Rhythm is Key

For those following the development of the Great Sphere and the Chromatic Spiral here is the latest development.

What happens when Key dictates Rhythm? What if a Tone equals a Crotchet and a Semitone equals a Quaver?
To visualize this the piano keys are set out in a circle like a clock. Starting at 12 o’clock and playing only the white notes, Section 1 shows the major scale and its clockwise (the Standard Bell Pattern) and anti-clockwise rhythms.
Section 2 starts at 9 o’clock revealing the minor scale and rhythms (Ashanti first).
Section 3 and 4 explore the Pentatonic scales and rhythms by playing the black notes from 6 o’clock (Major Pentatonic scale and Son Clave rhythm first) and 3 o’clock (Minor Pentatonic scale).
Section 5 returns to 12 o’clock and tries to make sense of everything we’ve heard and mashes it all together.

2015 2nd Solstice and O moon Blessing

Another Earth Solstice.
Congratulations to those who made it. Farewell to those who returned to the source and welcome those from. Blessings to you all.
If you are traveling, especially around the time of the full moon (Xmas O moon), a white light of protection to you.
As you celebrate with friends and family, remember that it is love that connects you. The only present that really means anything is that you are present. Remember how you present yourself and also what you represent.
When you feast, remember that you are sacred. Allow only the best food to nourish you, straight from Gaia, untouched by toxic sprays and machines that alter its holy form for the lust for money. Your body is a sacred temple; keep it clean by what you eat and drink so you can experience time in the clearest way. Thank Gaia for the leaf, root, flower, fruit or water and offer it to the Most High first and enjoy the pleasure of eating on behalf of.
Remember, all life is sacred. Encourage, nourish and protect.
Allow better things into your sphere of living. Let it crowd out the other stuff. Sometimes the other stuff will try to hurt you as it leaves. That is why it must leave. Let it go.

Let’s put our energy into Star Peace

As you live, in other words, as you experience time and space, remember that it is an illusion and that there is only ever Here and Now.  Spend some time in stillness, in quiet, in nature, in chaos. Feel it all. Spend some time exploring and watching the world. Go out in the weather and look for life. Watch people. Look at faces. Watch them play, dance, eat and talk. Watch them being still and watching you. Share smiles, words, hugs. Walk under trees. Watch birds in the rain. Look for footprints in the snow. Watch the moon, sun and stars as they rise, set and hide behind clouds.
Breathe.
As we journey to the next solstice remember the words of the Great Teacher.

Arthur’s Pass 4D

Put on your 4D glasses now.

It’s been a while since I posted some 3D/4D photos. I recently went on a retreat for the Equinox Eclipse Portal to Arthur’s Pass (pueleaz mau ‘puels! yfnos). I didn’t have my 3D cameras but took some snaps on a phone. The quality isn’t great but flying was an opportunity to get shots of the islands from above.

Why are they 4D? Because the images used to give the 3D effect where actually taken seconds apart; TIME is considered the 4th dimension. A 3D picture is usually taken at the same time from slightly different perspectives; each photo representing the two different perspectives of the eyes. As I flew, one photo was taken for the left eye and 2 seconds later another was taken for the right eye. Unless the subject is completely still during the two photos there will be some evidence of time passing. Consider the images of the water flowing. Another example is the photographer and the newly weds. His camera moves from his chest to his eye between shots. The rest of the picture is a convincing 3D photo but his camera moving causes visual dissonance. This can then be played with by blocking the view of one of your eyes with your hand. Now move it to the other eye and back and forth. It creates the illusion of time passing in a simple loop.

The other effect of taking shots from something moving as fast as a plane is that you get more perspective between the eyes. Things at a distance such as that from a flying plane don’t seem to have much depth to them; everything just looks ‘far away’. With a little time to give a little more distance between shots for the left and right eyes a large amount of perspective is gained. If you think the mountains look miniature you can work out why. The two photos taken to make the one image are the same distance apart as the eyes of a giant would be.

Multiverse Navigation

A friend of mine recently told me that she loves the thought that somewhere in the multiverse there is another her recycling, biking everywhere, eating healthy food, and so on.

The Multiverse Theory is that there is an infinite number of universes, one for every possible scenario, and you are in one of them. For example, somewhere there is a you who isn’t reading this.

6 cube

Most people are unaware that we have the power to live in these alternate realities. We steer our own course through the multiverses with EVERY choice we make.

We visit these places by using our imagination. When we are imagining we are tapping into a universe where that particular scenario applies.

The friend I mentioned is choosing a universe where she will be unwell. Next time you have a choice to make think of which universe you want to experience.

2013 December Pilgrimage to the Pinnacles Morning Panorama (2D)

AM Panorama small

As the sun rises in the East the full moon sets in the West.

We finally got the shot. Low cloud threatened to hide the moon from us but a floating window revealed it to us.

Some 3D photos of the pilgrimage to come soon.

Pilgrimage to the Pinnacles

You are welcome to join us on a journey to the Pinnacles to celebrate November’s full moon. We will leave the car park at 11am on Sunday. The track to the hut is about 3 hours. We will rest at the hut and leave at 6pm to climb up to the Pinnacles for the sunset. Our photographer will capture a panorama of the sun and the full moon in the sky at the same time. We will return to the hut to sleep. At 5am we will return to the summit for another panoramic photo of the sunrise and full-moonset. We will have breakfast at the hut then return to the carpark when we are all ready.
Accomodation is $15 for an adult, $7.50 for child. Tickets at the DOC HQ on the road to the carpark. Cooking utensils and gas stoves are provided at the hut. Warm gear is recommended for the Summit.

The moon rises on Sunday night at 7.43pm and the sun sets at 8.06pm
