Thousands of years ago in ancient India, Yogis probed the atom with supernormal powers called siddhis. What they saw was subatomic particles as vortices of energy. That insight gave rise to maya the illusion of forms. Anticipating Einstein, Yogis realised everything is energy. There is no material substance underlying our world. They knew the bedrock of reality is mind and consciousness. That is endorsed today at the cutting edge of quantum physics. Applied to modern physics, the vortex shows how we are deluded by materialism. The particles and forces of nature are explained by the vortex of energy and physics becomes easy to understand for everybody. Predicting the most important scientific discovery of the late 20th century, The Vortex Theory could be the complete theory predicted by Stephen Hawking at the end of A Brief History of Time. The Vortex Theory provides a bridge between science and spirituality. At last we have a sound scientific theory to back belief in non material worlds. A new understanding of Life and Spirit could take us to fresh frontiers of discovery because it may be space is full of Life.
