All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

(Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Burmese)

No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.

Article 9:

Those who have the kindness of benefit for others

For the sake of living beings, do not relax their powers.

Though these holy beings bear a heavy burden,

They never put it down and dwell in discouragement.

*the Great Chariot Sutra*

Burma is known as a golden land made of several ranges (or ‘Yoma’ in Burmese) where thousands of tribal memories, wisdoms, religions, cultures and beauties of plants and animals dwell. The rivers, all of them are indeed important to the people and other existences, snake through these beautiful mountainous regions and flow from the north to the south where Indian Ocean is. The peoples, Burma has 103 ethnics, all of them used to be really generous and all they knew was to give.

Since the modern day’s dictators have systematically destroyed, now the golden land is famous for its narcotic trades, refugees, migrant workers and various atrocities and sufferings.

One day, we’ll be free again and the land will be again famous for its beauty.

Fire in Space

"Thus far, the most surprising thing we've observed is continued apparent burning of heptane droplets after flame extinction under certain conditions," Williams said. "Currently, this is entirely unexplained."

As we're certain that space is not empty, there could be fire sources in it other than dark matters. We know there are different types of dusts in space - one of them can be anything as fire particles. 


If the inside of the International Space Station is clean and no such penetration of such dusts could happen, or at least they must not exist that much inside the space station to burn that way, then there must be very small particles that can penetrate steels and feed the flame. 


I think it's as simple as that - the flame was kept by some type of fire source. By seeing the flame, we must be convinced that there is fire - in space waiting for fuel. But it seems the particles are so weak to start a fire of their own - but it must be because ethanol and heptane are not found in space naturally.  


Then what about other types of fuel which are not oil or gas but carbon - e.g. charcoal? 


Are these unknown particles (sort of a type of) dark matters? Another 21st century question!


Stars could be fed with these unknown  particles. Once I read the core of comet was heated and some chemical reactions where happening. Are these particles responsible for that heat in that comet? And newly hatched stars too? Yeah! Must be!!!! 


The quote above mentions - 'even after the flame was extinguished the fuel kept burning' - does it mean fire somehow can penetrate the steel cover that was supposed to stop the flame? 


Space flames can also burn at a lower temperature and with less oxygen than fires on Earth. 
What if the fuel burns without oxygen at all? Maybe not! So the law of fire is not changed - fire needs oxygen to burn. 


But I wonder what if the fire gets some kind of gases that react as extinguisher? If fire in space can be extinguished with nitrogen or whatever, we could assume a reason why the earth is not too hot and supporting life.
