Post Election Reads

Rebekka Lien


The election was horrific for me. The days after, probably for a week I woke up depressed, I would want to cry for no reason and also the spiritual atmosphere was bad…for example at Mcdonald’s when I asked for mustard, the staff said they had none. 5 minutes later he ran after me with two mustard condiments and said he forgot they had mustard. Everyone seemed cloudy. Well today it rained here in LA and I can say the atmosphere has lifted.

These two books have helped me to glean encouraging words into my spirit.

The Arts Mechanical

This is a sort of search and discover newsletter of my findings of things that may relate to technology in one way or another.  It might be the latest gosh wow tech, it might be something as old of humanity.  It might relate to science large or small.  It might be art for art’s sake.  Or somebody just doing something funky.

Geometry, Metallurgy and… Success

Erratic Expeditions

Suppose we were all points in this complex infinite dimensional plane. The relationship between two persons would be described by a straight line. All interconnected relationships would lie on a common plane. Now, think about the dimensions of this plane. 2-D, 3-D, 4-D…?

In the frame of one point, there could certainly be a limited number realistic line segments. But as we zoom out of the picture and take a holistic view from a detached frame of reference, the certain becomes ever so uncertain, ever so ambiguous. We fail to identify the lines. We fail to locate ourselves.

The perils of our attachment seems to give a false perception that we can determine our trajectory, the line segments we wish to follow, the milestone we wish to accomplish in the process. And hence we find it hard to reconcile to our limitations that our attachment underwrites, that we are ultimately…
