The incident is tragic. Kill the innocent just to prove a point. This makes freedom a double edged sword. It has its positive and negative effect on our society. Not just in America.

Hi Espardo,

Many thanks for your comment. Thank you for joining us.

You are right, but late! Sorry, let me be rude enough to say that you are late my dear friend! Wisdom is knowing before experiencing! At least guessing before experiencing!

When we were criticizing about the unlimited(apparently unlimited) freedom in the West and its disadvantages, some people used to call us retro, undeveloped or things like that. Human beings are social creatures, so absolute freedom sounds ridiculous. An individual can be free as long as their freedom doesn't threaten my freedom. However, we are selfish. What can control my selfishness, greed and ambitiousness? You may say, 'laws', but who makes laws? People, yes, but what will happen if some selfish people make laws? This is one of the main drawbacks of the unrestricted(absolute) freedom.

I called it 'absolute freedom', but fact is something else. As a matter of fact, there is no freedom in the West? How? Well, when some singers, actors, actresses, fashion designers, football players, companies etc. keep telling us: This is what you like. This is what you must be like. This is what you look for. This is where you should go. This is what you should do. This is what you should wear, eat, ..." only brainwashed people believe that they are free! Nobody is free when thousands TV channels are continuously bombarding people with signals(forcing people to do in accordance with what is showed)! In fact, satellite TV channels make decision about our lives! When we are not allowed to think, without being biased towards something, it is slavery in a modern shape, not freedom!

That's absolutely right my dear friend, 'freedom is a two-edged sword', but I am sorry to say that 'you are late'! Many years ago, when we were warning the West over those disadvantages of materialist philosophy, some people used to laugh at us and call us black-haired, retro, unimproved, narrow-minded and things sort that! Wisdom is prevention from a tragedy, taking guess about the probable rain by looking at the cloudy sky and then taking umbrella! After getting wet under the rain, although looking for an umbrella sounds reasonable and logical, it is late!

What is the solution then? I have no time to write about the solution now. I have to leave. But, to say briefly, I believe, what human beings need for a good life(good life is moving towards perfection) is said by God(the creator of the entire universe) in the Holy books. The path is shown clearly and brightly. We have to practically follow God's instructions if we want a good life with good results. Otherwise, we will lose!

All the best,
Behnam, 16 December, 2012

Hi dear Behnam,

Hope your studies are going well. One of the most enjoyable things in the life is to understand and learn, when it comes to learning Physics the sweetness doubles. :-D Enjoy it dear. :-)

Thanks for your rich post above. I loved it. You have beautifully explained some delicate issues:

Human beings are social creatures, so absolute freedom sounds ridiculous. An individual can be free as long as their freedom doesn't threaten my freedom. However, we are selfish. What can control my selfishness, greed and ambitiousness? You may say, 'laws', but who makes laws? People, yes, but what will happen if some selfish people make laws? This is one of the main drawbacks of the unrestricted(absolute) freedom.


You are absolutely right. It's not a very difficult thing to understand, I wonder how some people ignore this point and want absolute freedom and claim it's their own right!!!

Wish you the best,
Elham

Hi Everyone,

kami again!...(uh man? why doesn't she just get to work with it? Does she really have to come and let go and then do it all over again?) LOL

A big hi to all the friends here, especially to my dearest, most wise Ostad ever, Behnam! (ke emailasham javab nemide :D)

Since tonight would be a lovely one for Iranians, and I had missed my lovely friends here a lot, so I made time to both send warm regards and say a Happy Yalda to you all.

Wish you all merry times,

Kamelia

Hi friends,

Today is the last day of the autumn. It is the shortest day of the year, so tonight is the longest one in the year (Simple mathematics is used here, since 'Daytime+Nighttime=24'! When the first one comes down, the second one must go up! Hehehehehehe... :lol: )

Iranian people call the last night of fall 'Yalda Night'! They usually sit around, eat dry nuts and fruits(To speak precisely, it is better to say 'they used to sit around and... These days mobile phones and computers don't leave free time for people to sit around together!'). {-:

You can notice that 'Yalda Night' is celebrated in some countries around Iran such as Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, etc. too. Well, in the past those countries used to belong to Iran. This means that 'Yalda Night' is an ancient traditional ceremony.

I'd like to take this opportunity to say a very warm 'Happy Yalda Night' to all Persian people! I wish you happy moments with your families. The weather is cold(the mountains and the shades are covered with snow in this part of Tehran), but I wish you warmness and long life.

I'd like to mention to a very nice saying in Farsi which is related to the last day of autumn. When some people make promise, or speak proudly about their plans and great success in the future, or when they are happy and satisfied with their short-term success, people often say 'chicks must be counted in the end of autumn'! It is maybe a little bit similar to 'don't count your chickens before they're hatched'! I am not sure! :lol:

Anyway, I hope today you have counted your chickens and have found out that you've got many of them; none of them is eaten by fox, none of them is killed by other enemies. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Finally, I'd like to say a warm 'Hello' to my dearest old friend Kami! How are you Kamelia? I hope you are happy and healthy. Thank you very much for visiting this site on such a lovely day. Happy 'Yalda Night' to you and to your family. You made me happy with your post! Thank you very much indeed. Kami is always in my thoughts!

I am sharing emails with all friends. Don't you receive emails from me? Come on! Stop kidding! LOL

Oh, something has been forgotten yet! Today(tonight in fact, according to what my mother says! "It was 'Yalda Night' and the weather was cold. People were together, but I was in a hospital to give birth to Behnam, and I did it!", my mother often says! LOL...) is my birthday. Happy Birthday Behnam! :lol: :lol: :lol:



HAPPY 'YALDA NIGHT'!


All the best,
Behnam, 20 December, 2012

Ohhh!! Happy birthday my dear and best friend Behnam, wishing you a day filled with happiness and a year filled with joy! May your dreams come true...

I wanted to surprise you and be the first one who say " Happy Birthday" to you since I never ever forget this occasion but it seems that I am too late. :-(

Be sure that you are always in my thoughts and my heart in every minutes and every second, I am completely lost without you. }:

Hi Friends

Congratulations on Yalda night,This is longest night Iranian solar year. Yalda Night as called in the Persian solar calendar is a night with especial ceremonies. Families get together on Yalda Night at the home of the elders until after midnight. They are served with dried fruits, nuts, and fruits like pomegranates and watermelons. I had to come back home from my father in law-house because of my terrible stomachache .. :lol: :lol:

Hi friends,

How are you?

I have got some questions to make this thread active, please share me your opinions:

Why many things just happen in our imagination and can't happen in the real life? Do you think that if our imagination came true, that will make us happy?

Thanks in advance.

Best wishes,
Amal

Hi Amal...

How are you my dearest dear?

I think that if our imagination came true, that will make us happy but it's although depends on the ability of this imagination to be realty.
Some of our dreams are so big and hart to be achieved because of our society or Riches or potentials, but some of our dreams are in hands if we seek to achieve them.
There is no imagination can be real without work on, as we work we achieve and this is the golden rule here.
I hope my opinion could be useful and convincing.

Have nice days...

Dear Amal,

What a nice question you have asked! Why many things can just happen in our imagination???

I actually wanna thank you. Your post made me sit here and make a lovely dream!
I had seen a mail full of pictures from winter and snow; reading your post I just imagined it has snowed here as well,and I went walking outdoors.... something very sweet happened there! What? Emmmm, oh sorry, you're not allowed there! It's secret! :lol:

What a great blessing it is, to dream! You can experience many impossible things there. I love it, oh, I love it. I live with it! Thank god, thank god........

Maybe things are even much better in reality! Who knows? Let's be positive! {-;
I often imagine myself meeting my dear friends whom I've never seen.It makes me very happy. One of my dreams is to meet Amal and take part in her wedding ceremony! I'm sure it would be as sweet as my imagination, no doubt! :-D

I'm just worried about sth. Is it wrong to live with dreams? Can it harm??? Emmmm...

Thanks for reading,

Wish you a happy warm winter,
Elham

Hi Elham,

How are you?

In my opinion, if our imagination come true, that wont make us happier because I think that no matter how big our imagination was but it still narrow and our knowledge is naive.. I believe that what god choose for us is the best and for sure god knowledge is very wide.

Sometimes, we go through a lot of bad thing " as we callit or imagine" but in fact they aren't.
Sometimes god prevents something "we wish or we want" just to give us something more beautiful, a lesson or to test our faith.

Eli! Ohh my god, imagine that you came to my wedding party.. Ohh, what a disaster it would happened! {-:
I would forget all about the groom, the people there and the party and sit and speak with you. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Anyway, I would be very happy if you came to my wedding party!!! it would be the best and happier day in my life.

Ohhhh!!!!!! I wanttttt to marry!!! I wanttt a maaaan any maaaan, Please please god please send a man to me cause I miss Elham and I am dying to meet her!!!!!!! :-( :-( :-(

Kidding a side, you know, dear, if I really want to get married this is because I want you to be happy and because someone had promised me to dance in my wedding day!!! Ohh, I was verrry happy when I heard that, what would happened to me if it became a reality?!! Imagine that!!!
I really want you to be happy..

In the end, I wish your life is more beautiful than what you have ever imagined and dreamed!

Best wishes,
Amal

Hi Amal,

How is it going? I hope all is going well with you. Unfortunately, I am busy with books these days. I am studying hard. I go to bed at about 24 almost every night. I never watch TV. I just check my mailbox and reply to some emails in case I am in the mood or have time. I love writing about your topic-imagination. That's an interesting topic. Alas, I cannot(and don't want actually) to switch from Quantum Mechanics into imagination! :lol:

Today I studied chapter 4 of 'Modern Quantum Mechanics' by J.J Sakurai. It concerns 'Symmetry in Quantum Mechanics'. This night(after posting this post) I am studying chapter 5 which is about 'Approximation Methods'. Actually, this chapter is mostly about 'Perturbation Theory'.

Please search the Net for that book and take a glance at it; just to see what I am studying these days.

It is not fair to stay silent when a good friend has introduced a topic for discussion. According to Albert Einstein, "Imagination is more important than knowledge...". Yes, it is, but it cannot be true for all people! A hungry person will imagine eating some delicious food and fresh fruits! :lol: Girls often fantasize about their future life and imaginary husband...! Children usually dream about things that they wish to have. However, I guess Einstein means scientists, researchers, designers, or people who are involved in brain-based things. Anyway, sometimes imagination gives us hope and encourages us; makes us determined in achieving our goals. That's positive side of it!

The world would be funny if our imagination comes true. Right know, I am imagining something, or imagining doing something...Oh, let's forget it! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:


Happy New Year!

All the best,
Behnam, 31 December, 2012

Hi Friends,

How are you? I hope all is going well with you. I've missed you very much.

It is Thursday, and a religious holiday in Iran. I was studying, but got tired of it. I came here to write something and to take some rest AND then to do some relaxation! I need it, you know, studying continuously makes the brain tired.

Last night, a very kind friend of mine sent me a message and wanted me to get online and have some chat. I did it. After about one month, it was a great chat-a tiredness removing one!

Let me speak about my schedule. Until 8th of January, I will study 'Advanced Quantum Mechanics'. I am studying last chapters which are extremely difficult. Last two chapters are about 'Identical Particles' and 'Scattering Theory'. These chapters, especially the latter one, are very difficult. Anyway, I have to finish this subject by 8th of January.

From 8th of January to 8th of February, I am studying 'Classical Electrodynamics' by Jakson. This subject is complicated too, but I am rather good at it. In the world of Physics 'Classical Electrodynamics' by Jakson and 'Advanced Quantum Mechanics' by Sakurai are well-known. You can easily find them on the Net. These books are taught-as text books- at many universities in the world.

From 8th of February to 7th of March, I am studying 'Modern Physics' which is simple(one week time is enough for this subject) and revising 'Quantum Mechanics'! Finally, on Friday, 8th of March, I am sitting for the most important exam in my life. Please pray for me.

You should know, the exam consists five modules, 'Professional English', 'Educational talent(intelligence)', 'Quantum Mechanics', 'Electrodynamics' and 'Modern Physics'. You should also know, I am going to study 'Photonics', which is a branch in Applied Physics. Candidates who are going to study Physics have 'Statistical Mechanics' instead of 'Modern Physics'. Other modules are the same. I don't study the first two subjects! I have no plan for them. Hehehe...

I guess, according to the last year leaflet published by the relevant organization, 30 people will be allowed to study 'Photonics'! This course is held Only at a few universities in Iran. Therefore, it is a stiff competition for candidates. It should be said that the exam covers 50 percent of the total score. The verbal interview specifies half of the total score. Some people believe that the interview specifies total score! They say, "Professors who are interviewing give good marks to their favourite candidates"! This is not fair, but who cares?

Unfortunately, the university that I've received my MSc degree-Sharif University of Technology- doesn't hold my chosen course-Photonics. Therefore, I have little chance to be accepted by interviewers at other universities(Four Universities in all over Iran). However, I am a determined person. I never let negative thoughts and false assumptions hinder me from trying. If I put my mind to something, I finish it. Nothing can stop me! Oh Oh Oh! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Dear friends, let me digress for a moment. I wanted to write "I am an experienced Physics student.' rather than 'I am a determined person'! However, the first sentence seems odd. A student cannot be experienced. Teachers can be experienced, but students cannot. Students are better to be described by some adjectives like 'studious', 'hardworking', ...! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

My wife is calling me for lunch. I have to dash quickly. Sorry for making mistakes.

All the best,
