The Scientia Prima, the First Science, the Vedanta Sastra !

>
The First Science, the Scientia Prima

All sciences study Being.

Physics is the Science of Being as Matter.
Mathematics is the Science of Being as Numbers.
Chemistry is the Science of Being as Qualities
Biology is the Science of Being as Life.

But the Scientia Prima, the First Science, Vedanta Sastra, is the Science of Being as Being, in its pure state. And in its pure state, it is as Absolute Being !

And what is the Absolute ? It is one immutably homogenous Infinite.

The Universe has no center or circumference. It would have had a circumference, if it had a center. Since the Universe has no center or circumference, and since it could not be enclosed in any center or circumference, it would be unintelligible, without Being, without the Absolute, as the Center and the Circumference.

The Philosophia Prima, the First Philosophy, was the name given by Locke to Ontology and later by Hobbes to Metaphysics !

In our terminology, this is the First Science, the Scientia Prima, the Adi Sastra, the Prathama Sastra, the Vedanta Sastra !
