    Lightning over Colorado - Have you ever watched a lightning storm in awe? Join the crowd. Oddly, nobody knows exactly how lightning is produced. What is known is that charges slowly separate in some clouds causing rapid electrical discharges (lightning), but how electrical charges get separated in clouds remains a topic of much research.

    This is truly mind boggling. But before I "buy" into their ability to "bend" time and defying time and space.....in my humble layperson opinion, what we have here is an enhancement of what already exists, as in any technological advancement: "So Google’s top engineers found a way to trust time.Part of the trick is that they equipped Google’s data centers with a series of GPS receivers and atomic clocks. The GPS receivers, much like the one in your cell phone, grab the time from various satellites orbiting the globe, while the atomic clocks keep their own time. Then they shuttle their time readings to master servers in each data center. These masters constantly trade readings in an effort to settle on a common time." Looks like doing better with what we've got. Again, an amazing feat. But actually making changes in spacetime design....well, not yet anyway.

Isaac Newton said in 1676 (following up on the writings of Bernard of Chartres.in the 12th century): "If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants." What I would like to add is that all giants stand with their feet planted firmly on the ground of nature, our foundation for any means of development and growth. We limit our potential if we cut ourselves off from the learning that nature has to offer us. Thank you Dr. Ali for being an important teacher.

    In his Buzz, "Sound" Bubbles, @Ali Anani boggles the mind. A must read.

    "Recent findings claim that sound travels in bubbles and not in waves. https://www.cymascope.com/cyma_research/Veritas_cymatics.pdf
    This information revealed upon printing the invisible vibrations of sand on very pure water. The waves of sounds are spherical bubbles. Sound travels in bubbles and not in waves. If true, we have a huge task awaiting us to understand bubbles even more. No matter what the sound source is it travels in bubbles. Bubbles of sound are like soap bubbles if two bubbles hit each other we notice their curvature and each collision transferring voice vibrations to the nearest atom or molecule. I wonder if this "sounds" interesting even though it negates what we know about sound."

    #3 The most common causes of land subsidence are often the development of sinkholes in areas underlain by soluble carbonate rocks or ground collapse above abandoned mines. This was the main concern when I was an underwriter. We had to do a lot of research using sinkhole data maps, etc. before we would consider providing coverage for a structure. However, and especially after seeing the video, there appears to be more and perhaps unknown causes for sinkholes. IMO the buffer layer would be 1) don’t build on areas susceptible to land subsidence 2) purchase insurance to cover the peril. But, it’s obvious this won’t work in all situations.
    I believe there are correlations to latitude and that we just at the beginning of learning about the causes of sinkholes.
    Referencing buffer layer- from an insurance standpoint it is the layer that resides between the primary layer and the excess layers. If you are insuring a 10 mln building, various insurance companies can share in the layers. That way one company can avoid suffering such a hefty hit.
    So, with that all said, I think of myself as a buffer layer when trying to appease a situation; or create a connection; or bring something to someone’s attention; or land on a cloud before I hit the ground, etc.

    Interesting video and hypothesis as to the cause @Sara Jacobovici. The hypothesis seems plausible based on my knowledge of physics, nevertheless, its a disturbing trend. I would often wonder as I watched homes fall into a river after being built on the bend/bank of the river years before, or homes built on stilts along the ocean, fall after the coastline wore away, that we as humans often "tempt" nature. In those cases the cause is entirely our own. Rivers change course and eat away at the banks (never mind flooding), and coastal areas are subject to the punishing forces of the surf. Yet in this case, there's much more to it. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks all, @Ali Anani, @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, and @Deb 🐝 Helfrich for your comments. I am baffled by it all and can only assume that they are working on being able to detect the vulnerable areas to either prevent injury and damage or have individuals relocate to avoid injury or damage. The other thing that caused me some disturbance is the dramatic increase of these sinkholes over the last few years. While we are exploring space and other planets and preparing for a manned mission to Mars, you'd think that we would be taking care of our own home.

    #2 How does one create a buffer layer in these cases, @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman?

    @David B. Grinberg shared an article about whether other life forms exist out there in our universe. Andrew Fain writes in this article, http://www.universetoday.com/130227/why-havent-we-found-any-aliens-yet/, "In 50,000 years, humans will probably look a little different than people do now." One of the reasons for that is we and our planet don't look the same now as we did 50,000 ago. Here is one small example of how nature is in constant flux. ""We have this corridor pushing in all the alien species, who just push them out and replace them with a fauna, which is not the native one," says Galil, a marine biologist with Israel's National Institute of Oceanography." Aliens are not just extraterrestrial.

    #1 Great questions @Ali Anani. A sidebar to this is adaptation. If it's not the jellyfish's "brain" that enables it to leave it's original environment and survive the journey and and its new environment, adaptation must be at work here. What we are witnessing is adaptation without technology. Humans do have the brain to enhance our ability to survive. Are we paying too much attention to adaptation through devices and in this way sacrifice our innate abilities to adapt? How can we make the devices work for us in a more "adaptive" way without any sacrifice?

    Sorry to be posting this after the event. There are videos on the link below. What I find mind boggling about meteors and their "debris" is that this process of the earth's rotation and the path of meteors and meteor showers can be so predictable over a span of hundreds of years. Enjoy!

    @David B. Grinberg commented on @Sarah Elkins' Buzz:

    "...it is indeed a small world (after all) and shrinking everyday due to the advent of new and emerging technology. I've read that it would only take 2 or 3-hours to reach the moon from Earth -- yes, the moon! -- with NASA's most powerful jet propulsion engine currently being tested for a potential manned Mars mission. Thus, in the near future, I presume the aviation and aerospace industries will advance by leaps and bounds. Getting from coast to coast might involve as little time as today's Delta shuttle from NYC to DC. This will also make it easier to, let's say, visit Australia for a long weekend without all the hours and hours of travel time.
    Eventually, I envision interplanetary space travel within our solar system -- with base camps on the moon and mars. And, to put small into perspective, scientists say that our Milky Way Galaxy is equivalent in cosmic terms to one tiny grain of sand compared to all the grains of sand on all the beaches on our planet! Now that's small, indeed infinitesimal. Just think: scientists estimate over 100 billion galaxies in the known universe, each with over 100 billion stars. That's simply mind blogging. Don't even get me started on nanotechnology."

    Thanks so much for sharing my comments @Sara Jacobovici, which is most appreciated. For me, at least, considering the big picture helps put some otherwise smaller problems into the appropriate perspective. Like they say: don't sweat the small stuff -- and it's all small stuff! Thanks again!

    amazing and mind boggling. Then to reach you @Sara Jacobovici may be I need to travel in the opposite direction so as time may count. Direct flight may be difficult for no one reaches in no time.

    #1 Great contribution @Praveen Raj Gullepalli and great story. I also love when your write, "The micros are as infinitesimal as the macros and make one wonder if we look deep and far enough inside will it meet a point somewhere far far outside and somehow come full circle?"

    Always fascinating (and endlessly frustrating) to look that far out and get lost in space and imagination dear Sara! The micros are as infinitesimal as the macros and make one wonder if we look deep and far enough inside will it meet a point somewhere far far outside and somehow come full circle? Scriptures say that the human intellect is incapable of comprehending the nature of the universe and you need to transcend it (the intellect) to grasp the whole. (There go the intellectuals in which case, but they may stare and wonder!) In our country, a lot of us have been worshipping the Navagrahas (nine planets) and a heliocentric universe for thousands of years. Our ancient fellas somehow managed some kinda corporeal or non-corporeal inter-planetary/galactic travel and arrived at those conclusions and enscriptured them long before we had peekaboos pointed at the sky ;) Sigh. The most fascinating thingamagig for me is still the telescope. I built my own with a kit imported from the US in 1980...still have it. Came in a pack called the Optics Kit ;) In my ignorance as a kid, I even looked at that major major solar eclipse that aligned a lot many planets in a straight line sometime in the eighties. A decade later, when a champagne bottle cork popped my right eye black, I came to know i had a burn mark on my right retina thanks to that. Slightly impaired vision however. Now don't go about askin me about UFOs :)
