Random 31: Two is company

Neither movable,

Nor immovable.

It’s the us time

which gives me strength,

to drift alone.

The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too.~ Ernest Hemingway,

A walk in the garden: chasing colours – blue and green

People observe the colors of a day at its beginnings and ends, but to me it’s quiet clear that a day merges through a multitude of shades and intonations, with each passing moment.~ Markus Zusak

Although I don’t know much about anything, I know that I have a story. I know that it is not over. There are shades and shadows of adventures and people and wild new places … ~ Emily Barr

But we are running out of colors,” said Mr. Violet, intervening.
“That cannot be the case,” said Mr. white. “There are an infinite number of colors.”
“But there are not that many names,” said Miss Taupe.
“That is not possible. A color must have a name.”
“We can find only one hundred and three names for green before the color becomes noticeably either blue or yellow,” said Miss Crimson.
“But the shades are endless!”
“Nevertheless, the names are not.”
“This is a problem that must be solved. Add it to the list, Miss Brown. We must name very possible shade.”
~Terry Pratchett

Life in colour: purple

Like a snake sheds its skin, we are capable of getting rid of assembled habits, creating space to call matters into question. Instead of the Shakespearian ” To be or not to be ” we could favor ” to become or not to become”. By “becoming”, we challenge the range of possibilities in our life and go beyond the merely “being”. We can retreat, then, from the imprisonment of a deadly routine, acquire an identity and develop our personality. ~ Erik Pevernagie

People die from lack of shared empathy and affinity. By establishing social connectedness, we give hope a chance and the other can become heaven. ~ Erik Pevernagie

Symmetry & Human Psychology

But why are we attracted to symmetry?

Why do we human beings delight in seeing perfectly round planets through the lens of a telescope and six-sided snowflakes on a cold winter day?

The answer must be partly psychological.

I would claim that symmetry represents order, and we crave order in this strange universe we find ourselves in.

The search for symmetry, and the emotional pleasure we derive when we find it, must help us make sense of the the seasons and the reliability of friendships.

Symmetry is also economy.
Symmetry is simplicity.”
Alan Lightman (American physicist, writer, and social entrepreneur)
