Non-Spiritual Spirituality

A few years ago, I took a 10-day Vipassana course. At the end of the retreat, I have noticed a surprising strange phenomenon: Some "hardcore" senior Vipassana meditators which evidently seemed during the retreat as truly advanced, as soon as the official retreat ended and thus talking started, they happened to switch immediately to unconscious behavior with their egos inflated to monstrous propositions.

Someone can say "Jupiter is made of cheese and therefore it looks white". I cannot validate that Jupiter is made of cheese as currently I cannot travel to Jupiter therefore it is a theory for me and therefore useless. Nevertheless, I may be still willing to accept this statement as valid if the sayer is actually an astronaut and happened to travel to Jupiter once...

It occurred to me yesterday that it is very unlikely that something like God exists.

The main idea is about whether there is such an entity with consciousness.

The basic difference between science and spirituality

What is the basic difference between science and spirituality?

In science, subject and object may be one.

In spirituality, subject and object cannot be one. If you are able to observe something than this something is not you.

Beyond spirituality, when god is realized, the subject and object must be one.
