Sri Aurobindo is the most cerebral of all the twentieth century enlightened visionaries

Dear Vinod, Colin and Tusar,

Thanks for encouragement to the idea that fundamental particles may have qualia at some rudimentary level. May be I went too far in the other direction in saying that it is “wild conjecture”. Thanks Tusar for pointing out “theoretical sanction” of Sri Aurobindo to such ideas. Hopefully science will be able to incorporate such ideas in not too distant future.

Best Regards.
