Erwin Schrodinger’s and Niels Bohr’s opinions about the Upanishads

The Austrian Physicist Erwin Schrodinger and Danish physicist Niels Bohr were also admirers of the Upanishads. Schrodinger wrote,

“There is no kind of framework within which we can find consciousness in the plural; this is simply something we construct because of the temporal plurality of Individuals, but it is a false construction… The only solution to this conflict in so far as any is available to us at all lies in the ancient wisdom of the Upanishads”

Danish Physicist, Niels Bohr was also enthusiastic about the Upanishads. One of his famous quote is given below.

“I go into the Upanishads to ask questions.”
