Since I was first introduced to the ART of SYSTEMS ANALYSiS on an IBM System/360 64K CoreStore Mainframe, which was the size of a small block of flats, during my initial training as an Air Traffic Controller with the Ministry of Aviation at the School of Air Traffic Control in Hampshire, UK; and here we are NOW, as computing moves to the sub-atomic level, contemplating the development of an IBM device that can unlock THE MOST SOPHISTICATED forms of modern computer cyber-security. …

In 1963, just a year after Watson and Crick ...

received their Nobel Prize for unravelling the structure of  DNA, two other

Cambridge scientists were preparing for a second revolution. A PhD student

called Fred Vine and his supervisor, Dr Drummond Matthews, had found the

crucial evidence that the Earth’s surface is not fixed and immutable, but is

created more or less continuously at ridges in the middle of the ocean.

The publication of their paper in Nature, 53 years ago, under the slightly

arcane title “Magnetic Anomalies over Ocean Ridges”, is widely held as

marking the arrival of plate tectonics – the grand unifying theory that

underpins all of modern geology. This subject of plate tectonics had

become a foundation stone of Rex Beddis's SENSE of PLACE series of…

Understanding Natural Hierarchies...

through The Great Matrix of Big History

 For while there is no Great Chain of Being, as the medievals understood

 it, there is most definitely a Great Matrix to which all beings belong.

 The existentialist in you may stay awake at night pondering how big the

 universe is, but it is perhaps more instructive to pay attention to how

 small entities can be. The known universe is as many orders of magnitude

 smaller than us as it is larger. As physicist Richard Feynman famously

 observed...



 there is a lot of room at the bottom.”



 A MATRIX is a structure, medium, or environment in which something

 develops. The Great Matrix is …

THE uniqueness of ...

  THE group of islands off the northwest shores of the

  European Sub-Continent of Asia, which today constitute

  the nations of the UK and Eire, stems from the fact that

  Cornwall, as the centre of tin-mining for that group of

  islands, was the epicentre of the development of the

  Bronze Age, because [IT] was only one of less than

  10 places on earth where tin has ever been mined. 



  Mining existed in Cornwall from the days of stone age

  man and dates back to between 1000 and 2000 B.C.

  when Cornwall is thought to have been visited by metal

  traders from the eastern Mediterranean. They named

  Britain, the 'Cassiterides' - 'Tin Islands'; and [IT] was of

  course the Romans who named Britain, Britannia for the

  self same reason that the Latin name means '…

LEST WE FORGET



LET US NOT FORGET • as the 100th Anniversary celebrations of the founding

of the RAF recede into memory and the 100th Anniversary of the ending of

the Great War looms large • the words which Winston Churchill wrote in his

book Painting as a Pastime ...



"Whether you feel that your soul is pleased by the conception or contemplation of harmonies or that your mind is stimulated by the aspect of magnificent problems or whether you are content to have fun in trying to observe and depict the jolly things you see, the vistas of possiblity are limited only by the shortness of life. Every day you may make progress; every day you may be fruitful, yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the…

FULLER’S CRITICAL PATH

[IT] IS a most humbling thought to realise that 99.99% of ALL that ME•WE

NOW K•N•O•W about our relationship with Spaceship Earth and [IT]s interrelationship with the MAJESTY of the KOSMOS, has happened during the last three-score years and ten of my own life here on our pale blue dot, and that more specifically THE uniqueness of THE group of islands off the northwest shores of the European Sub-Continent of Asia, which today constitute the nations of the UK and Eire, stems from the fact that Cornwall, as the centre of tin-mining for that group of islands, was the epicentre of the development of the Bronze Age, because [IT] was only one of 10 places on earth where tin has ever been mined. So let those that subscribe to THE MINDSIGHT of THE curious case of [BE]ing BRITISH ~  NOW rejoice in the fact that the so-called BREXIT looms large and pay homage to that man of ultimate wisdom from across the seas, who IS absolutely responsible for that which we all know as…

“[IT] IS ONE THING to study the texts ..

  OR to DO various practices or come on a retreat to learn the Dharma
  tradition, but the most important kind of communion is to experience it;
  to embody it and discover it in your own heart, mind and being. Of course,
  the essence of the Buddhas teaching is that of liberation, that the heart
  and mind can be free wherever we are and under whatever circumstance.
  To be liberated in this human incarnation means also to recognise that
  LIFE [IT]self IS this CREATIVE ACT and YOU ARE this CREATIVE ACT.
 
  EveryTHING IS BORN out of EMPTINESS. Through creative spirit, we can

EXPRESS Book Review: The Colour of Time

4/5 stars



    The Colour of Time by Dan Jones and Marina Amaral

         

This book, a collaboration between historian Dan Jones and Brazilian artist

Marina Amaral, takes 200 photographs from the century between 1850

and 1960 and renders them into colour with the aim of giving them greater

immediacy. It is a century of empires and revolutions, cataclysmic social

change and great technological progress.

Images from Russia before and after the revolution share pages with figures

before and after the American Civil War. Politicians and royalty alternate

with soldiers and peasants, labourers and assassins, the living and the…

A new kind of time

                                           

      

   The emphasis that science has placed on one particular form of

   observation has made any kind of unified view quite impossible.

   As said here before and often complained of elsewhere, the dualistic

   view is self-justifying. It makes a (quite spurious) claim to "objectivity"

   in such a way as to exclude human experience and knowing from any

   possibility of delivering the "truth"The objectivity is spurious because

   that choice of perspective is a subjective one. Perhaps more importantly,

   it is quite simply out of touch with the scientific nature of reality.



   Remember, we 
have used science itself both in

  our method and our …
