"Knowledge is power."
Sir Francis Bacon
'The creation of a matrix organization can also be considered as management's response to a persistent or permanent demand for adaptation to environmental dynamics, instead of the response to episodic demands.'
Information and organization management theory mainly developed at Carnegie Mellon University
"I do not know what Al-Harauriyya ('Ibra-him'--break it down) is, but I heard the Prophet saying, "There will appear in this nation---- he did not say: From this nation ---- a group of people so pious apparently that you will consider your prayers inferior to their prayers, but they will recite the Quran, the teachings of which will not go beyond their throats and will go out of their religion as an arrow darts through the game, whereupon the archer may look at his arrow, its Nasl at its Risaf and its Fuqa to see whether it is blood-stained or not" (i.e. they will have not even a trace of Islam in them--in other words, you didn't see it coming and it penetrated clean).
"This is a Tool; learn how to use it."
One recent case, as reported by CNN, is that of British subject Gary McKinnon who is about to be extradited to face charges here in the US for allegedly hacking into our government computers, including Pentagon and NASA computers, in search of the furtive UFO information. It is reported that McKinnon suffers from Asperger’s Syndrome, which probably made his compulsion to find out all the more irresistible.
However this case settles out, I hope the US government goes easy on him. For one thing, it would appear he was driven by seeking knowledge for his own edification rather than any malice to disrupt or crash the computers. His activities probably exposed security gaps that needed shoring up in order to prevent someone with more sinister motives from accessing the information and causing some real damage down the line. He may have done us a favor and maybe we should hire him--maybe even pay for his services upon hire?
Some might say hoarding knowledge and information is tyranny disguised as prudence, and on the flip side there are others that hold a more liberal view. Information, knowledge, and their connection to who holds the reins of power is why it may not have been by random chance that the first word of the first Revelation in the Quran was the Injunction to Read (which also means Recite).
Surah 96 Al ‘alaq (That Which Clings)
"Read! In the name of your Lord who Created.
Created Man from ‘that which clings.’
Read! And your Lord is Most Generous.
Who has taught by the Pen (Writing Instrument),
Taught Man what he knew not."(96:1-5)
Area 51, (NxN Information Matrix)
(Derived from Surah Numbers containing a 51st verse that also open with disconnected letters, the first Chapter included to make it a square matrix and since it is the opening Chapter. Chapter 42 is appears twice since it has 2 sets of muqatia'at).
Determinant=-1440 (geometry= left-handed orientation in Euclidian space); Trace=148; Inverse Determinant=-0.001; Eigenvalues 142.098188, 12.087482, -6.186...
The Mariana Trench is located at 11◦ 5’ N 142◦ 12’ E; the first 2 Eigenvalues resolve to 12◦ 5’ N 142◦ 5’ E which is proximate to the Mariana Trench. The next Eigen vector proximate to Papua New Guinea. No creature can predict the future with any kind of certainty, least of all me, but judging by the numbers I wonder if there will be any major Seismic activity along the Trench in 2019 C.E.?
A crash course in Information Matrices (3 minutes) indicates that the higher the value of the Information Matrix the more likely the information is valuable, but I also take it to mean a calendar reference and we are in the year 1430 based on the Islamic calendar.
I could be wrong, but is there anyone following A Page In The Life that can double check my meandering Mystical Math?
--Here I am talking to myself--
'Why couldn't I be among the truly lucky ones and predict the winning lottery numbers or stock market direction instead of some far off event a decade from now?'
Oh, they might need that much time to plan for it?
'And if I am wrong?'
Well--so what?--it creates jobs for now.
Surah 51 Zaryati (The Scattering Winds)وَلَا تَجْعَلُوا مَعَ اللَّهِ إِلَهًا آخَرَ إِنِّي لَكُم مِّنْهُ نَذِيرٌ مُّبِينٌ 51:51
51:51 And do not ascribe divinity to any beside God; I am a plain Warner to you from Him.
ذَلِكَ الْكِتَابُ لاَ رَيْبَ فِيهِ هُدًى لِّلْمُتَّقِين2:2
2:2 This is a Scripture in which there is no doubt; a guidance for the Believers.
Surah 3 Al'Imran3:3 نَزَّلَ عَلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ بِالْحَقِّ مُصَدِّقاً لِّمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ وَأَنزَلَ التَّوْرَاةَ وَالإِنجِيلَ
3:3 He has revealed The Scripture to you in Truth; confirming what is in His hands; as He revealed the Torah and the Gospel
Surah 7 Al -A'Raf
7:7 We will impart to them Our knowledge; for never have We been absent[For those more technically and analytically evolved, investigate primes v. non-primes, evens, etc. if you are so inclined. That's why those who can't do-- teach, they never seem to have all the equipment or help they need at their disposal--a trade off from having to pack light. I never knew there was such a thing as an Information Matrix or even Information Geometry before today.]
