Idol Workship and Ancient Indian Thought

In ancient Hindu thought, the Idol worship practice is a bit like learning & believing in Newtonian Physics, until graduating to Einsteinian Relativistic Physics that invalidates the absolutist world-view implied by the former. Ancient Hindu thought did not consider Idol worship in isolation. It was - but a tool - to achieve a greater goal.
If the Ancient Indian mind were a data center running thousands of jobs, Idol Worship would have been but, one daily batch job to charge-up the system to replenish drained resources. And this job has to run until the data center figures out a way to get connected to a perennial resource pool !!
