My Mind and My Thought
It all started way back in 1980’s. I had just finished my Masters in Biological Science. Iwas not a believer.
I could only visualize God as an invention of the intelligent to rulethe ignorant.
I had seen from childhood the so called elite taking common man for aride. When I had to take up a career, after much deliberation, I opted to take a researchcareer. I just hoped to contribute some thing to humanity, in the process of completingmy journey. I think I did have some philosophical bent of mind.I put my mind on my consciousness as I took up some of the most challenging and toughresearch topic much against the advice of my teacher’s. My immediate choice wasCancer Research, but I ended in a lab that clones commercially important plants such asCoconut. Coming form a farming family, it naturally gave me impetus to attempt it. Thelab was an ordinary lab, not recognized by the University for Research Work. The lab belonged to a catholic priest and I was influenced by his sermon about Mendel, Meyer,Einstein and such greats who became famous, just because of their work. The topic I washandling was a topic of research for many multinational companies and government labswith a head start of over 10-15 years. After a year of day and nights works I did repentfor not taking my teachers advice. My research was a non starter.After a year, I took a break to spend few days with my friends in a reputed institute.During this period, I read a book by philosopher Jiddu Krishna Moorthy. Reading it Ilearnt an art of standing back from problems and observing it from a point of freedom or self. Through these exercises I found that the goal to which I am working[dedifferentiation and differentiation of information] is some thing nature does routinely.I began to observe the plants and nature intensively. A form of communication developedwith life and nature. My communication with nature changed my approach toexperiments. And success began to flow in everything I touchedBut my communication with life and nature also opened many questions. Nature and life began to reveal the ignorance on which I stand and work. Cloning assumes that biologicalinformation is stable and predictable. But my experiments were clearly speaking that theyare unpredictable. I could feel the struggle of pieces of tissues and cells in the artificialenvironment. I saw them react and emerge to sustain themselves in different manner.Further nature was reminding me that I do not know, why she mixes her information,why her genetic element is double helical, why gene is a triplet code, why dominant andrecessive and so on. The information I am dealing with is built up one there is some thingelse behind it that is surviving. The work I am doing appeared naïve, I just could not believe how the millions working in the temples of science are dumb to these basicrealities2
