RSis of the Vedas - Part 4


How the Universe expanded in Cosmic Inflation epoch and came into existence is explained here (1). The inflation potential (dakSa) interacting with force-fields (panchajani) creates the particles. The kinetic energy of the particles of Universe, brings Universe to existence is called 'Sati'.

In the 'expanded space' (Brahma) rudras (force-fields) manifest one by one.   The force-fields are different ways in which energy is distributed with different properties. There are eleven force-fields and they are explained here (2).

'maruts' are 'quanta' of energy in different force-fields.There are 49 puStis (Fermions) and 14 Tustis (Bosons) making it totally 63 maruts (3).

All the Universe is originated by Rsis. Rsi is said to be derived from drSi which means to see. Rsi is interpreted as one who ‘sees’ or ‘observes’. Actually Rsi means one who makes it ‘visible’. Rishi makes it ‘visible’ to others. More than ‘See-ers’ themselves, Rishis are those who make it ‘visible’ to others (4).

What makes something visible..? It is the breaking of Symmetry. In a human society, those who break the existing symmetries, make new things visible, evolve the society in a new direction are called the Rsi (4).

Various Rsis or symmetry breaking events originate everything in the Universe. Marici is the Higgs field acquiring Vacuum Expectation Value. Kashyapa is the Electroweak symmetry breaking event. Bhrgu is quantum tunneling. Angiras is the appearance of massless quark condensates due to gluons. Kavi is the formation of neutral atoms (4).

Rsi Pulastya is excitation of Virtual and Real 'mesons' which are composite bosons. The excitation of virtual mesons is Agastya (potted in nucleus). The excitation of real mesons is Vizravas,which is streamed forth. These can be Charged Scalar, neutral Scalar, Charged Vector, neutral vector bosons which are the Gandharvas, YakSas, RakSas and Pisacas respectively. The glue-ball is the Kuvera and apsaras are the excitation caused by absorption of electromagnetic radiation. (5).

Rsi Vasistha is exchange of virtual gluons. Rsi Visva-mitra is the exchange of virtual photons. Rsi Agasthya is the exchange of virtual mesons.

Now let's talk about Rsi Atri.

SvarabhAnu - The three way oscillation of weak force

Svara-bhAnu are three way oscillating particles. Svara is three way oscillation. bhAnu are particles. svara-bhAnu are three way oscillation of particles.

The particles of weak force-field are massive particles. Hence the three different weak particles in the same weak force-field, have three different masses depending on the particle they are interacting with. The weak force-field produces positive, negative or neutrally charged, weak particles.

The three Svaras are  udAtta (High), anudAtta (low) and Svarita (medium). The energy of the weak force-field oscillate between high, low and medium masses.

SvarabhAnu's mAyA covers Indra

In the Hadron epoch, the energy of weak force-field is so high that it keeps interacting with protons and neutrons by weak interaction. This oscillates the protons to neutrons and neutrons to protons. This inhibits the formation of stable nucleons or even heavy or excited baryons, as the neutrinos keep interaction with baryons and mesons and oscillating them to other forms.

SvarabhAnu's mAya (oscillations, magic) clouds Indra (proton, nucleus formation) totally, as it makes the neutrinos interact with Protons (Indra).  SvarabhAna, the oscillating weak force cover the protons (Indra) totally by their weak interaction.

Atri - The neutrino decoupling that kindles nucleons

Atri is the neutrino decoupling process (6). As the Universe spacetime expands and cools down, the energy of weak interactions become lower, svarabhanu's mAya fades out and the neutrinos stop interacting with protons, due to weak interaction.

This decouples the neutrinos. Neutrinos leave and travel all over the space forming what is called Cosmic Neutrino Background.

The neutrino decoupling leads to lighter baryons, heavy baryons and excited states of baryons remaining in the Universe.

This de-coupling property is called 'anasUya'. This is translated as not being spiteful. In other words remaining de-coupled and not having murmurs/oscillations is being 'an-asUya'. Hence Atri is said to have married 'an-asUya'.

Once neutrinos leave, the oscillations between protons and neutrons stop.  This process rekindles the formation nucleons as now protons and nuetrons are unable to oscillate back.The proton and neutron ratio get fixed and that's what progresses the Universal matter evolution.

Thus Atri 'kindles' the Surya (nucleons) (8). This is explained in Rg Veda Mandala 5 hymn 40 (7).

Chandra atri - Predominance of Strong interaction

The neutrino decoupling process stops the interaction of neutrinos with baryons and thus the oscillation of baryons (from proton to neutron to protons) and production of electrons and neutrinos further.

This leads to baryons becoming the most predominant matter and thus strong interaction becoming the predominant interaction. 

Soma is the Strong interaction. Chandra is 'reflection' of light. Soma, the strong interaction is called Chandra when it becomes the binding energy in baryons and atomic nucleus. Most of the 'reflected' light in the Universe is because of light reflected by the QCD binding energy in baryons/atomic nucleus.

Soma or Chandra as son of Atri symbolizes this predominance of strong interaction after neutrino decoupling process.

Datta-atri - Benovolent weak interaction

The neutrino decoupling process also means the weak interaction becomes 'benovolent'. As the spacetime expands (brahma), weak interaction becomes weaker  such that it can no longer decay protons.  The weak interaction acts more slowly on massive particles in decaying them.

This weak force which become benovolent is called Datta-atri.  Datta means 'giving'.  Datta-atri is the weak interaction that gives rise to various particle forms.

datta-atri is called the 'Guru'. Guru means 'heavy'. The weak bosons are massive/heavy and hence weak interaction has become weak.

Weak interaction is about giving up/decay of  'mass' over a period. Hence Dattatreya also became examples of  Sannyasa or 'ascetic' way of live (giving up) and has spawned several philosophies.

This weak interaction becoming weak and 'benovolent' establishing the Universal matter forms, due to a combination of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva is called as Datta-Atri.

DurvAsa - Son of atri - The unstable states of particles

Before Ati, the neutrino decoupling process, particles could not sustain in excited states for long.

Post neutrino decoupling process  particles exist in excited states much longer, but cannot sustain forever. These excited particles that exist longer but cannot exist forever are called durvAsa.

durvAsa is that which cannot reside or live with. durvAsa is son of shiva because it is excited energy state.  The excited energy states are more subjected to weak interactions (hence durvAsa cannot be escape sudarshan chakra).

In the pre-higgs Universe, excited states of composite particles of quark (Indra) when faced with durvAsa (excitations of energy) cannot sustain it as they lose their excitation quickly.  Hence devas are advised to do samudra manthan and acquire interaction with higgs (mass).

This is the story of durvAsa cursing Indra to lose power and devas being advised to go for samudra manthan

In the post-higgs universe, due to quark's higgs field interaction, they acquire mass and have a stabler ground state. This leads to stable protons that are immortal. Thus devas acquie nectar (higgs field interaction).

Soma and Amrtam

'Immortality' is the property of matter forms to be overcome weak force decay. Formation of protons, atomic nucleus and elements that are not subjected to weak force decay is the acquiring of immortality of 'devas'.

Two forces play a great role in it. One is the  Strong interaction and other is the Higgs Interaction. Both these interactions cause the property of 'mass'.

Soma is the Strong Interaction. It manifests as 'binding energy' in baryons and atomic nucleus. Most of the reflection of light in the Universe is caused by this Soma, the binding energy of strong interaction. Hence Soma is called Chandra. This Soma is 'amrtam' in a way as it gives rise to immortal protons and atomic nucleus.

Samudra manthan, the churning of Ocean in which Vishnu resides is the process of Higgs field acquiring Vacuum Expectation Value. The nectar or amrtam that is got is the Higgs Interaction. During Samdura-Manthan, Suras (Quarks) drink the nectar (Higgs Interaction) and form various devas.  The mass caused by Higgs on Quarks and Electrons gives rise to protons, elements and more complex forms of matter.

Thus Soma (Strong interaction ) and Amrtam (Higgs Interaction) cause immortality in their own ways.

SvarabhAnu, the oscillating weak force also drink the 'nectar' or Higgs Interaction. But when svarabhAnu, the oscillating weak force becomes massive, it gets cut into two pieces, rAhu and Ketu.

This is because, when the weak force becomes massive it also is forced to interact with electromagnetic field. This splits the weak force into charged weak force and neutral weak force.

The 'split' of rAhu and ketu

As the weak force acquires mass and then 'charge', the weak force gets split into charged weak interactions and neutral weak interactions.

Thus the Svarabhanu splits into Charged Weak Interactions (involving W+ and W-) and Neutral Weak interactions (involving Z). The Charged weak interactions are called the Rahu and Neutral weak interactions are called the Ketu.

Most of the Universe is made of charged particles except the neutrinos. Thus Svarabhanu is also often used as a single name for ‘Rahu’. Since Rahu is a charged weak interaction, it is said to have great power, as it decays all charged particles.

The neutral neutrinos do not interact with any other particles and keep travelling across like a ‘ketu’. ‘Ketu’ means a ‘Comet’. The neutrinos are like the comets that keep moving. Hence the neutral weak interactions are called the Ketu.

Rahu (Charged weak interactions) and Ketu (neutral weak interactions) are always 180* apart..

rAhu kAlam - Time of vacillation /Oscillation

rAhu kAlam is the time 'impact of neutrinos' causing oscillation of neutrons to protons to neutrons in the early Universe. It's an unsteady state of universe. It is the time when svarabhAnu had cast the 'mAyA' on Indra (protons) and hidden the nucleo-synthesis process. Hence it is believed that whatever we do in rAhu kAlam results in oscillations and does not progress well.

But I have no idea, how rAhu kAlam gets related to the 'timings' of the week.

But any action we start at any time with lot of vacillations is rAhu kAlam. The vaccillations have to de-couple for the action to proceed
