What Is Relationship Between Science And Divine Names?

In expressing and describing all the attainments of learning and scientific progress and wonders of technology which man manifests through his comprehensive disposition with the title of ‘the teaching of the Names’, there is the following subtle and elevated allusion in this wondrous verse: all attainments and perfections, all learning, all progress, and all sciences, each have an elevated reality which is based on one of the Divine Names. On being based on the Name, which is concealed under numerous veils and has various manifestations and different spheres, the sciences and arts and attainments find their perfection and become reality. It is not some incomplete and deficient shadow.

For example, engineering is a science; its reality and final point reaches to Almighty God’s Names of All Just and Determiner, and observes with all their majesty the wise manifestation of those Names in the mirror of engineering.

And, for example, medicine is a science, and also an art; its final point and reality relies on the Absolutely Wise One’s Name of Healer, and through seeing its compassionate manifestations in the vast pharmacy of the face of the earth, medicine finds its perfection and becomes reality.

And, for example, the natural sciences, which discuss the reality of beings; through seeing the regulating, nurturing supreme manifestations of Almighty God’s (May His glory be exalted) Name of All-Wise in things, in their benefits and advantages, and through attaining to the Name, and being based on It, these sciences may contain true wisdom. Otherwise they are either transformed into superstition, or become nonsense, or open up the way to misguidance like Naturalist philosophy.

There, three examples for you! You may make analogies with these for the other sciences and attainments.
