Mr. Kambiz Hakim was born in Tehran Iran, at the age of fourteen, He went to England for his education. In 1968 He moved to New York and studied Engineering at the New York University School of Engineering, which He graduated from in 1972. He lived and worked in New York until 2009, during that time he served on the Local Spiritual Assembly for 28 years. In 2009 He moved to Los Angeles CA where he currently lives today. The subject of the Purpose of Creation has always interested him, and finally, after many years of studying the Baha'i writings, He was able to bring together what he believes to be the most relevant aspects of his personal journey and understanding in this compilation booklet titled, "The Purpose of Creation."
In today's world, there is a widespread school of thought in which the human being is considered to be an entirely material entity. In this view, even the apparently non-material aspects of a human being, such as the mind, the intellect, the imagination etc, are regarded merely as the results of chemical processes orginating in the brain and body. To this school of thought, 'Abdu'l-Bahá poses the question, 'Where then can one find in man this mind that resides in him and whose existence is beyond doubt Were you to examine the human body with the eye, the ear, or the other senses, you would fail to find it, even though it clearly exists. Space,' He says, is a quality of material things and that which is not material does not partake of space... Intelligence does not partake of the quality of space, though it is related to man's brain. The intellect resides there, but not materially. Search in the brain, you will not find the intellect.'
