Unbound Intelligence Unbound Intelligence is the title of the book I recently finished reading. My friend Karavadi Raghava Rao presented this book to me which is authored by Dr. Rajeev Kurapati a medical doctor presently living in Greater Cincinnati area. Dr. Rajeev must be below the age of 40 years. Unbound Intelligence deals with the spirituality and personal spiritual experience of Dr. Rajeev himself. And that is what makes this book important. At the age of 31 during 2007 he “experienced a profound epiphany that can only be characterized as illuminating – as if a switch was turned on and the darkness suddenly disappeared” during a day while resting under a tree adjacent to a small lake near his home. He wrote,” When I took the time to gaze at the water, it dawned on me that so much life existed here that I had failed to notice until now. The fish, plants, ducks, birds, bees and insects performed a coordinated routine and I watched as the tight – knit ecosystem danced before my eyes”. “In this silence I felt that I was in deep conversation with every aspect of nature”, Rajeev wrote. He explains that at that moment he was a part of nature and the nature was a part of him and felt that he was liberated from the authority of time. But despite how powerful his experience is it was short lived. The experience of bliss at the lake initiated the spiritual journey/self inquiry of Dr. Rajeev. He observes: (1) the life force within us is same despite different exteriors which made him to be compassionate with his patients (2) Our acquired knowledge/intellect, performing religious rituals, knowledge about God can’t lead us to the bliss/ self realization/liberation (3) Knowing one’s own self is knowing God and God is not there anywhere outside (4) Self Realization may happen to individuals instantaneously/spontaneously irrespective of the religion of the individual, irrespective of the knowledge of the individual or through meditation (5) Love and compassion can only flow freely if our creativity is not restricted by class or culture. Dr. Rajeev writes that (1) Even the single cell has an intelligent “mind” (2) Each individual cell houses a capacity of consciousness, memory and reason (3) Each cell is a mobile unit capable of sustaining itself and also capable of cooperating [with other cells/living things] to form self containing mini eco system (4) We all started our lives as a single cell. Dr. Rajeev wonders “What or who imparts such intelligence into each living entity (cell?)”. But by going by Dr. Rajeev’s own observations one may conclude that the intelligence/consciousness/ information and programs within a cell are created by the cell itself and not by any external agency. “Godel’s Incompleteness Theorem” is not applicable to “self programmed systems”. I wish Dr. Rajeev will expand his ideas about self, consciousness, free will etc. and also will distinguish the “Mind of the Cell” and “Mind of the Brain” in his future studies. I recommend “Unbound Intelligence” to all those interested in spirituality. May see more details here: http://unboundintelligence.com/
