Three fundamental sciences which will guide the psychologist and the educator of the future

Three major sciences will eventually dominate the field of education in the coming age. They will not negate the activities of modern science but will integrate them into a wider subjective whole. These three sciences are:

I. The Science of the Antahkarana 

This is the new and true science of the mind, which will utilise mental substance for the building of the bridge between personality and soul, and then between the soul and the spiritual triad.  This constitutes active work in substance subtler than the substance of the three worlds of ordinary human evolution. It concerns the substance of the three higher levels of the mental plane. These symbolic bridges, when constructed, will facilitate the stream or flow of consciousness and will produce that continuity of consciousness, or that sense of unimpeded awareness, which will finally end the fear of death, negate all sense of separateness, and make a man responsive in his brain consciousness to impressions coming to him from the higher spiritual realms or from the Mind of God. Thus he will more easily be initiated into the purposes and plans of the Creator.


A. The mystical realisation of duality.

1. The problem of the integrated personality.

2. The vision of the soul, the central self.

3. The problem of the mystic.

B. Occult identification or at-one-ment.

1. The integration of soul and personality.

2. The mind as an intermediary.

3. The problem of equilibrium or steadiness.

C. The application of these concepts to the immediate educational necessity.



II. The Science of Meditation


At present meditation is associated in the minds of men with religious matters. But that relates only to theme. The science can be applied to every possible life process. In reality, this science is a subsidiary branch, preparatory to the Science of the Antahkarana.  It is really the true science of occult bridge building or bridging in consciousness. By its means, particularly in the early stages, the building process is facilitated. It is one of the major ways of spiritual functioning; it is one of the many ways to God; it relates the individual mind eventually to the higher mind and later to the Universal Mind. It is one of the major building techniques and will eventually dominate the new educational methods in schools and colleges. It is intended primarily to:


a. Produce sensitivity to the higher impressions.

b. Build the first half of the antahkarana, that between the personality and the soul.

c. Produce an eventual continuity of consciousness.

Meditation is essentially the science of light, because it works in the substance of light. One branch of it is concerned with the science of visualisation because, as the light continues to bring revelation, the power to visualise can grow with the aid of the illumined mind, and the later work of training the disciple to create is then made possible. It might be added here that the building of the second half of the antahkarana (that which bridges the gap in consciousness between the soul and the spiritual triad) is called the science of vision, because just as the first half of the bridge is built through the use of mental substance, so the second half is built through the use of light substance.


A. Meditation as an education technique.

1. Right control of the mind.

2. The two functions of the mind.

3. The mind as it builds the antahkarana.

B. Meditation in the world of ideas.

1. The power to intuit.

2. Sensitivity and response to higher impressions.

3. The function and promulgation of ideas.

C. The development of continuity of consciousness.

1. Personality continuity.

2. Continuity and immortality.

3. Continuity and initiation.



III. The Science of Service


This grows normally and naturally out of the successful application of the other two sciences. As the linking up of soul and personality proceeds, and as the knowledge of the plan and the light of the soul pour into the brain consciousness, the normal result is the subordination of the lower to the higher. Identification with group purposes and plans is the natural attribute of the soul. As this identification is carried forward on mental and soul levels, it produces a corresponding activity in the personal life and this activity we call service. Service is the true science of creation and is a scientific method of establishing continuity, and which is a definite technique of at-one-ment.


a. Service as a result of soul contact.

b. Service as cooperation with the plan.

c. Service as a technique of group development.

d. The unfoldment of the sense of service in the future.

e. Application of the concept of service to our modern educational developments.

These three sciences will be regarded eventually as the three major concerns of the educational process and upon them will the emphasis increasingly be placed.

We have now laid the ground for a consideration of the three sciences, which will dominate the thought of educators in the coming age. The building and the development of the antahkarana, the development of the power to control life and to work white magic through the science of meditation, and also the science of service whereby group control and group relationship are fostered and developed - these are the three fundamental sciences which will guide the psychologist and the educator of the future. These will also cause a radical change in the attitude of parents towards their children and in the methods, which they employ to train and teach them when they are very young and in the formative years of their consciousness.
