The man who sought a connection with Science and Vedic philosophy: The Great Nikola Tesla
Nikola Tesla a man whose work was the turning point in modern physics. Students of physics would be familiar with Tesla, the unit of magnetic flux. Elon Musk’s company’s name is in fact a tribute to the lost hero of modern physics.
When science and nature come together in harmony, advancements of never before could happen. Kind of like the Tesseract in Avengers, it could completely take human civilization to a world of a limitless source of energy.
Each day we understand the past rituals and customs had a significant scientific reason behind it. Even superstitions have a reason behind them although maybe now those reasons are insignificant because when a mirror is broken we do have electricity to light up the entire room to find the shiny crystals or even vacuum it off thus preventing us from stepping onto it by negligence.
Swami Vivekananda wrote a later to Tesla in the late 1800’s stating:
“Mr. Tesla thinks he can demonstrate mathematically that force and matter are reducible to potential energy. I am to go and see him next week to get this new mathematical demonstration. In that case, the Vedantic cosmology will be placed on the surest of foundations. I am working a good deal now upon the cosmology and eschatology of the Vedanta. I clearly see their perfect union with modern science, and the elucidation of the one will be followed by that of the other.” ~ Swami Vivekananda (Complete Works, VOL. V, Fifth Edition, 1347, p. 77)1
Among other things, Vivekananda and Tesla discussed the notions of prâna, âkâsha, and kalpas, three elementary concepts of the Vedantic doctrine. Respectively, these can be understood as vital energy, the ether, and the idea of the aeon. Prâna might be understood as a unit of energy, âkâsha as matter, and kalpas as time.
Tesla's understanding of Vedic terminology paved the way for a greater understanding of electromagnetism and the nature of the universe. This included the controversial "world system" for "the transmission of electrical energy without wires" that depends upon the electrical conductivity of the earth. Born on July 9 at midnight, Nikola Tesla's mother heard a lightning strike and declared that her child was a "child of the lightning". Indeed he lived up to his name even after centuries.
Have a nice day!
