Modern Physics and Kashmir Shaivism: The Higgs, Mass, Symmetry and Entropy

Authors: Sai Venkatesh Balasubramanian

After a brief review on the Higgs mechanism and the way it affects the perception of mass, the connection between mass and symmetry is visited. The computational universe model connecting quantum information theory with spacetime is then reviewed and the symmetry-mass connection is explored here as well. Based on these connections, a common thread linking entropy, symmetry, mass and information content is formulated. The key concepts of Kashmir Shaivism, mainly the Shuddha Vidyas are explored and the connection between these concepts and the common thread is elaborated upon. The remarkable similarity between the philosophical underpinnings between Kashmir Shaivism and Modern Physics reinforce the strong connections between the latter and Oriental Philosophy.
