"Vedic Creative Process" (SB 10.2.41)

San Diego – February 26, 1986 / (114)

Thompson discusses the creation of the universe from a Puranic perspective, which engages an organic approach. For example, the Srimad-Bhagavatam describes the cosmos unfolding from a seed (bija) encoded with information in a manner that parallels descriptions of biological form unfolding from an embryo encoded with DNA. Thompson suggests that correlations such of these could lend themselves to scientific minded inquiry.
