Finding the mathematical overlaps of the axiom of choice in Vipassana meditation


Author(s): Dr. Alka Marwaha

Abstract: Human beings perceive the world through their mind. Perception is followed by analysis, which is aided by wisdom. Within, Mathematics the Axiom of Choice is one such concept that forms a metaphysical bridge between the facets of nature and the mind, and the foundations of our physical existence. The Axiom of Choice deals with the continuum of unending infinities of set theory which find a parallel similarity with the continuous flow of overwhelming negativities of the mind like anger, ego, passion, hatred, fear etc. which if unchecked and allowed to multiply, can overpower the sense of rational and logical thinking. For the benefit of the suffering humanity, Gautama Buddha discovered the technique of Vipassana meditation, which facilitates the generation of the requisite wisdom or pragya, for purifying the mind from its intrinsic negativities. In this paper, using the exemplar of the Axiom of Choice, I propose some striking analogues between the concepts and methodology of mathematics and Vipassana and discover a deep and meaningful relation between these two disciplines.
