There is little doubt that sometimes the best way to make sense of the transmission of texts, debates and commentaries is to dive deeply into codices of collected texts (majmūʿa-s) #manuscripts #Islamic #intellectual_history 1/
One good example is the majmūʿa MS Majlis-e Shūrā (Tehran) 5284 which includes ten texts mostly copied by Sulṭān Muḥammad b. ʿAlī Shāh Iṣfahānī in 962/1555 in Bharuch in West India 2/
The collection begins with some works of Jalāl al-Dīn Davānī (d. 1502) - usually called Muḥammad b. Asʿad al-Ṣiddīqī in the incipits - reflecting on Naṣīr al-Dīn al-Ṭūsī (d. 1274) works on the #intellect and #nafs_al_amr and on the logical notion of #conception_taṣawwur 3/

"Every" Trump supporter I know has looked down their nose at the riff raff at the rallies and the guys with the guns in their profile pics and the breathless fears of socialism and the war on Christmas and whatever "scandal" the evening lineup at Fox cooks up for the week.

1/
There isn't a single Trump supporter I know that, to some degree, doesn't personally look down on the caricature of what a Trump supporter is, and the people so eager to portray that self absorbed ill-informed stereotype.

2/
Customers. Real life aquaintences. Relatives. Friends. Facebook people. *All* of them the same. All of them elevating themselves above the deleterious ignorance that has become the hallmark of Trumpism.

Let me now share my thoughts on Equity Investing. Though current Equity Market crisis is attributed to CORONA VIRUS; according to me it is a combination of both CORONA VIRUS as well as excesses of the Equity markets over past 3 years due to Bubbles created thru excess Liquidity.
#MutualFund Industry has given 3 Mantras: Buy and Hold, SIP Karo Bhool Jao and Do Not Time the Markets.
If Buy & Hold was working then how come Investors stay invested only for 2-3 years in Equity asset class? After some time, SIP portfolio is nothing but Lump Sum.
It is #VOLATILITY which is becoming enemy of #Investors instead of it being their Friend. In fact, wealth is created through SIP, STP & Asset Allocation only because markets are Volatile. Will anyone adopt above strategies if markets were linear?

There are 68 million active Twitter users in America (1/5 of the total population). If the Q base is so small, what are the chances that @realDonaldTrump randomly retweeted 20 QAnon-linked Twitter accounts in just one day? #logic
@realDonaldTrump 1/5 of America is on Twitter. If the Q base was so small, why is it that in 2019 Q-related hashtags, "an average of 60,910 per day," outnumbered "other popular hashtags such as #MeToo (5,231,928 tweets in 2019) or #climatechange (7,510,311 tweets)." wired.com/story/qanon-de…

Iowa's early numbers (62% in) show:

* Sanders currently has the most votes if it were a primary (raw vote)

* Buttigieg currently has the most delegates (after alignment)

* They are in the Top 3 with Warren

* Biden in 4th - Klobuchar behind him by just 2k votes
And with Iowa numbers coming in, a few points on facts, evidence and the potentially long primary season ahead...
One: The systemic shortcomings of the Iowa caucus are *not* about "delays," or "apps."

The valid concerns about democracy, participation and diversity would apply equally to even a well run caucus.

Regardless of the veracity of the terror threat in #Kashmir, that the government used it as subterfuge to prepare the ground for its dramatic steps is now beyond question.
Yet, among all the din of jubilation and paeans to the ‘making of history’, the fact that the government most probably misled the people over the nature of a terrorist threat is now almost an irrelevant aside. #Article370 #Article35A
As the ruling party rightly anticipated, people don’t seem to mind being deceived. This acceptance to lying with a “mixture of gullibility & cynicism” is reminiscent of d totalitarian societies Hannah Arendt described in her book The Origins of Totalitarianism. How #Fascism work

Did Patel, Ambedkar really oppose Article 370?First of all, very idea that a few members of previous Cabinet can be singled out by later-day historians/politicians to prove a point is flawed, as a Cabinet is supposed to function on the principle of collective responsibility.>>
Alleged opposition of Ambedkar & Patel to Article 370 is unsustainable defence for any step taken by today’s Cabinet, simply on this ground.
2nd, document & evidence show that the then Cabinet led by former PM Nehru worked on mutual consultations on the Kashmir issue.#Kashmir >
Besides, in Nehru’s day, all powers were not centralised /concentrated in PM’s Office, as has become norm today. Patel’s biographer Rajmohan Gandhi points out: ‘Gandhi, Nehru & Patel formed a crucial triumvirate that agreed that independent India would not be a Hindu Rashtra >>

Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

What does that even mean?

WTF is wrong with these people ?!
The author doesn’t even know what the kid will look like but she’s decided : he’s black.

Stupid American race obsession and ridiculous and racist “one drop rule”!
In the USA, when you’re mixed:

- if you look black: your black
- if you look mixed: you’re black
- if you look white: you’re black

The one drop rule makes perfect sense because we all know that racial purity only goes one way. #Logic

“The American government’s affiliation with the woman, who said her name was Azra Turk, is one previously unreported detail” LOVE how the use of a spy in an opposition campaign is just an “underreported detail.”
@NYT is literally an enemy of the United States, peddling overt lies
The spying “operation has become a political flash point in the face of accusations by President Trump & his allies (The 63 million Americans whose vote is being silenced) that American law enforcement & intelligence officials spied on his campaign to undermine his chances” @NYT
“Last year, @POTUS called it “Spygate.”The decision to use Ms. Turk in the operation aimed at a presidential campaign official shows the level of alarm inside the F.B.I. during a frantic period” They were calling in their #InsurancePolicy

2016: The CIA tried mind control to create the perfect assassin nypost.com/2016/07/23/the… - this article talks about brainwashing #MKUltra to create killers would be have no recollection - effectively "amnesia" - but that's also a #Symbolism code. What do I mean? #Logic #Qanon
Direct Answer: Brainwashing is employed through cultist families that sacrifice a child into the system. The family and nearby agents including children of other cultists are in on it to brainwash a child: family, psychiatrists, "friends", & enemies are all in on it. #MKUltra
Being betrayed by family and "friends" in the most traumatizing way that can be engineered - giving new friends that are also in on it to encourage a specific set of actions - giving them drugs to further encourage compliance = you can make anyone do anything. #Qanon #MKUltra

Ten #MMT tips to remember on #TaxDay:
1. Federal #taxes don't fund federal spending, so let's #decouple these two important tools.
2. Taxes offset #Government spending.
3. It's a matter of #logic: #dollars must be spent into existence (by the Gov) first, in order for us to use some of those $ to pay taxes
4. #Taxing for #revenue is for local states/municipalities, not the #sovereign issuer of the #currency.
5. Taxing excessive wealth protects #democracy from #Oligarchy and protects us from abusive market power
6. Taxing #pollution & #speculation to reduce such activities, not to "fund" #healthcare and #education.

🔴Thread: Why #Islam?

The power of #Islam stems from:

1️⃣ The absolute divine source, where neither the prophet (PBUH) nor his companions have the right to legislate, nor can they or any one else claim to be the author of the Qur'an.
2️⃣ #Islam has Neutrality and absolute rejection of racism of all kinds.

3️⃣ The Qur’an challenges all mankind with falsification tests like in scientific field so it goes with science. #Logic
4️⃣ #Islam through The Qur’an, covers all human life aspects. From fundamental doctrines to major legislation, politically, militarily, economically and socially, to small details such as how to eat, drink, dress, walk, sleep, wake up, ride and clean.

2️⃣ I have put this and other threads to explain basic concepts in order to improve communication between people. My goal is to express the abstract truth & improve the opportunities for communication & understanding for people who really yearn for understanding & peacemaking.
3️⃣ I have sufficient knowledge of the Scriptures of other religions, and I can easily attack them in a very ugly way. But this is only a hateful, emotional and repulsive way that does not suit my goal.

1️⃣ Let’s discuss the absolute necessity of the existence of The Creator.

2️⃣ Consider this thread as well as other threads of mine as practical exercise. Belief in Allah strengthens mental health capabilities. The kind of exercise we think through in these threads increases IQ.

3️⃣ I’ve mentioned before that intelligence and stupidity are not genetic. They are the result of the accumulation of logical or illogical ideas and decisions.
