So many symbols

so much time

28 Jul 2006

Dedicated to Lana Wachowski


sine, folded

Christian fish symbol
a simple, self-amplifying system, which resonates to the right. blue shift. appolonian reign.

minus sine, folded

Darwin fish
another simple, self-amplifying system, which resonates to the left. red shift. dionysian reign.

together, sine and -sine unfold

Christian and Darwin fish nose to nose forming a horizontal spiral
getting somewhere, but still an infinite spiral along only one dimension.

in need of a tangent

yin yang symbol
a different view of the same spiral, possibly more sustainable from this angle, yet still bound to only one dimension.

periodic tangent

Neo, crucified, in the movie, The Matrix
the inevitable pulsar breaks free of x for a peaceful flash of a moment. as artemis slays dionysus in sacrifice, there is new awareness for apollo. yellow/green/gold shift. a blank new white slate. yet, the moment is brief; the spiral continues.


a Kandinsky painting
perhaps someday we’ll get here and understand where ‘here’ is. Or, perhaps we need not understand, but simply be.
