    INFINITE PHOTOGRAPH—AS SEEN ON EARTH

    http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/greenguide/infinite-photograph

    Yesterday I went to a NPR and National Geographic collaboration event where photographers, as well as radio journalists described a new movement towards making photographs and storytelling collaborate into a rich piece of documentation. During this presentation the Infinite photograph was shown to express the significance of the photography that is submitted by regular users. I think this mosaic portait is a beautiful metaphor of our everyday world where everything around you contributes to your essence and you make up a piece of someone else. It's truly beautiful.



    GALAXY ZOO

    http://galaxyzoo.org/

    If you ever wanted to change your profession for just one day and become an astronomer, physicist, or any other being contributing to the exploration of the universe, this site is perfect for you. I found it spontaneously when searching for a good university to take my masters degree and it turns out that John Hopkins University is a prominent member in the astronomic community. JHU created a website that allows people from all over the world to participate in the classification of galaxies. From deciding the shape and size to the brighness and the clarity, it is all on you! I love it :)

    It never seizes to amaze me how the human mind works.

    Sometimes I have days where I forget my goal, the reason for me being. Just a few days ago, I was completely nostalgic for my home city, remembering the old routines, familiar streets... At that moment I understood that people (by people I mean me) like familiarity because it has been tested and there are no surprises. We try to bring back the old days or look forward to the future, not appreciating the present. I think this is because we like predicting; when we reminisce or prophesize, we feel in control. Those happy moments that we want to bring back were unnoticed when they happened. Only now we appreciate them. So why can't we unnotice the meaningless moments? We tend to focus on the negatives because this is the time for us to try to improve our situation and make the moment meaningful.

    What we have to understand is that every moment is unique; whether it is meaningful or meaningless, happy or sad, cold or hot. Now, now, and even now are all unique because nothing stayed the same during those "nows"; something in the multiverse changed. Because uniqueness is a fact of our lives, we have to love it and only then will be happy "now".

    Ahh... Tabula rasa.
