Feb. 6 - Breath and Cosmos‏

Dear Friends,

A blast from the past...Paste the link if you don't receive the images/can't proceed to part 2.

Be Well.


Breath and Cosmos


The breath. So inconspicuous and so vital. We breathe all the time and hardly notice it. It is the first thing we do as soon are brought into this world. And it is what we can do least without.

Breathing seems a relatively simple physical activity. The action of the up and down movement of the diaphragm and the rib cage generate the in and out flow of air. Up and down and in and out. Oxygen rich air flows in and carbon-dioxide rich airflow’s out. The inversion of motion allows for the transformation to take place. This is what is obvious in the human system. When we look into the details we realise it is not that simple.

As we breathe in our lungs fill with the gasses that constitute our atmosphere. From this mixture we absorb the oxygen into our bloodstream which distributes it to every part of our body. In the cells this oxygen is used for the processes of metabolism. The chemical process that keeps us going is the reaction of organic molecules, and especially the carbon atoms in them, with this oxygen. This is the oxidation, which releases the energy that keeps us alive and warm. It is the fire whitin us. The burning that does not destroy, but creates fire. What we breathe out is carbon dioxide. Our respiration cycle can be outlined in the following diagram.

In the lungs the oxygen is exchanged for the carbon dioxide. Oxygen rich blood is transported to heart, which pumps it to all the cells of the body. There the chemical reaction takes place where the oxygen combines with the carbon of the organic compounds from our food. This combustion generates the energy and heat that we need for living.

Once again we encounter inversion and transformation. The bloodstream is pumped around the body in two cycles, to and from the lungs and to and from the cells. And two transformations take place, one in the lungs and one in the cells. The heart functions as the generator, sustaining the cycle.

This cycle within the human system is in its turn one half of a larger cycle of inversion and transformation which takes place between the animals and the plants. The carbon dioxide that we breathe out is produced as result of the metabolistic burning inside the cell. This waist product becomes the basis of the process that takes place at the opposite end of the cycle. When the green chlorophyll in the cells of plants catches the energy particles of light, carbon dioxide and water are synthesised into organic compounds. This is called photosynthesis. Here the waist product is oxygen.

As we breathe in and out we are enabling our life processes to take place, transforming oxygen and food into energy and heat. And when the plant breathes it transforms carbon dioxide and water with the help of energy into oxygen and organic compounds. The organic substances produced by the plants become our food. Which is in its turn used in the combustion process which takes place in our cells. And what is produced as our waist is in its return the food used by plants. These two interwoven cycles have turned our planet into a blue gem, which travels in the cosmic ocean of space.

The process is known as the carbon cycle. It involves several successive phases of inversion and transformation. Together the two cycles of breath give us life. The most precious and most mysterious phenomenon of the universe. It has taken billions of years to evolve, and it has eventually led to the emergency of consciousness in us, humans. A diagram of these two processes interaction looks like this.

How to Digitally Record/Video a UFO sighting:

Como registar digitalmente ou gravar um vídeo de um avistamento de um UFO:

Stabilize the camera on a tripod. If there is no tripod, then set it on top of a stable, flat surface. If that is not possible lean against a wall to stabilize your body and prevent the camera from filming in a shaky, unsteady manner.

Estabilize a camera com um tripé. Se não tiver um tripé, então coloque-a em cima de uma superfície estável. Se não for possível, então encoste-se a uma parede para estabilizar o corpo e evitar que a camera registe de maneira tremida e instável.

Provide visual reference points for comparison. This includes the horizon, treetops, lampposts, houses, and geographical landmarks (i.e., Horsetooth Reservoir, Mt. Adams, etc.) Provide this in the video whenever is appropriate and doesn’t detract from what your focus is, the UFO.

Forneça pontos visuais de referência para comparação. Isso inclui o horizonte, cimo das árvores, postes de iluminação, pontos de referência geográficos (como o Reservatório de Horsetooth, Mone Adams, etc) Forneça esses pontos no vídeo sempre que for apropriado e não se distraia do que é o seu foco, o UFO/a Nave.

Narrate your videotape. Provide details of the date, time, location, and direction (N,S,E,W) you are looking in. Provide your observations on the weather, including approximate temperature, windspeed, any visible cloud cover or noticeable weather anomalies or events. Narrate on the shape, size, color, movements, approximate altitude of the UFO, etc and what it appears to be doing. Also include any unusual physical, psychological or emotional sensations you might have. Narrate any visual reference points on camera so they correlate with what the viewer will see, and thereby will be better able to understand.

Faça a narração do vídeo. Forneça pormenores sobre a data, hora, local e direcção (Norte, Sul, Este, Oeste) que está a observar. Faça observações sobre as condições atmosféricas, incluindo a temperatura aproximada, velocidade do vento, quantidade de nuvens, anomalias ou acontecimentos meteorológicos evidentes. Descreva a forma, o tamanho, a cor, os movimentos, a altitude aproximada onde se encontra o UFO/nave, etc e o que aparenta estar a fazer. Inclua também quaisquer aspectos pouco habituais de sensações físicas, psicológicas ou emocionais que possa ter. Faça a narração de todos os pontos de referência visual que o espectador irá ver e que, deste modo, será capaz de compreender melhor.

Be persistent and consistent. Return to the scene to videotape and record at this same location. If you have been successful once, the UFO sightings may be occurring in this region regularly, perhaps for specific reasons unknown, and you may be successful again. You may also wish to return to the same location at a different time of day (daylight hours) for better orientation and reference. Film just a minute or two under “normal” circumstances for comparison. Write down what you remember immediately after. As soon as you are done recording the experience/event, immediately write down your impressions, memories, thoughts, emotions, etc. so it is on the record in writing. If there were other witnesses, have them independently record their own impressions, thoughts, etc. Include in this exercise any drawings, sketches, or diagrams. Make sure you date and sign your documentation.

Seja persistente e não contraditório. Volte ao local da cena e registe o mesmo local. Se foi bem sucedido uma vez, pode ser que nessa região ocorram avistamentos de UFOs/naves com regularidade, talvez por razões específicas desconhecidas, e talvez possa ser novamente bem sucedido. Pode também desejar voltar ao mesmo lugar a horas diferentes do dia (durante as horas de luz)para ter uma orientação e referência melhor. Filme apenas um ,inuto ou dois em circunstâncias “normais” para ter um termo de comparação. Escreva tudo o que viu imediatamente após o acontecimento. Logo após ter feito o registo da experiência/acontecimento, escreva imediatamente as impressões, memórias, pensamentos, emoções, etc para que fiquem registadas por escrito. Se houver outras testemunhas, peça-lhes para registar independentemente as suas próprias impressões, pensamentos, etc. Inclua quaisquer desenhos, esbolos, diagramas. Certifique-se que data e assina o seu documento/testemunho.

Always be prepared. Have a digital camera or better yet a video camera with you, charged and ready to go, at all times. Make sure you know how to use your camera (and your cell phone video/photo camera) quickly and properly. These events can occur suddenly, unexpectedly, and often quite randomly, so you will need to be prepared.

Esteja sempre preparado, Tenha sempre uma camera digital, melhor ainda, uma camera vídeo consigo, carregada e pronta a usar sempre que necessário. Certifique-se que sabe como lidar com a sua camera (ou com o seu celular/camera fotográfica) rápida e adequadamente. Esses acontecimentos podem acontecer súbita e inesperadamente e, por vezes, acidentalmente, por isso, necessita estar preparado.

Look up. Be prepared. Report. Share.

Olhe para cima, Esteja preparado, Relate, Partilhe.
