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 Sanskrit literature. I find myself more and more questioning “Should we really be studying creation of reality,… Read More

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 work. Thus having work defined with energy just makes it circular concept as any other primary concepts… Read More

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 the translation of vijnana was correct which is “coherence”, but, the core question that needs to be… Read More

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 and time. Space is caused by our ability to assign a specific distance and direction to locate… Read More

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, it is said to be the nirvikalpa and nirguNa Brahman, which means “Brahman” “without appearance” and “without… Read More

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 know of here and called them “all possibilities”? That a quantum entity can have wave or particle… Read More

Just like yoga, ayurveda and many many such themes existing in India, astrology is also something that is present in every nook and corner in India, coming down to us from ages in varied forms. It varies from someone giving me a daily prediction of what is going to happen today according to my star sign to someone picking up my kundali and giving me a prediction of how many doshas are… Read More

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

In this 6th part of the series Exploring science in ancient science, I will write about “thought”. In the previous blog, Understanding Transformation, I had written how everything around me is just a transformation of some underlying, which appears to me as either matter, light or any other observable that I can observe around me. As I had indicated in the previous blog, according to ancient science, that something which appears to… Read More

This is the third blog in the series Exploring science in ancient scriptures. In the previous two blogs, I had written about the difference in view of space, time and matter and explained the definition of existence according to ancient science. In the first blog I had explained how, if we considered this reality around us as a system, in this system, if we froze change across the system and viewed all… Read More
