Many of his thoughts in the Yoga Sutras can be related to the ideas in quantum physics today. In sutra III.45, he stated:
"Thence results the manifestation of the powers, such as atomization et cetera, perfection of the body and indestructibility of its constituents." Specifically, animan pertains the miniaturization of the body. But it could also cover the siddhi to see parts of the body, such as the details of the retina in the eyes. This specific siddhi is the prime example that the universe is based on consciousness. Even the dimensions of space and time are based on consciousness. If this is so, the higher dimensions theorized in physics are not curbed and hidden within space-time. Rather, these dimensions are the various vibrations relating to the states of consciousness in the human experience. In other words, the common experiences of waking, sleeping, and dreaming are part of the higher vibrations of the space-time continuum. In effect, all of nature, even a rock, experiences a form of waking, sleeping and dreaming. Ultimately, however, only the human physiology can experience Unity Consciousness. As such, it's fascinating to contemplate that the human being is the culmination of creation in the universe.
