The number 7 seems to appear numerous times in Islamic text. This recent realisation has made this association extremely fascinating..
1- 7 circumambulation (Ta’waf) around the Kaa’bah during Hajj
2- 7 walks (back and forth) between Al-Safa and Al-Marwah
3- 7 heavens
4- When the Prophet (peace be upon him) was taken to heaven during Miraj he reported to have seen an angel with 70 000 heads, each head having 70 000 mouths, each mouth having 70 000 tongues and each tongue speaking 70 000 languages; all involved in reciting the praises of Allah Almighty (can't remember the reference for this)
5- 7 pebbles to be used each time for stoning of the Jamarat’
6- 70 000 angels write good deeds for one who recites durood shareef
Morpheus: .."You’re here because you know something. What you know, you cannot explain but you feel it. You felt it your entire life. You don’t know what it is, but it’s there like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what i am talking about?
Neo: ‘The Matrix’
Morpheus: Do you want to know what it is?
The matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they'd be asked the "half empty or half full" question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: "How heavy is this glass of water?"
Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.
She replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it's not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn't change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes."
