write a post discussing the ways in which key Buddhist concepts can be viewed as compatible or incompatible with modern science. Concepts you might discuss include (but are not limited to) reincarnation (samsara), karma, suffering (dukkha), no/non-self (anatman), impermanence, and dependent/interdependent origination. Be creative and note both points of convergence and tension. It may surprise you to consider how some Buddhist concepts which originated in the pre-modern and pre-scientific period anticipate or partially align with modern scientific discoveries and principles. You might find it worthwhile to consider, for instance, the laws of thermodynamics, Newton’s laws of motion, natural selection, cognitive science, evolutionary theory, etc. The goal of this post is to consider what it might look like for pre-modern religious and philosophical concepts to inhabit the modern world. Religious traditions that have survived thousands of years have adapted and transformed in countless ways, so this post invites you to consider key Buddhist concepts in this light.
