The article features an excerpt from Science of Being and Art of Living, written by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and first published in 1963.
In the book Maharishi defines 'Being':
''Being is the ultimate reality of all that exists; It is absolute in nature. Everything in the universe is of a relative order, but eternal Being, the ultimate life principle of unmanifest nature, expresses itself in different forms and maintains the status quo of all that exists.''
Maharishi discusses this understanding of Being in relation to modern science:
''. . . . [I]n his attempt to scientifically establish the unified field theory, Einstein seems to have been clearly aware of the possibility of one ultimate basis of all diversity, one common denominator of all creation. At least he was trying to establish one constant as the basis of all relative existence. If physical science should arrive at that conclusion which Einstein was trying to pinpoint with his unified field theory, one element will be established as the basis of all relative creation. With the rapid pace of development in nuclear physics, the day does not seem to be far off when some theoretical physicist will succeed in establishing a unified field theory. It may be given a different name, but the content will establish the principle of unity in the midst of diversity, the basic unity of material existence.''
Maharishi also explains that the field of Being is the transcendental field of pure consciousness at the basis of mental activity, and describes how anyone can directly experience this field through the Transcendental Meditation Technique:
''The Science of Being not only postulates a theory of one absolute element at the basis of the entire creation but also provides a systematic way whereby any man may have direct experience of the essential nature of transcendental, absolute Being.''
''. . . . The process of bringing the attention to the level of transcendental Being is known as the system of Transcendental Meditation.''
The article also mentions Maharishi's work with eminent physicists on this topic, especially Dr John Hagelin, who worked closely with Maharishi for 30 years developing connections between the unified field of consciousness and the most advanced discoveries of quantum physics, and the applications of this understanding for the betterment of human life.
