- “The judgment of the intellect is, at best, only the half of truth, and must, if it be honest, also come to an understanding of its inadequacy. The dynamic principle of fantasy is play, a characteristic also of the child, and as such it appears inconsistent with the principle of serious work. But without this playing with fantasy no creative work has ever yet come to birth. The debt we owe to the play of imagination is incalculable. It is therefore short-sighted to treat fantasy, on account of its risky or unacceptable nature, as a thing of little worth.” The Psychology of Individuation, CG Jung

- If, during the long course of ages and under varying conditions of life, organic beings vary at all in the several parts of their organization, and I think this cannot be disputed; if there be, owing to the high geometric powers of increase of each species, at some age, season or year, a severe struggle for life, and this certainly cannot be disputed; then, considering the infinite complexity of the relations of all organic beings to each other and to their conditions of existence, causing an infinite variety in structure, constitution, and habits, to be advantageous to them, I think it would be a most extraordinary fact if no variation ever had occurred useful to each being’s own welfare, in the same way as so many variations have occurred useful to man. But if variations useful to any organic being do occur, assuredly individuals thus characterized will have the best chance of being preserved in the struggle for life; and from the strong principle of inheritance they will tend to produce offspring similarly characterized. This principle of preservation, I have called, for the sake of brevity, Natural Selection. [Charles Darwin (1859) On the Origin of Species]
- “It is essential to such a government, that it be derived from the great body of the society, not from an inconsiderable proportion, or a favored class of it; otherwise a handful of tyrannical nobles, exercising their oppressions by a delegation of their powers, might aspire to the rank of republicans, and claim for their government the honorable title of republic.” James Madison
- All the property that is necessary to a Man, for the Conservation of the Individual and the Propagation of the Species, is his natural Right, which none can justly deprive him of: But all Property superfluous to such purposes is the Property of the Publick, who, by their Laws, have created it, and who may therefore by other laws dispose of it, whenever the Welfare of the Publick shall demand such Disposition. He that does not like civil Society on these Terms, let him retire and live among Savages. He can have no right to the benefits of Society, who will not pay his Club towards the Support of it. -Benjamin Franklin

- Arguably The Greatest "Lion Turns Into Naked Lady" Scene Ever [NSFW] September 20, 2014What makes this scene from the 1986 movie Amazons so wonderful isn't just the completely ridiculous visual effects (and sound effects) when the lion turns into an naked assassin. It's also the amazing dialogue, including the villain's final threat to turn her into a rug. Read more...

- Another Explanation For The Perplexing Archeology Of Indiana Jones September 19, 2014As an archeologist, Indiana Jones' behavior was unimpressive. Artifacts were broken, library floors unceremoniously smashed, and nary a scientific journal was in sight. But, is there an alternate explanation for his frankly egregious professional conduct?Read more...

Continuing apace with casual photographs taken on the iPhone and in these instances manipulated through Google editing FX and Photoshop. My G+ account is set-up to automatically upload my iPhone photos into a private album. From this album I can initiate an actual work flow in the cloud. I suppose this could be done with Facebook’s tools too, except I have gravitated toward and resonated much more strongly with the community of photographers and visual artists on Google+. This community is much more accessible on G+.
