@ Four Wonders of Mine

Usually, though there are other views, the 'Seven Wonders of the World' are said as follows;


Great Pyramid of Giza
Hanging Gardens of Babylon
Temple of Artemis at Ephesus
Statue of Zeus at Olympia
Mausoleum of Maussollos at Halicamassus
Colossus of Rhodes
Lighthouse of Alexandria

As I have been working everyday by the side of the 'Great Pyramid of Giza,' have been to a site on which the 'Lighthouse of Alexandria' once tower and have visited the ruins where the 'Hanging Garden of Babylon' may have existed, I can say that I saw and visited the 'three wonders' among the 'seven wonders.'


And, what I want to talk is not about the 'Seven Wonders of the World,' but about the 'Four Wonders of Mine.'


From my childhood I had extraordinary curiosity, hence I immediately started thinking what on earth it was or why in the world it worked if I saw something mysterious, heard some strange sound or read some miraculous story, and I used to continue thinking for days when I couldn't understand at once. Usually I stop and stare at something thinking what that is, however, it is one of my vices, I sometimes continue to walk staring something. And I often bumped my head against a telegraph pole which has been decreasing day by day.


So, although the number of my questions may not reach the one of 'Wikipedia,' the 'wonders of mine' furthermore exceed the 'four wonders.' I intuitionally thought that if various branches and leaves were cut off, they might be summarised into the 'four wonders, hence I titled this blog as the 'Four wonders of Mine.' The 'Four Wonders of Mine' are the 'wonder of the cosmos,' the 'wonder of nature,' the 'wonder of evolution' and the 'wonder of mind.'


The 'wonder of the cosmos': a simple question everybody probably once has had whether the infinite exists outside the infinite or not though the present cosmology tells that the cosmos is infinite.

The 'wonder of nature': a question to the existence of a numeral that there lie numerals such as the circular constant and natural logarithm, which everybody studies at school, behind nature, and they have considerable influence on and give convenience to our daily life.


The 'wonder of evolution': a question to mimicry on how they could change the whole or part of their body, such as a kind of mantis which completely looks like a branch or a kind of butterfly which has owl-like eyes on its wings.


The 'wonder of mind': a question to jealousy that, I don't know exactly about the other animals, it is very difficult to remove a sensation to feel others jealously from our heart. The theme of jealous does not remain in each one's internal problem but extends to the problem of religious conflictions covering the whole society and furthermore to a rejection reaction of the body.


From the next blog I would like to tell the individual wonders one by one.


The attached illustration is the 'Seven Wonders of the World.' The third picture from the top on the right side is the 'Lighthouse of Alexandria.' Now, the Egyptian Government and the European Union has collaboratively been proceeding the reconstruction project.
