Ramez El-Shishy: Rogue Assumptions

By: Ramez Salah Abdullah El-Shishy *

   Because the world doesn't move in a predictable pattern, we may be surprised by the many changes taking place in our societies and lives, forcing us to stop interpreting repetitive behaviours in a very disturbing rhythm that underestimates the mood and characteristics of certain people. Underestimating a particular group contradicts the document released on February 4, 2019 in the United Arab Emirates by the Sheikh of Al-Azhar, Ahmed Al-Tayeb, and Pope Francis, which calls for a peaceful world in which there is no difference between one person and another or the rejection of one sect in favour of another. It is a declaration of human fraternity that doesn't include or carry a conflictual hobbzoic life such as the polemics that have spread since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, especially among introverts and extroverts.

   Many rogue assumptions have prevailed and still prevail, as some have seen that it is unfair to see in the era of the pandemic that extroverts suffer and introverts flourish, and it is also unfair in the pre-pandemic era to say that introverts are hostile to society, while extroverts are social, and man is social by nature, as Ibn Khaldun says, but the level of this condition varies greatly according to the nature of each personality's system, as well as the existence of wishes in the post-pandemic era that extroverts They equate introverts in terms of adapting to the burdens of life's crises, especially since we are in an age where virtual communication plays a similar role, sometimes more than 'De Facto' physical communication.

   This is certainly not consistent with Ibn Khaldun's preface: "Man is a social being by nature". Perhaps we can now often say that man assumes and lives his life. He assumes what he can do when he needs to do sometimes, and then he goes for that thing he supposed. So, man may be a hypothetical being by nature, he assumes that others are beautiful when he needs them, and may assume that being away from them is a "booty" when he doesn't need them, and then practicing what he assumed in satisfaction and pleasure. It is a dark assumption to assume that pre-pandemic human beings from China, New Zealand and Australia east to California on the west coast of the United States, and from the Canadian and American territories in the Arctic to the south of the African continent, assume that isolation is a disease associated with introvertedism, but such an assumption is intellectual nonsense; So is the same conflict between capitalism and socialism. Their belief mixed with unconsciousness has misplaced their vision of the reality of many introverted characters, because if we look at the reality of their belief, we find them looking at the introvert as either a selfish person who skimps on others even with a good word, or a conceit filled with the falsehood of feeling depressed, contented, afraid of something he sees in the eyes of those who meet him, or unsure that his assistant can repel the blows he receives when he thinks of interacting with some of the predestining groups. They make an exception and classify outside the rule and the game for those who think and manage to accomplish what they have to accomplish from science, invoking, retreating.

   The reader of Susan Kane's "Calm"[1] will undoubtedly realize that the era we are currently experiencing is one of an introverted flavor, bearing in mind that this work was published in 2012, but the highlights of the points Discussed, it shows without a doubt how far the American writer looks to the future of the world through her simple view of both the introverted and the extroverted pole before the pandemic and the repercussions of this view of the post-pandemic world that we conclude These include the superiority of the introverted pole as a result of the optimal exploitation of its capabilities that suit the circumstances of the times, the suffering of the extroverted because it is not accustomed to its presence in such circumstances, and the difficulty of adapting their character systems to the virtual world of the pandemic.

   After all, most of the human societies in which we coexist and live cannot remain the same. The same is true even for assumptions, and the absence of such rogue and ungood assumptions cannot be expected. The multiple criteria and assumptions of the meaning of things that are around us, whether they are true and rational or not at all, are usually understood, interpreted, and analyzed by all human minds very differently. The pandemic has been left beyond falsification or denial with its surreal rhythms, which are a true individual test of the soul. It is just a real and perilous human experience that has left an unforgettable perception and knowledge in groups that are not so few that the word "human" must always come first before any society and before any rogue assumptions and norms.
