Excerpts from Books of Wisdom, Physics and Mathematical Logic

Thought and Beyond


This manuscript was presented at a conference on consciousness in Italy in 2004. The first part discusses Eastern thought in concise form.

In the second part of this manuscript, excerpts are given of the Tao Te Ching with a new translation of the oldest known verses found in 1993 in a tomb that was sealed before 278 B.C. at Guodian, Hubei Province. Some verses, not found at the Guodian site, are translated from the verses found in 1973 in a tomb at Mawangdui, Hunan Province, sealed in 168 B.C.

The Chinese characters shown in an added mini Chinese-English dictionary are handwritten and not yet digitised. Excerpts of The Original Gita are also included and some explanations of the Stanzas of Dzyan.

In the third part consistency with physics and mathematical logic is discussed.
