Ancient & scientific relevance

Ancient texts that refer to this

In the context of Advaita Vedanta Darshan, non-duality, or ""Advaita,"" asserts that the ultimate reality, Brahman, is indivisible and transcends all dualities, emphasizing the essential oneness of the self (Atman) with the supreme cosmic consciousness. It is a part of the Upanishads that are a continuation of the Vedic philosophy, written between 800 and 400 B.C. They elaborate on how the soul can be united with the ultimate truth through contemplation and mediation, as well as the doctrine of Karma— the cumulative effects of a persons’ actions.
