Stubbornly Persistent Illusion: Part 3



In previous article we saw our action reaction with the physical reality and our capability or range of seeing this physical reality. In this article we will see how our observation affect the reality to physical system with a world famous thought experiment in quantum physics and how does it affect the reality.
So get back to ride without wasting our entropy (thing which cause illusionistic time).

We think the world we see around is composed of matter,for better understanding, stuff of the world is matterstuff. And this is true, as far as physical reality is concerned, may be uncertain but this is ultimate thing. The world we actually know is the world that takes place in our mind. And so this world is not made of matterstuff but mindstuff.

Everything we perceive, feel, imagine, is a form that consciousness has taken on. Everything, as far as world is concerned, is structured in consciousness. What about the reality of space and time? (Crucial thing that we must consider). Reality of space and time seems undeniable. They appear to be fundamental dimensions of physical world, entirely independent of my or your consciousness. This is because we can not see world in any other way. Our mind is constituted that it is forced to construct the experience within the framework of space and time. However space and time are not fundamental dimensions of underlying reality but consciousness.

Ok, so it may seems astonishing claim but physics now lends weight to this extraordinary idea. Before making our way to time theory and relativity, lets see a world famous, feline Paradox thaught experiment by Nobel prize winning physicist Erwin Schrödinger. Thauhgt experiment known as “Schrödinger cat experiment”. This thaught experiment reveales the peculiar rules of quantum theory. For those who are unaware of Quantum physics, its basically the study of physics of particles at very deep scale (i.e. at Substomic level) where thing behaves weird comparing with general physics.

In experiment, you place a cat in box with a tiny bit of radio active substance(alfa). When the radioactive substance decays, Geiger counter detects it and triggers the hammer to release the poison that kills the cat. The decay of radioactive substance is governed by quantum mechanics and is a random process with no way to predict when it will happen. Until the box is opened, the observer doesn’t know whether the cat is alive or dead. There is no conscious observer present(everything is in a sealed box). So it has two possibilities.

The cat’s fate is intrinsically tied to whether or not the atom has decayed and the cat would be “living or dead…in equal parts” until it is observed. In simple words, a state of Cat is completely unknown until the box was opened and therefore, the cat is considered to be both ‘alive and dead’ at the SAME time until it is observed. Immediately when observer looking at cat, the Superposition of the cat- which was in both states- would collapse into one possibility of knowledge that ‘the cat is alive’ or ‘the cat is dead’, but not both. This is the idea of wave function of particles describes all of the possible states until it observed.
“In any physical system, without observation, you cannot say what something is doing”
This is complete new level of weirdness of quantum realm.

It is your observation that causes the collapse of wave function and results into one final possible outcome. When you are not observing you are not sure about the possibility that reality is offering.

If you have this Schrödinger’s emoticon poster on the wall of your bedroom depicting both the expressions, sad and smile, at same time. Its upto your observation, what wave function you are going to see! Science of the universe is eternal, much complicated and weird for the most of the time. Till now we saw the reality as reconstruction of world appears in our mind. From now onwards we will drive through the fundamental aspects of the world in terms of physics! It has been a wonderful journey so far and will be more fascinating from now on. Until then, take rest on the station and look for this eternity, the nature has offering!

Dussehra (victory of good over evil)



Dussehra Is celebrated to represent victory of good over evil means prabhu Rama over Ravana in famous hindu epic Ramayan. Also it means the end of durga puja & Ramlila. In Ramayan, Ravana kidnaps god Rama’s wife Sita, as god Rama & Laxman cuted of the nose of ravna’s sister surpanakha so to claim vengeance on them Ravana kidnapped sita. To get back maa sita prabhu Rama & Laxman faught battel against Ravana with the help of hanuman, subriv & other vanar sena. In this battel Rawan’s brother Bhibishan also helped him against Ravan . at the end of prabhu Ram wins the battel and rescues sita. Thereafter this victory is celebrated by burning the statue of Ravan, kumbhakarn, his son meghnath. Dasehra is a climax of long day celebration of Navratri.

           The nine days of Navratri is the time to reflect on oneself, observe silence & practice fasting. Fasting cleanses the body of toxins and silence purifies speech & mind. what does dasehra means das means ten and hara means take away. Which came after Navratri means nine nights if darkness.  On each day of Navratri we pray to that form of goddess durga to take away that darkness of ignorance within us and after that on tenth day on the occasion of dasehra we burn all the evil, bad things, thoughts, bad habbits inside us in that fire in the form of Ravna as evil inside us.

Ravan is not the demon or evil outside you it is inside you. In the battel of Ram and Ravana, god ram had been invoked durga to help him win the battel against Ravan, And he won. We also should invoked god durga to help us in gaining back our sita. Now what is sita?  It is awareness inside is which has been traped in maya surround us. To make our soul clean and pure we have to burn the evil in the fire by wining the battel against it which lies inside us that’s what dasehra symbolize.

It is a supreme festival of Hindu culture with true meaning. It also symbolize the feminism as the battel is to gain maa Sita again back as Ravan has kidnaped her. whenever  man crosses his limit and try to hurt marayda of stree. She will become god durga and make him to death. When the Rama wins then there is only light. So choice is ours. Either we become Ravana & get entrapped in the worldly pleasure or become Rama (A spiritual being)

Know what you have celebrated these 9 days!



The Celebration of Good over Evil

Navaratri is the opportunity for removal of vanity and evil influences and learning to achieve the ultimate truth and meaning of life through spiritual means.

Navaratri (Nava-nine; Ratri-nights) is usually celebrated, as its name suggests, within a span of 9 nights and 10 days. It falls on the Ashvin month according to the Hindu calendar. It celebrates the victory of good over evil; the defeat of negative energies by the righteous or morally upright. The rituals performed during Navaratri is dedicated to Devi Ma, the divine feminine. Each night is dedicated to the worship of nine personalities (Navadurga) and express gratitude to the Mother Divine. Devi is considered as the omnipresent cosmic energy. Devotees often fast, meditate, pray and perform certain rituals.

The rituals are followed by external festivities such as cultural functions and fairs. Cultural functions include Garba/ Dandiya nights and other social functions whereas rituals include Ghatasthapana and other spiritual activities. Women gather up in various societies and perform their rituals together.

But things have changed amidst this Pandemic. People are avoiding social gatherings. They are visiting temples with their masks on and abiding by the guidelines of the Government by following the social distancing norms. Most of the relatives are greeting each other via online platforms and celebrating this auspicious occasion by face-timing each other.

According to sources, many cities (like Indore, Raipur, etc.) have cancelled Garba nights, thus, leaving the hearts of many youngsters broken. Each State Government has taken precautions not to let more than 100 people assemble anywhere.

Jagaran reports that Prayagraj is celebrating Shardiya Navaratra in a unique manner. Famous singers across the city are preparing for devotional songs and performing them via online platforms so that people can get access to the divine celebration by staying at home as well.

Navaratri’s focus is to show reverence to the creation which is a gift of Devi Ma and it is rightly done if we start respecting our Mother Earth in the right terms.

Why do we have blood types?



Blood is bodily fluid that circulates through body and deliver essential nutrients and oxygen to every cell of our body.

For thousands of years nobody really understood blood. A greek doctor from 200 BC believed that blood was created from food and liver, this thought lived nearly 1500 years. It was early 17th century when a British ‘Dr. William Harvey’ discovered that blood circulated circulated through body. This experiment spawned the age of blood transfusion. In 1665 an english physician successfully kept one dog alive by transfusing blood of another dog into his body. Later after two years doctors experimented transfusing animals blood into human body in which the human patient died due to blood clotting.

It wasn’t until 1900s when ‘Dr. Karl Landsteiner’ understood that animals even humans have different blood. He later researched on blood and developed a system to categorize blood type known as A-B-O blood group system. Dr. Landsteiner traced transfusion complication like death and blood clot is caused by two things Antigens and Antibodies. Antigen is anything that triggers our immune system to respond. Usually viruses and Bacteria fall in this category, usually our immune system recognize these invaders and deploy antibodies to destroy them. Antibodies are proteins produced by our immune system that can recognize, investigate and if needed can destroy Antigens.But our own body also produce some Antigens called Self-Antigens which our immune system leave them alone. The whole A-B-O group system  is based upon these sugar based Self-Antigens and corresponding protein based antibodies. 

Depending upon the presence and absence of these Antigens and Antibodies our blood is divided into four types. Type A blood has A-antigen on blood and B-antibody in plasma. Type B blood has B-antigen on blood and A-antibody in plasma. Type AB has both A-antigen and B-antigen with no Antibodies in plasma. Type O has both A-antibody and B-antibody with no Antigens on blood. 

The positives and the negatives after our blood type is given by detecting the presence or absence of Rh protein based Antigen. Presence of Rh protein gives positive sign after blood type while absence gives negative sign after blood type. 

Blood is foremost the most important fluid in our body. By understanding our blood we can ensure tranfusing right blood type to the needy ones.
