Assalamua alaikum Helahel
I would like to preface this posting with an observation from Epictetus from Phrygia/present day Turkey who said.
Epictetus : Men are disturbed not by things, but by the view which they take of them.
Epictetus : Appearances to the mind are of four kinds. Things either are what they appear to be; or they neither are, nor appear to be; or they are, and do not appear to be; or they are not, and yet appear to be. Rightly to aim in all these cases is the wise man's task.

Please do forgive the nudity in the splash screen and elsewhere in the video-brothers and sisters please lower your gazes.
