Please tell us about yourself :
-I am an ordinary
person. I cannot think of any special characteristics that I
have, I can say that I am not more different than the grocer on
What is your job? Author?
I am a simple citizen.
Any one who has been given a corner to write in a newspaper
or a periodical is titled as a researcher-writer. In actual
fact, to be a ‘’Researcher’’ one needs to conclude in depth
studies and cover extensive work. Moreover, any person who
possesses this title has to publish a thesis, a book. Such an
academic title is a luxury for me. Taking all of these points
into consideration I must admit that I do not like a style of
writing that is full of anecdotes. My objective is to connect
the old and the new and make a whole, form a unity.
All right, but nowadays anyone
is named as a writer like Mr.Ahmet or Mr.Mehmet what would you
say about this?
First of all I must say
that along with their nobility that comes from the family
through the genes, some individuals can fight with the dominant
culture, however I lack such a talent. Therefore, now, I am
spending incredible effort for learning and developing the art
of writing. I do not have any problems with others, I am
concerned only with myself. This is my duty, the objective in
my creation. I do not know what Mr.Mehmet has written but, when
it comes to the subject of what Ahmet has written I think that
they are tiny particles from the science of Allah. To tell
about these to others makes me happy. In short, it has a very
distant connection with the science of Allah.
Is it the same even if it is
given by means of Mekr (artifice)?
Well, any action that is
made imitatively is mekr, isn’t it ? Even, in the prayers there
is a mechanical aspect. What do you think is the mental state
of the one the one who has not returned the trust back to
its owner? How does he live?
Isn’t this accepted as
the greatest sin? Can you find out the connection between
these? The reflection of the concepts on the individual should
be observed carefully.
Do you like your articles?
As I have mentioned
before, please be sure that I do not call these as articles.
However, even if I say that I do not like them there is nothing
that I can do. I do not have the capacity to make extensive
research. I do not have a variety of concepts in my mind. I
hope that in time I can make a better gathering of the concepts
in what I write. In my opinion to be an author is to reflect to
the readers the creativity, the inventive aspect in the person
who is doing the writing.
Is it correct that you are a
It wouldn’t be
considered as too much giving if I say that I think of an
individual more than anyone who is very close to him and I
form my actions accordingly. At the first stage my behaviour
gives the impression that I am being dominating although I do
not intend to be like that. However, I have been criticized
very much about this, so I have given up acting in such a
Do you like gossip?
Gossip gives me
physiological pain. I do not know if it is necessary to repeat
that gossip is very harmful from the mystical point of view too.
However, if the gossip is scientific I love it and I do
everything that I can so that everyone can know about it.
At what level is your interest
I follow the football
games very closely as I can realize the act of reading best
during these games. I am a supporter of Fenerbahçe, but I
admire Galatasaray. You can say ‘’This is a wrong mentality!
What kind of a thinking is this?’’ My answer is that my
life is not based on ‘’sentimentality’’. I do not have the
habit of magnifying the correct things and make them shine and
blacken the wrong. The owner of my innate program has moulded
my dough to enable me have a free conscience and labeled it
with telling the truth.
What do you like most?
To like my enemy and
form a whole, unite with the individual that I like and admire.
Are you talking about a sexual
Sexual connections are
not my style. What I want to say is to establish the concept of
wholeness, unity in the consciousness and to share it. This
does not have any connections with the physical body. It is
difficult to explain it, it should be lived.
Whom do you like?
I like the ones who
leave a mark. Starting with Hz.Rasul of Allah (this is only
for the sake of explaining, because I do not dare to be so
sentimental and like him), Ahmed Hulusi, Stephen Hawking,
Einstein, Isaac Newton, Muhittin-i Arabi, Çetin Altan,
Abdulkerim Ceyli (Hz), Abdülkadir Geylani (Hz), Tarkan, Omar
Hayyam, Yunus Emre, Yahya Kemal, Ernest Hemingway, Dostoyevski
and all the others which I cannot remember now.
This is a rather mixed picture, but my favorites are these.
From which level do you look at
I think that the most
logical way of thinking is to make a concept get reflected in
the most objective manner instead of going into character
analysis, confusing psychological solutions and placing emphasis
Since some time I have
been witnessing some awkward behaviour patterns. Some of the
humans have stopped getting pleasure from life and they only
deal with gossip and with the people around them.
What do you think about the
The millennium cannot
be a passion, a mania. It is the observation of the functions
of the brain at a high level of technology. Anyone who can get
adapted to this can reap the fruits of the düþünsel/bilim
What do you think of sainthood?
I can say that it is my
ideal. Sainthood is based on the art of perceiving the truth.
However, my old age seems to be a negative factor for making
advancements regarding this and I am not in a position to say
‘’the next time’’ (as there wouldn’t be any next time).
What is the message that you
want to give in your articles?
It is noticed that in
the people who cannot make a sufficient criticism of their
wishes there is some arrogance. Such arrogant actions are a set
back for maturity. The humans should know how to maintain their
stability no matter what happens. The relations with others
should not give the impression of ‘’a dog fight’’. Moreover,
as a result of training and experiences we acquire the ability
‘’to be able to live alone/ to be self sufficient’’. At the same
time we should resemble the life to a race and think of
handing over the flag from hand to hand.
What about the taboos?
In order to fly, to have
wings, to be free and to feel lighter it is necessary to
overcome the taboos. You start as everything, but in the end
you should accept to be nothing. However, if you are choosing
to act like a hero, then the situation would be different.
Do you mean that you are
I cannot be nothing!
What are you afraid of?
I am afraid of the
things that have happenned to me.
The things that you are afraid
of; have they ever hapenned to you?
The individual should
accept anything at any time.
