moral equation

apply to reality values, what do you get? is the last result really equal one another?
-specific resolution: wearing or not wearing any veil does not compare a bit with the amount of force into activating/deactivate it.
-general resolution: any "either,or" situation is always compared to multiplied reference forms of morality.
which means many judges for one case, each judge is assigned for one angle of it until the case gets totally exhausted because the reason scatters !

[clarification on problem: there are certain countries where veil is enforced, and in other countries, they enforce removing it]

ever after

The way I reasoned my big decisions so far is by asking myself "can I bear doing it for the rest of my life?" .. the more I think of the thing as a permanent the more I tend to avoid and stay away. I love the occurrence of something new and all the life I am into is unsettled.. yet, I wonder how can I cope with everything happens around me..?

The world around you has its demands, although you choose an extremely alien skill to the idea of routine, you still cannot escape it when it comes to what society wants you to be. why people tend to alienate the different? is it hard to come up with a different way of living?

All are questions I came up with from one question that I've heard 1,000,000 times:
"what are you going to do after graduation?"

Today I got the last adventure of TINTIN, which remained unfinished therefore the story was organized in process-like theme as drawings manuscripts. AMAZING !

I have been collecting the adventures since I was a kid and he was like my idle! I always wanted to be just like him! I love him!
only 4 are missing from my collection:
-TINTIN in The Land of Soviet (1929-1930)
-TINTIN in The Congo (1930-1931)
-Destination Moon (1950-1953)
-Explorers on the Moon (1950-1954)


صادفتني اليوم مقولة كنت سمعتها منذ زمن

إذا حار أمرك بين معنيين، و لم تدر حيث الخطأ و الصواب، فخالف هواك فإن الهوى يقود إلى ما يعاب

فما هو الهوى و كيف يميز عن الحدس، لماذا نخالفه أيا كان؟ و أين هي التجارب في هذا النهج الغريب. ما يعاب كثير كثير. و لا داعي لسرد
قصة جحا و كلام الناس. لا أعتقد أن من سمع كلام الناس عاش، و لا من خالف هواه فهم

لم الهوى مرتبط دوما بالمعصية؟ بالإمكان ان يكون اتباع الهوى في معصية الناس لا الخالق. و بذلك تكون ارادة الناس ليست بالضرورة صحيحة و احيانا تجب مخالفتها

و الا شرايكم؟

My First Poem

Black butterflies, yellow grass,
Wooden blocks gathering with class,
Shadows of trees performing mass,

White sky full of dust,
A golden carpet stricken by rust,

Green land covered with weeds,
Many trees playing with seeds,

We give values and they give not,
Things start over to be seen as lot,
The end is always an infinite dot!

The Universe on a String, Brian Greene

I've always been interested in string theory but never been able to fully understand its concept for I couldn't bring up neither examples nor possibility of applications on nature. But this lecture answered me great deal and opened a whole new room of thoughts. please watch it, it is very inspiring.

two thoughts

1.I got this message once from a female relative of mine:

A woman has strengths that amaze men. She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens. She holds happiness, love and opinions. She smiles when she feels like screaming. She sings when she feels like crying, cries when she's happy and laughs when she's afraid. Her love is unconditional! there's only one thing wrong with her, she sometimes forgets what she's worth. pass this on to every beautiful woman you know.

So is there any thing away from deception she is? Is self dishonesty becomes her praise? why such contradiction is so admired in this forward message, i can't think of that description determining the feminine beauty!

2. I think that there shouldn't be a standard law that sets a standard punishment for a generalized deed. it all depends on the situation in my point of you. I believe there is never a situation similar to the other, I know there is a long investigation to determine an innocent person from a criminal but the punishment should always be malleable to the crime. it would be more interesting for the judges to think of more judgments!

a poem

the hysterical life

and sad
desired details
and ignorant sight
adapted spaces to our gestures
defeated nature to our imaginations

and gender

the forty arrows in hand
and stupidity

penetrating a surface to another surface
the philosophy of nonsense
is the mathematics of wisdom
the multiple complexity
the binary paradox
time and space

One Day Experiment


During the day, many things happen to us in many levels, whether it is about the weather, work, games or relationships..etc. But we rarely tend to relate each to the other, and we always pass by things we no longer realize or pass by people we don't know even though we look at them or check their clothes. Many details but less care.


All senses


All the day's "things" from events to insignificant details.


1.Try to put them together as if someone wrote a film script for you to act, sensing that each detail is worth the sight of you and each wall worth the touch from you each person you pass by you relate to.
2.Try to find reason for whatever you pass by, even silly or ironic ones would do.
3.Try to relate the the unknown person you passed by with another event happened to you the same day, not in comparative manner but in sets of reasoning.


The whole experiment won't be valid if you reflect the happenings to affect you, you're not a part of what you see, what i mean is, look around you not in yourself, and relate things to each other not to your mood or feelings. It is a brain activity, once the heart enter you may not put things in control. The intention of this experiment is not to feel differently than think differently, which makes you feel good after doing it.

"A Nest -and this we understand right away- is a precarious thing, and yet it sets us to daydreaming of security" ~Gaston Bachelard in The Poetics of Space.

"What we call chaos is just patterns we haven't recognized. What we call random is just patterns we cant decipher. What we can't understand we call nonsense. What we can't read we call gibberish. There is no free will. There are no variables. There is only the inevitable." ~ Chuck Palanhiuk

The Letter that was Instantly Read.

[mind the spelling and grammar it was written as fast as the storm was]


Physiognomy (Gk. physis, nature and gnomon, judge, interpreter) is a theory based upon the idea that the assessment of the person's outer appearance, primarily the face, may give insights into one's character or personality. The term physiognomy can also refer to the general appearance of a person, object or terrain, without reference to its implied or scientific characteristics.

[i attended the mogul painting lecture in Dar Al-Athar and it was so wonderful -i must say it is one of the greatest from this season-, the lecturer was Goswami's student who is one of the great readers of Indian Paintings whom i attended a really interesting workshop with him and some of the cultural center friends. in the formerly mentioned lecture, she showed us a couple of portraits in which she referred to this field of knowledge to describe. i never heard of it and i was interested! this is its definition i'm very willing to know more about it]

Once Upon a School

Dave Eggers' wish:
"I wish that you - you personally and every creative individual and organization you know - will find a way to directly engage with a public school in your area and that you'll then tell the story of how you got involved, so that within a year we have 1,000 examples of innovative public - private partnerships."

Life Repeated,

it is another feeling we no longer sense, or are you still? it is a phenomena which can lead to a mental belief, that, the story of one's life can be repeated in another, either inherited father to son or just happened to be the same in a completely different context.

and i think it somehow coincides with an Arabic saying about the similarity of the physical features between some people: "40 born in the same look". or in another level with the theory of universals in the platonic realism.

acting... the tendency to simulate others.

then what is difference? is it only a time-related feature?
