Parallels in Physics and Philosophy

Author(s): Dr. Susmita Bhattacharya

Abstract: The internal quest to know about the essential and ultimate nature of the thing or the world perceived has been the favourite task of Indian philosophy. Since the reality lies behind the realms of the sense-perceptions and intellect, it can never be grasped completely through intellect. So the interpretation of reality communicated by words seems to become paradoxical and contradictory. Philosophically, it transcends even the most fundamental concepts of existence and non-existence and remains indefinable and indescribable. On the other hand, the twentieth century atomic physics began to tackle the fundamental questions reaching the transcendental realm never done before. The ultimate particle (wavecle) of physics seems to manifest a strange kind of physical reality between existence and non-existence. The deterministic physics with the entry of Indeterminacy Principle by Heisenberg in 1927 seems to speak the language of uncertainty, indeterminacy, probability and transcendence. Physics reaches its final conclusion that the ‘hidden variable’ responsible for this uncertainty is the subjective consciousness of the physicist as the quantum world is now no more pure objective. This is what our scriptures declare where the Knower and Known, subject and object not only become inseparable but indistinguishable.
