On a very high plane of yogic consciousness, Sri Aurobindo has discovered consciousness to be the ‘fundamental thing in existence’. It is the consciousness which arranges itself to come into the forms of ‘electron, atom, and material existence’. Such yogic discovery comes into the vision of the scientific mind when the scientists working on the Quantum Theory discover a wave which is not three-dimensional in nature, the ‘Probability Wave’ they term it. The present paper is an in-depth investigation of the phenomenon of the formation of the probability wave which comes to be the consequent effect of the change of thought in the mind of the experimenter revealing the truth that the transcendent Divine Consciousness is at the pinnacle of the existence and all the terrestrial phenomena are its manifestations.


Key words:  Electron, Consciousness, Probability Wave.
