On a modern dualism
The theory of dualism has been expressed in many forms1, one of which is known as the “modern theory of dualism”, which we describe below:
In nature, beings are mainly concerned with staying alive, feeding and reproducing. In addition to satisfying his needs, man has sought to achieve greater well-being and ask himself what we would call existential questions. Where do we come from? Who put us on this lump of rock lost in the icy vastness of space without asking us first? Were we designed to be a superior being? What happens after our apparently inevitable disappearance? Down through the centuries, man has constantly built up theories based on philosophical doctrines, religious beliefs and mathematical formulae. He has wanted to “know”, without realizing that, the more he appears to know of things, the more inaccessible the truth becomes. We must agree that all this effort has been in vain and that we remain without answers.
