"A dimension is not an orientation in space, it’s a scale or size of structure in space-time as the universe goes from infinitely large to infinitely small in a fractal holographic series of boundary conditions (like infinite Russian dolls stacked inside of each other). So, depending on what scale you are talking about, you can say something like a biological scale entity is incredibly active even though it may be sleeping or seemingly “inactive” because at the cellular dimension or the quantum dimension there may be millions or even billions of “actions” happening per second…"
Municipal waterways often double as highways for garbage—a well-known and highly visible problem with no obvious solution. So when photographer Jeremy Underwood stumbled across an especially polluted beach in Houston, he decided to make the trash he found into more than just lazily bobbing reminders of intractability.
“I simply couldn’t believe the state this area was in,” Underwood told WIRED by email. “Garbage littered the shoreline, a pungent smell filled the air and signs about the polluted waters stood in confirmation of its degraded state. Hidden from view, I felt something had to be done to bring attention to this beach … it struck me for the first time that taking only a picture was not enough. ”
Mary Elizabeth Kennedy, 1911-1991

"The pollution of the planet is only an outward reflection of an inner psychic pollution: millions of unconscious individuals not taking responsibility for their inner space."
Another new crop circle has popped up in Wiltshire.
- the thin lines dividing the 3D cube are no more than 4 inches wide
- there are 124 perfectly symmetrical triangles
- There are multidirectional multilayering effects of the perimeter circle and even within the triangles
"Google Street View" of the Cosmos Unveiled
A new home-grown instrument based on bundles of optical fibres is giving Australian astronomers the first ‘Google street view’ of the cosmos — incredibly detailed views of huge numbers of galaxies. Developed by researchers at the University of Sydney and the Australian Astronomical Observatory, the optical-fibre bundles can sample the light from up to 60 parts of a galaxy, for a dozen galaxies at a time. The technological leap is the ‘hexabundle’, sixty or more optical fibres close-packed and fused together, developed by the University of Sydney’s astrophotonics group.
Using the new instrument astronomers from the Australian National University and the University of Sydney have already spotted ‘galactic winds’—streams of charged particles travelling at up to 3,000 km a second—from the center of two galaxies.
"We are so trained in the thought system of fear and attack that we get to the point where natural thinking — love — feels unnatural and unnatural thinking — fear — feels natural. It takes real discipline and training to unlearn the thought system of fear."
Cupid and Hymen Drink from the Cup of Friendship, by Jean Baptiste Regnault, 1820
"Letting go is such a difficult thing to understand. You can’t try to let go. Trying to let go is like trying not to think about something. You’re just going to think about it even more. I think letting go is less of an ending of one thing and more of an acceptance of everything. It’s okay that this is the way it is right now. There’s no other way it’s supposed to be."
