How Things Work?

We see a variety of things and events happening around us. Many of them so part and parcel of our lives that we keep on using them with out thinking about their working principle. But if we know how do they work and what is the science behind them, perhaps we may use them effectively and efficiently. This type of knowledge may enhance our understanding of the basic principles of science and their applications in designing the machines and tools that we use. Here you will find the basic science and technology of working of different types of things around us.

Thought
of
the Day
 
Ideas have become far more important to us than action - ideas so cleverly expressed in books by the intellectuals in every field. The more cunning, the more subtle, those ideas are the more we worship them and the books that contain them. We are those books, we are those ideas, so heavily conditioned are we by them. We are forever discussing ideas and ideals and dialectically offering opinions. Every religion has its dogma, its formula, its own scaffold to reach the gods, and when inquiring into the beginning of thought we are questioning the importance of this whole edifice of ideas. We have separated ideas from action because ideas are always of the past and action is always the present - that is, living is always the present. We are afraid of living and therefore the past, as ideas, has become so important to us.
