The Observer Phenomenon


https://superrare.com/artwork-v2/the-observer-phenomenon-38402

 'It was the secrets of heaven and earth that I desired to learn; and whether it was the outward substance of things or the inner spirit of nature and the mysterious soul of humankind that occupied me, still my inquiries were directed at the metaphysical, or in its highest sense, the physical secrets of the world.'
 – Mary Shelley, Frankenstein.

*** I still believe in the utopian ideals set out by the early internet pioneers. I believe in the power of the underground to reinvent the world. Start where you are, use what you have and do what you can. The path less travelled can make all the difference. I believe in a society of contrasting individuals united in their differences, not in their similarities. Build new cities in your mind and share them out please. This is how it should be done boss.

It’s Full of Stars


re-interpretation of Schinkels 1847 artwork-illustration ‘the magic flute’ / "Königin der Nacht". reworked masterfully from original hand-painted plates - scanned at very high resolution.

     
    The idea flew right out of my mind in an instant - projected the 0.000010561 of a mile to my eyes and a farther 0.000022990 of a mile to the tip of my nose...

    It then soared up and out 30,444 miles - right to the very edge of the Earth's stratosphere...

    At the speed of thought, it travelled 9,639,563,280 miles beyond the Earth's stratosphere and past Pluto, to the outer-limits of our solar system...


 
    A farther 5,584,694,104,524,427,000 and then out into deep space before exiting at the edge of our galaxy; The Milky Way...

    Burning very brightly now and white-hot it arrives 273,349,241,357,280,005,062,656 miles beyond the edge of our galaxy and at the far edge of the known Universe - where it finally settles...

    It is here that a thought may remain indefinitely, glowing as brightly as a star and waiting for others to join it, all glimmering together at the very edge of the Universe.
