Email, the system I invented in 1978, while a 14-year-old boy, to enable collaboration and communication among office workers at a small medical college in Newark, NJ, has now become the center of many controversies. If we do not act, our freedom, which has already been compromised, will suffer even more greatly, in a future where Have’s and Have Not’s will be defined by the level of security they have to their email communications. Dr. V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai
The book is based on a scientific and systems theoretic understanding. Dr. V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai’s work at MIT and as a part of his Fulbright research on Siddha and Systems Biology resulted in recognizing the correlation between the lingua franca used in traditional systems of medicine and modern control systems engineering.

We at IJSSE are honored to bring this incredible work to the world of systems and medicine. This work demonstrates the power of a systems engineering approach to reveal the invariance of foundational engineering principles, across both cultural and temporal scales spanning 5,000 years.
This discovery is not based on a reductionist medical approach but on an engineering systems approach, and conclusively ends the age-old debate on whether Ayurveda and Siddha have scientific integrity. This ‘Rosetta Stone’ provides a much-needed gateway across east and west, ancient and modern, science and tradition, to illuminate western scientists and the modern world to the scientific foundation of Siddha and Ayurveda.
This is a seminal paper that unequivocally proves the scientific basis of Ayurveda and Siddha. The research demonstrates that the ancient scientists of India, over 5,000 years ago, independent of the Western world, discovered principles of systems science, the underpinnings of Ayurveda and Siddha as well as the underpinnings of modern systems engineering principles (which were defined by the West in the 1930s) that govern modern technologies from the thermostat to the spacecraft, as well as the functioning of the human body.
With great clarity, this paper reveals a direct one-to-one correlation between the terminology used by the ancient Rishis and Sages of India to describe Ayurveda and Siddha and the principles of western systems science. This discovery demonstrates the true genius of Ayurveda and Siddha.
