46) Tupolev Tu-95 is a large, four-engine turboprop-powered strategic bomber
and missile platform. First flown in 1952, Tu-95 entered service with Soviet Union
in 1956 and is expected to serve the Russian Air Force until at least 2040. Over 500
were produced from 1952-1994. The Tu-95 is one of the loudest military aircraft,
purportedly because the tips of the propeller blades move faster than the speed
of sound. Two Russian Bear-H bombers Tu-95 capable of carrying nuclear weapons—
flew over the western Pacific island of Guam just hours before President Obama's
state of the union address (2013) and were intercepted by Air Force F-15 jets.

47) T95 was an American prototype medium tank developed from 1955 to 1959.
These tanks used many advanced features, such as siliceous-cored armor,
a new transmission, and the OPTAC fire-control system. The T95 tank was
created using a traditional design with a driver in the front, the fighting
compartment in the center, and the engine compartment in the rear.
The tank had a four-man crew, consisting of a commander, a gunner,
a loader, and a driver. Weight=38.2 tons; Length=10.18 meters;
Width=3.15 meters; Height=2.85 meters; Speed=56 km/hr.
48) T-95 is the common informal designation of a Russian 4th generation tank
that was under development at Uralvagonzavod before being cancelled
in May 2010. The project was first reported in 1995 and announced by
Russian official sources in 2000, but no concrete data had been released.
It was due to be introduced in 2009, but was repeatedly delayed. Tank
was designed with crew of 3; weight=55 tons; speed=80 km/hr.
49) Santa Fe Locomotive 95 began life in December 1967 as Santa Fe 105,
running Los Angeles to Chicago streamliners routes. In May 1990
to avoid conflicting with the new 100-class GP60M's, the unit was
renumbered again to ATSF 95, and managed to hang on to that
designation for the remainder of its career. In July 1998, the unit
suffered a cracked engine block and was sidelined for good.
Santa Fe 95 Locomotive is preserved at the Western America

57) At Age 95:
Teiichi Igarashi (born 9-21-1886, died ?)— Just inside the front
entrance of the Gogoen Rest House at the Fuji Subaru Line
5th Station, there is a bronze statue erected in honor of Teiichi
Igarashi who on August 8, 1988 scaled Mount Fuji at age of 105.

Fukushima who started climbing Japan's tallest peak annually in
1976 in memory of his deceased wife. So at the time of his feat in
1988, he already held record as oldest person to reach Mt. Fuji's
summit & had renewed his record for 13 years in a row. Igarashi
climbed the 12,385-foot summit in 1982 at age 95. News Archive:
"100-Year-Old Conquers Mount Fuji" (Associated Press, 8-2-1987).
Cellist Pablo Casals (1876-1973) comments: "Age is a relative matter.
If you continue to work and absorb the beauty of the world about you,
you find that age does not necessarily mean getting old. At least, not
in the ordinary sense. I feel many things more intensely than ever before,
and for me life grows more fascinating." Casals dies at 96 (1993). At 81,
he had married Marta Montanez (20), and they went on to develop the
Casals Festival. At age 85, Casals was invited to the White House by
President John F. Kennedy (November 13, 1961) where he charmed
with his virtuso performance on the cello (Recording: 1, 2).

Woodblock Print #95 from 100 Views of Edo
"The Tone River and Goose Hill"
by Ando Hiroshige (1797-1858), Brooklyn Museum
Hiroshige's Woodblock #95 inspired this haiku:
    Pine trees on the cliff,
    sailboats cruise the river,
    in the distance— Mt. Fuji!
From heights of Könodai, a site fortified by a series of military barons in the
medieval period, Mount Fuji is clearly prominent in the distance. This long bluff
along eastern side of the Tone, now the Edogawa River is the first high ground of
any sort east of the Sumida River, allowing an uninterrupted panorama to the
southwest over the seven-mile interval of flat delta area stretching out to Fuji.
    On an autumn day looking at three figures on a long bluff on the eastern side
of the Edogawa River and a view of Mt. Fuji at the right. This cliff served as a
regional military center from early times and was the location of the capital of
Shimoosa Province in ancient Japan when it was given the name of Kofufu no Dai,
"Provincial Capital Bluff," shortened to Konodai. This fortified site was crushed
by the Hojo of Odawara in a battle in 1564. Konodai has been best known for its
role in Takizawa Bakin's epic novel "Biographies of the Eight Dogs" (1814-1841).

composed in Leipzig for 16th Sunday after Trinity and first performed on 12 September 1723.
The prescribed readings for the Sunday were from the Epistle to the Ephesians, praying for
the strengthening of faith in the congregation of Ephesus (Ephesians 3:13-21), and from the
Gospel of Luke, raising from the dead of the Young man from Nain (Luke 7:11-17). The cantata
in seven movements is scored for three vocal soloists (soprano, tenor and bass), a four-part
choir, horn, two oboe d'amore, two violins, viola, violoncello piccolo and basso continuo.

Story follows Gregory on his journey through school and life. Gregory is having a pretty
rough go of it. He is not doing well in school. He has been held back twice— once in the
3rd grade and a second time in 6th grade. His parents constantly fight and argue with
each other and with him. They tell him that he and his bad grades and lack of determination
are the reason they fight and yell all the time. And on top of all that, doctors have diagnosed
him with ADD. But Gregory has a talent. He can build just about anything he sets his mind to.
His favorite place in the world is in Grandpa Leon's workshop.

a half into the air. (Film Reviews: IMDB; SchoolTube); (YouTube: 1, 2, 3).

For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.
The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.
O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.

And heavy shall its yoke be upon you.

110) Hymn 95 in Book 1 of the Rig Veda is a song of praise to Agni, the God of Fire:
Who of you knows this secret One? The Infant by his own nature hath brought forth his Mothers.
The germ of many, from the waters' bosom he goes forth, wise and great, of Godlike nature.
Visible, fair, he grows in native brightness uplifted in the lap of waving waters.
He makes him a most noble form of splendour, decking him in his home with milk and waters.
The Sage adorns the depths of air with wisdom: this is the meeting where the Gods are worshipped.
Wide through the firmament spreads forth triumphant the far-resplendent strength of thee the Mighty.
Kindled by us do thou preserve us, Agni, with all thy self-bright undiminished succours.
Fed with our fuel, purifying Agni, so blaze to us auspiciously for glory.

Rig Veda Book 1, 95.4-5, 8-9, 11 (circa 1500 B.C.)

He who is unperturbed like the earth, who is steadfast like Indra's post

115) 95th Trigraph of the Ling Ch'i Ching: Pi Shih / Shuning the World
The image of hiding far away
Insulting yang with yin
The menial realize their ambitions,
the perfected lose their Tao.
Abandoning my thatched house,
I enter the marshy grasses.

The imperial carriage has departed from the vermillion steps,
Mountain finches have soared into the blue sky.
Perverse ministers increasingly usurp official position,
Worthy individuals find it advantageous to hide and flee.

—Tung-fang Shuo,
Ling Ch'i Ching (circa 222-419)
(trans. Ralph D. Sawyer & Mei-Chün Lee Sawyer, 1995, p. 220)
116) Text 95 of On Prayer: 153 Texts
of Evagrios the Solitary (345-399 AD)
You should be aware of this trick: at times the demons split into two groups; and when
you call for help against one group, the other will come in the guise of angels and drive
away the first, so that you are deceived into believing that they are truly angels.

118) Text 95 of On Watchfulness and Holiness
of Saint Hesychios the Priest (circa 7th century AD)
The unremitting remembrance of death is a powerful trainer of body and soul. Vaulting
over all that lies between ourselves and death, we should always visualize it, and even
the very bed on which we shall breathe our last, and everything else connected with it.

of Saint Diadochos of Photiki (400-486 AD)
Humility is hard to acquire, and the deeper it is, the greater the struggle needed to gain it.
There are two different ways in which it comes to those who share in divine knowledge.
In the case of one who has advanced halfway along the path of spiritual experience,
his self-will is humbled either by bodily weakness, or by people gratuitously hostile
to those pursuing righteousness, or by evil thoughts. But when the intellect fully and
consciously senses the illumination of God's grace, the soul possesses a humility which
is, as it were, natural. Wholly filled with divine blessedness, it can no longer be puffed up
with its own glory; for even if it carries out God's commandments ceaselessly, it still considers
itself more humble than all other souls because it shares His forbearance. The first type of humility
is usually marked by remorse and despondency, the second by joy and an enlightened reverence.
Hence, the first is found in those half-way along the spiritual path, while the second is given
to those nearmg perfection. That is why the first is often undermined by material prosperity,
while the second, even if offered all the kingdoms of this world, is not elated and is proof
against the arrows of sin. Being wholly spiritual, it is completely indifferent to all material
glory. We cannot acquire the second without having passed through the first; for unless
God's grace begins by softening our will by means of the first, testing it through assaults
of the passions, we cannot receive the riches of the second.

120) Text 95 of For the Encouragement of the Monks in India who had Written to Him: 100 Texts
of Saint John of Karpathos (circa 680 AD)
When there is no wind blowing at sea, there are no waves; and when no
demons dwells within us, our soul and body are troubled by the passions.

121) Text 95 of On the Character of Men: 170 Texts
of Saint Anthony of Egypt (251-356 AD)
When the soul is in the body it is at once darkened and ravaged by pain
and pleasure. Pain and pleasure are like the humours of the body. But
the intellect that enjoys the love of God, counter-attacking, gives pain
to the body & saves the soul, like a physician who cuts & cauterizes bodies.

123) Chapter 95 of Mohammed's Holy Koran is titled "The Fig"
I swear by the fig and the olive,
And mount Sinai,
And this city made secure,
Certainly We created man in the best make.
Then We render him the lowest of the low.
Except those who believe and do good, so they shall have a reward never to be cut off.
Then who can give you the lie after (this) about the judgment?
Is not Allah the best of the Judges?

128) Case 95 of Hekiganroku: Chokei and Hofuku Discuss the Buddha's Words
Main Subject: Chokei one day said, "Even if you say that the Arhats still
have three poisons, you should not say that the Buddha has two languages.
I do not say that the Buddha has no language but that he does not have two languages."
Hofuku said, "What is the Buddha's language?"
Chokei said, "How can a deaf person hear it?"
Hofuku said, "I know you are speaking from a secondary principle."
Chokei said, "What is the Buddha's language?"
Hofuku said, "Have a cup of tea."

Setcho's Verse:
Who speaks from the first, who from the second principle?
Dragons do not lie in puddles;
Where dragons lurk,
Waves arise when no wind blows.

Section 95 of Wang Yang Ming's Instructions for Practical Living:
I asked, "To hold the will firm is like having a pain in the heart.
As the whole mind is concentrated on the pain, how can there be time
for idle talk or being a busybody?"
The Teacher said: “This is good as an initial effort.
But the student must be made to understand that the spiritual
intelligence of the mind comes in and goes out at no definite time
and without anyone's knowing its direction, and that it is originally
this way. Only in this way can one'e effort find a solution. If one merely
holds his will rigidly, I am afraid his effort will encounter trouble.”

131) 95th Section of Swedenborg's Worlds in Space (1758):
The stone bird was also a representation of the inhabitants of that world [Mars]
who in a strange manner transform the thoughts and affections of their life into
one which hardly exists... I was informed by angels that they were spirits from
the world of Mars, who possessed the trick of talking among themselves without
the other spirits present understanding or perceiving anything... they express
by means of the lips and face, so that others cannot understand them... But
although they fancy that their conversations among themselves are not intelligible
to others, still angelic spirits perceive all the details of their conversations
This is because not all the thoughts behind them can be withdrawn.
Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772), The Worlds in Space, 95
(translated from Latin by John Chadwick, Swedenborg Society, London, 1997, pp. 67-70)
132) Chapter 95 of Wei Wu Wei's Ask the Awakened (1963) is titled "Inseeing":
It is often said that see-er, see-ing, and seen, or experiencer, experiencing,
and experiment, are one: this may, in a colloquial sense, be so. But it is also
said that there is no see-ing without a see-er, no experience (experiencing
or experiment) without an experiencer: this, however, is not so.
    As far as I happen to know, only Krishnamurti sems to have expressed
this correctly. Without a see-ing, an experiencing, there can be no see-er,
no experiencer. Neither before nor after a see-ing, an experiencing, is there
a see-er. am experience-er. The latter is produced in order to explain, or to
justify, the phenomenon. In fact he has never existed, and never could exist: he is just a
supposition invented pour les besoins de la cause— like the aether of an earlier generation
of scientists, who thought that if it did not exist it jolly well ought to— in order to justify
their ways of interpreting the sensually-perceived universe.
    As so often pointed out heretofore, 'see-ing', 'experiencing', signify the cognition
of all forms of manifestation, and indicate the 'pure perception' which is subsequently
interpreted as the apparent universe.
    That which is 'seen' or 'experienced' is as imaginary as the 'see-er' and 'experience-er':
both are interpretations of a movement in subjectivity which we term see-ing & experiencing.

Para #95 from Volume 16, Part 1
of Paul Brunton's Enlightened Mind, Divine Mind
Notebooks: "World-Mind in Individual Mind—
    An error of mysticism which must make the penetrative seek turn to
philosophy was the deification of man implicit in its claim that the mystic
can attain to union with God. There was some truth in this claim but
there was also some falsehood and certainly much confusion.
    It is not only true that there is variety in the types of illumination
but also true that there is a scale of degrees in the illumination itself.
    The undiscerning often believe that because some great saints have been
fools in worldly affairs, a saint who is always clever cannot be great.
Yet the spiritual aspirations which diminish a man's desire for worldly
activities do not therefore diminish his competence for them. He who is born
a fool usually remains so; he who is born clever usually stays so; and both
cases are unaffected by the attachment of the heart to God.
    Could we but trace some of these higher movements of history,
we would have to trace their course back to the secret inspiration of some
illuminates who live quietly and serve mankind without advertising the fact.
    He has to give out what those whom he is addressing can understand
and not outstrip their development. He may, for this purpose, either simplify
the teaching or keep back the more advanced portions, those dealing with the
transcendental mysteries.
Para #95 from Volume 16, Part 2 of Paul Brunton's
Notebooks: "World-Idea"—
    The World-Idea works itself out in time, which is the form wherein
the thoughts appear, and in history, which is the record of time.
Existence is an endless affair but it has periods of rest and withdrawal,
changes of form and body, of consciousness and selfhood. We are developments
brought forth from it and taken back into it.
    It is within the ultimate capacity of man and part of the higher
purpose for him to achieve this awareness of his divine selfhood.
Para #95 from Volume 16, Part 4 of Paul Brunton's
Notebooks: "The Alone"—
    That which both Greek Plato and Indian Vedantin called "the One" did not
refer to the beginning figure of a series, but to "One-without-a-Second".
    Let us not devote ourselves and dishonour the Supreme Being by thinking
that we know anything at all about IT. We know nothing. The intellect may
formulate conceptions, the intuition may give glimpses, but thes are our
human reactions to IT. Even the sage, who has attained a harmony with his
Overself, has found only the godlike within himself. Yes, it is certainly
the Light, but it is for him, for the human being. He still stands as much
outside the divine Mystery as everyone else. The difference is that whereas
they stand in the darkness he stands in this Light.
134) "We Create Our Mind Each Instant" is Lesson 95
of Subramuniyaswami's Merging with Siva (1999):
    The flower begins as the little seed and grows into a stem forming a bud.
We know nothing of the blossom until the bud opens, and we know little
of the bud after it has become a blossom. However, each process within
that growth to maturity is an experience for the plant. The seed contains
within itself its basic laws of growth. The stem will tell its own story as
it grows. The bud contains many experiences and has contained with it
a complete story of its own. As the blossom unfolds, it tells a radiant
autobiography of beauty
    In the philosophies of the Orient, the inner mind would look like
if you could see the mind. We can look at things on the material plane.
The ugly things tell us how ugly the mind can become. When we look
at the beautiful creations of nature, we see how lovely the mind can be.
    It is up to us to choose how we want to create the mind, conscious
and subconscious. I say "how we want to create the mind" because we are creating our mind
each instant. There is no past! That dream as it passes before our vision is right now. We call
it the past because we say we remember, but as we are remembering, we are recreating what
we are remembering in the present. There is no future! That is also a dream or a vision, just
like the past, because when we think of the so-called future we are recreating it before our
vision right now. Therefore, there is no past, there is no future. Now is the only apparent reality.
    Life is a series of decisions. Each instant, as we create the instant, we are creating the decision.
We are facing the reaction we caused to come before us, and in facing it with the power of principle
we are building the so-called future. So a man has two paths, and every moment is a moment of
judgment. Good judgment comes from concentration— directing the flow of thought.
It does not always have to be difficult to choose.

Tail of a Golden Fish:
While staying at Dae Sung Sah Temple, Zen Master Kum Bong sent a letter
to Zen Master Man Gong which said, "I want to fish for a golden fish's tail.
Do you approve?"
    Man Gong sent a letter back saying, "It's okay if you catch
the tail of a golden fish, but can you eat it>"
  1. What is the meaning of catching a golden fish's tail?
  2. If Man Gong asked you, "Can you eat it," what could you do?
    What does this mean?

Beware, beware! A golden fish already ate up two masters.

How sweet and lovely dost thou make the shame
Which, like a canker in the fragrant rose,
Doth spot the beauty of thy budding name!
O! in what sweets dost thou thy sins enclose.
That tongue that tells the story of thy days,
Making lascivious comments on thy sport,
Cannot dispraise, but in a kind of praise;
Naming thy name blesses an ill report.
O! what a mansion have those vices got
Which for their habitation chose out thee,
Where beauty's veil doth cover every blot
And all things turns to fair that eyes can see!
Take heed, dear heart, of this large privilege;
The hardest knife ill-used doth lose his edge.

A reminiscence of my perish'd love
Shone softly o'er my mind

Or music on the wind—
It had a sweet regretful power
Like fragrance from a withered flower—

Ye visitations from the fading past,
    Spirits o departed joys,
When gloom and sadness overcast,
    Then to my soul arise
And be like sunshine on the grave
Of hopes I loved but could not save—
    Come as the twilight of the day
    Whose summer now is past away—

95th Verse in Tagore's Gitanjali:
I was not aware of the moment when I first crossed the threshold of this life.
What was the power that made me open out into this
vast mystery like a bud in the forest at midnight!

When in the morning I looked upon the light
I felt in a moment that I was no stranger in this world,
that the inscrutable without name and form had taken me
in its arms in the form of my own mother.

Even so, in death the same unknown will appear as ever known to me.
And because I love this life, I know I shall love death as well.

The child cries out when from the right breast the mother takes it away,
in the very next moment to find in the left one its consolation.

152) Sonnet 95 in Pablo Neruda's 100 Love Sonnets (1960)
Whoever loved as we did? Let us hunt
for the ancient cinders of a heart that burned
and make our kisses fall one by one,
till that empty flower rises again.

Let us love the love that consumed its fruit and went
down, its image and its power, into the earth:
you and I are the light that endures,
its irrevocable delicate thorn.

Bring to that love, entombed by so much cold time,
by snow and spring, by oblivion and autumn,
the light of a new apple, light

of a freshness opened by a new wound,
like that ancient love that passes in silence
through an eternity of buried mouths.

Poem #95 is a prose poem
I love you so much with this curiously alive and lonely body.
It is a young hawk sitting on a tree by the Mississippi, in early spring,
before any green has appeared on the earth beneath. I love you far
in my chest, where walnut hollows fill with crackling light and shadows...
There birds drink from water drops we offer on the tips of our fingers.
My body loves you with what it extracts from the prudent man, hunched
over his colony of lizards; and with that it loves you madly, beyond all
rules and conventions.
    Even the six holes in the flute move about under the dark
man's fingers, and the piercing cry goes out overt the grown-up pastures
no one sees or visits at dusk except the deer, out of all enclosures,
who has never seen any bed but his own of wild grass.
    I first met you when I had been alone for nine days, and now
my lonely hawk body longs to be with you, whom it remembers.
It know how close we sould always be. There is death, but also this
closeness... this joy when the bee rises into the air above his hive
to find the sun, to become the son, and the traveler moves through
exile and loss, through murkiness and failure, to touch the earth
again of his own kingdom and kiss the ground.
    What shall I say of this? I say praise to the first man or woman
who wrote down this joy clearly, for we cannot remain in love with
what we cannot name...

(43 Centuries of Spiritual Poetry by Women)
95th poem is by Mirabai (1498-1565),
"O friends on this Path"—

O friends on this Path,
My eyes are no longer my eyes.
A sweetness has entered through them,
Has pierced through to my heart.
For how long did I stand in the house of this body
And stare at the road?
My Beloved is a steeped herb, he has cured me for life.
Mira belongs to Giridhara, the One who lifts all,
And everyone says she is mad.

156) There are 229 poems in Kay Ryan's
The Best of It (2010), 95th poem

Why isn't it all
more marked,
why isn't every wall
graffitied, every park tree
stripped like the
stark limbs
in the house of
the chimpanzees?
Why is there bark
left? Why do people
cling to their
shortening shrifts
like rafts? So

Kay Ryan,
US Poet Laureate
Not why people are;
why not more violent?
We must be
so absrorbent.
We must be
almost crystals.
almost all some
neutralizing chemical
that really does
clarify and bring peace,
take back sorrow
and make surcease.

157) Numerology: words whose letters add up to 95

(1 + 9 + 9) + (6 + 9 + 9 + 5) + (5 + 1 + 2 + 5 + 9) + (5 + 1 + 9 + 2 + 8) = 19 + 29 + 22 + 25 = 95

(5 + 2 + 5 + 9 + 5 + 1 + 3) + (5 + 5 + 3 + 9 + 7 + 8 + 2 + 5 + 5 + 4 + 5 + 5 + 2) = 30 + 65 = 95

(7 + 6 + 5 + 2 + 8+ 5) + (7 + 8 + 9 + 3 + 6 + 1 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 7) = 33 + 62 = 95

(7 + 9 + 1 + 9 + 3) + (2 + 9 + 1 + 5 + 1 + 6 + 6 + 9 + 4 + 1 + 2 + 9 + 6 + 5) = 29 + 66 = 95

(7 + 9 + 6 + 2 + 5 + 9 + 5) + (4 + 9 + 9 + 5 + 3 + 2 + 9 + 6 + 5) = 43 + 52 = 95

(1 + 5 + 9 + 7 + 5 + 5 + 2) + (7 + 9 + 3 + 7 + 9 + 9 + 4 + 1 + 7 + 5) = 34 + 61 = 95

(1 + 7 + 9 + 9 + 5 + 7) + (9 + 5 + 9 + 2 + 9 + 1 + 2 + 9 + 6 + 5) = 38 + 57 = 95

(2 + 9 + 9 + 7 + 9 + 1 + 4 + 1) + (9 + 5 + 6 + 3 + 5 + 3 + 2 + 9 + 6 + 5) = 42 + 53 = 95

Note: An earlier version of "On the Number 95" was completed on 10-30-2003 for my Mom's 95th birthday
containing 62 items with poem "Meditations on 95". For my Cornell Professor H. A. Scheraga's 95th birthday,
I've expanded "Number 95" to more than 157 items, including 45 postage stamps with 95 denominations,
collectables with cards #95, Route #95 signs, Football players with #95 uniforms, Art, Music, Books, and
Movies with #95 in their titles, Quotes from books on Philosophy & Poetry passages associated with #95.
Airplane, Tanks, Locomotive, and Saab Car with #95 numbering were also added in this newer edition.
Many images were resized and texts formatted so none of the images were cropped while printing at 72%.
This project took 19 days to complete (October 13-November 1, 2016).
