Life Measurement – Years? or Breathes?

Life is a watch as much as the key God moves [Hindi translation जीवन एक घडी है जितनी चाबी भरी भगवन ने उतनी ही चलती है]. An average man lives around 70 years and during his life time his breaths and heart beats are limited. A man lives more or less his quota of beats and breathes unless he dies accidentally.

This principle is applicable to all living being on the earth. The life expectancy as we see today depends on lot of other parameters such as lifestyle, pollution, eating habits, immunity, exercise levels, exercise types.

Two oxygen atoms were walking along the street when one stops and says, “Oh my goodness, I feel more radical. I think I’ve lost an electron!” “Are you sure?” asks his companion. “Yes,” replies the first oxygen atom. “I’m positive.”
Old chemistry joke

As we know, Oxygen oxidizes every thing metal, non-metal. Rusting of metal is a well-known example of oxidation. Oxygen is reactive to almost every element.  Our body also oxidizes. Our body is made of power plants called mitochondria which burns Oxygen and fats to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP).  ATP is kindly of charged battery which supplies energy for most cellular activities. 

Mitochondria processes one atom of Oxygen and two hydrogen atoms and forms water molecule during this chemical process. In this process, toxics (pollutants) are generated called free radicals

Free radicals are unstable atoms which have lost their atoms in the process of chemical process tries to restore their initial state by stealing atoms from adjacent cells and thus destablizing the entire chain.  Over production of free radicals can damage cells, causing illness and aging. 

An average man takes around 74 Crores (740 Million) of breathes during his life span of 70 years (avg). During this time his heart beats 300 Crores times (3 Billion) 4 times more than the breathes he takes.

Following table gives a fair estimate of how beats and breathes are observed by other species of living beings

We observed that there is no correlation between weight and age of a species in terms of years.  However, we noticed that the number of breath and beat is higher than human being in case of animal species living lesser number of years.  Now we will see the numbers of heart beats and breaths by a species during its life time (on an average)


We saw total breaths ranges from 74 Crores (Human) to 16 Crores (cats and dogs).   in their respective life span.

breaths per year

In the table on left, we observed that on an average all species take 1 Crores breaths per year. The intent to of this table is not to establish life expectancy, but to establish correlation between life and breaths.

The breath rate per year amongst man, cows, cats and dogs are in the similar range of breaths per year i.e. 1.00-1.25 crores.  Please observe that all species have lived together for ages.  Man domesticates cows, dogs and cats.  Is this the reason? More scientific studies should be carried out.

Chicken takes 3.85 Crores breaths while Monkey takes 2.23 Crores breaths per year.  

Tortoise, Elephant, Camel, Pig are in the range of 0.21 – 0.74 Crores breaths per year.  We saw higher the breath rate lower the life expectancy in terms of years.

Did you notice? Whale the heaviest mammel on earth, takes about only 10 thousand breaths in an year and still survives 80 years of its average life.
This is despite the fact that water consists only 1% oxygen as against 21% oxygen in the air. Isn’t this astonishing that Whale takes 1000 times less breathes than human beings and that too in water which oxygen is further 20 times lesser. So by taking 20,000 lesser oxygen whale is capable of surviving a life span equal to human being

We saw more oxygen per minute is actually oxidising and reducing our life span.  By controlling our breaths we can control and limit damage by oxygen. In Ancient time, Sages use to live 1000 years. They use to do meditation and samadhi in clean pollution free environment.  They probably trained their breathing technique to extend their life span.  A video by Yog Guru Baba Ramdev is worth watching for beginners (ailing people particularly with breathing problem should consult their doctors before training breathing techniques)

By limiting oxygen consumption we can actually live stronger, healthier, radical free, youthful life till eternity.



An Earth Letter to Human !

THINK while we take a break!!

As #COVID__19 is to Human; Human are to Nature
Think of Nature was to find vaccine for itself of infestation by us ‘The Human Being’.

EARTH letter to Human👇

With 8 Billion, and still counting, you have caused severe damage to me.

#Deforestation has been major cause of disturbing my other family members animal. What if you were to live alone without Animals and Vegetation? You have shaved 3.9 million square miles (10 million Sq KM) of forest since start of 20th Century



#GlobalWarming has caused Glaciers been receding since 18000 BC. However, rate of depletion has increased alarmingly since Industrial revolution.
Ancient Dwarka Nagari was once an occupied place submerged into water. You must think again before it engulfs more land

Animals you eat have already outweighed the total weight of wild animal for your #NonVegetarian habits.
You bred them to satisfy your buds. Another cause of increase in green house effect.

How do I warn you of the pain I am suffering. You don;t understand my language. Hurricanes, Wild Fire, Rain deficit, floods. This is only a sign language I know


Now that we are taking a break. Choose your choices.

You can chose to cure my deeper sickness.

By protecting wild and wonderful form, you protect yourself.

What Future do you choose?

Sounds of the Sun

[Original story taken from

Data from ESA (European Space Agency) and NASA’s Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) has captured the dynamic movement of the Sun’s atmosphere for over 20 years. Today, we can hear the Sun’s movement — all of its waves, loops and eruptions — with our own ears.

This sound helps scientists study what can’t be observed with the naked eye.

“Waves are traveling and bouncing around inside the Sun, and if your eyes were sensitive enough they could actually see this,” said Alex Young, associate director for science in the Heliophysics Science Division at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.

The Sun is not silent. The low, pulsing hum of our star’s heartbeat allows scientists to peer inside, revealing huge rivers of solar material flowing around before their eyes — er, ears. NASA heliophysicist Alex Young explains how this simple sound connects us with the Sun and all the other stars in the universe. This piece features low frequency sounds of the Sun.

Data from SOHO, sonified by the Stanford Experimental Physics Lab, captures the Sun’s natural vibrations and provides scientists with a concrete representation of its dynamic movements.

“We don’t have straightforward ways to look inside the Sun. We don’t have a microscope to zoom inside the Sun,” Young said. “So using a star or the Sun’s vibrations allows us to see inside of it.”

These are solar sounds generated from 40 days of the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory’s (SOHO) Michelson Doppler Imager (MDI) data and processed by A. Kosovichev. The procedure he used for generating these sounds was the following. He started with doppler velocity data, averaged over the solar disk, so that only modes of low angular degree (l = 0, 1, 2) remained. Subsequent processing removed the spacecraft motion effects, instrument tuning, and some spurious points. Then Kosovichev filtered the data at about 3 mHz to select clean sound waves (and not supergranulation and instrumental noise). Finally, he interpolated over the missing data and scaled the data (speeded it up a factor 42,000 to bring it into the audible human-hearing range (kHz)).

These vibrations allow scientists to study a range of complex motions inside the Sun, from solar flares to coronal mass ejections.

“We can see huge rivers of solar material flowing around. We are finally starting to understand the layers of the Sun and the complexity,” Young said. “That simple sound is giving us a probe inside of a star. I think that’s a pretty cool thing.”

The sounds of the Sun are on display at the NASA Goddard Visitor Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. An immersive art installation, called Solarium, uses vivid imagery and sonification to transport listeners to the heart of our solar system.
