Exploring ancient science

The ancient Sanskrit scriptures have pure science in them. The science in them is completely different from what we know in modern science. An unbiased study of these texts, open our mind to the fact that “even the basic tenets of study of reality around us” can vary. It leads us to a very startling conclusion that all postulates, laws, experiments and principles need not always involve observables around us. In fact it questions the very basic assumptions that we have made regarding space and time and its relation to the observable individuals around us. It opens up a different world of viewing reality around us… Read More

Ancient Science: What is action?

According to modern understanding, action is a basically the act of doing something to achieve an aim. In physics, an action is a type of motion to achieve something. Strangely, when we look at any of the ancient Sanskrit literation that describe the formation of reality, individuals in reality or the workings of reality, we… Read More

“Internally” observed and “Externally” observed

Many questions arise when we talk about “observables”. First and foremost “what is an observable?” which inherently begs to ask “What can I really observe?” But, even more inherent question in all of this is that which we automatically assume. “What is the observer?” For example when we talk about an “observer” in quantum physics… Read More

Ancient Science: Real-time vs Offline Analysis

It is strange that the more I get into understanding how all this around me works, the more I get into data analytics and AI concepts. This is another of those topics that reads much like a data analytics topic, but is very much related to the formation of reality as explained in the various… Read More

BOOKS

Empirical reality has been the focus of most scientific studies. But, humans have always been curious about how awareness, consciousness, sub-consciousness, or how the mind works. How are thoughts formed? Am I the mind? Is the brain responsible for consciousness? Are thoughts consciousness? Are there sub-conscious thoughts? Is the observable universe the truth? Is there a truth beyond reality? What is difference between a living being and a non-living being? What is the soul? This book talks about what the Surya Siddanta says about this.

I find our understanding of Shiva is quite different from what is described in these literatures. The notion of Shiva as a God, its religious association with divinity, as a belief or any emotions associated with it seems alien when these texts are translated and read. I find by associating emotions, judgement and conclusions based on judgement to the concept of Shiva, we have lost the knowledge of Shiva and romanticised it according to our needs. This book talks about what Shiva could possibly have been to the ancients based on which the various Sanskrit literature is written.

“Path of the Ancients crackles with compelling prose that moves effortlessly through the science, allowing Kalki to find her answers. The truth startles yet satisfies. By the book’s end, this inventive sci-fi mystery rewires the reader’s view of the world. The novel establishes a fascinating new series conceived by a thoughtful and imaginative author.” Self-Publishing Review

This is a fictional story exploring the possible aspects of our reality if what the Upanishads talk about is true.

Ancient Science: What is “work Done” or KAra?

In physics, work is that which either object from one location to another and hence is expressed as a product of force and displacement or that which translates energy from one form to another. The point to note here is that the definition of “energy itself” is very vague or has no definition independent of… Read More

Ancient Science: Derivatives and integrals of realtime data

This blog is mostly devoted to researching about the truth and how that truth or Brahman as it is called in ancient Sanskrit literature becomes this reality around us. But, I am sure you have noticed that this blog title reads more like mathematics in data analytics. Why is this so? As I have written… Read More

Ancient Science: Revisiting vijnana or coherence

I had done the translation of some verses of Vijnana Bhairava long back and it seems a long long time back. While the translation paved the way to understanding other concepts, now that I have understood some of the in-depth concepts, it is time to revisit and rethink vijnanam with the new information. I believe… Read More

Ancient Science: What is distance and direction

As I have indicated in many of my previous blogs and books, we sense raw data, but experience derived data. Distance and direction are derivatives that are known only in the analytical fifth dimension which is caused because of storage and analysis. This derivatives then leads us to the formation of the derivatives of space… Read More

Ancient Science: Indeterminate and Determinate

As I have indicated in my previous blog, the “Brahman” is considered to be the “indeterminate truth” rather than an existence of all possibilities. The main difference being a “indeterminate truth” is a “continuous expanse of indeterminate” rather than a set of “discrete determinate” that come together to form an indeterminate. In fact in Sanskrit,… Read More

Ancient Science: Observation and protected by observation

In quantum mechanics we talk about quantum particle(s) or entities being in every possible state (wave or particle) till an observer is present. As I have said in my books and many of my blogs, a fact that is questionable in such a definition is why have we only included the two states that we… Read More

Astrology: What is Mina rAshi?

Like many other terminologies, “rAshi” is also completely misunderstood in modern astrology. It typically is used to indicate one of the 12 (zodiac?) segments and hence starts the concept of janma rAshi or the sign under which you are born etc. So, minA rAshi is commonly translated as the pisces zodiac sign. I do not… Read More

How obscurity of astronomy can help understand concepts

As I had indicated in my previous blog “Why we should not be eager to become a space faring species?“, we should let the obscurity in the knowledge of the objects external to our earth remain obscure. As I had indicated, the tools that we have currently to detect and understand the various observable parameters… Read More

Why we should not be eager to be a space faring species

As I have written previously, I find, we, as humans, when we create technology using the external matter around us, we have successfully ended up creating garbage. Does not matter how long an item lasts and what it was used for. It is still a perishable. It can be a Sony TV that conked out… Read More

Ancient Science: Explaining Samadhi

Samadhi is another of those loosely used terms, attributed to sages and seers and looked on with awe and described without any understanding of what the term means. I should say that I belonged to the same class of people. But, like all the other explanations I have tried to give in this blog related… Read More

ABOUT THIS BLOG

The Upanishads have been translated by a number of people who preach about God and religion. They tend to work translations of the Upanishads into saying what they want for marketing. The translations have been adapted to reflect their own understanding of the world but more importantly adapted to talk about God, religion, kindness, Seva, helping and a lot of other concepts that promote them to exploit the nativity of gullible people.
