Beauty of the World around

Taking a careful look at the picture above, you'll find a bird's nest on the tree.
This nest belongs to the pair of pigeons which came to live with us in the courtyard since a couple of weeks ago... It was not until a few days ago when we got honored to realize that they're expecting a baby :D It is indescribable how compassionately they care about their only one egg ! My observations have revealed that the male pigeon sits on the egg from early in the morning till around 4 pm while the female finds some time to go and find food for her. Then she gets back and they change places ! She sits on the egg the whole time till the next morning ! ( My father taught me how to distinguish between the male and female;) )

There's such glory in the nature that plays with our eyes while staring at it! ...and right after that we'll reach to the point that How great the creator of all these luxurious stuff must be !

I am quite a lot interested in learning from nature. This interest is so much that I'm even trying a lot to make a connection between my field of study and the nature. And to my happiness, they weren't as apart as I thought they could be. There are algorithms directly inspired from nature rules. Many artificial intelligence subjects have originated basically from learning from nature. Nice enough , we have a cool realm of science called "Bio-inspired computing".
When I think of these beautiful aspects of my field, I start realizing the fact that no other major field would fulfill my eagerness towards engineering and biology, this perfectly !
I was not aware of the correctness of the choice of my field once I chose it and now it's about time to bestow a BIG thank upon the lord who assured me of that when I was uncertain !

So nice Mahsa! 8->
It is my question too!how do you distinguish between the male and female? :-?
( I think you should say "him" in the end of line 7! so I think you cant distinguish between the male and female! :P )

Mahsa Mohammadi said...

:D nope Zahra !!!
the pronoun used in that line is correct :D .it refers to the female pigeon who gets back to the nest to sit on the egg for the rest of the day till the next day !!

actually it was my father who explained to me which pigeon is which :P I don't know it very much in detail but in our case as i remember, the male pigeon is more beautiful !! ( opposite of what happens in human :P :P :P )he has some nice spots on his chest !! they're such lovely couple :D

زهرا طاهری said...

I still think you are wrong!:P
thanks for your explanation ;)

As I can see you observed a couple of pigeons life in an unbelievable detail.
As I know the main idea in all of the sciences and technologies which has been developed by human beings is to reach natural patterns which can be find in nature.
I can see now a brilliant future for "Bio-inspired computing" and I hope all of the creatures in the world can take the advantages of your studies in that field.

really encouraging :)
Thank you !

1. It was not until a few days ago that we felt honored(were surprised) by realizing that they're expecting a baby.

2. I guess that we should use compassion just for people.

3. while the female gets some time to go and find some food for herself

4. how to distinguish between the male and the female

5. and right after that, we reach the point that we figure out how great the creator of all this luxurious stuff is.

6. There are algorithms directly concluded/inferred/deduced (not inspired) from nature rules.

7. Many artificial intelligence subjects are based on learning from nature.

8. I start realizing the fact that no other major/field would fulfill my eager for engineering and biology, this perfectly/perfect

9. I was not sure if the decision I made about my field was correct once I made it.

10. To bestow a big thank upon the lord...

PS. "/" means logical OR
