Anekanta: The Third Eye: [01.07] Co-Existence - Thesis And Anti-Thesis

Every object is connected to its opposite object. In the quest for anti-particles, scientists have used micro-instruments as tools. A micro-instrument was invented which could measure the subtle changes taking place in the 15th billion part of one second. Then the anti-particle was found.

Today it is more than established that without the anti-particle, the particle would have no existence. It is mandatory for both to exist.

The basic principle of anekanta is the acceptance of the existence of opposites, the acceptance of opposition. Anekanta is built on this. Anekanta says, do not look at truth from one angle only. If you look at truth from the perspective of existence, then look at it from the perspective of non-existence too. Acceptance and non-acceptance go side by side. One perspective alone will not do.

All our activities in life and society are built on the bricks of opposing principles. If these opposing bricks were not there, there would be no activity, no civilization. There are opposing desires, opposing aspirations and opposing conducts. If one man thinks in a certain way, another thinks in another way, an entirely opposite way. If one man looks at a certain proposition as gainful another may look at the same thing as a losing one. If one thinks of it as useful, another may think of it as totally useless. A single object invites many different kinds of thoughts. This is natural. There is nothing unnatural about this.
