Space expands and so does Virat
January 15, 2011 Leave a comment
Watching TED Talks right now. And in this particular talk they mention that galaxies are moving apart not necessarily through space but because space itself is expanding. For some strange reason, it made me think about what Hindu rishis have said about the cosmos actually being a being. We say that most everything we see is contained within and born from Viratbrahma. We also believe that Virat has a fixed life span. Well as Virat grows with age the space within him would grow as well. And if that is true, then couldn’t space expanding sit well with the Puranic Hindu creation story? I think someone a bit more intelligent than me in science and in scripture might be able to find something interesting in all this.
