drama teacher had a cool book. A series of photos like the
one above, illustrating the motion-over-time of dancing
and other activities. I find it fascinating because this
is a more accurate picture of what we are than the micro-slice
of "now" that we see - this is how we look across

Imagine a camera-flash in space ... it's an expanding sphere
In this photo
we have a star which has exploded. We are seeing the light-burst
traveling outwards in all directions as it illuminates dust
and gas previously blown-off by the star.

LOVE CORPSES and they are the ULTIMATE cosmic rock &

nice email explaining this one:

Symbolism and some research led a very learned man by the
name of Adam Mclean to email me with the following information
about the above image;
"This is an engraving from Kircher, Athanasius. China
Monumentis, Amsterdam 1667.
is Kircher's imagining of a Buddhist icon, which he calls
the idol of Pussa. Of course, it draws more on the European
emblem tradition than on any real encounter with Eastern
thanks to "Carla" for the information!
Mr Mclean has an amazing website and other links, which
you may or may not like to add to your fantastic collection

RA Live in the 1960s ... He always had
the coolest 'headgear', we call the twisted coat-hangers
on his head the 'cosmic antenna'
know if that's what was intended,
but this looks a lot like what a Cluster
Headache feels like (a bit like a hot-poker in the eye)
