Dr. D Bharadwaj,
Thanks for posting this inspiring article which shows
Paramacharya's keen interest in matters scientific.
Once I posted this:
If concepts of vedanta do match the depth of modern
sciences, mathematics, genetics, computer sciences
and management we should by all means pursue the
leads, though our main aim would be advaita.
But a clear distinction must be made between modern
sciences and the unscientific unsystematic humanities
subjects masquerading as "knowledge". E.g.,
European/IE linguistic grammar as we know today. I
stopped using the word consonant after I found the
term "sonant consonant". My first question on hearing
this term was: Are there any non-sonant consonants?
If there are, they can not be logically called
"con"sonants any more because they are not sonant.
Agreeably in some cases scientific concepts can not be
mapped one-to-one with Hindu shastras
(e.g., logarithmic scales vs Carnatic scales). In these
cases Hindu shastras follow their own mathematics the
nature of which is still unknown.
