His primary area of study was Rasavādam, considered to be a type of alchemy. He is said to have believed that all living beings are composed of five elements: water, fire, earth, air, Aether. Vegetables have only water, insects have water and fire, birds have water, fire, earth and air, and Humans, the top of the creation, have ether—the sense of discrimination are one. He theorized that Gurutva was responsible for the falling of objects on the Earth. So, it could be argued that he was the earliest proponents of the concept of gravity.
