Nature of Truth

Whatever we consider as truth is relative and not absolute. It is not complete but partial; not eternal but momentary, not universal but local. Sometimes the Law of Uniformity of Nature is labelled as the truth. Actually, the phenomena which cannot be explained by the prevailing laws of nature are considered to be enigmatic and supernatural. But there is no place for supernaturalism and miracles in Nature. Every event in this world is natural. The discoveries by the greatest scientists strike us often as miraculous because they were not known till the time of their discovery. However marvellous these discoveries may appear, they are as natural as any other phenomena; and should not be designated as supernatural. Scientific predictions depend on calculations and calculations have inherent errors. Therefore, attempts to accurately predict the future, anchoring our faith in calculations only, always prove to be futile. Thus, we are compelled to accept that a part of nature will always remain inaccessible to human predictions.

Rejection of the Theory of Ether: Vivekananda’s Ratiocination Heralds Einstein’s Formulation

Rejection of the theory of ether is a natural consequence of the steady development of scientific thoughts conducted by scientists since1881. It is indeed true that the theory of ether was totally rejected only after the epoch-making discovery of the Special Theory of Relativity by Einstein in 1905. However, the ether theory was also rejected by Swami Vivekananda in 1895. But the same had gone unnoticed by the scientific community. After a gap of ten years, the theory was rejected by Einstein. The paper aims at unlocking the scientific insights hidden in the prognostication of Swami Vivekananda.
