Trending Tuesday

- All things about the George Zimmerman Trial: I generally don't comment on trials, sometimes due to personal involvement in a case, but mostly because I hate controversy. Clients and I discussing this case last week agreed Zimmerman would, and should be, acquitted. Criminal cases of a racial nature surface and become the focus for frustrated people to express their views, and often angry, on a united forum, sometimes based on their personal experiences. Trayvon Matin's death will unite souls of like mind who will discuss it for a long time - on and offline. The focus as always is equality - the ultimate game changer.

- The heat wave sweeping the country this July - the third here in the city this summer - with more to come.

Art and Programmed Codes

Both children and adults love to relax and express themselves

in sort form of art, which is part of our human programming.

They say that great artists are born, not made, which again goes to one's programmed codes for experience. On a soul level, art takes one beyond the physical, to other realities in which they are experiencing. Visionary art is a definite example of going beyond, in color, form, and design.

On a psychological level, one's art form reflects the programming and emotional make-up of the artist - which in turn will attract those with similar grids of experience. Art is a form of self-expressions and therapy, some people making a career as an art therapist to heal their issues and those of others. Today, we have endless art mediums, including technology, in which we create, giving us a feeling of connection to the creation process itself. It takes us out of the left brain's local thinking and into the right brain where we find our creative pulse.

Art History reflects the life and times of a specific century, culture, and the struggles of the people at that point in history. Tracing art back to prehistoric times we get a glimpse of the way ancient man expressed his perceptions of the world around him. This often leads researchers today to conclude that people in ancient (grids) timelines believed in alien creators who descended from the sky and will one day return - as one creation ends and a new one begins.

The Escher Grid

Escher showed us that all things are connected to the same grid matrix

by infinitely repeating patterns and surreal worlds.

It's about matter and anti-matter and

our computer brains' ON OFF ON OFF binary codes.

This reminds me of the Dragonfly on the screen below.

A man's reach should exceed his grasp, or what's a heaven for? Less is more.
