gitanjali - 4

Thou hast made me known to friends whom I knew not. Thou hast given me seats in homes not my own. Thou hast brought the distant near and made a brother of the stranger.

I am uneasy at heart when I have to leave my accustomed shelter; I forget that there abides the old in the new, and that there also thou abidest.

Through birth and death, in this world or in others, wherever thou leadest me it is thou, the same, the one companion of my endless life who ever linkest my heart with bonds of joy to the unfamiliar.

When one knows thee, then alien there is none, then no door is shut. Oh, grant me my prayer that I may never lose the bliss of the touch of the one in the play of many.

the flower

Once in a golden hour
I cast to earth a seed.
Up there came a flower,
The people said, a weed.

To and fro they went
Thro' my garden bower,
And muttering discontent
Cursed me and my flower.

Then it grew so tall
It wore a crown of light,
But thieves from o'er the wall
Stole the seed by night.

Sow'd it far and wide
By every town and tower,
Till all the people cried,
"Splendid is the flower!"

Read my little fable:
He that runs may read.
Most can raise the flowers now,
For all have got the seed.

And some are pretty enough,
And some are poor indeed;
And now again the people
Call it but a weed.

why do we perceive the sky to be a dome above us ?
i got an answer saying "because the earth is round".
hmm... might sound plausible but it dint satisfy me so
i went about thinking and this is what i think is the
reason :
let me first explain why i dint find the above answer
satisfying. the fact that earth is a sphere, is not
something that a person standing on earth can
perceive. the reasons are pretty straight forward. the
area of the earth visible to the human eye even when
standing on an elevated building would not even be
0.0001% of the surface area. so how can you perceive
an enveloping sphere to be a concentric sphere to
the piece of matter you stand on?
now to my explanation. when you look at a tree nearby
and an electric pole a lil' far and building between
you and the pole, you can interprit distances in
metrics known to you. but when you look at the sky,
all the objects are at distances incomprehensible
to the human brain. they are all just "far". now this
metric means, every object on the horizon, zenith
east, west etc are all just "far". so you are standing
at the centre of a sphere of radius "far". and thats
why you perceive the sky to be a dome i.e the
inside of the sphere.
