    Rahu in 6th house of your horoscope chart

    Rahu in 6th house of your horoscope chart

    The planet Rahu (just like the planet Ketu), a shadow planet, exists only as a reference point, is very different from the other 7 planets. Rahu is the situation wherein Sun gets eclipsed. In other words, it happens when the Moon obstructs Sun’s vision on Earth. However, in terms of astrology, Rahu means a lot. It is a highly malefic planet, which stands for illusion, materialism and the things that obstruct the smooth way of life. When Rahu enters the 6th house, the natives may be very good at conflict management.

    Explore how our sense of taste and smellinteract with each other to determine how we perceive flavour

    The CLOUD was created to explore how our sense of taste and smell interact with each other to determine how we perceive flavour. The team observed that traditionally we only consume foods in two phases; solids and liquids. We pushed to engineer a way to break this constraint, and theorized what if we could enjoy our favourite dishes through another medium.

    Muse stood outside Hell. Clouded eyes stared up at the rotten bricks, barely held together by eroded cement, infested by ugly black insects that ate away at expanding mould.

    In 1997, the abnormally bright Hale - Bopp comet flared up a spectacular scenery of light in the night sky. On one extreme, its appearance frightened the astronomers whereas on the other, it brought with itself the most unanticipated misery to the families, a mass suicide tied with an extraterrestrial cosmic belief. It was a cult called ‘The Heavens’ Gate’ that had a firm faith that the Earth would be recycled (rejuvenated, wiped clean, born again) before the year 2027 and the only probability for the survival of their consciousness was to willfully leave their human bodies or as they called it, ‘vehicles’ at an appointed time.

    moonlight chaos

    A thousand years ago, there was a king whose kingdom spanned half a continent during a time of knights and valor. He ruled justly and fairly, and thus his kingdom prospered. The king had 10 begotten sons; Joshua, the 10th son, skinny and white, with blonde hair and blue eyes whose selflessness knew no bounds; Alexander the 9th son, a boy with great hope within him, as skinny as his brother but with deep tanned skin, with brown hair and eyes as green as the leaves of the trees; the 8th son, Kanin, whose hair was blood red, and with deep brown eyes: he had more muscle than his younger brothers, and within him he had a strong sense of justice and honor; Michael, the 7th son, whose hair and eyes were dark as night, and body was lean and wiry with the muscle of training and work, covered in scars from his exploits where he always sought out glory and fame; Vile,the 6th son, his hair white as the snow, with eyes the colour of clouds heavy with rain and his skin dark, upon whom fear held no power upon his heart nor mind; Talon, the 5th son, hair brown as the earth and eyes black as the night above it with white skin the color of the stars that hung there, whose skills in hunting were unlike any other; Joseph, the 4th son, with long dark hair that brushed his shoulders, with a handsome stare from underneath dark brows that nobody could resist, with a cleverness to him in his own right; Nicholas, the 3rd son, with a completely bald head, and hawkish eyes the color of a small yellow suns, he was the strongest out of all his brothers, he had a strong desire to protect his people; and finally, Elijah and Arthur, the twins, both loyal men with skills at the blade unmatched by any but each other.

    The  Story of Loren

    The Story of Loren

    In a time long before the earth took shape or form, divine gods of an unknown world descended from the heavens onto a desolate rock. Having drifted for eons, they grew weary and took a quick interest in the inhospitable wasteland. Finding it to their favor, they created life as forward-thinking and intelligent as they were. For a time, all was peaceful; the gods relished their children, and their children worshiped them unconditionally. As seasons passed, the divines taught them their ways of magic, metal bending, forms of art, and other higher sciences. Thus, their children's power grew as it did their buildings, machines, cities, and weapons of great height and strength. However, one such creation became beyond that of any other. He rivaled even his creators, and Bahadur was his name. Endowed with the greatest of gifts he was to be the shining example of perfection, the brightest star in a sky of the stars a creation that personified the divine’s brilliance. For a time, he was that which they intended, leading the people of the world with his magnificent feats of power the god’s creations reached ever higher heights. Until he himself was worshipped as a deity, held at pinnacle of civilizations, which the gods marveled in admiration at their creation and what they were capable to do in the beginning. The god’s admiration would not last long, however. Marveled as they were, they quickly grew concerned that they had taught their children too much, and so decided to hold a council. The verdict was unanimous---they would leave the earth and rule afar, in their kingdom.

    We live in a time of cosmic bifurcation, we live in a time of unprecedented existential threats to life on Earth, including climate change, deforestation, food insecurity, and wildlife numbers in free fall, human overpopulation. the society is in turmoil. There is more and more violence. There’s more and more conflict. We are acting as if we are unconnected to our own nature, to our environment, our own world and we produce high entropy and non-coherence . While the universe shows increasing complexity the human society shows disintegration. What dissolves? all the traditional systems of thought, metaphysical , theological, ideological, all the traditional identities that separated us. The question is: will we get lost in the dissolution or will we unite in a higher consciousness, the cosmic consciousness? We forgot that we are part of nature, and we need to come back to this realization and live accordingly, we are built into nature, and our well-being is linked to the health of nature and the evolution of the universe. We need a sense that we are part of a larger whole, and that this whole has coherence.

    “Take Us to Your Chief”: An Indigenization of Colonial Literature

    “Take Us to Your Chief”: An Indigenization of Colonial Literature

    When it came time to select a topic for this next essay, I was pleased to find that Indigenous literature was an option. It is seldom discussed in the debate on world literature, yet traditional storytelling, which includes Indigenous literature, is supposedly the oldest method of imparting knowledge, culture, and experience. I was especially curious to learn how the imagistic techniques and metaphorical power of Indigenous narration would operate as a commentary on contemporary genres. Having done so, I contend that Drew Hayden Taylor’s short story collection, Take Us to Your Chief: And Other Stories (hereafter abbreviated as Your Chief), challenges prevalent tropes in science fiction by indigenizing colonial literature. Taylor’s future-oriented reinterpretation of humankind through the Indigenous lens reminds readers of the postcolonial traumas Indigenous peoples in Canada and worldwide still endure. Your Chief also strives to empower Indigenous communities with its forward-looking motifs.

    The Upcoming Space Missions Around The Lagrange Points

    The Upcoming Space Missions Around The Lagrange Points

    Any system of two massive, self-gravitating, and co-orbiting objects such as the Earth-Sun system or Earth-Moon system, produces five points of stability. Here the gravitational pull of both the objects balances each other and creates a small area that serves as a parking space for satellites and spacecraft missions. For some of those positions, even orbital corrections or control thrusters are not required. As well as there is low fuel consumption upon staying around those positions. These points are known as the Lagrange points or libration points or just L points.

    My Review of "John Was Trying to Contact Aliens"

    John Was Trying to Contact Aliens is a very unexpected documentary. It is extremely short so I thought it wouldn't hurt to watch it. From the description of the film it seemed as though there was going to be some sort of contact with something from space. I'm kind of a sucker for conspiracy films. What I got out of the film was entirely different. It almost seems as though this is one of the films that everyone jokes around online when they say Netflix will green light any proposal you give to them.

    Global energy demand has grown significantly over the past several decades. When we analyze this trend in the context of climate change and its consequences, it’s clear that new solutions, preferably those including renewable energy alternatives, have to be found. Scientists from all over the world are conducting research related to finding new sources of energy and the ways in which such energy can be exploited. While we are all familiar with solar and wind power, for instance, there are other sources of energy yet to be fully explored.
