Four Thinkers and Civilization Stations:

  • Musa al-Khorezmi,
  • Farabi,
  • al-Biruni,
  • Ibn Sina

These four thinkers, who lived in the 250-year period between 780-1037, were the most productive of our Founding Thinkers and produced works in 30 disciplines. Harezmi and Biruni established the science of Indology and gave us the knowledge of the gigantic  Indian Civilization  .

Oğuz Kağan, Bilge Tonyukuk, Bilge Kagan and Tonyukuk and  Turkish Contemplation, which acquired the knowledge of Chinese Civilization,  then   synthesized the Indian and Iranian Civilizations . All these Civilization stations have been inhabited for many centuries and our knowledge has been deepened.

The Treaty of Kasrı Şirin and the following Egyptian Campaign blocked the way of Eastern and Turkestan resources, causing our thinking to freeze; the gap has been filled with Ashariism, which is contrary to our sociology, transferred from the South (Egypt).

The geographies of our Founding 20 Scholars are 10 ancient countries that traverse Greater Asia;

  1. Chinese
  2. Mongolia
  3. Kyrgyzstan
  4. Kazakhistan
  5. India
  6. Afghanistan
  7. Uzbekistan
  8. Iranian
  9. Iraq
  10. Turkey

Contribution of 20 Founding Scholars;

  • Sciences: 15 disciplines
  • Social Sciences: 28 disciplines
  • Religious Studies: in 5 religious science fields
  • Art & Literature: 2 branches of art & literature

50 branches in total..

The fact that the number of 50 branches shows is that we were once on a constantly developing line in the branches of science and art.

Just as the Persian cultural environment in Transoxiana   turned into Turkestan, the Greek cultural environment in Anatolia  transformed into Turkey .

Hoping to grasp the breadth of the Turk’s world of contemplation as soon as possible….
