Advaita and Metaphysics

I like the psychedelic fusion music of the Delhi (India) band Advaita. Besides their music, their philosophy (quoted below) is quite interesting, specially the relation between the philosophical and metaphysical states of advaita.

Advaita: ‘a’- non, ‘dvaita’ – dual

Advaita means experiencing all as “One”, because in reality everything stems from one universal “Energy” or “Consciousness”.

Advaita has an interesting resonance with the study of metaphysics and most specifically with the relation between Energy and matter.

Einstein’s equation;

E = mc2

Where E = energy and m = mass of a particle and c = speed of light

Also Einstein established that

E = hí

Where E = Energy of a wave, and h = Planck’s constant and í = frequency of the wavelength.

The two equations combined give the result;

hí = mc2

This directly relates the mass of a particle to its frequency, which tells us that anything material has an associated wavelength. This in turn gives us a very interesting relationship between mass and energy, matter is another form of waves which in turn is another form of energy .It is also scientifically established that “Energy can neither be created nor destroyed”, which again takes us to the point that the whole Universe is a manifestation of that “One energy”(that is Non-Dual in nature or “Advaita”) which exhibits itself in many changeable forms (mass, wave, different energy forms etc).

One thought on “Advaita and Metaphysics”

  1. I don’t think
    and I don’t write
    I am the Laughter
    that hands think
    and egos write:
    Reality is Silence
    the Universe is its noise

    Silence is the quantum-gap.
    Noise is all around
    but none can enter this Reality,
    the quantum-gap, Silence.

    The quantum-gap filters noise into thoughts.

    The quantum-gap filters noise into thoughts
    the mind has for all its
    ignorance and knowledge
    order and chaos.

    The order is NOW
    and chaos is time.

    The quantum-gap filters the thoughts we call particles
    into the elements the universe needs for all its
    metals and non-metals
    chaos and order
    order and chaos.

    The order is Maya, Now
    the Chaos is Karma, time.

    I AM Untouchable, Complete and Content.

    I need no gods
    ‘cause I need no servants
    And if I needed servants
    I would still need no gods.

    I need no scriptures
    ‘cause I need no toilet paper
    And if I did need toilet paper
    I would still need no scriptures.

    I AM Silence
    that some call Samadhi
    but the gods call nothing
    even though I AM the EVERYTHING
    without which there is no noise
    I filter into thoughts, particles, toilet paper
    and gods.

    Reality is SILENCE
    these words are its noise.
