Spirituology is a scientific form of religion (service to God).
By multiple spiritual observations and experiences I have been allowed to get knowledge of a spiritual reality, which exists invisibly to us next to this material world. In that spiritual world is located the spiritual source of human existence, the divine, universal spirit and from that source all human spirits have come forth by densification as independent beings.
I have summarized the observed characteristics of the divine spirit and the human spirit in spirituology; it is a description of the knowledge of the spirit that I have been allowed to acquire. In spirituology I describe the relationship between the divine, universal spirit and the human spirit, that between spirit, soul and body, and also the properties of the spiritual abilities with which man himself, at his free choice, can bring about a spiritual development. A development that goes very slowly due to the numerous changes of conditions and events in life that must be experienced and processed.
These topics I describefrom the point of view of the spirit. The spirit is at the center.
I then compared this knowledge with the experiences and insights of those who - throughout the entire history of mankind all over the world - have also relied on personal experiences with the reality of the spirit and the spiritual world; and I have tested these in my dealings with my fellow human beings in everyday life.
Looking at todays existence from these essential experiences, one can see how religiosity in the daily life of modern man is affected in it's deepest grounds. Many churches have failed to support a personal, living faith in God of their members; at the same time the natural sciences - which are one-sidedly directed at material existence - have taken over the role of spirituality - directed towards spiritual existence - and have darkened the spirit.
These natural sciences have acquired the former authority of the churches; as a result, the worldview and the human image of neurologists and biologists have been taken over by society, and their way of thinking and speaking has now penetrated everywhere in everyday's language and the written word. The spirit has been replaced almost everywhere by 'brains'.
The human image that is now at the center of attention, is limited by the influence of neurologists to nothing more but a 'neuronal activity' of the brain. In addition, evolutionary biologists depict man as a phenomenon that is a 'try-out of nature' and originates only by chance; but what happened by chance could just as incidentally not have been there. As a result of this, the value of being human is reduced from the point of view of the natural sciences to nothing but an alienating and transient biological phenomenon, with the sole purpose of reproduction and development of the species.
As a result of this, the spiritual sense of life is lost sight of. This causes an alienation of the human being from his own existence, making his existence an ideological emptiness, which results in a desire for filling in by means of a pastime.
This one-sided, scientific influence brings many people to doubt and can mean the end of their religious life. After all, the spiritual half of being human is denied and dismissed as imaginary nonsense; in this way the meaning of man is reduced to that of a purely biological machinery, without any deeper cause or higher purpose.
In that case man is no longer responsible for his actions, because the 'wiring in his brain' determines his actions.The encouragement to love God above all and to love one's neighbour as oneself, can therefore no longer be proclaimed to mankind with authority ... and the behavior of people towards one another is therefore sometimes in line with this.
"Science is observation."
Plato, Greek philosopher (427 - 347 B.C.)
Science is: investigating a certain phenomenon by making observations, then think about them to determine their meaning and finally let others do such research to see if they come to the same conclusion. If that is the case, then the newly acquired knowledge belongs to science.
Most natural scientists, however, do not make any observations in the field of spirituality. Nevertheless, they believe that they are allowed to make statements on spiritual matters, enticed to do so by the authority they derive from their knowledge. Measured according to their own standards, this attitude can be considered unscientific. They only proclaim their personal (that is: subjective) opinion.
"I will not allow myself to participate in the fashion, to regard everything I can not explain, as deceit." C.G. Jung
Sculpture without a sculptor?
Starting from a sculpture you can try to understand the motives and personality of the sculptor; but you cannot explain why it is there solely on the basis of the image itself, without involving the maker. Yet that is what one-sided natural scientists are striving for:
they try to understand nature without wanting to start by its cause; they believe that the cause can be found in nature itself ... the 'nature' itself is their god and therefore they add all kinds of spiritual qualities to nature (such as the 'selfish genes').
Because of this one-sided orientation towards nature, they have imposed on themselves the restriction, that 'measuring only leads to knowledge'; but because of that they only have an eye for temporary existence and that's why they are in a state of mind corresponding to the eye, while seeing, does not see itself, and is therefore not aware of the fact, being itself the looking: the state of unconscious identification with this existence of the human spirit.
In order to maintain the independence of the 'Big Bang' as the only beginning of the universe, and not need to mention God, are they even inclined to believe that 'something can be produced out of nothing'; which is a completely unscientific statement. They rightly call this event a 'singularity', which literally means a 'strangeness'.
By their decision to pay attention only on matter and by declaring the spirit out of the material world, they turn the matter on its head; they tighten the spiritual horse behind the material carriage and thus prevent themselves from gaining insight into the meaning of the material world.

A scientific approach to religion
In the current era it is impossible to return to the faith as it used to be: believing solely in the authority of the Bible and of clergymen. Modern man is only fascinated by matters that appeal to the intellect and can be explained in an comprihensible way - the current education only allows people to convince themselves by what can be reasoned scientifically.
Spirituology is a scientific approach to religion. It stands apart from all other directions, because it proclaims no opinion, but gives a description of the spirit and of the spiritual meaning of temporary existence. It is not a system of thought or a frame of mind, it is not a belief, but a scientific description of the human and universal spirit, based on my own observations and on comparison with the mystical experiences of others, in order to be able to evaluate the value and correctness of spirituology.
With spirituology I start my considerations from observations that I have been allowed to make in the spiritual world, the value of which I have then thought about and summarised, and finally tested against similar findings that others have made in the past, among them: Hildegard von Bingen, Jan van Ruusbroec, Emanuel Swedenborg, Jacob Boehme and Jakob Lorber; they have all described extensively their experiences with the reality of the spiritual world.
Spirituology is a coherent and comprehensible concept of the spiritual meaning of material existence. With spirituology I also show what causes the one-sided choice of natural scientists for only the material half of creation: it is the state of unconscious identification with matter caused by an narrowing of consciousness, which is inherent to the presence of the human spirit in this earthly existence.
"Science of matter should be part of science of life
and not vice versa."
Henri Bergson, French philosopher (1859 - 1941)
The spiritual abilities
I have been allowed to gain experience with the properties of the spiritual foundation of the physical creation: the universal, divine spirit. Starting from these experiences, I describe with the help of spirituology how spiritual qualities, in the form of the spiritual abilities, are recognizable in this physical creation.
This applies in particular to the shape of the human body and the functioning of the brain - which are built up entirely in accordance with the qualities of the spirit: its spiritual abilities; it is only by these that the human spirit can make use of them; and it is because of this that brain physiologists find spiritual properties in the functioning of the brain ... and then declare that the brain does do this itself and that the spirit does not exist.
As a result, I build a bridge from the spiritual half of creation to the physical half with the help of spirituology. With spirituology I show the deeper meaning that God's creation has for mankind: to be a school of learning for the spirit - but for that purpose that creation must be adapted to spiritual qualities, if man wants to be able to stay in it and work with it.
By the insights of spirituology the balance between spirit and matter is restored; man, handed over to himself in this physical existence, regains his lasting, spiritual meaning and can learn to see events in this temporary existence in the right light ... the light of eternity.
This is also related to the meaning of the word 'school', which comes from the Egyptian 'she oel a': 'the lonely man, he is thirsty for insight'.
From the beginning of modern natural sciences in the 17th century there were researchers who saw in creation God's hand, as in the Netherlands Jan Swammerdam, but also for example Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein had that view.
The fact that there is a human spirit in creation,
who is gradually able to understand this creation,
is caused by the fact that both creation and the human spirit
have been created by a similar spirit: the divine spirit.
The universal spirit has ever densified a self-image of itself as the divine spirit
to itself as a spirit spark, the human spirit;
and gave to this self-image the aptitude to develop itself - with silent help from above - into personal independence.
The purpose of spirituology is to make the human spirit - which is not only active in spiritual experiences, but also in everyday life and in scientific efforts - experienceable. In this way man can acquire essential self-knowledge and knowledge of his or her fellow human beings, as a result of which better mutual understanding between people can grow.
A peaceful coexistence of humanity will also be promoted in this way, certainly by the realization that we all have emerged from one source and - each in his own way - are also on their way back to it again: our God (the meaning of 're-ligio': 're-connection', 're-unification').
Each one of us, in his own way, takes that one main road for man, leading to God ... but the journey along that road takes a long time because of the many changes of living conditions and of events in life that we have to experience and process. As a result, we can easily lose sight of the purpose of the road and then let ourselves be distracted by many things around us.
The website spirituology is a memorial on earth
for the history of spiritual life in humanity
and for God's holy ghost in eternal infinity,
who in man Jesus once was with us
and which for all of us is the example of being human.
