We have traced the course of cell development and seen how the positive super-electric energy of the Centrosome is transformed into heat, and then into electric energy; and now we shall see that it is transformed into magnetic energy developing its two magnetic poles, the north and south seeking; and with this the Centrosome is divided into two equal halves, each with a magnetic pole of its own. The twin Centrosomes may be associated with the Nucleus or the cytoplasm; and so in the Vedas we have two pairs of twin gods, the two Asvin and the pair Dyaus and Prithvi or Heaven and Earth, each of whom, as we have explained, refers to the twofold character of Ether.
In connection with the cell we have observed that the Soma or electric Centrosome now comes out of the Nucleus (purifying sieve), and becomes magnetic, dividing into two halves. The nuclear membrane then disappears, the cell becomes one single mass, and the two Centrosomes are to be found at the two opposite poles of the cell. We shall see how far the Vedic description of Heaven and Earth and the two Asvins agrees with this character of the Centrosome.A RESUME: DYAUS AND PRTHVI OR HEAVEN AND EARTH:
|VEDIC GODS||EXPLANATION||THE CELL|
|Dyaus and Prthvi represent the twofold character of Ether.||The twofold character of Ether refers to magnetic energy with its north and south seeking poles. This means that we have now two Centrosomes, corresponding to the pair Heaven and Earth, in place of one, and they are magnetic. The one has a south-seeking and the other a north-seeking pole, corresponding to the Purushic and Prakrtic aspects of Ether.
In terms of Philosophy we now get to the senses of knowledge and action, associated with the twofold character of Ether.
|The Centrosome now divides into two halves, and each develops an opposite polarity, north-seeking and south-seeking. The nuclear membrane disappears, and the two Centrosomes are seen at the two polar ends of the cell.|
|They are parents of the worlds.||This means that the cell multiplies (worlds are born) under the action of the Centrosome when it becomes magnetic and divides into two. We see that this is actually what takes place.||The cell multiplies when the two Centrosomes become magnetic, and act on the cell at its two polar ends.|
TWO ASVINS: As we have explained, the idea of the two Asvins is similar to that of Heaven and Earth, completing what is lacking in them.
|VEDIC GODS||EXPLANATION||THE CELL|
|The Asvins are twins.||This means that the original Centrosome divides into two twin Centrosomes.||The Centrosome divides into two in the course of cell development.|
|They are associated with the Sea and their chariot travels in the Sea.||The Sea refers to the liquid part of the Nucleus; and this means that the two Centrosomes are associated with and act on the substance of the Nucleus.||The two Centrosomes act on the chromosomes, formed out of the colour taking substance of the Nucleus.|
|They are the very store of Soma juice.||Soma refers to the Centrosome as electric, while the Asvins refer to its magnetic character. This means that the electric energy of the Centrosome (Soma) is stored or preserved in its electro-magnetic or magnetic energy. In other words, the former is transformed into the latter.||The electric Centrosome becomes magnetic in the course of cell development.|
|They are sons of Dyaus.||Dyaus refers not only to the magnetic Centrosome, but also to the body of the cell charged with south-seeking magnetic energy, that is the cytoplasm before it becomes negatively super-electric. This means that the two Centrosomes, though associated with the Nucleus, are to be seen in the cytoplasm.||The two Centrosomes, though originally associated with the Nucleus, are to be found in the cytoplasm, for the nuclear membrane disappears and the cell becomes a single mass of matter.|
|They slay Vrtra.||This means that the magnetic Centrosomes break up the fibrillar substance of the Nucleus (Vrtra) into segments.||The aggregated threadlike mass of the Nucleus is broken into segments or chromosomes.|
|They are possessed of Maya.||Maya, as has been explained, is creative energy. This means that the magnetic Centrosomes are possessed of creative energy, which brings about the division of the cell. The idea is the same as in the case of Heaven and Earth as parents of the worlds.||It is the action of the magnetic Centrosomes that brings about the division of the cell.|
|They are the best physicians.||This means that Ether has the best medicinal properties. This has already been explained.|
|They wait on Vishnu.||Vishnu refers to the Centrosome characterised by positive super-electric energy. In terms of the cell this means that the magnetic Centrosomes become super-electro with a positive charge. This can happen only if the body of the cell, which is negatively super-electric, projects an induced positive super-electric charge, and it is absorbed by the magnetic Centrosomes.
From a purely scientific point of view this implies that magnetic energy can absorb positive super- electric energy, which is akin to heat at a high temperature, or electric energy with a high voltage.
|The science of Biology has yet to examine the ultimate character of the Centrosome and its energy after it becomes magnetic.|
We have gone thus far with our explanation of the gods of the Vedas in terms of the development of the cell. Starting with the cell in a state of rest, we have identified the fibrillar part of the Nucleus with Vrtra, and its fluid part, including the Nucleolus, with Varuna, and observed that the whole Nucleus as well as the cytoplasm, whose character is almost similar to that of the Nucleus, is charged with negative super-electric energy. We have explained that the Centrosome at this stage is charged with positive super-electric energy, and it is this that maintains the cell in a state of equilibrium. Then we have identified this Centrosome with Vishnu if it is found in the cytoplasm, and with Vayu if found in the nucleus.
The cell becomes active with the action of the Centrosome on the nucleus, as a result of which the Nucleolus, charged with negative super-electric energy, is attracted to and merged in the positively super-electric Centrosome, and the fibrillar part of the nucleus undergoes a change and is aggregated into a threadlike (serpent-like) coil. But as a result of this action of the Centrosome, its positive super-electric energy is transformed into heat. We have then identified this Centrosome, charged with heat, with Indra and Agni the former if it is found in the cytoplasm and the latter if found in the nucleus. The Centrosome continues its action on the nucleus, and brings about further changes in its fibrillar part, as a result of which its heat is transformed into electric energy. We have identified this electric Centrosome with Rudra and Soma, the former lying in the cytoplasm and the latter in the nucleus. It acts on the nucleus and its fibrillar part, and breaks it up into segments, called chromosomes. Then the nuclear membrane, which divides the nucleus from the cytoplasm, disappears, and the Centrosome, lying in the nucleus, comes out into the cytoplasm. As a result of this action its electric energy becomes magnetic, and it divides into two halves, with north and south seeking magnetic poles. We have identified the two halves of the magnetic Centrosome with Dyaus and Prithvi or Heaven and Earth, and the two Asvins the former associated more with the substance of the cytoplasm, and the latter with the substance of the nucleus.
