Beyond the Science

A Hypothetical Question to all Dear readers (Scientists): –  

Philosophy, now Science and its practical application, and then What next (?)

Any knowledge doesn’t emerge at once, it comes gradually and transforms into new and better one, a kind of evolution.

Philosophy is(a non mathematical knowledge) a way of thinking and asking questions about the world, by observing it without any practical experiment.  And as we know it almost got transformed into science and science’s practical application called technology.

Science is the knowledge about natural world that is based on facts learned through observation and experiments.Will science get transformed into something which will not be a science rather something else called then what for instance?

Then what (?) would be, probably a non mathematical knowledge, something beyond and above the mathematics, science.  Just like science is advance than philosophy and then what (?) would be advance than the science.

To you, dear reader (Scientists), what it would be like, can you define or imagine it? Watching through the spectacles of science or rather imagining beyond the science. Though it sounds and seems weird, rather mind-boggling even then it deserves our attention and the answer.

I am a philosopher not a scientist. Science is everywhere, philosophy is almost transformed. So, to you, is there a probability of happening then what (?). Whether it rests between somewhere in the probability scale of Yes or No, or the science is ultimate achievement, a dead end? To get the broader visualization, imagination, share it with all, without any discrimination (of gender, age, borders or Religion).

Thank you very much for grasping the idea, hypothesis.

Finding the balance between diplomacy and morality: review of the book Arthashastra

We use the great guru Acharya Chanakya’s ideology and motivation in our training. We used to read his great thoughts in our native language translations. I wish Acharya Chanakya should have born in our country. Great respect for him, India was very lucky to have him. ~ a business diplomat

Whether you want to be a leader or be successful in your career, you do have to face the harsh realities of the world. Starting from dealing with groups, societal, office and hierarchical to international politics, Arthashastra is the best book that can teach you how to thrive in this ever-challenging world. The original version offers several insights from multiple perspectives and covers wide range of topics including economics, administration, leadership, responsibilities, and diplomacy.

As the saying goes ‘straight trees are cut first’, if one is not aware of how power dynamics work, the result will always go in the way of matsya nyaya (‘the law of fishes’) where the big always eats away the small. My important take away from the book is learning how even an incapacitated person can defend himself against his powerful adversaries and win on them just by understanding and shrewdly analyzing the situation.

Important note is that the book writings date back to more than two millenniums ago and was originally written by Acharya Chanakya in Sanskrit language. It has undergone several expansions, compositions, translations and redaction over the centuries. The present version available in the market is the translated version of the rediscovered manuscripts. The book by itself is very complex, exhaustive and meticulous. So you would be lost in details if you don’t have a context on authentic Indian history. To get better understanding and bigger picture, I would also suggest reading few other books such as Difficulty of being good (Gurcharan Das), The prophet (Kahlil Gibran), Krishna the man and his philosophy (Osho), David and Goliath (Malcolm Gladwell), Corporate Chanakya (Radhakrishnan Pillai) before going to Arthashastra as the book by itself is very thorough and extensive by its nature.
