PERENNIAL PROSPERITY ELUDES PAKISTAN

The most powerful and enduring ideas also happen to be the oldest. Ideas like justice, unity and genuine democracy, ideas which have stood the test of time. The secret of a civilisation’s success as well as their rise and fall are interlinked with these very same values. This is confirmed in the Islamic holy book […]

THE WESTERN (MODERN) WORLD ENDS WHEN SUNNI ISLAM UNITES

There are laws that rule the world, and one of them is that when we are unified, nothing can stand in our way. We have seen in history countless times when this law – unification – pops up and shows its powers. At the moment, we have several examples of unification which equals power. The […]

THE DANGEROUS VACUUM THAT IS UNREQUITED LOVE

It is when we are under intense competition that we open ourselves to understanding the true nature of life. We then accept how complicated, enriching and precious life really is. Perhaps life can be described as the sum of many evolving emotions. These emotions become our memories, and this makes life very enriching, even priceless. […]

SADDAM TRIED (AND FAILED) TO UNITE THE ARABS WHILE G.W. BUSH HAS SUCCEEDED

As we enter 2009, I am realizing that George W. Bush has an important legacy. The ongoing culling of Palestinians in Gaza by the Israelis has convinced me that Bush has bequeathed to us something quite extraordinary. The massacres of Palestinians in Gaza are criminal, pure and simple. The Palestinians, of course have no way […]

THE TRAGIC PATH FROM BRAIN POWER TO BRAIN OPIATES

The human mind has no comparison in this world, even perhaps in the universe. It is simply that powerful. I would argue that it is potentially bigger and vaster than the universe. We can be certain that a huge amount of energy powers the brain, which is of course poorly understood. The brain’s potential power […]

THE PRICE IS THE POWER

After many years of rapid growth of incomes and output, there should be little doubt that an economic slowdown of some degree is now well under way in the world. In many cases, this slowdown is accompanied by inflation. Just how much a threat this inflation is posing is open to question. But we have […]

AN EXAMINATION OF THE DECEPTION INDUSTRY

The human mind is – potentially – the most powerful force in the world. It is, at the same time, the most suppressed and misunderstood and unexploited force in the world. What drives the mind and the brain is its potential, its ability to adapt and change. This potential is there before us, waiting for […]

THE EVOLUTION AND FATE OF THE SOCIAL ORDER

What is peculiar about the human mind is that it drives things forward, it demands constant and perpetual progress and what we might call a “progressive environment.” When considering human progress, we really do have few options. The only alternative to progress is to decay and perish. As for the “social order”, the laws of […]

TO REJUVENTATION AND TOTAL RESTORATION (PART TWO)

“Power creation” is not an easy job. This is why we do not see many people succeeding at it. For power creation to take place you need leaders who understand the essence and indeed mystery of power creation. Most leaders, however, have no understanding at all of power creation, at least not authentic power creation, […]

INSTRUMENTS AND TOOLS OF BRAIN EXPRESSION

There are two things which distinguish us from the animal kingdom. One is our ability to express our ideas the way no other animal can, and second is our ability to create the necessary tools that help us to do our job. These two traits define the core of human brainpower – these are our […]

BRAIN POWER SURGES IN INDIA

Needless to say, it is complacency that deprives us of reaching our full potential.  Complacency is another name for “comfort zones”, where we deceive ourselves with satisfaction that everything is running fine. We convince ourselves that the status quo is the best solution for all our predicaments. We hesitate to challenge the status quo. In […]

EXPLOITING THE FULL POWERS OF THE HUMAN HDD (HARD DISK DRIVE)

Life offers lots of opportunities. In fact, opportunities are always there, and will always be there. What we often lack is the necessary knowledge (the understanding) and skills needed for moving forward and achieving our goals. We all wish to reach our potential; we all possess this inner desire to reach for the top positions […]

BRAIN POWER SURGES IN PAKISTAN

The laws of nature are powerful and definitive. One of the most important and most fundamental is the regeneration process, the regeneration of life. In the absence of regeneration, we inevitably undergo degeneration. The brain is no exception to this law of nature. It too undergoes a regeneration process to stay fit and alive. Cells […]

WHY FEAR INTROSPECTION?

It is intriguing to see that we carry with us so much fear at all times. I do not mean just individuals, but institutions like the market-place, the media industry. In fact, all our industries and institutions are infected with fear. What is most amusing about fear is that it is often more rampant in […]

TO REJUVENATION AND TOTAL RESTORATION

History indicates that we have an innate tendency for building empires, magnificent, powerful and bigger empires.

There exists a common […]

REDEFINING THE WORD `POVERTY`

The human brain is currently undergoing a massive change. It is a physiological and psychological change, the results of which will only become apparent by the middle of this century.

FROM INCOHERENCE TO COHERENCE

Whether we want to accept the obvious or not, the fact is that we all discriminate – it is in our nature to discriminate. We adore almost everything that we discern as beautiful but we hesitate to hold the same feelings for something that we consider as ugly. The mind is selective in its choices […]

WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD FOR SOUTH ASIAN MUSLIMS?

Living under the occupation of a foreign power cannot be and should never be endorsed, nor accepted under any circumstance, because the restraining chains of occupation disallow freedom and development of a nation. National institutes and businesses are undermined and become dysfunctional under occupation. It is as if a nation has been put into a […]

THE ARABS BUY THEIR WAY INTO THE 21ST CENTURY

How and when we came to be ruled by the giants is not important, because those who come to rule inevitably become giants themselves. The first giant company (a multinational business) to rule over a nation was the Honourable East India Company (HEIC). It was established in December of 1600 by the queen of England, […]

THE FIVE PILLARS OF A FUNCTIONAL AND HEALTHY BRAIN

Given the choice, everyone and I mean everyone would like to have the privilege of ‘a head start in life’, and there is no ambivalence about this.

THE LOGIC OF THE COMING GLOBAL UPHEAVAL

The realities of life are harsh and discomforting. And there is nothing more discomforting than truth. So we seek refuge in lies. We indulge in denial, because we wish to avoid the pain of facing realities. But the problem is that we can deceive ourselves only for so long, for we cannot ignore the inevitable […]

FAILED LEADERSHIP

There is one vital entity that continuously dominates all spheres of life. That entity is energy. So vital to life, so vital to the dynamics of life that we can say with certainty that without energy there would be no life. For life to continually exist in a competitive world, it needs mobility. Life is […]

MEETING ONE’S NEMESIS (Part Two)

Life is about learning and experiences. We learn the most difficult lessons in life through experiences – experience is our greatest teacher. We value the information we gain through experiences and we keep it in our memory for decades. The brain has a big storage capacity, although the brain does discard meaningless information on a […]

MEETING ONE’S NEMESIS (Part One)

The human mind is a powerful and potent force – no, let me correct this and rephrase it. I think the human mind is full of potential and ability to become a powerful force, but is actually a sensitive and vulnerable force. At times it is too fragile for its own good. The mind is the […]

THE CLASSES THAT SUBVERT PROGRESS

In life, you are either a predator or you are prey. The predators are at the top of the food chain, chasing and luring the prey with deception. This is done cunningly and adeptly to bedazzle and psychologically blind the prey. Mesmerized and confused prey is easy to control and to overpower. This is the […]

SADDAM’S TWO CRIMES

All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them. Galileo Galilei (1564 – 1642).  Alliances are created to enhance interests, and are abandoned just as eagerly when interests shift elsewhere. In politics there is no such thing as permanent alliances, only permanent interests. Saddam Hussein (April 28, 1937 – December […]
