Dots? Did he say “dots”? Why yes, he did.

Why?

It’s all about the DOTS, of course.  Since much of my art is composed of tiny dots–a technique called stippling--Michio Kaku’s little chat about his new book caught my attention. Once I lay eyes and hands on The Future of the Mind hopefully I’ll have more to say about it than the fact that my curiosity is highly aroused by Kaku’s notions.  What’s brewing in your mind?

    Very interesting but I was taken back a bit with Kaku’s narrow vision that “our” (universe) is “special” and to prove this he states that “we are here to talk about it”. Then he concludes as if this is the final word on the matter that “in these other universes there are no humans, there is no one there to talk about it …….”

    Well, Tubularsock is not going to tell the other universes.
    Kaku seems a little too narrow for Tubularsock’s thinking.

    I like your art work. Tubularsock has always been taken by stippling. How wonderful to work with ………..

      Welcome and hello, tubularsock–I concur with your statements regarding Kaku’s view of us as special–clearly he has his limits. Ironic but typical of much scientific thinking. What intrigues me is this ‘new’ western awareness of the mind and energy. Kaku’s thoughts about the mind and humans may seem narrow to tubularsock–but to other starting in other places this might expand their vistas–or not. I’m eager to see just how far Kaku dares to go in this book.

      I suspect other universes are having a laugh and shaking their heads at the narrow visions. Damn the human mind has such power and potential and yet we impose such limits and boundaries on it with ‘narrow’ vision.

      Thank you for enjoying my art. I’m not sure where it comes from–but it come it does. I don’t plan it. I don’t map it out. It comes from music and meditation without blueprints.Or perhaps it is blueprints?

    In my mind? I’m a tad scared, Eva, the premise he talks about? Replaying a task in a rats mind, (so presumably in the future humans…for how can Scientists resist the next step? ) will that mean thought control/programming… Yikes…
    BUT saying that, love your inspiration… She Creates, perfectly methinks… xx

      Indeed the lab rat games do raise more serious question than inspire awe at the wonders of science. What exactly is driving such research is a very good question to raise, Lady Pen. But–I’d rather know what they’re poking around with–with their usual lack of understanding–than not knowing what fire they’re (as in the scientific community) playing with.

      In another light I see this as a small step forward in thinking as it goes beyond only what we can verify by sight and touch in the usual manners. I say small, because I share tubularsock’s view of Kaku’s narrow vision regarding other universes and lifeforms.

      Funny thing about this piece of art–I did not find the “she” in it until it was nearly finished. Thanks for your kind words.

      I wish not to be pedantic here penpusherpen but the “thought control/programming horse has already left the barn. What each of us is “living-in” is the pre-programming from birth.

      Tubularsock knows a lot of rats in Washington, D.C. that need reprograming. I’ll start tonight!

    I bet you have created drawings with 30,000 dots or more and they represent more than one thought!

    • March 20, 2014 at 7:06 pm

      Al, it would overwhelm me completely IF I ever started counting the dots or watching the clock while creating anything! LOL.

      Copy that, Bear.
      After catching your comment about “mato”–I think I’ll refrain from addressing you as such in order to avoid any serious misunderstandings by others. 🙂

        Just don’t use Spanish at the same 🙂 Wonder if it happened already? Mój przyjaciel Eva

        What? No mixing the linguistic stew pot for fun? 🙂
        Btw, did you find the Russian addition to Vernal Equinox?
