One's personality is both a composition and reflection, but if I have to choose one of them, I will choose reflection as the "self" is more important to me than "me". One's composition may change, walking across the cultural landscapes and climbing the social ladder but one's self is tied to one's reflections. The fun part is that reflections are not bound to "Time-Space" barriers ( it is not time-space) and respective mental constructs, which have grown so thick over ages, that they had reduced the image of humans to Sisyphus, rolling different sizes of boulders on hills of different heights.… As the name of this Blog indicates, knols are my perspectives on topics of interests, sweet/bitter experiences or just doodling :)

Sophism missing the brain research (Opinion)

Sophism was a big movement in Muslim world that enriched every society that they flourished in. Unfortunately, exteremism caused a drastic decline in the sophism. Current brain research revealed that if we could switch off the left hemisphere then right hemisphere of brain forget self and becomes unite with everything surrounding us. It is exactly the experience and ideas that sophism work, look and preach. Universal brotherhood, sisterhood and being one with universe. It is the left hemisphere of the brain which gives sense of time and our individual distinctness. If sophism adapt the research in behavioral sciences and also researches in Neurology, for sure it will a come back of Sophism in Islamic world which is much needed to stop extermism.
