The aim of this text is to realize a historic perspective into how sure classes of plasma life varieties had been considered by Muslims by means of their sacred literature.
Genie is an English translation of the Arabic time period “jinn”. The English phrase comes from the French “génie”, which meant a spirit of any sort, which in flip got here from the Latin “genius”, which meant a kind of private guardian spirit assigned to every particular person at beginning. The phrase “jinxed” could very effectively be associated to “jinn”.
Islam teaches that there are three major clever life varieties: angels, jinns and people. Angels are made of sunshine. The fifty-fifth chapter “Ar-Rahman” of the Qur’an states that jinns are product of “smokeless hearth” and people are product of clay (like that utilized in pottery). In trendy phrases, we could say that people are carbon-based or water-based, jinns plasma-based (this can change into obvious after studying the textual content beneath) and angels are photonic life varieties. Jinns are believed to have been created earlier than people and seem to have undergone some type of evolution. In Islam the existence of jinns is taken very critically and is totally accepted, even legally and even to this present day, in Islamic jurisprudence.
UFOs and Aerial Jinns
The well-known Islamic cosmographer and Persian doctor who lived within the thirteenth century, Zakariya ibn Muhammad ibn Mahmud Abu Yahya al-Qazwini, states that jinns “are aerial animals, with clear our bodies which might assume numerous varieties.” That is acknowledged as one class of jinns which permeate the environment and is harking back to Trevor Constable’s plasma-based “sky creatures”.
Gordon Creighton and Chris Line, way back to 1989, have argued that UFOs are in actuality jinns in several problems with the “Flying Saucer Evaluate”. The concept that Earth’s environment may very well be the habitat of residing aerial creatures which manifested as UFOs is just not a brand new one. Charles Fort appeared to consider that too and Kenneth Arnold, who kick-started trendy Ufology in 1947, additionally believed UFOs had been residing creatures. His perception that UFOs had been house animals with the power to vary their density has bothered different Ufologists. However, aerial jinns comprise just one class. Jinns are additionally believed to pervade the stable physique of the Earth and its floor.
Muslims consider that jinns have the facility to fly and size-shift by becoming into any house. It’s fascinating to notice that the favored depictions of a “genie” usually present a big large whose physique tapers right into a vortex and who, regardless of his measurement, is ready to squeeze into Aladdin’s lamp or a small bottle. This piece of fiction really illustrates fairly properly the power of jinns to size-shift. The depiction of a flame in a lamp can be harking back to plasma. Neon indicators and fluorescent lamps have plasmas in them. Any sort of fireside with a really excessive temperature can generate a plasma.
Jinns are additionally believed to have the ability to shape-shift and due to this fact can seem to people as snakes, scorpions, cattle, donkeys, birds, and different animals. They exist at a special “vibratory charge” or “vitality stage” and due to this fact will not be usually seen or detectable by us. In different phrases, they are often mentioned to be residing in a parallel world which interpenetrates our personal.
The Dictionary of Islam by Thomas Patrick Hughes states: “They change into invisible at please (by a fast extension or rarefaction of the particles which compose them), or immediately disappear within the earth or air, or by means of a stable wall.” Particles in plasma, by means of magnetic and electrical forces, can improve their inter-particle distance to lower the density of the plasma. The inter-particle distance in collisionless plasma is so massive that objects of collisionless plasma can simply move by means of one another.
All of those traits are in line with plasma life varieties as described by this writer. Some writers have already argued that jinns are actually plasma life varieties, for instance, Dr Ibrahim B Syed, a Scientific Professor of Drugs on the College of Louisville, College of Drugs.
We must always notice that the idea of plasma is a comparatively trendy one. The time period “plasma” was coined by Irving Langmuir round 1929 and trendy plasma physics solely started within the twentieth century. A thousand years in the past the idea of plasma didn’t exist. However the time period “smokeless hearth” captures slightly properly the picture of a plasma. If we had fluorescent lamps and neon indicators (that are composed of plasma) a thousand years in the past, they might in all probability be described as “smokeless hearth” or “hearth with out smoke”.
Jinns can’t see human beings clearly however solely as blurred photos. Nonetheless, similar to people, the perceptual ranges of some jinns could also be wider giving them intermittent entry to the human world (simply as some people have intermittent entry to the jinn world). It won’t be stunning if these jinns are thought-about “psychic” in their very own world – being the few who’re capable of talk with a wierd species known as “people”. The vast majority of jinns would in all probability contemplate people as ghosts residing in a parallel Earth.
Jinns in Societies
Like human beings, jinns are entrusted with tasks (careers, family life, and so forth.). We’re advised that many jinns accepted the mission and message of the Holy Prophet once they heard the Holy Qur’an learn by the Prophet whereas performing “Fajr salaah” in Ukaz. It’s due to this fact believed that jinns, similar to people, congregate into completely different religions and are available collectively in several teams, sects and cults resembling Muslims, Christians, Jews and even presumably atheists. They might have their very own mosques, church buildings and temples – as reported by some individuals who’ve had near-death experiences. In different phrases, jinns function in societies, communities and inside political techniques and are startlingly just like people. Their plasma-based civilization has in all probability an extended historical past than ours.
“Good” and “Evil” Jinns
It’s believed that each particular person is assigned a private jinn known as a “qareen”. We’re advised that the Prophet Muhammad’s qareen transformed right into a “good” Muslim jinn on listening to a recitation of the Qur’an as a result of, amongst different issues, it was “stunning”. This exhibits that jinns might be persuaded by arguments to vary their habits and that they’re clever life varieties with a way of morality and even aesthetics.
Muslims consider that jinns shall be rewarded for his or her righteousness and be punished for his or her wickedness similar to people. Jinns, like people, shall be judged on judgment day and be despatched to heaven or hell in line with the ethical high quality of the life they accomplished. They’re due to this fact clearly pondering beings with free alternative. Therefore, they might even have a conscience.
In sure texts, jinns have been portrayed as “demons” or “evil” in distinction with people. As defined in plasma metaphysics, the density of the bioplasma physique is correlated to the power of the being’s self-concept – the denser the bioplasma physique the extra “egoistical” the being. When density will increase the frequency decreases. We dwell in a decrease vitality universe than the jinns. Egoistical and malevolent jinns, with denser decrease frequency bioplasma our bodies, are due to this fact extra prone to fall into and infiltrate our house extra usually. This pattern of jinns that people would most frequently encounter is each biased and tiny in comparison with the overall inhabitants of jinns. We must always due to this fact not decide all jinns by the few that we most frequently meet.
Moreover, with all of the wars, genocides, atrocities, murders, tortures, pressured extinctions of different life-forms, irreparable harm to Earth’s setting and easily despicable habits of people in recorded historical past it’s fairly troublesome to defend a thesis which argues that people are indirectly extra virtuous than jinns.
Some could argue that jinns influenced people to do evil. However don’t people have free alternative? The accountability for evil acts should due to this fact lie squarely on the shoulders of people that commit these acts. Jinns could have due to this fact change into handy scapegoats for people. The logical conclusion primarily based on all probably the most dependable info is that simply as there are good and evil people there are good and evil jinns. That is actually the final perception of Islam. (Right here “good” and “evil” are used as subjective phrases relative to some identifiable ethical body of reference.)
Can there be Plasma Life?
One critic is of the view that jinns, that are composed of “smokeless hearth” can’t be life varieties because the twenty-first chapter of the Qur’an says “We constituted of water each residing factor.” The argument is that since jinns will not be composed of water they can’t be residing issues.
Logically earlier than anybody can come to this conclusion he or she should outline what life is. They haven’t executed so. Maybe they already know that there’s nonetheless no consensus on the definition of life within the scientific group, although many main scientists have tried to take action and have failed in a single facet or one other. The definition of what life is, clearly, is much from settled. Simply ask any biologist!
Secondly, when it comes to sentence logic, it may be argued that “we constituted of water each residing factor” doesn’t go so far as “we made each residing factor from water”. The latter means the set of all residing issues is a subset of issues constituted of water. The previous merely implies that every part that was constituted of water, inside the context of the twenty-first chapter, was residing. In different phrases, it implies that the set of residing issues (not all) is a subset of issues product of water. This extra restricted interpretation is clearly extra in line with the remainder of the Qur’an.
Anybody who states that jinns will not be life varieties should additionally clarify how entities which dwell in societies, have free alternative, are persuaded by verses from the Qur’an to…change their habits, have a way of morality and an appreciation for aesthetics, transfer and talk and in the end to be subjected to judgement primarily based on their actions and ideas will not be life varieties or residing issues. Will it make sense to say that God will “decide” a non-life type on whether or not it had acted morally or not? How can a non-life type have free alternative? How can a non-life type have a way of morality?
Scientists are presently critically contemplating different types of life together with silicon and gaseous life varieties; and different substrates in addition to water, for instance, liquid methane and ammonia. “Whether or not water is important for all times is, I believe, very doubtful,” says Christopher McKay, a planetary scientist at NASA Ames Analysis Heart in Moffett Discipline, California. Astrobiologist Dirk Schulze-Makuch at Washington State College in Pullman believes that the reliance on water by life varieties on Earth is only coincidental. “Life on Earth realized to work with water as a result of it is the one liquid that’s actually plentiful. I do not assume there’s something magic about it,” he says.
There are severe scientific causes which have been put ahead to argue that oceans of sulphuric acid may effectively do the job on a hotter planet; and oceans of methanol, ammonia, and even methane may suffice on a cooler planet. Some scientists have identified that not all of water’s properties are distinctive. Hydrogen fluoride, sulphuric acid, ammonia and hydrogen peroxide share water’s capability to hold round hydrogen ions which catalyse chemical reactions which can be essential for cells to digest vitamins – making life potential.
This writer has already argued within the article “Darkish Panspermia” (2008) that liquid water is important for biochemical life as an agent for transport and protein folding. Its excessive warmth capability, capability to stay a liquid over a large temperature vary and properties as a solvent ensures a secure and helpful substrate for biochemical actions. Nonetheless, its significance is relative to biochemical life – not electromagnetic plasma-based life.
Bioplasma life varieties are electromagnetic life varieties which use magnetic fields to type buildings and electrical fields as brokers of transport. Water is just not crucial. Complicated plasma (which is what bioplasma our bodies are composed of, in line with plasma metaphysics) can exist in a liquid-crystal state – just like organic cells within the human physique. Particles in a liquid-crystal part are free to maneuver about in a lot the identical approach as in a liquid, however as they achieve this they continue to be oriented in a sure route. This function could make it superior to water in its capability to help life in the next vitality location or universe.
Clay or Water?
Moreover, as quoted above, within the fifty-fifth chapter of the Qur’an, it’s said that people had been constituted of clay. I believe for those who went right into a restaurant and ordered a glass of water and you bought a glass of clay – it is possible for you to to inform the distinction. So are people constituted of water or clay? In keeping with one class of scientific theories that offers with the origin of life, fine-grained crystals of clay may need very effectively been the primary life varieties on Earth.
In keeping with these theories, self-replicating layered clay crystals developed the power to fabricate advanced biomolecules, resembling RNA, over hundreds of thousands of 12 months which finally grew to become the dominant type of life on the planet. This gave rise to all sorts of life varieties that we all know at this time (not solely human beings). A group on the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Massachusetts Basic Hospital in Boston have proven that supplies in clay had been key to a number of the preliminary processes in forming life. However Science additionally tells us that that the commonest molecule within the human physique is water. So is there a contradiction? The reply is “No” as a result of we’re describing the composition of life varieties at two completely different factors of time of their evolutionary historical past. The idea of evolution needs to be taken under consideration in learning not solely people but in addition the jinns.
The eleventh chapter of the Qur’an states, “I’ll fill Hell with jinns and males all collectively”. On this connection, there may be additionally one other criticism within the literature that if jinns had been constituted of hearth then they may not presumably undergo in hell hearth since they’re composed of the identical substance. However that this means a contradiction within the Qur’an, it’s as absurd as saying that people won’t really feel ache if pelted by clay pellets.
Once more the idea of evolution is relevant. Even when people developed from the distant previous from clay life, at this time we’re of various composition. Equally, jinns have additionally developed from the elementary substrate “smokeless hearth” to stylish plasma-based life varieties. This consists of (primarily based on the writer’s examine) a protecting plasma membrane, which if destroyed, may topic a plasma life type to dangerous radiation and unpleasantness. There are additionally as many sorts of plasma as there are sorts of hells. It’s potential to think about scorching overcrowded hells in addition to chilly remoted hells.
(Be aware that in plasma metaphysics concept, the idea of hell is considerably extra advanced. Whereas there are pure areas in Earth’s parallel plasmasphere that may be thought-about nice and unsightly relative to a selected life type, there are additionally culturally conditioned landscapes that are superimposed over these areas. Plasma, notably “tremendous plasma”, is very attentive to ideas. Therefore, the collective psychological forces emanating from a selected perception system in any specific group can generate a shared actuality that may appear as actual because the underlying pure area to the inhabitants of that perception system. The diploma of actuality skilled by the inhabitants current within the shared actuality is proportionate to the variety of individuals in the neighborhood and the length of the beliefs.)
Jinns are believed to be extra quite a few than people on Earth. The writer of Lawaami al-Anwaar al-Bahiya mentions a hadith as follows: “The jinn have kids in the identical approach that the sons of Adam have kids, however theirs are extra in quantity.” Hughes’ Dictionary of Islam states that the jinn “propagate their species, typically along side human beings; through which latter case, the offspring partakes of the character of each dad and mom.” This means the existence of jinn-human hybrids. A jinn-human hybrid can successfully dwell in two completely different “universes” and forestall the extermination of private identification by means of the dying of anyone physique.
For instance, it’s conceivable that the jinn part may separate itself from the human carbon and water-based physique on the dying of the latter after which propagate itself and its identification (which has now been enriched by the human experiences) by means of one other human in a kind of reincarnation. The jinn part may additionally separate itself when the human part is sleeping to go to different entities at its personal vitality stage. In a way, due to this fact, the genie leaves the bottle each time the hybrid sleeps and completely on dying.
Identical to people, particular person jinns additionally die and are due to this fact not immortal. Nonetheless, the non-public identification of a human-jinn hybrid can conceivably be sustained for a very long time by transferring the knowledge regarding the non-public identification or the “autobiographical reminiscence” of the hybrid backwards and forwards between the human and jinn parts whose life spans are barely out-of-phase. That is analogous to transferring a pc file from the laborious drive in your laptop to an exterior laborious drive and vice-versa. However there’s a lacking piece – the receiving human being should have a solution to generate a brand new bioplasma physique for the older jinn to switch the autobiographical reminiscence of the deceased human-jinn hybrid. The brand new human-jinn hybrid can then move on the recollections to the subsequent hybrid, and the cycles of existence repeat.
The human’s carbon-based physique has a mind that’s composed of billions of neurons and even bigger variety of neural networks that may encode huge quantities of data. Alternatively, within the jinn’s bioplasma physique, we are able to think about subtle holographic reminiscence techniques utilizing plasma liquid crystal. A digital holographic system has been constructed by scientists at Stanford College and complicated real-time liquid crystal holographic reminiscence techniques have been created by Penn State engineers. (The holographic reminiscence techniques of plasma life varieties are mentioned in additional element in Jay Alfred’s guide Our Invisible Our bodies, 2006.)
A pertinent query to ask is “How far again did this hybridization happen?” The additional again in time it occurred the extra in depth the hybridization. What are the implications of this on the human species?
Jinns make up just one class of life varieties composed of “smokeless hearth” in line with Islam. The opposite classes embrace the Janns, Shaitans, Ifrits and Marids. It’s believed that the Jinn developed from the extra primitive Jann. The method of (Darwinian) evolution due to this fact presumably additionally happens among the many Jinn.
Conclusion – Darwinian Evolution in Parallel Universes
If we strip away the folklore and superstitions which have mired the examine of the jinns by means of greater than a millennium we’ll see that there’s in all probability a kernel of fact that may be extracted from the literature to ascertain jinns as one class of plasma life varieties. The historical past and evolution of jinns and people have change into intertwined – a symbiosis which is prone to proceed into the longer term. To grasp the origins and evolution of human beings, we’ll due to this fact have to check jinns and different plasma-based life varieties inside a scientific framework, utilizing the most recent scientific analysis to increase the preliminary understanding gleaned from non secular sources. We could inevitably discover that the Darwinian tree of life, recognized in our universe solely not too long ago, each originates and extends into parallel universes.
