Robotics, Singularity, and the Evolutionary vision of Sri Aurobindo

Politics is not all about Current affairs or history. Searching for the best ideology and internalising its principles needs long practice.
Slow transformation of erstwhile fierce nationalists into tolerant of corruption & foul means is so pathetic. Long live Conspiracy of silence!
Instead of wasting time on Emergency, it's better to concentrate on  Robotics, Singularity, and the Evolutionary vision of Sri Aurobindo.
Political mythology is as injurious as religious mythology in keeping Indians under snare. Sri Aurobindo encourages to think of the future.
@cvoter Zeitgeist doesn't care for history or continuity. Evolutionary dialectic is too erratic to be defined by past narratives.
Vast diversity in India doesn't allow foreseeing a technological future but the kind of Evolution Sri Aurobindo talks about is worth knowing.
Public intellectuals owe an explanation to the nation as to why they have been so niggardly in writing on Sri Aurobindo's political thought.
When it comes to Sri Aurobindo, both Leftists and RW commentators are equally guilty of not only neglecting but also ostracizing his vision.
A Twitter celebrity once characterised my tweets on Sri Aurobindo as spam & threatened to block me. So much abhorrence towards Sri Aurobindo.
Understanding clearly the ideological moorings of RSS & BJP vis-à-vis Sri Aurobindo's political philosophy is crucial
@shyamanuja I'd prefer my Odia identity not to be clouded by J-cult despite it being promoted by the media disproportionately in recent years.
@shyamanuja One can outgrow social aspect of religion.
Sri Aurobindo: The Chariot of Jagannath
@shyamanuja In the Bengali original he must be referring to the then environment in Bengal but can mean any collectivity (even, Corporation)
@shyamanuja Corporates are becoming still more challenging by digital empires like Google and FB. Still, principles of Evolution does apply.
@shyamanuja [many humans fear change and long for the very stable and static past. It is a delusion fueled by fear..]
[To truly have real change, we have to come together and work as a team]
[The Lal-Bal-Pal trio have been disposed of in two sentences without even a mention of Sri Aurobindo, Mukherji said,]
[Sri Aurobindo and Vivekananda provided the foundation before the Marxists. It is time to bring back their influence.
[Thus, the book features not just Sri Aurobindo and Mirra Alfassa or The Mother but also James Cousins, Paul Richard]
[The dangers of dynastic politics:
The Emergency’s enduring cult of the supreme politician] 
[mischaracterizations of leftists who deliberately falsify SA works to set up their straw man thesis of communalism]
[Sri Aurobindo said his purpose in writing ARYA was to laydown the metaphysical & religious basis for a new movement]
The Clasp of Civilizations, Singularity and Socialism
