Gotta love this title of an image on the HubbleSite Gallery:
Space Phenomenon Imitates Art in Universe's Version of van Gogh Painting
So, sometimes Godde does a bit of painting--that should surprise us? I mean, once that evolution thing was set in motion, the program could pretty much run itself, no? Leaves time to pursue the arts, I should think. Where do we think Van Gogh learned to do it anyway? "Space phenomonon imitates art"--such linear thinking.
Okay, maybe I started out trying to be "deep", but I've gotten deeply silly instead. How about a deep Einstein quote?
A human being is a part of a whole, called by us 'universe', a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
And also a slightly silly one...
You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat.
I hope you all are enjoying a pleasant Friday evening.
