History of Auroville….

At its Annual Conference in 1964 and with Mirra Alfassa as its Executive President, the Sri Aurobindo Society in Pondicherry passed a resolution for the establishment of a city dedicated to the vision of Sri Aurobindo. Alfassa was the spiritual collaborator of Sri Aurobindo, who believed that “man is a transitional being”. Alfassa expected that this experimental “universal township” would contribute significantly to the “progress of humanity towards its splendid future by bringing together people of goodwill and aspiration for a better world”. Alfassa also believed that such a universal township will contribute decisively to the Indian renaissance.

Site

A site, approximately 20 square kilometres of barren wasteland, some 10 km north of Pondicherry and 5 km from the coast was chosen for the city.

Inauguration

The inauguration ceremony attended by delegates of 124 nations was held on Wednesday 28 February 1968. Handwritten in French by Mirra Alfassa (the Mother), its four-point charter set forth her vision of integral living:

  1. Auroville belongs to nobody in particular. Auroville belongs to humanity as a whole. But to live in Auroville, one must be the willing servitor of the Divine Consciousness.
  2. Auroville will be the place of an unending education, of constant progress, and a youth that never ages.
  3. Auroville wants to be the bridge between the past and the future. Taking advantage of all discoveries from without and from within, Auroville will boldly spring towards future realizations.

Sea monsters……

Leviathan ( Livyatan) is a creature with the form of a sea serpent from Jewish mythology. It is referenced in several books of the Hebrew Bible, including Psalms, the Book of Job, the Book of Isaiah, and the Book of Amos; it is also mentioned in the apocryphal Book of Enoch.

The Destruction of Leviathan by Gustave Doré (1865)

The Leviathan of the Book of Job is a reflection of the older Canaanite Lotan, a primeval monster defeated by the god Baal Hadad. Parallels to the role of Mesopotamian Tiamat defeated by Marduk have long been drawn in comparative mythology, as have been wider comparisons to dragon and world serpent narratives such as Indra slaying Vrtra or Thor slaying Jörmungandr. Leviathan also figures in the Hebrew Bible as a metaphor for a powerful enemy, notably Babylon . Some 19th-century scholars have pragmatically interpreted it as referring to large aquatic creatures, such as the crocodile. The word later came to be used as a term for “great whale“, as well as for sea monsters in general

Energy_____

Hello , after a long time. But imagination needs time to flow into your mind and thoughts.
We all know what is energy and how it helps us in our whole day. But we will talk about the flow of energy in our surrounding. Energy flows in environment in different forms such as sound, heat, etc. We take this energy from the environment in the form of food and nature took it back from us, and this cycle keeps on going. But did you ever feel that without eating anything you feel full of energy special the time when you feel nothing in your mind and heart , neither you feel happy nor sad, neither you feel love nor hatred. I mean the time when you are in full consciousness. It made me think that if there is a way we can absorb nature energy directly into our body. As meditation helps us in keeping our mind stable so it can also be a part of it , because there are many stories of such people who were able to meditate for years without eating anything. In India such people are known as Rishi or sadhu. I believe there is something beyond our knowledge which we are considering as an illusion but it might be real , as there are lot of things we still need to learn.

If you think different or same as me then please help me out to find the truth……….

Srinivasa Ramanujan…..

Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887-1920) was an Indian mathematician who made great and original contributions to many mathematical fields, including complex analysis, number theory, infinite series, and continued fractions. He was “discovered” by G. H. Hardy and J. E. Littlewood, two world-class mathematicians at Cambridge, and enjoyed an extremely fruitful period of collaboration with them from 1914 to 1919. Unfortunately, his mathematical career was curtailed by health problems; he returned to India and died when he was only 32 years old.

Hardy, who was a great mathematician in his own right, recognized Ramanujan’s genius from a series of letters that Ramanujan sent to mathematicians at Cambridge in 1913. Like much of his writing, the letters contained a dizzying array of unique and difficult results, stated without much explanation or proof. The contrast between Hardy, who was above all concerned with mathematical rigor and purity, and Ramanujan, whose writing was difficult to read and peppered with mistakes but bespoke an almost supernatural insight, produced a rich partnership.

Since his death, Ramanujan’s writings (many contained in his famous notebooks) have been studied extensively. Some of his conjectures and assertions have led to the creation of new fields of study. Some of his formulas are believed to be true but as yet unproven.

There are many existing biographies of Ramanujan. The Man Who Knew Infinity, by Robert Kanigel, is an accessible and well-researched historical account of his life.

Nikola Tesla and Tesla Tower…..

The tower went 187 feet up into the sky. The base was framed with wood, but the giant ball on top, 68 feet in diameter, was made of steel. In the ground below, there were said to be tunnels and an “iron root system” that went deep into earth. Nikola Tesla, the inventor and engineer who helped electrify America, believed the tower was the start of a system that could deliver electricity, without wires, to the whole world.

At the beginning of the 20th century, Tesla had become famous for his work on AC power. But he had other big ideas. At his laboratory in Colorado, he had conducted experiments with wireless transmission, trying to send electricity through the ground. His notes on this work are hard to draw conclusions from. But it seems that in at least one instance he had some success. At the very least, he came back east convinced that he could make this idea a reality, on a much larger scale.

After shopping his idea around to the some of the richest men in the world, Tesla secured backing—a solid $150,000—from J.P. Morgan. The investor was most interested in the idea of wireless communication: Guglielmo Marconi, an Italian inventor, had recently been demonstrating his system for wireless telegraphy, sending messages from ships back to land. But Tesla had bigger ideas.Wardenclyffe wireless station shown in 1904, and a portrait of Tesla, c. 1900. 

Construction began in 1901 in Long Island on what would become known as Wardenclyffe Tower. Tesla imagined that it would be the beginning of a network of towers, 30 at least, around the world. He believed that these towers would allow him to send electricity through the atmosphere, which anyone with the correct equipment could tap into. Electric power would be ubiquitous. He would make “the whole of this globe…quiver.”

This idea was never going to work: The scientific theories that underlay Tesla’s dream would later be pulled apart. Electricity can be transmitted through the air, but the amount of power needed to send any substantial amount makes this an extremely impractical system. But even to try it, Tesla needed more money, which Morgan was unwilling to provide. There were reports of sparks flying from the tower once or twice, but for the most part it remained a hulking metal orb of mysterious purpose.

After financing dried up, Tesla mortgaged the property and eventually, as his financial troubles grew deeper, he lost it altogether. In 1917, the new owner, trying to recoup some value, had the tower dynamited down and converted into scrap metal. After the first blast, the tower listed to the side and remained tilting towards the ground, a failed experiment, until the workers pulled it down.

Einstein’s scientific legacy……….

Einstein’s legacy in physics is significant. Here are some of the key scientific principles that he pioneered:

Theory of special relativity: Einstein showed that physical laws are identical for all observers, as long as they are not under acceleration. However, the speed of light in a vacuum is always the same, no matter at what speed the observer is travelling. This work led to his realisation that space and time are linked into what we now call space-time. So, an event seen by one observer may also be seen at a different time by another observer. 

Theory of general relativity: This was a reformulation of the law of gravity. In the 1600s, Newton formulated three laws of motion, among them outlining how gravity works between two bodies. The force between them depends on how massive each object is, and how far apart the objects are. Einstein determined that when thinking about space-time, a massive object causes a distortion in space-time (like putting a heavy ball on a trampoline). Gravity is exerted when other objects fall into the “well” created by the distortion in space-time, like a marble rolling towards the large ball. General relativity passed a recent major test in 2019 in an experiment involving a supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way.

Photoelectric effect: Einstein’s work in 1905 proposed that light should be thought of as a stream of particles (photons) instead of just a single wave, as was commonly thought at the time. His work helped decipher curious results scientists were previously unable to explain. 

Unified field theory: Einstein spent much of his later years trying to merge the fields of electromagnetism and gravity. He was unsuccessful, but may have been ahead of his time. Other physicists are still working on this problem.

What Was Galileo Famous For? …..

Galileo’s laws of motion, made from his measurements that all bodies accelerate at the same rate regardless of their mass or size, paved the way for the codification of classical mechanics by Isaac Newton. Galileo’s heliocentrism (with modifications by Kepler) soon became accepted scientific fact. His inventions, from compasses and balances to improved telescopes and microscopes, revolutionized astronomy and biology. Galilleo discovered craters and mountains on the moon, the phases of Venus, Jupiter’s moons and the stars of the Milky Way. His penchant for thoughtful and inventive experimentation pushed the scientific method toward its modern form.

In his conflict with the Church, Galileo was also largely vindicated. Enlightenment thinkers like Voltaire used tales of his trial (often in simplified and exaggerated form) to portray Galileo as a martyr for objectivity. Recent scholarship suggests Galileo’s actual trial and punishment were as much a matter of courtly intrigue and philosophical minutiae as of inherent tension between religion and science.

In 1744 Galileo’s “Dialogue” was removed from the Church’s list of banned books, and in the 20th century Popes Pius XII and John Paul II made official statements of regret for how the Church had treated Galileo

Teachers…….


It’s very common to say that teaches are god but very few can feel it. Teachers can see the ability of a student and try to make it better. They doesn’t get any profit for this but they do it for us , because they believe us they believe that one day our presence will make some difference in the society.
If I have to make a choice between God and my teachers then I will choose my teachers. There is a magic in there presence, it’s like someone is behind you how will encourage you after every failure. Everyone has a dream to become famous and want to give all possible happiness to their parents, but we forgot to mention that person who deserves to be mentioned our teachers. I also have one such dream, I want to became that much successful that when I will be sharing my experience and million of people will be listening me at that time I will take name of all my teachers and say that ‘ you all are not just teachers for me , you are god to me and all this success is just to prove you that your trust on me was absolutely correct and you will remain my god till my last breath’.
Thank you!!!

What’s wrong with the science…..

Once there was a time when some great people had decided to use science for the betterment of humans, they thought what they were doing will only increase the survival of our specie. But they were unable see it’s side-effects. But know we had realised our mistakes and trying hard to solve it , but we can’t deny the fact that we were late to understand our mistakes. But what’s the reason that we were using slow poison for ourselves , according to me the main reason was, we had divided science in different parts but this is not the problem the problem is that we study only one part of it and because of this we gain incomplete knowledge and because of this the person who is studying chemistry didn’t understand properly what will be the effect of the chemical on human body, the person who is studying physics will not able to understand the chemical he is using in the machine will undergo more reactions. All these parts are inter related with each other. To solve this people of different fields can come together and can work as a team but did it worked we are doing the same from past some years and what we get is a bucket from the ocean. The man who studied complete science can only understand what is what and what makes what.

I can’t see the future but I can try to make it bright for you and me

Darwin’s theory of evolution__


According to this theory of Darwin all the organisms present on the earth today are due to the evolution, and evolved from a single cell . He said after billions of years ,evolution turns cell into a fish and due to shortage of food they adapted themselves for land and slowly they developed legs and became reptiles after this evolution played its role again and turned reptiles into mammals slowly the mammals turned into monkey and then homosapiens. And most of the scientists believe this , but we can’t deny the fact that from last 3000 years the humans are not evolving them selves why do we need warm clothes in winter and why birds got wings not human. If you read Darwin’s theory it seems that evolution is in the hands of organisms only, when they want to walk they got legs , when they want to save themselves they got wings and when they want to eat leave of long trees they got long legs and neck Humans also tried to fly in the sky since there very childhood but we haven’t got wings. I am not saying that evolution is impossible , evolution is there but it is on a very small scale only. saying that a single cell had converted into a giant animal , couldn’t make any sense to me.
