  13. 13. <ul><li>THE DISCOVERY OF THE SPHERICAL EARTH </li></ul>Isaiah 40:22 He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth , and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in.
  14. 14. Also known as “The Blue Marble” photo, it is a famous photograph of the earth taken on December 7, 1972 by Ron Evans, the crew of Apollo 17 spacecraft, on their route to the moon at a distance of about 29,000 km. It shows the Africa, Antarctica and Arabian Peninsula.
  15. 15. Early Development <ul><li>Pythagoras </li></ul><ul><li>Early Greek philosophers alluded to a spherical Earth, though with some ambiguity. This idea influenced Pythagoras (b. 570 BCE), who saw harmony in the universe and sought to explain it. He reasoned that Earth and the other planets must be spheres, since the most harmonious geometric solid form is a sphere . After the fifth century BCE, no Greek writer of repute thought the world was anything but round. </li></ul><ul><li>Herodotus </li></ul><ul><li>In The Histories , written 431 BCE - 425 BCE, Herodotus dismisses a report of the sun observed shining from the north. This arises when discussing the circumnavigation of Africa undertaken c. 615-595 BCE. ( The Histories , 4.43) His dismissive comment attests to a widespread ignorance of the ecliptic 's inverted declination in a southern hemisphere . </li></ul><ul><li>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spherical_Earth </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>Plato </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Plato (427 BCE - 347 BCE) travelled to southern Italy to study Pythagorean mathematics . When he returned to Athens and established his school, Plato also taught his students that Earth was a sphere. If man could soar high above the clouds, Earth would resemble &quot;one of those balls which have leather coverings in twelve pieces, and is decked with various colours, of which the colours used by painters on earth are in a manner samples.&quot; ( Phaedo , 110b) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Aristotle </li></ul><ul><ul><li>When a ship is at the horizon its lower part is invisible due to Earth's curvature. This was one of the first arguments favoring a round-Earth model. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Aristotle (384 BCE - 322 BCE) was Plato's prize student and &quot;the mind of the school.&quot; Aristotle observed &quot;there are stars seen in Egypt and [...] Cyprus which are not seen in the northerly regions.&quot; Since this could only happen on a curved surface, he too believed Earth was a sphere &quot;of no great size, for otherwise the effect of so slight a change of place would not be quickly apparent.&quot; ( De caelo , 298a2-10) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Aristotle provided physical and observational arguments supporting the idea of a spherical Earth: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Every portion of the Earth tends toward the center until by compression and convergence they form a sphere. ( De caelo , 297a9-21) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Travelers going south see southern constellations rise higher above the horizon; and </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The shadow of Earth on the Moon during a lunar eclipse is round. ( De caelo , 297b31-298a10) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The concepts of symmetry, equilibrium and cyclic repetition permeated Aristotle's work. In his Meteorology he divided the world into five climatic zones: two temperate areas separated by a torrid zone near the equator , and two cold inhospitable regions, &quot;one near our upper or northern pole and the other near the ... southern pole,&quot; both impenetrable and girdled with ice ( Meteorologica , 362a31-35). Although no humans could survive in the frigid zones, inhabitants in the southern temperate regions could exist. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spherical_Earth </li></ul>Early Development

  19. 19. 1 st POEM: ADVICE TO THE YOUNG By Miriam Waddington Be what you want to be. Never underestimate the value of hard work. Its success may not seem visible at the beginning but remain patient; wait a little more and you will see the satisfying shape of a job well-done.
  20. 21. 1 st POEM: ADVICE TO THE YOUNG By Miriam Waddington The effects of patience does not only give you character but also hones your skills in using body and mind. It elevates in you.
  21. 22. <ul><li>2 CORINTHIANS 6:4-6 </li></ul><ul><li>Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses; in beatings, imprisonments and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger; in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love; </li></ul>
  22. 23. <ul><li>4 </li></ul><ul><li>There is a morality </li></ul><ul><li>In bee-keeping </li></ul><ul><li>It teaches how </li></ul><ul><li>Not to be afraid </li></ul><ul><li>Of the bee swarm </li></ul><ul><li>It teaches how </li></ul><ul><li>Not to be afraid of </li></ul><ul><li>Finding new places </li></ul><ul><li>And building them </li></ul><ul><li>All over again. </li></ul>1 st POEM: ADVICE TO THE YOUNG By Miriam Waddington
  23. 24. <ul><li>Live life to its fullest. Make the most of your capabilities and break free from your fears. </li></ul><ul><li>Worry and fear are obstacles to the path of mind which one must learn to overcome. Break it. Tear it. And reach your destination. </li></ul>

  26. 27. <ul><li>The night I lost you someone pointed me towards the Five Stages of Grief. Go that way, they said, it’s easy, like learning to climb stairs after the amputation. And so I climbed. Denial was first. I sat down at breakfast carefully setting the table for two. I passed you the toast— you sat there. I passed you the paper—you hid behind it. </li></ul>2 nd POEM: THE FIVE STAGES OF GRIEF By Linda Pastan
  27. 28. <ul><li>Anger seemed more familiar. I burned the toast, snatched the paper and read the headlines myself. But they mentioned your departure, and so I moved on to Bargaining . What could I exchange for you? The silence after storms? My typing fingers? Before I could decide, Depression came puffing up, a poor relation its suitcase tied together with string. In the suitcase were bandages for the eyes and bottles of sleep. I slid all the way down the stairs feeling nothing. </li></ul>2 nd POEM: THE FIVE STAGES OF GRIEF By Linda Pastan
  28. 29. <ul><li>And all the time Hope flashed on and off in defective neon. Hope was a signpost pointing straight in the air. Hope was my uncle’s middle name, he died of it. After a year I am still climbing, though my feet slip on your stone face. The treeline has long since disappeared; green is a color I have forgotten. But now i see what I am climbing towards: Acceptance written in capital letters, a special headline: Acceptance , its name is in lights. </li></ul>2 nd POEM: THE FIVE STAGES OF GRIEF By Linda Pastan
  29. 30. <ul><li>I struggle on, waving and shouting. Below, my whole life spreads it surf, all the landscapes I’ve ever known or dreamed of. Below a fish jumps: the pulse in your neck. Acceptance . I finally reach it. But something is wrong. Grief is a circular staircase. I have lost you. </li></ul>2 nd POEM: THE FIVE STAGES OF GRIEF By Linda Pastan
  30. 31. <ul><li>The Stages of Grief : </li></ul><ul><li>1. Denial: Not accepting your situation as it is. Disbelief can be used as another term. If you are in denial, you are not being true to yourself. There is no way of getting over something without going through it. We must face it and not hide from it. We must be brave to accept the reality or else, we will not be able to move on. </li></ul>2 nd POEM: THE FIVE STAGES OF GRIEF By Linda Pastan
  31. 32. 2 nd POEM: THE FIVE STAGES OF GRIEF By Linda Pastan
  32. 33. <ul><li>The Stages of Grief : </li></ul><ul><li>2. Anger: The urge to fight back for what has been lost. Anger also blames others for things that they are not responsible for to let the pain out. Anger should not get the best of you or let it win control over your mind. It is a destructive factor that ruins people. Jealousy leads to anger as well; they are both poisonous. </li></ul>2 nd POEM: THE FIVE STAGES OF GRIEF By Linda Pastan
  33. 34. 2 nd POEM: THE FIVE STAGES OF GRIEF By Linda Pastan
  34. 35. <ul><li>The Stages of Grief : </li></ul><ul><li>3. Bargaining: Negotiating, begging or wishing for someone to stay/come back. It is also associated with praying to God before a loss takes place, thinking that doing so will change His will. </li></ul>2 nd POEM: THE FIVE STAGES OF GRIEF By Linda Pastan
  35. 36. 2 nd POEM: THE FIVE STAGES OF GRIEF By Linda Pastan
  36. 37. <ul><li>The Stages of Grief : </li></ul><ul><li>4. Depression: Strong emotions of sadness, frustration, hopelessness, mourning, self-pity and numbness. Depression can also be a cause of suicide for many people. Mourning once in a while can be considered healthy but letting it take away the melodies of our lives is the same as being dead. Loss, pain and failure are present in all the walks of life and we should learn how to rise whenever we fall. </li></ul>2 nd POEM: THE FIVE STAGES OF GRIEF By Linda Pastan
  37. 38. 2 nd POEM: THE FIVE STAGES OF GRIEF By Linda Pastan
  38. 39. <ul><li>The Stages of Grief : </li></ul><ul><li>5. Acceptance: Realization of the truth. It is one step closer to healing. Accepting things as they are will help you move on towards your life and forget the unpleasant things of your past. </li></ul>2 nd POEM: THE FIVE STAGES OF GRIEF By Linda Pastan
