Aditya Hrdayam Part 35 - Quantum and Classical domains

Background Before I continue with Vishnu Sasharanama to complete our understanding of Vrsakapi, let me take a moment to describe my understanding till now in a jist. It is important to understand the next stanzas of VSN. Quantum and Classical domains Vedas are Cosmic science. There are two domains in Science. The Quantum domain of sub-atomic particles and Classical domain of atomic particles, chemical compounds and biological life. Indra (Baryons), Varuna (quark-antiquark pairs), Soma (Strong force mediated by gluons), Mitra (QGP), Apa (EM force mediated by photons), Yama (Weak force mediated by W Bosons), kAla (Higgs force mediated by Higgs Boson), Dhanada (property of Color Charge), Vrsakapi (Residual nuclear force), Vasu (nucleons)  et al belong to the Quantum domain of Sub-atomic particles. Purusha (Dark matter), Shiva (Energy), Shakti (Momentum), Vishnu/Madhu (Inertia), mAyA (rest-mass), Hiranyagarbha (spacetime),Brahma (Gravity) et al belong to the classical
