Abstract

One of the laws ruling the universe is the law of order and disorder. By designing a set of questions about order in the universe and studying their answers, we can understand one of the universe's laws and benefit from it in our lives. For this purpose, we have to answer questions such as: When look at the sky, do we see order or disorder? And are the stars arranged in order or disorder? When we look at the forest, do we see order or disorder? Is it true to say that the sky, forests, and other natural phenomena consist of both order and disorder? In order to answer these questions, it should be explained that any phenomenon in the material world is like a coin with two faces: one face "Reality of Existence" and the other face "Truth of Existence."

Introduction

One of the laws ruling the universe is the law of order and disorder. By designing a set of questions about order in the universe and studying their answers, we can understand one of the universe's laws and benefit from it in our lives. For this purpose, we have to answer questions such as:

When look at the sky, do we see order or disorder?

Are the stars arranged in order or disorder?

When we look at the forest, do we see order or disorder?

Is it true to say that the sky, forests, and other natural phenomena consist of both order and disorder?

In order to answer these questions, it should be explained that any phenomenon in the material world is like a coin with two faces: One face "Reality of Existence" and the other face "Truth of Existence."

Reality of Existence

Existential reality of every constituent of the universe indicates that it exists; it has taken place, happened or occurred whether or not we know the cause and howness [and quality] of its Existential reality of every constituent of the universe indicates that it exists; it has taken place, happened or occurred whether or not we know the cause and howness [and quality] of its occurrence. Reality of existence either is observable, recordable and measurable, or exerts an effect on the environment. It may also display a combination of these characteristics. For example, [the 'being' of] a piece of stone is real whether or not we know how it has been created, because it has evidently come to existence. Some phenomena have reality although we are not able to perceive (see or feel) them with our five senses. For instance, we cannot see or touch infrared light, nevertheless it has reality, and we can discover it with the aid of some equipment, measure and even use it [in practice].

Truth of Existence

The truth of existence is the quality, the reason, and the manner of existential reality and is achievable through discovering and examining such issues as follows.

The reason of existence and the manner of occurrence

For example, what is the 'cause' of a stone's creation? [Why has it been created?] Or how and through what factors has the universe come into existence?

The plan (purpose) of existence and the hidden aspects of existential reality

Any reality happens following a plan and design [plan of being). Thus, by verifying those hidden aspects of each reality, one can become aware of and examine the reality's plan and purpose of being. For example, we can realize for what purpose has the human being come into existence? Or what is the philosophy of the universe's creation? (The reason of its creation).

The quality of existence

The existential truth examines the howness and quality of existence of a reality in relation to a base point and analyzes it very closely. For example, having a base point, we can investigate whether a given reality truly exists [in the outside world] or it is an illusion. For instance, the reflection (image) of an object in the mirror has no existential truth because the image is virtual (illusory) in relation to the object. However, the image has existential reality [because it has come into existence through the mirror.

Therefore, it is possible for an entity in the universe to have an existential reality and at the same time not have an existential truth compared to its origin. And vice versa, an entity might not have a reality for us, but it can have existential truth (proving their reality), as does infrared light that is not considered real through naked eyes. However, because it can be detectable via special equipment it is no longer unreal In other words, based on the detection equipment that is our naked or non-naked eyes we can say whether something has existential truth or not.

Another example is the aura surrounding each human being. As it is not visible to the naked eyes, for many years it was considered not to be real and in fact a superstition. However today that the aura is finally visible through Kirlian photography, no one can say that it lacks [existential] truth. Consequently, existential truths help us explore the unknown, realize their reality, and not consider them unreal anymore.

Now, when we look at the sky, the reality is that the stars are randomly arranged without any order and it appears that there is no principle behind their arrangement or when looking at a natural forest we see absolute disorder; whereas, if we carefully look at an artificial and man-made forest we see that all the trees are arranged in order and placed at certain distances. Therefore, if man was to design the sky, mountains, forests and other constituents of nature, all of them would have an orderly layout. Conversely, principles such as symmetry or any other principle that reminds man of order are naturally not viewed in the layout of such constituents. In addition, when we seek the truth of above phenomena and study behind their scenes, we realize that behind their completely disordered appearance, there lies strict order and that they are directed by extremely precise and orderly principles. Therefore, we can say that the reality of the material world is based on disorder while its truth is based on order, or in other words:

“The universe is made of order and disorder”

Application of the Order and Disorder Law

Since the universe is based on both Order and Disorder, it is said that Order and Disorder is one of the laws governing the universe. By understanding this law one can correct his/her worldview on the establishment of order in life, and consequently prevent the damages that are easily eliminated this way. Take the case of a piece of string hanging from one's pocket, or a person's coat collar not neatly tucked, or a picture frame or a clock hung tilted on the wall of the waiting hall. How many people, being exposed to such cases, feel nervous and decide to undo this disorder or even get extremely nervous if correcting it is not possible? What is the actual link between an individual's psychical or nervous system function and a picture slanted on the wall? How is it that the defects in our surroundings cause us stress and illnesses in the end?

As previously discussed, the information related to events and external occurrences pass through a world-viewing filter, and it is due to this filter that everyone is not equally affected when encountered with the same situation. The impact rate of each encounter depends on the predefined framework of this filter. Therefore, due to the lack of knowledge, understanding, and perception of worldview principles, most of us often experience tensions that consequently poison the body and cause spasm or other side effects. For instance, many women are obsessed with their everyday chores and housework, and are poisoned by [untidiness and] disorderliness. Indeed, the main cause of a great number of our problems and diseases is not having studied the [symbolic] 'Book of Existence', and our unawareness of the Order and Disorder that forms the universe. Even though experiencing disorder is an inevitable part of life, and although complete and absolute order is not at all attainable, we never welcome disorder. Similarly, we are not inspired by nature's Order and Disorder although its never-ending and never-boring beauty is due to Order and Disorder. Indeed, the universe is made from Order and Disorder.

Our presupposed arrangements are a game of our mind. Our minds have become habituated to the frameworks invented by ourselves, and for this reason, if something is outside such framework it brings us discomfort and tension. Furthermore, the more we design our surrounding based on this mental pattern, the more intolerable it becomes to cope with the slightest disorder. Take the example of a luxurious house in which every piece of furniture is well-organized. In case of the slightest trace of untidiness we realize it without delay, and we experience spasm for a few minutes which threatens our peace. Conversely, in a cottage house that is not designed on order, disorderliness does not upset us or create any tension. So, despite its disorderliness, we can comfortably repose in it.

In a rural cottage there is no sign of orderliness, symmetry or systematic colors and the like. But, in an urban house everything is in a framework of orderliness, symmetry, concord of colors, and so on, and the slightest mess in the set immediately engages the mind and wastes its energy. For instance, if the walls, surfaces or doors are slightly malshaped, the mind focuses on it in torment. Whereas, in the case of a rural cottage which is designed based on [unsystematic] disorderliness, even the deformed walls, doors, stairs, and roofs are barely noticeable and they do not waste one's mental energy. That's why; only in a rustic ambiance can the individuals truly enjoy mental relaxation and set themselves free from the order-stricken tensions of machine life.

Likewise, in the city, our inner software hastily starts processing the individuals' clothes and clothing styles (making distinctions, comparison, evaluation, and the like). For instance, our software considers preset-color criteria as an indicator for the assessment of one's clothing colors and taste (i.e., cold color, warm color, color combination ratio along with their compatibility, etc.), and accordingly draws conclusions such as the individual's good- or bad-taste in choosing clothing colors.

In cases where clothing colors do not conform to the person's inner preprogrammed software, they unconsciously become irritated. A villager's worldview, as a result of his intimate contact and connection with nature, is not programmed based on such criteria; therefore, they are not disturbed when they see different [non-matching] colors used beside one another. They have learnt well from nature that any color can be used beside any other color, and that, nature's coloring is extremely beautiful although it lacks any specific criteria (pattern or combination). People living in the countryside are more adjusted with nature. The closer we become to nature, the more distant will our minds be from orderly arrangements, symmetries, color harmonies, and the like, and the more freely will it act. The fabrics of a rural lady's clothing widely differ from that of an urban lady. A great variety of colors are viewed in the rustic clothing and diverse [non-matching] colors are placed next to each other that are a unique beauty of the village life.

Likewise is a rural mind that functions freely, in accordance with nature and independent of urban orders and logical constraints. As a result, such disorderliness not only creates no tension or stress on the individual but they actually bring him pleasure. Conversely, in the city, due to our mental programs that are captive in the order framework, such color matching gives us an unpleasant feeling. In fact, city dwellers have lost their conformity with nature. Take the body colors of the fish, for example, that are composed of various weird and bizarre colors to which the human eye is often unaccustomed. If the human being was to design the fishes' bodies he would never apply such color combination; whereas, the person accustomed to nature is familiar with this color matching and their life is even inspired by it.

The more we study, the better we conclude that correcting one's worldview and accepting the coexistence of Order and Disorder is more natural and ensures better health. To complete this study an essential question needs to be answered:

Is order for life or life for order?

Does health serve orderliness or does order serve health?

How far can one go for maintaining order?

Obviously the immediate reply that springs to mind is that: order is to support living and it should serve human health. Yet, many housewives put their cardiac health at risk as they insist on creating an order that is beyond their capabilities. In other words, they simply sacrifice their well-being for keeping such [down to the last detail] order which is actually unreachable. Keeping order is appropriate to the extent that it does not damage the human health. This limit is the acceptable degree for maintaining orderliness.

It is worth mentioning that there are at least two types of order maintenance:

Implementation of civic and public order within a legal frame work and based on civic and social life requirements, such as traffic rules and the like.

Enforcing order within personal and family living environment.

Here we discuss the latter case and its relation to well-being. The individuals are to reach a status in which disorderliness cannot threaten their health or expose them to irretrievable losses. This does not imply that they must deliberately cause disorderliness or wish for it. On the contrary, it is to say that although individuals should establish order to the best of their ability, in case of deficiency, they should neither be obsessive about it nor become unhealthy. And it should have no negative effect whatsoever on them.

The permitted limit for keeping order is relative. For instance someone might be able to clean up his/her place twice or three times a day, while another person can do so only once a week or once a month. Which one is more appropriate? And, to what point should one maintain order? The reply is already mentioned: maintaining order is necessary to the extent that our strength allows and one should never waste their health on it.

The Relationship between Order and Disorder Law and Abnormal Behaviors

At times, we witness incidents in the society that justifying the motivations behind them seems difficult. Take for instance: damaging telephone boxes, bus seats, train windows, and the like. Evidence shows that those who carry out such actions take pleasure in doing so. They rarely seem to quit such behavior and might even keep this habit for a lifetime. Moreover, there are individuals from wealthy and respectable families who - without any financial needs - repeatedly commit theft. A handful of analyses exist regarding such abnormal behaviors. Psychologists, sociologists, and others each try to get to the root of the problem their own way.

A baby's world is in accordance with the universe's frameworks and is programmed based on the law of Order and Disorder. For example, a kid who deeply aspires to possess a toy and then finally gets hold of it through great persistence. He plays with it for a while and does not allow anyone else to even touch it. Nevertheless, after a while he starts to break it down into pieces on purpose. In fact, a baby's mentality is in concordance to [the principles of] 'Construction and Deconstruction’, and 'Order and Disorder’.

However, most parents, just for their own ease, desire their children to only utilize one single half of their existing software-based program and to merely apply 'order' in all aspects of their lives. The world-viewing software of both parents and teachers are set up based on order and logic; therefore, they insist that their kids act likewise and based on the same world-viewing system from infanthood. Consequently, they suggest ration, order and logic to their kids. Later on, they even boast about their very rational and neat children.

The core basis of all the efforts of parents and educational systems is to enforce more and more orderliness on kids, or as they put it, to educate kids with orderliness. But this way, one part of the child's existing software becomes futile. In fact, this [enforced] program contradicts the child's normal software and as soon as he is less controlled (usually during adolescence), this contradiction manifests itself. The conflicts between these two programs results in rebellion of the youth against logic and order (discipline). A rebellion which is subconscious and which automatically gives the individual pleasure whenever disrupting orderliness.

When such individuals see a clean and well-ordered telephone box, they unconsciously and inadvertently try to spoil its order by damaging it, and they enjoy doing so. Whatever symbolizes order [or pattern] unknowingly annoys them and forces them to act destructively. For instance, the moving of a train that is a symbol of orderliness disturbs them indirectly, and they would go into raptures if they could somehow break this order even by throwing a stone at the moving train. So, they do so, and it brings them absolute delight without knowing why. Generally, after imposing logic and order on children, an 'order-stricken' and 'logic-stricken' complication is shaped in their subconscious as a result of which they unknowingly challenge orderliness and whatever symbolizes it.

In more developed societies that enforce more discipline, we witness more serious incidents and disruptive behaviors when the order-stricken and logic-stricken phase exposes itself. For instance, in the West (with a more advanced technology and systematic order) every so often we hear the news of an armed teenager entering a school and opening fire on the school kids. In some people, the uprising against order is demonstrated through a reversed mechanism, i.e., they act opposite and contrary to what they are told. In very large families where individuals are engaged in a type of dictatorships, such rebellion is revealed in a different manner.

Another type of rebellion against order and logic is the sexual orientation response in which the person grimaces at reason, logic and order, and unconsciously reacts against normal sexual orientation. The human being's inner software is programmed based on attraction to the opposite sex (heterosexuality); however, as a result of this rebellion it is changed to attraction to the same sex (homosexuality). For the reason that this opposes part of the logic that governs human behavior, it unconsciously satisfies the individual and they will enjoy such tendency. The more man is forced into logic and order, the more will homosexual tendencies and the like increase. This is one of the current problems of the world, and the more human beings move towards machine life and absolute order and logic, the more will they face such issues.

Some homosexuals never ask themselves why they have such a tendency; while others who are aware of their issue, seek the underlying cause and its solution. If the condition is permanent and enduring, one of the below reasons plays a role in it:

Software-based factor;

Being programmed based on the law of Order and Disorder (an unconscious rebellion against discipline and logic);

The initial programming of the unconscious software in childhood;

Being contaminated with 'non-organic viruses' [1];

Others.

The software-based factor is defined as changes in the individual's normal software-based programs of the unconscious as a result of events, and their replacement with new programs which accordingly form such tendencies. For instance, when a young girl is repeatedly told that "she is so much like her father’’, in her subconscious software which is extremely programmable during infancy and childhood, it is written that she is like her farther. This is then put next to the other [pre-entered] information of [the unconscious] software telling her that her father is a man. After a while, these two statements are processed and combined in the individual's subconscious, and several years later and in adolescence, she considers herself a man from the inside and not a woman. She is therefore attracted to her same sex and not to the opposite one. At the same time, she is unaware how she got into such a situation and how this program was created. In other words, homosexuality, that is often considered to be a sexual perversion by the public, has happened unconsciously.

Similarly, some might dress up their young boy as a girl just for the fun of it, and put on make-up for him or ask him to act like girls or parents, who wished to have a daughter, might pick a girl's name for their son and treat him like a girl [these examples vary from culture to culture]. After a while the child's unconscious software is likely to be convinced that he is a girl. Thus, in adolescence, he might show attraction to his own sex, a tendency that others consider as a homosexual inclination, but he himself views as normal.

In both cases, the first factor that is the entrance of incorrect programs into the individual's unconscious software has caused such conditions. Thus, the person is a software-based victim. As discussed, the second factor (rebellion against Order and Disorder) is also a major cause of homosexuality in which the person is again considered a victim. With a closer look at the above explanation, it can be stated that so far the human beings' unawareness of the laws and principles of the universe has caused him more damage than imagined. For instance, the damages caused by neglecting the Order and Disorder law (that include various types of rebellion - a few of which were mentioned above -, and even sadism, masochism, and the like) expand day by day. On the contrary, recognizing the application of such laws and their true place will bring the human being a healthier life [2].

Incorrect Worldview and Mentosomatic Diseases

Worldview means the person’s general understanding of himself, the environment and all the events occurring around him. Everything that the human being comprehends from life experiences and events is passed through the worldviewing software framework called the World-viewing Filter which is the general result of mental and psychical [3] processing, and unconsciously defines his reactions to events. This framework is a filter and sub-schedule located at the semi-self-conscious level [2].

Microorganisms, contamination, old age, accidents, environmental pollution and poisons, malnutrition, absence of body movement, opposite and two-faced behaviours or psychosomatic diseases [3], congenital diseases and defects are not alone the causes of diseases. In addition, ‘incorrect worldview’ is one of the causes of human diseases called mentosomatic diseases [mental (mind) and soma (body)] or worldview-rooted diseases [2]. And can be extremely dangerous to human health and even lead to somatic illnesses. One of these incorrect worldviews is the lack of knowledge, understanding and perception of the law of Order and Disorder. In order to prevent such diseases we have to alter our worldviews by becoming equipped with correct ones.

Halqeh Mysticism (Erfan-E Halqeh) and Its Theoretical and Practical Aspects

More than three decades have passed since Mohammad Ali Taheri introduced the concept of Halqeh Mysticism (Erfane Halqeh) or Interuniversal Mysticism, including the two fields of complementary and alternative medicines of Faradarmani and Psymentology in Iran. This doctrine that is based on pure witness-like revelations, stemming from direct insight, aims to help man achieve Kamal (spiritual completeness; the collection of awareness that is transferable to the next life). Halqeh mysticism consists of two aspects: theoretical and practical [4]. The theoretical part necessitates discussion, study, descriptions, reasoning, and contemplation to clarify where it intends to take the human being. The practical aspect is made possible through establishing a form of link or connection (Ettesal) between human (as constituent-consciousness), and the Interuniversal Consciousness or Interuniversal Internet (as the whole consciousness) [5]. Establishing such connection can accomplish affairs and bring about results that man is not capable of attaining singlehandedly and through his own abilities. Correcting the individual’s world-viewing filter on the Order and Disorder law and treating its relevant mentosomatic illnesses are a few of such feats which are indeed the subject of Halqeh mysticism. Since Halqeh mysticism embraces all human beings, everybody regardless of their race, nationality, religion and personal beliefs can accept its theoretical part and experience and make use of the practical aspect.
