MOTD: Science & Enlightenment

Posted on Updated on

Update: After doing some digging, it turns out that this mural was commissioned in 2015 by the The Paradise Project. American artist Levi Ponce created the 75 foot long masterpiece on The Paradise Project’s headquarters in Venice, CA. The name of this creation is called Luminaries of Pantheism. That would make this a Pantheism Meme.

I only recognized five of these people…Einstein, Watts, McKenna, Sagan and Tesla. I originally requested help with the others but, I have the complete list, now. LOL! ~Vic

Top Row: Albert Einstein, Alan Watts (my personal favorite), Baruch Spinoza, Terence McKenna, Carl Jung, Carl Sagan, Emily Dickinson & Nikola Tesla.

Bottom Row: Friedrich Nietzsche, Ralph Waldo Emerson, W.E.B. Du Bois, Henry David Thoreau & Elizabeth Cady Stanton.

Right Side: Rumi, Adi Shankara & Lao Tzu.

VOTD: King Air Landing 2005

Posted on

I can’t, for the life of me, remember where in the hell I got this. I have just collected things, electronically, over the years. Pretty amazing landing, considering. It reminds me of Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger’s landing…sans water. ~Vic

The below is now Part Six of the final Seven Part Series showcasing my former supervisor’s work and, additional photos taken of him at various stages of his life and career. The above picture of Big Bend National Park, I never got to see while I was living in Texas. It’s a big state and there is a lot to see. I confess that I spent a rather large amount of time traveling back and forth, between the Austin area and the Houston area, as I had a very dear friend and classmate living in Spring. Texas will always be my second home.

The following three pictures, he sent to me on November 17, 2008. I have no idea when or where these were taken but, they were his friends and they requested his expertise.
