Hermeneutics, Holography and Indian Idealism

Quantity:

Hermeneutics, Holography and Indian Idealism is a cross-cultural and interdisciplinary analysis of the notion of projection. Advaita Vedanta informs us that mind is projected `out-there` into the world during perception. Is this notion of projection ridiculous and can it simply be ignored when studying Advaita texts, in particular Gaudapada`s Mandukya Karika? The answer to both questions is no.

First, the author steps outside of classical India in order to disclose a holographic, neuropsychological theory which entails the notion of projection and which makes it a conceivable option. Second, the author illustrates that ignoring the Advaita theory of perception has led to an interpretation of Gaudapada`s notion of maya, which in overlooking its phenomenological aspect, emphasizes the onotlogical and thus sees Gaudapada as an idealist.

It is argued that Gaudapada is a monist, but not an idealist; that his notion of maya and its relationship to mind should be interpreted in light of the theory of perception and not in light of an idealistic, metaphysical theory of creation.

Finally, this phenomenological interpretation of maya is then used to reflect upon the notion of projection which is found in the Advaita Vedanta theory of perception and in the holographic theory of brain-mind. As the hermeneutical circle is completed, the nature of the circle is illustrated.
