About Cryptomathematics.

The Newtonian space and time collapsed in 1905 when Albert Einstein, at the age of twenty-six, published four groundbreaking papers: On the Photoelectric Effect; Brownian Motion; The Special Relativity, and The Equivalence of Mass and Energy. The new concept is that all objects are moving vibrations in the space-time continuum. The quantum physician Heisenberg introduced … Continue reading About Cryptomathematics.

The Artist as an Einzelgänger

In this post I would like to explore some artistically personality traits as inspired by the compositions of Giorgio Morode.  The album Einzelgänger was first produced in Germany in 1975 and contained some electronic experimental soundtracks that at the time of its release attracted almost zero attention. The Englishman Bellotte was in charge of the … Continue reading The Artist as an Einzelgänger

HUMANHOOD

The title of this post refers to a dance company that that takes inspiration from very similar sources as I do as a writer. The research behind their art is rooted in physics and astrophysics, as well as in their personal insight into Eastern mysticism, fascinated by the connections that lie between these seemingly different … Continue reading HUMANHOOD

Similarities between Art and Religion

Some people who exercise an artistically activity without being able to extract a living out of it, are often in doubt if they can call themselves an artist. Sometimes they’re even sneered at by friends or family members for investing so much time in their “hobby”. Now consider the case of people who’re carrying out … Continue reading Similarities between Art and Religion

One should disagree with this stance, because in this worldview, Einstein would not have been just some bystander at the Alamo-project that developed the first nuclear bombs. We are trained and educated to comprehend the … Continue reading Knowledge and Power

One of the most primitive innate needs of humans is to understand the world around us, and then share that understanding. Both science and art are human attempts to understand and describe the world around us. The subjects and methods have different traditions, and the intended audiences are different, but I think the motivations and … Continue reading Science = Art

Zen and the 7 principles of beauty.

While browsing through the websites I'm following on this forum, I stumbled upon a quote Oscar Wilde made in The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890); Veil after veil of thin dusky gauze is lifted, and by degrees the forms and colors of things worth of pursuing are restored to them, and we watch the dawn remaking … Continue reading Zen and the 7 principles of beauty.

The Seven Senses

  From childhood, we are taught that the human body has five senses. I’m sure most readers can recite them: sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell. This list has remained unchanged since the time of Aristotle. To most people, a “sixth sense” refers either to one outside the realm of the scientific, or one that simply … Continue reading The Seven Senses

The Seven Dimensions of Culture.

Seven is a returning number in the synthetic theory of the universe, humankind and religion. In analogy with the 7 dimensional structure of the reality and of the human psyche, there exists a model that proposes a set of 7 different axis along which cultures differentiate one from another. Trompenaars and Hampden-Turner concluded that what … Continue reading The Seven Dimensions of Culture.
