Brhadaranyaka Upanisad

January 16, 2007 at 5:49 pm Leave a comment

Begins with a description of a horse, the horse is the earth and the earth’s forms are broken into parts, the sun is a cup rising to it’s mouth. Clearly the day was born after the horse, for by the logic of the horse as stationary, the day naturally fills the function of the horse’s cup. What’s interesting about this? The Upanisads represent a religious text written down after years of culmination, and its logic closely mirrors the turns of logic required for calculus or relativistic physics. My point isn’t to link mysticism to science, but rather to make the theory that perhaps the Upanisads was a fully formed and well versed theory of everything explaing the universe with similar thoughts, but lacking modern day data.
