I am a medical doctor with specialization in taking care of patients with diseases of lung and organ transplantation. My blog is an exploration of fundamental concepts in our understanding of nature. I strongly believe in three ideas: Physical reality is infinite, potentiality of human mind is limited and there is no such a thing as absolute truth. We are only capable of capturing a fraction of the universe using our senses and instruments for the purpose of ‘human understanding’. Our knowledge will always remain as partial truth of the universe. With refinement in our techniques and the conceptual models, our knowledge can progressively get less inaccurate over time as we explore the infinite universe. I have a deep fascination for concept of time and the flow of energy through living systems and its contribution to origin of life, evolution, health, aging and death. Science is merely an idea created by the human mind that a more accurate knowledge can be obtained only by an unbiased observation and experimentation of nature. Most human societies have viewed science as a villain even though they thoroughly indulge in the richness provided by the scientific exploration. The villainous association is a result of either bitterness caused by truth when it shatters the charms of myth or from disastrous application of knowledge by human greed. Humans have an innate desire to both understand and dominate nature. Proliferation of knowledge by any method will naturally lead to advancement in technologies for domination. It is very similar to what humans did after we had learned to control fire. Science is just a method to obtain knowledge. It can be directionless and meaningless. Philosophy should provide the epistemological framework for science so that our pursuit can be ‘meaningful’.
