A new dark age of dogma as a reaction to the challenges of the new science (Article) - 8/11/2008 6:42:33 PM|
Incredibly poignant, Tarek, as always. So true that the 'new science' provides such an unprecedented era in mankind's history - to the point that it can be considered a collective epiphany - but also true that misuse of such an openly interpretive scientific revolution can be so easily perpetrated on the untrained, uneducated and unsuspecting 'sheep.' Well-wrought, dear friend. -- Jeff
On the betrayal of man as the greatest biological miracle (Article) - 7/12/2007 5:22:33 AM
Excellent article! I have been meaning to try to put this concept into words for a while, and you have done it very well. Thank you - Doug

Quite intensely profound ruminations. I have missed your depth and breadth of thought. -- Jeff
On the betrayal of man as the greatest biological miracle (Article) - 7/9/2007 7:52:58 PM
Very good article - well stated and argued. Godness is within us and is a function of the total universe - not a person in a specific place. It is time mankind outgrew its childish notions of deities. These outmoded ideas threaten civilization as we know it and secular humanists must begin to speak up for a secular, and humanistic view of the world.

An Historic ethical failure (Article) - 8/27/2006 12:31:19 AM
As usual you are quick with a preofound and perceptive review. I have reposted a corrected version as the first post had many typing errors.
I shall keep rminating your valuable comments. I also meant automated/computerised mass impersonal killing where you never see your adversaries. May there be more enlightened people like you.Thank you
An Historic ethical failure (Article) - 8/26/2006 8:20:43 PM
Tarek, how very timely and pertinent. It is so true that the "mechanized impersonal killing" gets past most moral and ethical boundaries. I think it was Anthony Quinn in either "Guns of Navarone" or "Force Ten from Navarone" who was the "knife killer," and he basically said words to the effect of: "Any man can kill with a gun; it's less personal; it's like the 'bullet' killed the person; I like killing with a knife, because it's much more personal." So... those words always rang true to me - and they still do, especially in light of more and more "impersonal mechanized killing."
If each and every arms bearer realizes that "when I pull the trigger, "[*I*] [[AM]] the gunpowder and the bullet that penetrates that human target at which I am aiming; "[*I*] [[AM]] the one who just took this person away from his wife and children - and "[*I*] [[AM]] the one who inexorably changed the course of the lives of an entire family...;" then, and only then, will conscience and morality begin to have the sobering effect that it should have. Another viewpoint is from a rather cheesy movie with some decent moral lessions: "With great power comes great responsibility." If we fail to take responsibility for our actions, we cease to retain the core of our humanity. -- Jeff
ruminations over the failures of peace (Article) - 8/2/2006 9:32:03 PM
Thank you for sharing your profound, informative, and insightful "ruminations" on the persistence of war in the worldwide human community. More than a few countries have taken wrong turns on the roads of history and mis-guided our global family until we ended up in this hell against which we are all now struggling. Every day, those of us who remain--as opposed to those whose lives are lost to the flames of ignorant violence--awake to choices and possibilities that do not have to include sanctioned murder. Options are yet a part of the world's reality. The challenge seems to be allowing ourselves to trust those other possibilities and dare to prepare as readily and eagerly for peace as we do for war.
ruminations over the failures of peace (Article) - 8/1/2006 11:12:42 AM
I am pleased to know that more concerned human beings are standing to reveal the reality of the criminal cartels – under the skirt of the United Nations Organization, which has proved to be an AMORAL GODMOTHER – of “Benighted Nations,” and concubine of THE FIVE MANUFACTURERS OF WAR TOOLS... Yes, they are the FIVE PERMANENT MEMBERS OF THE U.N. SECURITY COUNCIL. The Masters of the industrilized TERRORISM.
This article, "ruminations over the failures of peace" is a lighted torch to warn and alert on the wrongdoing of those STATE organized criminals. Ah! Almost forgot to mention NATO, where the servants of INDUSTRIAL WARRIORS, read the book of allied DEFENSE:
“There must be a mistake in the DEFENSE regulation.
It seems that its WORDING reads – WARFARE for World Welfare.
Germ's War, Carnage and STARVATION for Health and Peace,
And human HALLUCINATION – for reason and HUMANITY!”
From “WAKE UP CENTURY” strophe XCIV –
How about the INTERNATIONAL COURT ON CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY. That is another playball of the FIVE PERMANENT MEMBERS OF THE U.N. SECURITY COUNCIL, for only they can file suit against leaders of Nations that they call “Benighted”, when they say no to them.
”That was many scores of years ago, before Men were made Kings,
Before the creation of Peace Organizations, Human Rights,
Children rights, Freedom of Speech, animal rights and forums;
Forums of Nations, United for globalization of war;
Foster societies for degradation, slavery and starvation…
And the fierce Union of the Predatory Head of States,
Incorporated as the United Nations’ Security Council!”
FROM “THE KNIGHT-ERRANT OF BIG APPLE” – XIV
As long as those members of Nations known as “BENIGHTED” – any nation that is not one of the holders of the permanent seats of The United Nations Security Council – allow the FIVE LORDS MANUFACTURERS OF WEAPONS AND ENGINEERS OF INDUSTRILIZED WAR to play PING-PONG WAR-PEACE, there shall be no JUSTICE on Earth. IT IS UP TO THE PEOPLE TO DECIDE NOW, and stop allowing this AMORALITY, –SAYING “no” to ERIS, and “no” to ARES – before it is too late TO BUILD A SHIP TO RESCUE OUR CHILDREN FROM A DELUGE OF BLOOD.

ruminations over the failures of peace (Article) - 7/31/2006 8:30:15 PM
And we are so blind that we refuse to see that WE are the very power(s) who arm our very adversaries... or... do we do that intentionally? Tarek, you ALWAYS make insighful and thoughtful commentary, both poetically and politically. We may not agree on everything, but I believe that most of us agree that violence and hatred and bloodshed are traits of LOWER civilizations; and that to evolve to any TRUE higher state of being, we must become more like Jesus Christ and Mahatma Ghandi - that is to say that we should LOVE peace and we should BELIEVE IN peace. -- Jeff
ruminations over the failures of peace (Article) - 7/31/2006 10:57:07 AM
This is great food for thought. I might say that it will not be the Goddess Nemesis who prounces a curse upon us. We pronounce that upon ourself. I agree with you and I agree with Richard,"Until our leaders learn how to communicate with interactive dialogue, until they learn how to interface for the common good and not to appease their bloated egos and their bellies, there will never be peace." I go one step further. We cannot promote peace in the world as a selective situation or country. We would have other countries lay down their arms. Are we willing to do this? Bringing it home our constitution reads for the people, by the people of the people (I may not have that in the right order) These days it seems that is for the few by the few and of the few who have power. Someone once said democricy can only survive until somebody figures how to use it for his own selfish reasons. Are we headed for a horrible fate. The same fate that many other nations have gone? We need to take a closer look at our leaders but first we need to take a closer look at ourselves.
ruminations over the failures of peace (Article) - 7/31/2006 8:15:40 AM
People who see the world in black and white rarely seem to take in information that could undermine their positions. People routinely discount information that threatens their preexisting beliefs, even when you show them overwhelming evidence of hypocrisy and inconsistencies.
The illusion and delusion is the word and concept of PEACE. As long as man inhabits the planet, there will NEVER be peace.

You tell some of the most beautiful stories. I hope you are doing well my friend. I wish you were on-line and posting more often - you have so much to give to the world. I, personally, have been quite enriched by coming to know you - even at a distance. That speaks volumes of the impact of your words and your thougths.
Please keep enriching the world with your presence and your wisdom.
Osiris utters a warning to Imhotep in his dream (Article) - 3/1/2006 3:33:03 PM
The genetic experiments of times long before officially approved history have paved the way for the slow poisoning of matter and mind. Chemicals, circumstance and conditioning drive the slave race into each direction desired at each time planned before time. There is one little flaw in the design though, that allow the exact opposites to enter through the very same portals. It is the difference in achievement between realms of limit and paradox and those who know none of these.

Politically induced delusional systems (Article) - 4/25/2004 8:34:25 PM
Greetings in Peace,
As an AWAC veteran and former assistant squadron historian, I am familiar with the military terms "information warfare". IW is something our military and CIA do to us Americans 24/7. There are thousands of text books used in colleges and universities that are either CIA written or funded. How else can Amerika behave like Nazis whilst carrying out British Empire, and still believe they're free? Information warfare is a deliberate strategy employed by our government against its own citizens, as well as foreign enemies. As Patrick Henry was said - "War is the gambling table of governments, citizens the dupes of the game".
I suggest typing "information warfare" and "IW" into your search engine, especially google and metacrawler. Also visit www.VeteransForPeace.org and see what else us veterans can tell you about the rhetoric versus the reality.
Uncle Sam is providing the brawn to British Empire, installing dictators in third world countries and maintaining them.
Peace in our time,
Is the concept of cold war an expression of self-damaging Euro-American egocentrism? (Article) - 12/1/2003 11:28:04 PM
This article illuminates the pains, suffering, confusions, and questions of the victims of global state terrorism. Reading it has left me with a great sense of sadness. As an AWAC veteran, I've had Uncle Sam's number for over two decades and the tragedies he causes weigh heavily on my conscience.
When I review the written histories on the Soviet Union and its relationship to the rest of Europe prior to and after the Second World War, I do so with George Orwells' 1984 in mind in which the wars between states are manufactured to further control of individuals.
In this regard, some interesting things come to light. For example, Lenin was put into Russia by her European neighbors. And later Hitler produced posters illustrating his belief that Russia and America were in cooperation against Germany. Stalin killed millions and millions of his own people. After WWII, the Soviet Union was blown all out of proportion to its actual capabilities by American military and media in order to justify the expansion of government and corporate welfare.
Today, American corporations have partnered with Russia and even Communist China for slave labor and an eye on Russia's oil reserves. Commie slave labor produces the WalMart made-in-China goods that undersell everybody. That should be illegal. Corporations should not be allowed to partner with Commies, Kings, and other dictatorships to exploit workers. If people want to buy Chinese, then buy from Free China (Taiwan) where people can say to their boss "take this job and shove it" without being imprisoned or killed.
I look forward to the day when I don't have to read how my government is rampaging around the world in defense of Kings, Commie governments, and other dictators.

Such strength and depth in these lines, Tarek, and the use of 'forty' perfect in the context, an icon of time and passage.
This is fine work.

Oddities (Poetry) - 7/18/2008 9:38:56 PM
Tarek, it has been a long time since you have shared a poem here!
It's a pleasure to read you again, though this poem exposes the foolish nature of humanity that rejects wisdom. It is a fact that too many fear what they cannot understand,so they remain ignorant.
Keep writing,maybe some will learn;-)!....Eileen
Oddities (Poetry) - 7/18/2008 6:26:39 PM
Wise expressions in "Oddities" take one to identify what MARGINALIZED really means: WHENEVER ONE EXCEEDS THE AVERAGE BEST LEARNED MIND, THERE IS TIME TO MOVE TO ANOTHER ATMOSPHERE.
I have enjoyed the reading of "Oddities".
I salute You, Poet Son of Apollo, and brother of ASCLEPIUS.

ASYNCHRONICITY IN THE JOURNEY OF LIFE takes the reader inside that strange paradox of how we sometimes try so hard to connect with each other's humanity but at the same time manage to sabotage those same connections. Within this slender poem is enough wisdom to fill a library. Thank you for writing and sharing it.

A very powerful write my friend, for naked we came into this world and sin free by grace of our father, but it is the choices that one makes along this life that creates the monsters within, the opinionated and often sinful and cruel people that is the result. Your write is very thought provoking and allows almost forces the reader to take a long look at their own life as well as life around them to evaluate their level of human kindness and love for our fellowman. Great write my friend I enjoyed this much, so glad that I stopped by.

mirror mirror on the wall (Poetry) - 8/8/2006 10:21:00 PM
MIRROR MIRROR ON THE WALL aptly reflects how far humanity has wandered away from the initial divine purpose of human existence into the barbed maze of ignorance, fear, and violence. The light of who we truly are and what we truly should be to each other shines with loving brilliance through every line. Thank you for writing them.
mirror mirror on the wall (Poetry) - 8/8/2006 2:42:17 PM
I would imagine that one of the banes of a pluralistic melting pot like the United States, that attracts cultures from all over the planet, is that we are more a nation divided now than a nation united.
This is not because of multi-culturalism, or its colorful characters, it is because of greed and what the drug cartels are pumping into the veins of this great country!
Sadly most of society has accepted the mental programming from the political masks and we have lost our sense of unity as one Nation indivisible!
Instead of helping one another, we compete against one another in an effort to be better than one another and lord it over one another. We have embraced every evil bird in the universe in the pursuit of mammon and have done it gratuitously.
I am afraid that all of us have developed feet of clay!

Three cheers! Stirring words toward having us reach the truth: the 'self-realization' - the owning up to the numbness to which we succumb when we simply become mindless, soul-less, conscience-free drones who let the "powers-that-be" do our thinking for us. There is tolerance; there is acceptance; and... there is stupidity; they are NOT equal; and we should NOT fall into the trap of treating them as synonymous. We tolerate the government and the corporate elite; we accept the majority of their decisions; BUT, we should not do it blindly; without forethought; and without the right of dissent. It's time we ALL looked in the mirror - no, not Americans; but humanity as a whole. Truth-be-told, we are less than one-half a breath from obliteration. -- Jeff

crushing pyramids (Poetry) - 10/7/2005 7:48:49 PM
A telling and chilling parable of the too-often blind impulse to obey custom and ritual with too little consideration for the consequences. Your words speak to the core of fatal human failings while wisely indicating the possibility to avoid the same. CRUSHING PYRAMIDS is intensely brilliant and courageously profound.

Tarek, this impressive critique, which Andre Bendavi ben-YEHU shared with me, makes perfect sense to a god-thinker who's looked for the truth behind the 'apple's truth' her whole life. You've created, brilliantly and with a fundamental flare of mental light which ignites the solar plexus, a modern day cautionary tale of world-wide magnitude.
I was born in the form of an apple eater, but I eat no more 'apples of truth'. It's time to shake the 'tree' of its deadweight, journey into self to find the soul's core, and complete the mission of life.
I thank you, Tarek Ali Hassan, for the clarity and clarion call of your words in this numbing jungled orchard of perverted Eden.

And wouldn't Beckett love this tremendously:-) As would would Kafka, Camus, Sartre, and quite a few others with whom you apparently share a gift for illustrating the frustrating and too often dangerous absurdities of human endeavors.
and was born an eater of the forbidden fruit (Poetry) - 4/2/2005 8:25:22 AM
AND WAS BORN AN EATER OF THE FORBIBBEN FRUIT is that rarest dazzling literary fusion of poetry, philosophy, history, religion, and drama all rolled into a single superb aesthetic creation. These lines carry the reader into an intellectually and spiritually charged visualization of the history of humanity's ever expanding and contracting soul. In this, you have given us something more than glittering diamonds or tempting gold. You have given us a true glimpse into the living heart of what it means to be who and what we are. Thank You.
Argument with a tormenting other-self (Poetry) - 2/13/2005 10:33:16 PM
During Galileo's time, a spherical earth was a Muslim concept. Galileo's claim was blasphemous because it denied the Catholic concept of a flat earth and supported the Muslim concept of a round one. It was at Qurtabah (Cordoba) that Columbus learned that the earth was round and hatched his plans to sail west to reach India and steal their gold. The tragedy is that Galileo was just one of many people made to deny their minds to appease those yielding the power to initiate force. And though today people in most countries are not killed for their ideas, even Mr Lear who designed the Lear jet could not initially convince people of lesser intellect that his design would sell.

... And despite all warnings, I let myself be induced by the Reptile "and was born an eater of the forbidden fruit"... Could it identify the Sado- Masochist nature of my social body? (Mankind)
You, inspired One, You revealed the whereabouts of my generations, from the “Tale Of The Eden” to the birth of the press, and showed me all my foolishness and advancement up to the twenty-first century, but I am still a slave of the Reptile, "and was born an eater of the forbidden fruit" again through the psychobiology of my existence as mankind.
I can see traces indicating a referral that we could be the Fly-Commanders, Titans, later known as deities (Descendents of the Commanders, Titans.) that forgot how to get back to our base, and then, without direction, – or flying charter to return to the base, – we decided to create a home on Earth; and because we could not tell our subordinates what was going on, we started the colonization of this planet telling them lies? Instead of telling them that we were lost, we invented the Reptile and the Apple…? Could You be trying to tell me that “What starts with lies, in lies shall live”– like in the Murphy’s Law?
I should be talking on the poetical and dramatics of "and was born an eater of the forbidden fruit". This work has an excellent flowing. The form keeps its pace and the composition, as a whole is an outstanding one in Free Verse form. This style of Yours does keep one into the reading. I am very impressed with Your artistic capabilities, and can affirm to You that I will read anything written by Author Poet, Musician, Dramatist and Physician, Tarek Ali Hassan
It was a privilege to read Your "and was born an eater of the forbidden fruit".
I thank You.

Oh the words you make in silence, in the emptiness between few well chosen ones! So well put, how we can never be satisifed when we believe consumption is the key to happiness. Fools, all of us. Thanks for sharing, Tarek.
and then you knew too much! (Poetry) - 10/3/2004 4:10:04 AM
Does any one know what "your transfiguration at Colonas shall forever be the most sublime" means? Thanks.MJ

Tarek - I'm not sure why I did not get notified when you posted a poem. I am tracking you, so I don't know why that part of AD is apparently not always working. At any rate, there are few who I would call "great poets;" you, my friend, are a great poet! The yellow of the submarine symbolizes the cowardice that we portray, by failing to see that we can all live together in love and harmony, if only we bother to have the courage and the insight to come outside the submarine (think outside the box), and you also so eloquently allude to the fact that, although there is "water water everywhere, yet not a drop to drink" (i.e., "dying of thirst in the fountain") - here we are in this yellow submarine, pretentiously believing we are protecting liberty and hope, with solutions all around us, yet we continue to ignore amenable solutions, in the name of 'progress' and 'liberty' and 'democracy.' Incredibly well-done as always Tarek. Wonderful to see a post from you. I will send you an e-mail later. Be blessed, my friend. -- Jeff

I SEND GREETINGS TO ALL THAT THESE LETTERS MAY READ.
I hear the "secret lamentations of modern man", and I see the scornful smiles of the Indifferent Leaders of DISGRACE and
DEALERS OF DEATH.
Mammon entered in association with Ares. Their possessions spread, and "deeper, faster, higher" nine times said, (27=9) and nine times nine, (81=9) and nine are the Benighted Members that vote for them. If they refused to, the FIVE MAMMON/ARES Lords VETO!
The time is now, if the people want to follow the natural course of Justice, and instead of cry "secret lamentations of modern man", stand up, and say "No" to "MAMMON/ARES ASSOCIATED" also known as United Nations Security Council, NATO, VATICAN, and all their affiliated Shepherds and Soldiers of Shame.
This deliverance/presentation of "secret lamentations of modern man"
came on the right time.
I must congratulate the Author of this magnificent poetic-dramatic grandiose.
Healthy be the eyes of those that can read the "secret lamentations of modern man".
Justice and Courage.

Thought provoking! The dajjal came to mind, then I began to think of Bush, Sharon, Rumsfeld, and the powers that be, and how they turned our world upside down, and are still acting innocent with their so called "war on terror" while they themselves are the fuel that keeps Terror well and alive. These are trying times, thank you so much for this great offering!

Tarek! Bravo! I'm printing this out as one of the best examples
of how humanity has let the"Manufacture of consent" you spoke
about bring us to the brink of disaster! I have been convinced
for sometime that the freedom of the press in America would
bring us down, and the world with us! Of course it has to do with
greed, not with news. It is the greed of corporations that own
networks that own the news sources that vie for ratings that keep
what has become the horrendous "need to know" lie, they perpetrate
on an unsuspecting public who are too ignorant and complacent to know
the truth!The truth being that the fourth estate power no longer reports the news, they make it! They manipulate it any way they want
in order to keep an audience, and in many cases to further their
own agenda and political views. I'm sorry for ranting, I couldn't help myself!;-) Your work is so fantastic Tarek, it evokes truth to speak out!

I have to agree with Ace below, that is one hell of a treatise into your subconcious mind, Tarek...all I can say is wow, and that I do agree with most of it, although I have to read it again and again to really absorb the full meaning...quite a great piece of work...Find Peace, Ed & rufuz

Very interesting format in which to frame this piercing lament, Tarek. Our collective human condition does indeed slowly die from a great thirst rooted in our alienation of self, neighbor and planet. A powerfully engaging metaphysical offering; Bravo!

It is always a learning blissful moment to visit Your Den,
On this century of Poetic Revelation, when all past will mingle with now to be poemized in one single Voice of the VERB, it is glorious to know that the earthily son of Apollo, using the tools and technique of Asclepius, dedicated pupil of Hippocrates and Mozart, Tarek Ali Hassan, is another pen to write on the scrolls of life the emotions of eternity to comply with the poetic mission.
“To Cecilia” is an enjoyable romance grand.
May You enjoy a long healthy life.

profound ponderings, to be sure. you hit us in the gut and keep us awake; eyes open; so that we shan't sleep through the "why's". the "who's" are not as important as the "why's"; for the "why's" shall disclose the "who's." -- Jeff
A mass for our times (Poetry) - 1/3/2004 9:18:44 PM
Incredibly and indescribably beautiful and moving! Poetry itself longs to BE what you have written. For it is written, "The breath of God shall fall upon a poet; and that poet's words shall shake the very foundations of the Earth." That poet is named Tarek Ali Hassan.

This strikes me as otherwordly and mildly sarcastic. Of course most of the world population lives in abject poverty, and many of them die every day. The problem is that we can only do so much to alleviate those things. I write about them all the time, but few read my writing (go look at my poem, The Inexorability of Malthusian Geometry and you'll see that very few bothered to read it.)
Death of spontaneity (Poetry) - 12/26/2003 1:51:54 AM
excellant write Tarek.This screams " prove it"..the only proof I need is how I feel,too much emphasis on logic reason in this world..prehaps that is why we have lost so much..if we can 'prove 'somethng then we feel in control,of higher value..but if it's just a feeling,we discount it as worthless!Well not for me reason and logic,the greatest thing on earth is love and how does one prove that..feeling.Long LIve Spontaneity!Long Live Faith,Long live Feeling.Prehaps the next 'age' will be of the soul,of the unproven,unlogical.
You are indeed a great writer,making the reader think,ponder,feel..thankyou

A mass for our times (Poetry) - 12/19/2003 8:24:03 AM
"A mass for our times", - a dramatic poem written in a form from fifty-five centuries before Gaius Julius Caesar, analyzing the anxiety of today’s society of slavery and mercenary warriors.
This work reflects most of today's claims for peace and salvation, which can’t be accomplished because of the theocratic states under the pay-off of the engineers of slavery and war that dominate sixty-five percent of the world population directly, and the remaining thirty-five percent is controlled by them through their associates, named as “benighted nations” by the Five Lords Manufacturers of Weapons of mass destruction.
“A mass for our times” brings nourishment for the inner soul and feeds the mind of those seeking Justice, for it arrows the way to the gates of reality.
Although this ancient-modern style has a soft voice that penetrates the senses like the scent of sandalwood, one will require at least two readings of it in order to enable the conscious mind to conclude or develop thoughts on the subjects dealt throughout the entire lines of this masterpiece.
I have enjoyed this reading of “A mass for our times”, and thank You for sharing this magnificent piece of poetical work.
Please, allow me to explain that my referring to “A mass for our times” as “ANCIENT-MODERN” meant to say that we call this modern poetry, but it
has been this way for over seventy-eight centuries.
Thank You, honorable Poet, Musician and Physician Tarek Ali Hassan.
Healthy Creative and Productive Life.
May You enjoy a Memorable Season.

How interesting and well composed are your questions ... to which no one knows the answers. Investigations seem a waste of talent, time and money as they 'unmask' nothing new.
Thoughtful probe :)!
In Jeff's poem, no mirror, you wandered what bothered me--my beloved and closest sibling, my sister, Helen, passed away Oct. 1st. Though I was supposed to be executor of her estate (she didn't give me a notorized document--just her word), my four other (all younger) siblings claimed it and divided everything she had between themselves.
Then my daughter lost another baby (her 9th pregnancy) via miscarriage in mid-October, followed by the passing of another uncle Nov. 3rd (we lost one in May too).
Doogie, 9, who was born with cerebral palsy, had a second retina detachment (right eye this time in March) and, despite all our efforts, multiple surgeries, was pronounced totally blind on August 27th--he can only see light if it's shone directly into his right eye; the left doesn't even see light.
It's been a rough year!

Greetings in Peace,
I read your poem after having read your article elsewhere on Eurocentrism, which already had left me with a lump in my throat. So I was predisposed to feeling the pain in your writing. So much pain, so much tragedy, so much sadness.
The irony is that our own Amish and Old Order Mennonites here in the States share many practices with third world populations for which they're well respected rather than disdained. And on top of that, they smile all the way to the bank because they profit around $130 from an acre of land by their traditional farming methods, whereas the corporate farms are lucky to make $10 an acre. I guess what I'm trying to say is hold your head high the same as Amish and Mennonite and don't succumb to cultural programming, which is financed in Egypt by the United States. Besides Israel, Egypt recieves the most foreign aid from the U.S., which pays for loading your MATRIX. But as the Amish and Mennonite have demonstrated, one can still find freedom in an unfree world without having to do like Absaal and Hayy Ibn Yaqzaan and hideout on an uninhabited Indian island.
Peace in our time.
A wound that refuses to heal (Poetry) - 11/28/2003 9:42:28 AM
Tarek, I cry silent tears for many years over our countries inability to unmask the truth of these assassinations. Many have their theories, the fact remains most of us do not know what the truth is. "There is something terribly wrong with the state
of Denmark? or perhaps with us?" The correct answer to this question, I believe is,there may be something rotten in Denmark, but it is something rotten in the whole world. Humanity suffers from a very evil illness, called complacency.The poor are too week to fight it, the middle class have just enough not to want to be bothered and the rich have enough money to provide pleasures that sate any appetite...When something is wrong in society, the masses wait for their leaders to solve it,if the leaders don't do so,the people fall back on their comfort zones and opt out of the situation.I fear the days of revolt for societal change are over, because of the complacency level, not many people are hungry enough to go after change.Thank you for your excellent thought provoking write Tarek!Also, for your wonderful support of my work!;-)

Powerful write, Tarek; and I shall never forget Kennedy's assination either. I was but just a little girl of four years old, and I still can remember mommy, daddy, and grandma crying as they were watching the news, and I was asking: "Why?" I will never forget that as long as I live! (God, can it be true; where did those 40 years go by so fast??) And, of course, I will never forget September 11, 200l: it still makes me cry whenever I think of the hatred that was behind the attacks and still wonder why so many people hate us. What did we do to them; why do they hate America or Americans so much?? I guess it's a question (or questions) that only God knows the answer to. Thanks for sharing this harrowing write; God bless you, my friend! (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in America, Karen Lynn in Texas. :( >tears, tears, tears <

My comprehension is too low for this one. I keep raading it, but the anchor is cast to deep for me to fathom.

Truth (Poetry) - 9/17/2003 12:03:42 PM
September 17, 2003. 15:02. EST
“TRUTH” questions, the victims’ number increases; money dictates the rules and buys prominent minds to serve the interests of the PLUTOCRATS that enjoy privileged information, and the Press will write history to fit the notebook of the FIVE MAIN TERRORISTS of the Planet Earth, – the Manufactures of Weapons – that control the FIVE PERMANENT SEATS OF THE UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL, while the real facts of Reality are considered circumstantial, and The United Nations Organization became a cartel to control the “Benighted Nations”, as the “Five Bosses” of U.N., scornfully call all other members that “Nay” for their criminal organization.
The truth is:
“That man has invented saints in his name
Was proved in many ways, and he proceeds,
But won’t stand for truth, never stops his game,
For his game doesn’t fit, but war and greed!”
4th Stanza of “The Divinity Of Man” – By Bendavi ben-YEHU

Tiresias the blind seer (Poetry) - 8/31/2003 4:05:39 AM
This is bold! Are you saying that knowledge is the source of blindness - ignorance? In Greek mythology, Tiresias is a blind prophet. His myth as follows:
The most famous account of the origin of his blindness and his prophetic talent is as follows. When Tiresias was walking in the woods one day, he came upon two great serpents copulating; he struck them with his staff, and was thereupon transformed into a woman. Seven years later, she/he passed by the same place and came upon the same two serpents copulating; she/he struck them again with the staff and was turned back into a man. Some time later, Zeus and Hera were arguing over who had more pleasure in sex, the man or the woman: Zeus said it was the woman, while Hera claimed men got more pleasure from the act. To settle the argument, they consulted Tiresias, since he had experienced life as both sexes, and Tiresias sided with Zeus. In her anger, Hera struck Tiresias blind. Since Zeus could not undo the act of another deity, he gave Tiresias the gift of prophecy in compensation.
"what is vision's weight
what awful price?"
"Vision" in the first line is a pun; it is 'sight' as well as 'prophecy'. One of the examples where two lines make a great poem; study them carefully!
A terrifying and trying piece for me!

Prayer and reality sandwich (Poetry) - 8/31/2003 3:29:56 AM
The composition of the poem and the 'tit-for-tat' poetic justice are very straight forward. The title of the poem reflects the poet's disappointment; yet, the resolution of the poem, as evident in the last two lines, is indicative of human revenge. The voice in the poem is one oscillating between hope and resentment. The confusion is typically human ; and the tone is gentle like the tone in all Dr. Tarek Ali Hassan's works.
The theatricality of the closed door, along with the sign: "CLOSED" ushers to the drama and the suffering left out of the verse yet hinted at in the repetition of "gentle" against "hardened", "hurt", "treachery","betrayal", "fear",and "violence". Studying the diction, we see four "gentle", against seven indications and explanations of the closed door. The conclusion, then, must be that the poet is too 'weak' to really try and open the door, and finds it easier, to slam his eternally. Unaware, the poet pays the price of his own 'vulnerability'by giving up on his 'gentleness'.
The poem, short as it is, abounds with the dilema of love and deprivation,and hope and despair. The 'simple' door in the poem unearthes the complex feelings of loneliness and need of man trying to make sense of life through connecting with another soul, that presumably has the same 'simple' need.
The music is ultra soft; and the crescendo of the resolution against the dimenuendo of the opening lines ends the poem on a tragic note.The pathos in the poem is given dignity
by employing this 'gentle' music, though the ubruptness of the finale reflects an anger that was kept subdued.
Enjoyable in a VERY painful way.
Show me that door, and I wisll smash it into pieces for you, Doctor!

and was born an eater of the forbidden fruit (Poetry) - 8/23/2003 3:43:49 PM
Again? Forever an apple-eater? It is very scary!A very broad subject and a very valid argument.. Your 'head' is my muse, Doctor Tarek. I hope I have enough energy to learn it all from you. This poem is too rich for me to comment on in a few lines. I think I should answer your tacit question ( How to become a no-apple-eater when I was born and re-born an apple-eater?)in a poem.. You write:
"I am guiltless, you are all guiltless absolved!
Find the miraculous center, the resolution of all contradictions
the balance point to harmonious justice
this is the real struggle demanding heroes great "
How I aspire to do that!
But who invented the myth of "The Apple" in the first place? The myth of the "devil" and the "Serpent"? Was it not man? Just to absolve himself of greed and justify his decadence. If there were ever an apple that was on a forbidden tree, Adam had enough apples on all allowed trees to savour. It was his avarice that got him curious about 'delving into the forbidden'.
As Salman Rushdie says: "there is a limit to everything we know, except the perversion of man".
This dramatic poem discusses the classic theme of the fall of man, from a modern point of view, the view of the industrial man , the cyber man and the cloned one. Is there any hope that man can become a deity, a king of the universe? No,The poet affirms: "but was born again an apple-eater"; this was the resolution to the thematic question. In circles, the confused man's mind goes and never reaches but where he was born: the disgrace of the apple-eater.
The language of the poem simulates the workings of the mind of the apple-eater with the repurcussion of the title as refrain achieving perfection in composition.
Thank you for insiring the first generation of poets of the 21st century!

Tragic demise of the Matriarch (Poetry) - 8/1/2003 4:17:45 PM
Tarak, I have never read a more beautifully expressed allegorical poem! I must say I'm in awe of your talent, which is surely a gift.I'm honored that you would read my humble offerings!Thank You!
Tragic demise of the Matriarch (Poetry) - 7/24/2003 11:33:14 PM
Isis, in Egyptian mythology, is the Goddess of Life. Before creation, there was Nin, or the primordial ocean of chaos. Then, came a fire in heaven, known as Ra. This incident gave birth to Shu,or air and Tefnut, the moisture – together they created the earth, or Geb the God of earth and Nut, the Goddess of Sky. Geb and Nut shared a passion for each other that Ra , the cosmos, was jealous of their union and its potenial. Ra sent Shu to separate them, after them having a brief and passionate affair that gave birth to four children: Osiris and Seth ( males) and Isis and Nephthys (females).
Of the four children, Isis became the Goddess of life.Isis is the Mistress of the four elements: earth, water, wind and fire , the symbols to the powers of yin and yan as per Poet Tarek Hassan. Isis is referred to as the Mother Goddess whose blood nourishes the four corners of the world, hence: the Matriarch. From a union between Isis and Osiris, came Horus, The Living God and the Supreme God of the cosmos. “The Tragic Demise of the Matriarch” is a poem delivered on the tongue of Horus. Isis was skilled in the use of words that she could bring her dead husband Osiris back to life.Now, we can imagine how ‘tragic’ the demise of Isis is if she is the source of life itself and the source power that combats death!
Isis is also the Mistress of Magic and medicine. She is also the patron of women and children.In “The Tragic Demise of the Matriarch", Dr. Tarek Hassan sees the source of life, Isis, as dead and aloof, since she is not capable of living herself. Horus, the living God is actually living and more connected with life than his mother. The Goddess of Life is so divorced of living and her door is thus shut in the face of loving. In all her might and majesty, she is pictured as lying on a bed of worms and roses! The Poem is an allegory.
By humanizing Isis, Dr. Hassan succeeds in proving the loneliness of the Great. They, are so vulnerable when they are most powerful and there seems to be no way for us to connect with them, help them in their pain of loneliness because they will NOT be vulnerable. “the door” will remain shut in our faces when we try to reach out to love them. Furthermore, we are not allowed to love her, since we are not her equals. She must suffer the lack of love that dwindles her into her own death. She is in a weak position because she is rejecting the weakness of living things by standing above them as the Goddess! She, even in her hour of deepest need laid the trap consciously or unconsciously that shut her away from life and living, from loving and being loved. The poet even bewails:
"vulnerability is strength
vulnerability is the highest form of strength
vulnerability is the highest form of love."
But what Goddess can be vulnerable enough to empathize with this voice of Maat, the Goddess of Truth?
The greatness of this allegorical piece needs no further comment.
Thank you for sharing a masterpiece with us at the Den!

I enjoyed very much the vulnerability of the "Tragic Demise of the Matriarch". Just as you were writing About the 'Demise', I wrote: "At Yaru's Gate" - strange co-incidence, eh?
I will review your poem again; for now, let me dedicate At Yaru's Gate to you, on my demise!
They call me dead, though a gait I tread
Dozed and determined to Yaru’s gate
My heart is clear; what will I fear
Even if I came alone and late
I Did my share with the utmost care
My zeal never waned, my mind alert
Proudly I fought and justice sought
Now to the Hall of God, mitigate?
short time the Hall; shortly the Goal
Long time the earth, longer the wait
Now, I count fingers as soul lingers
About My own Rising Estate
Proud my sin, thus He would begin
To read my scroll of earthly fate
Oh, I loved too much and still as such
Indulged in disdain or hate
His eyes now fell on a word I tell
Light on my tongue and heavy the weight
Daily I said I was that God
I know and worship and dictate
I must confess I still know this
Is as true, as I would narrate.
And if there’s another Osiris
He must, then, be my godly state!
The Tragic Demise of the Matriarch tells me the physician has recovered ; this made my day!

Tragic demise of the Matriarch (Poetry) - 7/24/2003 3:13:21 PM
Asclepius could have healed Isis, and prevent her transfiguration…
– but then if he did, I wouldn't be privileged to read the
"Tragic demise of the Matriarch"; Erato wouldn’t be smiling as
Thalia tells her that Poet Tarek Ali Hassan keeps up with his creativity, and
Phoebus wouldn’t be so proud of his protégé, Physician and Poet.
It is a masterpiece; the "Tragic demise of the Matriarch" shall be on the pages
of the best of the twenty-first century’s Poetry.
Thank You for posting and sharing the "Tragic demise of the Matriarch".

The way between the end and the beginning is the same distance
between the edge of life and eternity.
“Dance Macabre!” is the movement within art and knowledge and the
expression of a mature soul in the Ball Dance of living while creating
to meet eternity now in the everlasting psychobiology of existing forming
and transcending form painting the mysteries while searching to unveil the
wonders of the fading light.
I learned, and I have enjoyed reading a masterpiece.
“Dance Macabre!” is jewel for the poetry collection of the twenty-first century.
Long Healthy Life may enjoy the inspired Author of “Dance Macabre!”.
