My statement

This equation holds true for all real values of x and y....

Pensées de le Esprit

لَا الشَّمْسُ يَنبَغِي لَهَا أَن تُدْرِكَ الْقَمَرَ وَلَا اللَّيْلُ سَابِقُ النَّهَارِ وَكُلٌّ فِي
فَلَكٍ يَسْبَحُونَ

"It is not for the sun to overtake the moon, nor does the night outstrip the day. They all float, each in an orbit."
Holy Qur'aan Surah Yaseen, Ayah 40 (Chapter 41, Verse 40)

Now I'm no great Islamic Scholar or Tafseer expert, but this particular verse always reminds me that there is a time and place for all things in life. Everything happens within it's own cycles as is meant to be. The world is a vast and complex space, despite the chaos humans create, there is a natural order and a logic which we will never understand.

The world and life as we know it is a miracle and a beauty. And I think that as human beings we tend to be so caught up in our own pettiness that we ignore the little things and our own insignificance in terms of the larger whole. Sometimes we might think we're on the wrong road or we've taken the longer route and wonder what if we'd turned right at the intersection instead of left. But that is because we're human and I doubt we ever truely know why we are where we are and for what reason.

I'm not too much of a fatalist, because I do believe that although there are some things which are destined to be, we do have a large hand in giving our destiny a kick start. You know, every time I hear the word ''destiny'' I see that pained, mock serious look on Brandon Flowers's face. That's beside the point, anyways, I really do feel that we are nothings merely part of the machinery of the universe, cogs in the wheel of life if you will. And we should appreciate where we are now and what we have because we are lucky enough to have a God out there who is Most Merciful.

Just a random thought which I had, thought I'd put it out to the jury since I'm not much of an autocrat.


PS I know I'm probably going to get another lot of emails from various self righteous and parasitic imbeciles commenting on the nature of my previous post and now on this one, so I put the disclaimer out now and say please get a life. Some of us are real human beings (though judging by the species we'd much rather be elves or vampires).
