dreamt of exist. After detecting the smallest particle of what we call "matter", we realised that it doesn’t exist as such and all that holds and sustains it is of quite an unknown nature. Therefore, mystery will always outgrow our scarce and modest knowledge, which, though far from negligible, must be necessarily kept in the fragile container of humility.

This beautiful situation moves us to pursue the arcane of knowledge and beyond. Because, rather than pinpointing the existence of things, our issue is to find out how to reach them and determine the connections between them and us as both individuals and species. Furthermore, this premise, in the well-aired environment of an open and receptive mind, has been the key-tool of all the great discoverers throughout history. Most of all we hold that human mind should be free in every sense. Dismissing dogma and absolute truths of any kind, this wonderful tool enables us to find out the true preciousness of existence. Even religious people can be proud of these attributes, because if God do exist, it has created them with a free, continually evolving, analytical, restless, inquisitive and profound mind. Perhaps in its image.

Sectarian views

In the realm of mystery, as in every area of human activity, there have emerged undesirable limitations derived from processes which collided with our freedom of thought.
We've known about some researchers who used to be rational, unbiased and probing and eventually fell prey to inflexibility and dogmatism.
On the other hand, some people's messianic zeal has lured others into a world of self-imposed intellectual precepts and privations. Some have even founded sects while others, though not having founded them, have planted sectarian ideas in their followers.

We think as well that some researchers have fallen prey to ungrounded beliefs out of desperation. Perhaps they were cornered by the lack of evidence and connection between the phenomena they were researching about, thus feeling the urge to "listen to their hearts". The point is that we all seek answers, first, to our frail condition as mortals, and then, to our apparently isolated intellectual capacity as an alien species.
Furthermore, our mental structure and logical thinking make us try to explain everything according to their own mechanisms. However, only a small portion of reality can be explained this way. Whenever we are incapable of fully understanding this, we will choke on our own anthropocentric haze.

The spiritual quest

The same reasons lead some ordinary people to follow spiritual leaders and researchers to bend their research's course. However, only spiritual seekers usually appear as self-centered, while most followers, acolytes and believers choose certain religion or doctrine according to their personal need for solutions. In contrast, for the greatest and truest spiritual quests there is no compensation or reward. The main reason for this is that the spiritual titans have taken a definitive and fundamental step: they have renounced to their individual "self", knowing that they wouldn't earn anything for them in such a hard process.
Sectarian leaders are personifications of the human ego at its most recalcitrant and negative. They certainly deny anything which opposes their personal revelations and knowledge; things they think to have acquired in their capacity as the chosen ones by some deity or brotherhood of superior beings. A free mind will easily spot this kind of people. It simply will ask uncomfortable questions and put forth fringe arguments to the imposed dogma. Surely this will irritate those so-called masters more than anything else.

We don't believe, we do research

The above comes from facts we've verified in the Internet and other mass media. 
We're astonished witnesses of disseminated categorical affirmations about the most striking things by people who can't stand even the slightest disagreement. Even if we knew anything about unimaginable things we'd try to explain them in a subtler way and only after having found out enough. Provided this wasn't possible we'd ease our suspicious minds and invite to pondering and researching.

As it may be inferred from our previous articles, we think that the official media and press don't tell us the whole truth. We encourage to questioning and finding out rather than believing. Let's keep ourselves away from the dogmatic sceptical and the "enlightened masters"' lasso. The fact is that human beings are of a free kind and don't want to be enslaved. If we go deep enough into our true nature certainly we'll find out this is our essence's main element.
