Very intelligent people in my family and in an academic sense many are gold medalists in their respective streams of study.-<quoted text>
I guess brains skip a generation in your family.
But, on the whole, my late parents did not encourage only narrow academic success but stressed on critical thinking/out of the box thinking and hands on approach.
My late dad was some kind of a genius in Math and had a razor sharp intelligence in dealing with share market forces and was mostly correct. He also had a great legal brain and would spend hours discussing law and constitution with friends pointing out the finer points and the loopholes.
My late mother had a great flair for English and French and had terrific taste where style and aesthetics are concerned.
I have inherited a lot from them but the Yoga has opened me up to newer ranges of consciousness that would not have been possible had I been living in the ordinary consciousness.
On account of the Yoga, I have had a direct glimpse into the laws of mind-matter and well most of what science says is on the surface or outright wrong.
No scientist can win a debate with me as somewhere during the debate they come up huge paradoxes and with them most things are mere surmises and not the outcome of higher logic nor the result of subject-object union.
I used to debate many scientists/profs till 3 years ago but now I rarely do it since I find it an infantile exercise and well crass materialists with their flawed and rigid ideas put me off and these days I am more interested in getting a deeper glimpse into the workings of the mind-matter matrix.
