In a thought experiment, Shahid Nawaz arrives at the unity of knowledge. He creates a fictional character, Mr. Monologue. Mr. Monologue knows everything. He solves all problems of the mankind. H claims that there is no God. He is only noticed after he commits suicide. It is then when people think that Mr. Monologue was a messenger of God. How could God send a messenger whose very message is that He does not exist? This question impacts Shahid Nawaz so much that he becomes mentally ill and diagnosed with bipolar disorder. He is an atheist when stable. In mania, he becomes psychotic and strongly believes that Mr. Monologue is real, who will one day emerge as a prophet. About the authorShahid Nawaz received his Ph.D. in information physics from University at Albany, State University of New York.
