Suffering and Evolution with Dr Prigogine and Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

Suffering and Evolution is discussed by the two great scientists – Dr Ilya Prigogine and Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

Prigogine is best known for his definition of dissipative structures and their role in thermodynamic systems far from equilibrium, a discovery that won him the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1977.

He was a member of numerous scientific organizations, and received numerous awards, prizes and 53 honorary degrees. In 1955, Ilya Prigogine was awarded the Francqui Prize for Exact Sciences. For this study in irreversible thermodynamics, he received the Rumford Medal in 1976, and in 1977, the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. In 1989, he was awarded the title of Viscount by the King of the Belgians. Until his death, he was president of the International Academy of Science and was in 1997, one of the founders of the International Commission on Distance Education (CODE), a worldwide accreditation agency.

Prigogine: I feel that there is a deep convergence in the views expressed by Maharishi and some of the aims towards unity which is expressed in recent tendencies in science… There was one statement made by Maharishi which I am not exactly understanding. It is a very optimistic statement and I would like to see if I have not understood it. It is a statement that “Suffering is related to violation of laws of nature.” Now this is of course an extremely optimistic statement in the sense that if we could learn how not violate the laws of nature then suffering would in a sense stop. How to combine life with the absence of suffering?…

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi: One very beautiful thing that is contained in Dr Prigogine’s remarks is a very basic principle of evolution. Evolution proceeds on differences, counter distinction, opposition and that is between activity and rest – cycles there is activity and there is rest. All the cycles of days and nights, activity and rest, sleep and waking, activity and rest. This is how evolution proceeds.

Now, suffering is because of the drag that creative intelligence feels to itself. The evolutionary process of this cycle of rest and action, of rest and action is because of the creative nature of life. Life must create newer values, higher values, bigger horizons – it must create through the cycles rest and activity.

Maharishi began teaching Transcendental Meditation to world in the 1950′s to help all people overcome suffering and to increase the speed of evolution.

We can’t think suffering is a part of life – always evolution, always evolutionary…

Conference of Evolutionary Models in Nature – December 21-22, 1975 in Vitznau, Switzerland.
