Do you know Beethoven? Reply

Based on real incident, perhaps in 2006, published on this website, Feb, 2011.

Proselytize
—————

I hate proselytizers. I miss my bus because of them and I can’t sleep because they knock on my doors .

This really happened.

P: Hi bro

M: hey

P: You heard Beethoven?

M: No
(I am thinking one part of that no is, yes)

P: He played Piano long long ago

The problem of eating beef. Reply

Is eating beef an act which is so morally repugnant that it can take lives? We wouldn’t imagine such with an ideally and intellectually sensitive human society. But we don’t, we live in communities which does not care so much about what it can infer as “other’s” ways. Lets not get ourselves embroiled, to believe that, thats a superfluous statement.

One would argue, we do care about others values and culture and others ways of looking at things and at a grosser level others comfort in riding a public transport, others availability and unavailability in attending to us for what we need them for.

But, I am talking about “others” as a mark of identification and not an immediately concocted response, to deal with a social situation.

At a deeper level, we often transgress, into interfering with others ways, simply because, we identify them as ‘others’. We deliberately create a ruckus, about ‘issues’, simply because, the issues do not affect us the way we perceive it affects others.

Its dishonesty and its violence. Read a short article here why I think “dishonesty is violence”.

We gang up on others and create false notions of vulnerability and mark others as adverse, simply because we have deep prejudices of defining our roles and identifications, as being markedly different, from what we confer onto those, that would not fit into such roles.

One of the determinant, in delving into making a demarcation of what constitutes ‘others’, is the idea of proving superiority. And its an age old problem, but more than that it prevails in today’s communities, in a way it would not let us make progress as humans. More…

The begetarian Hindu, “Hindujin ha” Reply

While writing vegetarian I accidentally wrote begeterean which goes towards bigotry. Supremacy. Vegetarian Supremacy.

But I just wanted to write a small episode about Vegetarianism in “Hindu”. [“Hindu” like “Dharma” is one of the most abused word in modern context, in-fact everything we inherited from our forefathers; we have abused, including ourselves.]

When I was in Japan, (which I am always at) the very polite Japanese people (especially ladies, no holds no bar, cool) threw off at times a particular conundrum toward my psyche. I have been non-veggy from quite young times. (Although borne into a Hindu brahmana family, brahmana, etymo; maharajya maanya, “the honorable” from the nation, Japanese; monoyabaraka)

The conundrum was this; why Hindu people drink cow’s milk but not eat its meat, if cow is holy. [such was silently murmured in little shops, as they were utterly deluded as to howto make sense so that they can serve their customers better]

[giyuu niyuu, giyuu niku] = [Cow Milk, Cow Meat]

The totalitarians often would give you “for Hindus cows are holy, like mother, can we cut our own mother? We drink only mother’s milk na.”

So far so good, A logical analyst like me, while finds cutting an(y) animal for food a bit harsh, yes, but nonetheless just milking the cow is also harsh, and we have tried to find a middle path or moderate approach toward having “rest to mind” by agreeing milking is a far less harsh situation.

We do not tie a woman and lactate her and let her live in shit-bed and even supply that milk via OmFed. Okay that’s a bit funny, but that would be quite harsh and in some people’s definitions P-Graphic.

So the whole question of cow-worship as holy-mother is bullish. It only served us to bring a softer version of “harshness” and we are all facing harsh reality of life and must survive hence cow’s milk serves our purpose of being moderate as opposed to “meat eating aggressors”.

But there is a raging controversy about it and a lotta heated argument especially among Hindu Intelligentsia as to shall we or shall we not eat the cow-meat. I have oftentimes as early as 2004-05 maintained a stoic stance  “Food is a personal choice and no one shall insinuate another about their food choice especially in veiled religious aggression”.

We can all become vegetarians but it won’t absolve us of our aggression toward “OTHER” religion. Vegetarianism is not a license to insinuate others, whether meat eaters, halal meat eaters or any kind. In-fact it merely comes from a habit of forming an identity of OTHERs and taunt them regarding how their ways are total bullish and ours is better, then aggression is associated to meat and non-aggression and non-violence to non-meat products, better Hindus vs despicable hindus and so on. We have even invented how garlic is “inflammatory and should be rejected” possibly because it gets used in cooking meat. Our chauvinism has no bound.

But the fact is tying a cow is also violence, if its a Holy Animal. [Although not as violent as cutting its flesh and enjoying, the chicken would also cry, I want to be “holy hindu poultry”]

All in All from food habit we can not decide who is a good person or who is not, from drink habits or smoke habits or any kind of habits we can’t. Someone had said “All habits are bad habits”. (Some would say your writing is a bad habit, but then, what can I say, I only try to bring balance to my psyche by writing, volition of thoughts shall we call it?)

I shall end by saying “Hindu jin ha omoshiroi”. That the Hindu people are interesting. But Hindu shall only mean one from India. Hence one can if say, All Islam is Hindu, one can also say all Hindu are Islam. How can that not be? It can be because we are all mixed to the quantum. Which is where we run into another problem, that we invented for ourselves. History as a license to invent and reinvent.

Everything loses its meaning at the torment of the quantum. We shall realize the quantum and be happy. How about that, even Dalai Lama agrees on that.

Happy lunch hour, I just had mine. Stay Cool.

Madras, the etymo, “cogito ergo sum”. Reply

mangal which also means welfare. Because again, 2ndary, all nouns have primary meaning sun, 2ndary and therefore 2ndary to 2ndary and so on, anything; tree, place, life forms, action, people, law, … thats how language developed, according to sun as central theory, and I think it was known far deeper into humanity’s history, the most primate civilizations, so heliocentrism in philosophy and religion might have predated the modern science, OR modern science as in Galileo, might have been the recent successful renaissance after Religious bigotry over ruled all forms of heliocentrism to run its covert practices, by subverting the actual sun to various forms of regional and national cultural Gods, thats is Budha, Jesus, Shiva, Bishnu they all might simply have been derived by subverting the humanist helio-centric philosophies. The nasty politics we see today is a result of much ancient practice of elaborate forms of bullying; religious subversion. And in-fact they are. There is enough attributes in all these provincial and religious gods from the philosophical and universally humanistic God: Sun. More…

Happy birthday Newton, but really? Reply

There are no merry Christmas or happy Diwali at the level of the quantum. At that level we are all screwed, and the only things that worked out in our favor is a likelihood thats a part per million. Thats why scientists call it: contingent, laws of nature are arbitrarily, favorable to our existence and not drafted by the mercy of a wishful blown-up entity as desired by intelligent design and goes by various names or forms. Thankfully enough, explicitly enough we have accessed the quantum since a 100 years although even the Greek Philosophy talks about indeterminacy of truth. Thankfully enough we have also traversed as far as we could in our mission to know the cosmos, but we have been doing the first works since the time of Galileo. Newton, happy belated birthday Sir, last time we met was a bust of yours, standing in a garden, good enough only to make a joke about and of you, that was 3 years ago, you have changed the course of Physics for all time to come, in the right direction, more or less, by differentials, the ones that you invented, and the ones that we are still putting into our favorite computers, just like you were using the formula of Ibn Sahl … More…

The refined meaning of “everything”. (Language, Religion and Philosophy) Reply

Eureka: The power of sun theory of language. The Bi (said as Be) in sanscrit (you can see the beauty of sun theory it immediately reads as sun+script, rotate it it still reads som+sikruta meaning approved by the Lords or approved to be SUN) My discovery was tedious and painful over couple years when I saw light (of sun). Linguistic light is always that of sun. But here is that eureka. The bi (said as be) of sanskruta is often said to mean: anti, without etc. But its real (sun theory origination) is from m/b alternation. Which is why me/ma/maha has alternated to-and-from be/bi(big)/baha/baja etc. They both mean: great (among other things such as Lord, Mother, Father, name f place: baja California eg) for the same reason that they correspond to Sun. (baja, bhaya etc are the phonetic alternation of maha/maga etc and both mean great or SUN)

So bideha does not mean without-body (bi+deha) but it actually means maha+daya (The great mercy, the great rise etc = Sun) which is bideha is a name of place/person etc in accordance with sun-theory as has often been proclaimed by me. (and its here that mahodaya=honorable, budha etc are the words that are created from it) More…
