I like to believe that science is becoming mainstream. It should have never been something that sort of geeky people do and no one else thinks about. Whether or not, it will always be what geeky people do. It should, as a minimum, be what everybody thinks about because science is all around us.

Don’t give up your power to think!

You may care not to admit it, but we all spend time thinking about our relationship to the universe, and all things that are connected with that. However, because of divergent forces inside each of us, you may spend time running from yourself.

Some of the ways you run from yourself are becoming focused on vicarious experiences, such as reading a mystery novel or playing computer games. You might also join a religion or political movement.

These acts involve little to no risk since there is little chance of your connections with others becoming an objectification of who you really are. There is much evidence to show that running from self-behavior is the result of an attitude managed by the dominant side of your brain.

You’re probably beginning to think, “. . . now we are going to get some of this right brain/left brain b— s—!” Don’t worry, no brain theory this time.

However, call it what you may (left brain/right brain, head/heart, male/female sides, yin/yang, intellect/intuition), we all have exhibited behavior based on attitudes of self-associated with the “head” — analytical, systematic, logical, objective, or intellectual. In our culture, organized groups (institutions) reinforce this behavior. You are told how “smart” you are; how “orderly” you are; how “logical” you are. You are considered well grounded — what better for group identity!

On the other hand, if your behavior is considered coming from the “heart” — impulsive, artistic, romantic, creative, daring or intuitive — your behavior is looked upon as being unrealistic, unreliable, unstable and unfocused. “She’s not a responsible child, but she’s happy and a lot of fun,” people would say.

The point is that an enormous number of forces exist inside of you between the head and the heart, which are struggling for control of yourself. These forces can cause you to take the path of least resistance — allowing one side to win over the other. For instance, the dominate side will choose between opposites in a two-dimensional relationship. One can represent harmony, the other conflict; the two basic forms of human interaction. Selecting between these two opposites results in zero communication and the desolation of self.

On the other hand, you can take the path least traveled — pushing the head and heart together, not allowing one side to win. The result of pushing harmony and conflict together is the creation of a third dimension, which represents autonomous and creative communication among others and the true development of self. By allowing one side to win over the other, you draw a line between “what you think” and the “power to think.” The power to think only exists in this third dimension.

Left Brain, Right Brain Magic:

While sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles. Now, while doing this, draw the number “6” in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction, and there’s nothing you can do about it. Why? It’s a mystery!

Connecting
the past 
a Victor radio
in the middle
of a sunset
the present 
using
a vector

vortex
the future
creating
a whirling
work of art 
a visual mass
where the sound
parted like
a note divide
in search of itself.

Generosity is nothing else than a craze to possess.
All which I abandon, all which I give,
I enjoy in a higher manner through the fact that I give it away.
To give is to enjoy possessively the object which one gives.

— Jean-Paul Sartre
