Man the Known and Man the Unknown

Swami Ranganathananda (Author)
Synopsis Dr. Alexis Carroll, a famous American doctor, towards the end of the last century wrote a book with this very title. He titled it Man the Unknown. Towards the end of the last century, this question had started agitating the scientific community: 'Is man only what we see about him, estimate about him with our sense organs? Has he a depth, a higher dimension? That is the subject Dr. Carroll handles in that great book. And since that time many scientists have tried to look into this subject and contribute their insights. Today the whole of neurology including the science of the brain is engaged in this wonderful task-investigating into the true nature of man through the study of this body and its various functions. Behind this study of physiology is anatomy. But the most important study is the nervous system and the brain. All over the world today, great neuro-surgeons and neurologists are engaged in this quest for man the unknown. Man the known is not a difficult subject for any scientist today. We have studied every square centimeter of this human body and the nerves, including the stuff of the brain, but what do all these reveal? Is there a profound dimension behind these dimensions which is yet to reveal to us, beyond our senses? This is the crucial subject investigated by our scientists today and many books are coming out. In one such study we find this beautiful suggestion arising from experiment, that behind the brain there is a subtle reality, which you call the 'mind'.
