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.
