A Dedication & Joint Celebration of

Sir Arthur C. CLARKE’s 90th Birthday

“To Unite: That is why we came.
To Divide: That is not our aim.”
- Mevlana Celaleddin RUMI
"When the East was desperately trying to acquire the technology of the West, the West was turning to the East in search of spiritual guidance."
- Arthur C. CLARKE, Profiles of The Future (1962)

Concept, Written, Designed and Produced by
Bircan ÜNVER

Organized by The Light Millennium
in collaboration with
Prof. Sultan CATTO, CUNY Graduate Center, The City University of New York

"Mevlana Celaleddin RUMI and Arthur C. CLARKE: Two Universal Men who have made it their lives’ landmark and touchstone to spread the Earth's past, present, and future universal values.

These two universal men who will light the way for all times have something in common: Mevlana Celaleddin RUMI (1207-1273) left this world on December 17, 1273, which He defined as "Seb'i Arus."* And Arthur C. CLARKE was born on December 16, 1917, a day before the 644th anniversary of RUMI's passing."
