While Satva Guna is prerequisite to gain knowledge in spiritual domain, what is its role in people who make profound scientific discoveries? Is that can we assume that such scientific discoveries happened when their Satva Guna was at its relative peak? Asking this question, because, we can easily note that major scientific discoveries currently happen in countries where satvic food consumption is least.
Satva Guna gets defined (in one way) as a state where mind can think clearly without prejudice or bias.
Major scientific discoveries happen out of hard work. Given this, is there any relationship between level of Satva Guna and being a hard worker?
Is nature of food intake alone a decisive factor for being dominated by Satva or Rajo or Tamo gunas?
Kindly forgive, if I have not framed my question clearly.
Will be grateful to have your kind insights on this topic.
