1. Force-fields (Scalar Higgs/Vishnu, Vector/Chakra, Spinor/Conch) (1)
2. Fundamental Particles (Panchajana/Five particle types, ChaturSana/Four right-handed particles) (2)
3. Interactions (Soma/strong, Madhu/Weak, Apa/Electromagnetic) (3)
4. Charges ( Vaishravana/Color, kAla/Weak, Yama/Electric) (3)
5. Composite Particles (Sura/Nucleons, Asura/Non-nucleons, Rakshasa/Vector and Pseudo-scalar mesons and Yaksa/Scalar and Pseudo-vector mesons) (4)
6. Concepts of Chirality, Helicity etc (4)

11. A top level summary of our understanding till now (14) Executive Summary of Rgveda Mandala 5 Hymn 74
Atri is the neutrino-decoupling event in the early Universe that allows the EM interactions to gain upper hand and evolve the Universe further. Vasus are atoms/mol…

A look back at our understanding till now..

Background As I travel through the Vedas and Upanishads, here is a look-back or  gist of my understanding, as it stands now. This is a summary of my understanding spread over many blog posts and few of my books.
It's a challenge always to have a starting point in describing Vedas and Upanishad, like starting in a limitless expanded space. I am starting at some point arbitrarily. Devas - Adityas, Rudras and Vasus Let's start this from the 'devas', which are more easily understood. Devas make our Universe.
There are 33 devas, of which there are 12 Adityas which are primitive (pre-molecular) matter forms and processes born out of creative energies, 11 Rudras which are 11 force-fields of Universe, then there are 8 vasus, which are eight states of atom/molecules based matter forms. 
The 12 adityas, the pre-molecular matter forms and processes are divided into 8 pre-molecular matter forms and 4 processes. The eight pre-molecular matter forms are

jyotiSa as vedAnga - Part 4

Background How are the days of the week named..? One reason is the order in which the planetary evolution and stabilization happens in the Solar System.  Another reason is the 'Hora system'.

In Vedic cultures sunrise was the start of the day. A day and night between two sun-rises were divided into 60 ghatis. Every 2.5 ghatis approximately were called a 'Hora'. Hence there were 24 'Horas' between two sun-rises approximately. The 'hour' should have come from the 'Hora'.

The 'horas' were named after the seven luminaries that affect Earth and they were repeated. Thus a 24 horas day and night had these seven luminary names repeating in day.

But the interesting point there is 'order' in which the names of luminaries were chosen for the horas. That order indicates that those days people had indeed known more than what we knew 100 years back.
Synodic period and Sidereal period Synodic period is the time that elapses between two success…

jyotiSa as vedAnga - Part 3

Background The definition of jyotiSaa in brhat samhita is a person who has multi-dimensional knowlege and makes use of this knowledge to do predictive modelling and make predictions out of them. Since it is not possible for one person to do it all, brhat Samhita calls for a team of jyotisaa to work together and make predictions for a King.

Simply put, jyotiSa is a science of predictive modelling with data from various information sources and using that model to make reasonable inferences about the future. Like it or not, it is just like economics (1).
This is all about information becoming knowledge to make reasonable inferences for future, which are approximations, but which keeps on becoming better and better. A person practising jyotiSa can neither claim to make accurate predictions nor can allow the instincts to over-run the inferences. I had also described the 'luminaries' that have pround impact on planet Earth and they are visible even to our naked eye (2). 
In this po…

Kapardin Rudra- Rg Veda Mandala 1 Hymn 114

Background Rudras are force-fields. There are eleven Rudras. Of this Kapardin Rudra is the 'braided' force-field.  Of all the particles, it is the 'quarks' that arise in a 'braided' form. Quarks always manifest in pairs or in triplets as 'condensates'. They always appear 'braided'.
Kapardin force-field is the field out of which Quark particles arise. The quark particles are the 'heroic abode' of all matter forms. All matter forms arise out of protons and electrons. Protons are made of quarks. Thus kapardin is said to be the abode of all matter forms.

The Rg Veda Mandala 1 Hymn 114 talks about the Kapardin Rudra, the braided force-field that causes the quarks and is the abode of the Universe. This sloka also has a reference for the puranic stories about varAha lifting the earth out of the waters with its 'tusk'.  Executive Summary of Rg veda Mandala 1 Hymn 114 Kapardin Rudra, the force-field that gives rise to braided quarks is t…
