Y – I can not parse your meaning, i.e. I have no idea what you are trying to say.
Still have no idea what you are trying to say.
X – What I’m trying to say is to point at core insights within Eastern philosophy (Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism), particularly in advaita Vedanta – but also in Christianity and Islam in their highest metaphysical conceptions. If you are not interested in any of this, that’s alright.
Actually, whatever science – and its highfaluting ‘scientific method’ – is is shot through with difficulties and controversies, including the sacrosanct falsifiability principle (or dogma). Just read the Wickipedia article on this (and on rationality, etc.) and the respective positions of Khun, I. Lakatos, and P. Feyerabend among others. You must know something about all this already if you are scientifically inclined.
Y – What “core insights”? There is nothing insightful about making up unevidenced tosh, anyone can do it and each piece of tosh has exactly equal validity, none.
And with regard to your ludicrous and unfounded “criticism” of the scientific method, I have one response, yea shall know them by their fruits.
X – Tesla understood the Sanskrit terminology and philosophy and found that it was a good means to describe the physical mechanisms of the universe as seen through his eyes. It would behoove those who would attempt to understand the science behind the inventions of Nikola Tesla to study Sanskrit and Vedic philosophy.” ~Toby Grotz, President, Wireless Engineering – See more at:http://www.scienceandnonduality….
(Apparently) ‘Tesla was unable to show the identity of energy and matter, this did not come until Albert Einstein published his paper on relativity, which was known in the East for the last 5000 years.
Tesla’s vision of the wireless transmission of electricity and free energy has been postponed for almost one hundred years now.
Bohr, Heisenberg and Schrödinger regularly read Vedic texts.
Heisenberg stated: “Quantum theory will not look ridiculous to people who have read Vedanta. Vedanta is the conclusion of Vedic thought.”
The famous Danish physicist and Nobel Prize winner, Laureate Niels Bohr (1885-1962) was a follower of the Vedas. He said, “I go into the Upanishads to ask questions.” Both Bohr and Schrödinger, the founders of quantum physics, were avid readers of the Vedic texts and observed that their experiments in quantum physics were consistent with what they had read in the Vedas.
Niels Bohr got the ball rolling around 1900 by explaining why atoms emit and absorb electromagnetic radiation only at certain frequencies.
Then, in the 1920′s Erwin Schrödinger (1887-1961), an Austrian-Irish physicist, who won the Nobel prize, came up with his famous wave equation that predicts how the Quantum Mechanical wave function changes with time. Wave functions are used in Quantum Mechanics to determine how particles move and interact with time. –
Schrödinger wrote in his book Meine Weltansicht:
“This life of yours which you are living is not merely a piece of this entire existence, but in a certain sense the whole; only this whole is not so constituted that it can be surveyed in one single glance. This, as we know, is what the Brahmins [wise men or priests in the Vedic tradition] express in that sacred, mystic formula which is yet really so simple and so clear; tat tvam asi, this is you. Or, again, in such words as “I am in the east and the west, I am above and below, I am this entire world.”’
I call those: ‘insights’ (you were asking me): the ancient Vedic seers’ and contemporary physicists’ (and sages – a word you won’t like). ‘Choleric’: related etymologically to black bile (one of the four humors of Greek and ancient philosophy). From your frequent spouting of words such as ‘tosh’ (never heard it before), I am wondering whether you are of that temperament. Nothing wrong, and no harm meant. But I am thinking that I should finally be done with you, that is, with this issueless dialogue. Do you reciprocate (so you have the last word)? I have enjoyed our exchange, thank you. Regards,
Y- Comment: “I got as far as “relativity”, which was known in the East for the last 5000 years.”
Go away you utter loony. [End of dialogue]
