rub your eyes,
get out of bed!

dark matter blob confounds experts
This composite image shows the distribution of dark matter, galaxies, and hot gas in the core of the merging galaxy cluster Abell 520, formed from a violent collision of massive galaxy clusters. Starlight from galaxies is indicated in orange. Green indicates hot gas, and blue indicates mass, most of which is dark matter.
From an article by Alan Boyle on CosmicLog… I love finding examples that remind us that there’s so much more to “this world” than we may see with our eyes or hear with our ears…
“…Studies have shown that we can see only about 15 percent of the matter in the universe. Most of the matter that exists around us can’t be seen directly, but can be detected only by its gravitational effect. Scientists don’t know what dark matter is, but they suspect it’s an exotic class of subatomic particles that can interact only weakly with the kinds of matter we can see.”
I just followed my “intuition”, and the pen went on a rather wild journey across the paper, in a line that jumps and squiggles and sweeps back and forth, up and down, with WORDS interspersed.
I hope the resolution on this image is high enough that those who are interested can make out the words and follow their progression…
One thing I understand is that they can really be read in any sequence, carrying different meanings, all of which are accurate.
I’m not sure if this sketch is completed yet… Every day seems to fill in a little more of the “gaps”!
Second in a Series of Four.
From a 25-year-old sketchbook of mine…
Change and difference are both good.
Progress is inevitable.
“Change and Difference” is a series of sketches I did in 1986, when I was trying to make sense of my feelings and intuitions about life.
I’m only now able to even attempt to put words to the images…
I’ll post these sketches in four strips over the next week.
Progress is Good.
