Hyperspace, The 'n'th dimension, and Vedanta

I've recently read the book Hyperspace by Dr Michio Kaku.. Very interesting. Here are some observations..

According to this book the universe has multi dimensions (10 according to hyperspace theory). Just as a square living in a two dimensional paper cannot visualize or think about a three dimensional world, we human beings may not be able to visualze multi dimensions, though it can be represented mathematically.

After reading that, I just related it with Yoga Vasishta, an ancient Indian Spiritual Text which describes various levels of conciousness and various dimensions of the universe. According to Kaku, the radius of next dimension is much smaller than the planck's constant, so that it is almost impossible to find it.

This resembled me the 'Sukshma loka' (subtle world) in Yoga Vasishta, where the conciousness can enter.

Indian Vedanta and culture is so deep and vast, and the ancient Rishis experimented various possiblities of human conciousness through techniques like meditation, and explored the universe in various ways. Yoga Vasishta even discusses techniques like Time Travel (Akshagamana) - and explains how human conciousness and mind can be fine tuned to attain such realms.

According to Vedanta, the whole nature (observing phenomena) is part of the self (observer), and there is no duality between the two (Advaita). According to Kaku, the String theory describes that the whole matter is nothing much vibration of energy.

Science knows that the base or substratum of matter is energy. Vendanta goes further - it explains the whole matter as vibration in the level of energy (much before Einstien), and continues further, to explain that the substratum or base of whole energy is conciousness (Prajna).

And Vedanta concludes that the Prajna is the divine (Prajnanam Brahma), and all beings are just the manifestation of the same conciousness (Aham Brahmasmi, That-tvam Asi).

And, Vedanta explains that the maximum possibility of Human life is to realize this conciousness- to be one with it. This can be experienced by anyone, by controlling his mind, like various masters at various ages did (Krishna, Buddha, Nabi, Jesus, Guru Gobind etc)

May be science is coming closer to reality.. Who knows.

  2. "the String theory describes that the whole matter is nothing much vibration of energy. "

    Did you mean nothing 'but'?

Top 7 Coding Standards & Guideline Documents For C#/.NET Developers

Some time back, I collated a list of 7 Must Read, Free EBooks for .NET Developers, and a lot of people found it useful. So, I thought about putting together a list of Coding Standard guidelines/checklists for .NET /C# developers as well.As you may already know, it is easy to come up with a document - the key is in implementing these standards in your organization, through methods like internal trainings, Peer Reviews, Check in policies, Automated code review tools etc. You can have a look at FxCop and/or StyleCop for automating the review process to some extent, and can customize the rules based on your requirements.Anyway, here is a list of some good Coding Standard Documents. They are useful not just from a review perspective - going through these documents can definitely help you and me to iron out few hidden glitches we might have in the programming portion of our brain. So, here we go, the listing is not in any specific order.1 – IDesign C# Coding StandardsIDesign C# coding stand…

Creating a quick Todo listing app on Windows using IIS7, Node.js and Mongodb

As I mentioned in my last post, more and more organizations are leaning towards Web Oriented Architecture (WOA) which are highly scalable. If you were exploring cool, scalable options to build highly performing web applications, you know what Node.js is for.After following the recent post from Scott Hanselman, I was up and running quickly with Node.js. In this post, I’ll explain step by step how I’ve setup Node.js and Mongodb to create a simple Todo listing application.Setting up Node.jsThis is what I’ve done.1 – Goto http://nodejs.org/, scroll down and download node.exe for Windows, and place it in your c:\node folder2 – Goto IIS Node project in Git at https://github.com/tjanczuk/iisnode, download the correct ‘retail’ link of IIS Node zip file (I downloaded the already built retail package, otherwise you can download and build from the source).3 – Extract the zip file some where, and run the install.bat or install_iisexpress.bat depending on your IIS Version. If you don’t have IIS in…

MVVM - Binding Multiple Radio Buttons To a single Enum Property in WPF

I had a property in my View Model, of an Enum type, and wanted to bind multiple radio buttons to this.

Firstly, I wrote a simple Enum to Bool converter, like this.

public class EnumToBoolConverter : IValueConverter { #region IValueConverter Members public object Convert(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, System.Globalization.CultureInfo culture) { if (parameter.Equals(value)) return true; else return false; } public object ConvertBack(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, System.Globalization.CultureInfo culture) { return parameter; } #endregion }

And my enumeration is like

public enum CompanyTypes { Type1Comp, Type2Comp, Type3Comp } Now, in my XAML, I provided the enumeration as the ConverterParameter, of the Converter we wrote earlier, like
