Holy texts form an immortal and unfathomable store-house of wisdom. Depicted in them is not just raw information but tested knowledge. Conclusive proof is available that Vedas, the most ancient texts of India, possess knowledge of both the outer and the inner realms of existence. Needless to say that their authors, Vedic rishis, were scientists to the core. Vedic rishis had proved long ago, without even the slightest suspicion, that we are all a microcosm with the macrocosm within each one of us- “jo brahmaande soyee pinde”. Our Vedas vehemently proclaim that whatever is perceived in the cosmos can be similarly perceived at the individual level in our inner realms. The Quantum Theory propounded by a modern scientist Max Planck in 1900 also explicates this fact, making it easier for us to comprehend and assimilate.
The theory clearly elucidates how energy is absorbed and released by matter. According to it, energy is absorbed and released not continuously, rather discontinuously, in the form of small packets or quanta, where,
Quanta = h/2
(Energy) E= N h/2
This Quantum Theory of elementary processes unfolds the fact that space, time, and matter are intimately related. It also expounds all the usual processes of creation, propagation and annihilation. In addition, it was created to deal with microscopic particles, such as atoms and their electrons and photons. It has also proved successful in dealing with the subatomic particles such as quarks, gluons, and leptons.
However, in principle, quantum theory also applies to the macroscopic world, which we inhabit, as well as the large-scale astronomical entities such as galaxies and black holes. Logically, quantum theory applies to all things because everything is made from the same stuff. It is all woven from the same fabric. So, it is obvious that there is no natural division between the realm of a super-cluster of galaxies and the realm of quarks.
This way the microscopic entities can be described as contained within the macroscopic entities. Thus, the fields that contain individual quarks are themselves contained within broader fields, which contain individual atoms. Atomic fields, in turn, can be represented within molecular fields, which can further be represented within cellular fields. In this way, we can easily conceptualise human fields, collective species fields, planetary fields, star system fields, and galactic fields.
The particles within the entire universe are interacting with each other through their inward and outward energy waves. Thus, they become intertwined into one ensemble of energy waves, which determines the behaviour of the individual particles. There is an energy exchange between the particles of the universe. In addition, this energy can never be annihilated as per the Law of Conservation of Energy. According to this law - “Energy can neither be created, nor be destroyed, but can only be transformed from one form to another.” Hence, nothing comes from nothing, and nothing disappears without a trace.
Conclusively, the different variegated aspects in the merry-go-round of our cosmos are nothing but the energy expressions, where one energy expression can be expressed in terms of another energy expression. Also each energy expression is in terms of quanta only (E= N h/2 ).
For instance, if an object x1 can be put into an expression E1, where,
E1= N1 (h/2 )
And another object x2 can be expressed as E2, where,
E2= N2 (h/2 )
Then E1 can be expressed in terms of E2 as:
E1= E2 (N1/N2)
On the same ground, our human energy expression is the one embracing all possible energy expressions throughout the cosmos. For example, if
Ehuman = Nhuman (h/2 )
Ecosmos = E1+E2+E3+E4+.............E
E1= N1 (h/2 ), E2=N2 (h/2 ) and so on.
(N1+N2+N3+N4+..........N ) (h/2 )
Ehuman = [Nhuman/(N1+N2+ N3+N4+...................N ) ] Ecosmos
The above mathematical equation vividly corroborates the scriptural saying: “jo brahmaande soyee pinde”. This implies that whatsoever is there in the universe can be viewed in our own bodies too. The universe is macrocosm. Man, the microcosm, is the entire world in miniature.
However, the question arises how to achieve such a transcendental experience. This is feasible with the dawn of True Knowledge of the Divine (Brahm Gyan) in our life. This Knowledge is the Supreme science embracing all the sciences. The attainment of this knowledge is possible only by the grace of a living Perfect Master. It is through Him that one can perceive the whole cosmos within through the eye of spirit. The moment one acquires such a transcendental cosmic experience, he gets the support of all the administering natural forces in the cosmos. Therefore, being in tune with True Knowledge implies being one with the whole cosmos. It is essentially the microcosm perceiving the macrocosm within through the revelation of the supreme secret of inherent divinity.
Moreover, realising one's unity with the universe, one gains a better understanding and assimilation of one's true Self and surroundings, and in the process all the societal problems melt away. This is the time-tested strategy, profusely eulogised in Vedanta, for attaining peace both at the micro level- the microcosm and the macro level- the macrocosm. Balance and harmony can also be brought about through the same.
