zombie & more on atoms and protons

Zombie : The term is often figuratively applied to describe a hypnotized person bereft of consciousness and self-awareness, yet ambulant and able to respond to surrounding stimuli.

There are a lot of them out there.. my dear sisters and brothers, let's save our souls.

Sometimes I feel afraid to say much. I don't know much. Other people seem to know much more already - they don't need reminders or advice.

What am I doing? Am I doing the right thing? Saying the right thing? I continue to learn, through my mistakes.

:D The points above seem unrelated, but actually they are. Maybe, this is what you call 'spacey' - you'd have to build your own bridge linking from one point to the other. Oh well.

Okay, today's ayat to ponder upon:
"Assuredly the creation of the heavens and the earth is a greater (matter) than the creation of men; yet most men understand not. Not equal are the blind and those who (clearly) see; nor are the (equal) those who believe and work deeds of righteousness, and those who do evil. Little do ye learn by admonition!" Ghafir 40:57:58

MasyaAllah.. how true. We see from the way some of us act and talk. Some of us just don't know.

This afternoon I was just exploring further into the make up of an atom because I was talking to Fazilah about how scientist has proven 'fate'. Well, they don't use the word fate. They explained it in a scientific way in which they experimented with a proton, and how they could determine the state of a proton at any given time. Or given the state of the proton they can get the time. (something I got from Fabric of the Cosmos - Briane Green).

Man, who has spent thousands or perhaps millions of dollars creating machines and labs to study the state of a single proton, and that's how much they can do now. As such, even though they know they can identify the state of a proton at any given time, it is impossible for them with their (VERY) limited capacity to even estimate the state of a person or even a leaf, or even a coin - because they have only managed to work with single or double protons. Whereas, just a small coin, is made of of trillions of atoms and every single atom is made up of.. let's see nickel...28 protons. Can you even begin to imagine the awesomeness and the Greatness of the creations of Allah SWT?? How complex a simple matter is, and how that simple matter make up this whole world and universe.. Subhanallah.. it's beyond our grasps. Even the scientists.

Yet, many men think they are very capable, and that they know a lot. How arrogant some men are. Naudzubillah. :'(

This must be one of your soliloquy.
