“What worries you, masters you.”
— John Locke


Man is the measure of all things, of the reality of those which are, and of the unreality of those which are not.

Intertwined Cosmos!

Behold this mesmerizing image of the Antennae galaxies, situated approximately 62 million light-years from our own planet. Known scientifically as NGC 4038/NGC 4039, these interacting galaxies were first observed by William Herschel in 1785. Their entanglement is the result of a cosmic collision that began more than 100 million years ago. This ongoing celestial event has ignited a flurry of star formation as dust and gas merge within the galaxies' entwined magnetic fields.

Many massive young stars have already completed their evolutionary journey, exploding as supernovas in mere millions of years. The Antennae galaxies earned their name from the resemblance of their streaming stars and dust to an insect's delicate feelers.

This captivating image is a composite, skillfully blending data from the Chandra X-ray Observatory (blue), the Hubble Space Telescope (gold and brown), and the Spitzer Space Telescope (red).

Chandra's X-ray portrayal in shades of blue reveals vast clouds of searing hot interstellar gas, enriched with elements from the supernova explosions of colossal stars. These element-rich gas clouds, containing oxygen, iron, magnesium, and silicon, serve as the nurseries for new generations of stars and planets. The intense points of light indicate material being drawn into black holes or neutron stars – remnants of supernovas.

In vivid red, Spitzer's infrared data unveils warm dust clouds aglow from the heat of newly born stars. The most luminous of these clouds mark the overlapping regions of the two galaxies. Hubble's imagery, in gold and white, highlights the elder stars and star-forming regions, while the brown filaments represent cosmic dust. Hubble's optical images allow us to observe star clusters, appearing as faint celestial objects.

“Nothing great in the world has been accomplished without passion.”
G.W.F. Hegel


Before your soul descended to this world, it was determined she would succeed. If not in this lifetime, then in another, or yet another—eventually she will fulfill her entire mission.
And in each lifetime, she will move further ahead.
It was this knowledge that conceived her.
It was this inspiration that brought the world to be.
It is this vision of her success
that lies at the essence of all things."

“Shifting our allegiances from the outer to the inner life begins with a kind of clearing work. In order to discern our own voice from the collective (or what I like to call Other People’s Information), we need to have a clear container. Like draining a pool and discovering sediment and debris, our psyches can get cluttered with outer influences, and it takes patience and dedication to render it ready for new ideas. So much of the creative process is clearing this pool so we can discern what values, ideas, and instincts are native to our own experience.”

“The awareness that shines through your lens of individuality is the awareness that shines through all lenses of individuality. You are the Being behind all individuals, the awareness within and beyond all things. You know this in spirit. To know this while in individual form is to be conscious.”
