Inadequacy of Science


Review of the book “Intangitia-the Next Knowledge Wave after Science”

By Arunima Barua

We all are familiar with the tangible world around us. There is almost nothing that hasn’t been explained by Science through its numerous laws, formulae, experiments etc. But still some things are ever eluding a scientific revelation. This almost is like the oft repeated cliché ‘everything cannot be explained by Science’. One becomes more aware of this inadequacy of Science after reading the book “Intangitia- the Next Knowledge Wave after Science”.

The author seemed in requirement of altogether a new word to describe the concept he presents in the book and so we get ‘Intangitia’ – a newly coined word. The author offers its description as this – ‘a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the Intangible Absolute as far as can be comprehended within the Intangible dimension of the Universe’.

One may question, what are these intangibles? What is it that hasn’t been explained by science? Intangitia asks basic questions, but relevant ones; it puts forward intriguing and profound topics, but uncomplicated ones. It urges us to wonder whether we altogether need a new way of probing into what nature perhaps is hiding from us, probably a greater treasure than what she has revealed to science so far.

Intangitia deals with many concepts like the origin of origins, the consciousness, Life Energy and very probable and interesting concepts of MindOS and KDBMS. With the world busy talking about God-particles, is it not possible that something more fundamental can emerge if we further dissect it? Can we have an operating system for the mind to tap and exploit its full potential? Will the future of networking be able to transfer thoughts from one mind to another without secondary tools of expression and also what would be the protocols and security-measures for doing so? Death is defined as ‘cessation of all biological functions’ by science, but is there a deeper intention behind the death of a physical body and is the mind also involved in it? Physical bodies are destroyed after death, what happens to the mental body i.e. the mind with its impressions? According to science we have evolved from the monkeys, but why at all does evolution take place?

Myriad questions will certainly evolve in the reader’s mind after reading this book. Probably, the time has come to not rest complacently with the answers which science has given us. At close to eight thousand words, this book, though short, provides an interesting read. The book is available in paperback and ebook format and as well as android and windows phone app in leading online marketplaces like Amazon, Flipkart, Infibeam, Scribd(world’s largest digital library), Google Play and Windows Phone Store.
