I was a Speaker in a Function marking the occasion of the release of a Research Book “Downloading Nature‘s Secrets,From Akasa to Quantum Vacuum
Field by Sri.Lakshminarayananan Gopalan in Chennai on the Fifth of April 2014.
The book deals with the inadequacy of the present day Science, how the Vedas have anticipated these issues and how the Gayatri Mantra unlocks these secrets.
I shall be posting on this shortly.
Science, as we know , rests on certain Laws, which are assumed to be true,called Axioms.
These laws under strict laboratory identical conditions will operate and the same Cause will produce the same result.
The problem is you produce the conditions obtaining in Nature and you repeat them to produce the result, which obviously has to produce the same result.
In other words, Science tells you How and never Why.
But it assumes that it is final.
When you can not describe or define Why , your word is not final.
This applies to Science .
Let us take the Laws of Newton.
I shall not be discussing the exact definitions as it would be beyond the scope of this essay.
I shall deal with it later.
An object remains Inert until it is impelled by an External Force.
From where does this external force come ?
If it is assumed that it is in the Nature of things, as Axioms, then you are not solving the issue, but are ducking it and you are offering the Mechanics of Motion, that’s all.
In my view this does not matter, as it does not tell me any thing new in terms of my inquiry content.
For the average person, whether we know how a Thing moves does not matter so long it moves.
Things were falling to the ground even before Newton discovered Gravity.
Even if we are blissfully unaware of it , still Gravity would function.
However these theories have their uses in that these help in developing technologies that help(?) Man.
The second law that the rate of Momentum being directly proportionate to the force applied is also thrown out of this discussion as the first law on which this is derived from is not answering the question.
The same to the Third Law of Motion.
Science also harbors under the strain of Space and Time.
Unless we understand Space and Time we may not be able to understand the Laws of Nature and These terms Space and Time remain undefined till date.
At best, there are only descriptions and that too are being contradicted more or less on a daily basis.
As Emmanuel Kant put it,”Space and Time are the Two goggles through which Man perceives” Remove these,you can not conceive of anything , let alone perceive!
Coming back to the Theory of Motion, we now have research going on in CERN, Geneva, to find the God Particle.
As we all know the Atom consists of Electrons, Protons and Neutron.
Electrons and protons move around the Neutron. Now, when an object moves it creates energy.
So where do the Energies from these electrons and protons go?
Again, the movement of these seem to be directed.
Scientist want to find it as they have theoretically found that there must be some particle or force that directs these electrons and protons .
So the search goes on. Now apply this to the Movement of galaxies that spins and move, The same Laws apply.
And there is is this Theory of Expanding Universe which states that the Universe is expanding with each object in the Universe hurling away from each other and this has been proved by the Infrared shift of the Spectrum.
If these things keep on moving away from each other, where is does it end?
Where is the Edge of the Universe? Einstein tried to solve this through he general Theory of Relativity.
Appropriate at this point, is that the Space and Time become One Universe at one point and that Time can travel both forwards and backwards.
And it can recoil on it self and there are Time Worms.
Then we have the Black-holes, which are assumed not to let even light rays to escape from it.
And Time runs backwards there and, theoretically if one were to enter a Black-hole, he might enter the Past travel through the Future and emerge in the Present!
And this gives rise, along with the effort to find the God particle leads us to Quantum Theory and Multi verses.
