The Sky / Flying object Collection
"It does not matter where I am. The Sky is always mine. Windows, ideas, air, love, earth, all mine. Why does it matter if sometimes, the mushrooms of nostalgia grow?"
― Sohrab Sepehri
For a long time, Sky was a mysterious place For our ancestors. It was unreachable. It was where the gods existed. Where the haven was, and it was one of the resources for water. For instance, In the ancient land of Israel, the rain was a life-and-death concern. Rain meant flourishing crops, bringing food and life.
Also, the Sky was a tool to find time and location. Sealers looked to the Sky to find the direction of their path by tracking the stars. It was also for Undrestanid of time.
Some people are looking to Sky and stars to understand a deeper meaning of their life and sometimes claiming to predict specific events like Astrology. However, this approach of Sky comes from magical thinking, and it has an unscientific lens to the world.
Scientists have rejected Astrology because they have no critical ability and skill for defining the universe.
Astrology has not confirmed its effectiveness in controlled studies, has no scientific validity, regarded as pseudoscience.
When I was a child, I was always looking and trying to find shapes and figures in the clouds. I guess i was trying to find meaning in those shapes.
But before jumping into this topic Want to ask some question.
What is Sky? where is the Sky? How many Sky do we have?
When you are on the Earth, you look up to the Sky. You look at the Sky, and Sky is a combination of the atmosphere, Stars, and other planets.
When you are located on Earth, The Sky is blue. Because when Sunlight enters Earth's atmosphere, it is spread in all directions by all the gases and particles in the air. As a result, blue light scattered more than the other colors because it travels as shorter, smaller waves. That is why we see a blue sky most of the time. And of course, the Sky is blue when you think that Earth is the center of the world.
But imagine if you are in the moon and looking to the Sky. You see stars and Earth, and they are a part of the Sky now. In this case, ground(earth) became Sky, And Sky(Moon) is your ground, and you are standing on it.
But what is Sky? Is it based on or origin and location?
What color is Sky? Again it is based on your origin.
It is blue if you are on the Earth, but it is black if you are located in the moon or mars.
I want to ask another fundamental question. How many Sky do we have?
Before the invention of telescopes, people only can see and knew seven such "planets"—the sun and the moon, then Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn (for which our seven days named), and they thought that there were seven skies, seven havens.
According to NASA studies, Show Our Universe Has at Least 100 Billion Planets. So should we say we have 100 Billion skies or 100 Billion heavens?
Religions believe that their souls might go to Heaven when people die and the heavens are in the Sky (above).so the only way to go there is to be dead first. The Bible states that only those who accept Jesus as their savior. On the other hand, scientists and astronomers attend to the Sky and Landed in the Sky with their physical body and spirit and, more importantly, Alive, Not Dead. And they might be atheists and don't have any religious beliefs.
I think the Idea of Sky is very complex and abstract. This is because there are so many different approaches to this subject.
It depends on how much we know about the cosmos and universe and how we manifest our world.
