Light, Dark, Eyes…


A study, published in the journal Nature, showed that mice spending pregnancy in complete darkness had babies with altered eye development.

It indicated tiny quantities of light were needed to control blood vessel growth in the eye. The researchers showed that the retina development requires light that is going through the body during pregnancy.

From darkness we come, into the light.

And yet we are afraid of shadows.

Light could be that which makes us see the… light, but isn’t it true that we would name “light” anything we saw?

Close your eyes. Could that be Light?

In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!

    the picture in your post is’s interesting to see how people react to such pictures..
    many react to the picture as a product and deal with technics of photo
    others congratulate the photoraph for such a great performance although he has no great merite in the beauty of the view.
    ohers taste the beauty sensually like chocolate..
    i can’t imagine such a being( the forest,nature…)without the light wich is an effect of the sun that is hidden by its luminosity and brightness..
    the sun is here, we don’t see it: we see and experience its effects, rays are not the sun, corona is not the sun..
    by analogy: all things that exist are effects of Allah The Creator.. all thins are SIGNS of ALLah, that He demands Us to look at and meditate..
    but lot of people see things and don’t see signs..

    “from darkness we come,into the light”
    allah says in sourat NOOR( the light):(35) Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The example of His light is like a niche within which is a lamp, the lamp is within glass, the glass as if it were a pearly [white] star lit from [the oil of] a blessed olive tree, neither of the nor of the west, whose oil would almost glow even if untouched by fire. Light upon light. Allah guides to His light whom He wills. And Allah presents examples for the people, and Allah is Knowing of all things .
    i would say:”Close your eyes…and open your bassira ( you heart eye)”
