From a scientific viewpoint we wittness that contemporarty science definitely confirms thet the fundamental condition of our existence is to revolve.There is no object,no being which does not revolve and the shared similarity among beings is the revolutions of the electrons,protons and noutrons in the atoms,which constitite the structure of each of them.
As a consequence of this similarity ,everything revolves and man carries on his live ,his very existence by means of the revolution of the electron in the atoms ,structural stones of his body,by the revolution of his blood, by his coming from the earth and return to it, by his his revolving with earth itself.
However, all of these are natural ,unconscious revolutions .But man is possessor of a mind and intelligence which distinguishes him from and makes him superior to other being.Thus the ‘’Whirling Dervish’’ or Semazen couses the mind to perticipate in the shared similarity and revolution of all other beings…Otherwise ,the Sema ceremony represents a mystical journey of man’s spirspiritual ascent througt mind and love to ’’ Perfect’’Turning towards the truth,his growth through love, desert his ego ,find the truth and arrive to the ‘Perfect ‘ then he return from his spiritual journey as a man who reached maturity and a greater perfection, so as to love and to be of service to the whole of creation ,to all creatures without discrimination of believes ,races, classes and nations.
