A major objective of this book is the promotion of scientific temper in society. The Scientific Method underscores the importance of a robust sense of skepticism when it comes to accepting evidence for any claim. And yet scientists are ever willing to accept and correct any errors in their theories; this ensures that self-correction is a part of how science progresses. Much of the science done so far has been based on reductionism. The so-called ‘complex systems’ are the next challenge for 21st-century science, and we have to go beyond reductionism for investigating them meaningfully. The most familiar and quintessential example of a ‘complex adaptive system’ is the human mindbody, with consciousness as one of its ‘emergent’ properties. The Scientific Method used so far values only empirical or objective information, and has no direct use for subjective or experiential information. In this book some suggestions are made for cautiously and tentatively relaxing some of the eight tenets of the Scientific Method so as to make science more inclusive in scope. Substantial space is devoted in the book to what it takes to achieve health and longevity of the human mindbody. Can you hope to live forever? The answer is ‘yes’, provided you can manage to stay alive and well for the next few decades, so as to be around when the fruits of biotechnology are already commonplace, and medical nanotechnology has come of age. Three approaches are discussed for meeting this goal, two of them from ‘Western’ medical science. It turns out that the Indian yogic way of life is the best of them all for achieving the goal.
