BedTime's Quote
"Don't ever try to live between Fear and Love, because such a way of living will lead you to hate" --[x] [Social-understanding]

Political Status: Prepared.
Psychological Status: Happy Thanks to Allah

MyNote: Do You know what drives a man like me crazy and sad?, not Love! nor Hate! But the deep painful thought of himself as a worthless single digit number in his government's statistical demographical records that can be subtracted from, multiplied by and divided by, but can never be added to Life except prisons. So many brains are wasted daily in our Arab World...I guess I would prefer the West to do outsourcing on us beside India, better than wasting our genius brains in vain and ancient traditions.

AntiNationalist Thought:
Our Arab World Image Based On Sagan's Cosmos View.

"The old appeals to racial sexual religious chauvinism to rapid nationalists fervor are beginning not to work a new conscientiousness is developing which sees the earth as a single organism and recognizes that an organism had a war with itself, is doomed", The astrobiologist, Carl Sagan said in his show Cosmos: A Personal Voyage. In fact, His book the Cosmos is based on the show. The book is the bestselling science book ever published in the English language. Carl Sagan views on the universe are so astonishing. I might not agree with him in some topics like Religion and the topic of God's existence, he might had been an atheist however he was really a deep genius thinker. His final chapter of his book The Cosmos, Who Speaks For Earth, he wrote:

"…The civilization now in jeopardy is all humanity. As the ancient myth makers knew, we are children equally of the earth and sky. In our tenure of this planet, we have accumulated dangerous, evolutionary baggage -- propensities for aggression and ritual, submission to leaders, hostility to outsiders, all of which puts our survival in some doubt. We have also acquired compassion for others, love for our children, a desire to learn from history and experience, and a great, soaring passionate intelligence -- the clear tools for our continued survival and prosperity.

Which aspects of our nature will prevail is uncertain, particularly when our visions and prospects are bound to one small part of the small planet earth. But, up and in the cosmos an inescapable perspective awaits. National boundaries are not evidenced when we view the earth from space. Fanatic ethnic or religious or national identifications are a little difficult to support when we see our planet as a fragile, blue crescent fading to become an inconspicuous point of light against the bastion and citadel of the stars."

If you think deeply about what he wrote, and look around at your family, your friends, your neighbors, your community and the tribes living within in a a big city surrounded by many small villages...All look united and divided in the same time, friendly to some and hostile to another depending on their nationalistic tribalistic social ideologies.... I guess you'll realize that our Arab World we are living in is just ludicrous.

Good Night Dear Readers
