Pranams Mr.Mahesh,

Thanks for your mail.

I am a Finance guy, I am not very much aware of science. But, if there
is a scientific method to make a Brahmachary (like Beeshma) to
understand the sexual feelings; or to make an orphan understand the pain
of bereavement; or to make a blind man understand the colours then,
there might be a chance to infer consciousness without experience.

If we can infer through our senses through the scientific methods, then
there is no need for all these shastras. They are there, just because,
we cannot understand through our limited senses. 


 While you cannot effectively describe how a gulabjamun tastes, the idea
that one can infer from science that the certain chemical constituents
the sweet cause the sweet taste. In fact, one could, in a laboratory,
breakdown the 'taste' portion of the sweet only and give it to a person
say that due to this chemical, you get the said taste.
 My whole point in relation to science and shastras is that can we infer
that consciousness is the reality that talked of in the shastras through
scientific approach. We might now realize it but can it be inferred?
 Humble pranams, Mahesh
