According to the scientist Sir James Jeans, the latest discoveries in Physics are hinting at a universe that is less of a machine and more of a great thought. Cartesian view of the Mind as an accidental product in the realm of matter is slowing waning and the older idea of the mind being the creator and the governor of the realm of matter is reviving itself. Sanskrit literature abounds in the elaboration of the latter. A Sanskrit work is called a “Purana” only if it includes the exposition of the creation process. Eight thousand meditating Rishis created eighteen Puranas and in each of them they repeat the following creation view.

Brahma, the self born, found himself in the cosmic void and started looking for his creator. After searching around in futility, he took to meditating. He created beings within the mental plane. The beings he created at first, knew the secret of his creation and resolved not to become entangled in the creation of the mind. Brahma then started creating other beings and hid a part of reality from their mental view. Their sense of individuality remained stronger despite them having an occasional glimpse into the nature of pure consciousness. They and their progeny could created beings only by mating because of their stronger belief in matter.

The human race calls Brahma as the grand-father, being separated from Brahma by the first in the line of beings who hold a limited view of reality. A human sees the full reality only on his/her own volition. Extant Yoga traditions, alluded to in the Puranas, continue to support a resolute mind aspiring for the experience of unification with pure consciousness. A peer reviewed paper published in Physics Essays, highlights how a resolute mind can impact matter, through a smartly designed statistical experiment. This experiment shows that using the focus of the mind one is able to alter the behavior of electrons and the alternation is far more consistent in the case of meditation practitioners  The following video clip provides a simple understanding of the references to the quantum field experiment in the paper.
