I graduated as a Mechanical engineer before 20 years. @ that time Thermodynamics was a tough subject and required better understanding. Hence I decided to attend special sessions of a professor in Bangalore, to pass my college exams. During this course there was a specific session on law of conservation : "Energy can neither be created nor destroyed".
To make this whole session interesting, the professor quoted us with incidents about a known mystic in Whitefield, Bangalore at that time. The mystic had a strange ability to generate items like wrist watch (proper one) from air/space and passed it on to his visitors. This was a pretty frequent happening during his addressing. However every single time the branding details like HMT, Titan, Made in India etc was there on the product without fail. Stating these the professor put forward a question "If the product was pulled out of space ,why was the brand and other details, which we see in a showroom are a part of this product. Should it not carry the name of the Mystic". A conclusion to that discussion in our session that day was. He was able to port an existing mass from one place to other and show case it to visitors, however was not responsible for creating it"
This session made me think on the particular thermodynamics law deeply. Let's talk little bit of science here, as it is necessary for the topic.
LAW : "Energy can neither be created nor destroyed "
- Energy is : Defined as the ability/capacity to do work
- Work is : Energy transfer by force
- Power is : Is the rate of doing work
( Any change in internal energy = heat(q) that flows across boundaries + work(w) done on the system by surroundings)
Let's try and see how this science is in line with Siddhars/ Ancient Texts
Nâsato vidyate bhâvo, nâbhâvo vidyate satah....Bhagavad Gita
Meaning of above phrase:There is no becoming of what did not already exist, there is no unbecoming of what does exist.
This in other words are in line with the law "energy can neither be created nor destroyed". It also means the sources of energy was ever existent. When it comes to our physique, it is the body that gets undone after power is dissipated due to constant work. When the source of energy is extinct body perishes. So any item that has physique(boundary and system) is subject to 2 kind of processes, heat and work that can lead to a change in the internal energy.
However any moving object is also subjected to Kinetic energy, Potential energy, Gravitational Energy and more of energies that are discovered and not discovered by science till now. All these energies track their way back to the primordial energy as their source. From the source that was neither created nor destroyed, all different form of energies have been transferred/created as a part of evolution.
A siddha tracks back his energy source to the primordial and understand the scientific secrets of evolution. The Siddhas and Rishis worked on their humans bodies and transformed them to conserve the life energy within them. A song of Thirumoolar tells us the need for prolonging a healthy body to understand and conserve the life energy.
உடம்பால் அழியின் உயிரால் அழிவர்
திடம்பட மெய்ஞானம் சேரவும் மாட்டர்
உடம்பை வளர்க்கும் உபயம் அறிந்தே
உடம்பை வளர்த்தேன் உயிர் வளர்த்தேனே
