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 US Literary Universe.

Since US literature, as represented by the US Library of Congress, has the whole universe as a subject, one could assume that this system is also governed by the same mechanisms that it describes. In the following two paragraphs I would like to outline some analogies between what most people consider as two disciplines who … Continue reading The US Literary Universe.

The Lovecraftian Universe as a Cornerstone of The Maharajagar.

Howard Philips Lovecraft created an alternate universe populated by malevolent sea-creatures and gods whereupon multiple artists have been expanding. Although he died in poverty, Lovecraft is now heralded as one of the greatest horror and fantasy writers of his time. In modern fiction and art, his work  is frequently referred to as “The Cthulhu Mythos,” … Continue reading The Lovecraftian Universe as a Cornerstone of The Maharajagar.

Magicians, Artists and Scientists.

Magic and the supernatural have been declared nonexistent, artists are called illusionists and scientists are deemed to be incomprehensible monomaniacs who know a lot about little but little about a lot. Where does this leave us? Maybe it’s time to take a break and resume it. The synthetic Theory of the Universe, humankind and Religion. … Continue reading Magicians, Artists and Scientists.

About The Canon of the World Literature.

Three years ago, I took it upon me to read the top 100 of the Canon of the world literature and have recently accomplished this challenge. The least I can say about this task is that I’ve learned something of this experience. Nevertheless there were a couple of unexpected hurdles along the road that I … Continue reading About The Canon of the World Literature.

SILON

In my search for artistically projects that are inspired by the same themes as my writing project, I stumbled upon THE SECRET AND IMPOSSIBLE LEAGUE OF THE NOOSPHERE.  This theater production is the result of conversations between director Meghan Arnette and playwright Darian Lindle about theater, science fiction, identity, the female voice, and the power … Continue reading SILON

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

Gross National Happiness is more important than Gross Domestically Product

Throughout modern history, societal progress has been measured in terms of GDP. The higher the GDP, the more developed a country, so goes the general belief. There is, thus a mad rush for increasing GDP. Hence, over time, GDP came to be seen as a surrogate for societal wellbeing – something it was never designed … Continue reading Gross National Happiness is more important than Gross Domestically Product

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

Science = Art

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.
