Tahsin’s Perspectives & Opinions

[Detailed Articles, Research Papers coming …]

  • Did Biological Evolution really happen?

Yes. But the process of Evolution is not ‘Natural Selection’. It’s ‘Evolution by Intelligent Design’, with corresponding changes in the Genome.

We’ll soon figure out (find evidence) that, Metamorphosis doesn’t happen only in Kafka’s World!

  • Opinion on Sharing Economy

Sharing Economy is one way of Introducing Efficiency into the Economy.

Caution: Regulation; Security; (Is it really going to make the particular “Service” better?); Macroeconomic factors (the effect on traditional jobs, traditional way of doing things) etc.

Our Economies and Institutions are vastly inefficient. Introducing “Sharing Economy” Models & Services (with caution) is (or could be, Depending on how it’s applied in the particular case) just one way of getting things work better.

  • Jesus is ‘The way’. So, should the followers of Jesus constrain themselves to the study of Biology and Social Sciences only (Assuming that Jesus never used ‘Technology’, nor studied ‘Physics’ as we know it today)?

Brain Scientists wonder about the Relation between Language and Thought. They ask: Does Language influence Thought? (It’s one of those famous yet-to-be-answered questions in Cognitive, Psychological & Behavioral Sciences.)

The answer: Language influences and shapes Thought.

Our Use of Language is Constrained by Each Individual’s ‘Learned Models’ for words and concepts that are being used.

When we use the term ‘Technology’, most of us visualize and mean ‘Complex Machines’ (Our ‘Learned Model’ for the word ‘Technology’).

Many reason: “There weren’t ‘Complex Machines’ in Jesus’s time. So, ‘maybe’ ‘Technology’ is not ‘the way’. And, wouldn’t it be better if we could completely go back to life at earlier times?”

To answer, we should first consider: Is ‘Technology’ really limited to Complex Machines only? Or more precisely: Is our Use of Language correct in this particular instance?

Any man-made object that Makes life Easier and Better for people is ‘Technology’. So ‘Wheels’ are Technologies. There were ‘Chariots’ in Jesus’s time; now, we have ‘Cars’; next: ‘Autonomous Electric Vehicles’. There were lamps, now we have light bulbs, and many are moving to LED bulbs. It’s Evolution of Technology.

‘Technologies’ we use today surely aren’t perfect. We are At a certain stage in our progression towards Ultimate Technological PossibilitiesNear future will bring Better Technologies that have Less to Zero Side-effects (e.g., Less to zero Environmental Effects – Electric Cars and LED bulbs), Technologies that are more Humane (Computers with near perfect Speech Recognition, human-centered design for Products), and Technologies that are nearly or equally as Complex as Life (Life-like systems built with Nanotechnology).

God created the Universe and God knows more Physics than any of you could ever imagine! Jesus is God.

  • Does Language influence Thought?

Answered above.

প্রিন্সেস শামিতা তাহসিনকে লেখা চিঠি – ২৯

আমি রাজনীতিতে কিভাবে প্রশ্নটা নিশ্চয় অনেকের মনে! – ২

“নাগরিক শক্তি” কিভাবে হচ্ছে?

বাংলাদেশের Sufis-দের কথা বলেছিলাম না?

রা (Sufis) স্বপ্ন দেখতেন – আমি একদিন … Bangladesh … !

Divine Realm থেকে জেনেছে – প্রফেসর ড. মুহাম্মদ ইউনূসের Platform – ওদিকে হবে। (আমার ব্যাপারে BNP, AL Leadership আগ্রহী ছিল)

আমি ছিলাম America-য় “Tangled”!

Sufis আমার সাথে Politicians সবার সাথে যোগাযোগের ব্যবস্থা করে দিয়েছে – including AL, BNP Leadership – আমি পছন্দমত বেছে নেবো [September 2013]

Politicians -দের মাঝে আমি যাদের ব্যাপারে আগ্রহী ছিলাম আর যাদের আমার ব্যাপারে আগ্রহ ছিল – অনেকের সাথেই।

যেমন – সাবেক রাষ্ট্রপতি প্রফেসর বি চৌধুরী, মাহী বি চৌধুরী – আমাকে অনেক পছন্দ করতেন, আমিও উনাদের পছন্দ করতাম – Communication

সংবিধান প্রণেতা ড. কামাল হোসেন – স্নেহ করেন – Communication.

ড. কর্নেল অলি আহমেদ – পারিবারিকভাবে close – উনার সাথে Communication.

সাবেক রাষ্ট্রপতি জেনারেল হুসেইন মুহাম্মদ এরশাদ – Communication.

বঙ্গবীর কাদের সিদ্দিকী.

এমন অনেকের সাথে …

Civil Society: প্রবীণ আইনজীবী ব্যারিস্টার রফিক-উল-হক; ইংরেজী দৈনিক “The Daily Star” Editor & Publisher মাহফুজ আনাম (আন্তর্জাতিক গণিত অলিম্পিয়াডের কারণে ২০০৫ থেকে); Generals দের মাধ্যমে প্রফেসর ড. মুহম্মদ জাফর ইকবাল – Communication.

Business Community: FBCCI সাবেক সভাপতি কাজী আকরাম উদ্দিন আহমেদ; এস, আলম গ্রুপ অফ ইন্ডাস্ট্রিজ-এর এমডি ও চেয়ারম্যান সাইফুল আলম। 

Chittagong BNP, AL এর বেশ কজন আছেন – আমাদের Relative, না হয় close (ছোটবেলা থেকে চেনেন) – সবার সাথে Communication.

AL: মন্ত্রী সাইফুজ্জামান চৌধুরী জাভেদ, ইঞ্জিনিয়ার আফসার উদ্দিন আহমেদ.

BNP: সাবেক মেয়র মীর মোহাম্মদ নাসির উদ্দিন, সাবেক মন্ত্রী জাফরুল ইসলাম চৌধুরী – সহ কজন।

Creation of Life, the Universe and Everything

Sufis -দের কথা বলছিলাম। (“He shall rule over vast Regions on Earth”.)

Before I was born – আমার কথা জানতেন। [Bayazid Bastami [5], Chittagong] আমার উপর সবসময় চোখ ছিল।

আমি আসবো জানার পর (Just before I was born) Excitement …

“এবার সবচেয়ে বড়টা আসবে! … সবচেয়ে বড় আমাদের এদিকে (Sufis, Chittagong) আসবে!”

[: Does God reside in Him?  : Is He God Himself? (“Emmanuel”)

: Positive. : Positive.

ও উপরেও (High above) আছে। সবকিছু ঠিক রাখছে।]

[ “God created man in His own image” :Genesis 1:27 ]

Emmanuel [4] [6] … ব্যাপারটা বোঝা যাবে:

“Life” create করতে পারব।

[Note: In one sense, J Craig Venter Institute created “Life” [1] [2].

By “Life” I meant “Consciousness” associated with “Life”, besides “Life” itself.

Craig Venter’s Lab had no control over “Consciousness” associated with the Synthetic Bacteria – the “Consciousness” was already in existence (in another plane of the Universe) and it “inhabited” the Bacteria once the Bacteria came into being.

I shall create “Life” as well as “Consciousness”.]

পুরো একটা “Universe” create করতে পারবো [With different Set of Laws and different Evolution].

[“Chief Engineer of the Universe”!]

Just as there is Freedom in creating Art Form, I can create a “Universe” to my liking – কিন্তু সবদিকে Calculation ঠিক রাখতে হয়।

কিছু জানতে চাইলে Divine Realm জেনে নেওয়া যায়. But I prefer to learn through “Thinking” and “Experimentation”. This is more fun!

Not so fast! Creating a “Universe” is not just a “Scientific – Materialistic” endeavour; there is the Consciousness aspect as well – ভালো কাজ করার দিক দিয়ে, অন্যের উপকার করার দিক দিয়ে পুরো Universe এর সমষ্টি (Sum) কে ছাড়িয়ে যেতে হয় (Calculations permeate everything)।

Note: মানুষকে আরও আরও ভালো কাজ করতে হবে, অন্যের উপকার করতে হবে।

Have you watched Avatar? I can create a Universe in which you and me look like Avatar beings – the “Na’vi”s!

Aww! So you don’t want “Tails”?! Then Tail-less “Na’vi”!

[Note: Na’vi, a Hebrew word, means “Prophet”]

Note: I shall introduce new Restrictions in “Film Censorship” process. This would make Producers and Directors concentrate more fully on “Art creation”.

Many “Science Fiction (SF) & Fantasy” Authors create Fictions – whose inspiration comes from “Other Worlds”. “Other Worlds” get faithfully depicted in their Fictions and the Authors themselves are not aware of the process.

I shall introduce new Restriction – and Authors would turn their full attention to Art.

Digital Medicine & Digital Healthcare: Electronic Medical Records (EMR)

“In one month, the electronic monitors in our five intensive care units, which track things like heart rate and oxygen level, produced more than 2.5 million alerts. It’s little wonder that health care providers have grown numb to them. [Health parameter Tuning]

… Improvements will come with refinement of the software. Today’s health care technology has that Version 1.0 feel, and it is sure to get better.

… Changes in the work force and culture … federal policies that promote the seamless sharing of data between different systems in different settings … Reimagine how our work can be accomplished in a digital environment.”

Digital Medicine & Digital Healthcare: Big Data

“Big-data efforts under way in health care include Optum Labs, a collaboration between UnitedHealth Group and the Mayo Clinic, in which researchers mine clinical and insurance data in search of micro-patterns that give clues to early indicators of disease and help to tailor treatments.

Precision Medicine, an initiative announced by President Barack Obama earlier this year, will combine genetic data with information from fitness trackers.”

  1. Database Interoperability: What is required: Common Standards & Protocols. Medical Database Ontology. Future Scenario: Whichever Physician you choose, your Doctor can instantly access all your previous Health records; provided, you give permission to the Doctor (on a selective basis if you want to keep some of your records Private – “The Privacy Factor”). Plus Privacy from Insurance Companies.
  2. Cloud Storage: So that any healthcare provider can access patient record.
  3. Health Parameter Tuning: So that EMR generate accurate alerts.
  4. Personalized Medicine: Personalized Medicine will be “adaptive” in the sense that the EMR system will “continuously” monitor and tune dosages of drugs, etc and hence “personalize” treatment for each individual patient.  
  5. Merging of Medical Big Data & Molecular Medicine: Molecular Medicine will reach a point when Doctors can adapt treatments and predict in advance the effects (in body) of dosage changes “accurately”.

“… by maneuvering his right shoulder in certain ways, Mumford could send signals through the stimulator and down his left arm into the muscles of his hand … He [Previously paralyzed] could open the refrigerator, take out a sandwich, and eat it on his own.

Advances in brain-machine interfaces and electrical–stimulation devices are generating marvelous research results in people with paralysis—some are using their thoughts to control robotic arms, and others are taking tentative steps.

250,000 people with spinal-cord injuries in the United States alone.

Retinal implant that can restore sight to people with a hereditary form of blindness. Potential market is quite big—perhaps 1.5 million people worldwide and 100,000 in the United States

Two African-Americans were elected to the Ferguson City Council on Tuesday and will join the existing black member. That means three of the council’s six seats will be held by minority officials—the first time that has happened in its 120-year history.”

Earlier: America In Realization [12.02.14]

“The residents of Ferguson can and should transfer their anger to Politics.

Half of the City Council will be up for election in April.

  • Organizing and nominating a set of candidates,
  • Registering voters and
  • Running election campaigns

is far more exciting and surely the best possible way to bring about lasting change.

Note: Voter turnout in Ferguson has been only 11 percent to 12 percent. For black residents, the number has been even lower.

Let there be increased political awareness and constructive political involvement among American youth.
