Existence Or a Tendency to exist!

Tuesday, June 29, 2010


Ideas and thoughts sometimes behave as Photons. Their own material importance is negligible, but they are the basis of all Matter.


For a long time scientists debated over the existence of sub-atomic particles because of their very complex nature. At times assuming their role as negligible would affect the precise scientific measurements, and at other instances their existence became a difficulty to handle.


The movement of electrons in their orbits is very random. No one can be sure enough to claim which part of the orbit they are moving in and which part is just an empty space. They can be well scattered as well as attracted towards one direction only. Yet the role of these subatomic particles can not be ignored. Every material thing on Earth is made up of these particles and the amount and charges held by these particles determine the characteristics of the matter they constitute.


Same is the case with Human beings. In our world Ideas play a vital role and have a direct impact on human behavior and the direction which a society is about to take in the process of its growth. Ideas, just like sub-atomic particles, are not material themselves but are the source from which all material originates. Therefore change in Ideas can result in a variety of directions for individuals to follow.


Such is the importance of these materially non-existent things; they have a control over what is material. Hence it can be concluded that every matter is under the effect of non-matter therefore it is not Existing, in fact matter has a Tendency to Exist!

How true, logical and fascinating...mind over matter/ body/spirit connections. I like these quotes of yours: "Ideas...have a direct impact on human behavior and the direction which a society is about to take in the process of its growth. Ideas, just like sub-atomic particles, ...are the source from which all material originates. Therefore change in Ideas can result in a variety of directions...

'Such is the importance of these materially non-existent things; ...every matter is under the effect of non-matter"

Wow, and to tie it in with your post on questions and the way the discussion developed onto faith...

I may have spoken this before on the RR community? but here it is again from my tradition:

"Faith is the Substance of things hoped for...the Evidence of things not seen." like in a beautiful building starting as a question leading to a philosophy, a picture in the architect's mind, a gorgeous work of art beginning by an experience or memory of seascape, or a film imagined in the filmwriter's dreams...

Thanx so much for these fertile posts, friend.

"Ideas and thoughts sometimes behave as Photons..."

Very well put (and read it together with the excellent comment from Connie L. Nash).

Ideas have a life of their own and we need to pay more attention to that life than we have done so far. It will become easy if we start with the premise that thought and intuition are organically connected.

Thank you very much Connie!
and i love ur words "Faith is the Substance of things hoped for...the Evidence of things not seen." like in a beautiful building starting as a question leading to a philosophy, a picture in the architect's mind, a gorgeous work of art beginning by an experience or memory of seascape, or a film imagined in the filmwriter's dreams..."

Thanks again!!

Very true Khurram,
we need to shift our focus from whatever is visible to what is most important... Nourishing the most important is certainly going to contribute to the development of that what is visible....!
Both as an individual and as a society, understanding this 'organic connection' can help make a sound base for the expansion of our ideas.

hmm...Dear Namrah...again a very thought provoking post...

I liked the way you want us to consider our thoughts as photons...

When I was in my school I read that every photon has its own sphere too and every photon to get connected with other needs enough attraction to come close and once they managed to be close they keep there own sphere too...now the revolving become two folded....complex....overlaping speheres...

Its quite intresting that if the thoughts are to be treated as photons then they must have sphere...and every thought respect its sphere so much that it remain in it even mingled with others...

So they are the never dying creatures...may change their shape or identity with other thoughts collaboration....but they always kept there boundries....

Is this the reason....we find people so different???

Namrah Mahmood said...

Dear Thinking!
I think yes, that is why every one is so unique and thats y we sometimes find people with interests that overlaps our interests.... just like sometimes when the photons bond together they form shared orbitals! These shared orbitals can be the different Schools of thought that we can see around us.
Thanks for coming dear!

Comparing photos with thoughts seems interesting :)

Every particle has anti-particle , having charges like negative and positive but Photon is unique! It is a complete particle. Scientists say that there is no other anti-particle of photon but only itself.

I was just thinking about 'thought'. What about negative and positive thoughts?

Namrah Mahmood said...

Dear Riz
U raised interesting point about thoughts.
Scientists have discovered that Photons exhibits a DUAL nature. They show both wave-like and particle-like properties. This DUAL nature makes A COMPLETE UNIT of Photon. Similarly i believe that in a way negative thoughts provides a stimulus for positive thoughts, so they also make a complete unit of their own.
If negative and positive thoughts stop 'supplementing' each other and one becomes more important than the other, a reaction takes place where the stronger one wins, but without the presence of the other 'type' of thought, the 'winner' one can not stay active for long, perhaps that is the reason why Satan had to accompany Adam from the first day, so as to help Adam grow!!
what do u say? please let me know :)
Thanks for coming.
