Greatest Change

Perhaps from all the songs and the event in the Avatar the Legend of Korra Book 1, the event right in the end of the last episode of Book 1 is the best. Actually I am a fan of the series since the series began from the Avatar the Last Airbender the Legend of Aang. The story of this series offer us another kind of a story to enjoy. Unlike no other story, the story tells a lot about spirituality, and that’s what is so rare for a cartoon. Moreover the story is having Asian background, and many elements of the story are Chinese Asian elements.

Avatar Korra Overlooking the Republic City
Korra Overlooking the Republic City
 The story of the series are actually telling about a person who is having a title as an Avatar. The Avatar is told to be a bridge of two worlds, the spirit world and the physical world. The world is separated long time ago and only the Avatar that can cross to the spirit world from the physical world. The Avatar is having a duty to maintain peace in the two worlds. The Avatar is told to be immortal though a person as an avatar can eventually grow old and died. When an Avatar is died its spirit will reincarnate to another person, the next Avatar.

In the story people can manipulate elements, such ability is called bending. There are four elements that can be bent, i.e.: Fire, Air, Water, and Earth. Normal people can only bend one element but for the Avatar he/she the only one that can bend all four elements, thus this ability will determine whether a person an Avatar or not.

In the story of The Legend of Korra, there’s an Avatar named Korra, a girl. Just like another Avatar she must be trained to become a Fully Realized Avatar. An Avatar needs to be trained to be a Fully Realized Avatar, because an Avatar, though he/she can master all the elements and having great strength, is not having that ability right from the day of its birth. In the case of Korra, as a member of the Water Tribes, she was born the ability of water bending, the only special thing is that she is already able to bend also Fire and Earth since her childhood, which made her parents realized that Korra is the Avatar.

However just like another Avatar, there’s always an element that is so hard to be mastered. Like Avatar Aang, he is from the Air Nomads and his element is Air, and the element that is so hard to be mastered for Aang is Earth. For Korra it is Air, because of Korra is lack connection to spiritual side of the Avatar and bending. In Her training Korra is taught by an airbender named Tenzin, who is a son of the previous Avatar before Korra, which is Aang.

In the Book One of the Legend of Korra, the story tells that there is a rebellious movement in Republic City. The movement is leaded by a person named Amon. Amon is having an ability to remove a bending ability from someone. Such ability is so frightful for many benders because if a bender lost its bending ability he/she might become so powerless, and this what makes Korra so frightened throughout the Book 1. She knows that Amon intends to eradicate bending form the world, it is also means that Amon in the end will take Korra bending ability, since she is the Avatar. When Amon is success in doing that, it means that Amon can rule the world, and Korra will fail to become an Avatar.

And the story goes, in the last episode of Book 1 Korra finally face Amon. There’s a fierce battle between Korra and Amon. However, Amon in the battle Amon manage to take away Korra bending ability but since Korra just only masters 3 elements, and she is not yet able to bend Air, she loose her ability to bend fire, Earth and Water. After Amon manage to take away Korra Bending Ability Amon continues to beat Korra intends to finish her. But a desperate attempt by Korra to punch Amon results in a miraculous things, that Korra can create an air punch to Amon, which means that Korra finally can bend the Air. Then Finally Korra defeat Amon with her airbending ability by punch Amon out of a building and Amon thrown into the sea. After Amon is thrown to the sea his cover is blown and the people and his follower realized that Amon is a conspirator that wants to rule the Republic City and he is also a waterbender, because after he is thrown in to the sea he uses his waterbending ability to come out of the water, and then he flees.

Though Korra can bend the Air however her other bending ability is gone. Therefore, after the battle Korra seeks restoration to her other bending ability, so Korra and the team seek the best healer Katara, a waterbender and also a widow of Aang. From this point actually the event is accompanied with the song titled Greatest Change composed by Jeremy Zuckerman, where it starts with a sad tune to accompany the desperation feels of the story. Though Katara is the best healer, she is unable to restore Korra’s bending ability to Fire, Water and Earth.

Seeing this situation, Korra become desperate and she runs away. Her boyfriend at that time, Mako, tried to comfort Korra saying that shes is the Avatar but Korra in desperation denies it and says that she has failed to be an Avatar, the she left. Korra runs with her animal polar bear dog mate until she arrives on a ledge of an ice cliff. There she weep and her tear drops, then she cries. When she cries a person wearing an airnomad monk outfit appears to her, she thinks that the person is Tenzin. She talks to the person that she wants to be alone. The person soon replies to Korra that Korra called him here. Korra shocked, and she look the person and realized that the person is actually Avatar Aang. 

Avatar Aang said that Korra is finally connected to her spiritual side. Form this point the musich changed from the sad tune to a more serene tune. Korra confused of how she can become connected to the spiritual side since all this time Korra is having difficulty to try to connect to the spiritual side. Then Aang said to Korra with a great statement “When we hit our lowest point, we are open to the Greatest Change”. After that, all the previous Avatar appears and Aang put his hands on Korra, and meditate on Korra. After that Aang and all the previous Avatars disappeared.

Greatest Change - Aang

As Korra opens her eyes with her eyes shining the music changes from a sad tune to a tune that full of spirit. Korra enters into the Avatar State, for the first time since her story began, which also means that Korra now is the Fully Realized Avatar. In the Avatar State Korra now able to bend the four elements, this makes laa her bending recovered. And she returned to her normal state.

The story then continue that Korra recover Lin Beifong’s earthbending ability which was taken by Amon. Thus the Legend of Korra Book 1 ends with Korra as the Fully Realized Avatar. Great Story and also a great inspiration from the the story.

below is the video found on youtube for the event Korra meet Aang and enters into Avatar State.

Saving Time

We save. Store something at a moment in order that we could use it again in the other time. We often save anything that has its value yet we find it of no use in the moment yet we realize its value and in other time in the future we might use it. We Save because we prepare for the uncertain event that might affect our future condition.

Things that we save the most is money, or maybe the others. because in a moment we find our money in hand is exceeding our use at such moment. and in the future we think that we definitely need the money, therefore we save the money. the same goes to the other things, food, clothing, and others.

but there is one thing that we can not save. Time. why we cant save it? because time after it comes it will fly away, therefore no one could ever had an ability or power to save it. we can not, definitely can't, store a moment of time in order to use it in the other moment. Once it come. the it will fly again.

therefore it is wise to use every moment we get, we have, we obtain. once it comes there never be the same time back to us. it maybe a certain condition might come that similar to the flown time we once had, but the last one will be totally different. it is wise to use any moment.

The Seven Wonders of The Ancient World

The Greek conquest in the 4th century BC gave greel travelers access to the civilizations like Egyptians, Persians, and Babylonians. Impressed and captivated by the landmarks and marvels of the various lands, these travelers began to list what they saw. And the best known and earliest list of the wonders came was from a poem by Antipater of Sidon from around 140 BC. He named seven sites on his list:

I have gazed on the walls of impregnable Babylon along which chariots may race, and on the Zeus by the banks of the Alpheus, I have seen the hanging gardens, and the Colossus of the Helios, the great man-made mountains of the lofty pyramids, and the gigantic tomb of Mausolus; but when I saw the sacred house of Artemis that towers to the clouds, the others were placed in the shade, for the sun himself has never looked upon its equal outside Olympus.

— Antipater, Greek Anthology IX.58

And these are the structure in the Antipater’s Poem:

Great Pyramid of Giza

The Great Pyramid of Giza also called the Pyramid of Khufu and the Pyramid of Cheops is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza Necropolis. it is believed to be built as a tomb for Pharaoh Khufu (Cheops). For for over 3,800 years the Great Pyramid was the tallest man-made structure in the world, its height is 146.5 metres (480.6 ft).

Hanging Gardens of Babylon

The Hanging Gardens of Babylon were built in the ancient city of Babylon, present-day Iraq, sometimes called the Hanging Gardens of Semiramis for its references to the legendary Queen Semiramis. The gardens were supposedly built by the king Nebuchadnezzar II of Babylon in around 600 BC. He constructed the gardens to please his wife, Amytis of Media.

Statue of Zeus at Olympia

The Statue of Zeus at Olympia was made by the Greek sculptor Phidias, around 432 BC on the Temple of Zeus, Olympia, Greece. The statue was dedicated to Zeus, the chief God of Greek. The statue was 12 meters (43 feet) tall. The Zeus was made of ivory and gold-plated bronze. In Zeus' right hand there was a small statue of Nike, goddess of victory, and in his left hand a golden scepter.

Temple of Artemis at Ephesus

The Temple of Artemis (Ἀρτεμίσιον, or Artemision/), also known as the Temple of Diana, was a dedicated to the Artemis, the goddess of hunt and the moon. The Tenpel’s was sited at the city of Ephesus (the modern town of Selçuk, Turkey). The temple was rebuilt three times before it was finally destroyed in 401. And today only the foundation remains.

Mausoleum of Maussollos at Halicarnassus

The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus or in other word Tomb of Mausolus (Μαυσωλεῖον τῆς Ἁλικαρνασσοῦ). The tomb was built between 353 and 350 BC at Halicarnassus (present Bodrum, Turkey) for Mausolus, a satrap in the Persian Empire and His wife who was also his sister Artemisia II of Caria. It stood approximately 45 m (148 ft) in height. The word mausoleum itself now comes to be used generically for any grand tomb.

Colossus of Rhodes

The Colossus of Rhodes was a statue of the Greek Titan Helios, the sun Titan. It was built in the city of Rhodes on the Greek island of Rhodes between 292 and 280 BC. It was constructed to celebrate Rhodes' victory over the ruler of Cyprus. Before its destruction, the Colossus of Rhodes stood over 30 meters (107 ft) high, making it one of the tallest statues of the ancient world.

Lighthouse of Alexandria

The Lighthouse of Alexandria, also known as the Pharos of Alexandria (ὁ Φάρος Ἀλεξανδρινóς). its height is around 393 and 450 ft (120 and 140 m). The tower lighthouse built between 280 and 247 BC on the island of Pharos at Alexandria, Egypt with the main purpose for guiding sailors into the harbour at night.

Beside these seven landmarks, Antipater also listed The Gate of Isthar in Babylon into the list, before he finally changed it with the Lighthouse of Alexandria. And from these seven landmarks only the Great Pyramid of Giza still remain nowday, the other six were already destroyed and leaving only the remnants like the temple of Artemis.

The seven wonders became a term for the list of magnificent landmarks or structures throughout the globe and ages. And even in the next era, with the coming of renaissance era and industrial era many structures was also erected and built, thus making a new list of the Seven Wonders in the Era.
