The Intervention Theory: Why We Have Infinite Options for Action

"O you believe! answer (the call of) Allah and his Apostle when he calls you to that which gives you life; and know that Allah intervenes between man and his heart, and that to Him you shall be gathered".[Quran-8:24]

What we can learn from the verse of Quran mentioned above is that each agent, whenever he wants (desires, likes, intends,...) can refer to his heart for understanding, thereby going through Allah 'The Omnipresence'. As much as he (the agent) is aware of The Being which he is passing through, he certainly knows consciously how to process the information coming from or going to his mind. Human beings are totally under the control of an 'Intervening Being', and that is why we should, and even must, call him the only intelligent robot-creature. We all act, do, work, and think just by his permission. Because the only way by which we can aware of our mental states is referring to our hearts that is occupied by Him, The Allah.

Tehran, Tehran, Iran (Islamic Republic of)

I studied first Machanical Engineering (in USA), and then humanities in Iran (Philosophical Theology, Modern Logic). I finished my Ph.d. in 2004 majoring on "Preference Logic". I used to teach mathematics, physics, geometry, and English, but now I am working in IRIB University as a professor (teaching philosophy, logic and philosophy of science) and the head of postgraduate department. Actually, my recent interest is modifying classical preference concepts & rules by fuzzy logic through the "Invention Theory". I find this to be definitely a multi-disciplinary area of research and study, and I might need some help from some high research centers to offer me an opportunity to work on my project.
