Inventions from the pure mind.
« on: October 31, 2008, 01:55:20 AM »
Dear sirs,

Some people are born with pure mind (suddha manas). These people turned to Self realisation. But what about
the great scienctists. They should also have suddha manas who invented many things for the world. Is not it?
Therefore as the world is created from the impure mind, the great inventions also happened from the pure mind.
So both mind is a veil from "Self:". Is it?

Dear Ramanaduli,
                      The Ekagrata(one pointedness) of Suddhamanas is selfwards in a saint,whereas it is directed outwards in a scientist.So Saint
is a subjective scientist,whereas scientist is an objective scientist.The character of exploration is the same in both but directions are different.

Dear Ramanaduli, As Dr. Raju said, the scientific inventions/
discoveries are the objective experiences, and perhaps may
fatten the egos of the scientists.  I am not sure.  But Dr. Einstein,
after the discovery of general theory of relativity, has said:

"These are all nothing.  I want to know the God's mind.  The rest
are all details!"   

He has also said once the following, which are inscribed in his
room in Syracuse University:

"I believe in God who is very subtle!"

it is a fact that alot of the great scientists like Einstein and others were and are mystics....

einstein said some tings that can just come from an "inspired" mind, the same with mozart, beethoven etc..

beethoven said: "what loftier mission is there to approach the godhead"

even the great nietzsche who said "god is dead" also said something like the true desire of the human is to melt into the universe....

Yes. Great artists have also been mystics, in a way. But some of them  were looking abnormal in their behavior. The power inside, which they know, were the outpourings of the arts and scientific discoveries.  Van Gogh was in love with a girl.  The girl complained that he has got ugly ears.  So he cut them off and sent them to the girl friend.  The same artist produced great paintings in later years.  Wagner, the great musician, was deaf.  Einstein started believing in god, after he discovered the General Theory of Relativity.  Kekule who discovered the hexagonal structure of benzene, which the base for all aromatic compounds, could not succeed in his goal.  One night, he prayed to God and had a dream where he found six serpents holding each others' tail through their mouths.  He got up from sleep and drew the hexagonal closed structure of benzene!
Alekhine the world champion chess player, was a mad man.  But
if he sits before a chess board, he would play wonderful games.
He was beaten only a few times in his hundreds of games.  (The
Chess Mind by Gerald Abrams).  Robert Fisher, the first non-American to become a world chess champion was also abnormal.  He always preferred a room without windows!   
He had said that even the ceiling fan that was revolving over his
head was a disturbance to him, while playing chess.
 
Bhagavan Ramana who had no intention of writing any poems either
for spreading bhakti or jnana, had one day, found that the words
'Karunaiyal ennai aanada nee..... coming repeatedly in his mind
and could not forget them till He completed the stroll on the Hill!
On return, He wrote the first poem of Sri Arunachala Padigam.  Then followed the other verses of Padigam, Ashtakam, Navamani Maalai
and Pancharatnam!

Arunachala Siva.
