Sanskrit language, definition and study. A-Z index of Cognitio.

The Sanskrit language is an official language of India belonging to the Indo-European family of languages. From it derive many modern languages of the country (first and most common among all Hindi). The term sams-kr-ta means, in the ancient language, “perfected”.  The role of this language in Indian culture is similar to that of Latin and ancient Greek in Europe. Many classical texts were written in Sanskrit, such as the Vedas. The first Sanskrit text is the Rig-veda. Most surviving texts have been composed in ancient and medieval India. In Vedic Sanskrit epic poems Mahābhārata and Rāmāyaṇa were written.

Quote by Alessandro Brizzi.

“According to many scholars natural language would not be suitable to relate correctly with the rigorous and mathematical logic of a computer, but there is at least one exception: Sanskrit. In the last twenty years many resources, time and funds have been used in the design of a clear representation of natural languages to make them accessible to computers. Natural language, that is the language spoken by human beings in daily life as opposed to computer programming languages, presents many ambiguities, especially of a semantic kind, and lends itself easily to misunderstandings, especially when it must be understood by a computer. Currently Sanskrit is a “dead language”, it is not spoken by any people but is used only by Hindus in the celebration of their religious ceremonies or in reading sacred texts.

What no one would have ever expected was to find that Sanskrit seems to be a real computer language. Already in July 1987, Forbes magazine hosted an article entitled “Sanskrit is the ideal language for computer software programming” but two years earlier a NASA researcher had come to even more surprising conclusions.

In ancient India the intention of identifying the Truth became so consuming that, in this process, they discovered perhaps the perfect instrument to satisfy such research that the world has ever known, the Sanskrit language … In addition to works of literary value, there was a long philosophical and grammatical tradition that has continued to exist with unchanged vigor until the present century. Among the accomplishments of these grammarians it can be assumed that they discovered a language, Sanskrit, which is identical not only in substance but in its form with the current work on artificial intelligence. This article demonstrates that a natural language can also serve as an artificial language, and many studies of artificial intelligence are nothing more than an unconscious reappropriation of much older studies. Starting from 500 BC several Indian grammarians, and especially the reformer Panini, had achieved a strict codification of the language from the oldest Vedic Sanskrit to become a useful tool for conveying logical concepts with extreme precision. From this reform, over time, a much more concise and “condensed” Sanskrit was created, rigorous, similar to a modern computer programming language. Already in its original form of Vedic Sanskrit, the reformed Sanskrit maintained those peculiarities that would have been introduced and renewed only in the VI century BC. The discovery of a connection between Sanskrit and Artificial Intelligence is of monumental importance. An ancient language at least 6,000 years seems to be in all respects an idiom so perfect as to allow interfacing with modern computer systems. This particularity might seem completely random but in reality it is shown to be the highest representation of that concept of perfection that constituted the animus of Indian thought. The uniqueness that the Sanskrit language possesses with respect to all the other known ones seems to be expressed also in the same etymology of the word, sams-kr-ta, which means ‘perfection’. It is quite natural to ask oneself who had ‘created‘ this language and what levels of ‘perfection’ had reached its creators in order to make it so unique and complete, peculiar and incomparable with respect to any other.

In this regard, a historical impact has emerged that emerged from recent archaeological studies. The Daily Mirror of 9 July 2012 published a staggering news. Studies have shown that the Kannada, a dialect spoken in South India, is the oldest language in the world and dates back at least 10,000 years ago, inexorably reconnecting with the legend of the three Sangam and the submerged continent of Kumari Kandam mentioned in my article “Vimana, definition and study.

In the face of these new evidences we observe how a new element seems to be added and imposes itself on that long list of anomalies and peculiarities that distinguish India and its ancient civilization.
