Ganesh and Saraswatee
I had asked Dr, Abdul Salam of Pakistan when he stayed with me for 2 days in 1981 after getting Nobel prize. He thought about his Indian and Hindu heritage and stated that philosophical basis of his theory was Vedaant which was continuous filed theory, not discrete theory. I differed with him on the ground that Ved has to be Universal and it cannot exclude one branch of knowledge. in explanation I explained this concept. Then there were 2 types of computers - analog and digital. I gave example that analog is Saraswatee and digital is Ganesh. He stated that controller of Digital computer should be called mouse - which is now popular name probably on suggestion of Dr Salam.
Gan also means people and head of that institute is Ganesh (president). Mover of grand size of masses is small size mouse (Hazrat Moosaa of Koraan, Moses of Bible). As head of state he takes tax which is called Kar as Kar also means trunk of elephant through which it takes in water. Thus, Ganesh is called Karat in Taittireeya Sanhitaa Ganesh gayatree. Karat is also a title in Mahaaraashtra / Karnaatak - Were they tax collectors? Only visible objects are counted, so Ganapati Atharvaa Sheersh names him 'Pratyaksh Brahmaa' i.e. visible universe.
There are 3 infinities in Cantor's set theory - these have been called Anant, A-saankhyeya and A-prameya in Vishnu Sahastra Naam. The first two are Ganesh and Uchchhisht Ganapati. A-prameya is Saraswatee. Sankhyeya is countable infinity - equivalent to set of natural numbers. A-sankhyeya is not countable by that sequence - that is real numbers - irrational and transcendental numbers are A-prameya.
