From the Jacket:

This book synthesizes research in quantum physics, neuroscience, computers, and biology to present a general framework of our modern understanding of knowledge. The details of this architecture are best understood in terms of cognitive categories. The book describes the relation of this understanding to the emerging science of consciousness. Since consciousness has been a central preoccupation of Indic thought, this work has implications for a proper understanding of Indic literature.
