    After more than six months of filming and countless tweaks, Jan van IJken was able to shrink what would take around four weeks in nature down to just six minutes of otherworldly beauty. If you'd like to learn more, read on here: https://on.natgeo.com/2DVOnUN

    This itself is proof that Allah (God) exists. No way nature can code something in such complexity with such details and functions for every single cell. Just how humans code for programming, undoubtedly, obviously a superior being coded our DNA. No way nature did it randomly. Randomness is out of question. Claiming that the universe is “random” just indirectly means no one has purpose tbh. You know what’s really cool? The whole making of the universe along with knowledge that scientists were clueless about centuries ago, a millennium ago, is all written in the holy book of muslims (Qur’an) How is this even possible? Qur’an is from a MILLENNIUM+ years ago!! Scientists recently are coming up with theories that’s ALREADY stated in the Qur’an centuries and a thousand years ago!! SubhanAllah. Something cooler? Allah has challenged anyone to create something like the Qur’an, its 2022 and no one has done it bc its impossible. Why am I saying all this? It’s important to search for the truth and find the actual purpose of being alive in an universe where we know no end, before it’s too late. You live once, im sure its not to jus do something temporary for this world and die. It’s more than that. More than creating a change in this world, this world that will get destroyed at one point (even proven by science) I’m sure we aren’t useless like that. Research and keep looking. Don’t stop. Goodluck.

    The CELL and each cell within it knows exactly what to do… One must read William Walker Atkinson's "Advanced Lessons in Yoga Philosophy", where he explains the role of cells and how they coordinate with each other.
    Salamander is actually the Control which existed right from beginning and all cells under it have their Individual life.
