This blog contains my thoughts on the above, reflecting the tradition of Shia Ismaili Islam: The material universe is part of the structure of truth, the ultimate nature of which it is the goal of religion to reach(monoreality). Among other things this blog asks two questions, what is the universe made up of and how does it operate? The answer to these questions finds its way onto a continuum of knowledge ranging from rationally-acquired knowledge to transcendental knowledge of the divine.
My blog is constructed within a scaffolding of the Al Sijistani-Khusraw cosmological doctrine, allowing for the discoveries of modern, empirical science to fit neatly into its overall structure. Abu Yakub Al Sijistani and Nasir Khusraw were Ismaili cosmologists, philosophers, theologians and poets who lived during the period of the 14th to 18th Fatimid Ismaili Imam-Caliphs in Egypt a thousand years ago.
