Prabhupāda: Brahma-jijñāsā. That is beginning of knowledge, what is the Absolute Truth.
Svarūpa Dāmodara: That is the research topic.
Prabhupāda: Hmm. Now this subject matter should be taken up seriously in the human form of life. That is the suggestion. Atha. . . atha, ataḥ, now you have got this human form of life, therefore you discuss about the Absolute Truth. Paraṁ satyaṁ dhīmahi. Yes?
Svarūpa Dāmodara: Next one is, next chapter is "Matter Originates from Life." That Mādhava dāsa Prabhu's. And on the eleventh chapter there will be Rūpānuga Maharaj, Prabhu's. . .
Prabhupāda: Matter is a manifestation of life's energy. We can daily experience: the matter, hair, is growing. Cut, again growing. Why? Because there is life. Dead body, hair never grows. Is it not?
Mādhava: Well, the scientists will say it's just recombination of matter.
Prabhupāda: Whatever it may be, when there is body dead, no hair grows.
Svarūpa Dāmodara: That's a nice example. (laughter)
Prabhupāda: They can use some bombastic word, but they, who is layman, we see this is the position. And you do not know how it is being done, but the energy is there in you. That is called acintya-śakti, inconceivable energy. That is there. Now you shave every morning, and next morning, again millions of hairs. You do not know how it is being happened. But it is happening, and this is called acintya-śakti. From Kṛṣṇa such big, big things are coming out. Even Kṛṣṇa may not know, but Kṛṣṇa has got the inconceivable energy by which it is coming. The same example.
Devotee: People will speculate so many theories as to why the hairs are coming out, but then after some time they will see that theory is wrong; they'll have to present a new one.
Prabhupāda: Yes, that is their rascaldom.
Devotee: And until they come to understand that Kṛṣṇa is pushing it, then they will never understand what's actually causing everything to grow.
Dr. Wolf-Rottkay: False ego.
Dr. Wolf-Rottkay: False ego and the hunt for prestige.
Prabhupāda: That's it. So give something.
Svarūpa Dāmodara: The last but one is called, entitled, "Intellectual Analagam(?), Psycho-Social Implications." That will be Rūpānuga. . .
Prabhupāda: What is it?
Rūpānuga: It was their idea. In a book like this there has to be some social conclusion as to the effects of such atheistic theories.
Prabhupāda: Yes, the people are being misguided. That we want to stop. They have got this human form of body, that is an opportunity to understand himself and God and act accordingly. Now they are being misled. It is a social disservice. Cheating. In the name of scientist, they are exploiting this innocent person, taking their money and spoiling it without any good result.
