”The problem involved is too vast for our limited minds. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn’t know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God. We see the universe marvelously arranged and obeying certain laws but only dimly understand these laws.”
if we are not too scientific, we are too straightforward to be fascinated
pareidolia may have helped early societies organize chaos and make the world intelligible for our ancestors.

Pareidolia is a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus (often an image or sound) being perceived as significant. Common examples include seeing images of animals or faces in clouds, the man in the moon, and hearing hidden messages on records played in reverse.
-Carl Sagan hypothesized that as a survival technique, human beings are “hard-wired” from birth to identify the human face. This allows people to use only minimal details to recognize faces from a distance and in poor visibility but can also lead them to interpret random images or patterns of light and shade as being faces.

The Arab al-Jahalin is the biggest bedouin community that lives in the desert between Jerusalem and Jericho. This part of the West Bank is called Area C, where Israel retains control over security as well as planning and zoning, and holds strategic significance for further expansion of illegal Israeli settlements. The bedouins live in miserable shacks, without electricity or running water, grazing their sheeps between debris and dreaming of the flourishing desert of Beersheva, where theyíve been forcefully evicted, across the 1949 armistice lines by Israeli authorities.
In the last 15 years the Bedouin communities have been subject to demolition, requisition of cattle, attacks by settlers, aimed to get away from the area. But despite this, the communities have shown determination and unbelievable resilience, who led the Israeli military authorities to draw up a “relocation” plan, presented last October. Ignoring the aspirations, needs, traditions and the system of relations inherent in the Bedouin culture, the plan provides the deportation and a forced establishment of the Jahalin tribe next to the Abu Dis rubbish dump. For other Bedouins living in the Jordan Valley is expected a similar fate, with the creation of a complex near Nabi Musa.

Conventional section & text following
“This project is based on two kinds of elements and their respective mutations. The white elements, which combine to form both the soft curvilinear and the hard straight body. They are the main structure and first layer of the enclosure. The black elements are more of an organic nature and work as the second layer of enclosure on the outside and as floors inside. The contrast and transition between these elements give the project its unique character.
The circulations of the tourists and pilgrims are separated. At the same time, different interior space for these 2 groups of people are created. The main Nave is on the top of the building and a bigger entrance square is created for the ceremonys during the year. The program inside the nave stays within the range a classic gothic cathedral offers, but the way how people enter the space and how the vision and visual impression changes when people move inside the cathedral becomes much more dynamic.”
