Abstract

Man has made giant strides in understanding the world around him. There was a time when even physical world was a mystery. We did not know what caused rain and wind, day and night, what caused disease and deaths. Everything that was unknown was explained as work of god. Rain? Rain god. Wind? Wind god, and so on. Science helped us bust most of the myths of the physical world, and god was no longer required to explain most of the physical phenomena. Even today, as before, we find the concept of god handy to explain all that is unknown.

Whereas the world of Matter or the Physical World has been more or less explained by physics and mathematics, the world of Human Mind still remains in the realm of the unknown, and hence in the realm of god. If a new language of Mathematics had to be discovered to explain most of the once-unknown phenomena of the physical world like rain and wind, will a new language 'Mentomatics' explain today's unknown mind phenomena?

Is it only a matter of time before the realm of the unknown becomes the realm of the known, and god will have no role to play in explaining what is unknown today?
