Author: Saravanan Marimuthu | Genre: Non-fiction, Science | Pages: 120 | Publisher: White Falcon Publishing
In ‘The Quantum Reality of Life’, author Saravanan Marimuthu has tried to explore & elucidate few perplexing questions, to which we all seek answers, through the concepts of Science, Religion & Spirituality. But is it possible that these three concepts of mankind are essentially the same, which have been interpreted by our ancestors in different ways at different points throughout our history? And could science be the unifier of all these concepts that can then be quantified & summarized into a single accepted Theory of Mankind? Can our latest discoveries in Quantum Mechanics & its associated theories help us in achieving this objective?
Some books are meant to read and enjoy and then some to read and get on a train to some serious introspection. Not that you don’t enjoy them but the fact that they were written with a bigger purpose than just entertainment lurks at the back of your mind long after you’ve finished reading such books. ‘The Quantum Reality of Life’ by first-time author Saravanan Marimuthu is one such book.
On the surface, this feels like a simple book, on some crucial conundrums such as life, existence, religion, faith, science, etc. But only when you delve deeper do you realise that it has a lot more to offer. Say for instance, the author expounds on the matter by bringing into the picture a term that all of us unconsciously ponder over, but none really try and figure out if it would make a difference, and that concept is ‘The Trifactor of Mankind’ – essentially, an interrelation between Religion, Science, and Spirituality.
There are no fixed good or bad, right or wrong; but just thoughts, actions, consequences, and reactions, concepts that are similar to Quantum mechanics.
Through the course of the book and neatly divided into chapters, he tries to make sense of the different issues, concepts, questions that have plagued mankind since ages. Questions such as what is evolution, what is life, what are the laws of life, karma, if God exists, what is the soul really and does it exist, what is time and how does it bind all, dharma and adharma, etc.
With a backdrop of extensive reading, he debates the existence or nonexistence of these affairs at length, at times, shedding light for a clear perspective to be gained, most times, seeking the light himself. The topics are all interconnected and hence, it is becomes crucial to read and grasp a chapter, a concept well, before proceeding further. His keen knowledge on the topics in question is worth a mention as it shows the meticulous amount of background work that has gone into the making of this book.
The constructiveness and destructiveness of thoughts depend on the limit of the person having it. If you truly think about it, no thought is right or wrong, they just exist and are judged by another person who may, or may not, be in line of acceptance with the person having the thought.Saravanan Marimuthu
As the title suggests, this isn’t for light reading. Your grey matter will experience a dense aura of dedicated indulgence but to emerge victorious you really will have to be patient and persevere. You might gain a few gems you might have been long looking for. If these concepts have eluded you for most part of your life, consider yourself enriched to have been exposed to matters scores of brainy hermits and urban gurus have devoted themselves to.
Does God really exist? Did God create the universe and all matter? Can Science someday define the presence of God? What does God really look like?Saravanan Marimuthu
The language; just like the topic, is demanding, which makes the reading laborious. Suggest you take it slow, and you might just be able to lick that plate clean. Despite all the credible research and passion to reveal to seekers the ultimate truths, there were times, when due to the lack of supportive evidence, the argument felt arbitrary. One might takeaway; for instance, the author tried gaining much more than imparting. Having said that, not once do you feel dull or beaten up, because the knowledge between the pages does reach out and drag you in.
‘The Quantum Reality of Life’ leaves its readers with more than a reading experience. You’ll find yourself searching for answers to questions planted in your conscious mind and long after you’ve had the answers, will your conscience reason the meaning of it all. Don’t tell me I didn’t warn you. If you like swimming in deep waters, this might just be the book for you.
