Towards Unification of Sciences attempts to develop harmony among vedic science, spiritual science and modern science.

Editor’s note

The first five papers in this issue analyze about our scientific study of the material systems of different domains. Our study of solar system, atomic system and galactic system is independent and system based. The early attempts in modeling the atomic system in the light of the structure of solar system (planetary atomic model) failed in providing stability of the structure and justifying the spectra. Thereafter quantum atomic model was developed with satisfactory explanation to spectra of atom. The atomic model was further improved by associating the wave mechanics to explain the fine spectra. After lapse of a century Prof. Mohanty once again made an attempt to visualize the structure of atom in the light of the structure of solar system. Prof. Mohanty suggested some changes at basic level to justify complete similarity between solar system and atomic system. He has also shown similarity between solar system and galactic system. In his analysis all centrally organized systems have a common structure and features. The approach and logic in the papers written by him is convincing and a universal theory for centrally organized structure for all domains of nature looks feasible. His new identification of the cause of electric charge in matter due to non-equilibrium association of mass and space in atomic and subatomic particle has led to success in visualizing different non-electric charges in matters of other domains. The structural similarity in matters of different domains matches well with the structural & functional similarity between microcosm (Pinda) and macrocosm (Brahmanda), a vital Vedic philosophy. The 100 years growth-period of science is a long period since inception of modern science but it is a very short period if the growth of science is counted from Vedic period. Making changes in basic concept of modern science is not late if it helps to develop a unified science for comprehensive understanding of nature. The extra nuclear electric and thermal structures of the earth and other planets have scope to develop the charge field structure in extra-nuclear space structure of atom. The papers of prof. Mohanty are thought provoking and quite interesting.

The other three papers illuminate about ‘materialism’ in ancient Indian context, ‘disaster management’ and ‘Brahman’, both in Vedic perspective. As regards the thought of materialism, the world view mostly centers on the philosophy of monism adopted in western world during the last few centuries. In this article, the author Prof. Barik, by outlining its existence in Indian society since ancient times, has proven that Indian thought was far ahead.  He describes threadbare about the ancient Indian philosophy based on materialism pursued by various schools of thought including that of the dominant Charvak-Lokayat school.  However, free thought systems always existed within the free Indian society, hence, due to the ensuing thinking and cross-thinking process, the materialism thought got marginalized, nevertheless, Indian thought became richer and relevant. ‘Disaster management’ in Vedic perspective is definitely going to provide the readers a wonderful reading. The author Prof. Arya, citing Kautilya’s Arthasastra, has provided clear-cut definitions of ‘disaster’, and details of its fixation, preventive measures, mitigation, and restoration of the basic structures and functions, all in ancient India. Again, citing Yajurveda, he has mentioned how the ancient Indian people desired peace, balance, and harmony everywhere, which is the best way of avoiding disaster. Finally, he concludes: “The ancient Indian concept of disaster definitely goes with the modern ‘management’ ideas.” The last paper is a scientific exploration on ‘Brahman’, the ultimate reality and fundamental concept in Vedic philosophy. Although the subject matter is highly complex and full of mystery, the author, Mr. Acharya, has simplified it through a very lucid description – his approach to unravel the mysteries of Brahman is praiseworthy. By meticulous examination of key references, slokas, and sutras from Vedas and Upanishads, he has not only provided insights into Brahman’s relationship with consciousness, cosmology, and the fabrics of existence itself, but has also drawn parallels between Brahman and contemporary scientific concepts. 

In essence, this issue successfully steps ‘towards unification of science’ and probably puts a few steps beyond.
