1. The Original Days of Event:


We have explained in sections II.15-16 that there is a minimum 'Day' which is that indivisible duration of time called 'the Single Day' (al-yawm al-fard). And we showed that this Day when taken globally, or indeed universally (since it encompasses all of manifest creation) actually includes our normal day, though we encounter it in fact just as a moment. In each one of these moments or Days there is only one global cosmic 'event' happening in each part of the entire cosmos. These Single Days are the original cosmic Days which are called the divine 'Days of event' (ayyam-ul-sha n), as discussed in the preceding Chapter and Chapter II. For in each Day of event (or divine 'task') Allah creates a single event actually encompassing every entity and phenomenon of the whole manifest world. As He said in the Qur an: each Day He is upon a (single) task (55:29).

Ibn Arabi points out that 'in each day of our normal days, that is from sunset to sunset or from sunrise to sunrise, there is the end of three hundred and sixty days ' [Ayyam Al-Sha n: 6] (assuming the circle is 360 degrees).[65] That is because in every moment of the normal day that there is the end (or the beginning) of a day in one place, there is a corresponding beginning (or end) of another day in another place.

To explain this further, let us divide the circumference of the earth into 360 longitudinal lines and the day into 360 degrees of longitude. Therefore, any whole day that we encounter in any specific place is a combination or the sum of the ends (last degrees) of 360 days from other places on the earth; or in the same way, it is the sum of the first degrees of 360 days around the earth. For example let us suppose that we are on the first longitudinal line at the first degree of the day, then the second degree of this day on this first longitudinal line is the first degree of the day beginning on the second line, and so on. In another way we can also say that the 360 degrees of the 'day' on the first line are the collection of the last degrees of the lines 360, 359, 358 and so on up to line number 1. Therefore in every moment there is one full day around the earth: now, for example, it is morning somewhere, noon somewhere else and evening and midnight in other places; but all in total is a single full day (see also section II.15 above).

So the flow of these original Days marks the actual sequence of events that spans space and time. But because we live in and can only observe a tiny point of the whole space of the globe, we encounter linear time as our normal observed days of the week (i.e. the 'circulated days' described in the next section). Therefore, these original 'Days of event' are intertwined with our normal observed days.

Message from the Author:

I have no doubt that this is the most significant discovery in the history of mathematics, physics and philosophy, ever!

By revealing the mystery of the connection between discreteness and contintuity, this novel understanding of the complex (time-time) geometry, will cause a paradigm shift in our knowledge of the fundamental nature of the cosmos and its corporeal and incorporeal structures.

Enjoy reading...
