A Moment

There are those moments in life when you are terror struck in a situation and
hoping that you are in a dream -- then you slap your face begging, please wake up.

And then there are those moments of pain and solitude that you simply realize that all of this existence IS just a dream and you wonder how long it will be before you wake up.

Mathematical Spam

I just received some spam from a couple of sources - It seems that folks are thinking somewhat in our terms.

The first bit was some political spam from Al Franken:

Kaz ,
I love math. Always have. Sometimes, when I visit schools in Minnesota, I prove the Pythagorean Theorem, right there on the chalkboard.

But here’s some math I don’t love. Democrats have to defend 23 Senate seats this year. Republicans only have to defend 10. And if they take four of ours, they take control of the Senate.

Democrats are facing a real algebra problem.

X = President Romney. Y = a Republican Senate. X + Y = Z. Solve for Z.

The second one is some regular spam:

Higher Salary + New Job = A Happier You 
(there was a link on the text but I removed it)

My Apology

 If I were to wait for my art to be good enough, I would never make one piece.

The Monastic Path

Here is a mathematical visual poem titled "The Monastic Path" the mathematical structure used is an Orthogonal Space Poem. The original image was shot at Tongdosa Monastery in South Korea in a room where monks perform their "Kyol Chae" a retreat where they meditate 100 days from 8 to 12 hours per day. The equation describes a full range of concepts but if we were to focus on having the equation express a value of near-infinite Lucidity then the ego would be near zero. The equation was inspired by the Tongdosa monastery monk seen in the imagery who I found to exhibit extreme confidence with no ego. I have never experienced this from anyone before this time.

Catalog Page For The Rhythm Of Structure

I had the pleasure to be a part of, "The Rhythm of Structure" poetry event in NYC in the summer of 2010. The John Sims project has had many branches and events over the last three years and is having a closing symposium at the Antioch College in November of 2011. Here is the page for the catalog that I originally made for John. The page shows four mathematical poems of which the bottom one is a substitution poem made by solving the previous two poems for the word "thinking" and setting both of those poems equal to each other and then solving for "Hell."


Here is a "Orthogonal Space Poem" titled Warmonger.

The New Culture

This is a most significant time in human history where cultural identity is rapidly moving from geographic locations to physically disparate cadres bound by beliefs and passions.
