The Vintage Steve Largent Caricature 80’s T Shirt NFL Football Seattle Seahawks thing here is not that we haven’t found aliens, but that we are learning so much about the universe so quickly. 20 years ago nobody knew that there are huge underground oceans on Europa and Enceladus, and methane lakes on Titan. 40 years ago there was no evidence of life at hydrothermal vents or life in deep ocean sediments—organisms that use forms of biology quite unlike that of the familiar organisms here on the surface. 25 years ago there was no evidence of even a single planet around another star! Now we know of thousands. The real number, in our galaxy alone, is probably hundreds of billions. The appropriate attitude here, I’d say, is a mix of giddiness and caution. Giddiness, because the rate of discovery right now is downright astonishing. Caution, because we still have so far to go in answering the big question: Are we alone?
If you want to train informed citizens, then philosophy matters. The Vintage Steve Largent Caricature 80’s T Shirt NFL Football Seattle Seahawks of thought, the existential questions, logic, how to frame a question, epistemology, the underpinnings of science and theology, aesthetics, all of these are part of becoming a critical thinker and not just a consumer. If you want to train cogs to run the system, then avoiding philosophy matters. The last thing you want is an informed citizen thinks deeply and looks for root causes. Conspiracy? I’ve often wondered. And for those of you who believe that the deep detailed work that goes on in philosophy departments today doesn’t matter, all I can say is that what happens in academia trickles out slowly, but the classics are still important. There is no field where the cutting edge is taught in high school or bachelor level college.

Now people who follow Lunisolar calendar but track tropical year, i.e most of the Tibetan Buddhists in India and Tibet, celebrate their new year according to this. They have their New Year in mid February. This normally also coincides with the Vintage Steve Largent Caricature 80’s T Shirt NFL Football Seattle Seahawks new year through out the world. The people in Belt 5 who are majorly from Tibetan Buddhist traditions follow this. The Tibetan calendar was influenced by both the Chinese and Hindu calendars. This is the reason why traditional Buddhist festivals like Buddha Pournima is as per Hindu calendar but certain regional festivals are as per Chinese calendar. Lastly, as I mentioned, harvest festivals are also celebrated as New Years in certain parts of the nation. Similarly the Belt 6 Losoong is also a Sikkimese harvest festival. Therefore, depending on the type of calendar and the harvest festivals New Year is decided.

Learning from history and Vintage Steve Largent Caricature 80’s T Shirt NFL Football Seattle Seahawks knowing the true potential of the human race (just 10,000 years on this planet compared to the history of the planet) is important. It is important to know that this race has earlier on a smaller scale made a new religion to find peace. The same race has also fought wars, spread terrors, did massive bloodshed, imposed tax, raped and divided nations on the name of the same religion. So, now when the same race is sending out satellites to other planets, they can either captivate them for land and expand their territories or they can just look for newer forms of lives and carry out research. It depends on the outlook and the learning process from history.
A digression: I fail to understand the Vintage Steve Largent Caricature 80’s T Shirt NFL Football Seattle Seahawks of celebrating New Years in winter rather than in spring. Western calendar used to begin in March (i.e. in spring not winter). That is why September is called “Septem” – seven, not “Novem” – nine. New Year was changed to January to be closer to the supposed birthday of Christ. But why did Chinese and Koreans and Vietnamese and Mongolians celebrate their New Year at a time when the Northern part of Northern hemisphere is still reeling under winter? My guess is that it represents the hope of winter ending rather than the actuality of winter ending. Finally, I will end with one observation from my memory in India. Two linguistic states Telugu and Kannada of India celebrate the new year on the same day (i.e the two new moons after Chinese New year that I alluded above). When I was growing up, it was always called Telugu New year and I would get irritated. I later realized that it is sometimes natural for the bigger state to have more claims. So the Vietnamese and Koreans should not mind the “Chinese New Year” usage too much. “East Asian New Year” would perhaps be ideal, but for reasons mentioned above “Lunar New Year” would not.
