God Will Never Die.

In God on December 31, 2013 at 19:46

In Human History discoveries have been made in all walks of life.

Theories are floated.

They are revised in the light of new evidence, old theories are discarded.

The Earth was assumed to be Center of the Universe.

Moon was considered to be Divine, stars beyond human reach.

We can go on adding to the list where old theories were revised and the  old theories are dead once and for all.

The same applies to all Arts and Sciences.

Except One.

The Theory on God.

While enlightenment(?) has induced man to accept new theories,discarding old thoughts, the concept of God and the debate does not seem to die.

If as Atheists were to be believed, God does not exist.

For some atheists the Universe is an accident.

For some it is Universal Law and it has nothing to do with God.

Some say it is Nature.

I do not know what they mean by Nature.

Is it Tree, Mountains,Forests?

If . as the Atheists proclaim, the concept of God  is incorrect and wrong, then the concept of God should have died a natural death.

This is not the case.

We have arguments for and against God is still going on.

We do not cling to the Theory that earth is the center of the universe any longer.

But we do not, at least most, do not, disavow the Theory of God.

Keeping my skepticism about Science aside for a moment on its infallibility,I am accepting Science for the present post.

If as certain as it is in Science, God concept should have been buried long back

Why did it not?

Earlier human beings, were in fear of everything, right from water, fire. lightening,darkness et al.

A he gained knowledge his apprehensions disappeared when he could explain these things.

Once explained, he is not concerned for to his comfort he has found a reason.

But one forgets mere explaining can not make things go away.

But Modern Man, under his arrogance of knowledge thinks he has over come all these fears.

Fact is He can not.

Watch Human reactions in times of  Natural Disaster and unexplained personal  loss  or calamity.

When things go well in life, every thing is under his control

Come disaster, he gets shaky.

One reason is  the fear of the unexpected , unknown and the inevitable and Death.

Another reason is that Man, by Nature seeks something , even when he thinks he has every thing material.

But the urge to know persists.

So long as these attributes of Man remain,God will Not Die.

Universe Illusion A Hologram Physicists Meet Adi Sankara

In Astrophysics, Hinduism on December 12, 2013 at 09:37

Brahma satyam jagat mithya, jivo brahmaiva naparah—”Brahman is the only truth, the world is unreal, and there is ultimately no difference between Brahman and individual self’-Adi Sankara in Viveka Chudamani

Declared Adi Sankara, the greatest exponent of non Dualism or Advaita,

Knowledge is relative,There are two kinds of Knowledge.

One is Para Vidya which id Eternal and another is Apara Vidya, that is transitory, that is of this temporal world.

From the Absolute stand point the knowledge we have here in this world, including Science et al is only Real till Real Knowledge dawns.

Then it becomes Illusory.

So the word is real and Unreal or Illusion , both at the same time.

Hinduism speaks of fourteen levels of existence.

Eleven have been proved theoretically by Quantum Physics.

Please read my post filed under Indian Philosophy, Hinduism, Time and Astrophysics Physics.

Scroll down for Videos.

Now Physicists have come with the same conclusion from a different angle.

‘Ekam Sath, Vipra Bahuta Vidanti’ Truth is One , People speak of It in many ways’

A team of physicists has provided some of the clearest evidence yet that our Universe could be just one big projection.

In 1997, theoretical physicist Juan Maldacena proposed that an audacious model of the Universe in which gravity arises from infinitesimally thin, vibrating strings could be reinterpreted in terms of well-established physics. The mathematically intricate world of strings, which exist in nine dimensions of space plus one of time, would be merely a hologram: the real action would play out in a simpler, flatter cosmos where there is no gravity.

Maldacena’s idea thrilled physicists because it offered a way to put the popular but still unproven theory of strings on solid footing — and because it solved apparent inconsistencies between quantum physics and Einstein’s theory of gravity. It provided physicists with a mathematical Rosetta stone, a ‘duality’, that allowed them to translate back and forth between the two languages, and solve problems in one model that seemed intractable in the other and vice versa. But although the validity of Maldacena’s ideas has pretty much been taken for granted ever since, a rigorous proof has been elusive.

In two papers posted on the arXiv repository, Yoshifumi Hyakutake of Ibaraki University in Japan and his colleagues now provide, if not an actual proof, at least compelling evidence that Maldacena’s conjecture is true.

In one paper, Hyakutake computes the internal energy of a black hole, the position of its event horizon (the boundary between the black hole and the rest of the Universe), its entropy and other properties based on the predictions of string theory as well as the effects of so-called virtual particles that continuously pop into and out of existence. In the other, he and his collaborators calculate the internal energy of the corresponding lower-dimensional cosmos with no gravity. The two computer calculations match.

“It seems to be a correct computation,” says Maldacena, who is now at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey and who did not contribute to the team’s work.”

Indian Thoughts, Advanced Modern Concepts

In Indian Philosophy, Science on June 8, 2013 at 10:27

We live in a Technological Age.

Whatever Theories have been formed they find expression in Technology.

Technology is so advanced that we are in fact of theories to support them!

Yet some of the Theories in Science need further examination and updating

Indian Philosophy has crossed this barrier thousands of years back and some of the Theories which we use now had ben used by them and were developed further,

(Note. In India, we use the term Philosophy in the broadest sense ,that is to know, to be aware of;Science is included in this)

But then there have been claims often that ’this is in Indian Philosophy,the finding is not new’.

This statement has been repeated ad nausea that people have started ridiculing these assertions.

We shall examine some of the Theories of Indian Philosophy and their relevance to modern Scientific Thought.

( When we say Indian Philosophy, it includes all systems of Thought ,Buddhism,Jainism,Sankhya,Nihilism,Atheism)

To begin with take the fundamental of Science.

The essentials of Science rest on two Axioms.

a)Law of Uniformity of Nature and

b)Theory of cause and Effect

Modern Physics , till recently, has been so rigid in its assertion that the laws of Physics are Universal and apply to the Universe.

Now they have revised their opinion.

They have come to the conclusion that the Physical laws that exist in our plane of existence may not be true or applicable to other levels.

The Quantum theory supports this view and the Theory also lends evidence to the existence of other universe at the other planes that exist simultaneously!

How does Indian Philosophy look at this problem , what is its stand on this and how does it explain these phenomena?

Indian Philosophy confirms the existence of 14 present Universes in our plane and more in other planes.

Modern Physics has proved,albeit theoretically, the existence of 11 planes that exist in different co ordinates.

We shall examine this .

2.Mathematics and Time .

Those who are keeping tabs of modern physics are aware that Time Travel is theoretically possible, though modern physics can not reconcile certain facts.

Those who have read Isaac Asimov’s “Eternity’ and seen some of the Hollywood Films on Time,like The Moth man Prophecy (based on True life story),’Next’ will know that by extending the Logic of these films which are correct any way), one can see the contradiction.

If one were to travel back in Time , meet his self at that point of time and kills him /kill his mother ,Grand mother before (the man in who travelled to the past) before they were responsible e for his birth, what happens to his existence now?

If Time travel is possible, we can also alter Time.

When we alter Time we are altering Events which have happened already.

If we alter them now, what happens to the Events that have taken place?

Take the general Theory of Relativity.

Einstein’s Theory states Light is the fastest traveling medium .

During his Time it was proved that there are particles that travel faster than Light.

Einstein replied that if they travel faster than the Velocity of Light, they no longer remain Matter!

The what is Matter?

Also note the Principles of Motion by Newton.

Newton uses the term velocity to indicate Speed as Speed can have negative integers, namely Positive and Negative.

How does a common Mind accept this?

And if we cover distances swiftly by travelling fast, then theoretically at least, at some velocity, we should be reaching the Destination before we left!

Motion is movement from One point to another, right.

Science axiom state that Space infinitely divisible.

So Motion will be covering infinite Space.

That means Motion is impossible!

Hoe does Indian Thought solve this problem?

By The Non Linear Theory of Time.

We shall deal with this, the concept of other Universes, The Concept of Infinity and Zero.

………….                                               To be continued

What if some kills himself/Father /Mother by going back in Time, what happens to his Existence?

Does he exist or not?

Physicists, based on Quantum Mechanics , declare that our Universal Laws do not apply to things /Events existing at other planes.

Hinduism and Science.

Science and Hinduism

Are there other planes of existence?

Do Multiverses exist as proved by The Quantum Theory?

What is Theory of Evolution of The Universe?

Did they anticipate Electric lights?

What is Infinity and are there particles that travel faster than Light?

Modern Science measures astronomical distances with the Unit of Light.

Is it the correct way or are there better ways?

What exactly is Sound?

How does a language affect one’s Life?

What exactly is Magnetism?

Did people know how to travel in Space?

If so,did they have a Craft and design and how was it fuelled?

Did our ancestors develop Weapons of Mass Destruction(WMD)?

How does it compare with Hydrogen,Atom and Neutron Bombs?

Or did they have Cluster Bombs and nerve gas ?

Did they possess the skills of Clairvoyance,Clairaudience,Telepathy and Kinetasis?

To which Level had they evolved in terms of Military Strategy and battle Formations?

Test Tube babies-are they Modern developments?

Were they aware of Organ Transplants?

Were there aware Stem Cell Research and rejuvenation of dead Organs?

What is their view od Brain Death?

What about Genealogy ?

What are X and Y chromosomes?

Nan we predict the days on which you can have sexual inter course to beget a child of your choice?

Or what did they know of Consciousness and were there any records of “Near Death Experiences?

Did they know about the Organisation of Organisation Structure?

Were there any concepts that prove the Axioms of Science?

Did they have a system of Logic which overtakes the Logical Positivism of Bertrand Russell?

Have they developed the best language for Computer?

We shall in a Series of articles examine these thoughts and some more interesting points.

The examination will not be in “ we told you so’ mode but an exposition of facts taken from our Texts ,

The Vedas,

The Ramayana, of Valmiki

Adhyatma Ramayana

The Mahabharata,

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali

Nyya Vaasishtam by Vasishta.

Asthavakra Samhita

And many more and they will be referred to as and when required.

The Vishnu Purana .

Bhavishya Purana.

Kalki Purana.

Brahmanada Purana.

Saptha Bhangi Naya of Jainism.

Vigyana Vada of Buddhism.

Purva Mimaamsa

The Upanishads.

We will examine them and interpret them in the language of Modern Physics.

We would also predict the route Modern Science will take or ought to take and the results they are likely to get.

Why Some Yogis are Reborn Yoga Sutra 1.19

In Indian Philosophy on May 29, 2013 at 21:06

 

YoGa Sutra 1.19

Yaga Sutra 1.19

After talking about the Types of Samadhi,Patanjali now goes deeper  into the difference between on who has attained Samadhi,and those who attain it for a flash or intermittently.

To understand this concept one has to understand the Five Sheaths of Atman, Self, which at the Apara or Trancendental level is called Brahman.

The Five sheaths are,

Annamaya Kosa, Of Food

Pranamaya Kosa, Of Vital Breath,

Manomaya Kosa, Of Mind,

Vigyanamaya Kosa, Of Intellect and

Anandamaya Kosa Of Bliss.

The Atman is covered , as it were, by these sheaths.

Brahman is beyond these.

One who attains Samadhi goes beyond these sheaths.

( Buddhism also has these layers, but the Reality, in Buddhism,in Sunya or Zero, Nihilism>

It also describes The Sthula Sareera( Gross Body) The Sooksma sareera(The Subtle Body)

Hinduism also describes Sthula Sareera and Sookshma Sareera.

The attachment to the Physical Body or identifying the Atman or self with the Body is called the’ Dehatma Buddhi’

However much one tries various Yogas, this Dehatma Buddhi is difficult to get rid of.

Even those who attain Samadhi for a brief period of Time or for some time continuously are not cured of this Dehatma Buddhi.

Only those who are totally immersed in Samadhi( they can also carry out day-to-day activities of the Physical world) are the true Yogins.

Others are those who are unable to leave the Dehatma Buddhi.

These people know the limitations of the Physical  World, know that they are still in the grip of Dehatma Buddhi; but they will be connected to the Sukshma Sareera and be one with nature or Prakriti.

They are called Prakitilayars, one who is in tune with Nature.

Being connected and rooted to Suksma Sareera, they can not get rid of the subtle impressions created by the Physical activities.

Hence, they have to face the consequences of their actions and they carry Vaasanas or the remnants of Impressions.

So they are caught in the web of Samsara, of Births and deaths

Real Yogic State is attained only when one leaves the impressions,Chitta Vruttis.

This is possible only when one performs actions without attachment, as Lord Krishna explains in The Bhagavad Gita.

This detachment is the prerequisite for Yoga Sadhana.

Attachment Levels in Yoga.

The Levels of Attachment.

I.19. bhava pratyayo videha prakṛtilayānāṁ

bhava = objective existence, becoming
• pratyayah = cause, cognitive principle, content of mind, cognition
• videha = bodiless, disembodied
• prakriti = creative cause, subtlest material cause, nature
• layanam = dissolved, merged into
When such impressions remain, one retains the possibility (and the cause) of birth, even
after being freed from the present body and after becoming integrated with one’s own or
the cosmic nature. For, such impressions or memories nurture and perpetuate the
awareness of continued personal existence.

‘Universe A Master Computer Controlled’. Confirms Indian Thought.

In Astrophysics, Hinduism, India, Indian Philosophy on December 19, 2012 at 11:10

Recent Studies on the Universe speculate that there may be 10,500 Universes with different laws of Physics.

Based on String Theory this Study suggests that we might be a controlled by a Master Computer Programme with set patterns.

There could be a Super Computer controlling the Universes.

This Theory may be new to the West.

Indian philosophy ,asserts this Principle at different levels and systems.

1. Advaita.Or Non-Dualism postulates that the Universal basic Principle is One and That is called  Brahman.

This Principle is the essence of Being,Knowledge and Bliss.

The world as we see it is an Illusion(Maya).

(This Illusion is called as ‘Avidya or Nescience’ at the individual level and ‘Maya’or Illusion at the Macro level)

It is not to say that it does not Exist.

It has a Relative existence with in the laid down parameters.

The other Existence is called Absolute ‘where the words do not reach, nor thoughts operate’.

At this Absolute level, there are no Attributes or Qualities ,to use a common word.

This is Called the Nirguna Brahman.

Then what about the World we see and Live?

As said earlier it also Exists,though in a limited sense, with the qualities that can be perceived by the organs provided to us and also the make up of the External universe.

These Perceptions we have of our Daily Universe is limited in Space and Time, that is Finite,for we have the Mind is limited by its inability  to perceive without reference to Space and Time.

Immanuel Kant put it simple ‘Time and Space are the Goggles through which we perceive’

So the Universe is Finite for we conditioned to perceive the limited or the limited Nature of the Universe.

The different Universes that exist are regulated by other Laws and the Perceptive organs and the Laws are totally different.

There are 14 levels of Existence, each being controlled thus.

2.Theory of Karma. Karma means action.

Every action performed produces equal and opposite reaction.

When we complete an action, we have excluded the other choices presented to us.

Any choice presented has a set pattern.

So when only one option is taken the balance remain.

Action is a form of energy and once available can not be destroyed but can be changed.

Hence the opposite reactions for our actions and the remaining actions remain even after completion of action.

This remnant  Energy , since it originates from the Doer, the reactions are limited to the Doer alone.

This in short is the abstract of Karma Theory.

Karma is of three kinds.

Sanchita Karma-Total accumulation of the reactions of the actions of the  individual.

What ever we under go is due to a portion of the Karma that is taken out of the totality, Sanchita Karrma.

This Karma is called Prarabda Karma

The balance of the Sanchita Karma will take its course.

Then what about the actions we perform?

This is called Kriyamaana Karma which will yield results and to use banking term, will be credited or debited to your account.

An extension of this thought proves the existence of Life after Death and Rebirth.

As the quality of actions and consequently the reactions differ , one is assigned to different levels of Existence.

Buddhism,Jainism.The Theory of Karma is applied more stringently.Things differ from each other because of the rate at which they vibrate,

Higher the vibration subtler it becomes.

Lower it becomes Gross.

Actions create vasanas and vibrations and these results assign one to different levels of existence and worlds.

For more details please read my blogs filed under Indian Philosophy,Religion,Hinduism and for a detailed explanation of Time Theory refer my blog Time a Non Linear Theory.

Universe

universesandbox

“Imagine the situation where we get a big enough computer to simulate our universe, and we start such a simulation on our computers,” said professor Martin Savage, a physicists working on the project. “If that simulation runs long enough, and have same laws as our universe, then something like our universe will emerge within that simulations, and the situation will repeat itself within each simulation,” he said.

The current understanding of string theory indicates that there are 10,500 universes with different laws that determine the behaviour of particles within them, he said.

“So it is certainly true, that with enough computer resources, theorists would like to explore these universes ,” he added.

Explaining how the experiment works, physicists claim that finite computer resources mean that space time is not continuous but set on a grid with a finite volume, designed to create maximum energy subatomic particles. The direction these particles flow in will depend on how they are ordered on the grid. They will be looking at the distribution of the highest energy cosmic rays in order to detect patterns that could suggest that universe is the creation of some futuristic computer technology.

And if it does turns out that we are mere players in some sort of computer programme, they suggested that there may be a way to mess with the program, and play with the minds of our creators. “One could imagine trying to figure out how to manipulate the code, communicate with the code and questions that appear weird to consider today,” he said…

http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/2012-12-17/science/35868462_1_computer-resources-universe-simulation

The point that we can manipulate the master code is fallacious as the Finite can not manipulate the Infinite .

Some things never change. Physicists call them the constants of nature. Such quantities as the velocity of light, c, Newton’s constant of gravitation, G, and the mass of the electron, me, are assumed to be the same at all places and times in the universe. They form the scaffolding around which the theories of physics are erected, and they define the fabric of our universe. …

In recent years, however, the status of the constants has grown more muddled, not less. Researchers have found that the best candidate for a theory of everything, the variant of string theory called M-theory, is self-consistent only if the universe has more than four dimensions of space and time – as many as seven more. One implication is that the constants we observe may not, in fact, be the truly fundamental ones. Those live in the full higher-dimensional space, and we see only their three-dimensional “shadows.” …

In fact, string theory allows for a vast number – 10,500 – of possible “worlds” with different self-consistent sets of laws and constants. …

The constants are a tantalizing mystery. Every equation of physics is filled with them, and they seem so prosaic that people tend to forget how unaccountable their values are. Their origin is bound up with some of the grandest questions of modern science, from the unification of physics to the expansion of the universe.

http://www.nytimes.com/2005/06/26/weekinreview/26read.html?_r=0

After measuring alpha in around 300 distant galaxies, a consistency emerged: this magic number, which tells us the strength of electromagnetism, is not the same everywhere as it is here on Earth, and seems to vary continuously along a preferred axis through the universe,” Professor John Webb from the University of New South Wales said.

“The implications for our current understanding of science are profound. If the laws of physics turn out to be merely ‘local by-laws’, it might be that whilst our observable part of the universe favours the existence of life and human beings, other far more distant regions may exist where different laws preclude the formation of life, at least as we know it.”(science Daily.com)
