Personal Reflections: Art in the Universe and Your Skull

BIG: Valley of dessert in Iran

These images are not

abstract paintings

or from anyone’s imagination.

They are actually

Nasa satellite photos

of the earth I found online.

I have paired them here with

microscopic shots

of structures within the brain

from  a new book

you don’t have to be

a neuroscientist to appreciate.

Ever read an astronomy book

and pondered the vastness of the universe

while taking a peek at another book on microbes

or something else invisible to the naked eye?

Do it!

The beauty and artistry of the the big and small blew my mind.

BIG: glacier icecap

tiny: axon scaffolding proteins

BIG: West fjords

tiny: blood vessels in cerebral cortex

BIG: dry streambeds in Jordan

tiny: axons

BIG: whirlpool cloud between Spain and Morocco

COOL: New book by Carl Schoonover: PORTRAITS OF THE MIND

The planet is gorgeously made,

and you and your lovely

neurons are too.

Peace to you right where you are.

    Thank you! You totally get it, Luciane. That is exactly the point I was hoping to convey visually: the universe and all of us were created masterfully and perfectly to be loved.
