Epiphany, Apophenia, or Just Plain Apathy

About those flying lessons...


Surah 67 Al.Mulk (The Dominion)
وَلَقَدْ كَذَّبَ الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ فَكَيْفَ كَانَ نَكِيرِ 67:18
67:18 ...just as their predecessors rejected/belied (My Signs), then how terrible My Rejection (of them)!

{This is to confirm that I never ever said I was Allah, okay? It's them that keep saying it and then they badger me by calling me 'Allahu Akbar" because that's what I say each time they bug me...and they still test me in the loo, too!--My Big little Brothers, that's Who! And they got My Son, too!}

Apophenia, false connections, initially associated with early onset of schizophrenia wherein delusional thinking is mistaken for Revelation. The basic difference being that Revelation provides True insight into the nature of Reality and its inter-connectivity.

The word grew to describe a person's seeking or seeing faces in random images and even hearing messages in what is essentially 'white noise.'

Epiphany, essentially means the sudden realization of a great Truth, broadly used to mean a religious encounter (theophany).

Synchronicity, the experience of 2 or more events, causally unrelated or likely to occur together by chance but understood to be occurring together in a meaningful manner.

Mostly Coincidence, but We Can 'Handle' It
Appeared in the February 5, 2013 Los Angeles Times


Patternicity, a term coined in the 2008 book by Michael Shermer, The Believing Brain, to mean "the tendency to find meaningful patterns in meaningless noise." 

Meaningful associations, but not necessarily the Truth of the matter.

Which necessitates the need for testing 'What Is True?' to avoid reaching meaningless conclusions, or, making  mistakes.

Error--The negation of the null hypothesis, the general or default position of a statement that can be proven false. 

Type I Error-- A False Positive. Asserting something or a relationship exists when it doesn't. 

Type II Error- A False Negative or An Error of the Second Kind. Failure to assert what is present, a miss.

At first glance, patternicity sounds a lot like the manifestation of 'the beast' mentioned in Quran Sign 27:82.

Surah 27 An.Naml (Ants)
وَإِذَا وَقَعَ الْقَوْلُ عَلَيْهِمْ
أَخْرَجْنَا لَهُمْ دَابَّةً مِّنَ الْأَرْضِ
 تُكَلِّمُهُمْ
أَنَّ النَّاسَ كَانُوا بِآيَاتِنَا لَا يُوقِنُونَ (27:82

27:82  And once Our Promise Befalls them
We Bring Out/Produce for them dabat (  دَابَّةً  beast/ride/reptile/creeping thing/excursion/travel...) from the Earth
Indeed, people (communities) are ever uncertain/unconvinced of Our Signs.

A great deal of speculation goes into trying to resolve what exactly is the nature of 'the beast' mentioned in Sign 27:82, when the more meaningful discovery would be what exactly is the nature of 'the human being'?

There is the general assumption that since the human being was God's last 'creature' to be created, the human is the top-level vehicle for conceptualization and action that we as humans are typically born into.  And, are taught to develop our knowledge based on a common experience of our environment and other communities' around us.

That's why there is an emphasis on learning and accumulating knowledge, the ultimate goal to perfect one's ability to Reason. Probably in the hopes to develop or help the human brain evolve; the one organ in the body that never reaches its full capacity, even into adulthood.

Over a lifetime of use, most people do not ever utilize more than about 10% of the actual brain capacity available to them.

Is God, Our Creator, wasteful? How's that for a rhetorical question?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I'll answer it, anyway:
Surah 47 Muhammad (The Praiseworthy (pbuh)) 
فَلَا تَهِنُوا وَتَدْعُوا إِلَى السَّلْمِ وَأَنتُمُ الْأَعْلَوْنَ وَاللَّهُ مَعَكُمْ وَلَن يَتِرَكُمْ أَعْمَالَكُمْ (47:35 
47:35) So do not falter and cry out for peace when have an advantage, and God is with you, and He will not waste your deeds.
Surah 52 Tur (The Tur, Mt. Sinai)
وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَاتَّبَعَتْهُمْ
ذُرِّيَّتُهُم بِإِيمَانٍ 
أَلْحَقْنَا بِهِمْ ذُرِّيَّتَهُمْ وَمَا أَلَتْنَاهُم مِّنْ عَمَلِهِم مِّن شَيْءٍ 
كُلُّ امْرِئٍ بِمَا كَسَبَ رَهِينٌ (52:21  
52:21) And those who believe and whose seed (families, offspring) follow them in Faith, We reunite them with their offspring (children, families): And We Will never let go to waste any of their works: Each individual will be held in pledge for their deeds. 
See, the grave is not an escape hatch! 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Which seems to indicate that this feature of the human being is the one intended to propel its evolution--room at the top to grow, shall we say.

Evidence that the human's capacity to hone their ability to Reason is not only scattered throughout the Quran, especially at the culmination of some Surahs, where a final appeal is made to the 3'ulama ( the learned people of a given community ) to Use Their Reason, but throughout World Religions and other Abrahamic Faith Scriptures.

Just as in some Biblical passages, for example:

Proverbs 11:9
With their mouths the godless destroy their neighbors, but through knowledge the righteous escape.
Quran Surah 38 Saud 
38:46 إِنَّا أَخْلَصْنَاهُم بِخَالِصَةٍ ذِكْرَى الدَّار  
38:46 Indeed, We purified them by means of a thought most pure: the Remembrance of the Life to Come. 
{For Clarification Sign 38:46 is mentioned here since it alludes to the fact that such people (the Righteous) are living their own past lives while they have complete memory of a life they already lived, right alongside others' who think they are their contemporaries. 
How's that for time travel! 
Surah 25 Al.Furqahn (The Criterion)
وَما أَرْسَلْنَا قَبْلَكَ مِنَ الْمُرْسَلِينَ إِلَّا إِنَّهُمْ لَيَأْكُلُونَ الطَّعَامَ وَيَمْشُونَ فِي الْأَسْوَاقِ
وَجَعَلْنَا بَعْضَكُمْ لِبَعْضٍ فِتْنَةً
أَتَصْبِرُونَ
وَكَانَ رَبُّكَ بَصِيرًا 25:20   
25:20 And We never sent as Our message-bearers any but those who indeed ate food, like other human beings, mortals, and went about in the market places: in this manner We cause you  to be a means of testing one another.  Are you able to endure (this test) with patience? For your Sustainer is Truly All-Seeing! }
Proverbs 12:1
Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but whoever hates correction is stupid.

Isaiah 11:9
They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain, for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.


Surah 62 Al.Jumu3'a (The Gathering, Friday, The Congregation) 
هُوَ الَّذِي بَعَثَ فِي الْأُمِّيِّينَ رَسُولًا مِّنْهُمْ 
يَتْلُو عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِهِ وَيُزَكِّيهِمْ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ 
وَإِن كَانُوا مِن قَبْلُ لَفِي ضَلَالٍ مُّبِينٍ  62:2        
62:2  He it is Who Sent among the unlettered ones (those not yet given Scripture) a messenger from amongst them, to recite to them His Revelations and to make them develop (evolve), and to teach them the Scripture and Judgment/Wisdom; indeed, prior to which they were in manifest error (wrongful).

Luke 11:52
“Woe to you experts in the law, because you have taken away the key to knowledge. You yourselves have not entered, and you have hindered those who were entering.”

Surah 2 The Calf  
الَّذِينَ آتَيْنَاهُمُ الْكِتَابَ يَعْرِفُونَهُ كَمَا يَعْرِفُونَ أَبْنَاءهُمْ 
وَإِنَّ فَرِيقاً مِّنْهُمْ لَيَكْتُمُونَ الْحَقَّ وَهُمْ يَعْلَمُونَ  2:146  
2:146 Those to whom We Entrusted the Scripture know (understand) it like they know their own sons (children), yet a faction of them deliberately sequester/hide the Truth. 

The fact that learning is embedded in the very nature of the human experience is also embedded in their language. Just considering the etymology for words pertaining to learning, knowing and knowledge, gives a sense of not only the discipline that should be engendered in human nature, but also establishes ties to the familial or cultural reasons that drive it, such as 'following', 'cultivating', 'teaching', 'lore', 'honor', 'speaking' (declaration) and even 'wedlock', or 'marriage'.

Nothing is missed here, since the word 'Love' is essentially party to all of this learning as the inference from 'acknowledge' implies 'mutual respect'--words that are pseudonyms for 'Love'.

The New Testament puts it this way:

John 1:1
In the Beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God (Allah).

learn (v.) 
Old English leornian "to get knowledge, be cultivated, study, read, think about," from Proto-Germanic *liznojan (cf. Old Frisian lernia, Middle Dutch leeren, D utch leren, Old High German lernen, German lernen "to learn," Gothic lais "I know"), with a base sense of "to follow or find the track," from PIE *leis- "track." Related to German Gleis "track," and to Old English læst "sole of the foot" (see last (n.)).
... from Old English læran "to teach" (cf. Dutch leren, German lehren "to teach," literally "to make known;" see lore), and is preserved in pp. adjective learned "having knowledge gained by study."

Note: The connection between learning and 'travel by foot', as in pedestrian notions is a concept that is reinforced in the Quran in several verses: 3:137_6:11_9:02_16:36_27:69_29:20, and 30:42 are among the more readily accessible to this understanding of learning by travel.


know (v.) 
Old English cnawan (class VII strong verb; past tense cneow, pp. cnawen), "to know, perceive; acknowledge, declare," from Proto-Germanic *knew- (cf. Old High German bi-chnaan, ir-chnaan "to know"), from PIE root *gno- "to know" (cf. Old Persian xšnasatiy "he shall know;" Old Church Slavonic znati, Russian znat "to know;" Latin gnoscere; Greek *gno-, as in gignoskein; Sanskrit jna- "know"...e.g. German wissen, kennen, erkennen and in part können; French connaître, savoir; Latin novisse, cognoscere; Old Church Slavonic znaja, vemi). The Anglo-Saxons used two distinct words for this, witan (see wit) and cnawan.

Meaning "to have sexual intercourse with" is attested from c.1200, from the Old Testament. To not know one's ass from one's elbow is from 1930. To know better "to have learned from experience" is from 1704. You know as a parenthetical filler is from 1712, but it has roots in 14c. To know too much (to be allowed to live, escape, etc.)

knowledge (n.) 
early 12c., cnawlece "acknowledgment of a superior, honor, worship;" for first element see know. Second element obscure, perhaps from Scandinavian and cognate with the -lock "action, process," found in wedlock. Meaning "capacity for knowing, understanding; familiarity; fact of knowing" is late 14c. Sense of "an organized body of facts or teachings" (aka Knowledge Object--See? I cleaned up the F.U. obcenity--That aughta teach 'em!) is from c.1400, as is that of "sexual intercourse." Also a verb in Middle English, knoulechen "acknowledge" (c.1200), later "find out about; recognize," and "to have sexual intercourse with" {Not because I am 'horny', but because I finally get 'the wife' reference!}

wedlock (n.)
Old English wedlac "pledge-giving, marriage vow,"(this implies both parties should be in on it!)  from wed + -lac, noun suffix meaning "actions or proceedings, practice," attested in about a dozen Old English compounds (cf. feohtlac "warfare"), but this is the only surviving example. Suffix altered by folk etymology through association with lock (n.1). Meaning "condition of being married" ...

And the Quran adds this much more about that basic Word of God; the How and Why It Propagates:

Surah 53 An.Najm (The Unfolding, Revelation, The Star)
وَالنَّجْمِ إِذَا هَوَى (53:1
53:1 By The Revelation As It Propagates...

The assertion in Surah 53 is that not only is God's Word propagated during the period of its first Revelation to a Prophet or Messenger, but that it propagates throughout the multitudes of Creation (the manifold levels or planes of existence) for all Time.

Surah 17 Al.Isra (The Ascension) 
وَلَقَدْ صَرَّفْنَا لِلنَّاسِ فِي هَـذَا الْقُرْآنِ مِن كُلِّ مَثَلٍ
 فَأَبَى أَكْثَرُ النَّاسِ إِلاَّ كُفُورًا 17:89
17:89 Most certainly, We Provided for humanity in this Quran multi-faceted lessons,yet, most people prefer to blaspheme (dispute its validity)

These levels, or multiple universes, on the human level at least, may take the following forms or echelons:
From the Top Level--God's Word:
  • Scripture
  • Angels, Messengers
  • People, and other Communities of Living Things, ie., Jinn, Fauna, Flora...
  • The Actions and Behaviors of Such Communities
  • The Environment: 
    • weather, 
    • signage,  
      • 51:20 وَفِي الْأَرْضِ آيَاتٌ لِّلْمُوقِنِينَ 
51:20 And in/on the Earth are Signs for those 'endowed with inner certainty ;  
    • the media, such as television, books, papers, blogs, radio, etc.
  • Information from Sources that are often overlooked or ignored when it comes to being authentic augers, such as:
    • Dreaming, ie., 
    • Children
      • What they say
      • What they do
      • How they interact in the World We Think We're In 

Hence, the plea from Abraham to God that the Message be Affirmed or Refreshed  via His progeny from Time to Time.

Surah 2 Al.Baqara (The Calf)
كَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا فِيكُمْ رَسُولاً مِّنكُمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْكُمْ آيَاتِنَا
 وَيُزَكِّيكُمْ وَيُعَلِّمُكُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ
وَيُعَلِّمُكُم مَّا لَمْ تَكُونُواْ تَعْلَمُونَ2:151      
2:151 Even as We Sent within you (your midst) a messenger of you (one of your own people), to recite to you Our Revelations (Signs) and cause you to develop/evolve thereby, and to teach you the Scripture and Wisdom/Judgment, 
and to teach you that which you did not know.

Surah 3 Al.3'mran (The 3'mran)
وَكَيْفَ تَكْفُرُونَ وَأَنتُمْ تُتْلَى عَلَيْكُمْ آيَاتُ اللّهِ وَفِيكُمْ رَسُولُهُ
وَمَن يَعْتَصِم بِاللّهِ فَقَدْ هُدِيَ إِلَى صِرَاطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ 3:101 
3:101  And how can you deny the Faith while having Allah's (God's) Signs Revealed to/over you, and His messenger dwells with you. 
And whoever firmly believe (holds onto) God will be guided onto the righteous path.  

That's how much My Father Loves Me, and why I don't mind the cold shoulder (duck season) so much now that I am within hearing range :~(  {I lied, I mind it very much...}

Surah 3 Al.3'mran (The 3'mran)
تِلْكَ آيَاتُ اللّهِ
نَتْلُوهَا عَلَيْكَ بِالْحَقِّ
وَمَا اللّهُ يُرِيدُ ظُلْمًا لِّلْعَالَمِينَ 3:108
3:108  Such are God's Signs
That We Recite To  You In Truth,
And, God Does Not Desire Injustice/Oppression/Darkness in/for/to the Worlds (Creation).

Surah 7 Al.A3raf  (The Heights)
يَا بَنِي آدَمَ إِمَّا
 يَأْتِيَنَّكُمْ رُسُلٌ مِّنكُمْ يَقُصُّونَ عَلَيْكُمْ آيَاتِي
 فَمَنِ اتَّقَى وَأَصْلَحَ
فَلاَ خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلاَ هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ  7:35    
7:35 O, Children of Adam (Humanity)!
He Grants you a messenger of you to clarify for you Our Signs (Ayat.al.Quran).
So that whoever heeds (the message) and corrects (their divergent path),
no fear shall they have nor shall they grieve.

Surah 35 Al.Fatir (The Originator)
ثُمَّ أَوْرَثْنَا الْكِتَابَ الَّذِينَ اصْطَفَيْنَا مِنْ عِبَادِنَا
 فَمِنْهُمْ ظَالِمٌ لِّنَفْسِهِ وَمِنْهُم مُّقْتَصِدٌ وَمِنْهُمْ سَابِقٌ بِالْخَيْرَاتِ
 بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ
ذَلِكَ هُوَ الْفَضْلُ الْكَبِيرُ35:32
35:32  Then We Made to Inherit The Book (Scripture) whomever We Choose from/of Our Servants (Faithful),
Some of whom had wronged themselves (sinned), and some of them are provident, and some of them surpass others in goodness,
by God's Will (Ordinance).
This is a great preference/favor/advantage/merit.

And, other viable information from trusted sources, such as Hadith, about learning as narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr:
I heard the Prophet saying, "Allah will not deprive you of knowledge after he has given it to you, but it will be taken away through the death of the religious learned men along with their knowledge. Then there will remain ignorant people who, when consulted, will give verdicts according to their opinions whereby they will mislead others and go astray." 
According to this hadith, the ultimate downfall or failure of a system (society, test, or system)  is acting based on information that is not valid, be it unknown (not within the purview of the actor) or misinterpreted (the actor takes action on a misunderstood or poorly understood concept).

Surah 1 Fatiha (The Opening)
1:1 Bismillah Al.Rahman Al.Raheem...
1:6 Ah.dinna as.sirrat al.mustaqeem
1:7 Sirat al.laththeena an.3mta 3'layhum, ghairi al.maghdubi 3'lyhum, walla adh.dhaleen
ammeen.

1:1 In the Name of God, The Rahman, The Raheem...

1:6 Guide us onto the straight Path (Right Way, Correctly, Least Likely Prone to Error...)
1:7 The Path of those You Graced With Your Guidance, Not those (other than) those that incurred Your Wrath, and Not (Neither that) of the ones who are Lost (Mislead Others).
Amen.

In some translations of the Quran the verse 1:7 is given quite an interpretively wide range of who or what those who 'incur God's Wrath' and those who 'mislead' or are 'lost' may be, but the Scripture is clear in what they are literally described to be.

When interpreted with seditious intentions, those who God is said to be angry with are stated to be the "Jews" and the misguided/misleading ones are said to be the 'Christians'--what I would call a gross misinterpretation of The Law, because neither of these 2 categories of people are mentioned in the passage in Sign 1:7 at all.

Were that the intended meaning, they would have been called out as such in Sign 1:7 as  they were elsewhere in the Quran when they are mentioned as: B'Nai Israel (Jews); or Ansaar (Nazireen, Christians); or simply as 'People of the Book (Earlier Scripture)'.

Yet, many adhere to the self-described self-motivated learned community's interpretation of the passage  (or 3'ulamma)  without questioning the validity of the message in context or by examining the original source for themselves.

A sure recipe for disaster.

Information from lower-level sources has to be understood within the contemporary context by those recognizing the message since such sources may not have had access to adequate technology or language to deliver the information in a format that can be encompassed by those he/she/it dwelt among.

Surah 36 Ya.Seen
وَمَا عَلَيْنَا إِلاَّ الْبَلاَغُ الْمُبِينُ 36:17   
36:17 And We are not bound to do more than to deliver the Message Clearly...

In turn, there is an expectation that the newly informed community that is given the faculty to discern such a message to Act Accordingly:

Surah 3 Al.3'mran (The 3'mran)
وَإِذْ أَخَذَ اللّهُ مِيثَاقَ النَّبِيِّيْنَ لَمَا آتَيْتُكُم مِّن كِتَابٍ وَحِكْمَةٍ
ثُمَّ جَاءكُمْ رَسُولٌ مُّصَدِّقٌ لِّمَا مَعَكُمْ لَتُؤْمِنُنَّ بِهِ وَلَتَنصُرُنَّهُ
قَالَ أَأَقْرَرْتُمْ وَأَخَذْتُمْ عَلَى ذَلِكُمْ إِصْرِي
قَالُواْ أَقْرَرْنَا
 قَالَ فَاشْهَدُواْ وَأَنَاْ مَعَكُم مِّنَ الشَّاهِدِينَ 3:81
3:81   And God Made a Pact with the Messengers (Angels, Prophets, Apostles), "Whenever I Grant You of Scripture and Wisdom (Judgment) and thereafter an honest/trustworthy message-bearer comes to You confirming what Is With You, that You Believe him/her/it (the message-bearer) and that You help/aide/assist them."
He Said, "Agree--and, make My Covenant Binding with You?"
They Said, "We Agree!"
He Said, "Bear Witness (to it) and I Am A Witness Among You."

Surah 2 Al.Baqara (The Calf)
وَكَذَلِكَ جَعَلْنَاكُمْ أُمَّةً وَسَطًا
لِّتَكُونُواْ شُهَدَاء عَلَى النَّاسِ
وَيَكُونَ الرَّسُولُ عَلَيْكُمْ شَهِيدًا وَمَا جَعَلْنَا الْقِبْلَةَ الَّتِي كُنتَ عَلَيْهَا
إِلاَّ لِنَعْلَمَ مَن يَتَّبِعُ الرَّسُولَ مِمَّن يَنقَلِبُ عَلَى عَقِبَيْهِ
وَإِن كَانَتْ لَكَبِيرَةً إِلاَّ عَلَى الَّذِينَ هَدَى اللّهُ
وَمَا كَانَ اللّهُ لِيُضِيعَ إِيمَانَكُمْ 2:143  
2:143  And in this manner, We Made you a Community of the Middle-Way (Moderation, Even-handed) to be Witness over other Nations (Nas),
and the Messenger is Witness over you. And We did not make the Qibla (Direction to which you once prayed) that you once faced (intend to), except to We Determine (Know, Establish) which of you follows the messenger and who will turn on his heels (revert to apostasy).
Indeed, a very difficult trial for those guided aright to God.
And God Shall not waste your Faithfulness (Iman).
Indeed, God Is Ever-Compassionate toward mankind, Raheem (Merciful).

Yet, such wrong interpretations that are accepted without referring to the original text and absent the even-handed, judicious consideration of a Knowledgeable person in the Community propagating the correct information to counteract the ignorance, that community quickly devolves based on the actions they take based on the wrong information.

And this is what the hadith above, as Narrated by Abdullah bin'Amr, is warning against: that a major part of the learned community dies out leaving only the ignorant people behind to simply render their opinions on second-hand information (be it science, medicine, law, religion, etc.) since they are absent any faculty for discernment of what delineates: True or False; Right from Wrong; The White Thread from the Black Thread of Dawn, and pass it off on a broad swathe of the populace as 'The God's Honest Truth'--Ya Know, like 'S'wear-ring!

Example: 

A society degraded due to ignorant leaders who formulate judgment based on their own opinion and NOT learned deliberation behaves thusly: 
California Vehicle Code (insert your favorite one here) assesses a penalty for a moving violation of a given type (elaborate on your favorite one here). 
(Aside: Did You Know...LAPD badge numbers may have as few as 1 digit, and according to one officer whose 5 digit badge number started with 16, he was hired in the 90's and officers hired now (c. 2013) have badge numbers that start with 20...?) 
In this example it is handed to a 20-year old full-time student on her way to a part-time job, who is essentially a displaced homeless person because she is bearing the brunt of her father's anger after he divorces her mother (because she aged out of the marriage, let's just say) and, so, kicks her out of the house, too. 
This student, who happens to look like a cross between a Monchichi  and a Bratz doll, now has to decide whether to pay for her school registration ($250) in order to get the classes she needs before they close her out or pay the ticket ($450 penalty for the moving violation according to the vehicle code). 
She is also stressed, homeless, prone to anxiety attacks, and doesn't have enough gas money to fly around all over town and does not want to burden her already now transient, stressed out, chronically ill newly divorced mother whom she knows to have been forced out of the marriage with nothing but debt. 
Mass transit is not a viable option because the buses don't run frequently enough and she hauls around a portfolio that is half her body height. 
Since she only has $276 in her account, the kid decides to register for school and not miss graduating on time if she doesn't get the classes she needs, and then go to court to plead her case before the, ahem, 'judge'. 
After the new semester is underway and the beleaguered young adult is making a harsh adjustment, she makes time to go to the courthouse, see the clerk, plead 'not guilty' (the only way you can see the judge whether you think you did something wrong or not), and ya know, appeal to their 'reason.' 
She gets a court date to come back another time. So, she takes time off work and school that day to see the Judge and because that day the docket was set in reverse alphabetical order, the little driver with the big ticket winds up being the last one to be called before the Judge. 
She forfeited the whole day because it was the equivalent to a 'cattle call'--awww, sweetie-pi :~( 
The, ahem, 'Judge', after not really listening to the facts as to why this person could not pay the ticket on time, more than DOUBLES the fine (what amounted to half the annual income for this individual--goodness!!
So, our little Monchichi Bratz Doll, walks out of the courthouse that day as The Monchichi Bratz Ninja Doll from Hel, calls Her Mother with the Outcome, screaming, "I KNOW now why people blow up government buildings!!" 
(hel being defined as just about the farthest place removed from God and she acting like our homegrown version of  la femme Nikita--She was made in the USA, that's how We Know She's Good! Our version of 'Tonka-tested-tough') 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

An Object Lesson:


The Beast  dabat (  دَابَّةً  beast/ride/reptile/creeping thing/excursion/travel...)
in 27:82, however, is an object of some unfamiliar sort intended to provide just such a lesson, given the emphasis that it travels and relates information about an individual's life. 

The inference is that it manifests after Judgment for the individual has been rendered ('the promise that befalls') or perhaps after they leave the earthly plane of existence. The machination is something 'from the Earth to Speak to them', in all likelihood to help us gain some insight as to what we were doing in retrospect during our erstwhile life.

And since Steve H. keeps identifying with an objectionable object, the following dedicated section to this blog post is one form such a beast, dabat, may take since it can be any vehicle used to inform; natural, man-made, or other:

Given that God is not an object, yet His avatar wanna-be earth-bound version , Steve H., insists that he is an ass 0 --Humility? Self-deprecation?,  or,  No, Really!--it is Our Duty to try our best to shore up his E-Go! By learning to say something like this:
"There are all kinds of parts to the Human Body.   
Even the 2-fers are necessary. 
But since the Ass 0 is singular, and nothing proceeds forward without it should it be bogged down needlessly, it is a Most Vital Ent.ET
Moreover, it incurs the highest maintenance costs, on average (think: just the associated TP and water consumption costs alone to keep it Tide.E). 
That's why it gets to be the Boss and paid Hand.some.ly!"
How's that for a dabin, Dear code-word 'husband' Steve H., to help You come to terms with your self-effacing assessment of yours truly? 

Surah 36 Ya.Siin
إِنَّا نَحْنُ نُحْيِي الْمَوْتَى وَنَكْتُبُ مَا قَدَّمُوا
وَآثَارَهُمْ
وَكُلَّ شَيْءٍ أحْصَيْنَاهُ فِي إِمَامٍ مُبِينٍ (36:12   

And everything We Accounted in/by a Conspicuous/Evident Imam/Record (إِمَامٍ , the root umma, meaning Nations/Communities and the Imam is a leader in such communities (it could be any community, not just human))

The playback from data loggers can serve as technological analogs for such a beast, too, given that they are designed to record information over protracted periods of time, in inclement conditions, and often without constant oversight. 

Data Logger, a type of Data Acquisition System with very long sample times.
Intuitively, it is tempting to simply use the ratio of the Chapter:Verse 36/12 or 12/36 (that's a 3, or 1/3) for the speed for such a record or playback, just to see what, if anything, We missed the first time through or when We thought No One was watching. (Refer to Lusona Lesson and the ratio 1/3 for more insight into this coming-of-age story).

Given that the human body is innately wired to process information from its environment through sight, sound, touch and visceral perception (extra-sensory modes, such as 'intuition', 'deduction', etc.) it can be thought of as, dare I say, an Antenna.

And such a body behaves like an organic transceiver that both emits and receives information via oscillations, or vibrations, in its surroundings.

Just like its man-made analogs, it can only transmit or receive those frequencies which it is primed or tuned into, whether electro-magnetic, sonic, or other--i.e., chemical (atomic or molecular), mechanical (concussive, shock), and physical (like pressure waves, gravitational waves, tidal waves, etc.).

The vibrations can be harmonic or discrete (quanta, packets, passels), but as long as that human body is tuned to it, it can process such oscillations as information.

It is indicated that baseline neural oscillations in the human brain can be altered by activities such as prayer and meditation. Spiritualists, such as monks and nuns, can establish an average neural gamma wave of about 40 Hz during prayer and meditation, and this gamma neural frequency range  (25-100 Hz) is known to be activated during vision quests. 

It then stands to reason that altering the natural resonance frequency ranges in a human body can lead to enhancing or blocking their ability to perceive the all the vibrations in their environment.

This amounts to essentially opening up their ability to access more of the field of information available to them in order to widen accessibility to typically unavailable frequencies or limiting their ability to perceive or function by interfering with their baseline resonance frequency levels.

There are established methods to doing this, some were mentioned earlier like meditation and prayer. Other means include: the known side-effects to medications; psychoactive agents (LSD, cocaine, etc.); being born with a wider (Seers) or more limited frequency tuning range (individuals having Autism and Aspergers ); and then the old-fashioned stand-by, 'involuntary human subjects to toxic air events'--commonly referred to as 'sick-building syndrome' and a host of other environmentally triggered disorders.

Any such modification, whether to enhance or delimit, of the God-Ordered natural state of the human being must never be done without that human being's consent after being fully apprised of the ramifications such tampering (dampening or acceleration) with the normal baseline frequency resonances of  such an individual entails.

For one thing, it might make them very sick. For another thing, having their perception challenged and altered in such a way, they will never be the same person again--which may not always be an 'enhancement' for the better.

And absent any known viral, bacterial, or other identifiable causative, they are liable to think they are crazy!

Or, if they conclude that crazy isn't supposed to HURT, make them carry around a new agenda each day that typically was not a consideration prior to such an experience, (like 'I will try not to hurt myself or others' because they wouldn't in the first place, but now it's an issue),  and want to carry around data loggers with very long sample times and playback the recordings at different speeds to verify that with their enhanced brain wave spectrum they heard right--Steve Is An AssO!

Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out

“The mind of God is music resonating through ten dimensional hyperspace”--Michio Kaku


"...we seek to find the divinity within...in the metaphor of the present — turn on, tune in, drop out."--Timothy Leary  

{Note to kids: Do not take Leary's remarks literally--it's all about metaphors here.}

It's all about being aware by sharpening the senses

{Note to everyone else: Psychedelics need not be involved. A good read does the job just as well without the requisite 'flying leap.'

Apparently, new theories about high frequency Gamma waves in the brain, (range 25-100 Hz neural oscillation) on average about 40 Hz, may have the same benefit of gaining a higher consciousness and intelligence, and a more aware and blissful (read: whole == interconnected ) state without worrying about the narcs dropping in unexpectedly.
}

It's more to do with uncovering whatever is masking the Truth--'lifting the veil.' 

A means to 'sharpen the innate senses' by constant inquiry to reach for the real meaning behind a perception or event, rather than having to 'suspend reality' altogether, define a more suitable realism.

So much for the preamble after a glass of fine wine...

The Night veils the Day:

Surah 7 Al.A3'raf
إِنَّ رَبَّكُمُ اللّهُ الَّذِي خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضَ فِي سِتَّةِ أَيَّامٍ 
ثُمَّ اسْتَوَى عَلَى الْعَرْشِ
 يُغْشِي اللَّيْلَ النَّهَارَ
يَطْلُبُهُ حَثِيثًا وَالشَّمْسَ وَالْقَمَرَ وَالنُّجُومَ مُسَخَّرَاتٍ بِأَمْرِهِ
 أَلاَ لَهُ الْخَلْقُ وَالأَمْرُ
تَبَارَكَ اللّهُ رَبُّ الْعَالَمِينَ (7:54 

7:54 Indeed Your Sustainer is God that Created the Heavens and the Earth in Six Days (Eons)
Then Established (Astawa==Leveled, Ascended...) onto the Throne (Dominion, Highest Part...)
The  Night Veils the Day Actively/Vigorously Questing (Seeking, Asking (of Him)) 
The Sun and the Moon and the Stars are poised/held at His Command/Will
For Him is the Creation and the Command/Will
All Praise is Due to God the Sustainer of the Worlds 


Surah 13 Thunder
وَهُوَ الَّذِي مَدَّ الأَرْضَ وَجَعَلَ فِيهَا رَوَاسِيَ وَأَنْهَارًا

13:3 And it is He that spreads/extends the Earth and established on her Mountains and Rivers
And of every fruit/thing it produces He Created Mated Pairs (complementary duals)
He Makes the Night Veil the Day
Indeed, these are Signs for those who Think/Consider/Reflect

Surah 91 The Sun
وَاللَّيْلِ إِذَا يَغْشَاهَا (91:4

91:4 ...and the Night when it Veils/Covers/Obscures it (the Brightness of Day)

Surah 92 Night
وَاللَّيْلِ إِذَا يَغْشَى (92:1

References to Objects that are veiled:
Solomon's horses:
Surah 38 Suad 
فَقَالَ إِنِّي أَحْبَبْتُ حُبَّ الْخَيْرِ عَن ذِكْرِ رَبِّي
 حَتَّى تَوَارَتْ بِالْحِجَابِ (38:32 

38:32 Causing Him (Solomon) to Say, "I love/desire the love of goodness (doing good) in Remembrance of my Lord,
Even as (His horses) disappeared within (behind) the veil.

Gestation:
Surah 39 Zummar 
خَلَقَكُم مِّن نَّفْسٍ وَاحِدَةٍ 
ثُمَّ جَعَلَ مِنْهَا زَوْجَهَا 
وَأَنزَلَ لَكُم مِّنْ الْأَنْعَامِ ثَمَانِيَةَ أَزْوَاجٍ 
يَخْلُقُكُمْ فِي بُطُونِ أُمَّهَاتِكُمْ
خَلْقًا مِن بَعْدِ خَلْقٍ فِي ظُلُمَاتٍ ثَلَاثٍ
ذَلِكُمُ اللَّهُ
رَبُّكُمْ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ
لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا هُوَ
فَأَنَّى تُصْرَفُونَ (39:6 

39:6 He Created you of A Single/Unified/United Soul
Then He Created/Brought forth of Her (that Soul) its Mate
And He propagated for you of Cattle eight pairs
He Creates you within your Mother's wombs
One Creation after Another Creation in a three-fold darkness/shadow/veil/obscurity
Such is Your God
Your Lord Holds the Dominion (Reigns Over, the Dominion Belongs to Him)
There is no God other than He
How is it that you are so lost/misled (about this fact)?


The Lote Tree:
Surah 53 Najm 
إِذْ يَغْشَى السِّدْرَةَ مَا يَغْشَى (53:16  

53:16  The Lote Tree veiled in whatever obscured/veiled it

Quranic Recitation:
Surah 17 Isra 
وَإِذَا قَرَأْتَ الْقُرآنَ
جَعَلْنَا بَيْنَكَ وَبَيْنَ الَّذِينَ لاَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِالآخِرَةِ
حِجَابًا مَّسْتُورًا (17:45 

17:45 And should You Recite/Read the Quran
We Create/Establish between You and those who do not believe in the Hereafter
A Hidden/Imperceptible/Secure Veil/Cover 

The world:
Surah 81 Takwir 
وَإِذَا السَّمَاء كُشِطَتْ (81:11 

81:11 And should the Sky Be Skimmed/Scraped/Abraided/Planed/Grazed/Gently Touched... 

Surah 53 Najm
لَيْسَ لَهَا مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ كَاشِفَةٌ (53:58  

53:58 Who Other than God Can Unveil It/Uncover/Disclose it...

Surah 12 Joseph
أَفَأَمِنُواْ أَن تَأْتِيَهُمْ غَاشِيَةٌ مِّنْ عَذَابِ اللّهِ
 أَوْ تَأْتِيَهُمُ السَّاعَةُ بَغْتَةً
وَهُمْ لاَ يَشْعُرُونَ (12:107 

12:107 Are they so secure against a cloud/veil/trance of God's punishment
or the Hour not befall them Unexpectedly (Suddenly/Surprsingly)
while they are Unaware/not sense it/not feel it/not notice it.

Unbelievers or disbelievers or the faithless are veiled from God's Light:

Surah 83 Muttaffifin 
كَلَّا إِنَّهُمْ عَن رَّبِّهِمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ لَّمَحْجُوبُونَ (83:15  

83:15 Nay, they will be on that day Veiled/Invisible/Restricted from their Lord.


Many references to veiled senses with respect to the experience of the Sleepers in the Cave:
Surah 18 The Cave
18:11 فَضَرَبْنَا عَلَى آذَانِهِمْ فِي الْكَهْفِ سِنِينَ عَدَدًا 

18:11  Meanwhile We locked out/battered/struck... their ears/hearing in the Cave for a number of years.

The manner in which the Cave Dwellers' hearing was affected is detailed in the word فَضَرَبْنَا fa.dthrabna, the causative form of the word  ضَرَبْ 'dtharab'. In context in Sign 18:11 it generally means 'We Afflicted in this manner', or 'Shut Down' their hearing, a word similar to 'struck' in English. 

The verb nuance in Arabic connotes 'to hit,' 'to strike,' 'to pummel' (strike repeatedly), and secondary meanings 'to lock out', 'to thrash', 'to connect/link' , 'to overtake', 'to bend' ,  'to slash' and even 'to lace'. The noun basically means 'multiplication', 'hitting', 'grain', 'jabbing', 'system' or 'order'.

The Chaper:Verse numbers lend themselves to interpretation as the differential between one ear and the other, either a ratio or actual set values of frequency or pressure. And it may be inferred from the word 'multiplied' that an escalation is taking place, and when talking about sound that readily lends itself to being interpreted as an actual 'crescendo', a build-up of sound.

{Forgive me for not falling for the 'she's a genius' 'beautiful' 'awesome' schtick--and really, so what if You are Jewish, I didn't stop to ask what book any of You were reading when I had to 'go fetch' ewes guys outta the heap of trouble you were collectively in--Is that why I can't see you? Y'all a bunch of miscreants?

If I was all that brilliant I would have figured out by now Who You Are and Why This Happened to Me?

And while I am trying to figure out why it is I can hear You, the fact is that You All are just as surprised that I do!}

In humans, and under ideal laboratory conditions, maximal hearing ranges from 12 Hz to 20 Hz, deteriorating slightly with age to about 16 to 18 Hz at the top end.  

If 18:11 is a set point then it is near the upper sonic pitch at 18 Hz and slightly infrasonic at 11 Hz. This combination of frequencies (or pressures) effects the stereocilia in the inner ear in such a manner as to cause them to literally 'bend' in a way as to 'lace/enmesh' and 'seize up', effectively shutting down or locking out or 'isolating' a person's natural hearing (see stereocilia below).


قُلِ اللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا لَبِثُوا
لَهُ غَيْبُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ
أَبْصِرْ وَأَسْمِعْ مَا لَهُم مِّن دُونِهِ مِن وَلِيٍّ
 وَلَا يُشْرِكُ فِي حُكْمِهِ أَحَدًا (18:26 

18:26 Say, "God Knows how long they remained (in the Cave);
To Him Belongs the Mysteries(Hidden/Unseen/Imperceptible, i.e. veiled, obscured) of the Heavens and the Earth;
He Sees and Hears With Them!
They have no Guardian other than God, and He Joins/Partners His Dominion with no other!

وَمَنْ أَظْلَمُ مِمَّن ذُكِّرَ بِآيَاتِ رَبِّهِ 
فَأَعْرَضَ عَنْهَا وَنَسِيَ مَا قَدَّمَتْ يَدَاهُ
 إِنَّا جَعَلْنَا عَلَى قُلُوبِهِمْ أَكِنَّةً
أَن يَفْقَهُوهُ وَفِي آذَانِهِمْ وَقْرًا
وَإِن تَدْعُهُمْ إِلَى الْهُدَى
 فَلَن يَهْتَدُوا إِذًا أَبَدًا (18:57  

18:57 And who could be more wrongful/oppressive/in the dark than one who is given God's Signs/Messages
and opposes/turns their back  on them and forgets/voids whatever good his hands have wrought/put forward?
We have established over their hearts/senses a veil/obstruction/a construction similar to an additional building atop their 'ceiling' to keep them from understanding its purport
and in their ears a deafness;
and in this manner keeping them from guidance;
so that they will never be guided onto the right path.


الَّذِينَ كَانَتْ أَعْيُنُهُمْ فِي غِطَاء عَن ذِكْرِي
 وَكَانُوا لَا يَسْتَطِيعُونَ سَمْعًا (18:101  

18:101 Those who have a covering/veil over their eyes/sight from Remembrance
and do not follow/obey what they Hear/Discern.

The veiling or obstruction is selective, in Sign 18:101 the eyes or vision is circumscribed while the hearing/auditory system is fully engaged. 

According to the resonance frequency chart below (validity questionable) the Verse number coincides with 18 Hz is with the knees slightly bent,  within the range of the lower arm (16-30 Hz) and a couple of Hz below the lower range found around the head (20-30 Hz) and the eyeball (20-90 Hz), and the chapter number 101 is just slightly above the chest wall upper resonance frequency (50-100 Hz).

And as mentioned earlier, 18 Hz is a suitable frequency for the upper aural (sonic) range in humans, and Sign 18:101 clearly states that they ignore what they do hear (and most hearing people can hear at 18 Hz, but the accusation is that they refuse to listen).

By this reasoning then 101 is a set point for establishing the 'covering' or 'veil' over a person's ability to see or visually perceive any of God's Signs, while their hearing is actively engaged.

Sharpening senses has to do with unveiling the sight, the hearing, the perception.

There is reference to such a construction  (  أَكِنَّةً akinat) being put in place deliberately by God to obscure the true nature of reality from nonbelievers. The inference derived from the word "akeenat" is that it is a construction atop the highest level of a building, read as ceiling, but can mean the upper part of any object, in the human body the 'vaulted' areas which are characterized by 'arching overhead to cover a space' are one accessible analogy.

Surah 2 The Calf
خَتَمَ اللّهُ عَلَى قُلُوبِهمْ وَعَلَى سَمْعِهِمْ وَعَلَى أَبْصَارِهِمْ غِشَاوَةٌ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابٌ عظِيمٌ (2:7 
2:7 God Sealed their hearts and their hearing and their sight/perception with a Veil/Obstruction/Covering/Shadow and they earned a terrible persecution.

Surah 6 Cattle
وَمِنْهُم مَّن يَسْتَمِعُ إِلَيْكَ 
وَجَعَلْنَا عَلَى قُلُوبِهِمْ أَكِنَّةً أَن يَفْقَهُوهُ 
وَفِي آذَانِهِمْ وَقْرًا
 وَإِن يَرَوْاْ كُلَّ آيَةٍ لاَّ يُؤْمِنُواْ بِهَا
حَتَّى إِذَا جَآؤُوكَ يُجَادِلُونَكَ
يَقُولُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ إِنْ هَذَآ إِلاَّ أَسَاطِيرُ الأَوَّلِينَ (6:25 
6:25  And among them some listen to You,
yet We placed/established/built over their hearts an obstruction (veil, covering)أَكِنَّةً like a building over the upper reaches or 'ceiling' so that they not understand its meaning;
and in their ears a deafness
and should they see every Sign/Proof/Evidence they shall never believe in it,
that they even argue with You about it.
Those who disbelieve say, "These are merely fables/stories/myths of the Ancients/our forefathers."


Surah 17 Isra
وَجَعَلْنَا عَلَى قُلُوبِهِمْ أَكِنَّةً
أَن يَفْقَهُوهُ
وَفِي آذَانِهِمْ وَقْرًا
وَإِذَا ذَكَرْتَ رَبَّكَ فِي الْقُرْآنِ وَحْدَهُ
وَلَّوْاْ عَلَى أَدْبَارِهِمْ نُفُورًا (17:46  

17:46 And We Created/Established/Built over their hearts akinatta أَكِنَّةً  /a veil/covering (an extra structure over them)
so that they not comprehend/understand it
and in their ears is a deafness
and whenever You Commemorate Your One and Only Lord in the Quran,
they turn their backs in aversion.

  • Functional frequency ~ (frequency Range)
  • 17 Hz ~The knees when bending slightly (2 (seated) - 20 (erect posture) Hz)
  • 46 Hz ~ The hand (30-50 Hz) 
  • 36 Hz ~ The Eyeball (20 -90 Hz) 
And it would appear that some people are actually aware of being blocked in such a manner (oblivious), and they're not being able to access the higher realm of information or sensation, but it still doesn't keep them from behaving like they needn't account for their behavior despite such an insight.



Surah 41 Fussilat
وَقَالُوا قُلُوبُنَا فِي أَكِنَّةٍ مِّمَّا تَدْعُونَا إِلَيْهِ
 وَفِي آذَانِنَا وَقْرٌ
وَمِن بَيْنِنَا وَبَيْنِكَ حِجَابٌ
فَاعْمَلْ إِنَّنَا عَامِلُونَ (41:5 

41:5 And they (the faithless) said, "Our hearts are enclosed (in أَكِنَّةً akeenatin, a construction that blocks) from  what You call us to, 
and in our ears is deafness, 
and between us and You is a Veil/obscurity
so You do (what You will, Act!) and we do as we do (our works, business as usual).

If one were to modify the functional resonance frequencies throughout the human body in such a fashion as interfering with 41 Hz and 5 Hz (Sign 41:5), the chest wall at 50 -100 Hz and the hearing at 12- 20 Hz sonic range are not directly affected, but the assumption is that the overall affect is to reduce the understanding of the types of concepts presented in the Quran from being understood, or to distance that individual from the realization of God's Works.

  • Functional frequency ~ (frequency Range)
  • 5 Hz ~The shoulder girdle (4-5 Hz)
  • 5 Hz ~ The arm (5-10 Hz)
  • 5 Hz~ The abdominal mass (4-8 Hz)
  • 5 Hz ~The knees when bending (2- 20 Hz)
  • 41 Hz ~ The hand (30-50 Hz) 
  • 41 Hz ~ The Eyeball (20 -90 Hz)

About the أَكِنَّةً  akinatan:   As a noun it means an 'accent' or 'frieze' or an additional construction or embellishment to  the top most part of a building. What we would think of as a 'penthouse'. That while such a construction betokens some level of luxury, the basic elevation is literally 'setback from the outermost walls on the roof of a building.'

In pop culture the concept readily lends itself to 'the cone of silence' in the Get Smart franchise. But if one were to construct such a thing in the biological analog, what exactly are we looking at?

{
Note to self about the akinat: 

The obstruction/construction that is laid over the 'ceiling' of some one's perception interferes with both the signal coming from/to the heart and the hearing/auditory system (according to 45:23, 41:5, 17:46, 6:25, 2:7 the heart and hearing are mentioned together as suppressed and the veiled/covering of the vision when mentioned is a separate addition to limiting the heart and hearing).

**The implication is that signaling is more intimately linked between the cardiovascular and auditory sensory system than it is for other sensory systems.

signaling in the body cardiac and auditory systems:
...only in birds and mammals are the two streams of blood – those to the pulmonary and systemic circulations – permanently kept entirely separate by a physical barrier.

The heart is effectively a syncytium, a meshwork of cardiac muscle cells interconnected by contiguous cytoplasmic bridges. 

This relates to electrical stimulation of one cell spreading to neighboring cells.

Some cardiac cells are self-excitable, having their own intrinsic contraction rhythm. 

A region of the human heart called the sinoatrial (SA) node, or pacemaker, generates electrical impulses similar to those produced by nerve cells, that sets the rate and timing at which all cardiac muscles contract.
Cardiac muscle cells are electrically coupled by intercalated disks between adjacent cells allowing impulses from the SA node spread rapidly through the walls of the atria, causing both atria to contract in unison. 

The impulses also pass to a relay point called the atrioventricular node  in the wall between the right atrium and the right ventricle where impulses are delayed for about 0.1s before spreading to the walls of the ventricle

The delay ensures that the atria empty completely before the ventricles contract. 

Specialized muscle fibers called Purkinje fibers then conduct the signals to the apex of the heart along and throughout the ventricular walls. The Purkinje fibres form conducting pathways called bundle branches

This entire cycle, a single heart beat, lasts about 0.8 seconds

The impulses generated during the heart cycle produce electrical currents, which are conducted through body fluids to the skin.

2 things may be going on:

  • If the skin is taken to be the outer most walls (uppermost), then the setback would be subcutaneous in nature...
  • If the setback involves the actual  electrical signals, that would in principle involve synaptic activity, and possibly associated Ca2+ ion flux which is known to drive or regulate dendrite morphological responses (growth and stabilization) in mammals and birds, then this entails some type of slowing (or otherwise 'setting back') such a signal. This may be a response time adjustment or a phase shift or some combination of both.
}

One reason for holding such a construction in place to serve as a means of testing someone's actions or motivation:


Surah 45 Jathiya
أَفَرَأَيْتَ مَنِ اتَّخَذَ إِلَهَهُ هَوَاهُ وَأَضَلَّهُ اللَّهُ عَلَى عِلْمٍ 
وَخَتَمَ عَلَى سَمْعِهِ وَقَلْبِهِ وَجَعَلَ عَلَى بَصَرِهِ غِشَاوَةً
فَمَن يَهْدِيهِ مِن بَعْدِ اللَّهِ
أَفَلَا تَذَكَّرُونَ (45:23 

45:23 Have You seen such a one as takes his own whims for his god, and God misleads him Knowing this,
and Seals his hearing and his heart and establishes a veil/covering over his sight;
who can guide (to righteousness) such a person other than God?
Will you bethink yourselves?

  • Functional frequency ~ (frequency Range)
  • 45 Hz ~ The hand (30-50 Hz) 
  • 23 Hz ~ The Eyeball (20 -90 Hz) 
Per 45:23, following one's own fancy (or whims) is definitely expressed by how they are affected by their Eye-Hand connection.

And there is mention that only God Removes such a veil/covering:

Surah 50 Qaf
لَقَدْ كُنتَ فِي غَفْلَةٍ مِّنْ هَذَا
 فَكَشَفْنَا عَنكَ غِطَاءكَ
فَبَصَرُكَ الْيَوْمَ حَدِيدٌ (50:22  

50:22 You were indeed unmindful of this (Day of Judgment)
so We uncovered/removed from you your veil/covering;
therefore, today your sight is sharp as steel! (lit. Your vision today is the utmost degree/extreme/ Iron!)

Sign 50:22 is an 'altered state' alert. This also hints at a very personal experience in that an individual may be taken to task while the world as they know it continues to go on around them as before. The inference is a Judgment Day is tailored to each individual--don't believe me? Try to get any one else to buy in on it when you find yourself front and center!

The assumption according to Sign 50:22 is that to modify these 2 frequencies in the body would make an individual more 'mindful' or wake up to what it is exactly they are doing.

  • Functional frequency ~ (frequency Range)
  • 50 Hz ~ The hand (30-50 Hz) 
  • 22 Hz ~ The Eyeball (20 -90 Hz)

Another reason is to put some people in a state of suspended animation, like the Men on the Heights (Al.A3'raf Sign 7:46), where whatever they were doing at present or had happened in their past lives was literally 'sealed off' (Sign 36:9). 

A further reason is given so that such Men can literally have access to a higher dimension or become higher dimensional objects so they can see more of the field (that's why I now must insist that you all stay out of my bathroom--I've tolerated incursions into my kitchen, and even the bedroom, but really that toilet realm is not meant to be shared, unless you are all toddlers still learning how to bus your collective self)

Surah 7 Al.A3raf
وَبَيْنَهُمَا حِجَابٌ
وَعَلَى الأَعْرَافِ رِجَالٌ يَعْرِفُونَ كُلاًّ بِسِيمَاهُمْ
وَنَادَوْاْ أَصْحَابَ الْجَنَّةِ
أَن سَلاَمٌ عَلَيْكُمْ
لَمْ يَدْخُلُوهَا وَهُمْ يَطْمَعُونَ (7:46  
7:46 And between them is a Veil
and on the Heights (Al.A3raf) are Men that Know everyone by their Name/Marks;
and they call to the denizens of Paradise, 
"Peace be upon You!"
They have not entered it, but they long to/are covetous of it.

The application for Sign 7:46 may be a little different from actually shutting off a frequency or offsetting it in some way, since the understanding from the text (Quran) is that the Men on the Heights have a reason to be there and they have a promise of accessing 'heaven', so they are good men and needn't be 'tampered' with. So, that means if we know the resonance frequencies throughout their body the numbers 7 and 46 Hz are more likely indicative of the actual position these men were physically in when they were 'inducted' to serve the 'higher calling.' 

Based on the reference below it goes something like this:
  • Functional frequency ~ (frequency Range)
  • 7 Hz ~ The arm (5-10 Hz) 
  • 7 Hz ~ The abdomen (4-8 Hz)
  • 7 Hz ~ The legs (2-20 Hz)
  • 46 Hz ~ The hand (30-50 Hz)  
More accurate or detailed information about frequencies throughout the human body may give a better picture of what they were actually in the midst of doing when they were caught up or 'enraptured.'

Surah 36 Ya.Sin
وَجَعَلْنَا مِن بَيْنِ أَيْدِيهِمْ سَدًّا
وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِمْ سَدًّا
فَأَغْشَيْنَاهُمْ فَهُمْ لاَ يُبْصِرُونَ (36:9 

36:9 And We Established a seal/closure in whatever they were presently doing (literally, closed off/sealed off what was between their hands) 
and from behind them (their past) a closure/seal (literally, and from/of their backs/behind them sealed);
thus, We Veiled/Obscured them while they were unaware/did not notice.


  • Functional frequency ~ (frequency Range)
  • 9 Hz ~ The arm (5-10 Hz) 
  • 9 Hz ~ The legs (2-20 Hz)
  • 9 Hz ~ The spinal column (back) (10-12 Hz axial mode, so perhaps supine or bent somehow)
  • 36 Hz ~ The hand (30-50 Hz) 

Yet despite having one's senses revitalized in such a way, it is never the case that one has direct contact or experience of what we think or understand to be 'God', but that God's influence is somehow propagated  through some opaque medium, referred to as a veil or indirect inspiration.

Surah 42 Shura (Advice, Consultation)
وَمَا كَانَ لِبَشَرٍ أَن يُكَلِّمَهُ اللَّهُ إِلَّا وَحْيًا أَوْ مِن وَرَاء حِجَابٍ
أَوْ يُرْسِلَ رَسُولًا فَيُوحِيَ بِإِذْنِهِ مَا يَشَاء
إِنَّهُ عَلِيٌّ حَكِيمٌ (42:51  

42:51 And it is never the case for a human being to receive God's Blessings/Words except as an inspiration/in a state of 'wahhy', or from behind (hidden by) a Veil;
or He Sends a Messenger to Reveal with His Permission His Will.
Indeed, He is Remote/Beyond Reproach, Wise.

Resonance Frequencies Throughout the Human Body

The physics of the thing is straight forward, no need to re-invent it, since moving to a higher dimension immediately opens up the 'viewing plane' and more information is readily available; i.e, an ant can't see the edge of the paper until it gets near it but a child holding the paper readily can see where the ant is heading, a 4th or 5th dimensional being can see through the walls of a building and deep into the body of a 3 dimensional being, not just see if their bras match their panties...

So the reminder that God is on the Highest or Ultimate Level (that means both the Greatest Hyperspace and Smallest Subspace) has all the information and we can only get close, but never reach it since God Does Not Share His Dominion with anyone, ergo we can only aspire to the penultimate...

*****INSPIRATION_CONVEYANCE*******

So much for alien technology transfer, this is how it's been coming down:

Surah 43 Az.Zukhruf
أَمْ يَحْسَبُونَ أَنَّا لَا نَسْمَعُ سِرَّهُمْ
وَنَجْوَاهُم
 بَلَى وَرُسُلُنَا لَدَيْهِمْ يَكْتُبُونَ (43:80 

Surah 53 Tur
أَمْ عِندَهُمُ الْغَيْبُ فَهُمْ يَكْتُبُونَ (52:41 
52:41 Have they knowledge of the hidden to write it down?
   
Surah 27 An.Naml (Ants)
وَإِذَا وَقَعَ الْقَوْلُ عَلَيْهِمْ
أَخْرَجْنَا لَهُمْ دَابَّةً مِّنَ الْأَرْضِ
 تُكَلِّمُهُمْ
أَنَّ النَّاسَ كَانُوا بِآيَاتِنَا لَا يُوقِنُونَ (27:82

27:82  And once Our Promise Befalls them
We Bring Out/Produce for them dabat (  دَابَّةً  beast/ride/reptile/creeping thing/excursion/travel...) from the Earth
Indeed, people (communities) are ever uncertain/unconvinced of Our Signs.

While there is still some speculation as to the exact nature of the Dabatan that arises or is created from the Earth on Judgement Day, the inference is that it is akin to the Burak of olden times--a Lightening fast Steed/Ride that  took the Prophet (pbuh) on His Night Journey (Ascension). 

Sounds like none other than that UFO_USO of modernity.

And the emphasis in Sign 27:82 is that this contrivance, whether it be an organic (beast) or inorganic (machine) machination 'speaks', reinforces the important connection between hearing and sensation/feeling deep to the core or heart of a being.

{
Modern findings have this much to say about the heart and hearing:

The sensory organ of hearing organ of Corti is a highly differentiated sensory epithelium
consists of specialized hair cells interdigitating with various types of supporting cells  – inner hair cells (IHCs), which are the primary sensory cells, and outer hair cells (OHCs) that enhance the sensitivity and frequency selectivity of hearing through an electromotile process.  


Cellular projections, stereocilia, occupy the apical surfaces of the hair cells and are interconnected by tip links and side links (see dtharb   ضَرَبْ 'dtharab', Sign 18:11, above). Stereocilia mediate the transduction of complex sound waves into electrical activity in the auditory nerve. 
The basilar membrane is a hydromechanical frequency analyzer that encodes high frequency sound at the base and low frequency sound at the apex. 
Movement of the basilar membrane results in bending of stereocilia on hair cells and opening of mechanically-gated transduction ion channels. 
Influx of potassium, K+1, from endolymph through these transduction channels depolarizes the inner hair cells, and in turn activates voltage-gated calcium, Ca+2, channels in the basal pole of the cell. 
Calcium entry triggers the release of glutamate, which generates nerve impulses in the primary auditory neurons located within the spiral ganglion. 
Voltage-gated calcium (Ca2+) channels are key transducers of membrane potential changes into intracellular Ca2+ transients that initiate many physiological events. 
There are ten members of the voltage-gated Ca2+ channel family in mammals, and they serve distinct roles in cellular signal transduction. 
The CaV1 subfamily initiates contraction, secretion, regulation of gene expression, integration of synaptic input in neurons, and synaptic transmission at ribbon synapses in specialized sensory cells. 
The CaV2 subfamily is primarily responsible for initiation of synaptic transmission at fast synapses. 
The CaV3 subfamily is important for repetitive firing of action potentials in rhythmically firing cells such as cardiac myocytes and thalamic neurons. 
There are known molecular relationships and physiological functions of  Ca2+ channel proteins and their molecular, genetic, physiological, and pharmacological properties.

As far as the heart/mind or more specifically the heart and ear connection, musical auditory stimulation is known to elicit various psychological responses, but the effects of musical auditory stimulation on physiological phenomena have not been as well studied. 


While it is indicated that harmonic musical auditory stimulation is able to improve the cardiac autonomic regulation. The process which musical auditory stimulation modulates cardiac autonomic regulation is not as well characterized for individuals with cardiovascular dysfunction as it is on autonomic nervous system (ANS) of healthy subjects . The suprachiasmatic nucleus or nuclei (SCN), is a tiny region on the brain's midline, situated directly above the optic chiasm, plays a major role in regulating the ANS, but the mechanism is not certain.

Studies show that cardiovascular, particularly skin vasomotion, and respiratory fluctuations were associated to the musical auditory stimulation profile, especially if it contained a crescendo. Specific musical auditory stimulation phrases (frequently at a rhythm of 6 cycles/min in famous arias by Verdi) may synchronize inherent cardiovascular rhythms, modulating cardiovascular control. 

This occurred regardless of respiratory modulation suggesting the possibility of direct entrainment of such rhythms, leading to speculation that some of the psychological and somatic effects of musical auditory stimulation could also be mediated by modulation or entrainment of these rhythms. One study suggested that musical auditory stimulation induces predictable physiological cardiovascular changes even in the absence of conscious reactions, which suggests that these changes may “precede” the psychological appreciation, providing a rational basis for the use of musical auditory stimulation in cardiovascular medicine.

The implications of such findings and their therapeutic value are yet to be explored, but it appears that the autonomic nervous system (ANS and activity in its targets) is exquisitely linked, bidirectionally, with the central nervous system, endocrine system, and immune system (which plays a key player in allergic reactions). ANS processes function as part of a sensitive feedback and feed-forward mechanism of the central nervous system (CNS), and it just may be that the ANS serves as the final common pathway by which musical auditory stimulation exerts a therapeutic effect on health and disease.

The ANS plays a vital role in maintaing health and the influence of the ANS on the heart is dependent on information from baroreceptors, chemoreceptors, atrial receptors, ventricular receptors, changes on the respiratory system, vasomotor system, the renin-angiotensinaldosterone system and the thermoregulatory system, among others. This neural control is closely linked to heart rate (HR) and baroreceptor reflex activity.

The exact role harmonic auditory stimulation (beat, tempo, and pitch) plays in triggering neurophysiological, psychophysiological, emotional, and behavioral responses is not clearly understood. It has been shown that white noise exposure above 50 dB enhances sympathetic activity and there is strong correlation between LF/HF ratio (low frequency-high frequency ration) and noise intensity. LF/HF ratio corresponds to the sympathetic-vagal balance, indicating that noise intensity influences cardiac autonomic regulation. 

Although the exact descending pathway responsible for the autonomic and cardiovascular effects of auditory stimulation with musical auditory stimulation are yet to be determined,  the histaminergic H3 receptor is likely to be a part of this pathway. 

The hypothalamic tuberomammillary nucleus (TMN) contains the cell bodies of histaminergic neurons, which release histamine and project to wide areas of the brain, including the SCN, which, like many areas of the brain, contains histaminergic H3 receptors. 

The neural connection between the TMN and the SCN are implicated in playing a central role in the neural pathway between auditory stimulation with musical auditory stimulation and changes in cardiac autonomic regulation, the details of the mechanism call for further study.

~~~~~~~~~~~

The veiling or obscuring of the senses is a way of describing how someone or something is essentially 'cut off' or 'isolated' from their environment, ie., the whole field of information.

Since this is a thought exercise and we are working with sources that are readily available, that may be of questionable accuracy, we can still use this tack to investigate how the isolation is taking place without the subject perceiving it. Here, we continue to assume the range of resonance frequencies in the human body are applicable as indicated in the diagram above

While we try not to be appalled at the level of misinterpretation of the concept of 'having arms and feet cut off' references in the Quran and its barbaric application up to the current time (2013 CE).

This 'cutting off' essentially has more to do with manipulating physiological coordination rather than brutalizing someone by severing functional parts of their anatomy.

In Sign 36:9, the Men at the Heights' behavior is selectively modified based on some variation on the Eye_Hand Coordination:
  • the 36 falls within the eyeball resonance frequency range ~ 20-90 Hz and 
  • the 9 within that for the arm ~ 5-10 Hz, 
  • with the legs in some flexion at the knees, a range of 2 (knees bent) to  over  20 Hz (when at a rigid stance)

The remedy for malicious theft according to Sign 5:38 is to cut off the thief's hand for the crime, a Directive from God:

Surah 5 The Table
وَالسَّارِقُ وَالسَّارِقَةُ
 فَاقْطَعُواْ أَيْدِيَهُمَا
 جَزَاء بِمَا كَسَبَا
 نَكَالاً مِّنَ اللّهِ وَاللّهُ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ (5:38  

or Sign 5:33 seeks remedy for warring against God and His Apostle(s)

إِنَّمَا جَزَاء الَّذِينَ يُحَارِبُونَ اللّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ وَيَسْعَوْنَ فِي الأَرْضِ فَسَادًا 
أَن يُقَتَّلُواْ
 أَوْ يُصَلَّبُواْ 
أَوْ تُقَطَّعَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَأَرْجُلُهُم مِّنْ خِلافٍ
أَوْ يُنفَوْاْ مِنَ الأَرْضِ
 ذَلِكَ لَهُمْ خِزْيٌ فِي الدُّنْيَا
 وَلَهُمْ فِي الآخِرَةِ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ (5:33  

That would mean to modify (by cutting off) the following resonance frequencies within the human body:
  • Functional frequency ~ (frequency Range)
  • 5 Hz ~The shoulder girdle (4-5 Hz)
  • 5 Hz ~ The arm (5-10 Hz)
  • 5 Hz~ The abdominal mass (4-8 Hz)
  • 5 Hz ~The knees when bending (2- 20 Hz)
  • 38 Hz ~ The hand (30-50 Hz) for stealing  ; 33 Hz for warring against God
  • 38 Hz ~ The Eyeball (20 -90 Hz) for stealing ; 33 Hz for warring against God
And then, let's see how Pharaoh did it for disobedience and believing in the God of Moses:

Surah 7 Al.A3raf (The Heights)
لأُقَطِّعَنَّ أَيْدِيَكُمْ وَأَرْجُلَكُم مِّنْ خِلاَفٍ
ثُمَّ لأُصَلِّبَنَّكُمْ أَجْمَعِينَ (7:124  
7:124)  (Pharaoh Says to his counselors) "I will cut off your hands and feet/legs alternately (opposite sides),
then I will crucify you altogether!
  • 7 Hz ~ Arm (5 - 10 Hz)
  • 7  Hz ~ Abdominal Mass ( 4 - 8 Hz)
  • 7 Hz ~ Bent at the knees ( 2 Hz, bent knee, to over 20 Hz, erect posture)
  • 124 ~ about 25% higher than the upper resonance frequency of the Chest Wall (50 - 100 Hz) and/or supersonic?
Surah 20 Ta. Ha
قَالَ آمَنتُمْ لَهُ قَبْلَ أَنْ آذَنَ لَكُمْ
إِنَّهُ لَكَبِيرُكُمُ الَّذِي عَلَّمَكُمُ السِّحْرَ
فَلَأُقَطِّعَنَّ أَيْدِيَكُمْ وَأَرْجُلَكُم مِّنْ خِلَافٍ
 وَلَأُصَلِّبَنَّكُمْ فِي جُذُوعِ النَّخْلِ
وَلَتَعْلَمُنَّ أَيُّنَا أَشَدُّ عَذَابًا وَأَبْقَى (20:71  

20:71) He (Pharaoh) said (to his counselors), "You follow Him (Moses) before I give you leave?
Indeed He Gains Mastery over you by teaching you magic.
So, "I will cut off your hands and feet/legs alternately (opposite sides),
and crucify you on palm tree trunks,
and you will know who it is that is most severe in punishment and more abiding.

Surah 26 Shu3'ara (Poets)
قَالَ آمَنتُمْ لَهُ قَبْلَ أَنْ آذَنَ لَكُمْ
إِنَّهُ لَكَبِيرُكُمُ الَّذِي عَلَّمَكُمُ السِّحْرَ
 فَلَسَوْفَ تَعْلَمُونَ لَأُقَطِّعَنَّ أَيْدِيَكُمْ وَأَرْجُلَكُم مِّنْ خِلَافٍ
وَلَأُصَلِّبَنَّكُمْ أَجْمَعِينَ (26:49 
26:49) He said (The Pharaoh said to his councilors), "You follow Him (Moses) before I permit you to?
He (Moses) is your leader because He taught you magic!
So, I'll teach you by cutting off your hands and feet/legs alternately (on opposite sides),
and crucify you collectively!

Probably what Pharaoh refers to as Moses having taught his counselors and court magicians magic, is what we would call 'learning something new.' (See Word Analogies below)

And on the Day of Judgment, Individuals will be cut off the one from the other (isolated from their familiar environment) in this fashion:

Surah 99 Zalzalah (Earthquake, Tremor)
يَوْمَئِذٍ يَصْدُرُ النَّاسُ أَشْتَاتًا لِّيُرَوْا أَعْمَالَهُمْ (99:6 
99:6 On that Day (of Judgment), humanity will issue forth scattered (in a Diaspora far away from their established homeland (read environment or 'planet') to see what they've done.

The word for issue or disperse forth, scattered, is ssdr  صْدُرُ , which also means breast or chest, other references to forehead, front, thorax, brow, visceral/feelings ~gut:
  • 6 Hz ~  The legs (2 - over 20 Hz) would set the pace (the position of the knees when ambulatory)
  • 6 Hz ~ The arm ( 5 - 10 Hz) possible position of the arm as they disperse forth
  • 6 Hz ~ The abdomen (4 - 8 Hz) the intensity of the feeling?
  • 99 Hz ~ The chest wall (50- 100 Hz)

Surah 108 Kawthar (Plentitude, The Heavenly Fountain 'Kawthar')
إِنَّ شَانِئَكَ هُوَ الْأَبْتَرُ (108:3
108:3 Indeed, whoever oppresses You, it is he (they that are) is cut off ( الْأَبْتَرُ  be childless, have no progeny)

  • 3 Hz ~ The legs ( 2 - over 20 Hz)
  • 108 Hz ~ okay, what is it for genitalia?


THAT'S IT!!
It's not like I can't take constructive criticism but Tom, You do it. 
{No, no. Don't taze them and knock them senseless--the idea is to subtly change the 'subtle body' and they are not supposed to sense or even notice it.}
Just modify that house arrest ankle bracelet You invented to cut off those functional frequencies and see if we can subdue some errants without taking out the hack saws...

Visual binding and resonance frequencies, as they relate to the Signs and what is 'visible' or apparent in terms of what can be immediately ascertained in one's environment.

The brain gamma wave neural oscillations is in the range 25 - 100 Hz , the average is 40 Hz.
In humans, the auditory sonic range is 20 - 20,000 Hz, the Sign numbers may or may not be weighted values (phons).
