THE FLAT EARTH – THE GRAND ILLUSION IS THE FUNDAMENTAL BASIS FOR HUMAN EXISTENCE

THE FLAT EARTH – THE GRAND ILLUSION IS THE FUNDAMENTAL BASIS FOR HUMAN EXISTENCE

The Flat Earth – The Grand Illusion is the fundamental basis for human existence.

In my analysis, the term ‘belief’ or ‘disbelief’ must be defined in the context of knowing the Ultimate, Unchanging Reality.

I ask my readers to carefully interpret scientific information and scientific facts to gain Pure Knowledge and Perfect Wisdom that helps man to define his faith or belief in the Ultimate, Unchanging, Eternal Reality often called LORD God Creator.

The celestial object called planet Earth is not an everlasting reality of God’s creation. It is experiencing constant change since the time of its formation and is subject to eventual dissolution along with Sun and other members of our Solar Family.

I account for the reality of man’s mortal existence on the surface of a very fast spinning object called Earth on the following fundamental prerequisites:

1. Man must not have direct sensory experience of Earth’s real shape and real speed. In fact, man needs the experience of the flat disc all the days of his life.

2. The duration or lifetime of man’s mortal existence is determined by man’s sensory experience of the apparent motions of Sun and Moon caused by Earth’s Rotational Spin.

3. The major biological rhythm called Sun Rhythm, Circadian Rhythm, or Diurnal Rhythm that operates a myriad of man’s living functions is synchronized with alternating periods of light and darkness called Day and Night while in reality, the Sun is shining all the time ever since it was created.

The Flat Earth. The Grand Illusion is the Fundamental Basis for Human Existence.

I ask my readers to reflect on scientific facts and information with due diligence. Even if I fly in a plane during the entire period of my earthly existence, my human body would still refuse to live according to the reality of Earth’s Shape and Speed described by Science. In my view, man has no freedom to experience ‘unconditioned’ existence. Man’s existence is always conditioned. The Mortal Existence is conditioned by the Grand Illusion. Man can find hope from God’s promise of everlasting life granted by Belief which requires no validation by Science.

The Flat Earth movement: A society of disbelievers in scientific fact

The Flat Earth. The Grand Illusion is the Fundamental Basis for Human Existence.

© CBS News Scathing of science and spinners to conspiracies, Flat Earthers proudly hold onto their beliefs that man never walked on the moon, our planet is a disc surrounded by ice, and that nothing is true if they can’t see it for themselves.

If you picture Earth as a ball spinning through space. the folks who recently gathered at a park in Arcadia, California, are eager to argue: you’re wrong! Earth is actually “flatter than a pancake,” said Nathan Thompson, part of a movement of people who call themselves Flat Earthers.

They insist the Earth is, well, flat.

We’re living, these folks say, on a disk floating through space, with a tiny sun hovering just overhead. But what about the Earth’s curvature? “I don’t know. No one’s ever seen it,” said one man.

“The perimeter of Flat Earth is a wall of ice,” said Thompson.

“That’s what’s holding in the ocean?” asked correspondent Brook Silva-Braga.

“That’s what’s containing everything,” he said.

And what’s underneath? “Well, you know, we haven’t dug that deep,” said a Flat Earther named Rene.

Netta Hagler, who arranged the meet-up of the Flat Earthers, questioned the fact that Earth is spinning through space at 1,000 miles per hour. “But we can’t feel it. I don’t believe I’m spinning right now. No,” said Hagler.

Patricia Steere, who is one of what you might call the “stars” of today’s Flat Earth movement (which mostly orbits around YouTube), told Silva-Braga, “Probably most people who hear of it will laugh at it, think we’re idiots. But we’re not idiots; we’re intelligent people from all walks of life and all ages.”

Flat Earthers have brought levels onto planes (to prove they are flying level), and zoomed in on the moon and “found” clouds supposedly drifting behind it. “Moon is only a few miles up,” said one Flat Earth YouTuber. “We’ve been lied to on such a massive scale!”

Steere agreed to play a game of “20 Questions: Cosmic Edition” with Silva-Braga.

Photos of the Earth from space? “Completely and utterly false,” she said.

Is the sun 93 million miles away? “No, the sun is not as far away as we’ve been told, nor is the moon. They’re probably about the same size.”

Pictures of astronauts floating around on the space station? “Completely fake. Harnesses, wires.”

Did we really go to the moon? “No. We didn’t go to the moon,” said Steere. “And we don’t have a rover on Mars. And we didn’t do a fly-by of Pluto. We’ve never been to space. Period. End of.”

In short, Flat Earthers don’t believe much of anything unless they see it for themselves. They believe NASA is just part of a broad conspiracy.

According to Steere, “It’s a giant game of chess. We, all of us in humanity, are the pawns. Part of the whole Flat Earth thing is keeping us locked down, not knowledgeable about who we are, who we really are as people, and what we’re capable of.”

National security expert Tom Nichols, who teaches at the Harvard Extension School, takes a dim view of Flat Earth. He told Silva-Braga he thinks something new is happening: “People have really become obsessed with the idea that, if it’s not part of their direct experience, it can’t be true.

“People have lost faith in experts. We’ve developed a kind of reverse snobbery that says if you have a great deal of education, if you’re at a well-known institution, by definition you must be a liar!”

Nichols poured his expertise into a book about “The Death of Expertise” (Oxford University Press).

He said, “Oftentimes younger people will say, ‘Well, the internet is just a big library.’ That’s wrong; the internet is a big dumpster. There’s no guarantee that anything you find on it is true.”

“It’s more democratic; isn’t that good?” asked Silva-Braga.

“No. When it comes to knowledge, more democratic is not good, absolutely not. We don’t decide how fast things accelerate in a vacuum by voting on it.”

So, in this “Show-it-to-me” world, we traveled to the Southern California desert, to meet, for ourselves, the one man who is boldly going where no Flat Earther has gone before.

Meet Michael Hughes – “Mad Mike” to his fans. Limo driver, self-styled daredevil, and most recently, do-it-yourself Flat Earth explorer. “I am their best hope. I am the best hope to prove the Flat Earth,” he said.

“The Flat Earth thing is like everything else to me. I just want people to question everything. Question what your congressman is doing, your city council. Question what really happened during the Civil War. What happened during 9/11.”

And that rocket sitting outside his house? Mad Mike built it himself.

Silva-Braga asked, “How does one go about finding out how to build a rocket?”

“Trial and error,” said Hughes. “That’s a bunch of it, you know?”

“You don’t get a lot of second chances, though, in the rocket business.”

“No, you don’t! Especially at about 1,800 feet up.”

This past March, Mad Mike actually climbed into his steam-powered rocket and set off to see what he could see. And to the surprise of almost everyone, Hughes took flight and landed more or less intact.

The Flat Earth. The Grand Illusion is the Fundamental Basis for Human Existence.

© Provided by CBS Interactive Inc. “Mad Mike” Hughes launched himself into the heavens in a steam-powered rocket he built himself, to confirm his theory that the Earth is shaped like a Frisbee.

True, 1,800 feet is not nearly high enough to properly survey the planet. But Mad Mike now has a plan to go 62 miles up, to the edge of space, where he’ll be able to see (or not see) the curve of Earth.

A model hanging in his house shows how he hopes to strap himself to a contraption involving balloons and rockets and blast off. “The first 20 miles will be with a balloon,” he said. “And after that, my rocket will fire, pull me from the balloon, and then actually once the rocket quits firing, I will actually fly like Superman for, like, another 30 seconds with no power, just up into the atmosphere.”

And if he somehow pulls that off, Mad Mike says he’ll disprove centuries of science once and for all.

Or, not.

“I expect to see a flat disk up there,” he said. “I don’t have an agenda. If it’s a round Earth or a ball, I’m going to come down and say, ‘Hey guys, I’m bad. It’s a ball, OK?'”

And with that, we put the ball back in professor Nichols’ court.

“The world looks flat. I look out my window, I don’t see a curve,” said Silva-Braga.

Nichols replied, “Right, the world looks flat. And who are you to tell me that my perception is no better than anyone else’s? And I think that’s a really dangerous thing, because, you know, the Earth is round, and you’ll learn that the hard way if you try and fly an airplane!”

SWEETNESS OF SPRING SEASON – WELCOME TO SPRING ON MONDAY, MARCH 20, 2017. EVERY CHANGING PHENOMENON IN NATURE IS OPERATED BY UNCHANGING REALITY.

Every changing phenomenon in nature is operated by Unchanging Reality. Spring Season brings a change, and this change is possible for it is governed by Unchanging Reality. Indian tradition glorifies Spring Season  for it symbolizes LORD MADHAVA, Lord of Seasons.

SWEETNESS OF SPRING SEASON – LORD OF SEASONS – WELCOME TO SPRING. LORD MADHAVA WITH GODDESS MADHAVI: In the Divine Song called Bhagavad Gita, Chapter X, ‘The Infinite Glories of the Ultimate Truth’-‘VIBHUTI VISTARA YOGA’  describes the LORD God Creator’s Infinite Divine Attributes, in verse # 35, Lord Krishna describes Himself as The Lord of Spring Season – The Flowery Season: “Rtunam Kusumakara.”
SWEETNESS OF SPRING SEASON – LORD OF SEASONS – WELCOME TO SPRING. LORD KRISHNA AS MADHAVA SYMBOLIZES THE SEASON OF FLOWERS, SEASON OF JOY.

The word ‘Spring’ describes the move upward or forward from the ground, it denotes resilience or bounce, and it means to grow or develop or come into existence quickly. Among the Seasons, the Spring Season is the time during which plants begin to grow after lying dormant all Winter. In the North Temperate Zone, the Spring Season includes the months of March, April, and May, the period between the Vernal Equinox and the Summer Solstice.

SWEETNESS OF SPRING SEASON. SPRING SEASON USHERS ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGE THAT IS DIRECTLY EXPERIENCED BY MAN. BUT, MAN PREDICTS THIS REALITY OBSERVING SUN’S APPARENT MOTION WITHOUT ANY CONCERN FOR SUN’S REAL MOTION OR REVOLUTION AROUND MILKY WAY GALACTIC CENTER.

LORD MADHAVA – THE LORD OF SPRING SEASON:

SWEETNESS OF SPRING SEASON – WELCOME TO SPRING. In Indian tradition, Spring Season is called ‘BASANT’, ‘VASANT’,’KUSUMAKAR’ or ‘MADHAVAM’. A chief, alluring feature of this Season is the flowering of plants. Mangifera indica, MANGO plant, native of India bears flowers and promises to deliver its sweet, and delicious fruits.

The Spring Season is a time for rebirth, regeneration, renewal, and regrowth after a period of dormancy. Man derives a sense of joy and happiness when the plants start their growing process and quickly bear attractive flowers. It gives experience of ‘Sweetness’ which is called ‘Madhurya’ in Sanskrit language. It is manifestation of a creative process, or operation of a creative energy that makes human existence possible giving man the sensation associated with consuming nectar, honey, or sweet wine. In Indian tradition, this creative energy is personified as Goddess Madhavi, and Her consort is viewed as the Controller of the creative energy and is called Lord Madhava. Today, I would like to seek the Blessings of Lord Madhava and Goddess Madhavi to renew my creative energy that would guide me to express my thoughts using sweet words and to promote the well-being of all my readers and become a source of Happiness to all people who are in the pursuit of Happiness.

The museum in India that shrinks you

Story From Madras – Chennai, My Birthplace in India. First of its kind Click or Trick Art Gallery of India. “Selfie-Loving Chimp.”

The selfie-taking chimpanzee is a huge hit with the visitors.

India’s first Click Art Museum, in the southern city of Chennai, has been visited by more than 47,000 people since its opening in April. The BBC’s Geeta Pandey takes a peek into this world of wonders to find out why it is drawing in the crowds.
Delightful squeals welcome me as I step into this museum on the East Coast Road.
Once inside, I feel like Alice in Wonderland.
There is Adam stepping out of the frame to hand over an apple as Eve watches, Atlas is gifting away a massive diamond and Monalisa is pouring a steaming cup of coffee. You can take a selfie with a chimp and play with a dolphin. And before you leave, you can also collect your Oscar trophy.
But hang on, the journey is fraught with danger too – can you prevent your body from being cut into halves? Are you brave enough to fight the huge snake that’s slithered up right behind you? Can you fight the bull that’s charging towards you? And can you survive Bruce Lee’s lethal kick?
To contemplate my survival strategy, I sat down on the nearest chair. It was a bad idea – I got shrunk!

Engineer Loganathan P says he works under tremendous pressure and a visit to the museum helped him relax The museum has 24 artworks on display, which have been created using 3D paintings and optical illusion. They offer the viewer an opportunity to interact and become part of the scenery.
Tamil artist AP Shreethar, who has created all the exhibits, says he drew inspiration from similar click art galleries in Singapore, Malaysia, Phuket and Hong Kong and that it took him three and a half years to put together this museum.
“Art galleries in southern India are generally very boring. Not many people are interested in art and few visit an exhibition,” he told the BBC.

Story From Madras – Chennai, My Birth Place in India. Artist AP Shreethar opened India’s first 3D Click or Trick Art Gallery. “Drink of Life.”

Artist AP Shreethar said even he didn’t anticipate this kind of response The museum has had more than 47,000 visitors since it opened its doors on 14 April. Entry is ticketed at 150 rupees ($2.24; £1.68) for adults and 100 rupees for children – which is not cheap, but it has been no deterrent with hundreds of people visiting daily. At the weekends, Mr Shreethar says the museum draws up to 2,000 visitors in a day.
The paintings seem to be a hit with the children as well as adults.
Seven-year-old Sahasra Rushika and her four-year-old brother Atharva Raghav, who are visiting with their parents from Bangalore, are running around posing for pictures.
“The angel is the best, it’s my favourite, it can fly,” says Saharsa.

When I got shrunk Nearby, grown men and women are posing too, cellphones have been whipped out from pockets and purses, some are taking selfies while others are calling out to friends and colleagues to take their photos.
“I’m an engineer, we work under tremendous pressure. This is a surprise visit our office organised for us and we’re enjoying it immensely,” says Loganathan P who is visiting with his colleagues.
“This place is very nice, and I’m feeling very relaxed and happy. It’s taken me back to my childhood days,” he adds.

“They’re being sent around the world to friends and family now on Whats App,” he says.
His colleague Nirmala Mani, teases him that he is behaving like the selfie-taking chimp which she describes as “the most awesome work here”.
“It is very satisfying to see people enjoying themselves like this,” Mr Shreethar says.

Buoyed by the success of this project, now he plans to open 22 more museums, including in Delhi, Goa, Mumbai, San Francisco and Malta.
Click art, he says, is perfect for today’s generation, obsessed with photographs and selfies.

Story From Madras – Chennai, My Birthplace in India. First of its kind 3-D Click or Trick Art Gallery of India. “My First Oscar.”

Seven-year-old Sahasra Rushika collects her Oscar on her way out “Seven-eight years ago this wouldn’t have worked. But now everyone has a cellphone with a camera and that has made this very popular.”
Mr Shreethar says most visitors take 50 to 60 pictures at the museum and that their Facebook page has been tagged in nearly a million photographs.
“I knew the click art museum would be a hit, but even we are astonished by the interest,” he adds.

ALASKA
More than half of the coastline of the entire United States is in Alaska.



AMAZON

The Amazon rainforest produces more than 20% of World’s Oxygen supply.

The Amazon River pushes so much water into the Atlantic Ocean that, more than one hundred miles at sea off the mouth of the river, one can dip fresh water out of the ocean. The volume of water in the Amazon river is greater than the next eight largest rivers in the world combined and three times the flow of all rivers in the United States .
ANTARCTICA

Antarctica is the only land on our planet that is not owned by any country. Ninety percent of World’s Ice covers Antarctica. This Ice also represents seventy percent of all the fresh water in World. As strange as it sounds, Antarctica is essentially a Desert; average yearly total precipitation is about two inches. Although covered with Ice(all but 0.4% of it, Ice), Antarctica is the driest place on the planet, with an absolute humidity lower than that of Gobi Desert.

WHAT IS BEAUTY? Whole Beauty – Whole Aesthetics: Alexander Gottlieb Baumgarten(1714-1762), German philosopher coined the term ‘Aesthetics’ from the Greek word for Perception(aisthesis). It denotes a realm of concrete knowledge in which content is communicated in sensory form.

Aesthetics is a branch of philosophy dealing with the nature of art and the criteria of artistic judgment. Aesthetics involves the study or theory of beauty and of the psychological responses to it. Aesthetics has developed into a broad field of knowledge and inquiry. The term was coined by Alexander Gottlieb Baumgarten to denote a realm of concrete knowledge in which content is communicated in sensory form. Now the term is applied to the study of all the works of the fine arts, the useful arts(crafts) and natural phenomena(eg., landscapes, the human face and body) that have aesthetic value and generate an experience called aesthetic experience. Plato and Aristotle formulated conception of art as imitation of nature. Beauty inheres in the object itself and may be judged objectively. Hume identified beauty with that which pleases the observer. Baumgarten emphasized on importance of feeling. If art imitates nature, the artist must deliberately alter nature by adding elements of feeling to perceive reality. The artistic process involves the use of illusion to mirror the creative process of the world.

A STUDY IN AESTHETICS – THE BIRTH OF TRAGEDY OUT OF THE SPIRIT OF MUSIC:

In his first book, The Birth of Tragedy Out of the Spirit of Music(1872), German philosopher Nietzsche presented a theory of Greek mythology and of the foundations of art. He introduced his famous distinction or dichotomy between the Apollonian or rational element in human nature, and the Dionysian or passionate element of human nature as exemplified in the Greek gods Apollo and Dionysus. In Nietzsche’s view, man achieves a momentary harmony with the Primordial Mystery when the two principles of rational and passionate nature are blended either in art or in life. His book remains a classic in the history of Aesthetics to this day.

WholeDude - WholeDesigner - Whole Aesthetics:  Greek god Apollo is the god of all plastic energies, the deity of light, god of reason, and god of life and form giving force. Nietzsche describes Apollo as the reality that is ordered and differentiated by forms.

In art, Apollo is portrayed as perfection of Youth and Beauty. Nietzsche describes Apollo as the reality that is ordered and differentiated by forms.
WholeDude - WholeDesigner - Whole Aesthetics: Greek god Dionysus is the god of fertility, and passion. He taught mankind viticulture. He is capable of dreadful revenge upon those who deny his divinity. According to Nietzsche, Dionysus represents reality as disordered and undifferentiated by forms.

The Apollonian element represents measure, restraint, and harmony The Apollonian element is found in the dialogue which gives a concrete symbolism that balances the Dionysian element. The Apollonian spirit is able to give form to the abstract Dionysian. Nietzsche claims that the Dionysian element  is to be found in the music of the chorus. Under influence of wine or of narcotic draught, the Dionysian element makes everything subjective to vanish into complete self-forgetfulness.

He is seen recovering his wife Eurydice from Hades after her death. It describes the pain and suffering of human existence and the struggle to overcome it.

Nietzsche describes the inseparable ecstasy and suffering of human existence. He states that man’s ability to live creatively in optimistic harmony with the sufferings of life demand the use of both Apollonian and Dionysian elements. Plato reasons that it is only an aesthetic phenomenon that existence and world are eternally justified. However, Nietzsche claims that knowledge and rationality in themselves do nothing to justify existence and the world. In Nietzsche’s view, life finds meaning only through art, music and tragedy. Existence and world become meaningful not as objects of knowledge but as artistic experiences. Nietzsche includes the Buddhist or the Eastern philosophy of pain and suffering as an inescapable attribute of human existence and emphasizes a tragic longing for nothingness and absence of will. Nietzsche recommends to live a life in a human-dreamt world of illusions. He sees existence as an illusion of illusion. Nietzsche bemoaned the final destruction of Greek tragedy by Greek philosophical inquiry which sought a more logical connection between Nature and mankind. Euripides, Socrates and their disciples demanded a rational explanation of the Greek myths and caused the final destruction of Ancient Greece’s religion and culture.

WHOLE AESTHETICS – WHOLE EXISTENCE – WHOLE UNITY – WHOLE HARMONY:

WholeDude - WholeDesigner - Whole Aesthetics: I use the term 'Whole Aesthetics' to describe the 'Wholeness' of Human Existence that requires the harmony between Dependence and Freedom, the Unity between Spirit and Soul.
WHAT IS BEAUTY? Whole Beauty – Whole Aesthetics: Greek philosophical inquiry sought a more logical connection between nature and mankind. Euripides and Socrates demanded a rational explanation of Greek myths and caused the final destruction of Homeric pantheon. I use the term ‘Whole Aesthetics’ to describe the ‘Wholeness’ of Human Existence that requires the ‘Whole Harmony’ between Dependence and Freedom, the Whole Harmony between Illusion and Reality, the ‘Whole Unity’ between Spirit and Soul. At the School of Athens, artist Raphael uses the illusion of an artistic process to create a scene where Plato and Aristotle are debating their conflicting views about Human Nature and Human Existence.

Aesthetics involves the study of objects that have inherent aesthetic quality to generate an aesthetic experience in the mind of an observer who has capacity to interpret sensory information. An artist uses the artistic process to capture the creative process of the world by integrating illusion with reality. I describe the conflict in the nature of human existence is caused by the tension between the two basic elements called Dependence, and Freedom. Human Dependence upon an external source of energy and sustenance is made possible by the vital, animating principle called Soul. The Joy, the Happiness, the Blissful condition of Existence gives the man the desire for Freedom, the Freedom or Independence from Dependence that established the Existence. The pursuit of Freedom may make man to live dangerously with a spirit of recklessness. Finally, Death is inevitable as there is no escape from the nature of Dependent Existence. Man uses the power of Imagination to secure his Freedom from Death and Dependence. Man creates an Illusion of eternal Life in which he sees the Illusion of his Freedom. Spirit is the principle that governs man’s desire for Freedom, and Independence. It is with the principle of Spirit man is able to dream, imagine, and create an Illusion that gives him the relief or the escape from the reality of pain and suffering. I would like to use the term ‘Whole Aesthetics’ to describe integration of the principles of Soul and Spirit to bring ‘Whole Unity’ and ‘Whole Harmony’ between the conflicting elements of Dependence and Freedom by using an artistic process of combining Reality with Illusion. I can discern application of this artistic process in the works of Whole Artist or Whole Designer who makes man to live on the surface of a fast spinning object called planet Earth where the Power of Time churns every future instant into a past instant without ever giving man the chance to recognize experience of a present instant. Man can only recognize a present instant after it gets transformed into a past instant. The Reality of Human Existence is Experience of Illusion that lets man to recognize a past instant as a present instant.
