Meanwhile, in the East, nonduality has prevailed. While science is generally seen in opposition to nonduality, this book sets out to prove the compatibility of the scientifi c outlook and the spiritual nonduality of India by constructing a mathematical model of cosmic consciousness. The ideas and their history are presented non technically in Part One,
while the full mathematical details are presented in Part Two.
