Description

While modern science has recognized the interplay of energy and matter, it has not realized the intrinsic relationship between these two and mind. This is the boundary where physics ends and supraphysics begins. This scholarly work is a sequel to author's earlier works Before the Beginning and After the End and The Cosmic Matrix.

The term 'supraphysics' relates to the domain of subtle, all-pervasive forces which underlie material reality. Mana, prana and wak belong to the supraphysical domain and become discernible to us as mind, energy and matter. In the process of this revealing discussion, readers are witness to tantalizing glimpses of the much vaster horizon of the Vedas - the ancient texts exploring humankind's quest to know Ultimate Reality, bequeathed to us by the rishis of 'seer-scientists'.
