*Stellar Sphere*

Stellar Sphere

A human being is part of the whole, called by us "Universe," a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole [of] nature in its beauty.

~Albert Einstein, 1950


For Those Open to Awareness:

The Story of Stuff: Do you ever wonder what lies beneath it all? Or how our consumption may impact the world around us? With over 1.5 million viewers this very informative eye opening video will give you all the facts and more. There are some alarming details that you may not know, but should. Please, take the time to watch this video and pass it on to others who may benefit from it as well.

and while I'm on the subject...........

Chris Jordan's
Running the Numbers Series: (Once on website, click "Running the Numbers" to see pictures) Each image portrays a specific quantity of something: fifteen million sheets of office paper (five minutes of paper use); 106,000 aluminum cans (thirty seconds of can consumption) and so on. "This project visually examines these vast and bizarre measures of our society, in large intricately detailed prints assembled from thousands of smaller photographs. The underlying desire is to emphasize the role of the individual in a society that is increasingly enormous, incomprehensible, and overwhelming."

I really wish that I could see this exhibit in person, so that I may fully comprehend how colossal the numbers really are. Some of you may not be the type to take information of this sort to heart but it truly affects me in a big way; the most that I can do is make sure that you are exposed to the same information in hopes that it may have a similar influence. Thanks in advance for taking the time......and please let me know your thoughts on these ideas, I'd love to hear them.
