Looking for Life in the Multiverse

It is nice to know that you have been in Fashion even before fashion arrives. As a long time enthusiast of Vampires and just about anything Gothic, I have also been quite the enthusiast of said Multiverse and Multidimensional “Realities” for the past 25 years. Seeing the esoteric possibilities of Multiple Dimensions arrive to the forefront of Scientific Thought has put quite a smile on my face. Dr. Kaku has taken the lead in this area, in recent times – with quite a prolific cornucopia of high-level thought on the subject - which has now hit the cover of Scientific American Magazine.

• Multiple other universes—each with its own laws of physics—may have emerged from the same primordial vacuum that gave rise to ours.
• Assuming they exist, many of those universes may contain intricate structures and perhaps varied forms of life.
• These findings suggest that our universe may not be as “finely tuned” for the emergence of life as previously thought.

And, per Vampires and Gothic...

My "Steampunk" Doorbell... Delivery guys love it.

I created this Steampunk Doorbell last year and mounted it on the front of my house. Most Pizza and Delivery guys love it. It acts as somewhat of an intelligence test, as some people understand that the Glowing Blue Button in the center is the key - and some don't. I can honestly say that it receives many comments.

How to Travel to a Parallel Universe - Teaser

Just a small sample from the mind of Dr. Michio Kaku (and other Theoretical Scientists). The New "Reality".

Life and Death on Mars - The Sahara Desert may know...

ALH84001 is a 13,000 year old meteorite from Mars, found in 1984 in the Allan Hills Region of Antarctica. This sample contained nanometer-sized iron sulfide and iron oxide grains (which was theorized were produced by bacteria) and organic compounds known at polyaromatic hydrocarbons, or PHAs, which suggested the organic remains of Martian organisms. In November of 2009, NASA scientists commenced new research that used a new analysis technique, called ion beam milling, to study the iron grains. They concluded that there is "considerable evidence" that the nanocrystal iron grains were not the result of geology, which leaves biology as the real only other alternative.

Finding Life on Mars may be much more difficult that finding a needle in a haystack. One only needs to look at the Sahara Desert to illustrate this point. Only recently (and only available in certain areas) proof has been found that the Sahara Desert was an Ocean 30 Million years ago. It then became Swamp and then Rain Forrest. Then, with devastating climate shifts, the area became the Sahara Desert. One could research miles and miles of the Sahara Desert and not see any evidence of life, or even past evidence of an ocean. With this in mind, and knowing that Mars once had an Atmosphere, and with increasing evidence of Ocean erosion - the possibility is looking better and better that some form of life once existed on Mars. Perhaps we will eventually find skeletons as advanced as the Whale skeletons we are now finding in the Sahara Desert.

SteamPunk Live!: A Retrofuturist Dream

RE/Search Publications (V Vale) has been printing unique and Progressive works for several years. One of my favorites by RE/Search is Modern Primitives by V. Vale and Andrea Juno. “Modern Primitives is the Bible of Body Modification, including tattoo, piercing, and scarification.”

Recently, with the emergence of “Steampunk” from Cyberpunk, Victorian Era inspiration and other quaint modalities of Fantasy – RE/Search has published: SteamPunk Live!: A Retrofuturist Dream. Personally, I haven’t picked up this latest gem yet. However, I have enjoyed much that has come from the progressive RE/Search minds. Worth a look.

Life as an Art Project - Esoteric Thought: Part I

Going back about 10 to 25 years ago, I was pushing the envelope every way I possibly could. I saw Life as an Art Project – and “Reality” as something fixed in parameters only to those who allowed restrictions, dogmatic structure and Social Programming to block out Potential and Possibilities with the ever present gossamer curtain hinted at within various Esoteric Orders (and richly illustrated in the movie: The Matrix). A fan of Socrates, Dr. Timothy Leary, Terence McKenna; and the fantastic mindset of: Think for Yourself & Question Everything. How can one be truly honest with the MultiVerse if one does not Question Everything. Freedom, is seeing Potential. Thank you Dr. Michio Kaku (and many modern Theoretical Scientists) for keeping the expansion of the “Mind” an important aspect of finding “Reality” – and finding our True Nature. From Quantum Mechanics to Multiple Dimensions and Multiple Universes… From Esoteric levels of formulation and Enlightenment; from Mystery Schools and Mothman Madness to new and emerging patterns of Thought…

I haven’t changed my position over the years. One still needs to push the boundaries. What is “Art”? What is “Reality”..? If you answer these questions too quickly, put more thought into it. I have changed the process I use. My Motto and Lifestyle use to be: “Wild Times and Wild Days”. I have had several glimpses behind the Curtain. Oz is exceedingly a bizarre place. I have learned that the Wizard is as much Us, as it is that great Known Unknown – the Mystery of the Cosmos. There is a Great Riddle of the Sphinx. The Answer to the Riddle isn’t really too hard to grasp. The Path to the Answer though…

Those Artist and Thinkers that resonate with the above Mental Masturbation will understand, and keep the Flame burning. Push the Edge. Know Thyself. Know thy Art. And truly know, that a glimpse beyond the curtain is only a moment away – only an experience away…
