Beautiful shot. I think there is an excellent explanation cosmologically why the sun rises in the east and sets in the west.. and from the west it heads back east, in a complete perfect cycle, as if there is not one part of the circle that is unimportant.
I'm just wondering what the basis for the claim is. Especially since most of today's intelligent thought is based off the history of the East, examples being Ancient Rome and Greece as well as the Ancient Arabs who discovered played influential roles in the discovery of maths such as algebra.
my claims(although i didn't make any direct ones), might possibly be fallacious if we go into specific historical detail, but even if most of today's intelligent thought has its basis on eastern thought, the whole thing would appear to have turned around on its head.
perhaps the confusion arises from 'western enlightenment', which would refer specifically to the age of enlightenment. But my use of the term 'enlighten' would refer to imperialistic "civilizing missions" (stemming to a certain extent from the age of enlightenment) to make the rest of the world "see the light")
and many colonialist divide and rule strategies are the cause of present day problems in a lot of the nonwest
anyway, i didn't mean my words in an accusatory way...it would be very arrogant of me to do that while i'm sitting in front of a laptop in canada. it's just a general lamentation.
