Why Brahma faded out of prominence?

The Gods have been supposed to rule prior to the descent of man. When a man showed up on the earth it is believed the Gods have already left the firmament. But this doesn’t explain why Brahma, the God of creation in Hindu mythology faded away into obscurity? The laws of Manu grace the stature of Brahma though, in modern and recent times, Brahma has taken a backseat while more festivity is bestowed upon Lord Shiva.

As according to Puranas it was Vishnu who first appeared then the Brahma was born who proceeded with the creation. So Brahma is somewhat relegated to Vishnu in stature and thus Brahma has been ignored by the worshippers. Moreover there is a story that goes a certain Rishi put on some questions to Brhama who didn’t respond and in turn, the Rishi cursed Brahma that in present-day Kalyuga no one would worship him.

Consciousness at the root of Philosophy

Consciousness, the primordial sea containing matter and energy from which I instantiate the whole of reality must be the topic of concern for all Philosophy. All Philosophy is rooted in the idea of consciousness. If I ascribe the sea of consciousness emanating from matter, then I am a materialist otherwise I am an idealist. As we see the sea of consciousness as existing is because of the nominative I or the ego beyond which the sea does not exist at all. That is all reality is with the presence of Ego.

All consciousness, matter, and energy are waves at different rates of vibrations. Thus matter and energy manifest as a vibration which we call consciousness. While matter and energy are physical and measured in the laboratory, consciousness is spiritual and could be measured through mystic intuition.

We cannot reduce consciousness to the quantum model where though the matter is a manifestation of consciousness, uncertainty principle cannot endow us with free will. Still, quantum Physics stands to testify that sea of consciousness as a vibration of matter and energy. So consciousness can be studied as in conjunction with Physics and Psychology

From nothingness to infinity

Nothingness and there on to something in this life and then going on to meet infinity is the fate of the soul. The soul begins its journey from nothingness like the universe beginning from nothing. The soul then attains something or some value in its existence upon the earth. Finally, it must embrace the infinity in the end. But all through its existence upon the earth, the soul has free will as the wavefunction collapses to meet indeterminacy.

Free will lends the soul a support to choose whatever destiny has in store for it, though everything is freely calculated from time-space slice beforehand. We know the time-space continuum but we don’t know what’s in store for us. It has to be lived through indeterminacy. Hence infinity turns out to be a natural destiny of the soul.

So do we have a moral responsibility for our actions? not much. Since the fate is the same for every organism, the organism is not morally responsible for his actions. Moreover, the indeterminacy calculates the action taken as the logical consequence of all the actions that are taken alongwith, like a wavefunction takes all the possibilities and then finally resolving with the final outcome.

 

Simultaneity of time-space

There is strange connectedness in things that have made it to reality apart from necessity is the will to be that material world or which the matter exhibits. So does matter have a will? The matter has a consciousness that is subliminal in the sense it is there yet not aware of itself but of the other world that is beyond it.

According to Jung, the supernatural or extrasensory phenomena does exist. So the subliminal nature of matter is verified in the plausibility of Quantum Physics.

What is beyond reflection or fantasy of reality is the unknown unconscious world that lay as a condition of life to search for meaning.  Ego- adaptive world seeks meaning in one life that is lived.

The observed one and the observer are one in reality for it is the subject interference that causes the observer to observe the reality and ending up observing himself. It could be that all events are simultaneous to the existence and the observation is an illusion of doing observation

So if we overcome the very existence of ego by transcending space through beliefs in the extrasensory perception, we will see the interconnectedness of all events that are happening as if God at his helm is driving through the life. So we yield to dissolving the intuition of space and time into a state of blissful oneness with the cosmos.

Philosophy- the knowledge of the self

Philosophy is what is formed of the essential determination of thought. Essentially an idea exists for self-determination that it weighs as truth.The element of Philosophy is not abstract or non-actual but it is formed through abstractions though that the abstract thought has refined itself in the instantiation of something actual and moving from non-actual to actual we reach at the conclusion which forms the nerve of Philosophy. This whole movement constitutes what is the truth in Philosophy whether it is the idea of time or of being or of time and being. In either case, we begin with abstract non-actuality of time existing as discrete quanta and moves on to the exact instantiation of time as happening at a particular moment, So it is the appearance of time in the form of event in the time-space continuum that we confront that what has in effect brought in itself as truth.

From actual, we proceed to the knowledge of the self, the inherent seed of Brahman existing in nutshell as the unity of cosmos.The true is thus revealed to us in the form of knowledge of the self that we have moved or become actual from non-actual.So, in the end, we have determinate thoughts taking shape in the form of self-knowledge.

What is beautiful and what is not?

Beauty as it seems is a reflex behaviour of nervous system as in the case of Narcissus the look or glare at beautiful object is a reaction to what is not beautiful.  Narcissus stares at himself for there is no other idea which makes him look ugly.So before we conclude the idea of beauty we must discourse upon what is not beautiful. To describe the not so beautiful object, there is one word mundane meaning its boring to look at non -beautiful objects which hardly means it is exhilarating to look at beautiful objects.

We begin with Narcissus what impels him to keep on staring at himself? Whatever it is ,it is surely not mundane and neither too exhilarating. It must be beautiful. So within the limits of mundane and exhilarating we find a moment when an object of our own device compels us to keep on staring at it as if it were our own fond object. Yes, an object is beautiful if we are fond of it. But beauty is more than that. Beauty is ideation about existence where the absolute of existence matters more than that of mere existence. The turning of an object into beauty for us is a moment where the existence of object is absolute such that any relative consideration about anything else is redundant.

What is not beautiful hence is what is redundant of an object that we can’t desire to have. So the beauty must be an ideal thought of absolute existence for which becoming into anything else is redundant. Thus for Narcissus there is absolute existence for him in his reflection and hardly there is any other essence about himself other than beauty.

what causes the objects to be beautiful is the super-symmetry, for every symmetrical arc of an object there is an equally symmetrical other arc which reinforces the structure of the object as primary to the essence of object. Such objects are beautiful and there is hardly any other reason to have anything as attribute for the object.

Differences between Philosophy and Physics

Nowadays there is assimilation of Philosophy into Physics and Physics has begun to play archetypal role Philosophy once used to play. Philosophy has begun to cave into the mathematical constructs of Physics as legitimate science to explain the phenomenon of the universe and the world alike. But at the core the functions of Philosophy and Physics are quite different and Philosophy by virtue of its distinct function might enjoy the independence and dominance it once had over the world till Physics grew on to explain much of the nature as we know today. The differences between Philosophy and Physics are as follows.

  1. Physics deals with complete body of knowledge while Philosophy has incomplete knowledge that has to be discoursed about. Physics presents complete set of understanding of nature while Philosophy demands the elucidation of knowledge about nature.
  2. Physics is synthetic in nature as it doesn’t depend upon linguistics to explain the workings of nature while philosophy is analytic that language must explain the working of nature through analytic judgement.
  3. Physics deals with formation of nature while Philosophy touches upon the conception. Physics describes the ‘form’ of nature as opposed to the essence that is basically talked in Philosophy in relation to existence. Physics wants to know the form of universe while Philosophy knows the concept of universe.
  4. Physics is with ‘howness’ while Philosophy describes ‘whatness’. Physics deals with how the nature works while Philosophy deals with what the nature is about.

So Philosophy of Physics is important as to see how a particular form of nature like for example quarks bring about concepts of being in the universe so as to explain the what part of quark is responsible in passing analytic judgement about the’ being in universe’.
