The People's Revolution in Iran

Letter to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei

Dear Sayyid:

I believe you have not answered the question, "What is supreme and why?"   As a result, you are creating instability which is the antithesis of what is necessary for life and to do business.

You were young once.  People called you Ali.  First names bring us back in time.  We can re-examine our earliest thoughts and decisions.   I believe, if you are truly to have a positive role in the future of this little planet, you must examine those thoughts and decisions that contribute to any solipsism that you harbor.  We all live in small universes of belief, but most us are not the spiritual head of a nation  [References - left column].

What is truly supreme?   Is your Assembly of Experts [1]?   Are you?  ...your teachers in Yazd [2]?   ...Qom [3]?   ...perhaps Allameh Tabatabaei [4]? ...Mesbah Yazdi [5]?

The paths you choose are problematic.   The best thinkers within the world should study every one of your writings and speeches to attempt to open a dialogue. However, are you open to dialogue?  Or, are you absolutely sure that you have the deepest truths based on the very deepest understanding of your holy book(s)?

What do we learn as a child about life?  First, it doesn't revolve around us.  It is much bigger.  And throughout our life, we attempt to learn just how big it is.  Second, we learn that the sun comes up in the morning.  There is a certain deep continuity to life.  The sciences evolved out of grasping that fact. 

Yet, even now with centuries of science and several millennium of mathematics, there are basic facts of life that most people, including Muslims, have not a clue.  Take, for example, the simple isosceles triangle.  Put four of them together and you have a tetrahedron, the most basic, three-dimensional structure in the universe.  We know very little about its internal structure, and even less about its internal octahedron.  Yet, throughout all of your holy places, basic geometries pervade the designs.

Ask anyone of your scholars, "What is the most simple structure within an octahedron?"  They will not have an easy answer.  Once they do have the answer, push them a bit.  Ask them about its meaning.  What about the hexagonal plates?  Do they see all the pentagonal cradles?  What about the perfect seven-sided object (aka Joshua's stone)? 

Now, there are very, very few within the Western cultures who can answer these questions as well.  And, even when they do, these people do not know what to do with the answers.  Simple geometries have been ignored since the 19th century's advance of calculus.

The answers here are not right or wrong. This is what is. It's foundational.  It goes beyond cultures and religions and even today's sciences.  It is the basis of our metaphorical thinking and constructions.  Within your traditions, it has a bearing on the unfolding within the Hazrat Panjetan-e-Pak [6]. 

I am disappointed that your scholars have not discovered this little key that could unlock new  wisdom. It is a very deep and magnificent well.  But, instead, what do we find there in Iran?  You have encouraged your people to adopt and further develop technology within a Western-mental construct. The technologies you are developing in Darkhovin [7] are all Western based and go back to old ideas in physics from the 1930s and 1940s. 

Why not lead the West by understanding science and technology even more profoundly?  How difficult would it be to see chemical bonding in a new light?  Given, as a global people, we have had this dark spot of ignorance holding us back, who better to help us break through than those who have had such a profound respect for sacred geometries for centuries (al-Biruni [8] and  Ibn Sina  (Avicenna) [9].

Yet, we all  have an ignorance, not even a simple working knowledge, of what is

Go back to those four hexagonal plates that cross through the center point of the octahedron.  Look closely at the pentagonal cradles necessarily interlocking those hexagonal plates and you could begin to see the basis of chemical bonding in new ways.  How grateful would the world be if there were new technologies that inexpensively opened a path for bonding two parts hydrogen and one-part oxygen to give us a new and virtually endless source for pure water?  How grateful would the world be to have scientists, who see even more deeply inside, grasp the very nature of the functional unification of basic energies, including gravity?

I believe those centerpoints of the octahedra within octahedra are a modulus of transformation and there even deeper mysteries are opened for all of us to begin to understand. 

My summaries [I] and [II]  of these findings are still very young.    And, I have a long ways to go.   Also, I am getting older now, and the young must see into these things and open this well to new wisdom. Notwithstanding, I have attempted to address our understanding of the Supreme in a very basic way.  Historically, we have tried to understand the nature of the Omniscient-Omnipotent-and- Omnipresent.  Those are big words.  I have approached it by simply trying to understand the nature of a perfected state within space and time.  It renders a a very simple value equation for business, for ethics, and for life. 

Hostilities, anger, and contempt are the antithesis of that value equation, the antithesis of a foundation for business, and the antithesis of belief in the Supreme.

My prayer for you and your country is that a new wisdom, an integrative understanding of life, be opened to you, and words of reconciliation are lifted up as the modus operandi for a new day and a new world.

Most sincerely,

Huge populations of people are putting their life on the line.

The response of the Iranian government to her own people who are standing up for fairness and the rule of law is the subject of this video.  Click here or on the picture. A new window will open.

The Iranian government's response to their people is that government's own self-condemnation, an exposure of  their basic flaws, fundamental weaknesses, and a confirmation that they have failed to understand history,  first principles, and their holiest writings.

The current leadership is not a government.  It is a totalitarian, rather sadistic state.  Torture and extreme cruelty are part of their modus operandi. It is the base of operations of  a very real satanic force within our world.

There are hundreds of videos from the people of Iran.  Most are too difficult to watch.  These videos show a government completely out of touch with reality and with no respect for human life whatsoever.  This current government's  cruelty is utter depravity.

References for the letter (right column) to their Ayatollah

Most every link goes to a discussion page within Wikipedia.  These discussions are all negotiated by many historical points of view and the links will not arbitrarily be changed.

We begin with the Wiki discussion about Ali Khamenei.

[1]  The Assembly of Experts:  Iran's 86 experts, Mujtahis, or Islamic scholars, who are charged with selecting (and even removing) the Supreme Leader of Iran.

[2]  Yazd: The childhood home of Ali Khamenei with its great buildings and architecturethe birthplace of Zoroastrianism.

[3]   Qom: The city, just an hour's drive south of Tehran, is largest center for Shi'a scholarship and theological studies in the world.

[4] Seyyed Muhammad Husayn Tabatabaei:  He was one of the most prominent scholars among theologians and philosopher within contemporary Shia Islam.  He died in 1981.

[5] Ayatollah Mohammad Taghi Mesbah Yazdi:  Born in Yazd in 1934, he is part of the largest group of Shi'a Muslims known as the Twelvers. This Shi'a cleric and politician is widely seen as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's spiritual adviser. He is also a member of Iran's Assembly of Experts.

[6}  Hazrat Panjetan-e-Pak: Here are the five pillars that are the foundation of Islam

[7]  Darkhovin: The continuation of the project started by the Shah of  Iran with the help of the the USA's Atoms for Peace program which brought the first 5 megawatt nuclear research reactor online in 1967 using high-enriched uranium.

[8]  Abu Rayhan Muhammad ibn Ahmad Biruni (or Alberuni or Al Beruni): He was one of the earliest exponents of the experimental scientific method, particularly in mechanics. Said by many to be one of the greatest scientific minds of history, we are researching to see if he knew what the simple internal structure of the octahedron is.   Here is just one reference.

[9] Ibn Sina  (Avicenna):  A mathematician, physicist, philosopher, he is regarded by many as the founder of modern medicine because he introduced systematic experimentation, random clinic tests, efficacy tests snd so much more.

[I] is a page about very simple first principles for science, theology, and business.

[II] is a page about that applies those simple principles to the Abrahamic faiths and atheism.
