If you were asked this question: Who would win future of world organizations? Is it the  SCO, the OC or the NATO? Or the UN (DRC) or the NGO’s. What would be your answer? I think three or more answers come to mind:

1. This a good question! This the first answer.

2.Yes or no answer! Sharp or with comment or justification. A third answer is:

3. I want to sleep. A fourth answer is:

4. Answering by Silence, saying nothing.

Logic of answering has these or may be more options for a question. One gives you immediately the answers, another gives you more questions rather than answer. A third did not know, or is not interested to answer, and the fourth, no one will know your answer, or may guess according to their perceptions and understanding,  and give an answer for you!

Muslims in the Muslim world today, are divided according to  these options. Let me give another example of logic, a conversation between two Muslims,   one asked:

– “Why do you support the X or Y. Organization?”

– “Well !  the USA is my key.”

– “What do you mean?”

– I mean, if the USA disagree with X, or Y organization, immediately I support X and stand with it or Y, so the decision is for the USA to decide for me and gives me the clue to the right answer.

I don’t know if this is extreme logic, or dogmatic opinion! But I think it is close to reasoning, more than emotions. In Arabic we used to say, my friends enemy is not my friend, and vice versa. This is  an understandable logic. All answers have logic or justification. The logic we say is a description of mental process of logic . Justification however is a description of illogical answer most of the time, unless depending on valid tested information.  One may be described as ’empty logic’, gives you illogical answers or “empty of logic” gives you immediate answer to any question with justification. Logic sometimes is described as false or true logic, for example the statement: “ask your heart and decide your choice accordingly.” It might be false or true logic for many people. Exactly as if we say: ask your mind, and decide your choice accordingly.

Till now  we are dealing with philosophy, which is vast enough to describe all answers by millions of people around the globe. No matter how noble the aim may be, it is not a judicial logic discourse.

In Mathematics, along with ethics, logic in science is mainly a formal logic represented as an art of reasoning. True mathematical reasoning is so much more evident than it is possible to render any doctrine of logic proper. On the contrary, such difficulties as may arise concerning necessary reasoning have to be solved by the logician by reducing them to questions of mathematics, otherwise we have to live under the clouds of consciousness which indicates form and dimension.

This might bring us to a situation where we may ‘laugh or cry’ at the same time. Which is impossible for human to  perform both unless one of them was absent. The human mind was created to reason things. Obviously, too many questions in my mind to address and  ponder upon but, I feel exhausted, I feel like to sleep. This may be an illusion. It seems to me that many people around the world carry this word. By now, an Islamic civilization can agree that all matter changes may be seen, but thoughts do not follow suite, cultural hindrance of these thoughts is in place. And what is needed is only to open wide the doors for the new thoughts, the mathematical thoughts. In terms of cause and effect or consequences. But we need to apply for these three dimensions: space, time and force.

A dimension of form usually is measurable by volume or boundaries. The space between two places is also measurable. In the Muslim world, we have a space  with boundaries, and time (past and future) with unfortunately, a little dark present. Muslims are in serious need for force to regain their dignity and credibility in the world community.

What’s the nature of this force? Is it internal or external force? Or what type of force is needed, physical or mental? Or how to obtain force to make the space and time secured with dignity?

Logically speaking, every force has opposite resistance equal to it. But in many shapes. Acceptance by choice through assimilation, or rejection by force through fighting, or compromising by necessity of life as the supreme human value.   www.hasanyahya.com
