Physics and Yoga, same symphony
Max Planck (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Planck), whose work on Quantum Theory won him Nobel Prize in Physics, has this to say:
“All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.”
― Max Planck
“There can never be any real opposition between religion and science; for the one is the complement of the other. Every serious and reflective person realizes, I think, that the religious element in his nature must be recognized and cultivated if all the powers of the human soul are to act together in perfect balance and harmony. And indeed it was not by accident that the greatest thinkers of all ages were deeply religious souls”
― Max Planck
“Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are part of nature and therefore part of the mystery that we are trying to solve.”
― Max Planck
Einstein adds in his words,
“Human being is a part of the whole, called by us Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest-a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty.
The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.
The finest emotion of which we are capable is the mystic emotion. Herein lies the germ of all art and all true science. Anyone to whom this feeling is alien, who is no longer capable of wonderment and lives in a state of fear is a dead man. To know that what is impenetrable for us really exists and manifests itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, whose gross forms alone are intelligible to our poor faculties – this knowledge, this feeling … that is the core of the true religious sentiment. In this sense, and in this sense alone, I rank myself among profoundly religious men.
Further Einstein says that one must cultivate mystic quality and tame the intellect to be subordinate of awe / wonder, “We should take care not to make the intellect our god; it has, of course, powerful muscles, but no personality. – Albert Einstein”
It totally ties in with the same conclusion that Rishis / experienced practitioners of Spirit have reached since time immemorial. Conciousness exists without Vibration, Mind, Energy, Matter. Einstein has solved the equation between the last two (Energy and Matter).
Simplistically, mind is not a “production” of brain. Mind is the “noise” in the brain machinery when electricity (prana) chooses to keep the brain engine revving. Intelligence is not product of the brain either, Super-Intelligence, trillion to infinite times more than Human Intelligence is already present in every dot point of space, brain merely “taps” into it. Changing the brain structures or wiring by various practices is like cleaning the brain “window” to allow more light “super intelligence” come through inside the house.
I had not understood for a long long time that indeed “Finding your origin” is the aim of life. For most the aim of life is lost is one of the outward activities and million conundrums of existence. Rightly so, because the machine that has been set in motion does have this energy and momentum that keeps it going even if the breaks are applied now. He who has found “Him”, his search is over saith PY. Teacher informs, Guru Transforms.
To sum it up, the Heart Centre, the 4th of the 7th centre is the place of intuition or perception of the entire universe, referred to in the Vedas as Anahata Chakra, or in Book of Revelation as “Seven Churches”, Einstein had already stumbled upon it for he says “There is no logical way to the discovery of elemental laws. There is only the way of intuition, which is helped by a feeling for the order lying behind the appearance. – Albert Einstein”
Thus, Einstein was worthy to untie the laces of Christ.
