History and Philosophy of Physics


The Ancient and Modern Knowledge

Authors: Dragan Turanyanin

This article rather bravely argues about a very strong parallel, if not even identity, between the so called three gunas i.e. rajas, tamas and sattwa (as accepted and explained through the teachings of almost all the ancient spiritual systems of India, both orthodox and unorthodox) and the three well known modern physical so called universal constants h, G and c, respectively. The idea, however, goes in contrast to the Bohm-Capra’s views of the parallelism. Also, a universal three-partition view of Nature is noticed and accepted. Few purely gnoseo-epistemological questions are raised on the same basis as well. The connection and parallel of gunas, i.e. the constants, with the ancient idea of both matter and space-time discontinuity on some very deep level is mentioned, too. The author is convinced that the main thesis of the existence of the huge, universal cultural cycles (or better say spiral) has been supported this way.
