One of the highest espoused values in most cultures, particularly Anglo-Western cultures, is being "objective"—unbiased, logical, and sensible. Most of us are conditioned from early childhood to think of ourselves as seeking the "right" answers at the many decision points we encounter. Moment by moment, day by day, we want to believe that we are analyzing situations skillfully and basing our opinions and behavior on the correct conclusions.
We love to take a gander at the sun rising over the crest of a mountain, or lay down on our back in the park and watch the cloud formations, but most of what occurs in this world goes completely unnoticed.
Here are ten natural phenomena we need to see with our own eyes to believe fully. Volcanic Lightning Volcanic Lightning is a combination of, you guessed it, a lightning storm and a volcanic eruption occurring within the same space at the same time.
The two combine into one massive force to be reckoned with. Brinicles When the surface of an ocean freezes, such as around the poles, pockets of cold seawater are forced down into the deep. These pockets gathered together underneath the ice clusters and begin forming Brinicles, which is an odd name for underwater icicles.
Penitentes Penitentes are also ice formations, but they occur high in the mountains away from any water. These fields of ice form giant spikes reaching up to the sky, and each shard can be about 13 feet high in some cases.
Supercells Supercells or massive storm cells that generally form a lot of tornadoes underneath their eye. These terrifying storms wipe across the face of the world and devastate everything underneath. They are the most dangerous type of storm in the world. Fire Rainbows Fire Rainbows sound pretty badass, but these colorful arcs of light occur when the sun is perfectly set at 58 degrees along the horizon, and when cirrus clouds are floating high in the sky.
The rainbow will appear as if it is on fire. Sun Dogs Sun Dogs may have an odd name, but these phenomenon are simply ice crystals in the atmosphere reflecting the light above. The refracted light causes halos to form, reaching from the sky to the ground.
Waterspouts Waterspouts are exactly what they sound like, massive tornadoes that form over the water. The wind force sucks the water into the tornado, causing it to be made of mostly water, giving it an eerie blue coloring.
Snow Donuts Snow Donuts are weird, simply put. These masses of snow are blown together into the rare shape in just the right temperature. Gravity or the wind can cause these donuts to form, some of which reach up to 26 inches tall. Columnar Basalt Columnar Basalt are, obviously, columns that form from basalt.
Alone, this is not impressive, but when they form together into a honeycomb, you receive a truly beautiful sight to behold. These clusters form all over the world, too. Frost Flowers Frost Flowers are flowers made out of nothing but the frost of a cold morning.
These shapes are built from ice particles around the base of various plants and chunks of wood.
When the temperature goes below freezing outside, but is still warm inside a flower, these can form.

(I have to smile at my own lapses as an engineer!) Within established institutions popular beliefs often keep us in even more of a trance.
It is the ability to see and believe in all the wonderful signs that always surround us. If we believe in angels, know they have the ability to send us signs and believe we will notice the signs.
Nov 07, · We’ll fill in the gaps on the Russia investigations. The American people will see his tax returns, not because of any voyeuristic interest, but because they should know if he is corrupt. And we will look at the cashing in of access to the oval office and that has been concerning and his financial entanglements overseas.
Researchers believe that self-concept is a complex mix of how we see ourselves, what others have told us about ourselves, and what society says we should be. Sep 10, · Re: Won't believe it until we see it!!
Sep 10, , PM Universal is a walk on around mid september onwards although the weekends are busy at most parks, thats why we go at the end of september every year. We take great pride in our ability to communicate what we believe and our core philosophies to the retirement community.
We know exactly what we do and how we work with people.
