"As time vanished, the days grew longer, and each shot became a realisation of reality, pushing the target even further away: That life is for single-players."
My current situation is very complex. I'm waiting. Constantly waiting for the society to act and give me the help and support I need. Each day is the same. I'm keeping myself busy writing and shooting, but it's hard reaching any goal when you're all by yourself. Each day makes it harder; to leave home and be surrounded by people. I feel isolated, disconnected.
I like being alone. But besides spending two months at gymnasium school this summer, I've been doing just about nothing the last two years of my life. Not many people at my age can tell the same story where I come from. Now I'm just waiting for things to happen while trying to reach an almost impossible goal all by myself. But society seems to have other things to tend to. They're damn lucky that I'm a patient woman. ~
Todos estos puentes se creen que son de origen romano pero modificados o incluso vueltos a construir en la época medieval.
1. Puente de Castrelos (22 metros), en pleno centro de Vigo.
2. Puente de Sárdoma (10 metros), en los alrededores del centro, cruza el mismo río que el anterior y es usado como paso peatonal.
3. Puente Románico de la Ramallosa (36 metros) ubicado en Baiona, el más impresionante de los 3 además de ser el más grande, es el que más recuerda a un puente romano y seria perfecto de no ser por los arcos centrales que parecen ser los de un puente gótico. A su lado está el puente actual que soporta el tráfico de vehículos que es incluso más grande pero ambos igual de imponentes.
Invincible armada or Great and most glorious armada - a large military fleet (about 130 ships), assembled by Spain in the years 1586-1588 for invading England during the Anglo-Spanish war (1585-1604). The march of Armada took place in May-September 1588 under the command of Alonso Perez de Guzmán, Duke of Medina-Sidonia.
The invincible armada was battered by the Anglo-Dutch fleet of light and maneuverable ships, commanded by Charles Howard, in a series of battles that ended with the Battle of Gravelino. managed to regroup and went north, refusing to invade, with the English fleet following it at some distance, going along the east coast of England. Returning to Spain was difficult: the Armada went through the North Atlantic, eh the west coast of ireland.
As a result of strong storms, many ships were thrown onto the north and west coasts of this island. During the expedition more than 60 ships were lost (and only 7 of them were battle losses).
The grandiose plan ended in a complete and categorical collapse. The defeat of the armada was not the final ending of the Spanish power and domination of the sea. But being unable to defeat the enemy with a single effort, the Spaniards were forced to join the exhausting sea race. were many times less than the cost of an armada, but in terms of the total amount of money spent on the protection of communications, it was more. Instead of intensive development of the metropolis and colonies in economically, construction of fortresses and improved galleons began. #history#historic#middleage#medieval#middleages#kingdom#knight#glory#honor
Hi all! For all my new followers, I would like to inform you that my very first posts consist of what the medieval philosophy was like leading to the great Scholastic Philosopher Thomas Aquinas. In this regard, I focused on what historian of philosophy Frederick Copleston called the constructive synthesis phase (13th century). As a quick reminder, the medievals thought very carefully of what was the relationship between faith and reason. If you are interested, please read post Origins II, Albert, Bonaventure’s distinction, and Medieval thought considered philosophy. I can also make the next post about it if their is enough interest.
For Aquinas, philosophy begins with the immediate sensible objects and reasons upward to more abstract concepts until, at least for Aristotle, the mind fastens upon the highest principles of first cause. This ends in the conception of God. On the other hand, theology begins with faith in God and interprets everything as creatures of God. Again, philosophy draws conclusions from rational descriptions of things while in theology conclusions rest upon revealed knowledge. More clearly, theology deals with what man needs to know for his salvation and not all knowledge of philosophy can help a Christian to that end. In relation to this, theology has knowledge which in itself can only be revealed. Some knowledge from theology cannot be found through natural reason alone. They were revealed in order that man can know his way towards union with God. Wherever reason is capable of knowing something, strictly speaking, faith is unnecessary and what faith uniquely knows through revelation cannot be found through natural reason. Philosophy can infer God exist but cannot understand His essential nature.
