Stephen Hawking Opens New Frontiers In The Science Of God

By Promod Puri In his mind, physically-challenged Stephen Hawking explored the cosmos, and he got a much clearer picture of how the universe came into existence. In the quest, he could not find the god commonly believed to be up there and responsible for this creation. However, as a physicist, he found his god in his dedicated daily karmas (works) in the astronomical objects called “black holes,” and in the Quantum theory explaining the universe at the subatomic depths. Hawking’s understanding of the nature of black holes and quantum mechanisms can be helpful in knowing how the universe was born. University … Continue reading Stephen Hawking Opens New Frontiers In The Science Of God

Besides Humans Everything Else Has Consciousness Too

By Promod Puri What is the difference between you, me, and a spoon, a table, a stone, or any object or a thing? Both are physical matters. But we have consciousness others don’t. Or maybe they have it which we don’t sense. That is what distinguishes you and me, and the “non-consciousness” objects. How is this distinction is created through consciousness which defines the nature of the physical matter of being a mindful or non-mindful entity? There are two theories. Before we approach these concepts let us define or get a practical understanding of consciousness. According to Wikipedia consciousness is … Continue reading Besides Humans Everything Else Has Consciousness Too

Mega-Havan: What A Nonsense

Precious woods for a mega-Havan are being burnt in Uttar Pradesh, India, when the poor are desperately looking for some fuel for cooking. In this ritual protein-rich ghee is also used in very large quantities, rather it can be given to malnourished poor children for their growth. All the Havan stunts are being performed in the name of purification of the atmosphere, but these rituals definitely add to more pollution. -Promod Puri, author Hinduism Beyond Rituals,Customs And Traditions progressivehindudialogue.com Continue reading Mega-Havan: What A Nonsense

God And Religion Of Stephen Hawkins

Physically-challenged Stephen Hawking’s mind explored the cosmos, and from where he got a clear picture of how the universe came into existence. In this quest, he could not find the god commonly believed to be up there and responsible for this creation. However, as a physicist, he found his god in his dedicated daily karmas (works) in the astronomical objects that are too massive and dark to be anything but “black holes” of bottomless pits, and in the Quantum theory explaining the universe at the subatomic depths. His God was in his thoughts and works which is more meaningful and … Continue reading God And Religion Of Stephen Hawkins

Cavities In Cuban Communism

Cuba has one of the lowest rates of internet usage in the Western Hemisphere, and access to media is strictly restricted—but that doesn’t stop Cubans from watching Game of Thrones. Their secret is El Paquete Semanal (“The Weekly Packet”), a clandestine in-person file-sharing network that distributes hard drives and flash drives full of media. Nobody quite knows how El Paquete, which has thrived since the mid-2000s, is created or how it makes its way across the country every week. -Quartz Continue reading Cavities In Cuban Communism

Stephen Hawking’s God & His Dharma

For most of us we have a mindset personified image of God. And that is what Hawkins rejected. His God resided in his rational thinking and dedicated research which was in the cosmos world and beyond. For that reason he knew more about God than the god most of us perceive. His God was in his thoughts and works or karma, not in a ritualistic religious place. It is wrong to say that Hawkins was not a religious person. His karma was his dharma. -Promod Puri Continue reading Stephen Hawking’s God & His Dharma

Power Of Now Is Powerless Without Past & Future

Past, present, and future are interlinked, and complimenting to each other with indelible events, experiences, karmas, and imaginations. The act of managing the future involves gathering and distilling the right information from the archives of the past within the time span of the present. The independence of “now” does not exist. Understanding and embracing the “power of now” are in fact related to past and future moments. Any expression of the “now” moment like, “I am very happy and enjoying myself,” is compared to the past or future moments. The comparison or contrast with past or future moments gives “now” … Continue reading Power Of Now Is Powerless Without Past & Future

How the flu works its way into Our body

-Laura Haynes, Prof. of Immunology, University of Connecticut Influenza virus causes an infection in the respiratory tract, or nose, throat and lungs. The virus is inhaled or transmitted, usually via your fingers, to the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose or eyes. It then travels down the respiratory tract and binds to epithelial cells lining the lung airways via specific molecules on the cell surface. Once inside the cells, the virus hijacks the protein manufacturing machinery of the cell to generate its own viral proteins and create more viral particles. Once mature viral particles are produced, they are released from … Continue reading How the flu works its way into Our body

IRRESPONSIBE MEDIA CREATED ATWAL CONTROVERSY

The Jaspal Atwal controversy relating to prime minister Justin Trudeau’s recent visit to India, in reality, is indeed a non-issue from the very beginning. It was in fact created by the Canadian media, led by the CBC. There are three reasons for its generation and development: 1. The Canadian media is sensational, 2. The Canadian media is racist, 3. The Canadian media is immature. As a result, the prime minister and his accompanying Liberal MPs were caught up in a web of their own political naivety. Moreover, the entire Canadian Sikh community has been brought into focus, and the Khalistan … Continue reading IRRESPONSIBE MEDIA CREATED ATWAL CONTROVERSY
