Pyrite cubes in matrix from the Victory Mine near Navajun, Spain. At first glance some people think that these cubes are man-made, but the amazing thing is that they are completely natural! Pyrite from this location is famous for its beautiful shine and near-perfect cubic formation, and sculptural appearance.
“Hierarchies based on ambition, as they are envisaged by the Western world today, are profoundly artificial. Why should the profession of teacher or merchant be more desirable than that of the worker? It is a matter of nature, and the nature of each individual is determined from birth. Each man’s duty, success in the world, and spiritual destiny all depend on his realization of what he really is and on his fulfilling his social role. The idea that one type of occupation is in itself nobler or more elegant than another is a concept that can appear only in a society whose values are perverted, where every soldier wants to be an officer. Such a situation inevitably leads to inefficiency and to class war, in which the only social morality appears to be the appropriation of someone else’s place, without taking into any account individual aptitudes or the Creator’s intentions.” — Alain Daniélou, Virtue, Success, Pleasure, and Liberation: The Four Aims of Life in the Tradition of Ancient India
it's so nice and warm to see mark be more confident now! he was so natural on running man and also with the help of jinyoung eheh
^^ he does seem more confident! I think though, even when he’s quiet, he’s still “natural” though, because that’s one side of him :) but he’s definitely getting more confident and comfortable speaking and making jokes on camera! ^^ Maybe he feels comfortable with Haha and Jinyoung too, so he was able to relax more?
Took a walk on the nature trails by house with this little man. He was being so fussy today the only time he was calm was when we were outside. We both got to enjoy the fall weather and I collected some leaves and foliage decorate my altar.
Xylaria polymorpha, commonly known as Dead Man’s Fingers is a type of saprobic fungus that can be found growing in wooded areas. In the 1800s, a large cemetery was closed down due to church-goers believing the fungus was a pair of human hands, attempting to clamber out of a grave.
Yawns are so contagious, even
dogs can catch them. Biologists
say this happens due to a dog’s
ability to experience ‘emotional
contagion’, so if your dog catches
your yawn, it’s a sign that they’re
empathizing with you. Source
Your dog understands you more than
you may think. Recent studies found
that dogs understand both familiar
words and tone of voice, which they can
combine to correctly interpret what you
are saying. So if you’ve ever moaned
about getting out of bed for a morning
walk, your dog may still get excited, but
he knows you aren’t feeling it. Source
