As stated by ancients in respect of soul or ‘atma’, or the formless being, a ‘scientist’ today also apparently has come to know that energy cannot be created or destroyed, ie, it is ‘immortal’. One also learns today about the different forms of energy, heat, light, sound, electricity, and magnetism that can get transformed from one form to another by use of external tools. For example, telephone is known as the earliest tool devised by ‘scientists’ whereby sound energy gets converted into electricity at speaker’s end, and back to sound at the receiving end, irrespective of distance between the two thanks to the network provided (through satellites today, and earlier through wires and cables etc. In the ever changing world)...
However, ancient wise appear to have realised human form itself as a super tool, whereby ‘yogis’, ie, highly elevated souls utilising mantras or sound energy apparently could even teleport themselves from one location to another in no time, to distant ones even, which today cannot even be imagined as a possibility. However, the yogis attributed it to ‘kal’ or time, with immortal Shiva/ Mahakali or Mahalakshami realised as Mahakal etc (whatever names given to the super soul), or Bhootnath the controller of Time as we reckon it based on related movements of Sun (the source of energy) and earth (the abode of innumerable life forms, or a grand variety of instruments) that appear to be sustained for a certain duration according to how evolution from zero to infinity apparently took place in zero time but is being seen over expanded time, like ‘action replay’ as we are accustomed to watching actions performed in virtually no time as its reflection thanks to external tools...

As 'we', all animal forms, are residents of the planet Earth, who are sustained on the energy received from our Sun, 'we' are mainly concerned with these two, ie, Sun & Earth, which through intersting story about 'Brahma being seated on a lotus that evolved from Vishnu's navel' couold help in visualising that the ancient Hindus indicated these two 'heavenly bodies', where Vishnu points towards the centre of earth, while the physical material in the planet points towards it being called Shiva,,,which is also indicated through both Vishnu and Shiva having four hands each, and together depicted as eight-handed Durga (the eight cardinal directions involved, which were indicated linked to one planet, out of nine members of the solar system, as the controller of one particular direction, and called 'diggaj; and also depicted symbolically with the use of the Swastika)...
