  • 1. JAIN PARAMANU & MODERN SCIENCE Dr. C. Devakumar, New Delhi
  • 2. 100 fundamental types of Paramanu possible Red Astringent 2 TOTAL 100 2 5 5 Black Sweet White acidic usna Ruksha (negative) Bad Yellow Sour sita Snigdha (positive) Good Blue Bitter Thermal Touch Electrical Charge Smell Colour Taste Gunas (Quantum Numbers?)
  • 3. Only 24 known till date
  • 4. Jain Paramanu and Particle Physics: Comparison
    • Among the fundamental particles, neutrinos, anti-neutrino and gauge bosons alone seem to come closer to Jaina anu's, though not really.
    • According to Jaina view, there are at least 100 fundamental particles. There is room for modern research to follow this excellent lead.
    • The five gunas (colour, taste, flavour, charge and thermal property) can be translated as quantum numbers analogous to modern quantum chemistry.
  • 5. Jain Paramanu and Particle Physics: Comparison
    • Snigdha and cool
    • Ruksha and hot.
    The snigdha (+ ve) and ruksha (-ve) charges are responsible for fusion and fission. In modern physics, gluons are assigned this role.
  • 6. 400 500 600 700 Wavelength / nm γ-rays Microwave Visible X-rays Ultra Violet Infrared Electromagnetic Spectrum Radio ʎ
  • 7. Jain Paramanu and Particle Physics: Lessons for the Scientists
    • The science of odour and taste is not that advanced and these two properties get varied responses from different organisms.
    • From the Jaina point of view, there is only logical query (0 or 1) and the test method must be sensitive to this categorisation
  • 8. Enantiomeric Excess (Optical Purity)
  • 9. SugarFree etc Sucralose is 600 times sweeter and does not get metabolized.
  • 10. Jain Paramanu and Particle Physics: Lessons for Scientists
    • Since anu’s are beyond sense-perception, they can not be detected by any instrument due to lack of sensitivity of this order.
    • Even quarks appear to be composite in the light of Jaina anu’s.
    • The mystery of dark matter is best revealed by the arrays of anu varganas and skandha varganas including vast valleys of voids in between. Some of these varganas and voids may not emit any radiation in the detectable range.
  • 11. Jain Paramanu and Particle Physics: Lessons for Scientists
    • Energy is also matter. This view is common to both the systems. According to Jainism, sound is a paryaya or a modification–effect of interaction of skandhas. Sound belongs to the family of skandha.
    • Is photon an anu or a cluster of anu's? This needs to be properly understood. In other words, what constitutes electromagnetic radiation?
  • 12. JAIN LAWS OF COMBINATIONS
    • Skandhas are formed by the processes of fusion, fission and both.
    • A skandha constituting infinite anu's can just occupy a space point .
    • Nanoscience and nanotechnology is the latest taking advantage of this development; Tipu Sultan Sword, Qutub iron Pillar are examples of nanopraticles.
    • The water filters made of nano-materials must be of interest to Jains
  • 13. Anu’s having equivalent charges (irrespective of sign) do not take part in fusion processes. guNa-sAmye sadrushAnAm (35) Anu’s having the least quantum of charge do not undergo fusion . Na jaghanya-guNAnAm (34) Snigdha and ruksha are the driving forces of bond formation. Snigdha-rukshatvAd bandhah (33) Visible objects are formed both by fission and fusion of infinite Anu’s Bheda-sanghAtAbhyam chAkshushah (28) Anu’s are formed by fission only . BhedAdaNuh (27) Skandhas are formed by the processes of fusion, fission and both. Bheda-sanghaatebhya utpadyante (26) Jain Law of Combinations Tatvartha Sutra 5 th Chapter
  • 14. A skandha constituting infinite Anu’s can just occupy a space point . Mutations and modifications in four characteristics in case of Anu’s and in all characteristics in case of skandhas always take place with the conservation of fundamental characteristics of Anu’s. The skandha with higher charge transforms the inferior partner leading to a compound . Badhe-adhikau pariNamikau cha (37) Fusion of particles differing in charges by two units is allowed between same as well as opposite signs . dvadhikAdi guNAnAm tu (36) Such Anu’s form arrays of anu-pairs (varganas) of definite distance as a single row or in a matrix form containing numerable/ innumerable or infinite Anu’s in all directions of space- time.
