The philosophy of unity-in-difference: Meta-Reality (2000–2002)

MH: You started calling yourself Ram Roy Bhaskar again at about the time the meta-Reality books came out. This suggests that you were feeling a new level of being at home with the Indian side of yourself. We talked about this last time in the context of the experience of 1994, but can you bring us up to date in the context of meta-Reality? The discourse of the philosophy of metaReality is of course congruent in important respects with eastern philosophy, and you seem to have been immediately at home in it. Re-visiting it, it struck me as an extraordinary efflatus on a par with the creative multiplication of concepts in Dialectic (and at least as difficult to get on top of!). Yet it is almost as though you had always been in that element.
