Alice's Adventures In Wonderland (later known as Alice in Wonderland) is story of characters living in the under ground. Niels Klim's Journey Under the Ground is also another story about an encounter with people living down deep our land and fields. Now, the next story is about a super-developed civilization that strived under the ground when they escaped the big Flood (the Deluge).
The Coming Race, by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, is --like the others-- a fascinating story about how some ancient tribes escaped from the Big Deluge, lived in fully illuminated caves, developed a highly sophisticated form of government, and discovered a new form of energy that they called The Vril.

In the figure of the four-legged table shown here, which one is the first leg? Which one is the fourth leg of the table?. The answer is simply: none.
The same thing happens with the coordinate-dimensions of our universe: we cannot say that a specific dimension is the first, and no specific dimension is the fourth dimension.
But in a 4D-space, the concept of dimension-ordering is even more ambiguous because the fourth dimension can sometimes be another physical coordinate, and sometimes can be the time-dimension. Read the full article here.
Where does the infinite begin? At the end of the largest natural number? At the end of the largest real number? But, is this possible to attain?
The infinite begins right with the number 1, this is the exact "position" we can mark as: "infinitude starts here!".
In addition to this, does infinitude needs a starting point, or is it us that need this initial staring point as a reference to deal with such elusive concept? You don't need college math to understand why the infinite is so near to zero. Read the full article here.
Everything we do obey some physical law; everything. But when we speak of our daily activities, we tend to think that the law of gravity is the responsible for every movement of every body.
For example, the pleasant colors of red and orange hues of the sky at sunset --or sunrise-- are mainly caused by scattering of sunlight by particles in the atmosphere, or air molecules. But this effect is very far from the gravity pull.
Like this, there are hundreds of phenomena that show strange and unexpected behavior. But nothing escapes explanation.
Physics for Entertainment, by Yakov Perelman, is a book that explains almost a hundred of those common phenomena. Click here for Physics for Entertainment.
No matter what religious and scientific institutions do to hide the underlying confrontation between them, the truth is that there is no possibility of true reconciliation.
Faith has no place in the scientific school of thoughts. On the contrary, scientific evidence is not needed to believe in something. History of the Conflict Between Religion and Science is a classic book among historians, theologians, scientists, and teachers. Learn about the many ways in which science and religion are in opposition. Click here for History of the Conflict Between Religion and Science.
