Originally I wanted the rice weevils to be part of the drinks. I was thinking of this David Lynch insect thing, eating away at the edifice of humanity. So I decided to make it more symbolic. NA: The cocktails are very specific. You get the most professional mixologists on the planet to work with you; you send them ideas and they come back to you with amazing possibilities. I was interested in messing around with the way you drink the cocktails- not only must they taste good, there must be a different form of drinking happening.

Why do these concerns inform your work so often? NA: Why? A:What performances will be happening in the space? So I started by talking to people from the local music scene and drawing up people in an intuitive way who I think would work with this project. So Ive been talking to friends of mine, bands that I like, asking them to perform. The idea is you have the space which is like a shell or enclosure, which gives you a certain kind of environment and ambience, very walled in and insulated from the outside.

Availability All In Stock Employing the ancient Iranian tree metaphor and its seasonal renewal, he explained in his major work, the Persian Bayan literally, explication [of the past scriptures] that religious dispensations come in cycles so as to renew for humankind the "pure religion," a concept with a long history in "esoteric" Islam. In his theory of progressive revelation he compared the successive dispensations to the life cycle of a tree with a spring of inception and early growth, a summer of strength and maturation, an autumn of gradual decline and decrepitude, and a winter of barrenness and death.
This key notion of continuity in revelation not only legitimized the Bayan religion but recognized and anticipated future prophetic occurrences after the Bab.
Absolut presents Nadim Abbas: Apocalypse Postponed
Contrary to the prevailing Islamic notion of a cataclysmic end, the Bab believed that the "time cycle is in progress. This sense of collective enterprise was apparent from the start in the nascent organization of the movement and in the beliefs and conduct of early Babis.
The Letters of the Living, as the Bab named the inceptive Babi Unit of nineteen consisting of himself and eighteen early believers, was at the heart of the renewed dispensation. In his conception of the new religion, the Bab was influenced also by the story of Jesus and his disciples as narrated in newly accessible printed translations of the New Testament. In his religious scheme, the Bab constituted the Primal Point Nuqta-yi Ula of a scriptural universe in which each convert was considered a building block, a symbolic point, in the Bayan 's book, which was uttered not only in letters and words but in their human equivalents of the sacred text of the physical world.
At the same time the Bab's assumed epithet to be the Sublime Lord Rabb-i A'la was close to the Christian characterization of Jesus, Son of God and the Savior, whose account of life and sufferings was appreciated by the Bab. In the Bab's scripture-oriented worldview, the Europeans, whose increasing presence was felt in Iran around the middle of the nineteenth century, were recognized as the "letters of the Gospel. Indeed, the Bab, himself from the ancient province of Fars, expressed in his writings a nascent national awareness exemplified not only by his ban on Christian intrusion in the land of Bayan but also by the use of Persian along with Arabic as a scriptural language.
His fierce criticism of conventional Islamic madrasa scholarship of his time, which was exclusively in Arabic, brought him to the point of banning the study of jurisprudence and scholastic philosophy and calling for burning all books that were contrary to the essence of the Bayan. He also adopted a new solar calendar in part based on ancient Iranian time reckoning in place of the Islamic lunar calendar and marked the date of his own manifestation as a beginning of a novel badi' era.
Following the arrest and incarceration of [page ] the founder of the movement and experiencing a number of humiliating episodes, the initial Jesus-like program for peaceful propagation was surpassed by the ever-present Husain paradigm of martyrdom in the battlefield. In this shift of paradigms the Bab saw his own fate as identical to the fate of the Lord of the Age as foretold by prophecies.

The sociogeographic composition of the Babi movement revealed national characteristics consonant with the Babi beliefs but in contrast to the compartmentalized structure of the society in which it appeared. Babism was the first movement in the modern Middle East that brought together a wider spectrum of converts from different walks of life and throughout a vast geographical span.
In the siege of Tabarsi in Mazandaran province in northern Iran, when in the Babis put up a stiff and bloody resistance against the government forces and their clerical allies, there came together converts from all over Iran, as well as Afghanistan and Iraq, of different social classes with diverse occupational backgrounds, education, and religious leanings. The Tabarsi resistance, like a number of other Babi armed struggles around the same time in Zanjan and Nayriz, embodied the anticlerical and antistate sentiments that were combined at times with indigenous communistic proclivities, giving expression to urban and rural grievances and ethnic strife Amanat , , In addition to lower ranks of the clergy and members of the bazaar guilds, a number of women also joined the movement.
An ardent Shaykhi scholar and orator from a well-known clerical family, she probably was the first Muslim woman in modern times to remove her facial veil in public, reportedly while preaching to a male audience.
A mystic and a poet, she highlighted the independent nature of the Babi dispensation in the gathering of Badasht in She held that the ongoing age of resurrection has put an end to the Islamic Shari'a and that during the interregnum between the old religion and the birth of the new one, such obligations as prayers and fasting and even institutions of marriage and divorce are abolished. Her very act of removing her facial veil was as much an expression of protest against women's inferior position as it was a symbolic declaration of the age of apocalypse and [page ] the occurrence of the sedition fitna.
She declared that the age of "delivering the word" has only brought abuse and persecution and that the only option open to the Babis was resort to the sword Amanat , , and sources cited there. By , as the Babi armed resistance culminated, the government's attitude hardened toward the Babis. The new premier, Mirza Taqi Khan Amir Kabir, who viewed the movement as a revolutionary threat to the very survival of the state, with much trouble managed to suppress the revolts, and subsequently, in , he executed the Bab in Tabriz.
