About Me

I am an electronics engineer by profession, with a engg degree from I.I.T. Kharagpur, India and an M.S. from Univ of Notre Dame, Indiana, US. I have been working on the design of silicon chips - microprocessors, networking, video etc for 24 years, in US and in Bangalore India, having worked for Intel, Sun Microsystems, Sharp Micro and so on

I have had a keen interest in fundamental sciences - physics and bio sciences, as well as in ancient wisdom and spirituality - the Vedas from India, Bible, and many other knowledge sources. Have been keenly following "Consciousness Studies and seminars" at National Institute of Advanced Studies here in Bangalore.

The concept of a "subtle Body" exists widely in Indian literature as well as in the Bible. I believe in order to find answers to a range of universal experiences humans undergo, scientists and even common folk have to keep their minds open and explore the truth, not be fanatical either about science or about religion. I am very excited and encouraged by the research into the Abstract areas of life, that Consciousness studies and other sciences seem to be pursuing in this century particularly.

TAPAS DATTA suggests that the axion-body is the subtle body often referred to by the mystics.

In [email protected], "Robert Karl Stonjek" quote: "..The studies (both analytical and empirical) conclude that humans are predisposed to believe in gods and an afterlife, and that both theology and atheism are reasoned responses to what is a basic impulse of the human mind."Humans 'predisposed' to believe in gods and the afterlife May 16th, 2011 in Other Sciences / Social Sciences

Every one has one's own notions of After-life. Prof. Stephen Hawking has his version also which by his own admission is a "fairy stroy".

The "predisposition" "toward after-life" is not merely due to the wiring in the brain, though it is an essential part. It is a question of "ontic state". The decaying brain of ordinary matter seems to recognize (resonate to) a more durable "mirror" brain. However, much the same way as there is no live brain without a body, there can be no live "mirror brain" without a live "mirror body". Since the mirror counterparts are not detectable in and by ordinary EM fields, they must be made of non-electric particles. Taking all "masses" into consideration, theoretical axion-like particles seem to be reasonable candidates here. The after-life becomes then a question of relative durability of the 'dark" particles apropos of the 'light' particles. Best regards Philip Benjamin

TAPAS DATTA identifies the axion-body with the subtle body often spoken of by the mystics.

Hi, Tapas:
You are most welcome to discuss these matters. Are you suggesting that the "subtle body" you have in mind is most probably the axion-body described here? Then how is it subtle, other than the fact that it is "non-electric" and therefore not visible?

Best regards
