extraordinary hindu ideas about science and the universe never get the credit they deserve. much like panini's grammar and the invention of the calculus.

Hi Rajeev,

This article was sent to me by a friend. Seems to reflect the Maya and Moksha concepts of Hinduism. Thought you will find it interesting.



Big brain theory: Have cosmologists lost theirs?

It could be the weirdest and most embarrassing prediction in the history of cosmology, if not science.

If true, it would mean that you yourself reading this article are more likely to be some momentary fluctuation in a field of matter and energy out in space than a person with a real past born through billions of years of evolution in an orderly star-spangled cosmos. Your memories and the world you think you see around you are illusions.
