einstein's theory and vegetation ecology

That matter is merely energy is a concept that is sadly lacking in more of the "macro" sciences such as vegetation community ecology. Theory: all vegetation communities are merely physical manifestations of the potential energy existing in that area over some given point in time. It's like the saying "can't see the forest from the trees"; well in this regard it would be more accurate to say "can't see the atom from the forest". It is my intention to measure this over the coming years and, if proven correct, the theory could have wide ramifications in areas such as forestry, conservation, evolution, biogeography and others.

There is, certainly, a knowledge of gupta vidya. There is, I am equally certain, no proofs. HPB used the word "proof" a lot in her writings, but she was talking/writing in a purely Laplacian world where everything can be proved to either exist or not exist, and all is black or white and where mathematics will solve all problems. That world no longer exists, as modern science has killed it. Today existence is described in all shades of grey, no real black or white anywhere. Laplacian views are dead. Proofs and facts are out, theories and probabilities are in, and we are all the better for it. Parabrahman is a theory, an assumption, a reification, and it can be experienced in degrees, but that is not "proof" (because some people experience little green men, and some experience pink elephants, etc so that experience per se is a pretty relative business), rather it is just another experience, albeit a nice one. The only one thing that we can "prove" is that we are always experiencing something - experience per se never ends. But WHAT we experience changes with the wind.
