Srinivasa Ramanujan was a great genius, a great mathematician. He was born in 1887 in the province of Tamil Nadu in India.
He was fascinated by numbers.
“Numbers,” he said, “had personalities” for him.
What’s amazing about Ramanujan’s theories is that today they form the basis for astrophysics and also black hole studies as well as artificial intelligence.
Nobody was talking about any of these subjects in the 1920s.
One of the most fascinating aspects of Ramanujan as a mathematician, was the visionary element in his work.
He always insisted, and he was very adamant about this, that the mathematical discoveries he made came to him
in dreams and visions provided by the goddess Namagiri.
Namagiri, historically, was the consort of a god whose emblem was drops of blood and so sometimes, he said, the formulae, the calculations, the numbers were written in drops of blood.
He often talked about how, in these visions, he would see these fantastic, beautiful mathematical formulae unscrolling before him.
It’s interesting to note that many of the equations in the early notebooks of Great Genius Ramanujan were actually a particular kind of equation called “magical squares.”
Magical squares have an interesting function in Hinduism. They’re actually used to invoke a particular deity.
It’s understood that certain deities can be embodied
or represented in numbers, and that these magical squares
have the power to generate the presence of that deity.
When we look at the stories of these visionaries, especially mathematical visionaries who are guiding our advanced science and physics today, you see a common denominator.
They have dreams of otherworldly beings, divine beings, even extraterrestrials, and it appears that these otherworldly beings are guiding humanity into a new age
of super-advanced technology that will ultimately allow us
to interface with the cosmos.
