Ghafla غفلة is forgetfulness, negligence, and it is a defining characteristic of the human being, insân إنسان, literally "the one who has forgotten". Humanity would have no free will if it was not granted forgetfulness along with it. But Ghafla is one word for forgetfulness that implies it has gone wrong; mankind is supposed to make its way towards remembrance, not sleep forever. "Collectively we are dying – we have forgotten our purpose, and a life-form that has forgotten its purpose cannot survive. Its fundamental reason for existence fades away."
