Equilibrium | Equilibria | Equipoise


Thiiiiiiissss is another laid-back rambling.

This space has to has this because I'm only human and I never carry a 'holier than thou' persona ever. That's why we have got all kinds of stuffs here. Take it or leave it. But some people refuse to leave yet. A little bird tells me, we still have a couple of spy-readers [if you will]. That's alright, we love all and serve all. So to speak. LOL.  

Anyway, one of my all time favorite word is EQUILIBRIUM. It's the best word there is in the entire subject of economics. Believe me, I studied economics before. 

For the benefit of our young readers [my nephews/nieces] let's copy the definitions for equilibrium as provided by

Equilibrium whose plural is equilibriums or equilibria means:
  • a state of rest or balance due to the equal action of opposing forces.
  • equal balance between any powers, influences etc.
  • a stable condition in which forces cancel one another.
  • mental or emotional balance.
  • in chemistry, it refers to the condition existing when a chemical reaction and its reverse reaction proceed at equal rates.   

It is a state we should aim for - equilibrium - so that we are in a stable, balanced state, mentally and emotionally.

When you get striked and get off-balanced, you should try to strike it off by striking back, in a smart and positive manner, so that you could reclaim your equilibrium and get to go back to your default value, hence attain equipoise. And smile.

Therefore, to strike back, does not necessarily carry a negative connotation. It's all about striking a balance.

Thank God for equilibria.


Of course Allah is All-Knowing. Allah knows better than the best spy anyone could hire. Allah in His wisdom sometimes hide certain things from us because He knows that we might faint from shock, should He tells/shows us every little thing. So we better learn to surrender, accept His decree and don't be so arrogant.

By the way, I think people say: Allah is All-Knowing, Allah is the Best Knower or Allah is the All-Knower. People don't say Allah is "Most Knower". My English is not that good, so correct me, if I am wrong.
