PowerPoint Presentation: Eyes Eyes Eyes everywhere. Let us look into our eyes in all its manifestations and magnificence. By Balayogi –email@example.com PowerPoint Presentation: THE ROMANCE OF THE EYES When with your eyes you just SEE I know it is an expression of your concern for me; When with your eyes you give me serious STARE I know it is an expression of your care; When with your eyes you merely GLANCE I know, with your continued stare you don’t want to put me in a trance When with your eyes you pierce into me and LOOK I know it stimulates the stuff above my neck; When with your eyes you ESPY (to discern something obscure) I know to come near you I must try; When with your eyes you Descry (to discern something obscure) I know ,in it, with you, only a few can vye ; When with your eyes you LEER (to look slyly) I know, unconsciously, my attention it does veer; When with your eyes you emotionally GAZE ( look fixedly) I know it penetrates my heart deeper than x-rays; When with your eyes you PEEK (to glance furtively) I know it is involvement and anxiety at its peak; When with your eyes you just PEEP I know it brings out the feelings that are deep; When with your eyes you just GLIMPSE I know all my worries it trims; When with your eyes you carefully WATCH I know about my security I need not worry much; When with your eyes you carefully GANDER (look purposefully) I know it is to remind memory’s pleasant calendar; When with your eyes you SQUINT I know I must take the hint; When with your eyes you are BLINKING I know it involves deep thinking; When with your eyes you widen your VIEW I know my heart is going to melt like the early morning dew When with the eyes of the mind, if we see, it is only from under the eyebrows I know, and of course, you too know, come forth the Cupid’s arrows. PowerPoint Presentation: We see everything, read everything and look at many things with our eyes. We use our eyes extensively to know many things but why have we not bothered to know anything about the eyes? This is an attempt to know some of the history and interesting trivia about eyes as also the many expressions in the language based on our eyes. Eye is one of the most visible, attractive and important part of human body and the one manifesting the highest impact . PowerPoint Presentation: As one of the easiest and best among the sensory organs in terms of instant initiation of aiding perception of the mind and compassion of the heart, it plays a pivotal role in everyone’s life. PowerPoint Presentation: Beneath all its superb qualities and simple façade, there lurks a highly complex system that makes the operational side of eyes. Its evolutionary biology is too vast and has thrown up lot of interesting scientific studies. According to the physiologist Sir Charles Sherrington [d.1952] the eye has something like 137 million ‘seeing elements’ or ‘light-sensitive cells among its other marvels’. A century earlier Charles Darwin wrote in 1882 “I remember well the time when the thought of the eye made me cold all over”. PowerPoint Presentation: Of course now with the availability of the accumulated knowledge and data of the many great studies made by scientists and the presence of advanced technology we are at an advantage to know more, learn quicker and better understand many intricate aspects of eye, its working and we have reached a stage where we have started making the bionic eye too. PowerPoint Presentation: Embryologically and anatomically the eye is an extension of the brain, and is in effect the exposed part of the brain. Every feeling of the heart is transmitted through the eyes and every acknowledgement of the mind is conveyed by the eyes. That’s why psychiatrists have confirmed that there is a direct relation between the pupil size and mental and emotional reactions. Health and disease are supposed to be easily discerned from the eyes. As one author has pointed out, “The special anatomy and physiology of the eye predestine it to function as the primary mediator between the world within us and the world without”. PowerPoint Presentation: One of the best compliments to eyes could be this “Love is not blind; it is an extra eye, which shows us what is most worthy of regard.” James Matthew Barrie PowerPoint Presentation: Third eye Of course the best write up about the third eye and in general about the sense of sight itself is as always from the book which I use extensively both to study evolutionary biology and evolutionary psychology, namely THE SEVEN MYSTERIES OF LIFE by GUY MURCHIE under chapter 7 ELEVEN SENSES OF RADIATION AND FEELING in its sub heading titled SIGHT starts on page 182 and ends in page 199 as follows….. ” significantly, the temperature eye and the visual eye both evolved from the same matrix at the bottom of the third ventrical of the brain, out of which the visual eye moved forward to view the outer world, while the temperature eye turned inward to monitor the blood, their relation becoming one of the most elegant instances of sense complementarity in all the kingdom of life”. ……contd PowerPoint Presentation: Contd…..Also you may read and enjoy From http://www.paranormal-encyclopedia.com/t/third-eye/ the following “Although in science, the third eye is often associated with the pineal "eye" or gland. Both Eastern Religions and Spiritualistic traditions recognize the third eye as the seat of the body's mystical and meditative powers7, 8. The pineal gland, now called "the third eye", may have been the "first" eye according to scientist David Klein11. Long recognized as a light-sensing sensory organ in reptiles and birds6, 8, 11, until recently, scientists thought that, in humans, the third eye was a vestigial (underdeveloped) organ that served as little purpose as the body's appendix. However, recent studies indicate that the third eye helps regulate the metabolism and the body's circadian (or biological) clock through its production of the hormone melatonin11, 12. Current scientific research reveals that the third eye is possibly a tumor inhibitor and plays a role in sleep disturbances, reproductive irregularities and psychological disorders12. "And then suddenly, out of the centre of my forehead, an eye opened, and I saw this light to be the brightest, most beautiful thing in the world.2" - Ben Okri Metaphysical studies, Eastern religions, and Spiritualists recognize the third eye as an important part of the human psyche. Hindus call the third eye, the doyoya-̣ḍ̣ṛsti or "divine-seeing eye"4, 5. Yoga traditions believe that all mental and spiritual realities have a physical counterpart. They point to the third eye as a light into self-reflection, an organ through which we see spiritual realities and one that is the seat of our intuition7. In Spiritualistic circles and yoga traditions, opening the third eye is essential to self-understanding and the growth of consciousness. Dr. Samuel Sagan3 of Clairvision School compares the third eye to a switch. When opened, the third eye awakens and controls spiritual energy that can lead us to higher states of consciousness. Through meditation and reflection, the individual can strengthen third eye abilities” PowerPoint Presentation: We shall unravel as many interesting scientific aspects of eyes, not medical or anatomical literature [on these there are huge volumes of information available for basic information you may visit http://www.kellogg.umich.edu/theeyeshaveit/index.html ] but areas of interests and controversies in evolutionary biology gleaned from several sources, followed by the references to eyes in literature, religion, mythology, theology, idioms, words and expressions based on eyes in language [ confined to English]etc. All literature and religious texts abound in exquisite descriptions of various shapes, sizes and sparkle of the eyes. PowerPoint Presentation: Evolution of the EYES From http://learn.genetics.utah.edu/content/variation/eye/ “Eyes most likely evolved from simple to complex through a gradual series of tiny steps. Piecing together the sequence of eye evolution is challenging, and we don't know the sequence of steps that led to every modern eye. But we do know that modern animal eyes come in many varieties, spanning a continuum from the simplest to the most complex. This demonstrates that all types of eyes are useful, and that eyes of intermediate complexity could also have formed as steps in the evolution of complex eyes. Researchers at Lund University wanted to find out how long it might take for a complex eye to evolve. Starting with a flat, light-sensitive patch, they gradually made over 1,800 tiny improvements—forming a cup, constricting the opening, adding a lens—until they had a complex, image-forming eye. It is important to note that every tiny change these researchers made measurably improved image quality. The researchers concluded that these steps could have taken place in about 360,000 generations, or just a few hundred thousand years. 550 million years have passed since the formation of the oldest fossil eyes, enough time for complex eyes to have evolved more than 1,500 times.” PowerPoint Presentation: Given the variety of eyes found throughout the animal kingdom, evolutionary biologists once thought eyes had evolved independently dozens or even hundreds of times. Thanks to DNA sequencing and other molecular tools, we know today that modern eyes are built from many of the same genes. Ancient "toolkit" genes (such as opsins , Pax , and Otx ) first evolved in a primitive ancestor that gave rise to all animals with eyes. These genes have been preserved throughout evolution, and today we still find them at work in all types of eyes. The diversity of modern animal eyes is the result of refinements and specializations built on top of this basic genetic framework. Not all eye features are built using the same genes. Lenses, for example, are refinements that arose when different genes were recruited to perform a similar task in different organisms. Similarly, shielding pigments arose from a variety of genes. Molecular analysis has shown that many genes in the eye, whether shared among organisms or not, had other functions first. They were later recruited to take on second jobs.

It demonstrates how the study of living forms can successfully be used to interpret fossil ones, and vice versa. The book's magnificent sweep is all-encompassing, and remarkably up-to-date for such a cross-disciplinary work. It's rare for one person to have such a broad background, but Schwab has achieved this, such that the work provides an example for future studies of the kind. -Prof. Jennifer A.

From http://www.colormatters.com/color-and-vision/look-inside-the-eye “Look Inside the Eye Color vision can be defined by what kind of color-detecting equipment exists inside the eye of a human or non-human animal. Some species see no colors, some see a few colors, some see all colors, and some see colors that are not visible to the typical human eye. The color-detecting equipment inside an eye is called a "cone." (The rods are for night vision.) The number of visible colors is defined by the kinds of cones in the eye. PowerPoint Presentation: The most visible color is Chartreuse. Yellowish green, chartreuse is naturally placed right in the middle of the frequencies of visible light. Human eyes have receptors for green, blue and red. Being placed in the middle, chartreuse actuates the most of these receptors to fire, making it distinct and easier to spot. For the same reason, in some metropolises, firetrucks have been modified from red to a yellowish green color to make them more visible and obvious to the eye. PowerPoint Presentation: Eye floaters " are deposits or condensation in the vitreous jelly of the eye. People use the term eye floaters to describe seeing floating spots within their vision when they look around. Eye floaters may be present in only one eye or both eyes. PowerPoint Presentation: Reference to eyes in Egyptian mythology http://www.egyptological.com/2011/04/eye-of-ra-eye-of-horus-1155 PowerPoint Presentation: Monsters in Greek mythology http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0881992.html PowerPoint Presentation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_one-eyed_creatures_in_mythology_and_fiction List of one-eyed creatures in mythology and fiction In mythology, this trait was generally associated with fearsome creatures In mythology Arimaspi or Arimaspoi, legendary people of northern Scythia , "always at war with their neighbours" and stealing gold from griffins. They had a single eye in the centre of the forehead. Cyclops (plural: cyclopes or cyclopses), a race of giants in Greek and Roman mythology, including Polyphemus . They likewise had a single eye in the centre of the forehead. Hagen or Högni, a Burgundian warrior in German and Norse legend, depicted as one-eyed in some accounts Hitotsume-kozō , monsters ( obake ) in Japanese folklore . They had a single giant eye in the center of the face. Jian (bird) , a bird in Chinese mythology with only one eye and one wing. A pair of such birds were dependent on each other and inseparable. Likho , a embodiment of evil fate and misfortune in Slavic mythology . Psoglav , one-eyed dog-headed monster in Serbian mythology . Kabandha , a demon with no head or neck with one large eye on the breast and a mouth on the stomach. Kabandha appears in Hindu mythology as a character of Ramayana . Tepegoz , one-eyed ogre in Oghuz Turkish epic Book of Dede Korkut Balor , figure from Irish mythology . Known for his evil eye, he could kill by looking at you. Prophesied that he would be killed by his grandson, so he attempted to have his grandchildren killed. One survived, Lugh, who killed him at the second battle of Magh Tuiredh. Odin , king of the Norse gods, who gave up an eye to gain wisdom and power. PowerPoint Presentation: Body language of the eyes normal, sincere and from the bottom of the heart smile is made with the smiling eyes, when people lie or become nervous they blink more frequently manifesting what is known as blinking eyes, disinterest or unwillingness is expressed with trying to shut the eyes either by trying to squeeze the eyes with hands, or cover them with something or avoiding eye contact or manifesting some form or other of shut eye or drooping eyes phenomenon. Happiness and interest are manifested with dilated pupils and glowing eyes. PowerPoint Presentation: Eyes in Ch inese mythology Zhulong ( Chinese : 燭龍 ; pinyin : zhúlóng ; Wade–Giles : chu-lung; literally "torch dragon") or Zhuyin ( Chinese : 燭陰 ; pinyin : zhúyīn ; Wade–Giles : chu-yin; literally "illuminating darkness") was a giant red draconic solar deity in Chinese mythology . It supposedly had a human's face and snake's body, created day and night by opening and closing its eyes, and created seasonal winds by breathing. PowerPoint Presentation: The Great American Seal in the Dollar notes Contd.. PowerPoint Presentation: The front side of the Seal has two Latin phrases around its periphery: " Annuit Coeptis " ( 13 letters) which means "Announcing the beginning or arrival", and on the lower scroll, "Novus Ordo Seclorum " which translates to "New Secular Order" or " New World Order ". The New World Order is an expression that has been used by illuminized Freemasonry since the days of Dr. Adam Weishaupt to signify the coming world government. Weishaupt said “It is necessary to establish a universal regime over the whole world”. The word "MASON" is found by drawing a hexagram. At the center of focus is a pyramid with a seperated triangular capstone containing an eye which is radiating light in a circular fashion. This "eye" is called the "third eye" of clairvoyance in the Hindu religion, the eye of Osiris, the eye of Horus or the eye of the sun god Ra in Egypt, and the All-Seeing Eye in Freemasonry. Also refered to as the eye of Providence, “the eye never slumbers nor sleeps,” which alludes to the "Gestapo" or "Big Brother" system of constant surveillance. The all-seeing eye is the favorite symbol of the Illuminati. To them it simply represents the eye of Satan seeing all and is usually atop a pyramid, the symbol for a top-down command and control system of compartmentalization. The capstone has not come down on the Pyramid indicating an incomplete structure. Only when the New World Order is established upon all nations and once the world leader is enthroned will the plan be complete. There are 13 steps in the pyramid. The number thirteen not only has a bad connotation as far as bad luck, it also has a very high significance in the occult by representing the 13 bloodlines of the Satanic familys . Thirteen was a mystical number to the Egyptians and Babylonians, and also the Masons . contd … PowerPoint Presentation: The 9 Roman numerals, MDCCLXXVI , appear on the foundation of the pyramid and translate to 1776 , the year of independence and therefore the founding of the United States of America. However, another important event occured that year, the founding of the Illuminati (the enlightened ones). The Pythagoreans, believed that the source of all truth was hidden in geometric symbolism, with the triangle especially as the most sacred of all symbols, regarded as the key to unlocking all hidden wisdom. Placing these values in their respective positions of importance, the first Roman numeral of each group being placed as the capstone and the remainder being placed at the base of each pyramid, … gives a trinity of 3 symbols each: M DC, C LX and X VI each of which is in decending sequence for 1600, 160 and 16 in arabic numbers. The initials of this unholy trinity are the top numerals MCX which adds up to 1110 while hidden as the remainder are the base numerals DCLXVI , or 666 . In the Babylonian sexagesimal system (base 60) 1110 (x 0.6) also becomes 666 . So, 1776 has hidden in it 666 in the Babylonian and Roman number systems. 1776 also contains 888, the number of Christ, more prominently, as 888 x 2 = 1776. The Anti-Christ is known to be hiding his true identity, claiming to be Christ. PowerPoint Presentation: Googly eyes or jiggly eyes are small plastic craft supplies used to imitate eyeballs. Googly eyes traditionally are composed of a clear, hard-plastic shell, with a smaller, black plastic disk trapped within. The plastic shells come in a variety of sizes ranging from 3 ⁄ 16 inches (4.8 mm) to over 3 inches (8 cm) diameter. The inner black disk is allowed to move freely within the larger clear plastic shell, which makes the eyes appear to move. These disks come in a variety of colors including pink, blue, yellow, red and green. Googly eyes are used for a variety of arts and crafts projects including pipe cleaner farm animals, silly sock puppets, and other creations brought forth from the imaginations of children. Googly eyes may also be attached to inanimate objects in order to give the objects a "silly" or "cute" appearance. This use often personifies the objects for a humorous effect. PowerPoint Presentation: The CAT’S EYE is a retroreflective safety device used in road marking and was the first of a range of raised pavement markers . It originated in the UK in 1933 and is today used all over the world.
