Science & Technology.

 

What  is science  and technology? 

 

Science and technology is identifying the essential element, which causes a particular effect and if one  is able to reproduce the same effect repeatedly, then that is a technology. 

 

To illustrate the point with an example, let us presume there is a field with a lot of salt water where we are unable to grow anything. Instead of giving it up one can find out the plants that grow in salt  water and plant them.  

 

A step further would be to find     out what genes in a plant allow it   to survive in salt water. A scientist in Chennai, Dr. Swaminathan has done such a research and has     been awarded a prize for this discovery.

 

He found out the essential element, the gene, which makes the mangrove plants grow in salt water. He located this gene, which allows the plant to grow in salt water and inserted it into rice. So, he developed a new kind of rice, which can grow in salt water. Hence many areas full of salt water, which were earlier not available for cultivation, are  now cultivating rice. 

 

Mutant Genes.

 

Over a period of time every process  in the biological field evolves a different evolutionary process,  which is called a ‘mutant’. A mutant is a gene, which normally does not exist, but suddenly becomes a very dominant force in the organism. Let us say specie ‘x’ with a small eye, suddenly develops a more open   eye because of mutation.

 

If this mutation is useful and the animal is able to see better than  before then automatically the new species will become dominant and the previous species will die out.   But, if the eye opens up too much and the eyesight reduces due to too much exposure to the atmosphere, then the new species may also  die out.  

 

The environment is always changing, so every animal, every system    in nature is constantly evolving different processes to survive in the environment and to deal with the situation  in the best way possible. 

 

 Production of  Mutants.

 

Q: How  are these  mutants produced? 

 

Guruji: A mutant takes place when some cosmic rays, which are very  powerful nuclear energies, come and hit the earth. This effects the biological genes of some species. If these genes are able to survive the impact, then a new species is produced. This is how a mutant is created. 

 

Normally, cosmic rays hit the earth only once in a while and it is very   rare that a mutant evolves. So how can one increase the number of mutants, so that the evolutionary process  can accelerate? 

In BARC (Babha Atomic Research Center) some seeds were exposed to radiation. By bombarding them with nuclear energy the seeds mutated and the rate of mutation, which is normally 1 in a  million, was shifted to 1 or 2 mutations in a hundred. 

 

When these seeds were sown they  found that a jute plant, which is normally 3 feet tall, grew to a 20    feet tall tree. Now they could create fantastic fibres, which was never  possible before.

 

Spiritual Potency.

 

Spirituality has existed in India for thousands of years, but its true potency had not evolved. How to take out and infuse that real element so that the person will be-come awakened was not available.

 

Nobody thinks that by ‘Doing Nothing,’ things work. Every-body thinks that by doing some-thing  things work.

 

So, it is a miracle that we have found out that nothing is to be  done, which is the real element of Spirituality. Samadhi is a state of  ‘Doing Nothing’.

 

Samadhi & Quantum Leaps in Mankind’s Evolution. 

 

Everybody in the world is talking about doing sadhana. They do not know about Non-Doing (Samadhi). It is only Non-doing, which awakens the person to his infinite potentials. Any doing offers a resistance to the natural flow. Maximum energy moves through the point of least resistance resulting in a quantum jump.

 

Samadhi is a state of total non-resistance. Deeper levels of  Samadhi allows humans to mutate to greater human beings through expansion of consciousness.. 

 

Samadhi is a quantum mechanical virtual  ground for all possibilities.
