Recently, an article titled “Rig Veda to particle physics - Hymn on creation steers Indian’s hunt for Higgs boson” was published in a newspaper and some other media reports. Such statements like everything is in the Vedas have become fashionable by the illiterate in the VEDAS. We have come across many people claiming relationship between QM/QED/QCD etc and Vedanta. While QM/QED/QCD have many unexplained questions that can shake its very foundation, there is no book that explains the Vedas or the Vedanta even remotely near its true meaning that can be not only explained but also physically demonstrated. Yet, it is true that the Vedas contain all knowledge. Here we give one example:

The Vedas say: "Anavarne ime bhumih". It literally means, there are two types of mass - the bare mass that can be felt only through gravitational interaction and the radiative mass that can be felt through electromagnetic radiation. This is different from the concept of bare mass followed in QED or QFT. The question has puzzled scientists for over 80 years leading to some top scientists advocating the illegitimate "mathematical" process of mass renormalization using a counter-term. This process basically equates ∞ + x = ∞ + y. This implies x = y for any value of x and y, because mathematically any thing plus infinity is infinity. If two infinities are treated as equal to each other, then any number is equal to any other number. Thus, renormalization is not mathematics. This conundrum led to the postulate of the so-called higg's boson, which has not been found for more than 40 years and billions of dollars have been wasted in this process benefiting only a few "scientists" to lead a cozy life.

The problem first arose in classical physics while calculating the force produced on an electron by an applied electric or magnetic field. This force is called Lorentz force, which is well established. The formula: E = e2 / 2a works well. But the problem started when the same was sought to be derived from fundamental principles. The electron was thought to be a point particle or a sphere of radius zero. Thus, the denominator of the equation became zero leading to the position x/0. This was thought to be infinity. This led to all subsequent problems. The real answer to the conundrum lies in authentic mathematics of the Vedas.

All classical works on Vedic mathematics stipulate that any number divided by zero remains unchanged. We have elaborately discussed this in our book “Vaidic Theory of Numbers”. Here is a brief explanation. Number is a property of all perceivable substances by which we differentiate between similars. If there is no other similar, then it is one. Otherwise, it is many, which can be 2 ….. n depending upon the sequence of the times of perception. Zero is a substance that exists elsewhere and not here-now. Infinity is like one: without similars, but while the dimensions of one are fully perceptible, those for infinity are not perceptible.

Mathematics is accumulation and reduction of numbers of the same class, which describes the changes in the physical phenomena when the numbers of any of the parameters are changed. When the change of numbers is linear, it is called addition or subtraction. When they are non-linear, they are called multiplication or division. Since mathematics is possible only between numbers of the same class, non-linear means, one characteristic of the objects must be similar while another dissimilar. Suppose we find 10 bikes in a row and three rows of bikes, then rows of bikes is similar to both expressions. While one characteristic shows the number of bikes in a row, the other characteristic shows the number of rows of bikes. Thus, the result can be arrived linearly by adding all bikes or by multiplying the number of bikes in a row and the number of rows. In the case of addition or subtraction of zero bikes to a row of ten bikes, the numbers of bikes remain unchanged. In the case of multiplication by zero, either the number of bikes in a row or the number of rows vanishes from here-now. Hence the result of multiplication by zero is zero. But what happens when the number id divided by zero?

Contrary to modern science and mathematics, Vedic science says the number does not become infinity, but remains unchanged. In the above example, if we take away zero bikes from a row, the number of bikes in a row remains unchanged. Similarly, if we take away zero rows, the numbers of rows remain unchanged. Thus, the total result of 30 remains unchanged and does not become infinite. This formula can be seen the mathematical works of Lilavati, Narada and others, though the translations are wrong. If we apply the above formula to the Lorentz formula: E = e2 / 2a for a point particle, the number does not become infinite, but a finite quantity. Thus, all wrong chase of the last 80 years can be corrected and further wastage of money in the name of scientific research avoided. Regarding the question: what is mass, we will discuss separately.
