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 do not find any reference to “action” per say. We do find references to “work” and “work… 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

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

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 present are limited to the material properties of the observables. Do we really just want to discover… 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

In this blog of the series of exploring science in ancient scriptures, I will talk about the definition of “work done” as per these scriptures. In the previous blog, I had defined Logic or saMkhya and explained how an “adaptive algorithm” was established based on the series of changes and how this adaptive algorithm drives the establishing of the logic during the rise of the self path of existence. Once established, I… Read More

As I have tried to bring out in various translations and books, the ancient Sanskrit scriptures have pure science in them. But, the science in them is completely different from what we know in modern science. It is sad then that we try to equate the science in those scriptures to the science that we know as modern science. There are many instances of people claiming that ancient India had knowledge of… Read More

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… Read More

In the previous part of this document, I had translated till the formation of “I”. While, I write it as formation, it is important to note, that it is actually transformation. To know the difference between formation and transformation, think about this. If there is a chemical reaction between methane and oxygen, we get carbon dioxide and water. CH4 + 2 O2 → CO2 + 2 H2O. Here, molecules have reacted to… Read More
