...; Ebola virus intensifies its terror attack on human society. As of 27 January 2015, the World Health Organization (WHO) has reported a total of 22,159 suspected cases and 8,844 deaths, though the WHO believes that this substantially understates the magnitude of the outbreak. This is the first Ebola outbreak to reach epidemic proportions; past outbreaks were brought under control within a few weeks. Extreme poverty, a dysfunctional healthcare system, a mistrust of government officials after years of armed conflict, and the delay in responding to the outbreak for several months have all contributed to the failure to control the epidemic...

...; Professor Henry Corbin (1903-1978) in his book History of Islamic Philosophy writes: "The sixth Imam, Ja'far al-Sadiq, specified further: 
'Our cause is a secret (sirr) within a secret, a secret of something which remains hidden, a secret which may only be disclosed by another secret; a secret upon a secret which is supported by a secret.' And again: Our cause is the truth and the truth of truth (haqq al-haqq); it is the exoteric aspect, and the esoteric aspect of the exoteric aspect, and the esoteric aspect of the esoteric aspect. It is the secret, and the secret of something which remains hidden, a secret which is supported by a secret.' The significance of these remarks was already observed in a poem written by the fourth Imam, 'Ali Zayn al-'Abidin (d. 95/714): 'I conceal the jewels of my Knowledge — For fear that some ignorant man, on seeing the truth, should crush usO Lord! if I were to reveal one pearl of my gnosis — They would say to me: are you then a 
worshipper of idols? — And there would be Muslims who would see 
justice in the shedding of my blood! — They find abominable the most beautiful thing they are offered.' 

2. One could make many citations of a similar import. They testify 
most admirably to the ethos of Shiism, to the awareness it possesses of being the esotericism of Islam; and it is impossible, historically 
speaking, to go back further than the teachings of the Imams in seeking for the sources of Islamic esotericism..."

...; "The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Mathematics in the Natural Sciences" is the title of an article published in 1960 by the physicist Eugene Wigner. In the paper, Wigner observed that the mathematical structure of a physical theory often points the way to further advances in that theory and even to empirical predictions.

I want to become Imam Jafar Sadiq : )

Explanation to those who did not get what I mean: I'd like to be similar to those great multimath who knew a lot of different branches of science of their age e.g. Ali, Jafar Sadiq, Avicenna and so forth. It is never possible to learn everything, but it is possible to optimize the use of lifetime, Universities and other structures are not optimized and cannot offer the best suggestions at all.
