Eventful Universe is the Magic of the God/Allah/Infinite- Mind Blowing Facts about the Universe:

The thesis understudying the Universe & Cosmology easy way to in English, codes of law my theories with strong power of philosophy of faculty of science and finally fulfillments find out the Universe Creations & Finality able to see our Creator!

Theory: “Own Mind & Location is the Present and Past for All” In these way- Philosophers finally found- Eventful Universe is the Magic of the God/Allah/Infinite- Mind Blowing Facts about the Universe. Nature’s plan in everything is the Play of Imagination. 1st case was the birth of the Universe not the Big Bang, Birth of the Universe 2nd case was the Big Bang and 3rd case was the evolution. Observatory Scientists are seeking the Big Bang nearly 14 billion years past from us yet! With my theory and philosophy- I was looking at the Big Bang at this place. Again found- the Magic of philosophy- Same moment or event- there are two cases of the Universe. Just at this moment or event everything has created again the same event or very moment nothing created in the Universe. We are looking at the Big Universe again; it is infinitesimal. On the Rule of Science- Looking at the Universe is 14 billion years past from us, again on rule of my theory with philosophy- I am looking our Universe is in my Brain’s molecules. Age of the Universe is nearly 14 billion years yet! On rule my theory with philosophy I find the age of the Universe is yours life-time and life-less position is in the Dark Energy. We and our eventful Universe is copy such like CD and Digital Universe, Real copy is in power of faculty or in imagination power of the God/Allah/Infinite. Again find out- We everybody is the Universe & Location of Our Home planet is the center point in the Universe because- We are here. Also our Sun is centered from the Sun location. You are center point from your location & I’m center point from my location yet my very Brain is Centre of the Universe. Also your brain is Centre yet when you fulfillment is understood following URLs thesis- A New World & Universe to Explore Alone. Then you can tell that- My very Brain is the Centre & Only way of Portal to the Universe. At: https://lnkd.in/fUqC_ce

The thesis Reward for the Mankind & It for Scientific Global:


A New World & Universe to Explore Alone:

You are aware that in the research activities of space science and creation mystery there is no need for an academic or university higher degree. In this regard in the past history the names of philosophers are recorded who have contributed something new for mankind of the world but they did not attain academic education of their own. Yet! Alfred Nobel says that- Present time needs Higher Education for Nobel Prize in Physics.


A New Universe to Explore Alone:

See into following below in the link page: Sketch of the Universe and History of famous scientists Galileo, Einstein, Hawking, Darwin, Hubble & James Peebles- in PDF URLs version: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/new-universe-explore-alone-shahidur-rahman-sikder/?published=t
In order of merit found realism- Who is the right one for World frontier & Higher Degrees of World fore-knowledge of Philosophy of faculty of Sciences, Astronomy, Astrophysics & Cosmology with Infinite and Infinitesimal???????


A New World to Explore Alone:

Albert Einstein's comment was right, “Science without religion is lame and religion without science is blind”. In my research result-now I can take the resolution that- “Science with religion is natural and religion with science is vision”. See importance- Religious are a Religion a Nation at: bit.ly/38aieqE


World-wide I am seeking who can give me strictly the right note on the thesis?

Can give Support for world frontier & Higher Education Degrees with Support My Goals!

Together, the Old Capitol Museum and the Museum of Natural History form the UI Pentacrest Museums, the university's doorways to discovery in the heart of downtown Iowa City.

For more than 150 years, Old Capitol has represented the pioneering spirit of Iowa and The University of Iowa. The last capitol of the Iowa territory, it served as Iowa's first state capitol from 1846 to 1857. When the state government moved to Des Moines in 1857, Old Capitol served as the University's first building and the founding place of many departments. In 1976, Old Capitol became a Nationa

If you've been following along with the Zebra story from earlier this week, we thought you might like to hear that we got images back from the Department of Radiology today.

Museum Zebra Gets X-ray

Read about an amazing interdepartmental effort to X-ray a Zebra at the Museum of Natural History in preparation for conservation.

https://pentacrestmuseums.uiowa.edu/news/2021/09/museum-zebra-gets-x-ray

Museum Zebra Gets X-ray UI Department of Radiology and the Museum of Natural History team up for an interdepartmental collaboration to X-ray a Zebra in preparation of conservation efforts.

Photos from The University of Iowa Pentacrest Museums's post 09/20/2021

Check out some shots from the unbelievable collaboration between Museum staff and our colleagues at the UI Department of Radiology over the weekend.

X-Rays taken by the talented and generous Radiology team will help conservators learn more about the methods used to prepare the historic zebra specimen, acquired by MNH in 1931.

The zebra will undergo restoration this winter to address degradation from light and other environmental factors over time.

Special thanks to both teams, the out of state conservationists who examined images via Zoom, and also to UI Health Care Information Systems for lending a truck to get this equipment across the river! Three cheers for this collaborative, interdisciplinary effort in joint dedication to science!

Also a special shout out to Radiology Manager Kelli Zimmerman for wearing not just *any* mask 😷😂😎

Constitution Day 09/17/2021

Constitution Day

It has long been tradition that U.S. Army Cadets read The Constitution of the United States aloud in front of the Old Capitol on each #USConstitutionDay while passing out hand-held constitutions to passerby's. This year, to honor the historic occasion, U.S. Army Cadets John Delaney, Zachary Osgood, Jonathon Roggatz, and Emmanuel Shott With Two Arrows have recorded a reading of the Constitution and pocket sized copies may be picked up at the @uilibraries.

Our Story

Together, the Old Capitol Museum and the Museum of Natural History form the UI Pentacrest Museums, the university's doorways to discovery in the heart of downtown Iowa City.

For more than 150 years, Old Capitol has represented the pioneering spirit of Iowa and The University of Iowa. The last capitol of the Iowa territory, it served as Iowa's first state capitol from 1846 to 1857. When the state government moved to Des Moines in 1857, Old Capitol served as the University's first building and the founding place of many departments.

The mission of the University of Iowa Museum of Natural History is to inspire in visitors of all ages understanding and a sense of wonder, discovery, respect, and responsibility for our natural and cultural worlds through exhibits, educational programs, and collections, as well as through linkages with UI research and activities. Founded in 1858, the Museum of Natural History is the oldest university museum west of the Mississippi River. We combine exhibits, education resources, programming, collections, and research opportunities to support the University of Iowa and our community.
