Art Feature *NEW* + Back Catalog: Decision Tree I, II & 33

Here’s the side-by-side of the two Decision Trees, studies in evolution, programming and nature. The first one is brand-new with pinks and purple, following a wave shape and making use of both symmetry and asymmetry. The new decision tree works well both vertically and horizontally. Once again, both of these are available in a varietyContinue reading “Art Feature *NEW* + Back Catalog: Decision Tree I, II & 33”

*NEW* Art: Deco Botanical “Sugarcane – Saccharum officinarum”

Continuing on the deco botanical series, this new piece geometrically celebrates a well loved plant: “Sugarcane.” What’s especially interesting is this photo is of sugarcane growing wild in Massachusetts.It’s typically considered native to tropical regions. Please don’t flag the sugar as being invasive though! It can stay. 😆 Seriously, DNA is part sugar and salt.

The Magenta Cube: My Experience With VR

Around the time I started back in on reading GEB: an eternal golden braid by Douglas Hofstadter I experienced a very vivid sculptural dream image. And it’s not unusual for me to have unusual dreams because I actively engage my creativity in waking hours. The sculptural scenario that I saw in the dream was ofContinue reading “The Magenta Cube: My Experience With VR”

Health, Tech + Philosophy: Upgrading Medical Care In The USA

How can medical or healthcare in the USA be upgraded? By incorporating the latest non-invasive technologies, with some of the oldest concepts and philosophies. Western [colonized] medicine has been held back and stunted by nonsensical institutionalized barbarism against biology and nature. What strikes me and many others I’ve talked to, is the small mindedness ofContinue reading “Health, Tech + Philosophy: Upgrading Medical Care In The USA”

Bio + Evolution: Human Stem Cells Are Infinitely Regenerative

Human stem cells contain the potential of infinite regeneration and pluripotency means they can become any type of cell. They do so by mitotic cell division, and mitosis is asexual. So, asexual reproduction occurs within the human body. Mitosis is run by a cell cycle system; the phases are activated by advanced interactions of enzymesContinue reading “Bio + Evolution: Human Stem Cells Are Infinitely Regenerative”

Olympic Lifting & Beyond: High Performance and “The Hard Deck”

The title here is an unabashed Top Gun Maverick reference. The hard deck is the zone below 10,000-5,000 feet at which a pilot is flying close if not fatally close to the ground. I’m using the hard deck here for some humorous hyperbole, comparing this with pushing oneself in athletic performance past previous limits orContinue reading “Olympic Lifting & Beyond: High Performance and “The Hard Deck””

Biochemistry + Health: Hair Is Made Of Valuable Elements Including Stem Cells

Check out this structural diagram. Looks like something alive and important to me. Looks like a muscle fiber diagram! Perhaps because hair contains nucleic acid and mitochondrial DNA. And DNA is some of the most advanced technology around. Hair is no more dead than the soil. It’s composed of fibrous keratin, carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogenContinue reading “Biochemistry + Health: Hair Is Made Of Valuable Elements Including Stem Cells”
