Soundings:2.1

Week 2

 

A living body is shaped by its context. Debris from a supernova in deep space tends to form a clump than remain by itself. Between them there are tidal forces at work. After acquiring mass these individual clumps are subject to gravity.

Think of imagination of life forms similar to gravity working for proto planets. Life form shall however lay emphasis on the basis of understanding its environment. Evolving on an island without predators, its size tends to be larger than otherwise.

 

  1. Day 1

 

A female lion tends to produce fewer offspring compared to fishes that would lay millions of eggs and this difference owes to understanding of life forms with their context.

Soundings:1.7

1.6

 

Life has its push and pull which our experience of living does not adequately address since we are finite beings, meaning that how we think is limited by nature of life forms. Truth of living and death consequently are limited by the limit of understanding.

 

1.7

 

Our imagination holds a centre of which we are conscious of and each species shall hold one that does not however show uniform results. Dogs make sense of their world by smell that differs from a bird of prey that hunts by sight. Fishes that once walked on land taking to marine living is the result of understanding the relative advantages taken on the basis of experience.

Living among other species of life forms does give us certain clues but truth of living is not necessarily same as truth of death.

1.2

Procreation of species by two individuals presupposes a want, a sense of incompleteness in either. Man and woman know truth of living, truth of which when applied to death shows how inadequate it is because no one has experienced and come back to tell us. Truth of experience.

1.3

Truth of living is inadequate as truth of non-being. Life forms live and die; but some life forms do not die in the sense we speak of humans. A tree lives long and in its fossilized state it still exists where it sprung from. It is however incomplete representation of the former.

Geologists have found that some of the larger upright fossil trees (found within Carboniferous coal-bearing strata) showing evidence of regeneration after being partially buried by sediments.

Living for a life form signifies its growth in stages or dissolution as part of a process we call as death. It cannot be true and false at the same time. Both must bear some relation to an Absolute- Truth.

Day 1

Ignorance is often compared to darkness that must be dispelled by light of knowledge. Upon careful examination it can be shown that it is not so. Darkness is a state of being which for a man implies truth that he holds is inadequate. It is same for the source of light, which may be artificial light. Under the light of moon how a landscape appears is not same as under the sunlight. Truth is light but what darkness arises or shadows a man makes are ignorance as arising in our intellect and in our actions. It is a matter of degrees.

A newly discovered object is the most-distant body ever observed in the solar system — and the first object ever found orbiting at more than 100 times the distance from Earth to the sun.
The discovery team nicknamed the object “Farout,” and its provisional designation from the International Astronomical Union is 2018 VG18. “Because 2018 VG18 is so distant, it orbits very slowly, likely taking more than 1,000 years to take one trip around the Sun.” one AU is the distance between Earth and the sun, which is about 93 million miles (150 million kilometers).
When we choose a scale to pinpoint objects in space like the sun or stars we take AU. Suppose we want to measure the smallest unit, where the space-time is zero where do I go? From my previous post on loop quantum gravity I suspect my thought must be as strange as what happens at the event horizon of a black hole. Certain ideas I can recall I have been carrying around me and a few I could put to rest having drawn logical conclusions from them. God’s role in my life for example. Certain ideas have taken a leap at times and it comes back in the face of certain ife experience I know it made my reasoning on better grounds. An idea though discarded when it bounces back to point out my flaw in reasoning what shall I say? Collective memory must be a kind of interface on which thoughts must make impact. It is more likely for a seafaring nation because of their past lead other nations as well. Thus was with the Age of exploration and in anything else. Collective memory belong to the category of invisible persuaders. I remember the case of a boy who astounded many locals by being able to recall events he surely had no way of living through. Such previous birth experience must account for collective memory.
White holes, wormholes and black holes are mysteries of life on which Science wrestles on premises and trying to work its way into one whole.

No refill for me

This round I must forgo; You say

Tarry. But what for?

When society is taking a severe beating and old moral values are thrown as rubbish, do we pretend we are untouched by what happens about us? Or do we burrow into the huddled masses and hope for a miracle? Ignorance is bliss but that cannot save us. In one man’s loss lay some one else gain. (Poor Hillary. Her loss is gain for the one who occupies the WH.) I did not mean of those at a cut above. Ordinary people like us  who achieved a certain comfortable standing in life advanced while unknown to us quite a few fell back. I can remember a few who started with me in primary school and those who did not make it. Do we have anything to do with it? Directly no. Yet the social forces that helped us did not help them. Some vulnerable school mates settled for whatever they could pick up. That is fact of life in which they were helpless as indifferent we were since we were occupied with our own progress in life.

Whenever we tend to worry about our safety and security we need to see some monsters are out there shaped by tragedies while we survived. In my own case my trust in God gives me certain assurance: whatever happens it can only touch my body or material circumstances. ‘A thousand shall fall at thy side, and  ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.” We need not tempt God using this as a guarantee. If it is God’s will let it be so. If a saint of God should perish he shall be ever with the Lord.” That is our strength. In whichever case we should be watchful we do not edge out others because they are weaker or less privileged than us.  Whether up or down we are all brothers at arms and we do not sell our souls for some privileges that do not define us, really.
