Are you going to be a dog or a cow in the future? Does the soul transmigrate into the body of another person or some animal? What is the difference between transmigration and reincarnation? Is it the same as rebirth? Is karma the same as fate? These and a hundred similar questions are often put to me. A gross misunderstanding of about Buddhism exists today, especially in the notion of reincarnation.

This misunderstanding arises because people usually do not know-how to read the sutras or sacred writings. Herein lies our problem. People will say "If such is the case why not speak directly so that we will be able to come to an immediate grasp of the truth? " What Reincarnation is Not Reincarnation is not a simple physical birth of a person; for instance, John being reborn as a cat in the next life. Karma Karma is a Sanskrit word from the root "Kri" to do or to make and simply means "action.

Christian eschatology is a major branch of study within Christian theology. Eschatology, from two Greek words meaning last (ἔσχατος, last) and study (λογία, lit. discourse), is the study of 'end things', whether the end of an individual life, the end of the age, the end of the world and the nature of the Kingdom of God. Broadly speaking, Christian eschatology is the study of the destiny of humankind as it is revealed by the Bible, which is the primary source for all Christian eschatology studies.

History[edit] Eschatology is an ancient branch of study in Christian theology, informed by Biblical texts such as the Olivet discourse, The Sheep and the Goats, and other discourses of end times by Jesus, with the doctrine of the Second Coming first discussed by Paul of Tarsus[1] and Ignatius of Antioch (c. 35–107 AD), then given more consideration by the Christian apologist, Justin Martyr (c. 100–165).

This gargantuan yellow rabbit is both hated and loved by citizens of Sweden. Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman is the man behind this sculpture; he created it for the annual OpenArt biennale. He is also the man behind the great Flip-Flop Monkey, which was on display at the Pixelshow 2010 conference in Sao Paulo. The 50 ft high yellow rabbit cost $20,000 to build and is made entirely of wood, making it vulnerable to termites. Yes, this giant rabbit is real, and it's spectular!

Yesterday we took a look at the history of Facebook mobile and how the company has taken a browser-based approach since almost the beginning of its mobile Web development. Keep that in mind with the announcements that Facebook is reportedly ready to make next week concerning its HTML5-based Web apps platform, the so-called Project Spartan. Facebook's developer conference was enlightening, if you read between the lines. Facebook's CTO Bret Taylor said there, "would be no central repository" of Facebook mobile Web apps.

How To Permanently Delete Your Account on Popular Websites - Smashing Magazine. Advertisement We all have an increasing number of sites and online services we’re members of, and sometimes it all gets a little overwhelming.

Some require complicated, multi-step processes that can stretch over the course of days (or weeks). Others take less time, but still require multiple steps by the user. Below we’ll take a look at the account deletion processes of popular websites and services, and how easy or difficult they make it. Facebook Difficulty (on a scale of 1-5, 5 being hardest): 5 Deleting a Facebook account is a bit more complicated than many other services. Then you can use the form found here to request deletion.

Immortality in Taoist alchemy. Levels of achievements. First of all it is necessary to try to understand that the Chinese culture has it’s own representations, sometimes radically opposed to the concepts of other cultures. Taoism, and especially alchemy of immortality in Chinese traditions are well-known everywhere, however, I shall dare to say that they have not been perused at all. Especially it concerns the most ancient stratum of Taoism and so-called the doctrine of shenxian’s (the teaching of shengxian's (taoists, taoists saints)). It’s not surprising because it’s wide-spread even in China. So the achievement of immortality is not a desire to leave the memory about oneself to descendants and not a desire to live on earth forever (and physical immortality and longevity, although considered realistically achievable, but have never been the supreme goal of Taoism), it’s realization of the supreme freedom which lives in every man, although he usually doesn’t know about it.

Taoist alchemy is the Doctrine about finding THE UNITY. 1. 2. 3. Islam Guide: Life After Death. Muslims believe that the present life is a trial in preparation for the next realm of existence. When a Muslim dies, he or she is washed and wrapped in a clean, white cloth (usually by a family member) and buried after a special prayer, preferably the same day. Muslims consider this a final service that they can do for their relatives and an opportunity to remember that their own existence here on earth is brief. The question of whether there is life after death does not fall under the jurisdiction of science, as science is concerned only with classification and analysis of sense data. Moreover, man has been busy with scientific inquiries and research, in the modern sense of the term, only for the last few centuries, while he has been familiar with the concept of life after death since time immemorial. All the Prophets of God called their people to worship God and to believe in life after death.

You can make your own new kinegram animations if you are a skillful user of a computer drawing or painting application.

This explains the general principles of making kingegram animations, and then gives detailed instructions for users of Adobe Illustrator. Review: What is a Kinegram? A kinegram has two parts: (1) an underlying picture with a complicated striped pattern and (2) an overlay of alternating solid and clear stripes on a sheet of clear plastic. When the overlay is moved up and down in front of the picture, you will see the motion, such as wheels turning or circles expanding and contracting. The kinegrams found on toys use a "lenticular sheet" or "lenticular screen" instead of a striped overlay. This is a clear plastic sheet with parallel rounded ridges that act like lenses.

The ridges are aligned horizontally and the motion effect is produced by tilting the kinegram back and forth. Principles of Making Kinegram Animations Step 1: Decide what to animate.

I've had requests for some sort of expressions tutorial dating back a while now, so I figured, "Sure! I can explain expression drawing...and it'll be way better than all those tutorials out there that are nothing but charts of generic expressions. Yeah! Just give me a day or two to whip something up... " Um. Sometime a lot more than two days later, I have this messy behemoth and the realization that I haven't a clue how to teach expression drawing.

Anyway, I found all I could really do was try to explain ways to teach yourself...and then add some pictures. Library of Congress photos. Love Songs.

Orphée charmant les animaux Roelandt SAVERY © National Galery, London Orphée ('Oρφεύς) fils d'Oeagre, et de Calliope.

Oeagre ou Oeagros était fils d'Arès; il suivit Dionysos aux Indes et fut instruit des Mystères de Dionysos qu'il enseigna à son fils. Calliope "à la belle voix", était la Muse de l'Eloquence et de la Poésie Epique. Orphée fut le poète et le citharède le plus célèbre qui n'ait jamais vécu dans l'Antiquité; il fut le fondateur de l'orphisme. On le dit aussi le fils d'Apollon et de Calliope mais il est certain qu'il fut son élève. Orphée charmant les bêtes (1650) Paulus POTTER © Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam Dès son enfance il montra de grandes dispositions pour la poésie et et la musique qu' Apollon lui fit don d'une lyre à sept cordes qu'avait conçue Hermès dans son jeune âge.

Par sa musique, non seulement il attendrissait les bêtes féroces mais il charmait aussi les arbres et les rochers au point qu'ils se déplaçaient pour le suivre et l'écouter. Neon Trees - Animal.

Tossing a pebble into a pond creates ripples that travel from where the pebble landed to the edge of the pond. The ripples are also called waves. Another way to make waves is with a long rope. If you swing your arm up and down while holding the rope (as in Figure 2.1), you can see waves start from your hand and disappear off the end; moving the rope faster makes more waves.

Figure 2.1. Making Vertical Waves. Waves have three important properties: frequency, amplitude, and wavelength. Frequency This is the number of waves that happen over time. Figure 2.2. Amplitude This is the height of a wave. Figure 2.3. Wavelength This is the distance between the top of one wave to the top of the next. Figure 2.4. Experiment You can play with frequency and amplitude using your voice.
