About the Book :

This book is the outcome of two decades of author’s reflection over this subject. Ontological mysticism is the basis for the philosophical and the scientific truth and reality. Twenty first century is ushering in an era of spiritual renaissance. There is a convergence of science and spirituality. The relativity and quantum mechanics are coming closer to Vedantic and Buddhistic concept of truth and reality. The book analyses and examines different philosophical and scientific concepts both from the transcendental and the relativistic perspective. It has also introduced a new concept in the form of cosmic consciousness as the ultimate reality and the scientific and philosophical importance of subject or perceiver. Subject or perceiver may be accepted as the fifth dimension. The cosmic consciousness is the only reality that exists. This book is full of paradoxes and contradictions, it is full of allegories and metaphors: they are not truths but pointer to deeper and profound truth. Sometimes myths and metaphors, fables and allegories speak out greater truth than truth itself as truth is mystical and metaphysical.
