Psychochemistry: the science of human interactions and relations
We use a Vedic framework to understand the entire gamut of psycho-processes at the most fundamental level that take place not only in each of us but also among us with reference to human relations and interactions. For this purpose, we explore here a philosophical atom-like (called the ‘patomic’) model of human Beings. This model, inspired from the philosophy of Srimad- Bhagvad-Gita, has bearing on some undeniable essences of life (EOLs) that we all carry till our death. As a matter of fact, these EOLs actively participate not only in establishing relations but also in interactions with other Beings and with the Nature as a whole. The concept of dressing of EOLs with the consciousness of an individual further adds new dimensions to these studies, particularly in fine-tuning the analysis of these psycho-chemical reactions. Here, instead of exchange of charged ions (as in atomic chemistry) or of colored ions (as in color-quark-chemistry) the exchange of ‘tanmātrās’ is considered. Attempts are also made to analyze the interactions taking place between two-, or among three- or many-human-Being systems within this framework. To this effect analogies from the theories of physics and chemistry are frequently borrowed wherever considered appropriate. These studies are expected to help in an all-round development of the personality of a person on the one hand and of a family or a society on the other, since the latter basically are the collective versions of individuals. Several examples are cited and representative cases are analyzed.
