would first like to say these paintings were amazing because it lasted through decades and still looked beautiful. These paintings were very well preserved and were actually bigger then I thought. The painting with the woman sitting down and holding a kithara is 73 1/2 x 73 1/2in high. The painting of the wedded couple in the middle of the two paintings is 69 x 76in high. Finally the painting on the right, of a woman holding a shield is 70 x 40 1/4in high. The shapes of these paintings are rectangular and the artist who painted these magnificent paintings used Fresco. There is actually some damage done to these paintings due to the conditions I saw them in. Even thought they lasted through ages there were many cracks and chips on the paintings. The paintings also have lost most of its original coloring because all the colors looked faded to me. Over all though the paintings were in good shape and were probably maintained when they arrived in Metropolitan Museum of Arts. When comparing the three paintings from the reception hall we see that its depicting some sort of celebration . In our case its depicting a dynastic marriage. On the left painting of the women who is seated playing the kithara is probably an important part of the court because she is wearing a diadem and is sitting on a chair. Kithara was very similar to lyre used in Greek culture and it was an instrument used in that time by the professional musicians. The girl who is standing behind her is probably from the ruling class also due to her age and her outfit. In the center wee see the married couple because the center stage usually depicted the most important. The male is depicted nude because in that age being nude and showing your body was heroic and was part of the Roman culture. The rulers wife is depicted wearing pensive, which was a traditional dress worn by the brides in that time period. The...

Hidden History: Humans and Reality

...History, as we currently "know" it, is a revised edition, revisionist reconfiguring of linear events to a pre-determined destination and thus is a pre-determined mind set for the largely unthinking mass consciousness as we observe it today. Upon closer scrutiny, when real thinking and inquiry is applied to this revisionist text, we must first discard all the usual signposts that we have been "taught" to view history through and within. One of these signposts that we take as "normal," but is really just another revisionist trick of the magicians and spin-doctors, is the linear nature of history and of time itself. Time is not linear, it is spherical and holographic. History, therefore, is not linear, and the revised editions are not only written forward towards a pre-determined destination, it is also written backwards, revised from the back end, starting from the pre-determined conclusion and being filled in accordingly all the way to the beginning. The real question we must then ask is why and how did the spin-doctors know the destination in the first place from which to spin their tale both forwards and backwards? The answer is quite simple, and when considered objectively and without the mind-set of the spin, is painfully obvious. The answer is simply that the destination was inherent in the inception. There was a known and specified constant that guided the so-called "great work of the ages" towards its goal from the beginning. The question then to be asked is what...

They live a technologically advanced life and create new grand ideas everyday. These aliens live on planet Saturn but act as normal earthlings while doing everyday things like investing in love and aspiring to be doctors, artists, and musicians.

Their big eyes are very beautiful; they are the color purple and are almond shaped. If someone were to stare into them for just too long they would have someone mesmerized by their beauty, almost as if they were in a trance. The men’s looks differ just a little bit from the women.

The seven planets ((in order; Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, and Saturn) were intangible gods; therefore, they were part of the World of Forms. Plato taught that when people acted on perfect ideas (i.e., built stuff), the outcome, in the material world, must be imperfect.

Aristotle taught of the Universe existing in two realms. The Terrestrial Realm consisted of all material objects. All material objects, or matter, were made of combinations of the four elements (earth, air, fire, and water). Matter was classified by common physical properties (density, hot vs. cold, wet vs. dry). Comets were thought to be atmospheric phenomena, and part of the Terrestrial Realm (changes in the tail of a comet can be observed). The Celestial Realm consisted of everything in the heavens – stars, planets, etc. – and the fifth element, the “luminiferous aether.” The fifth element, according to Aristotle, was a transparent, solid but flowing, mysterious substance......

Astronomy or Astrology

...Astronomy or Astrology? Have you ever finally just gave in to the temptation and read your horoscope in the newspaper on Sunday morning? Sure, we all have. For most of us, itís a curiosity, an amusement to see what they say our day will be like based on the sign of the zodiac that we were born under. Sometimes we forget that this little diversion is actually part of an ancient science called astrology that has had a powerful effect on many cultures dating back to centuries before Christ. That is not to say that astrology is a dead art today. It is easy to find astrology advocates in every town, advertising in the newspaper and on television trying to convince us that they can tell our fortune, our future and help cure our ills by exploring the mysteries of astrology. When you are a lover of astronomy, the confusion between astronomy and astrology by those who donít really understand the differences can get pretty aggravating. And in early civilizations, the two disciplines were not separate. Astrology was just the religious side of the science of astronomy. So what changed? The most significant shift that set in motion the separation of the two lines of thought began in the first century when Ptolemy wrote the very first book on astronomy called the Tetrabiblos. In it, he began to suggest that astronomy should be considered a separate science from astrology. It was quite a revolutionary book because it also was the first scientific document to suggest that...

...the solar system. Large amounts of dust and gases accumulated over many years to form the planet. Venus is thought to be the result of a large collision. This is due to the fact that Venus rotates differently than the other planets in our solar system. Venus is commonly referred to as Earth's "sister planet" because of their similarity in size as well as a similar gravitational force. Although Venus and Earth share some similarities, it has shown to be very different from Earth in many other aspects. It has the most dense atmosphere out of the four terrestrial planets. Venus consists of more than 96% carbon dioxide. Surface Geography: The surface shows evidence of extreme volcanism, and the sulfur in the atmosphere may mean that there have been some recent eruptions. Venus is covered by a thick atmosphere, creating a blazing environment with temperatures reaching high enough to melt lead. Geology: Much of Venus's surface appears to have been shaped by volcanic activity. Venus is home to about 167 large volcanoes. Some stretching over 100 km long. Venusian surface is estimated to be 300–600 million years old. Almost 2x longer than Earth's. Internal Structure The similarity in size and density between Venus and Earth may mean that they share a similar internal structure: a core, mantle, and crust. Like Earth, the Venus's core is at least partially liquid because the two planets have been cooling at about the same rate. The slightly smaller size of Venus may mean......

Humans and animals alike multiply at an alarming rate and with the arrivals of new people to this planet there is a need for aggressive expansion for houses, apartments and retail stores. With new expansion comes the need for new oil and gas refineries and nuclear power plant to support the land that will soon be developed. Human civilization has been consuming natural resources at an exponential rate and the threat that we will soon run out is on the back of our minds. With new developments will come new technology and the need to improve on what we currently have. Our planet can only offer us so much and there is still much to be discovered in outer space. There are hundreds of planets that have the ability to sustain life providing certain conditions are met. NASA or National Aeronautics and Space Administration have been in charge of the space program for many years. While they have released this power to the private sector and given those with the resources a chance to go where they have not offers a potential solution.

Measuring Earth with a Stick

...Measuring Earth with a Stick Have you ever heard of the Greek mathematician and astronomer Eratosthenes? His name is probably best known among astronomers. Why do they think so highly of him? Eratosthenes was born about 276 B.C.E. and received some of his education in Athens, Greece. He spent a good part of his life, however, in Alexandria, Egypt, which at that time was under Greek rule. In about 200 B.C.E., Eratosthenes set out to determine the dimensions of the earth by using a simple stick. “Impossible!” you may say. How did he do it? In the city of Syene (now called Aswan), Eratosthenes observed that at noon on the first day of summer, the sun was directly overhead. He knew this because there was no shadow cast when the sunlight reached the bottom wells. However, at noon on the same day in the city of Alexandria, which was located 5,000 stadia (stadia were Greek units of length. Through the exact value varied locally, one stadium is believed to have been 530 to 600 feet) to the north of Syene, a shadow could be observed. That gave Eratosthenes an idea. Eratosthenes set up a gnomon, a simple upright stick. When the sun was overhead at noon, he measured the angle of the shadow that the stick cast in Alexandria. He determined the angle to be 7.2 degrees from vertical. Now, Eratosthenes believed the earth to be spherical, and he knew that there are 360 degrees in a circle. So he divided 360 by the angle he had measured, 7.2. The result? His angle was......

How Tristan Steele Created the Earth

...How Tristan Steele Created Earth The Earth as we know it today, in its earliest existence, was a very small and insignificant mass; a package of everything needed to create. As it orbited around the sun, the centrifugal forces created by its rotation caused the Earth to grow and expand constantly. This mass’ only purpose, as it was instructed to do, was to orbit around the sun. It was not told how long to orbit, as Time did not exist yet; it was only told to orbit, and that’s what it did. Tristan Steele happened upon this object orbiting around the sun, and decided to use it to create a world. Tristan Steele, the Wanderer, was both man and god. He was privileged, yet equal. Tristan was quite enormous; so tall that he created distance. He had become to feel quite large, so he created Time to measure it. He then used his power to develop a plan. Within his plan was the ultimate way to create, through work. He was very lazy, so he created work, which was measured by Time. He worked through Time. As he found he needed something to express, he created emotion. He worked so hard and so long, that eventually even he needed a Time to Rest. So, he created day and night. Day and night were very different from many of his other creations, as they differentiated between Times so Tristan could keep track of when he would work and when he would Rest. While at Rest on the surface of his new found creations, the Earth grew around Tristan, conforming to his body, and conforming to his......

...Astronomy is a natural science that is the study of celestial objects (such as moons, planets, stars, nebulae, and galaxies), thephysics, chemistry, mathematics, and evolution of such objects, and phenomena that originate outside the atmosphere of Earth, including supernovae explosions, gamma ray bursts, and cosmic background radiation. A related but distinct subject, cosmology, is concerned with studying the universe as a whole.[1]Astronomy is one of the oldest sciences. Prehistoric cultures left behind astronomical artifacts such as the Egyptian monuments andNubian monuments, and early civilizations such as the Babylonians, Greeks, Chinese, Indians, Iranians and Maya performed methodical observations of the night sky. However, the invention of the telescope was required before astronomy was able to develop into a modern science. Historically, astronomy has included disciplines as diverse as astrometry, celestial navigation, observational astronomy, and the making of calendars, but professional astronomy is nowadays often considered to be synonymous with astrophysics.[2]During the 20th century, the field of professional astronomy split into observational and theoretical branches. Observational astronomy is focused on acquiring data from observations of astronomical objects, which is then analyzed using basic principles of physics. Theoretical astronomy is oriented toward the development of computer or analytical models to describe astronomical objects and phenomena. The two......

...have grown and advanced in technology, and with the knowledge that we have acquired through countless experiments. We learned more as we experimented through the centuries, mistakes are bound to be made along the way and some theories and “facts” of the world were ultimately found to be untrue. Scientist had to unlearn what they thought to be true and restart from the beginning. In the past people had to unlearn their old traditions of false “facts”. Like the belief of the earth being flat instead of round. This was eventually proven wrong, through observations, experiments, and finally adoption of the earth being round, and the “fact” that the world was flat was thrown away. There are plenty of other examples as well; Pluto not being a planet, the earth being the center of the universe, humans not being able to fly. These were all thought to be “facts” of our universe. Yet through experiments and through trials we eventually found ways to prove these “facts wrong. Either by showing proof, inventing new technology that allowed facts to be changed or through newly made theories. This quote has even more of an emphasis in today’s day and age as our knowledge is advancing at a greater rate than ever before. Hundreds of theories are being made every single day, some are being found to be true others to be untrue. Ultimately though we will not really be able to know if the theories are true or aren’t until technology and our knowledge have advanced to the state were we can......

...Imagine this scenario set in the future. We know that a decently large rogue planet will be crashing into Earth in a certain number of years and we cannot do anything to stop this from happening. However, we do have the ability to terraform a planet. If we could also move humanity to either Mars or Venus, which one should we go for and why? Hi Jessica! Interesting question. To start off, I will define what terraforming is for those who do not know what it means. Terraforming refers to the hypothetical process of modifying a planet or other heavenly body in order to make it habitable by humans. This outcome can be achieved by changing the atmosphere’s competition, the body’s temperature, the surface topography or the planet’s ecology. In order for terraforming to be successful and the planet to be able to sustain life, NASA has defined that such a body must have extended regions of liquid water, favourable living conditions and enough energy sources to sustain metabolism (). Mars is generally understood to be the planet that is closest to fulfilling these criteria because in many respects it is the most Earth-like planet in the Solar System(). It is generally accepted by scientists that Mars once had an Earth-like characteristic including a thicker atmosphere and abundant sources of water. These characteristics have diminished over the course of hundreds of millions of years due to carbon dioxide/carbonates reactions, a lack of magnetosphere and numerous asteroid impacts.......
