Abstraction of knowledge


Science means purified knowledge. But what about the process that converts the raw knowledge into purified form and who is the authority to claim the distinction of raw and pure. It is we that try to align the knowledge in our dimension. This is our projection. And projections are virtual. So there is abstraction. This is same as to claim an object’s length by its shadow. Whole day the length of shadow is varying. We need to know the position of sun for actual length. Your sun is in you. We need to acknowledge it. I was puzzled and perhaps all will be, when they will think about the Lao tzu statement that knowledge in inexpressible through words. It can only be felt in silence. First thing, here, Lao Tzu is talking about the knowledge we already posses. It is to be remembered only. It cannot be categorized in raw and pure because this knowledge is in the centre of your sun. It has no projection.
When we see a rose. We can feel its beauty. But the same beauty cannot be felt by the description of the beauty of rose. You can have the best description but the synchronization of your inner being with the beauty is not at all possible. No mathematical formulation can quantify the ecstasy and joy of the two lovers. Science is beyond it. Whenever you are happy whole world seems beautiful and when you are unhappy, whole world becomes ugly. This is proof of the fact that everything is your projection. If it is your projection then you have always a distinction what is beautiful and what is ugly. Judging something beautiful still approves that something is ugly. So in GITA Krishna has announced to be equal in happiness and unhappiness. This simply reflects to be meditated to your inner consciousness, your inner sun. How can be a projection of an object can be made if the object is in the centre of the sun? Then what ever you view will be bliss. No one can categorize it. It will have no opposites. This is what our scripture say YOGA (samatvam yogam uchayte). But here also word ‘YOGA’ is an abstraction of the feeling, the bliss.

Words have indeterminate range of meaning if not studied from a proper prospective.Hence Lao Tzu was correct.Very well written projection of thoughts.I like the article content and presentation style.Good work.Keep going man...
