In atomic science they talk about the interconvertibility of matter and energy. This energy is our Shakti. This is what makes inert matter non-inert. So ShivaM, the immutable Brahman, has to be compared to the ‘inert matter’ of science; but the comparison is not right since, Brahman is consciousness so not jaDam (that which has no consciousness), whereas inert matter of science is jaDam.
Further, in the convertibility of matter into energy there is a difference for, when matter becomes energy, the matter that has become energy is now not there as matter. But in our philosophies, when energy shoots forth from ShivaM, the ShivaM still remains the same ShivaM.
