    A book relating Indra's Net to quantum mechanics and the nature of reality

    http://dgswilson.com/pdf/taophysics.pdf

    (the book includes Hinduism, Buddhism and Taosim .The Physics gets too difficult at times though)

    Dude, wow. You seem to be undergoing some sort of metamorphosis. You must also try Harikathamruthasara if you like such stuff.

    I don't think so (I just read it up in Wiki :p)

    It's related to the fact that "reality" is not Cartesian, where observer and event can be separated. This aspect of reality closely mirrors philosophies like Vedanta and (some schools of) Buddhism.

    Reality is not a perception, just like an artists uses a blank canvas to paint his idea we are useing our thought to interpret what reality is with our ideas but ideas are born out of knowledge. You understand things around you by the help of the knowledge that was put in you by society you live in and knowledge is memory. You perhaps need the artist to explain his modern art, but you don't need anybody's help to understand a flower. All perceptions are flawed only in a state of no perception can you sence the Universe as it is without judgment or conclusions.

    That is why even science is supersition and theories change every time.

    Hmm...like the double slit experiment.Where the observer imparts the particle behavior to the electron which otherwise behaves like a wave.

    Good thought out post.

    One of the reasons why two people with different levels of knowledge interpret the same event differently.
