Human beings and their dwellings
in directly evident or in mystic ways are affected by the motion
of the earth, and the microscopic as well as the macroscopic
effects of the forces of gravitation and electromagnetism. Some
points to be considered are;
geomagnetism are the two forces which have direct
influence on the animate and inanimate objects on this
though there are attempts
to incorporate short range force of repulsion in theory
of relativity, gravitation is known to be a long range
force of attraction and the magnetic effect involves
forces of attraction as well as repulsion.
interactions, as per Einstein’s theory of relativity, can
be interpreted in terms of space-time geometry.
space-time is womb of
hidden and manifest events.
man has no control over
time factor, but for harmonious relationship with the
cosmos, he can alter the space he lives in.
Vastushastra defines and shapes
spaces for designing dwellings that are in harmony with nature,
and are beneficial to the mind and body of the persons occupying
these houses. ‘Dik-kal’ (dik=direction, kal=time) is the theme of
Vastushastra. Space-time is its reflection in modern physics.
Science has been part and parcel of Vastushastra analysis and
