The Stunning Beauty of Islamic Geometric Patterns

Creative people always want to find something interesting that would challenge them and interests them in life. If they happen to find their interest in art, it translates not only into art, but it also serves a higher purpose in connecting the viewer to consciousness. When there is a need to describe the idea or the logic behind an art form, we almost always need help from geometry.

Humans are capable of looking at the world in different ways. People with different training have different perspectives, and they look at the world in many different ways. The painter looks at the world in a certain way, the poet looks at in a different way, the novelist looks at it in another way. For instance, Picasso looked at the world and saw things in ways we could not. He looked at the world and then abstracted it, very much like a mathematician.

Eid, Hajj & the 10th century Priest who wrote the only known health guide for pilgrims to Mecc

Qusta Ibn Luqa (820–912), a Christian Priest, discussed the best regime for his fellow Muslim travellers to the Hajj and the diseases which may befall them and their treatment.

A emoção tem uma influência substancial nos processos cognitivos










A emoção tem uma influência substancial nos processos cognitivos, incluindo percepção, atenção, aprendizado, memória, raciocínio e solução de problemas. A emoção tem uma influência particularmente forte na atenção, especialmente modulando sua seletividade, bem como motivando a ação e o comportamento. Esse controle atencional e executivo está intimamente ligado aos processos de aprendizagem, uma vez que as capacidades atencionais intrinsecamente limitadas estão mais focadas nas informações relevantes. A emoção também facilita a codificação e ajuda a recuperar as informações com eficiência.
