Release the Pressure

 

 

Release the Pressure” – poem written at the dawn of a new day, watching a magnificent sunrise @ a mountain party in the woods of Colorado…

 

 

 

 

All I wanted to do is write down a rhyme
About the vastness of space and the passage of time
So I sat down and listened to the call of the wild
Passing the reigns over to my inner child
And as he took over a curious thing happened
My mind was cleared, and the veil was lifted
I looked at the world and I saw all of its people
I saw the trees, the flowers, the air
I heard loud music with deep bass and a little dry snare
I felt the refreshing, cold raindrops gently fall down
As the colors of autumn waltzed into town
I saw bare feet walk on the earth
And a playful fire light up the family hearth
I realized sometimes life is simple – life is a bliss
If you just let it flow through you and cherish each kiss…

Universe Grows Like a Giant Brain

The universe may grow like a giant brain, according to a new computer simulation.

The results, published Nov. 16 in the journal Nature’s Scientific Reports, suggest that some undiscovered, fundamental laws may govern the growth of systems large and small, from the electrical firing between brain cells and growth of social networks to the expansion of galaxies.

“Natural growth dynamics are the same for different real networks, like the Internet or the brain or social networks,” said study co-author Dmitri Krioukov, a physicist at the University of California San Diego.

You Are Here – Pale Blue Dot

This excerpt from A Pale Blue Dot was inspired by an image taken, at Carl Sagan’s suggestion, by Voyager 1 on February 14, 1990.

As the spacecraft left our planetary neighborhood for the fringes of the solar system, engineers turned it around for one last look at its home planet.

Voyager 1 was about 6.4 billion kilometres (4 billion miles) away, and approximately 32 degrees above the ecliptic plane, when it captured this portrait of our world.

Natural Phenomena – Video by VideoSapien

Humans are part of the natural order.

We’re risen apes that acquired language and learned to use tools.

Skyscrapers and spacecraft may seem unnatural, but they’re just as much a part of the natural order as beaver dams and bird nests.

Boring electrical lines hint at the energy solution of a mammalian species.

Open your eyes to the world you’ve grown accustomed to, and rejoice in the fact that you can participate in the human project.
