Anekanta: The Third Eye: [04.14] Third Eye 1 - Sound Is Science's Great Gain

In the Jain agamas there is the example of a bell.

It rings in one place. Influenced by its sound vibrations, thousands of bells far away begin ringing. For innumerable yojanas (1 yojana = about 12 miles) this happened. People said it was imaginary. But when science proved that fast movement of sound waves were responsible for the event, this truth was established. Today it is a significant finding of the science of sound.

Man will not be able to find truth until he moves towards the subtle modes of life. Until the vision of anekanta develops, movement in that direction is not possible.
