Cosmic Evolution

This is the 3rd and final kind of evolution I want to address. This is supposedly the evolution of that deals with the evolution of the cosmos. Quite Simply the evolution of the universe i.e. the creation of time and space, the Big Bang according to science would explain that. Now, I have shown that our understanding of stellar evolution is born out of our observation of hundreds of billions of stars, but you guess that we do not have millions of universe to look at, so how in hell can we build an understanding of the evolution of the universe.

Well we first observe the universe and see what tracers of its origin we could find. It’s a little like looking at someone and trying to find tracers of his past by seeing traces of broken bones, scars and antibodies form past sickness for example. So what do we see about the universe that tells us about its past. Well first the universe is flat, as far as we can tell there is no curvature to space. There is no reason for this to be, in fact if matter was prevalent in the universe we would expect it to have a curvature proportional to the amongst of matter in it.

Second, everything in the universe is moving away from us, or everything in the universe is moving away from everything else. I’m making the distinction between the two because observation shows that just about every objet outside of our local group of galaxies is moving away from Earth. That would make Earth the center of the universe, except that this does not make any since from what we know about the Earth. First, it’s not the center of the solar system, and it not even at the center of our galaxies (not even close) which mean that having the whole universe rotating our us would violate the law of gravity. However, we can interpret the result of everything seeming to move away from Earth as everything is actually moving away from everything else i.e. there is an expansion of the universe.

Next we observe a uniform radiation field everywhere in the universe. It’s almost uniform in every direction and the small variation (less then 1 part in a 1000) can be associated with the presence of large volume of matter in the universe for example cluster of galaxies. This would indicate that the source of this radiation field is actually located behind the clusters. Anything that would be behind this source would be revealed by peculiar emission structure in this radiation field.

Also, we observe that there is a lot more photons in the universe than matter, about a billion time more. This would mean that at some point in the past part of the energy of the universe became matter but the very large majority of it remained in the form of energy. We also know that the globally the universe is homogeneous and isotropic as far we can see. That mean that there is no preferred place in the universe, all vantage point are roughly the same and that is no discontinuity in the fabric of the universe.

The Big Bang, with a cosmological inflation period explains all those observation. In fact the Big Bang is so good at explaining those observation that it predicted the existence of the uniform radiation field, the so-called cosmological microwave background. The theory is also explaining the primordial abundance of light element (Helium, lithium and Deuterium). Of course we cannot observe the Big Bang, it happened at least 13.7 Billion years ago and lies beyond the surface of last diffusion, i.e. origin of the cosmological microwave background which is the maximum distance from which we can receive photo that have not been scattered into losing all the information from source. However, the Big Bang is at the moment the only theory that manages to explain and predict more fact. Sure it as flaws, but it is supported by observations and it actually explains a lot of how things occurred in the early universe to build what we observe now.

So here you have it, 3 evolution that do not exist that we have no proof of and no observation in support of according to at least one young earth creationist. I’ve not addressed the Darwinian evolution they seem to hate so much, but if what they tell you about 3 of the 6 kind of evolution they claim exist are false. Shouldn’t you wonder about there honesty toward the fifth one: Darwinian evolution.

COMPREHENSIVE VIEW OF SCIENCE OF RELIGION (THEOLOGY)

I have written following two papers which may lead to the realization for a higher theory of everything:

(i) Gravitation Force is the Ultimate Creator,
(1st Int. Conf. on Revival of Traditional Yoga, Lonavla Yoga Institute, Lonavla, January, 2006)
(ii) In Scientific Terminology, Source of Gravitational Wave is God
(2nd World Congress on Vedic Science, BHU, Varanasi, Feb 2007)
I have presented these two papers at the two different International Conferences. I am now submitting some views for being considered for Unified Field Theory

From Scriptures: (Prem Patra by His Holiness Huzur Maharaj)
The Current which manifested in the beginning of the creation is the Current of Sabda (Sound) and of Chaitanya (Consciousness). From whom that Current issued forth is known as Soami (Supreme Being). This Current, by turning back can merge again in the Holy Feet of Supreme Being. The entire creation manifested from this current and is sustained with its energy and when the Current of the Holy Feet is withdrawn, the creation ceases to exist.This Current of the Holy Feet is the Reservoir of all energy, tastes and pleasures, knowledge, skill, shapes, forces and light etc. etc. and of the entire creation, is also the Creator of all of them.

From Science:
Gravitation Force is the cause of manifestation of the creation (birth of planets, stars), its sustenance and when it is withdrawn towards centre or source the entire creation ceases to exist. Photons have originated from gravitons. In black holes photons merge into gravitons. In Black Holes, Gravitational Force is so high that it does not allow even light to escape. What does it mean then? It simply means that the gravitational force at black-holes attracts light towards it with much greater velocity than the speed of light. In fact, all forces including electromagnetic force, material force (strong and weak nuclear force) all merge into gravitational force in black-holes and becomes one force there and when the creational process starts again from a Black-Hole all the forces appear (manifest) again and descends downwards to create billions of stars, planets, satellite, asteroids and various life forms.

Hence it can be assumed that the Current of Chaitanya (Consciousness) and Gravitational Wave are the two names of the same Supreme Essence (Seed) which has brought forth the entire creation.

All cosmological researches should be conducted keeping in view of the following philosophical facts:
It has been stated in Bible (John I-1) “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God,”
Mohammedans hold that God uttered ‘Kun’ (i.e. ‘Came into being’) and the creation came into being (Holy Quran, Sur. Bakr (II.117).
In Chhandogya Upanishad it is written “Tadaikshat bahu syam prajayeyeti” (VI-2-iii) i.e. “It thought (desired) Would that I were many! Let me procreate myself!” The Aitareya Upanishad says,”Sa ikshat ‘lokannusrija’ iti (I-1-i) i.e. “He bethought himself (desired) – ‘Let me create worlds’, etc. etc.
It is written in Chapter VII of Srimad Bhagavadgita : Sri Bhagwan said, “Arjun, now listen how with the mind attached to Me and practicing Yoga with absolute dependence on Me, you will know Me in entirety and without any shadow of doubt” (1). I shall unfold to you in its entirety this wisdom alongwith the Knowledge of the qualified aspect of God, having known which nothing else remains yet to be known in this world (2). Earth, water, fire, air, ether, mind, reason and also ego; these constitute My nature eightfold divided. This indeed is My lower (material) nature : the other than this, by which the whole universe is sustained, know it to be My higher nature in the form of Jiva, O Arjuna. (4-5). Arjuna, know that all beings have evolved from this twofold Prakriti, and that I am the source of the entire creation, and into Me again it disappears.(6)
The Radhasoami Religion also tells that, the ‘Word’ mentioned above is in fact Current of Sound or Current of Consciousness or Prime Current of Spirituality which was issued forth from its Source, or Creator or God. This Current has later on produced light and other forces. The scientists are discussing these days about dark energy which constitute about 96% of the entire universe which is not known to us. Only 4% part of the universe is known to us by all scientific means. In fact this 96% invisible portion of the universe is the vast expanse of spirituality which can be designated as field of gravitational waves in scientific terms. Visible portion of the universe (4%) consists of consciousness (gravitational force), mental force (electromagnetic waves) and material force (strong and weak nuclear force).
Body = Nuclear Force (weak as well as strong)
Mind = Electromagnetic Force.
Consciousness = Gravitation Force.
According to Radhasoami Religion the whole Universe can be sub-divided into three grand divisions viz.
1. Region of Pure Spirituality
2. Region of Subtle Maya
3. Region of Gross Maya
Nuclear forces dominate Region of Gross Maya (Gross Material Region), Electro-magnetic forces dominate Region of Subtle Maya (Subtle Material Region) and Gravitational Force dominates Pure Spiritual Region.
This is the only Truth which can be verified scientifically and can be termed as ‘higher theory for everything’. This also supports the statement of Sir Sahabji Maharaj that ‘the goal of science – Truth; the goal of philosophy – Ultimate Reality; and the goal of religion – God’ are the three names of same supreme essence.
Many things are common between Current of Consciousness and Gravitational Wave.
1. Current of consciousness can not be seen by any means and gravitational wave can also not be seen.
2. Current of consciousness is the weakest force on earth. Its strength goes on increasing on higher regions. Gravitational force is also very weak on earth and strong on Sun and even more stronger on black holes.
3 Tendency of both current of consciousness and gravitational waves are towards their source or centre.
4. Current of consciousness and gravitational force are both regarded as the creater of all the celestial and terrestrial bodies of the whole universe. They are also sustainer of these and when they turn back towards their source or centre the whole universe will collapse.
Hence it can be assumed that the source of current of consciousness and gravitational wave is the same i.e. God or ultimate creator.
This theory is based on scientific deduction. In scientific terms it can be said that the ‘gravitons’ are the elementaryparticle which was issued forth in the beginning of the creation accompanying with sound ‘Radha’
Many views on the Origin of Universe are available. Most popular view is that universe was born with a big-bang from a highly dense energy point. But I have some different view on it. I think the universe was not born from a concentrated point or ball like structure but it has been evolved from an infinite vast expanse of field of gravity. Philosophically or religiously we may call it field of consciousness or spirituality.
A great flow of current of gravitation force descended down from this source and has created many regions of pure gravitation force below it. This was the creation for quite some time in the first phase of the creational process. In the second phase, with a Big-Bang, when the current of gravitation force further descended down then electromagnetic forces and matter (weak and strong nuclear forces)manifested and the entire universe of the second phase was completed with the admixture of all the forces viz., gravitation force, electromagnetic forces, and matter (weak and strong nuclear forces. The completion of the whole cosmos in two phases was also hinted in one of the speeches of Prof. J.V.Narlikar some years back. When the process of creation of universe reverts back the matter merges into electromagnetic force and then finally electromagnetic forces merge into gravitation force and nothing remains except field of gravity. The cycle of universe completes like this.



=====================================
Yoga (Application) which was based on the control of the body physically and implied that a perfect control over the body and the senses led to knowledge of the ultimate reality. A detailed anatomical knowledge of the human body was necessary to the advancement of yoga and therefore those practising yoga had to keep in touch with medical knowledge. (Romila Thapar, A History of India, volume one).
