n-d / (017)

Puranic concepts of time as “an active potency of the Supreme which manipulates the material energy,” can appear incompatible with Einstein's analysis of time as a geometric coordinate in the fabric of space. All the same, Thompson considers the rich complexity of the Puranic accounts, which include calculation of time based on atomic action, the motion of the stars and planets in terms of arc-seconds, and time dilation over cosmic distances.
