Shrii P.R. Sarkar solving a riddle of modern science

* Quantum physics and relativity introduced the "observer" but are lacking a causal approach
* Sarkar says that physical reality is the controlling factor, but not the causal factor
* Developing "siddhi" in the field of knowing is of paramount importance to guide the intellect into the subtler planes of research and avoid analytical and philosophical pitfalls

Modern physics is fairly well summarized by quantum physics and relativity theory. And what makes modern physics modern (in comparison to classical physics), is that it essentially recognizes that what is called "the observer", is an existential part and parcel of physical reality. In quantum physics, the "observer" is considered absolute, and that which is being observed is originally "probabilistic" (in other words, not "real" in any way we're used to think). In relativity theory it is in a sense just the way around, namely the observer or "observer frame" is relative (hence, "relativity") whereas the observables (in this case specifically astronomical objects), are absolute.

A purely mathematical effort to reconcile the two almost opposite approaches is the Dirac equation (1928, Paul Dirac), remarkably yielding a few known physical principles which otherwise remained unexplained (spin, anti-particles), as well as certain terms representing yet unknown physical realities. A somewhat more practical way of saying that quantum physics and relativity theory are not yet (fully) reconcilable, is that (the "force" of) gravity is not part of the Standard Model of particles and interactions.

One way or another, the breakthrough revolution of modern physics is the inclusion of a quintessential "observer principle", but what is still lacking is a comprehensive causal approach. In other words, the solution is to be sought in the depth, rather than in the width. The step of introducing a genuine causal framework in modern physics we might refer to as a post-modern approach, and such a post-modern approach could be P.R. Sarkar's microvita cosmology. This can be demonstrated very concisely through Sarkar's concept of "inferences" and their inner structure:

"Waves are created when microvita move through the media of inferences. Inferences are the major waves, but sub-waves are created in them by moving microvita. The major waves function as the controlling waves for the sub-waves. When there is a change in the wavelength of a controlling wave, the entire inference, with all its qualities, gets transmuted. However, if there is a change in the wavelengths of the sub-waves only, the qualities contained in the major wave - that is, in the inference - change". Questions and answers on microvita - Section H

"When the original inferences come in contact with the plane of the universe, they are either reflected or refracted. The unit cannot have the original inference. It has to depend upon and surrender to the Cosmic Reflecting Entity. This is psycho- spiritual practice in the last phase".
Microvita and Cosmology

In short, Sarkar introduces a fundamentally new causal factor (in this case, sub-waves resp. microvita) which is however not the controlling factor. Inferences constitute reality as we normally know it, and according to Sarkar the latter is the controlling factor. This is not different from classical and even modern physics. But unlike in classical and modern physics, physics itself it is not the material cause of reality. More precisely, Sarkar clearly distinguishes between "sub-waves" and "microvita" as causal factors, in such a way that we could think of sub-waves as the immediate cause of major waves, and microvita are the cause of sub-waves, and hence the ultimate cause of major waves.

Further, the concept of "original inference" is especially crucial to help make the intuitional transition from perception-based, to purely conceptual approaches. Somewhat technically, one might think of the "major wave" as the conditional state, and the "original inferences" as the unconditional, yet specialized state. It is a very subtle approach, "on the silver lining between matter and abstract", clearly outside the range of common conception and perception. The subtle fabric of inferences exists of microvita and, in the light of Sarkars comprehensive cosmological approach, (subtle) energy. The unconditional and also unspecialized state is the Universal Entity itself.

Sarkar's integral causal approach is therefore: "Main waves ("inferences")" - "Original inferences" - "Sub-waves" - "Microvita (and energy)".

Hence, Sarkar's new line of thinking requires breakthrough research on two levels:

- Intuitionally, that is, to develop the capacity ("siddhi" in the field of knowing) to perceive the "original inferences". This is of paramount importance to guide the intellect into the subtler planes of research and avoid analytical and philosophical pittfalls. It is probably similar to devotional experience such as "seeing Brahma in everything", only placed in a rather scientific context. One devotee's extraordinary personal account in the actual field of sub-waves and microvita can be viewed here.
- Lab research into the subwave structure of measurable phenomena, especially its implications for yet unsolved problems in modern physics.
