536. There is no religion higher than truth,
Neither is it merely in the phrase,
For whereas,
It hath been well said,
That the arch-flatterer,
Have intelligence,
Is a man's self,
Certainly the lover,
Is more,
I wow to free them,
The power of the faculty of attaining to,
Direct knowledge or cognition,
Without evident rational thought and inference,
To know thyself.

Serdar, Truth is not a religion. Truth is truth. Faith and Belief are truths.

"I walk alone on icy plain, for company the wind; Chill crystals drift and sparkle, a barren scene, no end." :)))
Frank John Snelling

The apprehension of innate ideas,
In mummer's plays,
An external form, appearance, or manner,
The Turkish knight,
Who sometimes has a black face,
By which,
The belief that,
All life,
Or even the whole universe living,
Or otherwise,
Taken as a whole,
Is equally valid and humanity is not the,
Center of the existence,
After the fact.

...Thank you for response Snelling :)

What are we discussing here?
The Eternal Truth?
I still don't understand what is all this about?

298. So obvious or self-evident,
As to be hardly worth mentioning,
That any valid theory of the universe,
Must be consistent,
Existence of,
Carbon-based human beings,
At this particular time and place,
In the universe,
Something that is not known,
And on which,
A great deal depends,
From the time mentioned,
Until the present time,
Under consideration,
The mediocrity principle,
Is the notion in the,
Philosophy of science,
That there is nothing special about Earth,
And by implication the human race,
Would seem,
Just like putting a,
Full-sized tragic mask,
Upon an infant boy,
Combined with the,
Additional assumption that an,
Earth-like planet,
Is a prerequisite,
For the development of,
Advanced life,
This offers,
An explanation for current lack of evidence,
Of extraterrestrial civilizations.

Thanx Serdar Anlagan,
For coming down to my level of understanding.
Is it true that only 1.5% of genes separate humans from apes? (Or was that 15%)
Chitradeep Sengupta
A Name For The Devil: Decorate Lavishly
Art forms nature,
Given, felt, or done in return,
Of another piece,
Which has been discredited in its,
Absolute form,
The idea that,
The development of an organism,
Exactly mirrors,
The evolutionary development of the,
Spinal column,
A statue so lifelike,
That the hounds,
Thought it was,
Actaeon.'re welcome Chitradeep Sengupta.

Given that there are literally billions of galaxies (with billions of stars) in the universe. The notion that there is only sentient life on Planet Earth is Humano-centric. :)))

Abelmoschus moschatus,
Lying in the understanding,
Is often inherited genious,
Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself,
But talent,
Instantly recognized genious,
In allusion to the smell of the seeds,
Not considered,
To be at risk in the wild,
Even use against venomous reptiles,
Men and other beings,
To opt for positive righteousness.

Let's name the 'Devil',
Prior to which pronounce it first,
'The (De) Will'
Consider it was the Urdu speaking's problem
The problem of nondistinction between'V' and 'W'
Or consider it came out of the Nietzsche's mouth
'The (De) Will [to power]'
Congratulations! I pronounced the Devil

The Will of a Modern Man
The Will that has no room for unconscious
The Will that is so solid and positive
Oh God, save me from this devil of positivism!
Save me from this prison of Consciousness!
And Ibn e-Sina shakes his head
'What happened?'
'Shopenhauer went to India to study 'Maya'
'Brought what? The Will'
'Let's go back to 'Maya' again!'
'Let's start 'Dreaming'!'
'Let's take those dream to Ibn al-'Arabi and then to Uncle Freud'
'Let's overcome this Will from the prayers of Freud and interpretations of 'Arabi.
