As I have been writing in the various blogs about Surya Siddanta, I find that this literature is definitely not about astronomy. The context of translation of this literature needs to be “the emergence of this empirical reality from the truth”. When translated in this context, the concepts that emerges is surprising. It calls to question various foundational concepts of modern science that we accept without questioning.
I am in awe of the concepts described in this literature. The first hurdle to cross is in understanding the concepts presented in this literature. But, even if we can visualise and understand the concepts as a running system, it poses a huge problem to conceptualise enough of the working of the described concepts to think of a way to prove it. Given this to be the case, it is with astonishment that I wonder how someone was able to conceptualise the intricate details described in this literature and state it with the conciseness and preciseness that is present in the document. It is as if that which is watching this reality externally is explaining the emergence of this reality. That something or someone who can see the details of this reality working without being inherently involved in this reality.
For example, the literature starts with an “incomprehensible, unmanifested quality-less (something)”. Obviously, given it is quality-less, we cannot definitely visualise it from within the system. Yet, from there it is said that an unordered, abundant inactive is present. How can this be arrived at unless the incomprehensible is viewed as a third person? Another example is the definition of reality as “each and every movable”, where movable is not motion as we describe it. To understand what is meant by “movable” in this literature, requires a whole new perspective of reality around us, which can only be visible to someone external to our reality. The only word I can use to describe this literature is “beautiful”!!!
In this book, I have started first by questioning and bringing out the deficiencies that I find in the definitions we have in modern science. Subsequently, I have explained the concepts the best as I understand it with examples from reality around us. After all, even if our brains provide a glossed, analysed version of the raw data observed by the reality, there needs to remain some unvarnished aspects of the raw data which the brain utilises. This can be used to understand the concepts. Further it should also be understood that in every law we define in physics, chemistry, maths, in every experiment with do to understand the reality around us, every experiment we do to understand the working of the body a small part of the limitation of our own existence is revealed. Thus, these concepts can also be visible by analysing the various output from our thoughts, because our thoughts have to confirm to that underlying fundamental concepts the define us.
