Lights & Shadows – IMRAN™

Posted by imrananwar on January 18, 2016

Lights & Shadows. Embrace them all, as I embrace them all, my loves. For without their total embrace we would not have these mind blowing visions turn into reality in front of our eyes, filling all our senses, covering even the giant expanse of the sea with reflections like goosebumps as it experiences the blending of the two right above it, reflecting on it, making it even deeper filled with passion to unleash.

Music, time lapse photography, and video I created at tonight’s stunning sunset.

Boating, Flying, Sailing, Kayaking, Fishing. You name it, you can do it. Another stunning “winter” weekend on Tampa Bay in mid-January experienced from my blessed home at Apollo Beach, Florida.

i/Robot Vs i(Need3)Robot(s)! – IMRAN™

Posted by imrananwar on January 14, 2016

When the lapdog henchmen treasonous military officials under dead dog dictator General Zia had me arrested and court martial(ed) for being a student leader opposed to his CIA-backed, US-funded, fundamentalist-creating, government, I was among several people thrown in Kot Lakhpat Prison, in Lahore, Pakistan… of course after being beaten up quite well by 6 cops, sentenced ostensibly to 2 years hard labor without any defense allowed by some two-bit colonel in Summary Military Court (SMC37), shackled and thrown off a truck on reaching prison…the amazing thing was how my mind immediately started looking forward to making that a positive experience. I immediately decided I would request 3 things to be sent to me.

These would be sheets of paper and some pens so I could write a book (still not done since 1982 LOL), learn to play #music (with the ground breaking Casio VL-1) and, yes, a Rubik’s Cube so I could learn to solve it. In the decades since, I wrote a lot but did not actually publish a book, I made a music CD but did not actually learn to play piano or guitar, but one thing I did not even get to try much… the Cube.

Good thing I waited so long, as you can see from this video, when even a rudimentary robot can effortlessly solve it. Auto-Melody and Accompaniment & Tune programs already exist in music, making untalented people like me sound tolerable. Now all I have to do is wait for the one that will take all my writings, organize them and publish a couple of books for me. LOL

FireBall Sky, Flaming Horizon, Pink Cloud Cruise – IMRAN™

Posted by imrananwar on January 12, 2016

FireBall Sky, Flaming Horizon, Pink Cloud Cruise - IMRAN™

This cruise ship was literally more than 20 miles away when I captured it going past where the sun was totally behind it and clouds. The Nikon D300 handheld photo at 300/450mm eq. zoom shows the magic even of “dull” sunsets over Tampa Bay, seen from my blessed home at Apollo Beach. The trees to the left are straight across from my home but a long drive to get to at a popular state park, at the edge of the peninsula there.

Does Science Prevent Or Prove The Existence Of God? – IMRAN™

Posted by imrananwar on January 7, 2016

“Afalaa Tatafakaroon”. Will You Not Think? That is a line in the Holy Quran .

I pray Oh God, Help Us Understand The Secrets Of Science & The Universe, So We Understand You!

I am sure other holy books have similar statements about using our minds. But for some reason, a lot that modern organized religions seem to be do is make people close their minds and blindly follow whatever some smooth talking preachers built up as ‘The Truth‘ over the last few centuries. The truth is, we are far from understanding the ultimate truths of the Universe .

I am sure you are among the many educated people who believe in Science but also believe in God the Omnipotent Creator. “Science Increasingly Makes the Case for God” is an interesting article though it does not have enough information to fully live up to its headline, but it is a useful point of reference in The Wall Street Journal.

I’ve always believed that not only is the truth out there, but also that is it not going to be one or other extreme of Science No God versus God No Evolution etc. Instead, it will be a combination or the two, or likely, even of things we do not even yet comprehend which do not fall under science or religion .

The more I studied science and even engineering , the more ridiculous it seemed to me to believe in pure random creation of the universe, purely randomly leading to Earth ‘s creation, purely randomly leading to life and purely randomly leading to humans.

How many times do I have smash some rubber, glass, steel, carbon fiber, and plastic together to create a perfect Ferrari ? I refuse to believe that any of my beloved beautiful loves and their gifts of unconditional love submitted to me, or for that matter, the perfection of Charlize Theron, are random accidents. 😉

Nor do I blindly believe that some texts collected over the last 2000 years when people did not even understand the nature of science, are somehow the most accurate depictions of the Universe.

They are powerful books with stories to help us ideally be better human beings (if you take out the parts about killing others that almost all the books of the time command).

No, people, the earth is more than 5000 years old, just like the sun does NOT revolve around the earth. There IS evolution that takes place and genetic changes and mutations that are being recorded by science based on our current state of life and the planet. But, no, evolution is likely not the source of the perfect imperfection we call human life.

In their insistence of There Is No God, it seems that even supposedly people gets almost as rabidly fanatical as any Bible-thumping persons who believe that God created the Earth 5000 years ago or something like that, refuting evolution, while believing a man could walk on water and bring the dead back to life, and more.

Many believe in angels too. The truth is likely a combination of things is a blend of the two and maybe even more. Maybe God is the Creator of this Universe, as the grand designer of his project… maybe Angels are his engineers, and project managers,… maybe the day he shuts down the project for recycling is the day of judgement.

But, then, who does he work for? Who created HIM? And what giant box does the Universe fit inside that may be part of a larger Multiverse , which may be one of many in an Omniverse … and so on.

Knowing the infinite depth of our ignorance, even our inability to fathom the concepts that would entail, is another of the gifts of the Creator, to use our MINDS to even measure what we do NOT know.

We should not just blindly parrot things we were religiously brainwashed into believing as children . We must, instead, try to figure out the mysteries of science, if we are to ever figure out the mystery of the universe, which in turn may help us get closer to understanding the mystery of the most supreme scientist of all, God!

What do you think?
