What is sad is that the scientists who discovered that matter and energy are same, have used that knowledge to make atom bombs. This disaster is the result of science having limited its knowledge of advaita to worldly matter at the intellectual level. The advaita of science, instead of limiting itself to the intellect and the external world must become part of people’s awareness and attitude.
We look at things with our eyes alone. We call one flower a rose and another as that of datura. If we look at them with jnana, both the rose and the datura will appear only as bliss. It is due to lack of jnana that we perceive one as rose and the other as datura. In fact everything is bliss only. The reason why we are unable to perceive the truth is that our mind is contaminated by impurities.
