"He brings the wind out of His treasuries." (10:13)
Whenever I read this verse, I ponder on how valuable the wind is that it is kept in "His treasuries". Have you ever wondered what our world would be like without the wind?
- no atmosphere
- no pressure differentials
The first case is trivial. But what about the second case?
It is hard to envision a situation in which wind would not be a factor. One such scenario might be to construct giant arcologies, which segmented the air into separate smaller blocks and so discouraged long-range concerted behavior from piling up large differentials such as experienced in hurricanes or other low pressure cyclones.
The other case would be no heat- the sun is cold, the planet is frozen. But that would likely also mean no air as well, since it would condense.
Life without wind seems pretty bleak." Matt Harbowy,
