Born Free, Bound By Borders

As a kid in the school I had read about this wonderful bird called ‘Arctic Tern’. The life of this bird fascinated me a lot because it is the only species which covers earth from one pole to other, and that too every year!

Non Locality = Universal Consciousness?

One of the greatest mysteries of quantum mechanics is non-locality. Non locality is if you take two quantum particles that were twins and separate them billions of miles apart, and then do something to one particle here, the other particle billions of light years away will immediately come to know about what you did to that one particle here!! This quantum property has...

Vedic Science vs Modern Science

Just had a passing thought while thinking about the reason as to why modern science is finding it difficult to come to terms with the finest details of universe like consciousness, awareness, particle non-locality, quantum teleportation, etc. The reason I think is, Modern science tries to formulate everything into the way our human brains can understand.
