comment What b'racha do you say on seeing the Aurora Borealis (if any)?
@IsaacKotlicky At Wikipedia en.wikipedia.org/?title=Astrology Astrology From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Not to be confused with Astronomy, the scientific study of celestial objects. Astrology consists of several pseudoscientific systems of divination based on the premise that there is a relationship between astronomical phenomena and events in the human world.

comment How does the principle of “ikkar” and “tofel” work with the after-blessing?
@Daniel Devorim 8, 10. "And you will eat and be sated, and you shall bless the Lord, your God, for the good land He has given you." chabad.org/library/bible_cdo/aid/9972http://www.chabad.org/…

comment How does the principle of “ikkar” and “tofel” work with the after-blessing?
@DanF I want to understand the mechanism by which ikar/tafel operates so that it generates such a surprising conclusion in this case. Just defining it as ikar/tafel does not satify me.

@Daniel I am not making any claims about the reason for the before-blessing. My question is about the after-blessing and that is why I gave you my idea about the after-blessing.

@DanF “The Halachos of Brochos” by Rabbi Bodner page 254 says “Just as the initial brocha on the ikar covers the tofel, so too does the brocha achrona of ikar cover the tofel”. And in the “Handbook” about for example “Wheat Chex” it says the after-brocha is “al hamichya”.

There are two ways to eat the cereal and milk (separately and together). The bodily benefit is the same in both ways. I assume the after-blessing is to thank for the benefit to the body. Why then should the after blessing depend on how I eat the cereal and milk?
