Introductory note for Kindle eBook Origin of Universe

This book aims to solve the fundamental issues of latest research in cosmology, which combines Big Bang theory with quantum physics. The present enquiry boils down to the question about the origin of matter and energy that constitute the physical world. The treatment of this book is from the secular perspective of philosophy of science, without involving the religious notions of God and creation. The first, second and third chapters would present the paradigms called classical physics and modern physics including the various branches of theoretical physics as well as cosmology. The latest mathematical models proposing the existence of standard model particles, quantum gravity, strings, membranes, multiverse, dark matter and dark energy are critically explained. The fourth and fifth chapters contain the innovative epistemology (theory of knowledge) of such doctrines.

The book argues that there are serious drawbacks in the proposals of scientific cosmology – mainly pluralism and underlying scientific realism. So the search for the most elementary form of matter is elusive. The experimental evidence is lacking, or at least ambiguous, in the case of the said mathematical models. Moreover, the biological world abounds in nonphysical aspects of creativity and purpose, which are outside the scope of science. In a summary way, we can say that the main problems remain unanswered, in spite of spending colossal amount of money and effort for cosmological research. Scientists have reached the dead end. The silver lining in this cloud comes from the principles of System Philosophy of Science being developed in the fifth chapter of this book.

The answer to the basic cosmological question as given in this book can be indicated concisely as following: It is asserted that the theories like Big Bang, inflation, multiverse, etc, are meant only for scientific way of interpreting the history of physical world. The past universe (parental universe) is a system of dark matter and dark energy, which are denoted by DM and DE respectively. This system has existence since it is represented by the X-Y model of coordinate geometry. Then Big Bang is at the origin (x = 0, y = 0) of the system model. Big Bang is similar to the stage of seed, while past universe (DM-DE system) serves as the field. This analogy helps us to answer the question as to what existed before the big bang. The system model effectively removes the problem of pluralism and scientific realism.

The DM-DE system or matter-energy system is the physical reduction of matter-consciousness system of inanimate world. This system model explains the production of the hierarchical levels of subatomic objects and visible substances.
The sixth chapter offers the final solution of cosmological puzzles mainly related to space, time, matter and multiverse. The idea of consciousness in Nature removes the conundrum of intelligent designer. FINALLY, the seventh chapter indicates concisely the topics, appearing in the forthcoming books, such as life, evolution, mind, social systems and ultimate reality.

System Philosophy is an integrative thought about the universe as a system of matter and consciousness, where these constituents are in dialectical and productive relation. It effectively shows that things exist by the union of opposites. This is the central theme of Origin of Universe and also the companion volumes Life and Mind and Discovery of Reality

The present book is written in a pedagogic style, by explaining all concepts in a basic manner making use of suitable Tables and Diagrams. So the book would serve as text as well as reference for all inquisitive readers.

Introductory note for Kindle eBook Life and Mind

As is well known, philosophy of science normally pertains to the area of physical sciences. But some philosophers and thinkers have attempted to extend the philosophical enquiry into the realm of biological sciences also; but are caught in the web of controversies. The most important question is about the origin of life and mind with regard to the living beings upon earth. Does the religious view about soul and God have any relevance in this context? Is it justified to say scientifically that the evolution of inanimate molecules caused the emergence of life and mind?
In this situation, we must admit that philosophy of biological science is an unchartered area. The major purpose of present book Life and Mind is to investigate the above issues and to suggest an innovative thesis. It is the second book in the series of three books; the companion books are Origin of Universe and Discovery of Reality.

System Philosophy is defined here as an integrative thought about the universe as a system of matter and consciousness, where these constituents are in dialectical and productive relation. It effectively shows that things exist by the union of opposites. This philosophical path is to be distinguished from the empirical notion called systems philosophy or systems view, popularized in the writings of a group of thinkers including mainly David Bohm, Fritjof Capra and Ervin Laszlo. The main innovative ideas of this book are indicated below.

Firstly, the puzzle of life is explained in terms of different worldviews. The central dogma of molecular biology and genetics is based on machine-algorithm model. Then the epistemological criticism of computer model of life is presented systematically using original arguments. Treating genetic code (information) as non-physical is the vital step to reach the System Philosophy of Life. Here the key idea is that Life is a system formed by the opposite entities called macromolecule (mainly DNA) and information. The new System Model of Life synthesizes the religious and materialist ways of describing the origin of life upon earth. It is the first time that a mathematical method (the X-Y diagram of analytical geometry) is adapted to explain philosophical aspects of life.

System Philosophy of Biological Evolution rejects the materialist approach of Charles Darwin, by holding that evolution is a process involving the combination of matter and consciousness. Further we can show that Darwin’s theory is a physical reduction of the system model being proposed here. It would equip us to tackle the problem of missing links in an ingenious way.

Neuroscientists do not recognize the nonphysical aspects of mind like creativity, purpose and freedom. It is established here that human being is a system, which has three levels of organizations, namely inanimate body, biological body and mind. Consequently, the age-old problem of mind-body dualism is solved through the system model of mind. Also the self-consciousness of human being is explained.

The religious view about soul and God was resorted traditionally to explain the origin of life and mind. It is challenged here. The key idea of system philosophy of religion is that religion exists as a social system and that the existence of God is an inference confirmed by the mystical experiences of a worshipper. Finally, the synthesis of science and religion is achieved because these are two kinds of knowledge formed by two separate faculties – scientific mind and mystic mind respectively — of human mind. In the layered view of universe, the Ultimate Reality or paramporul is an X-Y coordinate system of body and consciousness. It causes the formation of a hierarchy of things – including inanimate and living things – in the universe.

The present book is written in a pedagogic style, by explaining all concepts in a basic manner making use of suitable Tables and Diagrams. So the book would serve as text as well as reference for all inquisitive readers.

Introductory note for Kindle eBook Discovery of Reality

The present eBook is a treatise about ontology or theory of reality that deals with the question: what is the reality or fundamental stuff of the universe? The eclectic term reality, or ultimate reality, gets only very scanty mention in the books and dictionaries on philosophy as well as science and religion; such omission is due to the controversies and conflicts between the various conceptions about reality.

In the history of philosophy, there is a vertical split about ultimate reality consequent to the opposite notions of consciousness and matter – these views are generally called idealism and materialism. Additionally there is a parallel thought of mysticism, of which the latest version is the systems philosophy or systems view, popularized in the writings of a group of thinkers including mainly David Bohm, Fritjof Capra and Ervin Laszlo. We need to reconcile all these controversies.

But a sound theory of reality must advance a secular view about the original cause of universe and, at the same time, somehow link with the religious notion of God. This book adopts the intellectual faculty in contrast to the mystic view of religion. So the book introduces a new philosophy, named as System Philosophy, for synthesizing the diverse knowledge under science and religion. This is the reason for the title Discovery of Reality. And, the present book is the sequel to the previous two books Origin of universe and Life and Mind, which have discussed about the application of philosophy for the understanding of physical world, life, evolution and mind.

System philosophy is based on the innovative philosophical notion of system as the union of opposites. It is an integrative thought about the universe as a system of matter and consciousness, where these constituents are in dialectical and productive relation. This view effectively involves the synthesis of rational and empirical aspects of knowledge.

This book starts with the analysis of knowledge and raises the central question: can we synthesize the divergent streams of philosophy? All chapters have a considerable set of original ideas, which are arranged in the seven chapters: A Guide to the Levels of Knowledge |Functional Classification of Philosophy | Worldviews and Versions of Reality | Western Philosophy – Key Doctrines of Great Philosophers |System Philosophy of Reality |Seven Life Systems and Knowledge |Comprehensive View of Truth.

In western philosophy, there are six worldviews under the main groups of organic worldview, spiritual process worldview, mechanistic worldview and physical process worldview. These views would logically lead to seven theories of reality. Then the six worldviews would serve as the framework for giving the basic classification of the entire range of diverse philosophical doctrines. The phrase monistic philosophy is used for denoting this spectrum of doctrines; it distinguishes the erstwhile philosophy from the newly proposed System Philosophy.

Through our synthesis, we get the definition: Ultimate Reality is the system of opposite forces called Body and Consciousness, which are represented by X-axis and Y-axis respectively of coordinate geometry. This is called the System Model of Ultimate Reality. Then reality is like a factory having opposite components of infinite measure. This model establishes the existence of seven manmade social systems also. Importantly, it leads to the comprehensive doctrine about religion involving the concepts of God and Evil as well as the solution to the longstanding problem of evil. Also, the ontological existence of truth and falsehood, with various levels, is demonstrated using the system model.

The present book is written in a pedagogic style, by explaining all concepts in a basic manner making use of suitable Tables and Diagrams. So the book would serve as text as well as reference for all inquisitive readers.
