If it is not about consciousness, the next curiosity has been about space, time and matter. Is space finite or infinite? If space is expanding, where is it expanding into? What is time? Are there extra dimensions to space? Is time the 4th dimension? How many dimensions are present? How does space and time relate to consciousness? If consciousness was not present, would there be space and time? Is this whole universe just a thought? Is there a consolidated thought that ties all living beings together?
Surya Siddanta, the ancient sanskrit literature, when translated in the context of "emergence of reality", answers just these questions. The concepts presented are surprisingly different and highly thought provoking, making us question our own science which we hold as undisputable. The Surya Siddanta describes the various steps involved the formation of reality, as it traverses from that incomprehensible, unmanifested qualityless truth to the formation of an Individual. This book explores the ideas, the principles and concepts presented in Surya Siddanta, and explains the steps presented with equivalent examples as seen in technologies created by us.
About the author
By Profession, I am a software engineer. Currently, my primary hobby is to decode the upanishads and sanskrit mantras that I have been taught from young age to revere and respect. Along the way, I have realized that most of the translations I have been taught have been flawed and influenced by the beliefs and devotion of the person repeating it to me. The meanings have become subjective and hence have lost their original teachings, ideas and concepts.
When these same works of literatures are translated with a different context set to them, they take on a totally new meaning. A meaning which is simply awesome and much more deeper than any of the superstitious meanings that have been fed to me. A science that even the modern science has failed to grasp and understand. If these works of literature are really the truth, then the ancient intellects and thinkers truly should be lauded to be able to see so far beyond this reality around us.
Whether the meaning is something that is only acceptable to me or many others is something I do not know. But, this hobby of mine got me thinking what if these translations really were the truth? What if truly we are able to hold our minds and body steady to look further, to know further, to understand the fundamentals.
I write both fictional and non-fictional books. The fictional novels are my attempt to imagine how if would be if these ancient books are really the truth and we are able to act upon them. The non-fictional books are my attempt at explaining how these ancient works of literature translate to understanding the reality around us.
I hope you enjoy these books as much as I do translating, understanding and writing them.
