Modelling dimensions

As I have said in the blog on fifth dimension, when we talk dimensions, the first thought that comes to mind is space dimensions. The x, y and z co-ordinate system. Any new dimensions identified are added to this to extend this view. But, we need to ask ourselves why should new dimensions be an extension to these three spatial dimensions? The fact that an object in space can be adequately located… Read More

Ancient Science: Energy and its forms – 2

As I had explained in the blog “Ancient science: energy and its forms“, according to ancient science, energy is the variance in concentration of the underlying natures present in that minute spread of the vast expanse that is un-manifested and unknown from which this reality has sprung. The Surya Siddanta says: acintyAvyaktarUpAya nirguNAya gunAtmane samastajagadAdhAra mUrtaye brahmaNe namah alpAvAshiShTe tu kRta mayA nAma mahAsuraH rahasyaM paraM jijnAsurjnAnamuttamam Translates to: The incomprehensible, unmanifested,… Read More

The problems in defining a measurement for time

As I have written in a number of my previous blogs, according to ancient science, time does not exist. Time is just an abstract appearance in the fifth dimension for a series of changes that exist in the other dimensions. What is present is a “series of changes” in the underlying truth that can be linked together, and this is called kAla. Tracing the sequence for formation of reality that is provided… Read More

Ancient Science: energy and its forms

In modern science, energy is defined as “the capacity to do work”. Its explanation is given in terms of properties of “matter”. For example, the explanation for “heat” is due to the movement or vibration of atoms/molecules within a system. It almost makes it seem that matter needs to be present for thermal energy or any form of energy. For example, primary energy is defined as energy naturally present in nature such… Read More

Explaining physics of motion with ancient science

As I have explained in “Surya Siddanta: Emergence of empirical reality“, we need to change scientific study to include thought and change. We have failed to account for the working of the observer and observation in all of our scientific studies. In this blog I want to bring out how the science changes when this is introduced into the scientific study. I will take the basic physics of motion. Physics of motion… Read More

Ancient Science: Yoga – Practice of a theory

I will not dwell too much on what Yoga is considered as in today’s world. There are a dime and dozen sites that talk about this. The explanations vary anywhere from being just exercises for the body, to a union of spiritual and physical, to a way to understand and be one with the soul and so on the definitions go. Any of these definitions can be taken based on the limitations… Read More

Prajnaparamita hrdaya sutram – Part 2

I had translated the first part of this Sutram in Part – 1. Continuing with the translation of the rest of this Sutram: cittAvaraNa-nAstitvAda atrasto viparyAsAtikrAnto niShTa-nirvANa prAptaH = cittA + varaNa + nAsti + tvAda (tvAdatta shortened?) (nAstit + vAda) + atra + sto + viparyas + sAti + krAnto + niShTa + nirvANa + prAptaH = observable + by description + non-existent + given by other / other given? (non-existent… Read More

Prajnaparamita hrdaya sutram – Part 1

There are so many rare gems in the Sanskrit literature. Some of which we should not even try to understanding until some of the core concepts have been understood. It is when we try to understand these literature without context that we end up with the messy translations that seem to be superstitious and meaningless. These rare gems can only be understood when you start delving deeper into understanding this reality around… Read More

The fifth dimension

Dimensions in modern science mostly refer to spatial dimensions. Some consider time as a dimension, some consider gravity as a dimension and the search is on for many other dimensions, everything is up for debate. To note though, all of them are only spatial dimensions. To note also, any location in space is considered to be adequately represented by 3 dimensions and hence modern science has moved on for the search for… Read More

Ancient Science: Modelling reality with Dhyanam

Modelling real world events as mathematical models is used for prediction or forecasting and is an obsession of humans. We believe mathematics is a universal language. We try to find a mathematical representation of any and everything in reality. Yet, it is strange that we fail to recognise the fact that none of these mathematical models come any near to representing the complexity of the variables involved in the unfolding of events… Read More
