SOMEONE CROSSING THE OCEAN IN A PLANE ACTUALLY DOES SO IN HIS MIND
lives inside his brain throughout his life, and can in no way ever step
out of it. Perceptions related to every illusion we see, every sound we
hear, every object we touch and everything we taste are the perceptions
that electrical signals form in our brain. We can never make direct
contact with the original of any illusion we see, any sound we hear or
the fruit we taste outside our brains. Throughout our lives, we watch
perceptions formed in our brains.
instance, someone who travels in a plane, crossing over oceans,
actually travels between images formed in his brain. The image and noise
of the airport, the announcements made to the passengers, the noise of
the engines, the sensation produced by a plane taxiing on a runaway,
clouds, the image of the city left behind, the oceans, the sense of
distance, the hardness of the seats, the texture of its fabric.... All
of these are perceived in the tiny visual center in the brain.
The sense of distance formed in that center, which is only a few inches
in size, on the other hand, is a great miracle created by God. Within
such images created in such a small area, God also creates a sense of
distance, perceived as if one's destination were miles away. Someone
looking at the ocean from a plane window actually watches it in his
brain from the plane in his mind. The distance between the two, on the
other hand, is a perception God creates in the human being who lives
within his brain.
this point, we encounter another important fact: The consciousness that
sees the ocean miles below, hears the noise of the engine or feels the
hardness of the seat does not consist of the cells or nerves in the
Who does perceive these sensations, then? The answer to this
question, which materialists cannot answer, is the soul God creates. It
is our soul that experiences all these sensations.
must also have a better understanding of this glorious and
unprecedented artistry, this infinite wisdom in God's creation and draw
the appropriate conclusions from this miracle of creation.
they not reflected within themselves? God did not create the heavens
and the earth and everything between them except with truth and for a
fixed term. Yet many people reject the meeting with their Lord. (Koran, 30:8)
THERE IS MATTER OUTSIDE OF US, BUT WE CAN NEVER REACH ITS ORIGINAL THROUGH OUR SENSES
someone asks you how far away the TV set is when you are watching the
late-night news, you will most probably answer, "A few feet." Yet, that
answer is far from accurate. That is because the TV set is not "a few
feet" away from you at all, but is in the sensory center in your brain.
What you see is not the television out there but an image formed in the
visual center in your brain. The signal reaching you by means of light
from the external world is transformed into electrical signals by your
cells, and these signals reaching the brain are perceived as an image.
fact is a great miracle created by God. In a tiny space made up of
flesh, lipids and proteins, God creates a colorful, bright image that
gives a true sense of depth. This is an image of perfect quality and
sharpness that has no blurriness, darkness or shift. Furthermore, in
another tiny spot in that same brain, God creates high-quality,
multi-dimensional sound with no distortion that accompanies this image
perfectly and is totally synchronized with it.
is a scientific fact that everyone actually lives in a small room in
his skull, in a tiny part of his brain. No one, no matter how much he
strives, can ever step out of that room in his brain. He can never reach
the original of the world that occurs in his brain.
scientific fact is very important in the sense that it indicates the
glorious and unprecedented creation of God. From the Prophet Adam on,
God has created separate lives in the brains of all the people that have
ever appeared on Earth, showed colorful, bright images providing a
sense of distance in the brains of billions of people and caused them to
hear the loveliest songs, the roaring of a waterfall, thunder or the
buzzing of a bee. More strikingly, God created all such perceptions with
such delicate harmony and perfection that the majority of these people
never realized that they actually heard the sounds or watched the images
in their brains. They always assumed that they saw the actual things
that existed in the outside world, talked to them or touched them.
Never forget this important truth:
We can never reach the original object. We can only experience what we see in our brains.
AN IMPORTANT QUESTION DARWINIST-MATERIALISTS CANNOT ANSWER:
Who Is It That Watches A Bright World, Hears Birds Singing Or Smells A Rose?
coming from the ears, eyes and nose reach the brain in the form of
electrical signals. Who is it in the brain that experiences these
electric signals as sound, smell and sensation? Inside the brain there
exists a consciousness that perceives all these without having any need
for eyes, ear or nose. To whom does this consciousness belong?
Darwinist-materialists, who believe that nothing exists except matter,
cannot answer these questions.
Never forget that it is in your power to destroy the basic claims of Darwinist-materialist ideology.
The 21st century will be the century when all these facts will be grasped and accepted.
EVERYONE LIVES HIS ENTIRE LIFE IN THE SMALL SPACE IN HIS BRAIN
is one fact everyone knows: The senses of sight, sound, smell and taste
are perceived in the brain. That is, we experience the outside world
inside us. We spend our entire lives in that small space in our brains.
We watch the outside world on the television in our brain. We smell the
electrical signals entering our brains from the external world in our
sensory centers. We again perceive the electrical signals entering our
brains from the external world as hardness. The electrical signals
entering our brains are transformed into sounds in the loudspeakers in
experience all these sensations in that room of a few cubic inches in
our brains, and all through our lives we can never step out of it. No
individual, not someone traveling from one continent to another, nor the
first man who walked on the moon, nor a farmer who has never left his
village in his life can go anywhere outside the small room in his brain.
We see oceans, woods, the sky, the Sun, the Moon, flowers and fruits,
which do exist in the external world, in this small room in our brain.
We smell them there and hear the sounds they produce in that room,
without ever making direct contact with their originals outside … Inside
the brain there is a consciousness perceiving all these sensations.
However, that conscious certainly does not belong to the nerve cells or
lipids making up the brain. This consciousness is the soul God creates.
individual who reads this obvious fact must ponder on God, the Exalted,
Who places the entire universe with all its colors in a pitch-dark
space of a few cubic inches in the brain, fear Him and take refuge in
THE TRUTH OF THE LIFE OF THIS WORLD IS THE DESTINY GOD SHOWS US IN OUR BRAINS
entire life of a human being is made up of the perceptions in his brain
revealed to him through his five senses. For instance, a person walking
on the street actually walks on the street inside his brain. His feet,
the unevenness of the pavement, the sloping road, the discomfort his
shoes cause him, the height of the curbstones, the wind and all the cars
passing by are seen and sensed in the brain.
person who rubs his eye because of an irritating dust particle in it
will grasp this reality. When he rubs his eye, he sees the image of the
road, trees and cars moving up and down. This is similar to the shifting
of images on the television. That system also exists in the brain. In
this sense, a person is similar to someone watching television. In the
same way that he watches television programs, he also watches what is
provided for him, through his senses, in his brain.
being the case, who is it that sees these images in his brain or feels
the cold wind on his face? God informs us that it is the SOUL that
perceives these sensations. What we call "our life" is actually what our
Lord shows our soul in accordance with the destiny He creates for us.
