The algorithm of the Universe (A new perspective to cognitive AI)

There are many attempts to explain the existence of the universe. Even the observable universe around us is filled with unknowns and numerous unexplainable phenomena, let alone the unobservable universe. Each and every theory proposed is just trying to find an explanation for the existence of the observable universe around us, ignoring the fact that it is potentially possible there is an invisible universe which reveals itself as we find newer ways to observe it. We need to first and foremost be able to abstract this universe as we observe it to be just a representation of something else underneath that is projected as this world around us by our descriptive thoughts. Then and only then can we find an explanation that is inclusive of everything that the universe is. As far as we search for the origin of just these appearances of descriptive thoughts, we will only dabble with physics, chemistry, mathematics and computations. It should be recognised that Wolfram introduces a very good concept. Simple things recurse to form complex worlds. But this without the correct transformation remains simply a recognisable pattern. How does this recognisable pattern go on to become this complex appearance of reality that we observe around us is up in the air. The ancient Sanskrit literature has an in-depth explanation of how this reality around us works and how it has come to be this. It just needs the correct context around which to translate these texts to understand it.

For a long time I wondered what would be the best way to explain the algorithm of the universe as seen by the ancients and explained in the Sanskrit literature. I could explain it by using translation of the Sanskrit verses in a certain order. But I find that they do not take the reader on the journey that is necessary to understand and form the correct thoughts to understand the working of and creation of this reality around us. I thought I would write it as a description of astrology i.e., jyothiSha which, if we look at from the ancient view, is actually a science that tells us how to control the distribution of seeking which drives the formation of this reality around us and hence control this reality itself. But, I find that the term has been highly mangled with all sorts of meaning associated with it. I find, even if there was a very beautiful science explained it becomes very difficult to break these pre-conceived perceptions to get the reader to read objectively and understand.

Finally, I have decided the best way is to use the computers that we have created and the AI algorithms that we are trying to code as the best way to describe it, because this was my primary driver to want to understand the Sanskrit literature and to debug the working of the universe. The underlying curiosity to understand why and how the AI that we write does not even seem to be a “fake imitation” of the working of the universe around us. The underlying curiosity to understand how this reality around me is so completely immersive while the virtual reality that we create does not even come near this immersive experience that we have with reality. The curiosity to understand if it is possible for us to create a hardware and software that comes even a little bit close to the kind of intelligence, knowledge and beauty in the algorithm of this reality around us. This has been my driver to decode and understand the Sanskrit literature. So, I find that is the best way to describe the algorithm.

In this book I explain the algorithms proposed in the Sanskrit literatures for the working of this reality around us. I also compare these concepts to what we have currently present in computers and explain how they are different from what is explained in these books and why what we have in computers are not sufficient to create the AI that we want to create. Further, I try to put down my thoughts on how or what can be done to create a system that can be used to implement a AI system.

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

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
