Lightbulb The Beauty Thread

Hello folks,

I was reflecting on beauty and how important it is particularly when we feel depressed. When I am depressed, I often feel ugly and my mind dwells on unpleasant thoughts. Beauty can bring relief and a source of renewed hope. I believe there is always beauty to be found in the world when we search for it. Sometimes that's harder to do when we feel very low or scared. So here's a thread to help us remember the beauty.

Beauty can mean so many things to different people. A beautiful scene, a kind act, a soulful song, learning a new skill, self-appreciation, something from the Universe...

I heard a story about a shop owner who found a guy stealing. He asked the guy why he stole the items. The guy replied that it was food for himself and his brother because they didn't have the money for it. The shop owner told him that all he had to do was ask. He filled a bag with food items for both boys free of charge. When asked why he didn't call the police he said: "I didn't want him to get a criminal record. That could affect his whole future and stop him from getting a job. In my country if someone is hungry, you feed them."

I thought this story was beautiful.

Please share examples of beauty. That can certainly include something beautiful that you appreciate about yourself or a beautiful compliment you received.

When the sun shines on a mound of fresh snow, sometimes it looks blueish and sometimes has a hint of lavender. It is beautiful.

I read about the man giving the kid food instead of calling the police on him. I hope someone follows up with the kid to help them with what they need. That would also be beautiful!!

Yes it would! Perhaps someone will be inspired by the story.

A few days ago, there were results released for a telescope called as Event Horizon Telescope. The aim of the project was to capture the images of black holes. Here is a piece of the result.
The Beauty Thread


I find it beautiful. I am currently listened to the song Monsters of the Cosmos by Melody Sheep.


Mind you, getting stuck in a black hole is far from being beautiful, but I am awed by how the Universe works. Stephen Hawking also researched on black holes and their mechanism. There's a type of radiation called as Hawking radiation, which a black hole emits constantly. Eventually the black hole disappears.


I find it beautiful to ask myself, "What will happen when the center black hole of our galaxy, Sagittarius A* disappears?"



There's a type of momentum, called as angular momentum. It's said that even galaxies are rotating about something.


It's really beautiful to know, that there is really no boundary to the Universe. It's said to be a "limitless expanse."

Thank you for the marvelous contributions Lonely Chemist! I too am in awe of the Universe. The idea of a limitless expanse makes me feel equal parts humble and curious! My partner watches videos about space most nights before he goes to sleep. He was looking at the images of black holes the other day. He's thoroughly intrigued.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I think you have a beautiful mind

Neil DeGrasse Tyson once was asked, "What is the most astounding fact about the Universe?"
He replied,
Quote:
The most astounding fact [about the universe] is the knowledge that the atoms that comprise life on Earth, the atoms that make up the human body, are traceable to the crucibles that cooked light elements into heavy elements in their core under extreme temperatures and pressures.
These stars, the high mass ones among them, went unstable in their later years. They collapsed and then exploded, scattering their enriched guts across the galaxy—guts made of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen and all the fundamental ingredients of life itself.
These ingredients become part of gas clouds that condense, collapse, form the next generation of solar systems, stars with orbiting planets, and those planets now have the ingredients for life itself, so that when I look up at the night sky and I know that yes, we are part of this universe, we are in this universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the universe is in us.
When I reflect on that fact, I look up, many people feel small because they’re small and the Universe is big, but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars.
There’s a level of connectivity. That’s really what you want in life. You want to feel connected. You want to feel relevant. You want to feel like you are a participant in the goings on of activities and events around you. That’s precisely what we are just by being alive

I particularly like the italic part.


Congratulations on having a partner who's interested in astronomy! My (potential ) partner could not care less about his studies of chemistry and geology at undergrad level. Let alone something like astronomy. Only if shared similar interests, I'd have had a massive profit (LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL)


Thank you for your compliment. It is my dream to be a part of the scientific community. It's after all, the only place where bias and all negative things are kept at minimum.
