Excerpts from article
The visible world is only a small part of reality, which again is relative to an observer. Human beings experience only a sliver—20 Hz to 20,000 Hz—of the vast world of sounds. For bats and some other creatures it is a different sonic universe. Recent explorations in some branches of theoretical physics have led to the formulation of the idea of a multiverse. Moreover, many astrophysicists suggest that only about five per cent of our universe comprises of visible matter. The rest is composed of dark energy and dark matter, whose properties are elusive.
The human mind is unaware of many things outside and inside the body. However, to an introspective person, the universe appears to be a graded existence from the gross to the subtle. Sri Vidya is a subtle conception of tracing the relationship between various levels of existence. This vidya, science, structurally correlates the microcosm and the macrocosm and establishes a connection between the human body, the cosmic body, and the geographical body.
