A Point Of You

Surah 94 Ash.Sharh (The Splitting, Slicing, Opening Up...)
أَلَمْ نَشْرَحْ لَكَ صَدْرَكَ (94:1
وَوَضَعْنَا عَنكَ وِزْرَكَ (94:2
الَّذِي أَنقَضَ ظَهْرَكَ (94:3
وَرَفَعْنَا لَكَ ذِكْرَكَ (94:4
فَإِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا (94:5
إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا (94:6
فَإِذَا فَرَغْتَ فَانصَبْ (94:7
وَإِلَى رَبِّكَ فَارْغَبْ (94:8

94:1) Did We not Expound upon your feelings/perceptions (literally, Had We Not Opened Up Your Breast/Chest)
94:2) And removed your burden
94:3) That weighed heavily on your back
94:4) And amplified your remembrance
94:5) For with every hardship comes ease
94:6)  Indeed, with every hardship comes ease
94:7) So, once you are free (of burdens), remain steadfast
94:8) And turn your attention to your Lord's Desires


What else could have prompted the long drive? Did you get lost on the green?

الَّذِينَ يَتَرَبَّصُونَ بِكُمْ فَإِن كَانَ لَكُمْ فَتْحٌ مِّنَ اللّهِ
قَالُواْ أَلَمْ نَكُن مَّعَكُمْ وَإِن كَانَ لِلْكَافِرِينَ نَصِيبٌ قَالُواْ أَلَمْ نَسْتَحْوِذْ عَلَيْكُمْ

How's that for Top Secret--Ayeh 4:141 (Quranic Verse 4:141) was posted in the interest to allay any fears that this information can be  put to any viable use by those it is not intended for, and the fact that I am growing weary (wary, leary,  whatever means perturbed and tired of following'em around the www) of some pages and posts found at A Page In The Life being redirected to porn sites.

..when the Sun moves off-center (Taqwir)

Refer to The World Screwing Around
And Surah 81 Taqwir
How The Sun and Planets Really Travel, Interesting Visual Here (www.djsadhu.com).
Note: Earth 1 in the previous orbit around the Sun, prior to translating helically along with the Sun to Earth 2 position

The Sun at that point would appear to have moved Off-Center just as described in Surah 81Taqwir.

The second Focal point F2 is actually very faint and when drawn to scale is not that far off from the Center of Mass of the Sun (the distance is usually exaggerated for illustrative purposes), and may not be in the planar elliptical orbit at all, as sometimes rendered.


Comments are welcome, only if they are relevant to this premise.

{As an aside: 
Surah 6 Al.An3'am (Cattle, Chattle)
وَكَذَلِكَ جَعَلْنَا لِكُلِّ نِبِيٍّ عَدُوًّا شَيَاطِينَ الإِنسِ وَالْجِنِّ
 يُوحِي بَعْضُهُمْ إِلَى بَعْضٍ زُخْرُفَ الْقَوْلِ غُرُورًا
 وَلَوْ شَاء رَبُّكَ مَا فَعَلُوهُ فَذَرْهُمْ وَمَا يَفْتَرُونَ  (6:112  
6:112) And in this manner We Created for every messenger enemies, demons from humans and jinn (invisible forces); they awaken/stir each other amongst each other with fetching sayings meant to tempt. Had Your Sustainer Willed it otherwise He would not have done this, so ignore them and all their false devising (imagery).

You know, SteveH, I think you should stop with the microwave audible effects

So what if you are a self-professed asshole  (this joke has run its course), and you are very wealthy and have nothing better to do except to equip yourself and your valiant Starbucks computer bandits with headphones and this stale harassment technique. 

The fact is neither you nor they are adding anything joyful or beneficial to my life and after last Sunday's abusive treatment at the hands of your cohorts in an Emergency Room setting, I think you should just leave me alone (and return my belongings (including my iPhone) that you had them take from me under duress--and thanks for playing my iTunes at Starbucks Cross Creek Road). 

You have a very beautiful life and a beautiful wife and 3 strapping young lads to call your own--so leave me alone and stop disturbing the Peace.  

And if I ever hear You or anyone refer to me as your 13th wife, that means that You, Ya-Sulaieman, have broken a promise to me, like when did that ever happen? {And here's what Your one wife had to say about it--'You've had 1 too many, don't come back without that one!'}

But evidenced by the massive deployment of Your forces, either You cannot get them under control or the more likely explanation is that You are thinning out the field.

Surah 27 An.Naml (The Ants)
وَحُشِرَ لِسُلَيْمَانَ جُنُودُهُ مِنَ الْجِنِّ وَالْإِنسِ وَالطَّيْرِ فَهُمْ يُوزَعُونَ (27:17 
27:17) And gathered onto Solomon His forces of Jinn and Humanity and that which flies (Al.tayiri) and they were arrayed in order (battle order, ranks). (See Surah 37)

Surah 34 Saba' (Sheebah)
وَلِسُلَيْمَانَ الرِّيحَ غُدُوُّهَا شَهْرٌ وَرَوَاحُهَا شَهْرٌ
 وَأَسَلْنَا لَهُ عَيْنَ الْقِطْرِ
وَمِنَ الْجِنِّ مَن يَعْمَلُ بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ بِإِذْنِ رَبِّهِ
وَمَن يَزِغْ مِنْهُمْ عَنْ أَمْرِنَا نُذِقْهُ مِنْ عَذَابِ السَّعِيرِ (34:12
34:12 And Solomon's Command of the Winds; their course coming on the morrow one month (journey) and going one month (journey); and We Bestowed upon Him 'determining rainstorms'  (var., 'the eye of the storm,' 'how to gauge distance/diameter,' 'a fount of molten copper,' 'percolating wells, i.e, underground wells, oil, natural gas, water, mineral baths, etc.');
And to know the workings of the Jinn by His Lord's Leave;
And whoever amongst them deviates from Our Command, tastes of an austere punishment.

 فَلَمَّا قَضَيْنَا عَلَيْهِ الْمَوْتَ 
مَا دَلَّهُمْ عَلَى مَوْتِهِ إِلَّا دَابَّةُ الْأَرْضِ
 تَأْكُلُ مِنسَأَتَهُ
 فَلَمَّا خَرَّ تَبَيَّنَتِ الْجِنُّ أَن لَّوْ كَانُوا يَعْلَمُونَ الْغَيْبَ
 مَا لَبِثُوا فِي الْعَذَابِ الْمُهِينِ (34:14 
34:14) Once We Ordained death to Him (Solomon's death as a mortal),
Nothing indicated His death except dabatun (crawling creature, maybe a worm, or other beast) from the Earth that gnawed through His staff (He leaned on while seated),
And once He fell (from the chair as He leaned on His compromised staff) His death became apparent to the Jinn, had they known the Unseen/Invisible/Hidden Reality,
They would not have continued to toil in demeaning work.

Surah 41 Fussilat (Distinction, Clear Explanation)
وَقَيَّضْنَا لَهُمْ قُرَنَاء فَزَيَّنُوا لَهُم مَّا بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ
 وَحَقَّ عَلَيْهِمُ الْقَوْلُ فِي أُمَمٍ قَدْ خَلَتْ مِن قَبْلِهِم مِّنَ الْجِنِّ وَالْإِنسِ
 إِنَّهُمْ كَانُوا خَاسِرِينَ (41:25
41:25) And We Ordained to each of them (the faithless) their dual that made fair seeming to them whatever they were doing and their past deeds, and Our Promise came True throughout the Nations that had passed before them of the Jinn and Humans; indeed, they were the losers.

"Ok. Ok. You know how to drive."
May 27, 2013
Just because my men are quiet around here doesn't mean they are inactive, in fact, we aim to fight to the last man--seeing how we are already dead, anyway, it can only get better for us.

The fact is that I am not the Queen of Sheba, and I am not a Messenger, and whatever I have been going through and continue to experience feels a lot like abuse from your collective selves, and I am simply not up for that...so, I will continue to not accept any outcome where I don't come up the winner--apparently I had to earn my keep even while it seemed to the untrained eye that I labored for no immediate recompense--they actually even pitied me with their sidelong glances (apparently they hadn't seen me drive this town). 

Imagine that! And still try not to come up out of your graves laughing!

And, Ya-Suleiman, don't call after me,  'Peace!', like You are calling Your dog to come home--my Father will remind You, that particular Star always rises over Dar.al.Salam (and no, she can't be monetized or made famous or do a cover for Esquire, that's why she wonders what is up with her 'husband' and why he isn't taking care of the 'business' end). 

...And, Yes! That's exactly what the Ka'3beh is for! (That's an answer to a direct question, not a non sequitur.)
}

The Ka'3bah is central to the Hajj, where pilgrims perform either the formal Pilgrimage (Hajj) or make lesser visits off-season, an Umra, and circumambulating the structure is a major part of performing this rite.

And it was never the case, historically speaking, that anyone was ever kept from visiting Mecca and performing either the Hajj or the Umra if they were able to do it.

So, preventing anyone based on religion, race, creed, or sexual persuasion from performing this rite is highly suspect as very poor judgment and only bolsters my worst suspicion that I keep waking up on the wrong planet.

Here, I must finds the textual reference to support such a position (Sign 3:96 and 3:97), given that even my life-long friends think I had such suffering as visited on me well-deserved for my take on expiating the Quran:

Surah 3 Al'3mran 
(Jeez isUs! Family--That should stop the speculation how He went from '3esau to Jesus--how's that for the Brooklyn angle and being married to the Mob?)
3:96 إِنَّ أَوَّلَ بَيْتٍ وُضِعَ لِلنَّاسِ لَلَّذِي بِبَكَّةَ مُبَارَكًا وَهُدًى لِّلْعَالَمِينَ 
3:96 Indeed, the First Temple established (situated, affixed, connotes it was 'designed/outlined', possibly architecturally speaking) was that at Bakka (clearly this refers to the Kaaba in present day Mecca); a blessing and a guidance for all the worlds (humanity, mankind, and all of creation's creatures/communities)

3:97   فِيهِ آيَاتٌ بَيِّـنَاتٌ 

مَّقَامُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ 
وَمَن دَخَلَهُ كَانَ آمِنًا 
وَلِلّهِ عَلَى النَّاسِ حِجُّ الْبَيْتِ 
مَنِ اسْتَطَاعَ إِلَيْهِ سَبِيلاً 
وَمَن كَفَرَ فَإِنَّ الله غَنِيٌّ عَنِ الْعَالَمِينَ 
3:97 In it (The First Temple) are Clear Signs (Messages);
Ibrahim's Station,
and whoever enters it is Safe (Secure, At Peace).
And God Established the Pilgrimage for people (Nas, communities) to it;
Whoever is able to make their way to it (سَبِيلاً  sabil==travel, setting a course, etc.),
And whoever belies/blasphemes (this), truly God is Needless of the Worlds! (ie., God is not in need of His/Her/Its Own Creation and is Independent of it. Compare Sign 3:97 to John 5:41 where he writes to "I do not accept/need/want honor from humans...")

According to Signs 3:96 and 3:97, not only is visiting the Kaaba (Hajj) intended for all of creation, but it is incumbent on anyone able to make the pilgrimage. And such an undertaking is not for God's benefit, as concluded in Sign 3:97 since God is independent of and not in need of the Creation, but it  serves as a benefit to humanity and anyone or anything else that finds itself within its environs.

But my friends mean well and they are still my friends and I know they love me enough to express such opinions freely, yet they still stop just short of calling me crazy--yeah, where's the fun in that!

Besides, what is up with these Arabs that call this Kaaba, this Projected Protracted Solid Structure, A Cube? And according to Sign 3:96, it may have actually been planned that way and not just built ad hoc.

None of the sides measure the same!

A planet where Arabs don't know math or understand geometry?

Or, perhaps they already know the orientation of the projective plane from the aerial view that makes it look like the Cube it is named for on the approach.

Let's have a look, shall we?


Surah 55 Ar.Rahman (The Merciful, var. The One Who Embeds Into the Wombs)

يَا مَعْشَرَ الْجِنِّ وَالْإِنسِ
إِنِ اسْتَطَعْتُمْ أَن تَنفُذُوا مِنْ أَقْطَارِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ
فَانفُذُوا لَا تَنفُذُونَ إِلَّا بِسُلْطَانٍ (55:33  
55:33) O, company of Jinn and Humanity,
should you intend to proceed/permeate/penetrate beyond the regions/diameters of the Skies and the Earth, then pierce them; 
you cannot do so without Sanction (God's Authorization)!

See 2:127 'facing'/entry/sanction


The Kaaba with Various Stations Numbered (Abraham's Station shown as Number 7)
The Green Line indicates the beginning of the Towaf (circumambulating) at the East Corner  in a Counter-Clockwise Direction Around the Kaaba 7 times; the first 3 rounds at a fast pace and the rest at an ordinary pace.

Compare with 2- point Perspective of Cube
Let's take the Ka'3bah's height, shown in the 2-point perspective aligned with the vertical axis, as the actual height from the baseline (the ground) of the projected Cube, 13.1 m or 43 feet (the Height may actually be different along each wall, no accurate drawings available); that is to say no apparent foreshortening or elongation.

Then that assumes the true measure of the sides is 13.1 m.

The legend about the original Kaaba is that Adam had built it directly below the one in Heaven. So, calling Heaven the True Situation of the Perfected Kaaba 13.1 x 13.1 x 13.1 m (let's just say), then the one on the 'earth' is essentially the 'projected' corresponding cuboid.

And in order for the Heavenly Kaaba to be the perfect Cube implies that heaven is a hyperdimensional space and the observer, in order to see it as a perfect cube in one glance, is also in a hyperdimensional space.

But it would follow that since the earthly Kaaba is in 3-D, the hyper dimensional original could be 3-D + 1, but also 3D+2, +3 and so on, and that is only limited by our own understanding of what 'heaven' or that higher dimensional realm is.

For all we know, it could be limitless in dimension.

If we assume a Heaven of only +1 spacial dimension higher than home-Earth, we can apply dimensional analogy to understanding the projection of such a higher dimensional cuboid.

A Tesseract Projects as
3-D Volumes in 3-D space
Knowing that a three-dimensional (3-D) object is bounded by two-dimensional surfaces (2-D) and  that a 3-D cube is bounded by 6 square faces, then a four-dimensional (4-D, spacial dimension) cube, the tesseract, may be bounded by three-dimensional volumes. 

Arithmetically, it can be shown that a tesseract is indeed bounded by 8 cubes (its net). It would be interesting to see how this compares to the 2-dimensional Lusona figure with its central 8 diamond elements.

This is key to understanding how to interpret a three-dimensional projection of the tesseract

The boundaries of the tesseract project to volumes in the image, not merely two-dimensional surfaces.

Casting shadows is analogous to projecting solids.

In a 3-D world, 3-dimensional objects cast  2-dimensional shadows; and, by inference, a shadow cast in a 4-D world of a 4-D object is 3-dimensional.
"If the wireframe of a cube is lit from above, the resulting shadow is a square within a square with the corresponding corners connected. Similarly, if the wireframe of a tesseract were lit from “above” (in the fourth direction), its shadow would be that of a three-dimensional cube within another three-dimensional cube. (Note that, technically, the visual representation shown above right is actually a two-dimensional shadow of the three-dimensional shadow of the four-dimensional wireframe figure.)"--wikipedia
Understanding this, it is a simple exercise to establish the viewing angle (plane) and the coordinates of the True structure, and may help us come to grips with the fact that we regularly visit the 'shadow world' throughout our time on home-Earth, while we are blissfully oblivious to the fact of that particular matter.

Here's a guess, about 23 -37 degrees ENE and about 4-8 feet up in the air?

Just kidding, but how close did I get...

Essentially, this is an exercise in Topology--preservation of the properties of a shape as it undergoes continuous deformation (without tearing or puncture).

Being able to execute a new function, or a latent human ability, cannot be undertaken unless, on some level, its principles are understood to make sense and it can be readily envisioned.

Surah 68 Nun (ن)
ن وَالْقَلَمِ وَمَا يَسْطُرُونَ (68:1
مَا أَنتَ بِنِعْمَةِ رَبِّكَ بِمَجْنُونٍ (68:2
وَإِنَّ لَكَ لَأَجْرًا غَيْرَ مَمْنُونٍ (68:3
وَإِنَّكَ لَعَلى خُلُقٍ عَظِيمٍ (68:4
فَسَتُبْصِرُ وَيُبْصِرُونَ (68:5

68:1 Nun, By the Pen and What They Write
68:2 You are not, by Your Lord's Grace, Mad
68:3 And, indeed, Your reward is obliged (unfailing)
68:4 And You are bound toward a Sublime Creation
68:5 So watch, and they will see
68:6 Which of you is beguiled

The idea behind Sign 68:2, and it's reassuring the Messenger (pbuh) that He is not mad, occurs frequently in the Quran; apparently this reassurance was of some importance whenever His concept of the Reality He was born (borne) into was challenged to some great effect. Not so in my case, where I have come to embrace my insanity...

4.2.13

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!
