Abstract thinking...

Do you ever wonder what is the most complex and wonderful part of the human body?? (And not that you dirty people!) I am talking about HUMAN BRAIN. This abstract thought filled my mind when i checked out a report a fortnight back.

To summarize that report in fewer words...."Although human's anatomical and physical structure is getting weaker on one hand, his brain is becoming stronger and faster on the other!" Its true....i mean...how often do you see a 5 yr old working out all the applications of a smart phone these days...quite often right?!!

There is another newspaper clipping saved in my mind of Times of India dated March 3rd, 2013 with caption "Mind reading...a reality!" It talks about the huge potential of a brain to perform Telepathy! I know it ll sound a bit bizarre to most of you readers...but m not  making this up. As a life sciences student i do know a bit about how brain and neurosignals work. And i became more interested when o discussed the functioning of it with one of my friend that i really tried to understand how it works...how we can do multi tasking...how we see a dream...how we remember things etc etc...but believe me the more you try to find out the more you find that its a puzzle almost impossible to unravel (not that even the most efficient researcher working on Cognitive skills can provide you with solid answers!) The truth is "nature has its own ways:...something that may be science can never understand.

There has to be some sort of supernatural power (I don't say god...because some of you may happen to be atheist) which has planned everything, currently watching and smirking at naive humans who think they can solve all the mysteries of micro and macroscopic world !!

  1. I couldnt agree more.
    i have myself been working on a research paper since a couple months trying to explain neurological process using quantum physics and trust me- "the more one reads, the less one knows" stands true when it comes to human brain and its scope.. :)
    Thoughtful observations and nice post..:)

  3. CALLING ON THE NAME OF THE LORD?

    On the Day of Pentecost Peter quoted the prophet Joel (Acts 2:21'And it shall be that everyone who call on the name of the Lord will be saved.')

    To call on the name of the Lord is to acknowledge the authority and power of the Lord, and follow in obedience by meeting the terms of pardon.

    The apostle Peter did not tell those on the Day of Pentecost to say the "sinner's prayer." Saying the "sinner's prayer" is not calling on the name of the Lord.

    Peter preached the death, burial, and bodily resurrection of Jesus. Peter declared the Jesus was Lord and Christ. (Acts 2: 22-26) They obviously believed Peter's preaching because they asked the question(Acts 2:37 ....."Brethren what shall we do?")
    Peter did not tell them to say the "sinner's prayer." What was Peter's response to their question? (Acts 2:38 Peter said to them, "Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.)


    THE NARRATIVE OF CALLING ON THE NAME OF THE LORD.
    1. FAITH: Believe in the death, burial, and bodily resurrection of Jesus. Accept Jesus as Lord and Savior.
    2. CONFESSION: Acknowledge Jesus as the Christ and the Son of God.
    3. REPENTANCE: Make the commitment to turn from sin and turn toward God.
    4. WATER BAPTISM: Be immersed into Christ for the forgiveness of your sins.


    HOW DID THE ETHIOPIAN EUNUCH CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD? (Acts 8:25-40


    1. Philip preached Jesus to him. (Acts 8:35)
    2. He confessed Jesus as The Christ the Son of God. (Acts 8:37)
    3. He was baptized in water. Immersed by Philip. (Acts 8:38-39)
    The Ethiopian eunuch did not say the sinner's pray nor was he asked to do so by Philip.


    Romans 10:13 for "WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED."


    Romans 10:9-10 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; 10 for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.


    To call on the name of the Lord is to acknowledge His power and authority and confess Him as Lord and Christ . (Acts 2:26,Acts 8:37, Romans 10:9-10) To call on the Name of the Lord is to repent and be baptized. (Acts 2:38)


    WE ARE TOLD TO CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD TO BE SAVED.


    We are never told we are saved by "faith only." We are never told that saying the "sinner's prayer" is calling on the name of the Lord.
