“The more you know; the more you see.”

Assuming you’re not a doctor, if you hold an X-Ray image you hardly see anything. You could tell whether it’s an X-Ray of the chest or the arm, but you wouldn’t be able to tell whether the bone is broken or not, or whether the chest is infected. But a doctor can! This is because the doctor sees more in the image. It’s meaningless for you but it tells the doctor a lot. The doctor’s eyes aren’t any sharper than yours, but simply he can see more details than you because he knows more than you.

About two months ago, I went with the family and friends to the Planetarium @Bristol. We learned about the stars, or rather we learned how we read the sky. Before this trip, the sky at night had been the same to me around the year. The south like the north and the east like the west, there was no difference at all. However, in the planetarium it was explained to us how we could find the North Star between the thousands of the stars in the sky, by determining the Big Dipper and the Little Dipper. I was lucky that a friend, who his background is related to astronomy, was sitting next to me. So he was explaining anything the young lady missed in her presentation.









Now I enjoy the scene of a clear sky at night, I know it’s not very often to have a clear sky in the UK and even if we have we hardly see any star because the light pollution is just too bad. But the sky is different to me now. And I would recommend the Planetarium to anyone, children and adults. Learn more, see more, contemplate more, and find some of the footprints of the Creator.




"It is He Who maketh the stars (as beacons) for you, that ye may guide yourselves, with their help, through the dark spaces of land and sea: We detail Our signs for people who know." [6:97]

I really enjoyed what you have written about the stars, but to me, it meant that we we all relay on each other in a society. A person may think that the knowledge that he/she holds is meaningless, maybe in philosophy. On the contrary, in real life it means new piece of information to another person. additionally, people have lived the ages of power, belief, or even science, all relying on knowledge, which is based on information. Keep up the good work!!!!

ليش ما تقولنا عن هالرحلات اللطيفة :P

It was a very interesting topic my friend. It seems that you had a very enjoyable trip!! I will talk about what you have mentioned in your introduction from a different angle. I feel that with rapidly advancing technology, usually you don't have to know more to see more! For example, the new scanning instruments (CT scan and MRI etc...) that you are familiar with powered by sophisticated soft wares that tell the doctor what's wrong without looking at any pictures. I believe this is applicable to all fields of science. What I am concerned about is that in very near future, you don’t have to know more to see more unless you are interested in the knowledge. I might be wrong!!

الأخ\الأخت ملح الحياة:

شكرا على مرورك الأول وعلى كلامك اللطيف

نورت :)

بوسلمى:

شوقتنا حق هالحلقة

مووجودة على النت؟

الزرقاء وندى الجنة:

شكرا لكِ أختي

أعتقد أن أفضل طريقة هي زيارة القبة السماوية وهي موجودة في الكويت أيضا.

هناك مواقع كثيرة على الانترنت لكن طريقة العرض والشرح في القبة السماوية مشوقة ومشجعة للبحث في هذا الموضوع.

جربي وأخبرينا

مشكلتكم انكم بس تخلصون دوام على طول المطار.

استثمر وقتك اهني شوي!

حسن:

كانت رحلة ممتعة بالفعل وذلك ببركة من كنا بصحبتهم

:)

أما بالنسبة للاشعة الحديثة فلا أعتقد أن هذا التطور موجود في عالم الطب. الى الان نحتاج الى متخصص، دكتور أو غيره، لترجمة الصور وتحويلها الى تقرير على الورق.

التطور الموجود في عالم السيارات للاسف الشديد غير موجود في عالم الطب.

شكرا لك

أخي العزيز صلاح
كلامك حق والله، يرسل الكثير من البشر الأنظار إلى السماء ويرون الملايين من النجوم و العجيب هنا أن الكثير منا و منهم أنا لا نستطيع قراءة حقائقها و استيعاب ايحاءاتها و الجدير بالذكر هنا هو أن وجودها له دور عظيم في اتزان الكون ناهيك عن جمالها الدال على ابداع و ظمة خالقها، فهنيئا لك على هذه التجربة المميزة و معرفة حقائق تملأ القلب إيمانا و نورا و شكرا جزيلا على المقالة الممتعة حقا

the doctot can read the x-ray
because he studied and understood
It in the science
.

I like very much to look forward to the sky
and look at the stars also the lighting moon
I like to see clear calm sky ,i felt it bring to my body a
stability


your post reminds me of the third grade
they took me to النادي العلمي
and i see the stars and they gave us some information
which its now, not exist in my brain

i had a class in school where they taught us all these things, and for a while it was one of my hobbies, i always wanted to see a shooting star but never got to .

I forgot nearly all i had learned

i think i gna get my old books out

Salah said...

eshda3wa:

Going on, get your old book. I think it’s worth it, and who knows you might be able to give us some astronomical lessons as well.

Thanks
