For instance, what an African person may consider as morals may mean something totally different in another part of the world. It may even be a total disgrace to those other people. However, this fact should not...
Space, the final frontier, is an unimaginably vast area. We have many questions about space, such as: how was it really formed? How large is space? What happens if you reach the end of space? Is there another planet in a far off solar system capable of supporting humans? What does dark matter consist of?

In the Yoga Sutras, Patanjali prescribes adherence to eight "limbs" or steps (the sum of which constitute "Ashtanga Yoga", the title of the second chapter) to quiet one's mind and achieve kaivalya. The Yoga...

As with any widely discussed and complicated issue, there is a large amount of confusion and misunderstanding surrounding the terms used within the debate.
