    Now playing SpaceCollective
    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction
    Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.
    I went to an opening the other night
    T'were my eyes were betwinkled by a lovely sight
    I had to watch to see if a blink she would make
    Alas, t'was not my gaze would stir her to wake

    Not a flutter to be made nor a glance toward me
    Closely I watched but no pulse could I see
    For her time stood still, caught in eternity it seemed
    She was made of bronze (me thinks mixed with a dream)

    Now, I was betold by a beautiful young lady
    During a cleaning a maid with harshness did say
    "Get yourself up, get dressed and go out of here!"
    How foolish must she have felt and to magic, so near.

    As I have heard Joy say:
    "Everything is perfect just the way it is."

    And I say:
    "We are all perfectly imperfect"

    And John said:
    "There is nothing you can know that can't be known.
    There is nothing you can do that can't be done.
    Nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be.
    But you can learn how to play the game.
    It's easy.
    All you need is love."

    "What if?"
    An Alice in Wonderland command.

    But what if size didn't matter to, say, conscious beings from another planet visiting (heaven forbid!) our own minute monstrosity homeland. If they had no special affinity to humans they may choose whatever size they please.
    What you see here is a Martian Tourist Earth Rover full of tourists.
    by Joy.





    And it came through this bamboo vortex.

    I found this article in Wired Magazine on the net that discusses two creative types: Conceptualists and Experimentalists.
    The idea was new to me. I hope it's not old news to most of you.

    “Picasso and Cézanne represent radically different approaches to creation. Picasso thought through his works carefully before he put brush to paper. Like most conceptualists, he figured out in advance what he was trying to create. The underlying idea was what mattered; the rest was mere execution. The hallmark of conceptualists is certainty. They know what they want. And they know when they’ve created it. Cézanne was different. He rarely preconceived a work. He figured out what he was painting by actually painting it. “Picasso signed virtually everything he ever did immediately,” Galenson says. “Cézanne signed less than 10 percent.”

    Experimentalists never know when their work is finished. As one critic wrote of Cézanne, the realization of his goal “was an asymptote toward which he was forever approaching without ever quite reaching.”

    Of course, not every unaccomplished 65-year-old is some undiscovered experimental innovator. This is a universal theory of creativity, not a Viagra for sagging baby boomer self-esteem. It’s no justification for laziness or procrastination or indifference. But it might bolster the resolve of the relentlessly curious, the constantly tinkering, the dedicated tortoises undaunted by the blur of the hares. Just ask David Galenson.”

    The entire article can be found at the link below.

    In the US much talk can be heard about the Baby Boomer's beginning to collect S.S.
    The ideal is that all of us retire from whatever it is we do and begin to live comfortable, interesting and rewarding years away from the 9 to 5. For many this may be far from reality. To think of living in today's world on S.S. alone is a joke to keep it light. Within this wave are many who are closet non savers, getting along OK in a work-a-day world, having to let tomorrow be. We will have to come up with something.
    So we were talking about Reco Villages. A place set up as a commune (for lack of a better word) where the participants build, work and live as a not for profit community, as close as possible to self sustaining. With meager income, limited labor at hopefully chosen tasks, management, upkeep, power and food supplied by residents actually enjoying golden years might be possible. Or we could let our government take care of it all.
    Am I dreaming?

    Where did it all start?
    Did it all start? Or is starting a purely human concept designed to help us get a grip?
    If the human brain was simple enough to understand we would not be smart enough to understand it.
    Now, this piece started with a sweet potato.
