Oneness & Knowingness
“We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest.
It Is Kind of optical delusion of consciousness.” — Albert Einstein
“In our quest for happiness and the avoidance of suffering, we are all fundamentally the same,
and therefore equal. Despite the characteristics that differentiate us – race, language,
religion, gender, wealth and many others – we are all equal in terms of our basic humanity.” — Dalai Lama
The belief that everything in the universe is part of the same fundamental whole exists
throughout many cultures and philosophical, religious, spiritual, and scientific traditions,
as captured by the phrase ‘all that is.’
The Nobel winner Erwin Schrodinger once observed that quantum physics is compatible
with the notion that there is indeed a basic oneness of the universe. Therefore, despite
it seeming as though the world is full of many divisions, many people throughout the course
of human history and even today truly believe that individual things are part of some fundamental entity.
That’s why it make more sense to trust and believe in one God only, a God who has no son,
parents or any others beside him, and that all others are created by one God including all
the angels, holy spirit, messengers and prophets, plants and animal all came
from one creator, and it is mathematically proven.
Despite the prevalence of this belief, there has been a lack of a well validated measure
in psychology that captures this belief. While certain measures of spirituality do exist ,
the belief in oneness questions are typically combined with other questions that
assess other aspects of spirituality, such as meaning, purpose, sacredness,
or having a relationship with God. What happens when we secularize the belief in oneness?
The Jewish and Muslims the true descended of Abraham from Ishmael and Isaac
who was the first person to bring this Idea of one God for all, one creator and fight
hard for it against those who were worshiping many Gods, and made God having sons
and daughters, worshiping the stones and idols. King Nimrud put him in fire to kill
Abraham but he couldn’t, same with Pharos and Moses.
But in time other philosophers came and twisted the truth of the Bible and made
son to God! Abraham, Ishmael, Mohammed , Isaac and Jacob fight so hard to destroy
those idols in Baal, Habbal, and many other stones and Idols that was worshiped in
Palestine, Arabia , Babylonia, Persia and other place .
God sent those great prophets to destroy the Idols and lead the people away
from Idol worshiping to one God who is called ( ALLAH ). YAHOW, JAHOVA, HaShem,
Shedad , and have many adjective names 99 different names all are glorified
his wisdom, greatness, knowledge, strength, mercy, and Grace.
In a recent study, Kate Diebels and Mark Leary set out to find out. In their first study,
they found that only 20.3% of participants had thought about the oneness of all things
“often” or “many times”, while 25.9% of people “seldom” thought about the oneness
of all things, and 12.5% of people “never” had thought about it. While other studies
in the Muslims and Jewish world found that 99% of the Muslims
believe in one God and 80% of the Jewish do so.
I think that because everything is connected by a frequency vibration scale,
wavelength and specific energy that make us all are one. The end of the universe
will be a big large giant black hall that will feed on all others black halls that
feeding on other stars and planets. In the end we all are going to be inside a belly of this giant black hall.
And only God can destroy it and bring back all of us again.
In fact, a belief in oneness was more strongly related to feeling connected with
distant people and aspects of the natural world than with people with whom one is
close! Also, while a belief in oneness was related to actual experiences of oneness
(“mystical experiences”), there was no relationship between a belief in oneness
and feeling closer to God during a spiritual experience.
A belief in oneness was also associated with feeling connected to others through
a recognition of our common humanity, common problems, and common imperfections.
At the same time, there was no relationship between a belief in oneness and
the degree to which people endorsed self-focused values such as hedonism,
self-direction, security, or achievement.
This means that people can have a belief in oneness and still have a great deal of self-care,
healthy boundaries, and self-direction in life.
People who believe that everything is fundamentally one differ in crucial ways from those
who do not. In general, those who hold a belief in oneness have a more inclusive identity
that reflects their sense of connection with other people, nonhuman animals,
and aspects of nature that are all thought to be part of the same “one thing.”
This has some rather broad implications.
As God created every living thing from water, and from sand from
that mix of clay he created Human.
I do believe that this universe was indeed a giant void then mixed gas
and darkness once and that later on everything in this universe was water, a giant
universe of water no stars and no planets, just a huge water covered all the universe
under God throne and illuminated by his living light.
This water with all the mix gases, minerals, with varieties of cold and hot areas,
hot springs, and ocean that mixed between salt and sweet water .
God was preparing to create everything else from this water and this water
need it to explode and creates the known universe to us.
It might be beneficial for people all across the political spectrum to recognize
and hold in mind a belief in oneness even as they are asserting their values
and political beliefs. Only having “compassion” for those who are in your in-group,
and vilifying or even becoming violent toward those who you perceive as
the out-group, is not only antithetical to world peace more broadly,
but is also counter-productive to political progress that advances
the greater good of all humans on this planet.
I also think these findings have important implications for education. Even if some adults
may be hopeless when it comes to changing their beliefs, most children are not.
Other belief such as a belief that intelligence can learn and grow ( grow mind set)
are extraordinarily popular in education these days.
However, I wonder what the implications would be if all students were also
explicitly trained to believe that we are all part of the same fundamental humanity,
actively showing students through group discussions and activities how we
all have insecurities and imperfections, and how underneath the superficial
differences in opinions and political beliefs, we all have the same fundamental
needs for connection, purpose, and to matter in this vast universe.
The problem that some people have known the truth. The truth for many
corrupt people is not good they can’t make money from it, they cannot slave
people and use them like animal to work for the few, to steal their land and resources,
knowing the truth and fighting for the justice and truth is bad business for many
of those corrupted government s as it was in pharos time, nimrods time,
and Hitler who said lie and lie until they believe you.
The media and social net work All over the world the talked about fake news
for decades and misinformation, conspiracies, ideology, mistrust of experts,
epistemic bubbles and echo chambers These scourges make it much harder to solve
any problem of politics, climate, culture or public health, because they frustrate
the search for a widely recognized truth. We know there is something wrong with the way we know.
I think freedom of information and speech does not mean that you present your
topic without facts and that you should be accountable and can be sued .
Just like practicing law, medicine, or engineering without a registered and
recognized degree from qualified institution.
Same thing her if your present an lengthy Idea that you are not qualified to present
you should be liable for the false information and the damage you will do to society .
If you have an opinion and you mentioned that you are not sure of the
facts or that what you think, that’s different.
Does some doctors, lawyers and engineers lies , of course they do on TV with infomercial,
defending clients and criminals, or construct a building with low quality to gain money
and instead 100 years the building collapse in 10 years. It happens allot in Turkey,
India, Pakistan, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, and many other countries,
by the time the government find out, the criminals long gone out of the country.
Accounts of this crisis of knowledge, however, overlook how its differing
elements arise from a common source. Our problem concerns not just the way
we generate knowledge but our attitude toward knowledge, how we present
ourselves to each other as knowers. Beneath this crisis is a deeper
psychological one: the problem of knowingness.
Knowingness, as the philosopher and psychoanalyst Jonathan Lear defines
it in Open Minded (1998), is a posture of always ‘already knowing’,
of purporting to know the answers even before the question arises.
When new facts come to light, the knowing person is unperturbed.
You may be shocked, but they knew all along.
In 21st-century culture, knowingness is rampant. You see it in the conspiracy
theorist who dismisses contrary evidence as a ‘false flag’ and in the podcaster
for whom ‘late capitalism’ explains all social woes. It’s the ideologue
who knows the media has a liberal bias – or, alternatively, a corporate one.
It’s the above-it-all political centrist, confident that the truth is necessarily
found between the extremes of ‘both sides’. It’s the former US president Donald Trump,
who claimed, over and over, that ‘everybody knows’
things that were, in fact, unknown, unproven or untrue.
Knowingness is a particular danger for people whose job is to inform us.
For instance, there is the professor with the unassailable theory or the physician
who enters the examining room certain the patient’s problems result from
the condition the doctor happens to be an expert in. ‘Just as I thought,’ says
the too-knowing oncologist to the patient with ambiguous test results.
‘Fibro-sarcoma, it’s always fibrosarcoma.’
Knowingness can also take the form of ironic or cynical distance, of seeming to have
seen it all and gotten over it. It’s the posture of the cool culture maven who has already
heard every new band. It’s equally the stance of the speaker in the
biblical book of Ecclesiastes, for whom ‘there is nothing new under the sun.
In every case, as Lear puts it, ‘the stance of “already knowing” functions as a defense:
if you already know, you do not need to find out.’ Knowingness, then, is a false
claim to knowledge that makes it impossible to learn anything new. Knowingness
is why present-day culture wars are so boring.
No one is trying to find out anything. There is no common agreement about the facts,
and yet everyone acts as if all matters of fact are already settled.
But, in fact, the information age reveals how little we each already know.
Knowingness, then, might be a way to manage the flood of information.
There is so much we might know that we perhaps ought to know,
that it’s often easiest just to act as if we do. And if everyone else is acting,
too, then we’re never caught in our ignorance.
Of course, then, we’re stuck living with these falsehoods and their consequences
from plague to political upheaval, the very matter of tragedy.
Knowingness may be so tempting because it does serve a social function.
The classicist Simon Gold hill calls knowingness ‘the glue of social discourse’.
Think of our common words of sympathy: ‘I know, I know what you mean.’
Claiming to already know someone’s pain is an attempt to make them
feel more understood and, thus, less alone.
But social bonding is not the end-all of discourse. We complain to our doctors
and legislators not merely so they will sympathies with us, but in the hope that
they will solve our problems. In public life, the posture of already knowing
is useful if the goal is to build an audience, to promote group cohesion among
those who are ‘in the know’, who ‘get it’. But it poisons honest deliberation and the quest for truth.
To overcome knowingness, we need a humbler and more curious stance toward
knowledge. This does not mean we should pretend to ignorance. And we don’t
have to suspend all our knowledge when making a judgment about a new situation.
It isn’t knowingness when a physician tells a patient that, no; in fact,
herbal treatments will not cure their cancer.
To combat knowingness, then, we should not discard either our well-
established empirical knowledge or the theoretical orientations that help
us make sense of new information. We should rather recognize the limits
of what we know and be curious about what we don’t.
