Sculptor Spends 2 Years To Build Knife Angel Out Of 100,000 Weapons, However Government Rejects It

There’s a giant 26-foot-tall Knife Angel sculpture in the UK, constructed entirely out of 100,000 knives that were donated. But besides the remarkable numbers, it’s also a monument constructed out of dire necessity to remember the victims fallen to the rising knife violence in the United Kingdom and also to finally admit that there’s really a problem.

The angel’s founder, Alfie Radley, has spent two years designing and building the sculpture that features authorities donated knives that were actually utilized in violent crimes all over England and Wales, some of which even have the names of the victims engraved onto the blades. The rest arrived thanks to the aid of British Ironwork Centre in Shropshire, which initiated an amnesty program “Save a Life, Surrender Your Knife,” through which individuals can anonymously contribute their knives to the project.

 臨死体験は、英語で「Near Death Experience」と言う。死を現実的なものとして知覚したときによく起こる深い心理的現象だ。

 新たな研究によって、仏教徒の瞑想家の中には臨死体験を意図的に引き起こすことのできる人がいることがわかった。

 瞑想を行って死をより良く理解することは、仏教では長年行われてきたことだ。臨死に至るプロセスの準備をし、その洞察を得る精神的実行者の助けを目的とした古文書も存在する。

 意図的に臨死体験を作り出せる高僧を研究することで、これまでわからないことが多かった臨死状態に関する研究が進むと期待されている。

These Amazing Pics Show Impressive Beards Of The 19th Century Men You Rarely See Today

The early 1800s saw a trend for side-whiskers, which became extremely popular – so popular, in fact, that some canny traders began to peddle false whiskers to men who wanted an instant fix. In the 1840s, spurred on by the successes of British cavalry soldiers in the field, men began to grow moustaches in imitation of these new, ‘ultra-masculine’ heroes. But it was the period from the...
