ABOUT THE LECTURE

Despite its understanding of the minute details of cerebral mechanisms as a result of decades of research and vast expenditure, modern science still seems completely at a loss to pronounce on or explain the unexpected onset of genius – other than by positing an accidental concurrence of genes that happened to produce just the right kind of physical and chemical processes and neural networks in the brain.
The works of geniuses are utterly unique. Yet, we can discern significant similarities in their upbringing, lives, character, outlook, lifestyle, and manner of working. Accordingly, in the first part of this lecture we trace the common elements and highest common factor in the very different personal lives of Newton and Ramanujan. We then outline their individual trajectories – two blazing comets that lit up the mathematical firmament. Finally, we show how the occult sciences alone can illuminate and enlarge our field of enquiry and deepen our understanding into how and why such phenomena occur. We attempt to elucidate the mind process whereby the genius attains to his insights by something like direct contact with the unknown sources that surround us and thus perceive the spiritual dynamic that conspires to produce illimitable genius – that rare individual whose example proves the flowering of the latent powers in humanity whose distant future growth and splendour has no limit.
