Jetzt soll sich das Wesen der Natur symbolisch ausdrücken; eine neue Welt der Symbole ist nöthig, einmal die ganze leibliche Symbolik, nicht nur die Symbolik des Mundes, des Gesichts, des Wortes, sondern die volle, alle Glieder rhythmisch bewegende Tanzgebärde. Sodann wachsen die anderen symbolischen Kräfte, die der Musik, in Rhythmik, Dynamik und Harmonie, plötzlich ungestüm. Um diese Gesammtentfesselung aller symbolischen Kräfte zu fassen, muss der Mensch bereits auf jener Höhe der Selbstentäusserung angelangt sein, die in jenen Kräften sich symbolisch aussprechen will: der dithyrambische Dionysusdiener wird somit nur von Seinesgleichen verstanden! /Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche, Die Geburt der Tragödie, http://gutenberg.org/cache/epub/7206/pg7206.htmlA mountainside cave now used as a Tibetan Buddhist sanctuary was home to prehistoric humans known as Denisovans for tens of millennia https://phys.org/news/2020-11-midnight-holy-tibetan-cave-window.htmlDE VIPASSANA, OF OOK WEL ANAPANASATI YOGA genoemd, wordt door velen beschouwd als meditatie is zijn meest pure vorm. het is de meditatietechniek waarvan wordt gezegd dat het boeddha tot verlichting heeft gebracht«there is one holy book, the sacred manuscript of nature, the only scripture which can enlighten the reader» /one of the ten sufi thoughts from "the way of illumination" by hazrat inayat khanhttps://inayatiorder.org/teachings/ten-sufi-thoughts/we found combination vaccines for treating diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis infectious diseases (DTP vaccine) to be significant sources of potential cross-reactive immunity to SARS-CoV-2 https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fimmu.2020.586984/fullIn any case, life on Earth has survived many geomagnetic reversals, and still, life thrives.

Some define the gap between these two primes to be the number of composites between them, so g = q - p - 1 (and the gap following the prime 2 has length 0). Others define it to be simply q - p (so the gap following the prime 2 has the length 1). On these pages we use the former definition https://primes.utm.edu/notes/GapsTable.htmlWhile the idea that dark matter existed before the Big Bang is not new, other theorists have not been able to come up with calculations that support the idea.

toss a ball up into the air, it slows down as it rises. if you shine a beam of light into the sky, the light doesn't slow down, but gravity does take away some of its energy. as a result, a beam of

en ze waren niet de enigen want uit de verte zagen zij een man en een vrouw naar hun schuilplaats komen rennen terwijl ze grote bossen wilgetenen hoog opgestapeld op hun rug in bedwang hielden. dat is vrij eenvoudig- zei de duivel: -wie het eerst huilt heeft verloren!- en met een wegwerpgebaar liet hij de man struikelen over een wortel van de taxus. de takkenbos viel over hem heen. hij stond op maar viel weer rollend over rondgestrooide wilgentenen en haalde zijn hand open aan zijn snoeimes. zijn vrouw wilde hem helpen maar omdat hij net weer viel had dat alleen maar tot gevolg dat ze hem in het gezicht schopte met haar klomp. de man kermde het uit maar er kwamen geen tranen uit zijn ogen. de duivel was niet blij en hij zon op een manier om de pijn nog wat te verergeren. hij zag de kraaien vluchten voor de regenbui en veranderde zichzelf in negen kraaien en viel de man aan. van alle kanten pikten en krabten de kraaien de man tot hij er razend van werd. hij probeerde de kraaien van zich af te slaan maar waar hij er eentje links van zich af sloeg vielen er rechts acht aan. toch huilde hij niet. uiteindelijk kreeg hij een kraai te pakken en stopte het beest in een juten zak die zijn vrouw hem had toegeworpen. toen verdwenen ook de andere kraaien één voor één in de zak. toen de man alle kraaien had knoopte hij de zak dicht en begon erop te ranselen en te timmeren dat het een lieve lust was! de duivel kermde het uit en smeekte om genade. de mensen schrokken hevig van die stem uit een zak waar ze alleen vogels hadden gestopt en de man liet de zak vallen en beiden renden hard weg. de duivel kroop uit de zak met een rood hoofd en betraande ogen. -nou,- zei god, -dat was niet erg overtuigend. -ik heb jou nog niks beters zien presteren!- zei de duivel terwijl hij zijn ogen uitveegde. toen bewoog god zijn rechterhand vlug heen en weer en liet zo een bliksemstraal op de vluchtende vrouw neerslaan zodat ze dood neer viel. de man keerde zich om en zeeg op zijn knieën naast het lijk van zijn vrouw en begon hartverscheurend te huilen. niet pijn maar de liefde geeft het meeste verdriet- zei god, terwijl hij triest voor zich uitkeek. de duivel stond er naast en keek zwijgend naar het tafereel van de man en de dode vrouw. god, je hebt gelijk.- zei hij, -je hebt de man niet geraakt toch lijdt hij nu het meest. -de mensen zijn gewend aan pijn want hun leven is pijn lijden. daarop maakte hij een bibberend gebaar met zijn linkerhand en de vrouw sloeg haar ogen op. de man nam haar in zijn armen en terwijl hij haar ondersteunde liepen ze langzaam weg. maar als ik het meest bang ben van pijn moet jij het meeste lijden als je niet geliefd wordt. -zo is het ook, zei god, -zonder de liefde ben ik nergenseen kleine plaats ten zuiden van Arch.--een gehucht werkelijk--met een kerk en eenige huizen, tenslotte vond ik den rentmeester, logerend bij zijne zuster. Ik vond hem in een deplorabele toestand. Geheel ontredderd was hij gevlucht voor mijn toorn. Hij vreesde 't allerergste, kennelijk. Ik sprak niets van het geen ik hem alles te verwijten had, doch vroeg hem zonder verdere omwegen naar datgene wat mij zo na aan het hart lag: de verblijfplaats van Mischa, zo hij dien kende. Hij keek mij daarop zo mogelijk nog verschrikter aan en zijn zuster begon heiligen aan roepend waar ik nog nooit van gehoord had en haar schort te verfrommelen en te bevochtigen met haar mondvocht en tranen van ogenschijnlijk zelfmedelijden. Ik liet mij door dit alles niet van de wijs brengen en drong aan. Hij vertelde dat hij haar gezien had op de weg naar het jachtslot van de Dzj.'s, op een gezadeld boerenpaard had zij hem aangekeken alsof hij de duivel zelve was--al moet ik er bij zeggen dat hij het zelf wat omslachtiger formuleerde maar hier kwam het wel op neer--en dat ze daarop ervandoor gestoven was om dergelijke argumentenThey walked in single file. The entrance to the path was like a sort of arch leading into a gloomy tunnel made by two great trees that leant together, too old and strangled with ivy and hung with lichen to bear more than a few blackened leaves. The path itself was narrow and wound in and out among the trunks. Soon the light at the gate was like a little bright hole far behind, and the quiet was so deep that their feet seemed to thump along while all the trees leaned over them and listened. As their eyes became used to the dimness they could see a little way to either side in a sort of darkened green glimmer. Occasionally a slender beam of sun that had the luck to slip in through some opening in the leaves far above, and still more luck in not being caught in the tangled boughs and matted twigs beneath, stabbed down thin and bright before them. But this was seldom, and it soon ceased altogether. ,THE HOBBIT OR THERE AND BACK AGAIN J.R.R. TOLKIEN CHAPTER VIII: FLIES AND SPIDERS ,https://archive.org/stream/TheHobbitByJRRTolkienEBOOKPANIEK IN DE DAUW Het was al lang geleden, zeker voor een dier als Sophie, dat Karel haar gepakt had. Ze bad daarop tot de lieve heer dat Karel een keer zijn regenscherm zou vergeten en haar zou nemen, in de gang. Het mocht niet baten. Niets hielp, ook het bidden niet. En het smeken had alleen een averechts effect. Sophie was radeloos maar ze besloot toch, op zekere dag, vandaag, het volgende te ondernemen. Als een soort van laatste afdwinging of eerste onthouding van het onontkoombare dat haar helder en klaar voor ogen stond als een snelstromend beekje in een diepen scheur tussen de woudreuzen die daarin helemaal alleen stonden want het waren beuken en haar middenrif deed kruimelen en haar hart jeuken zodat ze haar linkerarm tegen de borstkas klemde zo moest haar besluit haar verwarmen en doorbloeden. En dat deed het ook. Ze trok haar stoute schoenen aan. en haar stoute rokje en haar stoute truitje en paradeerde dronken van het vreemde spel dat zij speelde in de vroege ochtendlucht op het met nog dauwbevochtigde grasveld voor de flat waarin zij woonde want ze wist dat Karel elke ochtend uit het raam keek als hij de koffie door het apparaat liet pruttelen. Eeraleerst liep ze wat achteloos rond en leunde zwaar op haar tenen opdat der hakken niet zouden wegzakken tussen de pollen gras. Maar allengs beheerste ze dat zo goed dat zij kon schrijden, het bekken naar voren overhellend, haar linkerhand in de bocht van haar rug en haar kin omhoog, zo waadt zij aan, de nieuwe dag. Aurora! De koffie zal hem sterken, zijn knijpende maag zal versterkt worden dat door zijn gedachten aan haar, hij vergeeft zijn ochtendhumeur en ziet een nieuwe tijd aanbreken, daar, voortschrijdend over het veldje gaat zijn gemalin! Het koffiezetapparaat hapert en geeft een scheut bevrijdende reutels en borrelingen. Ze kijkt naar het balkon, waar, echter nog geen deur is opengegaan. Hij moet nu toch gaan komen kijken binnen gehoorsafstand, anders marcheert de dageraad van het grasveld af en staan blijven kan ze niet zonder haar gratie te verliezen die als de traagheid om haar heen hangt en haar met parfum- dauw omhult zolang ze beweegt. wie ben ik dat ik dit allemaal besef? waarom snapt die klootzak het niet? Er is geen tijd te verliezen. Zou Karel nu niet snappen wat er gaande moet zijn dan is haar gedrag voor altijd onverklaarbaar ingewikkeld en omstreden. Hij zou haar geestelijk mijden en doden met een schouderophaal als ze eens fietsten langs een berm met naamloze bloemetjes die zij nog nooit gezien zal hebben, en wolken die kloppen en het warme asfalt dat zij voelt onder haar wielen. hoeveel passen kan zij nog schrijden voor ze later nooit meer aan Karel kan zeggen dat hij wat fout doet? Beseft hij dat hij hier aan het weglopen is? En doorsjokt achter zijn gemiddelde dagin- deling aan en nooit meer naar morgens kan kijken zonder een kutklok te zien? Wat dan? Ze maakt de stappen korter en gooit haar hoofd van voor naar achter. steeds sneller, tot haar haren zich niet meer lijken te verplaatsen. ze pakt haar haren bij elkaar en draait ze in een knotje. Voor het raam staat nog steeds Karel. Hij kijkt wat bezorgd en schudt met zijn mok met koffie. 'Karel' staat erop. Hij glimlacht wat.They walked in single file. The entrance to the path was like a sort of arch leading into a gloomy tunnel made by two great trees that leant together, too old and strangled with ivy and hung with lichen to bear more than a few blackened leaves. The path itself was narrow and wound in and out among the trunks. Soon the light at the gate was like a little bright hole far behind, and the quiet was so deep that their feet seemed to thump along while all the trees leaned over them and listened. As their eyes became used to the dimness they could see a little way to either side in a sort of darkened green glimmer. Occasionally a slender beam of sun that had the luck to slip in through some opening in the leaves far above, and still more luck in not being caught in the tangled boughs and matted twigs beneath, stabbed down thin and bright before them. But this was seldom, and it soon ceased altogether. THE HOBBIT OR THERE AND BACK AGAIN J.R.R. TOLKIEN CHAPTER VIII: FLIES AND SPIDERS ,https://archive.org/stream/TheHobbitByJRRTolkienEBOOKlondon nomades : "the class of nomades with which i propose to deal makes some show of industry. these people attend fairs, markets, and hawk cheap ornaments or useful wares from door to door. at certain seasons this class 'works' regular wards, or sections of the city and suburbs. at other seasons its members migrate to the provinces, to engage in harvesting, hop-picking, or to attend fairs, where they figure as owners of 'puff and darts', 'spin 'em rounds', and other games. [...] "the accompanying photograph, taken on a piece of vacant land at battersea, represents a friendly group gathered around the caravan of william hampton, a man who enjoys the reputation among his fellows, of being 'a fair-spoken, honest gentleman'. nor has subsequent intercourse with the gentleman in question led me to suppose that his character has been unduly overrated. [...] "he honestly owned his restless love of a roving life, and his inability to settle in any fixed spot. he also held that the progress of education was one of the most dangerous symptoms of the times, and spoke in a tone of deep regret of the manner in which decent children were forced now-a-days to go to school. 'edication, sir! why what do i want with edication? edication to them what has it makes them wusser. they knows tricks what don't b'long to the nat'ral gent. that's my 'pinion. they knows a sight too much, they do! no offence, sir. there's good gents and kind 'arted scholards, no doubt. but when a man is bad, and god knows most of us aint wery good, it makes him wuss. any chaps of my acquaintance what knows how to write and count proper aint much to be trusted at a bargain.' [...] "the dealer in hawkers' wares in kent street, tells me that when in the country the wanderers 'live wonderful hard, almost starve, unless food comes cheap. their women carrying about baskets of cheap and tempting things, get along of the servants at gentry's houses, and come in for wonderful scraps. but most of them, when they get flush of money, have a regular go, and drink for weeks; then after that they are all for saving... they have suffered severely lately from colds, small pox, and other diseases, but in spite of bad times, they still continue buying cheap, selling dear, and gambling fiercely.'
