Musings about my art and this world

The collapse of a wave function has left me and you here.

From shapes with edges.

Creating forms.

To the edges becoming lines.

Creating forms.

To lines of energy.

Creating forms.

And strands of DNA.

Creating forms.

Then the vibration of Strings.

Creating forms.

A journey to understanding seems to be what life and art are all about.

The collapse of a wave function has left me and you here.

Here in this one Chaotic metaverse of unknown numbers we vie for needs and desires. Creating forms of living and beliefs that compete. Art. Life. Always changing.

What if Heaven is another Metaverse. And Hell another. Why not? 

What if the Heaven metaverse is paradise. No wants. No desires. Total worship of a deity many here call God. Praising with no end.

What if the Hell metaverse is horrid torture and mental anguish. Suffering with no end.

The collapse of a wave function has left me and you here.

Of course I am pleased I landed here on this ball of confusion rather than either of those. It suits me somehow. It makes me wonder. It makes me weep too. I have choice. I have a certain freedom. I am fortunate, and know it. I recognize there are people who are not.

The thing is there are some people who seem to want to make this verse their kind of heaven as well as those who are making it hellish. Maybe the true nature of our verse is to be the one place in the universe where we all can exist in total disharmony. If we accept the disharmony of each other and give each other the space to be.

Or maybe we here are the outcasts from some other verse. We who could not accept and obey their rules. Here we've landed, however that works, to find ourselves now up to our necks in chaos. Now live with that! 

The collapse of a wave function has left me and you here.

Or we can agree to change. After all that's what this verse is all about.

The Lightness of the Spheres

In a dream The world is suddenly darker. The view is of a vast seemingly empty space stretching to infinity. Inquiring figures seek to enter asking why. Something powerful challenges their entry. Pawing them Hands running over and under their clothes Touching them Grabbing them all over. Pulling down their attire. But garments newly torn or removed Reassemble Rearrange Are restored. Injuries Once raw Heal. Scars Ugly reminders Fade away. The Inquiring figures are whole once more. Remade. Now seen within this vast space are Other figures They have their arms full of spheres of different dark shades and patterns. The Inquiring figures say to these Others that you are weighing down the World by holding on to so many darkly shaded patterned spheres. But the Other figures reply As they balance in their arms their darkly shaded patterned spheres They have the right to hold on to what they want. To listen to who they choose To believe w

COVID-19: What is our National Social Responsibility?

The “Social Distancing” that will get us through this health crisis needs “Socially Responsible” economic counterparts that establish new ways for us to live, work, learn and care for one another and this planet. “Nothing should go back to normal. Normal wasn’t working.” (Instagram March 2020) The COVID-19 health crisis that we are in the early stages of has all the signs of plunging us into an economic depression worse than the Great Depression while stripping bare the priorities and inequities of our current economic system. During the Great Depression 1929-1939 the highest rate of U.S. unemployment was 24.9%. In March 2020 unemployment swelled to 10 million in two weeks. The Fed went further saying that, “Coronavirus job losses could total 47 million, unemployment rate may hit 32%”. Recently The New York Times Editorial Board asked: “Why is America Choosing Mass Unemployment?” “A number of European countries, after similarly failing to control the spread of the virus, and t

COVID-19 Pandemic: What is to blame?

On this 50th anniversary of Earth Day our mastery over the earth and its species has earned us something quite different than we were expecting. How did this happen? A bat in China bites a wildlife animal? Sells at a market. Infects someone. Pandemic. “In any case, researchers agree that the coronavirus jumped from an animal to a human, a phenomenon known as "zoonotic spillover." As we struggle to meet this pandemic we must not ignore this “spillover” factor and what caused it. We defend human rights but what of the rights of Nature, wild animals, natural habitats and our surrounding environment? In a Lancet Journal article experts cited, “...scientific evidence that support the theory that "overwhelmingly conclude that this coronavirus originated in wildlife, as have so many other emerging pathogens”. It is not surprising then that a UC Davis study of animal species that host viruses known to infect humans found, “The exploitation of wildlife increases the risk of ani
