A Letter to Humans
( #2090, 9-16-2020, T: 9:30 AM)
Trump Phenomenon-1: Trump is Trump. Trump speaks his mind. Trump does what he promises. Trump talks simple. Trump is a businessman. Trump is a good negotiator. Trump is not perfect. Trump is not a politician. Trump is a winner. Trump loves the USA. Trump supports human rights. Trump is alone. Trump is this & that. Finally Trump’s accomplishments are in front of our eyes. So how come we have two completely different views about him. Please, allow us to clearly explain the rational reasons for existing two different views. Generally our outputs in form of thoughts, talks, deeds, words, views, & beliefs simply depend on our “Brain Systems” conditions & its input programs. Our “Brain Systems” receive input programs in various formats. Our “Brian Systems” develop under received input programs from our parents, schools & teachers, friends, relatives, neighbors, books, leaders, politicians, circumstances, & indoctrinations. Sadly, although Trump is one person with fairly known characteristics, yet he is viewed differently. Because, our outputs interpretations & judgments go through very complicated & interesting thinking process in our “Brain Systems”. The receiving information become filtered & analyzed through different channels. If our “Brain Systems” were programed with the same educational & training systems & developed under same environment, the final outputs of our human CPU would be all homogeneous. Doubly sadly, some of our input programs, due to “Catch 22”, are prejudices, biases & unhealthy. That is why a great deal of human resources has been wasted during our human-progress development. Triply sadly, the case with Mr. Trump is beyond normal human disagreements. Having such different views in our “Manmade Human World” is a wake-up call. It is an indication of horrific acrimony to our beautiful democracy. It is flagging up that, our “Manmade Human World” is in serious trouble. As per Fara-Hani’s “Worldology” disregard the degree of our maturity & our separate positions on the human-progress spectrum, we should always develop our “Manmade Human World” in compatibility with the designed “Human World”. It is not wise to wear “Blinders” to narrow & shorten our views. As per Fara-Hani’s “Worldology” leaders who are positioned on the low end of the human-progress spectrum are craved toward destruction rather than construction. Fourthly sadly, leaders promote the idea of “Money Talks & nothing else matters” in absence of “Human Characteristics” development. This promoted gesture becomes one of the effective factors in channeling our output energies toward the power of money than human understandings. As per Fara-Hani’s “Worldology” leaders need wisdom to properly & humanly perform their productive assigned tasks. Otherwise, anybody can easily instigate destructions. Negative criticism is not constructive. Constructive criticisms present logical alternatives. Please simply learn from 1979 Iran crisis, & don’t be fooled by offered deceiving freebies. Fara-Hani’s “Worldology” is a turning-point in our designed ongoing “Human Project” development in field of “Worldology”. Dr.Feming: 1928 was a turning point in our designed ongoing “Human Project” development in the field of “Medicine”, when “Dr. Fleming” discovered the “Penicillin”. https://youtu.be/7eJttzo51f8

End of Trump Phenomenon-1……………………………………………………………………………..……………….………………………………………Continued.
A Letter to Humans
( # 900, 6-8-2020, T: 10:00 AM)

Fara-Hani’s Worldology-1: My fellow classmates please wake up & smell the human breeze.
Warning: As per Fara-Hani’s “Worldology” people have been living completely off of the human path. People will not be able to live peacefully humanly until they learn the designed “Human World” & get back on human path. So please don’t waste your time looking for mirage.
As per Fara-Hani’s “Worldology” leaders should learn our designed “Human World” & should observe the designed ongoing “Human Project” development. Otherwise, leaders will never learn how to compliantly run our “Manmade Human World”. As a result people never get chances to taste their designed wonderful compliant enjoyments.
The Fara-Hani’s “Worldology” presently defines the designed “Human World” as an increasingly learned environment where the designed “Human Project” develops. The Fara-Hani’s “Worldology” stresses that the “Human World” has a noble design by unique designer the “PE”. It means that humans need to study & learn their “Human World” design & its contents. As per Fara-Hani’s “Worldology” there exist compliant techniques in our designed “Human World”. Development of our “Manmade Human World” should be compatible with designed “Human World”. The “Manmade Human World” is a progressive environment which develops by people. Educationally, we recommend that the students of this new generation be taught of the unprecedented Fara-Hani’s “Worldology”. Scientifically, in contrast to the existing outdated beliefs, Fara-Hani’s “Worldology” is compatible with the designed ongoing “Human World” & also it is in full compliance with the designed ongoing “Human Project” development. And perfectly, responds to the time-dependent average talented people’s needs. Expectedly, due to our premature distorted educational exercises, our leaders have not been educated to observe the designed ongoing “Human Project” development. “Human Project” is a project which after its initial design continues to develop in unspecified number of the fields. The key & main field in scope of work of this project is the ACME field of the “Human Characteristics” in which we develop from the human “infants” into the objectified human beings. The process of our developments in all the fields continues similar to relay running match, in which, each member of the running team passes the “Baton” to the next teammate runner at the end of field lap. As per Fara-Hani’s “Worldology” our global problems are not necessarily due to the many different manmade claimed issues such as; being poor or rich, white or black, republican or democrat, religious or not, capitalist or socialist & this or that. In fact, our problems are mostly due to our illiterateness about the designed “Human World” & ongoing “Human Project”. As per Fara-Hani’s “Worldology” our leaders’ mismanagements have been causing people to live like chickens without heads & circulating like marry-go-round. As per Fara-Hani’s “Worldology” our incompetent leaders typically initiate problems in our “Manmade Human World” & then they waste great deal of resources to fix them. As an example; President Carter & his accomplices committed the worst self-destructive judgement in 1979 in Iran & as a result the whole “Manmade Human World” has been suffering since then.
End of Fara-Hani’s Worldology-1……………………………………………………………………………………………………..…………………….Continued.
