Historic recurrence is the repetition of similar events in history. The concept of historic recurrence has variously been applied to the overall history of the world (e.g., to the rises and falls of empires, or birth of world leaders), to repetitive patterns in the history of a given polity — and to any two specific events which bear a striking similarity.
Hypothetically, in the extreme — the concept of historic recurrence assumes the form of the Doctrine of Eternal Recurrence, which has been written about in various forms since antiquity and was described in the prehistoric days.
There are only patterns, patterns on top of patterns, patterns that affect other patterns. Patterns hidden by patterns. Patterns within patterns.
If you watch closely, history does nothing — but repeat itself.
What we call chaos is just patterns we haven’t recognized. What we call random is just patterns we can’t decipher. what we can’t understand we call nonsense.
Those who do not know say, “Why does Allah not speak to us or there come to us a sign?” Thus spoke those BEFORE THEM like their words. Their hearts resemble each other. We have shown clearly the signs to a people who are certain [in faith] | QS 2:118.
What we can’t read we call gibberish. He gave us yet the free will — still we’ve chosen to dispute over the straight path. Curiosity got you all haunted? Decode them the scientific ways.
C’est La Vie! 🙂
