"I thought that Nietzsche meant a sort of thing-in-itself behind the psychological phenomenon… I saw then also that he was producing a concept of the self which was like the Eastern concept; it is an Atman idea (Jung, 'Nietzsche’s Zarathustra,' vol I p391)
I suspect, my friends, that we have a long and terrible road ahead of us before people in Europe understand what Gebser or Blake were about, or people in India also understand what Aurobindo was about. But may it happen.

Well as per #SriAurobindo's description, Ravana is representative of the powers of the vital Ego making its own satisfaction the rule of life. So to ascribe any great virtuous thought as his rule of life would be incoherent..

THUS SPOKE THE DIVINE
A Power that lives upon the heights must act,
Bring into life’s closed room the Immortal’s air
And fill the finite with the Infinite.
-Sri Aurobindo (Savitri)
Mental intelligence cannot reach out to Sri Aurobindo's Gita. One must develop the faculty of higher reason, even if intuition is unreachable for him/her. https://t.co/XopHZlKefH
It is our hope that as the work has begun, so it will continue in the spirit of Nationalism and not only the political circumstances of India be changed but her deeper diseases be cured and by a full evocation of her immense stores of moral and spiritual strength that be accomplished for India which Mazzini could not accomplish for Italy, to place her in the head and forefront of the new world whose birth-throes are now beginning to convulse the Earth.

God-consciousness is not exclusive of world-consciousness; Nature is not an outcast from Spirit, but its Image, world is not a falsity contradicting Brahman, but the symbol of a divine Existence. (Isha Upanishad) #SriAurobindo
Sri Aurobindo — Arya – Vol 6. No 2 — September 1919:
A Defense of Indian Culture (A Rationalistic Critic on Indian Culture) 8 – pp.91-105
LVIII. The Elements of Perfection – pp.79-86
Recent English Poetry (3) – pp.106-114
Karma and Freedom – pp.115-128
Above the Gunas – pp.65-78
Roy Bhaskar wrote many books to explicate reality but towards the end of his life he could spot the spider. Then there was nothing much to explain the web in isolation. However, his followers were aghast; how could he commit such a sacrilege! Publishing industry too was dismayed.
Scholarship shouldn't be resented; persons shouldn't be despised. The content should be the focus. What's good must be appreciated; what's flawed or distorted, deliberately or otherwise, needs to be countered. With sufficient caution and due academic humility; by producing fresh.
India is at the crossroads. No respect for knowledge; it's fashionable and prestigious to push planted narratives. Decibels are more credible than crucibles of truth. Entire corpus of Sri Aurobindo should have been part of syllabus but Universities are yet to evince any interest.
No national level institution dedicated to Sri Aurobindo studies. As a result, ambivalence persists on his views on several crucial issues. Even a chair somewhere will be able to produce diverse papers to popularise his relevance and break resistance. But, no one with conviction.

On their own, can gene, protein or enzyme and so on found in a cell regulate anything? You can get the convincing answer for this question by putting those element on a Petri dish. Stone carving chisel and hammer (gene, protein or enzyme and so on) cannot do any regulative action by their own. It is the artificer (cell) which is responsible for all those controlled actions that we find in a cell.
The mindless accumulation of knowledge on genetics to gain some academic/financial benefits without considering the role of sentient nature of cell cannot help us in our attempt to understand life. All those studies which simply ignore the concept of self (or soul) are simply wild goose chasing. Thanking you. Sincerely,

Like genes, the electro-dynamic fields also on their own cannot achieve any useful functions. Electro-dynamic fields on their own cannot correct the errors during DNA replication. A sentient agent is necessary to use the electro-dynamic fields in a useful manner. That is the main point that we are discussing on this thread. Thanking you. Sincerely,

Sripad Puri Maharaja also highlighted that in modern science due to our over reliance on materialistic view of reality we do not see the Reality as an organic whole. Thus, we do not worry so much about the purpose of the thing that we observe.
A nose in the body (organic whole) does not exist without any purpose and similarly the Sun in the Solar System does not exist without a purpose. Like a nose in the body cannot be seen as a randomly protruding portion of the face in the process of embryological development, similar the Sun in Solar system also cannot be seen as a mere random event in the developing solar system.
Due their over reliance on physical sciences, scientists have only tried to understand the reality from the view point of determinism and when they seriously fail in that attempt, they come up with the argument that the world is full of random happenings. The artifacts of abstractions that we see in modern science in the form of different theories are nothing but a representation of serious distortion of true reality. This framework in modern science can only be seen as an essential step in the struggle for knowledge by an egocentric approach which inherently ignores the organic interconnectedness of whole reality. However, to advance beyond this impasse we have to adopt a more receptive atmosphere in science for an organic concept of reality where everything can be seen with respect to the purpose of the center of the organic whole and not in isolation. Thanking you. Sincerely,

The potential that Burr found is a force related to the primal streak, the development of the notochord, then the neural tube then the CNS - and obviously this being the axis, it has to do with chakras etc. But it is not the only principle manifesting in the body - a more primal one is pulsation. My thesis includes this and I am working on a paper now which I hope will make some of these concepts and their functions clearer. The soul for me is not the body, but is expressing itself through a body. Self-realisation is about this.

One leading example is Michael Behe, author of three books which strongly argue for intelligent design behind evolution, of which two (The Edge of Evolution and Darwin Devolves) strongly support common descent, even to the point of giving several arguments for it. This makes Behe especially dangerous to the cause of atheistic materialism.
