These three letters have played a very crucial role in the history of mankind. Wars have been fought, bloods have been shed, books have been written, companies and places of worship have been built, all for God. And with all probability, these three letter are to remain influencing our lives for the times to come.
It seems nobody can ignore God. Even the atheist, talks of God by acknowledging disbelief in Him. Why is He is so important. Why do we need God.
To understand the need for God, we will need to promote God from a notion, from an idea to that reality that can't be denied.
To do that, let's first try to define reality. A reality is something that we know 200% or more% to be true. I know that the computer that i am typing this on is for real. I know it because i can see it. I can hear the keys as I press it. I can feel it. I can touch it. I get feedback as I type. That's reality. Reality is something that our senses can sense. Reality is something that we can experience.
Now, look at God. We don't see him. We don't hear him. We don't smell him. We don't touch him. He is just a character in religious books. But we fight wars over him and spend millions of money building places of worship for him!
Isn't that like going to war for Harry Potter or Cinderella ? Isn't that like praying to Harry Potter or Cinderella or pinocchio for your needs and praying to them to help you !
And the irony is that, we consider ourself an elite society, studying in universities, doing phd's , writing and publishing numerous papers. How are we so different from that 2 year old child who believes that he is to meet Harry Potter tomorrow.
I don't know about you. But here starts my research on God. There is feeling deep inside me that tells me that God is just not another Harry Potter but a Big Reality. Like the computer that I see in front of me, Like the Sun that we see everyday, God is a reality. God is a reality that has to be studied and understood.
Why do we need God. Why care.
It's just like Why we study science. Or humanities or any other subject for that matter. To use the knowledge to benefit us and others. Take an example of the screw driver. There is no point in just keeping the screw driver in our pocket, feeling it from time to time, kissing it and polishing it. We have to study what we can do with it, how we can use it. Once we find out that the screw driver can be used to turn screws that can be used to fit things together, then our life changes dramatically. We learned how to use the tool.
Similarly, If only we can find God, try to communicate with Him. Imagine the Power that it will give us. If we can spend millions of dollars trying to find aliens and trying to communicate with them, why can't we do the same for God, I wonder.
So, the next research Topic is - God, from an idea to a reality.
I remember the times when i used to write a symbian c++ application and get fascinated that it runs on a phone. Then came the J2ME's. Little did I think back then that I would be making my living as a mobile app developer today. Thank you Symbian and Nokia for giving me the first phone experience.
Its sad to see these pages today.
Here is a collaborative task to tag places present in the Quran. If you tumble upon a place during your Quran recitation, please tag it here :-
Twinkle Twinkle Little Seconds
How I wonder what you are
Up Above the worlds so prime
Like a diamond in the Time.
Click the url below to know your time in seconds
Have you asked for the time? Did you get a reply that sounded like 'Quarter past the hour' or 'Its 10 30 AM' or '5 to 11' or similar.
Have you set Reminders on your phone or PC? Did you set it for 11:30 tomorrow or some other day , some other time.
What time do you reach office ? Is it 9:00 AM or 9 o' clock.
Isn't it AMAZING that most of the time we just speak about the Hour or Minute and completely forget about the Seconds. Seconds are most neglected part of time in Human History. No body cares about them. No body even talks about them. Everybody ignores them. They are the minority species that don't count at all. The only time we consider them is when we say ' Just a sec' on a skype chat, only to mean a few hours of time. And today, there are even clocks and watches that doesn't show the seconds hand at all. All these facts point to an irrefutable truth that Seconds are on the verge of extinction.
My dear friends, its time to change. Its time to change the way we look at time. Its time to change the way we perceive time. Things are happening so fast that there is no more the Hour or the Minute. Life happens very fast today that an Hour or Minute is not enough to track it.
It's for this purpose that i developed this app - Seconds. Seconds displays the time, in Seconds. There are no more Hours and No more minutes. Its Just Seconds. We have 86400 seconds in a day. Watch it swim through life.
Try it out. Feel the difference that it makes in your life. This app is for those who care about time. For those whom each second counts.
This app can help you appreciate the very short time that we have. You will be amazed with things that you can accomplish in a few seconds. You will wonder at the things that happen each second. You will notice that Life was in fact full of seconds.
When Time Matters!
For the Heart that beats each second.
A tribute to Seconds.
