    The fact the scientists believe: The universe is governed by laws—itself connotes—its creation is based on certain laws. If there are laws for its creation, as is being accepted, then it is a foregone conclusion that these laws were there even before its creation! The students of cosmology know that any mass that goes into the black hole, its particles do not return to our universe. For all we know, these might be joining some other baby universe! This probability looks good within the gambits of general theory of relativity.
    When we accept the fact of determined laws, we automatically accept the issue of Creation: that it had a beginning. Anything that is created has its beginning. We therefore come to the same old conclusion that life is finite and its creation—physical bodies are finite too. Creation itself is finite. It was created on a ‘Principle’ and is governed on well-defined laws. How it evolved from an Infinite-Principle is not the subject matter of science fraternity, unless they function in unison with the spiritualists and try to know subtle worlds of mind-spirit-divinity!
    Likewise spiritualists should also remain within their confined boundaries and should not venture into answering questions, which do not fall within their domain. Whenever the ‘thinkers/philosophers’ tried to don the role of scientists of natural sciences, they have miserably failed. Not that these two fields are separate or unrelated to each other. Only their system of education is different and unlike each other. That is why any one who is not adequately qualified in one system of science cannot be expected to, automatically, claim expertise of the other. The result of such an exercise has always been disastrous.
    The l.s who is the source of these ‘work’ has also delved in the unknown fields of science and it is a foregone fact that he being a novice, he might have faltered enormously! There are countless instances of such foolish ventures, especially from the religionists, which compel the good intentioned, well informed intellectuals to keep away from their home-spun ‘theories’—which have mushroomed in as many religious sects—that they simply spurn them. Their disdain is justified. Just one example, a repetition of course:
    “According to Jewish, Christian and Islamic traditions, the universe was created only in the recent past. (In seventeenth century Bishop Ussher calculated a date of 4004 BC, for the creation of the universe, a figure he arrived at by adding up the ages of people in the Old Testament).
    “According to St. Augustine (Book of Genesis) it is 5000 years. “But according to Vedic Scriptures, a ‘Purant’ cycle is completed in 311,040,000,000,000 years.
    Just see the difference!
    The ancient Indian astronomy like other disciplines of science was far ahead of the West. Rather it would not be an exaggeration to mention here that the Westerns were behaving like barbarians, while this country was reveling, both in spiritual enlightenment and material abundance. How the West treated their scientists can just be imagined by the fates of Copernicus, Bruno and Galileo! The treatment meted out to them is still fresh in the minds of the present generation of scientists. Had this fraternity taken our scriptures seriously, especially Upanishads, their ridicule towards spiritualism would have been subdued substantially. As to how much scientific methodology has been followed in decoding the spiritual ‘thought’; there is always an element of doubt and disbelief in the minds of research scholars! As their testing ground of new discoveries is the laboratory, not the spatial realms of the mind. But pseudo spiritual quacks, unlike the genius cosmologists, are presently at a premium to hazard wild ‘prophesies’, because most of the theories relating to cosmology are yet to be proved. To the misfortune of the Western scientists, the depth of insight of their ruling masters is not remotely in consonance with the new discoveries made in the fields of matter. They wasted the golden opportunity they had, for two hundred years of rule over India—for learning the sciences, this country had the mastery on. The ancient Indian ‘thought’ on matter and spirit is so deep that even the present day scientists with all the facilities at their command, cannot in their wildest imagination, touch upon the outer fringes of the vast ocean of knowledge, which this country’s masters of yore had probed in the realms of Conscious and which is immanent in matter and spirit. The basic essence of their ‘thought’ was: The innate nature of matter is conscious. This is a clear line of division between the matter and spirit: between the scientists and the wise: between the knowledge of science and Divine. Where the present theories about Creation lead to, is in fact, the starting point of the spiritualists in their Sadhna(quest)!

    The commonly accepted theory of singularity takes the scientists to the edges of dissolution (black hole), where all physical laws fail and even time comes to a stop. This scenario indicates the end of matter. On the contrary, this is the point, from where the role of the spiritualist begins. For when matter is totally annihilated: the state wherein, not only the gross particles de-materialize, but those also which create matter, transmute into pure conscious; the science has done its job. There is nothing left of the universe or its constituents for the scientists to discover any more! The matter including its laws having reached their ultimate, have met their Nadir!
    There is another theory in vogue, when all laws fail: Absolute takes over and no law applies to It since an Absolute is causeless: That state of Singularity is the Absolute. All laws, which were sustaining the existence of the universe, are regressed in That (Big-Crunch). This is the ultimate truth of matter. Again after some time—to restart the cycle of evolution, pre-determined Sankalp/will (as time has lost its relevance), Absolute re-activates its conscious—not that conscious in its pure state ever becomes un-conscious—and sets in motion those forces which starts the process of creating another replicate of Creation.
    Though this is an excellent theory, it shall never be proved! It will remain only in equations. After thousands of years, when the scientists are able to erect an artificial replicate of the universe; the Principle, which sustains the Creation, would remain still illusive and hence shall never be in their hands, since the domain of physical sciences is always limited within the parameters of the universe and its creations and its laws and intelligence! Whereas the realms of Conscious and the Supreme-Intelligence are beyond the ‘concept’ of mind and its gross conscious, which is the synthesis of the Creation or the vice versa!
    Howsoever far the scientific theories may take the human imagination, but these are not going to satisfy him. Man is in the search of the Ultimate Theory, not to find its dead ends. Its finiteness also shall not make him happy. Even when he is able to unveil its secrets of creation, he would not like its finiteness. He also does not want the state of either singularity or un-certainty. What he wants is its immortality, not mortality. Because only in its immortality, will he find his immortality! He simply does not want to die. He wants to live forever. This is possible only if he finds the secrets of creation’s immortality. Just look at the height of his naivety: In this finite world he wants to search the seeds of his Immortality!Whether he succeeds ultimately, only time—whose own invincibility is in question—shall determine! But it would be a futile exercise, which the humanity will realize, only after spending a good fortune; that the nature of Creation is same, from where he had begun his research: That Nature is finite like its creations. Only the Principle that keeps its wheels going endlessly, looks constant, eternal and above the natural laws!

    Human Nomenclature. The problem among the spiritualists and the scientists is neither very old nor of any deeper nature. Instead of considering it a problem, it is merely an aptitude aberration of looking at the same ‘object’ from two different angles. In fact this deficiency in outlook does not prevail in the ‘higher’ classes of both the fraternities. At such an elevated field of intelligence these minion distractions have no scope, as minds are then elevated to the spatial realms. Only lower minds bereft of rich thought content indulge in the vagaries of mind. Instead of probing the ultimate depth of the mind, and in the process discovering these realms, viz. Super-Mind, Higher-Mind, Illuminated-Mind, and finally the Over-Mind, we waste our energies in religious engagements. These four levels of consciousness of human mind represent different elevation states of conscious, which a subject encounters. Since this is not topic of our discussions at the moment, it is suffice to state here that nothing is beyond the scope of mind. First we have to elevate ourselves to its charted heights, only then we can attain the state of Over-Mind, which in Vedhaanthik(science dealing with spirituality) parlance, is known as the state of “Amanaka” (Mindlessness). Once the mind is withdrawn, only the principal of Aathma(soul/spirit) i.e. the Super-Consciousness exists.
    Now let us pause and ponder as to which stream or ‘thought’ of Western literature has enlightened on these levels of the Conscious! Even the present day masters of gospel, belonging to various sects, are minting money and fame by befooling the innocent public, eulogizing on matters which are not distantly related to spiritualism. They merely indulge in cheap mockery of ritualism and, now, the (de-) famed practice of worship of Naam-Dhaan (guru-disciple kinship through the medium of Guru-Manthar—spiritual formula with the potency of Guru’s revelation, which he, supposedly, passes on to his disciples). Their thought content is as shallow, in their oratory, as it is absent in the Western literature of ‘spirit’—or it is that of the matter! Even in this discipline Western approach on the subject is very poor. In ancient India, there were six schools of thought (Philosophy): Nyaya-Vaishaishik school postulate “At the beginning of each Kalpa (each Creation), numbers of atoms and molecules unite to form different objects with different qualities—-“. So our seers had discovered the secrets of the origin of Creation and were fully aware of its composition of atoms and matter etc. (all this happened much before the advent of Greek civilization)
    Suddenly with the advent of machine age, there has been a sea change in methodology of our education; with the result that our values of life changed too. With the introduction of gadgetry of comforts in our daily lives, our outlook towards deeper meaning of life has also shown downslide in moral standards. The reason for this is simple enough: Previously the institutes of education in secular and spiritual disciplines were in the control of the experts, who were highly specialized in their respective fields. Unfortunately their ownership has passed into those hands, whose only qualification is money. Further, advance in IT has produced a new class of ‘over-night’ billionaires. Money has usurped those fields, which it was not remotely concerned with. Today media is sitting as baron over the minds of innocent people, specially the younger generation, who cannot discriminate what type of data (knowledge), should go in their raw brains. It is not surprising that the owners of Newspapers, T.V channels, Magazines, Film productions, Satellites, Publishing houses and what not, are those very barons, who belong to jet-set class, bathing in slushy funds. It is an open secret; most of these moneyed people’s means of earning money have been of dubious nature. They hold degrees in debauchery, sex, scandal, extravagant living and open disregard, not only for law but for decency also. Then how can we expect any finer innovation from their licentious brains, which are always browsed in lower minds?
    Even then nothing is lost. There is still no dearth of genuine masters in both the fields. Only their voices are lost in the din of IT czars: Similar has been the fate of present day literature. Fabulous sum of money is paid to writers on their so-called master pieces. It is really a matter of shame—for the students of literature—to even read these books, which are not fit to be considered for critical evaluation. Again it is a matter of disgrace; the evaluator class too belongs to their category. All are paid stooges. They write, what is expected of them, for a price. For the moneyed, it is their business and business for them is production of more cheap goods on cheap rates, to sell them at higher rates for pocketing hefty profits. Their products are produced on demand. They are firstly produced; thereafter their market is created by lavish advertising. For all this, only we are responsible: Those who compromise their conscience and those who encourage such excursions in serious subjects, and by those who are least qualified for the job! With the result, works of old masters, geniuses, seers have been sidelined or misdirected with the active connivance of day’s littérateurs—for a price of course—and our lost generations have paid the price either in the battle fields or in the depravity of their minds.

    Anyway this also is not our subject at hand, or it would become a lengthy thesis, to trace the background of slavery which ultimately leads to subjugation of mind. Foreign invaders very systematically erased our system of education and polluted our minds by coercion, bribe or power. Our ancient race on earth, the proud progeny of a rich culture, was not only ancient but perfected almost every aspect of life. Nature and its sciences flourished in those times to the extent, that these are the subject matter of those experts who proclaim themselves the world leaders. But our spirit did not die, nor could it be banished by the invaders. Even though India remained under foreign rule for over twelve hundred years, its flames of spirit, codified in Vedhas, Upanishads, Brahamsuther, was kept alive by our seers, saints and great acharaaryas (teachers). The main source of Brahman Vidhya(cosmic education) —by knowing which everything else is known—are Vedhas which are called Sruthis or those texts which were originally heard or received by the sages directly from the Supreme Being in the state of heightened illumination and deep silence, and were then passed on to their disciples in an excellent oral system of teaching and learning till they were compiled by Sage Vyass. This is perhaps the greatest gift of God to man: what Aldous Huxley calls the ‘perennial philosophy’ of man’s life’. This rich legacy was passed on from generation to generation. Besides our mothers played a great role in preserving our culture, by keeping its traditions alive at their homes, even in hostile environs. The result is that we are half-baked citizens: an amalgamation of alien and of our own cultures!
    Every intellectual is well conversant by now with the depth of Western ‘thought’, as it existed since its origin from Socrates (through Plato), Plato, Aristotle and the later addition of the last two hundred years. Their main thrust of quest was society and its creations: thus their extension of thought was confined within its structures. As a result, their specializations were confined to society, viz. sociology, economics, religions, psychology and passions etc. their approach toward Reality was only prophetical. At the most they delved merely on issues (not subjects) which our seers taught to their disciples in primary classes. They wasted so much of their time and energy on such trivial issues, like ‘Existentialism’, ‘Being’ etc. Had they or their hypocrite disciples in India, stepped down from their high pedestal of shallow egoism and paid a little attention to some of our scriptures, they would have discovered a gold mine of ‘thought’ contents, which far surpassed their limits of imagination.
    When Hiuen Tsang visited India (A.D.629-645), he stayed at Nalandha University for five yeas. There were nearly 10,000 teachers and students in the university, some of the students had come from foreign lands like Japan, Korea, Tibet, Nepal and China. Besides free education, all students were provided free food, clothes, beddings and medicines. Imparting of knowledge—which was universal in nature—was considered an act like any other spiritual practice. There were many other universities like Vikramsila, Valabhi, etc., which imparted the same system of education to the students. And this system had been in vogue before the Christian era. Imagine the foolhardiness of the West when they try to teach us the gambits of their cultural and religious bigotry!
    The l.s is not biased to West or being extraordinarily partial to ancient Indian ‘thought’. He himself, once, belonged to their class. His re-search on Indian thought began through Western writers. For him there are no boundaries, either in spiritual or secular worlds. For him there is only one caste and that is of humanity: one religion and that is of love: one language and that is of heart: One God, one Nature, one Religion, one Language and one Nation—that is, the entire humanity!
    The above, observations, though not a part of our subject at hand was essential, to understand better the hollowness of our claims that we are nearing our journey’s end!
    How immature of us to imagine that we are going to find the Unified ToE that would unravel the mysterious of the Creation! Or to assume, we are leading towards our perfection; both as a civilized human beings and in the evolutionary cycle!.

    There is no doubt about the fact that every unit of creation is the creation of Nature—as of its innate/inherited nature. Each unit is involved in some creation, however infinitesimal it might be, thereby contributing in the process of evolution—which is ever on its way to complete its journey by reaching its final goal. That goal happens to be the completion of its pre-determined road map. In the ultimate maturity of each of its unit, lies its end of the road: that in the attainment of perfection in each of its constituent lies its own perfection!
    Now we have to look at ourselves and the other units of Nature, to determine as to whether all are leading towards their assigned goal of perfection! But how are we are going to measure the authenticity of the tools, with which we shall determine the quantum of perfection of these ‘units’? Obviously the human intelligence, shall decide the issue! But what methodology are we going to adopt to measure the genuineness of our intelligence?
    Before searching for the answer, first, we shall have to accept the hypothesis that the whole is greater than the sum total of its parts! This is based on the analogy that the ‘whole’ subsumes its components or the components are created out the whole! There are other related factors, which shall be clear later on.
    The present system of measuring one’s rational intelligence, termed as “Intelligence Quotient”, is insufficient to determine factors which make life a success. Later psychologist made it more broad-based and coined it as “Emotional Quotient (EQ)”. It was done on the hypothesis that “we have two brains, two minds and two different kinds of intelligence, rational and emotional. That it is not just IQ, verbal and mathematical-logical capability, but emotional intelligence i.e. spatial capability, physical fluidity, musical capability, inter-personal intelligence, intra personal intelligence also that matters.” (Daniel Goleman). Still more research was done and it was found that these did not really help in assessing the true representation of a person! Another dimension was added in the area of intelligence, that of SQ, i.e. “Spiritual Intelligence” (Danah Zohar and Marshal). They consider it the basic foundation for an effective use of EQ and IQ.
    So at last spiritual factor is being accepted by the western intellectuals! It is needless to emphasize that every Oriental child, even before he starts walking on his two tiny feet, gets familiar with such terms like, religion, spiritualism, God etc. However it is very encouraging to note this change in the Western mindset.
    Coming back to our topic, even these three aspects of intelligence are not enough to understand true intelligence, which pervades in un-illuminated state, is embodied in us as well as in the cosmos, as C-I-C. The knowledge which we have acquired so far, however, is not an iota of the conscious intelligence since our method of grasping it is far too indoctrinated by the western system of ‘thought’, which in turn, keeps the mind away from true knowledge. With their system we can become efficient computers with highly developed IQ, EQ and SQ, but not wise. True knowledge is the domain of the wise. And wise are the one’s who are conscious of Cosmic-Intelligence. They are elevated to this state of consciousness, only after reaching the Illuminated state of mind. On the other hand, if all the knowledge of rational minds is put together, it would reveal, as to how ignorant we still are. Let us have a quick glance at the marvels of our discoveries!
    In the field of physics, we are talking about Unified ToE today, but are unsure about the true formation of the particles! Matter, anti-matter, dark-matter, black-hole, white-hole, are high on agenda, but what about the composition of our own earth!
    We have discovered the speed of light and have also developed means to regress its speed to zero. With Hubble satellite we are glancing at far off galaxies and have also stockpiled enough nuclear bombs to destroy our own planet many times over; prepared a complete map of DNA; and has also grown a human clone etc. etc.
    • But can we manufacture water, even if we know its formula?
    • Have we been able to reach even the fringe of our own galaxy?
    • Have we discovered a single medicine, which can obliterate, completely, any disease from our planet? We have yet to discover a medicine for a common cold! (Hurrah!)
    • Can we control the fury of the oceans, from wrecking havoc?
    • Have we been able to control anger, greed, lust etc., which are proving fatal to our own existence?
    • Crime, corruption, hunger, lawlessness—what have we done about these?
