“Quantum Mechanics can indeed be extremely complex to grasp, but when we talk about Consciousness, with decades of rigorous studies on the human brain we have realized that actually, there is no other phenomenon in the entire universe that is simpler than the majestic phenomenon of Consciousness.
'If you think you have a solution to the problem of consciousness, you haven’t understood the problem.' This age-old metaphysical and philosophical argument is strictly not true. If you are sufficiently clear-sighted enough, you can realize the problem itself was a matter of the past when we didn’t have insight into the neurological basis of consciousness. And today it is common knowledge in Neuroscience that, all mesmerizing features of the Human Mind, including the glorious Human Consciousness, are born from the tiny specks of jelly inside your head.”
Abhijit Naskar, What is Mind?

Abhijit Naskar
“Any idea of separation is bondage. True liberation of the mind is in non-differentiation.”
Abhijit Naskar, Love, God & Neurons: Memoir of a scientist who found himself by getting lost

Abhijit Naskar
“Any idea of separation is bondage. True liberation of the mind is in non-differentiation. And in the pursuit of breaking free from all the shackles of such man-made bondages, science is the most effective tool we have till this date. But in order to bring out all its effectiveness into the human society, it must be sweetened first with the touch of philosophy. Science without Philosophy leads to chaos. Philosophy without Science leads to nowhere. Only together they can construct a better world.”
Abhijit Naskar, Love, God & Neurons: Memoir of a scientist who found himself by getting lost

“​Let love and compassion reign over the modern human civilization and hatred be a matter of ancient history.”

Abhijit Naskar
“It is an utter insult towards the fascinating neurons of your cerebral cortex, to believe anybody’s words blindly, even if that person is a Scientist or a Philosopher. So, I urge to you, that you must exercise your own reasoning and judgment (that’s what your cerebral cortex is for; to be specific the frontal lobes) at all times.”
Abhijit Naskar, In Search of Divinity: Journey to The Kingdom of Conscience

Abhijit Naskar
“It is much easier to concentrate the mind on external things, than to concentrate on the mind itself. For example, a Neuroscientist can be the smartest man (or woman) on earth in his understanding of the human mind. He may know all the neurochemical changes underlying an outrageous behavior of a person. But when he gets mad himself, very little of his own scientific intellect would actually come in handy for him to control his rage. The virtue of self-control is a skill, which requires practice, regardless of all the neurobiological expertise in the world.”
Abhijit Naskar, In Search of Divinity: Journey to The Kingdom of Conscience

“Raise your children don't train them
RjS”
rassool jibraeel snyman

“One does not ask about one's true identity simply as a matter of course, but only in rather special circumstances. What this means, I believe, is that "who I really am" becomes an issue for me only when my system of values "breaks down," that is, only when I realize that the values according to which I have lived until now are insufficient to inform a life that I can recognize as satisfying. This realization can occur in variety of circumstances: when my beliefs about myself or the world undergo significant change; when I find that two of my values conflict in a fundamental way; or when, as in the present example, the relations among my previous commitments are insufficiently determinate to tell me what to do in the particular situation I face.”
Frederick Neuhouser, Fichte's Theory of Subjectivity

Abhijit Naskar
“Scientific understanding of nature, doesn't make a person religious or atheist. I​t makes a person liberated of all labels. Moreover it makes a person kind and understanding.”
Abhijit Naskar

“Art is the medicine for the soul.”
Abhijit Naskar, The Film Testament

“Odd, though, all these dealings of mine with myself. First I’ve agreed a principle with
myself, now I’m making out a case to myself, and debating my own feelings and
intentions with myself. Who is this self, this phantom internal partner, with whom I’m
entering into all these arrangements? (I ask myself.)”
Michael Frayn, Headlong

“Happiness is a momentary illusion created by momentary neurochemical impulses. Contentment on the other hand, is not a momentary impulse, it is a broader and much more complicated cognitive apparatus, that puts things in perspective in a unique manner, without making you overwhelmed with momentary emotional impulses.”
Abhijit Naskar, Morality Absolute

“When the earth falls into the sun...when the Taj Mahal, Mozart and the Mona Lisa burn to a crisp...what difference will it make.”

“Philosophy of mind is more important for success and happiness than ambition, education, or status.”

“There are people who can not see with their physical eyes, but they see through the mind.Such people can see the live and dead forms in all their colors, movements and strength.They surpass all boundaries, rules, space and time.They live in the eternity of the living energies that come from an empty and pure space, from which wonders occur. If these people could see with their physical eyes too‒they would have a divine nature...”
Dushica Labovich, ENSO

“The ecclesia of new technologies makes us think and work differently than not only the ancient civilizations did, but from how we worked and organized information a decade ago.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

Utpal Kant Mishra
“Pathos is the only emotion that is exclusive to human beings but to realise that one must become humane !”
