Yitzhaq Hayutman is showing the world how he wants to position an airborne hologram over the Dome of the Rock, a gold-capped shrine that’s one of the most holy sites in the Islamic world. He has two big ideas, two ways to engineer the apocalypse. The first: require hovering a holographic temple by setting up an array of high-powered, water-cooled lasers and fire them into a transparent cube suspended beneath a blimp.
The future Temple which we are expecting, is built and perfected and will be revealed and descend from heaven.
– Talmudic scholar Rashi, 11th century
The ephemeral, flickering image, he says, would fulfill an ancient, widely revered Jewish prophecy that the temple will descend from the heavens as a manifestation of light. Hayutman hopes to finance the project with some of the proceeds from a $20 million patent-infringement suit he and his partners have filed against Palm.
The rest of that money would be poured into Hayutman’s second idea for jump-starting the end-times: a virtual temple within a massively multiplayer online role-playing game.
From my point of view, I don’t see why he needs the blimp or the cube. If the lasers are bright enough that they need to be water-cooled, their beam intersections should be visible in normal atmospheric. As far as the game goes, I don’t see why they can’t just use the open-source Quake or Quake II engines and the free level- and object-building tools that are already out there.
What’s fascinating about his vision of the apocalypse is that it’s not the bloodbath that fundamentalist Christians imagine. It is the end of the current world – with all its inequity and injustice – and the beginning of a new, perfect Earth ruled by the Messiah. The trigger will be a peaceful, technology-fueled spiritual revolution. A velvet apocalypse. Sounds little bit like George Lucas’s Star Wars, perhaps the future is not so distance.
Taking this a chace to reveal the message of the almighty ALLAH which he sent through his Rasool Muhammad–Do not waste your precious time in the foolish and unuseful charms of the world.Try to get yourself busy with the Zikrullah and also spreading the Deen-i-ALLAH.
Whoever reads this message Plz realize that we are in this world with an objective and that is to know the almighty ALLAH and spread the teachings of MUHAMMAD.
This will lead you to success and Prosperity.
So this is what I had to say.Rest depends on you to believe or not.
I request you to start believing.
Jazzak Allah Mr. Qureshi
Uh uh. Right. “I request you to start believing” And if I decide not then what?
Islam is not only bull, it’s the most filthy and violent religion around. And that’s saying a lot.
Anyways, hope nobody gets blown up over this one.
(As for the unbelievers, their deeds are like a mirage in the desert that the thirsty traveler supposes to be water, but when he comes near to it finds that it is nothing. But he finds that Allah (has always been present) with him, and that He will pay him his account in full; for Allah is swift in reckoning.
Or else, like the depths of darkness in a vast deep ocean, made yet more dark by wave billowing over wave, with clouds above it all: Depths of darkness, layer upon layer, (so that) when one holds up his hand, he can hardly see it. Indeed, those from whom Allah withholds light will find no light at all.
Are you not aware that it is Allah Whose limitless glory all creatures that are in the heavens and earth extol, even the birds as they spread out their wings? Each of them knows how to pray to Him and to glorify Him; and Allah has full knowledge of all that they do.
To Allah belongs the dominion over the heavens and the earth, and to Allah will all return.) (An-Nur 24:39-42)
The only thing i admire about islam is the dome of the rock.
There is much to say in favour of the Dome of the Rock. Most people (including Moslems) do not have the clue about it and confuse it with the El-Aqsa Mosque. Simply stated, it was never designed as a Mosque.
In historic fact, it is a monument to another phase of Islam, much closer to its original intention, that of the Ummayads (who were later denounced as heretic in Orthodox Islam). Building the Dome reinstated Jerusalem – rather than Mecca – as the site for the First and the Ultimate Qibla. It was open to all Abrahamic religions, was designed by neo-Pythagorean, non-Muslem master masons and employed Jews in its service.
And there is much more to say about its possible positive future role.
Dome of the rock is a cover to allah power where in the dome they hid the floating rick which the prophet muhammad s.a.w sat on.since that day the rock has stay afloat because it was not allowed to follow the prophet during isra’ mikraj. The monument was built as a cover to try and hide allah’s power and the truth in islam
YA ALLAH !!!
God is the GREATEST, so all you people can keep contemplating and pondering your wishful thinking, but ultimately, if Allah subanha wa ‘ta’ala wills something, it will be, and if he wills not, the it will not be, and if you think the dome of the rock is the greatest thing about islam, then i pray that god shed light into your oblivious mind, may Alla bless the palestinians AMEEN!
I think this idea is flawed. God does not need anybody’s “virtual” laser temple crap to fulfill real prophecies. Thank God Jesus wasn’t a hologram.
and some day that temple will be built again for real and Allah won’t be able to do a thing about it.
God does not live in Temples, nor does he need mans service, seeing it was God who founded the heavens and the earth. The true temple of God is in the Heavens and is not made by the hand of men. God desires mercy and not sacrifice. The stone which the builders rejected, has become the chief cornerstone. This was done by God and it is marvelous in our sight.
