CLASSIFICATION OF KNOWLEDGE
Jan Mohammad from Karachi writes:
I would like to have the answers to a few questions of mine, in the light of the Holy Quran. I understand that answers to these questions will throw light on those aspects of spiritualism which had remained unexplored and people having similar questions will also benefit from
If we could relay our thoughts and can receive the thoughts of others, as it is claimed in telepathy, then why is it not used in investigations of crimes and detection of criminals to catch the culprits by reading their minds?
Second question is that if by performing Muraqbah when the inner sight could be activated then why can’t we find that why and when the pyramids of Egypt were constructed and how were such heavy stones carried there for their building?
Answer: Before we dwell on the answer to this question, it would be more appropriate to see how many types of knowledge is available for study. If all the arts and sciences taught and studied in the world are examined we can classify them into three main categories.
Physical sciences; Psychological sciences, and Para-psychological sciences.
All the deeds and action that are performed and studied in a limited sphere and are related with matter and the material world only are classified as physical sciences, or to say, all the sciences that remain confirmed in the material shell and focused only for matter and the material world are the physical sciences.
Psychology is that knowledge which is operative at the sub-level or the background of the physical phenomena. This knowledge is composed of the study of thoughts, imaginations, concepts and sentiments. When the thoughts keep on transferring smoothly to the sphere
of physical realm, man remains a symbol of healthy thoughts and if some obstruction or breakage takes place in the flow of this chain of thoughts one becomes a psychological patient and the physical realm encircles the thoughts of such person.
Para-psychology is the name of that basis of the knowledge which could very rightly be called the actual source of information. Technically it is that agency which is operative in background of the unconscious.
Now, this could be said that the whole body of the man’s knowledge is composed of three circles; conscious, unconscious and the ultra-unconscious. When we happen to come in contact with any phenomenal existence we have to cross these three circles, that is, first of all we receive information about something then imagination constructs its features and then that thing is finally displayed before our eyes as a manifested item. To explain this thing we can say that when we ponder about various manifestations of the cosmos we conclude that the information or the thought is the common factor in every existent. For instance, every man, animal, plant and inanimate thing considers water as water and treats it as water. No one takes it for anything else. Similarly the fire is fire for every creature and just as man tries
to avoid the burning from fire every other creature like goat, birds, beasts and insects also try to avoid the fire alike. If one likes the sweet things the other may not be in agreement with him and might be in favor of salty things but both will be calling the salt as salt and sugar as sugar, No one will mistake the salt for sugar.
Now this also is a fact that on the one hand man has semblance of thoughts and imaginations and on the other he has the divine right of ascribing meanings of his choice to the thoughts perceived. This right of ascribing meaning to the perceived thoughts is that action which either renders someone liable of reward or punishment. Action of fire, for instance, is to bum. When it is used for the welfare of people; in cooking food etc. it is considered as a virtuous act. And, if this fire is used for some destructive purpose; for putting the houses of the people on fire then it is an evil and punishable act.
According to the spiritualist, transference of thoughts amongst creatures is the life. We recognize and acknowledge the existence of the other creatures only because the thoughts associated with other persons are transferring to us. If the thoughts of Tom are not displayed on the screen of Dick’s mind, Dick will never be able to identify and recognize Tom. Similarly, if the waves active in a tree and responsible for the existence of the tree do not transfer to man, man cannot recognize the tree nor can he acknowledge existence of the tree.
Recognition or acknowledgement of one’s existence by the other is based upon the act of seeing. Seeing and understanding is also of two types. One is direct and the other is indirect. Indirect seeing is that when we appoint two being; the object and the subject, the observer and the observed. When a man is looking at a goat he understands that he is seeing the goat. This seeing is indirect seeing. The other type of seeing is that the goat is looking at us and we are observing the sight of goat. Or to say, the waves responsible for the existence or the goat’s life are reflected upon the screen of our mind in the form of an information. Mind transfers these waves into certain features and when these features are perceived by the conscious we start seeing the goat. We do not see the goat but in fact we see the picture of the goat formed on the screen of our own mind by the waves transferred there from the goat. Now this is the direct seeing.
According to the spiritual sciences only direct seeing is real and indirect seeing is fiction. This statement of Allah in the Holy Quran demands ponderous contemplation where Allah is telling the Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) “And you are seeing them looking at you but they are not seeing anything.” Contemplation on this holy verse reveals that Allah is telling that though the people are looking towards the Holy Prophet (PBUH) but they cannot see the Divine and holy waves functional in the august person of the Holy Prophet (PBUH). Therefore their seeing is altogether refuted by Allah. Their ignorance about the divine waves of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) amounts to not seeing anything. Or in Other words Allah is telling us that indirect seeing is not commendable and, therefore, we should strive to learn seeing directly.
In telepathy, too, it is desired that one should strive and struggle to acquaint himself with the method of direct seeing. When one leams to see directly, that is, he starts seeing the things on the screen of his mind, he starts seeing the things which are not even present before his eyes because after learning to transfer the waves into features one can perceive the waves of anything which he desires so. This is the basic principle of all the divine and metaphysical sciences that the waves which are responsible for production of thoughts should be conceived.
It is the secret, and a very strange one indeed that all the individuals of the universe have a hidden affinity and relationship with one another because of their thoughts and informations contained therein. But ascribing meanings to the informations and thoughts perceived is different for every one. Lion and goat both feel the hunger but for one it means eating the meat and for other it means to eat the grass.
Hypnotism and telepathy appear to be two different sciences but the basic principle of both is the same i.e. the control over the thoughts. This control over the thought is the science which enables us to transmit and receive the thoughts.
Now coming back to the question asked, that why telepathy is not used in detecting and investigating the crimes. In reply it is stated that those who are expert in telepathy basically they have a liberal mind and they are not interested in catching thieves or spies and to act police. They think that they are not supposed to interfere in the work of others. They are only Interested in minding their own business.
This fact is also experienced by those who happened to see a spiritualist that whatever was there in their minus was hinted directly or indirectly by that spiritual person.
Why and when were the pyramids built with three million cut stones of seventy tones each, installed at a height of 30 to 40 feet from the ground level. The minimum distance between the two pyramids is 15 miles and the maximum is 500 miles. It clearly means that the stones used in the construction of these pyramids were brought at least from a distance of 500 miles.
Dear brother, for the one who is versed with Muraqbah, it is not at all difficult to find out about such things but they have much higher and more sublime secrets to explore and they always remain busy in discovering the secrets and each discovery which they make forces them to advance further and further.
A sage named Rampa was versed with the transference of thought. When he was asked by the archaeologists, he revealed that people of twenty thousand years ago were more advanced than the scientists of this age. They had succeeded in inventing such inventions through which the effect of the gravitational pull on a stone could be abolished making the stones of 50-100 tones as light as a pillow of feathers. Similarly, according to Mr. Edgar Casey; a man from the world of science, these stones were installed after making, them float in the air.
All that is stated by these scholars regarding the pyramids is in strict accordance with the laws of transference of waves which we are studying as telepathy.
Shah Waliullah the great scholar and spiritualist of his age, whose hands were incapacitated by breaking the bones of his hands by the order of the then ruler to punish him instead of rewarding him for his meritorious translation of the Quran, has stated that over this material
body of flesh and bones there exists another body composed of light waves. He has denominated this body of light which is enveloping the physical body as ‘nasma’ (aura).
He has elaborately reasoned with substantiations that the real man is not this psychical body but the aura. The physical body of man is controlled by the aura. All the ailments, diseases, anxieties and disorders taking place in the psychical body of man initially take place in the aura. Diseases or anxieties are merely expressed by the physical body, that is, the physical body is a screen on which the film of the aura is being displayed. When the film is clear and free of distortions the picture displayed on the screen is also clear and sharp. In other words, if the aura is purged and cured the body automatically becomes healthy.
It has also been explained by Shah Waliullah that man is a conglomeration of thoughts and information perceived. When healthy thoughts are perceived peace and harmony becomes the eminent characteristics of life. Whereas contrary to this is the situation in which various diseases, anxieties, tensions, mental disorder and depression result because of complexity, confusion and tendency for destructiveness in thoughts. Since the science of exchange of thoughts; the telepathy deals with the knowledge of thoughts and the information perceived
therefore any one who is desirous of learning this or any allied science can not only easily protect himself from anxieties and worries but can also be instrumental in serving the fellow beings by assisting them in solving their problems. It has been proved even by the modem sciences that every thing which exists in this cosmos is based upon a very comprehensive system of waves. The variety in magnitudes of waves is responsible for the various creations that we see around us. Specific quantities of the waves at one time form the water and another set of certain quantities of the same waves create solid and concrete thing like iron or steel. Life in its totality
depends upon the network of waves. Every phenomenon of the universe is only a network of waves of various frequencies and wavelengths.
When we happen to see water it is spontaneously understood by us that it is water though it never soaks our body or mind. Similarly when we see a stone we immediately identify it as stone though its weight or hardness is yet to be felt through physical touch. According to the spiritual science, when the waves operative in an object are received in our mind we identify the object because of the waves received and analyzed in our mind. This is the principle which invariably comes under discussion when we talk about any science dealing with mind and thoughts.
In order to benefit from something properly it is necessary that we have the proper cognition of the structural formation and the reality of that particular thing. We have to have the perceptual knowledge of the waves and that should also be in our knowledge that waves are not something static and inert but they are kinetic and remain in perpetual motion. Every movement of the waves is a stimulation for the urges of the life. The urges are the basic
components and ingredients of life. Every wave has a typical force known as frequency and we can make use of that force only when we are familiar with that force. If we are not familiar with a force we cannot tame it. This very cognition and familiarity have been termed wisdom in the Quran. The
Quran says: “And we bestowed wisdom on Luqman so that he should be using it in gratitude to God. And those who make use of the gifted bestowal do so to the profit of their own souls and those who are ungrateful and do not make use of the bestowed wisdom, verily God is free from all wants, worthy of all praises.”
The Quran is the source of guidance for the whole mankind. Those who concentrate on the laws of the wisdom; the cognition and familiarity of the created things ultimately the laws of the use of the forces operative behind the phenomena of me universe are revealed upon them. This leads to a chain of ever new inventions like radio, TV, telephone, etc.
It is a proclamation of the Quran “And We sent down iron in which are many benefits for mankind.” Here the words sent down are indicative of the fact that God Created the iron. Iron; the most useful metal known to man is used in preparation of steel, implements Of war, instruments of peace and hardware of the modern technology. Iron and steel industries have proved to be the foundation of the prosperity and power of the modem manufacturing nations. It is a tragedy of the highest order that we consider the Quran only a sanctified book worthy
of our respect and reverence and do not bother to Concentrate On the formulae expounded in the Quran regarding the conquest of the universe. We simply do not try to deliberate On the formulae give in the Quran and then complain that we are left far behind in the race of progress. Those who researched and spent their days and nights in pursuit of their aim of exploring the secrets of the nature they were rewarded, irrespective of their religious association, caste, color or creed, by the Almighty Allah and they succeeded in accomplishing their missions in the last.
For the learning of physical and the metaphysical sciences one thing is common: the ability to concentrate. If one cannot concentrate on any one point he cannot reach the depths of the point. So coming back to our discussion about the waves we cannot understand the use of the force of the waves unless we have not concentrated on this point. It can be experienced that when we happen to see a flower from a distance, the impact of the beauty, fragrance, and the pleasantness associated with the flower is felt spontaneously though we have not smelled or touched the flower. Similarly when we come across a person who is having a destructive nature or has some animosity towards us we immediately feel the reaction and when we see a person who has friendly sentiments for us we feel the friendliness towards him though he may not have talked to us.
All these examples clearly indicate that certain waves travel towards our mind and cast their effects. Our mind after analyzing these waves, ascribes meanings to them and we act according to the ascribed meanings of the information.
When we start developing comprehension and understanding of the fact that every thing is based upon the wave which cannot be denominated other than the word light we start developing cognition of the structural formation of the things existing In the universe. This cognition leads us towards the learning of the control of the waves operative in the things; material and incorporeal. This control finally enable us to induce changes of our desire and choice in our environs.
