About the Author
 Dr. John Hagelin is Professor of Physics and Director of the Doctoral Program in Physics at Maharishi International University. Dr. Hagelin received his A.B. Summa Cum Laude from Dartmouth College in 1975. After completing his Ph.D. at Harvard University in 1981, Dr. Hagelin joined the theoretical physics groups at the European Laboratory for Particle Physics (CERN) and the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center(SLAC), where he became actively engaged in fundamental  research at the forefront of super symmetric unified field  theories. Following his positions at CERN and at SLAC, Dr. Hagelin joined the faculty of Maharishi International Univer sity, where he established a doctoral program in elementary particle physics and unified quantum field theories. Dr. Hagelin has published extensively in the area of supersym- metric unified quantum field theories in such journals as
Physics Letters, Nuclear Physics,
The Physical Review.
 In addition, Dr. Hagelin has gone more deeply than any other scientist into the profound connections between modern physics and the Vedic Science of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

 Abstract In this article, we present a new understanding and language of physics based  directly on the unified field. This understanding is made possible through the latest developments in our understanding of the unified field provided by the superstring and the understanding and experience of the unified field provided by MaharishiVedic Science and its experiential technologies. Our discussion begins with a con sideration of the unified field itself viewed from its own level and in terms of its ownintrinsic properties and behavior. We subsequently extend this analysis to include a systematic investigation of its fundamental modes—the elementary particles and  forces of nature, in which we explicitly identify all known particles with specificvibrational states of the field. We propose a new language and terminology of physics in which the elementary particles are named for the specific vibrational states of  the field they correspond to. The special significance of the Vedic terminology in this context is explained and discussed. We conclude with a consideration of theimplications for society of a fully developed science and technology of the unified  field made possible through the subjective approach of Vedic Science and its applied, experiential technologies.

I. Introduction
It was Einstein's deep conviction that the laws of nature had a simple, geometric,unified foundation, and that this unification could be understood by the human intellect.Within the past two decades, a number of important breakthroughs in this area have ledto a progressively more unified understanding of the laws of nature, culminating in therecent discovery of completely unified field theories. These theories afford, for the firsttime, a self-consistent and completely unified description of the elementary particlesand forces in terms of a single, self-interacting field. The heterotic superstring with aninternal E
gauge symmetry, in particular, unifies all known forces in a consistentquantum theory of gravity. Recent formulations of the heterotic string, including manifold compactifications [1], orbifold compactifications [2], and especially string formulations directly in four dimensions [3], have produced impressive derivations of theobserved low-energy SU(3)xSU(2)xU(l) gauge group and all known matter fieldsdirectly from the underlying, unified superstring field.These achievements mark the beginning of a new era in physics—one in which theunified source and foundation of the entire discipline is fully in view. This unprecedented situation calls for a new understanding and language of physics—one in whichthe elementary particles and forces, and indeed the entire discipline, are clearly understood and expressed in relation to their unified source in the unified field. Until now, theunderstanding and associated terminology of physics has been dominated by historicaland/or random influences. An example of the former is the term "lepton" (meaning"light") which is used today to denote the electron, muon, and tauon and their associated neutrinos. In fact, the tau lepton is actually heavier than most baryons—a termthat means "heavy." The term "quark," which is used to denote the elementary subcon-stituents of baryons and mesons, is a prime example of the randomness of the nomenclature. Originally taken from Joyce's
Finnegans Wake,
the term commonly refers to abreakfast cheese found in Germany and Switzerland.4
