Biography:

 

Dr. Gopi Krishna Vijaya is from Bangalore, India. He has completed his undergraduate physics training from the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (India), and his PhD in Physics (Solar Energy) from the University of Houston in 2014. He is currently engaged in the Postdoctoral Research of the Reciprocal System of Physics – a way to inculcate Goethean thought into modern physics – in Salt Lake City, USA.

 

His work spans several subjects and is mainly focused on their connection to spiritual science. Some samples of his work include:

 

Projective Geometry and its significance in Architecture (2-day workshop)

Technology and the Laws of Thought (on computers – published in the Waldorf Research Bulletin)

What is India? (On the Threefold nature of the Indian subcontinent, published online)

Dr. Gopi Krishna Vijaya

Living nature of Liberty (study of ideas behind Libertarianism)

Several papers in Physics with regard to Goethean Science, foundations of astronomy, calculus, and the Reciprocal System of physics theory. (available online)

In the natural scientific domain, he has been the author of 13 journal publications in experimental and theoretical semiconductor physics, presented his work in multiple international conferences (IEEEPVSC, SPIE etc.), served as a research mentor for a number of students.

Lectures:

History of Technology: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-LZa_xtTbw

Technology does not crop up from mere utility, but it is drawn out systematically from the human organism, step by step. A description of this relationship from Ancient Greece to modern day.

Computing Technology and Thinking: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbSNSCk-CUk

Discussion of the origin of computing, and its relationship to thought in general. Restrictions of Boolean algebra, and the relation between this algebra and mechanical/economic realities.

Grasping Technology through Thought:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvXBZo9ci6E

Rediscovering the thought process that is needed to handle technology. The different realms of human, animal, plant and mineral, and where the technological revolution fits in. Observing inner changes due to using technology that one needs to first recognize, then offset.

Moving Forward; In-reach:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTWL2_SK6Og

A path for further research of putting technology on a moral basis. Researchers who have worked in this field, and their contributions. References for material that need to be studied and pursued in order to take this forward. Internal exercises.

An Online Study Group

 

MysTech invites you to participate in this earnest weekly online study group.

 

Founded to cultivate the soul and soil for the development of “Mechanical Occultism” in the West, MysTech ponders Rudolf Steiner's indications such as the "welding together of Mankind with machines will be a great and important problem for the rest of the earth-evolution." (The Wrong and Right Use of Esoteric Knowledge, Lecture 3, Nov. 25, 1917).

 

We will use Zoom for video conferencing; for extended discussions and study we have a private forum on Facebook.

 

Initial Meeting: April 9th until June 18th, from 8:30 to 9:30 pm EST (NY time) every Monday; international members welcome.

Mystech Beginners Group

 

Currently (2006) SENSRI is focusing on measurements and experimental research on the activity of natural waters, and on developing educational programs in phenomenological science to be launched in 2007. These will include programs for adults and for high school students. Additionally, a graduate program is being developed.
