Towards A New Paradigm
for Islamic Hermeneutics*:
Money Needed for the Publication of:
Quran and Commentaries—
Suras of Knowledge/Suras of Duality

When I picked up the Quran for the first time in 1978—this was some 3½ years after I had received the Revelation of “the resurrection” and some 4½ years after I had received the Vision of the “Son of man”—it immediately became clear to me that there was a problem:

Suras and individual verses conveying the Knowledge Revealed through these two specific Revelations were juxtaposed, sometimes abruptly, with those demanding violence against the unbelievers, those dealing with the minutiae of laws and regulations governing interpersonal or social interactions, or those describing the history and personalities involved in previous Revelations; a problem sharply exacerbated by the fact that, over the past 38 years, it has become increasingly clear to me that the Muslim religious officials have no direct Knowledge—or even hearsay knowledge—of either these Revelations; and, thus, are emphatically incapable of either determining the significant differences between these two categories of suras or establishing the priority or significance of one over the other.

And, as a result, Islamic theology is now afflicted with a fatally-flawed hermeneutic; a fatally-flawed hermeneutic that has resulted in both Islamic terrorism and Islamophobia.

In a determined effort, then, to address the quite serious problems inherent to Islamic hermeneutics, as well as decisively defeat the twin evils of Islamic terrorism and Islamophobia, the proposed book will include every sura and verse from the Quran, while differentiating the suras and verses of Knowledge from the those employing the language of duality.

Those suras and individual verses conveying Knowledge will be topically organized, separated into those suras and verses conveying the Knowledge received through the Revelations of “the resurrection” from those conveying the Knowledge received through the Vision; while the suras and verses conveying the language of duality (and, thus, conflict) will be sequentially organized to preserve as much as possible their original place in the Quran itself.

Crucial to understand, of course, is that it is typically the suras of Knowledge which are selectively and relentlessly ignored and censored by the media and monotheistic religious officials; while it is the suras of duality which are selectively and relentlessly propagated by Islamic terrorists, Islamophobes and the media specifically for the purpose of inciting and exacerbating conflict and violence.

Michael (Chapter 12, verse 1 of the Book of Daniel, Sura 2, verse 98 of the Quran, Column XVII of the Scroll of the War of the Sons of Light & Chapter 3, verse 12 of the Revelation of John) and:

Sarah-->Elijah-->John the Baptist-->Mohammed-->Elizabeth (Chapter 12, verse 13 of the Book of Daniel and Chapter 11, verse 14 & Chapter 17, verses 10-13 of the Gospel of Matthew(1987) (7th Church)

*Towards A New Paradigm of Consciousness (2011):

demonstrated the existence of a third, non-dualistic “observing consciousness” beyond the dualistic consciousness of the “self” and the ‘thinker’; thereby establishing the basis for a new paradigm for Islamic hermeneutics, which is of utmost necessity in resolving, as quickly as possible, the twin evils of Islamic terrorism and Islamophobia.
