Rumble Why is nature so beautiful? Why does a short walk amidst nature have such a calming influence on our mind? Why does the sight of flowers, butterflies, rainbows and animals fill our hearts with joy unspeakable? While evolution and science can explain many facts of our daily existence, the answer to this profound puzzle lies a little beyond the reaches of present day science, and in the realms of the super-conscious. Nature is beautiful because it is a manifestation of everything that is fervently pulsating with life on this planet. In the midst of nature, our minds become calm because we feel the pull of this joyful cosmic consciousness.

Although many people have been advocating an approach to nature based on its intelligibility, we are far from tying down the giant that is nature with our minds. Emerson writes that the perception of the inexhaustibly of nature is an immortal youth. Although we shall continue to try to uncover nature’s secrets, let us also continue to take pleasure in our immediate encounter with it. Let us continue to be awe-struck, like the child on the seashore, or clambering up a tree. Let us hold onto that experience, and fight for the environment that makes it possible, both for the child in each of us, and for those that come after us.

We all know the purpose of camo. In practice, this means applying color and materials to military equipment of all kinds, either to conceal its wearer from observation, or to make it appear as something else. Camo pattern clothing was a huge hit with civilians at the beginning of the 21st century, so big that is actually had a come back some ten years later!

But camo isn’t just for the armed forces - hunters and wildlife observers use it too and to prove just how good camo can be, we bring you this incredibly amusing clip!

A man showed off his incredible camouflage skills by standing dead still as a large group of elk simply circled just FEET AWAY. In the footage, Chris Burandt can be seen pressed tightly against a tree as the oblivious elk move right around him.

At one point, one of the elk moves to within touching distance of Chris’ right arm, but the adventurer remains dead still, so as not to scare the animal. But something cracks in the distance, making the female elk all scatter into the distance. Then the 39-year-old from Buena Vista in Colorado turns to his buddy rolling from the back with a huge grin on his face! He later said that there were 12 elk in total. Dude!
