US-American philosopher Henry David Thoreau on civil disobedience


At first, Thoreau agreed with Emerson’s teaching that social reform begins with the individual. In 1845, he built a hut at Walden Pond on property owned by Emerson. For the next few years, Thoreau lived simply off the land, meditated, and wrote about nature.

In July 1846, the sheriff arrested and jailed Thoreau for his tax delinquency. Someone, probably a relative, anonymously paid Thoreau’s taxes after he had spent one night in jail. This incident prompted Thoreau to write his famous essay, “Civil Disobedience” (originally published in 1849 as “Resistance to Civil Government”).

Thoreau declared that if the government required people to participate in injustice by obeying “unjust laws,” then people should “break the laws” even if they ended up in prison. “Under a government which imprisons any unjustly,” he asserted, “the true place for a just man is also a prison.”

yeah... I went for a walk to st Lenoards, with wasn't raining nor was it too windy but the clouds had started to set in during sunset.

the [formations] were not that interesting though... =\

I did initially go to [that area] again and was planning to try and catch [that scene] again... but I decided to give up...

but I'm working on an alternative! hopefully it wont take too long (\^u^*)

LHCb discovers matter-antimatter asymmetry in charm quarks | symmetry magazine

Scientists on the LHCb experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN have discovered a new way in which matter and antimatter behave differently.

With 99.9999 percent statistical certainty, LHCb scientists have observed a difference between the decays of matter and antimatter particles containing charm quarks. This discovery opens up a new realm to study the differences between matter and antimatter and could help explain why we live in a matter-dominated universe.

Went back to that yauchting area near the stadium, but the #clouds today were not as vibrant...

I did catch another nice sunset with reflection on the water... I'll put that up on sale in a moment...

The #Sunset From Sir Leonard Wright Lookout Point


As promised, here is the (best) #picture I've taken on that really #windy #walk to the end of St Kilda #beach...

I had to wait around for about 2 hours, it got kinda cold and it was really late when I got back to my room... but the result is totally worth it! (♥u♥)

Went on a #walk to Ravensbourne, and I was too late to #capture this #scene.

The sun had dipped below the horizion and the colors had begun to #dim... ='(

I'll have to revisit this area, maybe multiple times... If it's good enough, I might put it [on sale]

Missing the point that the #nature -hostile #trump regime already makes it OK to kill wolves that don't threaten anyone? And calls humans "animals" when they're 'brown'?
 
Saying "something is difficult" hence I want a #patent even when such #patents pertain to #nature and life itself

Tanzanite


$27,500.00
Miniature, 4.1 x 2.6 x 1.6 cm
Block 4, Merelani Mines, Merelani Hills, Arusha, Tanzania
Tanzanite is briefly common on the market in crystals - but do not expect that to last forever, from this one-source deposit. And, not in this quality - the crystal is literally a gem, stunningly clean and transparent with only a few veils within, incredible luster and color, and a razor sharp and natural termination. At 32 grams, this is hardly the largest crystal, but for a miniature size and for something PERFECT from nature, it would be hard to find better. This is simply one of the finest in its size class I have seen in over 20 years of looking. It has a life to it, and a sparkle, that does not require backlighting as do most. The best modern specimens for color, luster, and sheer gemminess in crysatlline form, all seem to

the nature of man(kind) - back to feudalism middle ages

Image/photo

a pretty big deal of time philosopher’s minds – and i am no exceptions – circle around the problem of: what is man? what is the natural nature of man?

is mankind really as fucked up as it seems?

or is it just what capitalism (the operating system of society in 99% of the world) made it?

almost always rewarding dark traits and thus brings about the worst in people?

you can always say: even a fucked up system is better than the stone age.

Cochevis huppé/ Crested Lark

Cochevis huppé/ Crested Lark

Cette espèce est menacée par la disparition des méthodes traditionnelles de culture et l’utilisation intensive des traitements chimiques dans de nombreuses régions françaises. En région méditerranéenne, il faut ajouter à cela l’arrachage des vignes et le reboisement (naturel ou anthropique) qui ont du contribué à cette régression.
