Replacements:   }"In recent years, many great art museums have decided to open up their collections, putting online huge troves of images that showcase the masterpieces hanging on their walls. They’ve also made available free art catalogues and books, letting you learn all about important artists and styles of painting. Now, university presses and libraries are starting to follow suit, giving readers free access to books from their archives. We’ve tried to keep you posted on these cultural developments here on Open Culture. But you’ve likely missed a great resource or two. To make sure you stay up to speed, we offer a roundup. “   }The Virgin and Child with St. Anne and the Infant St. John the Baptist ('The Burlington House Cartoon'), c. 1499-1500, charcoal on canvas, 141.5 x 104.6 cm, National Gallery, London. In this daringly monumental drawing the entangled figures of St. Mary and St. Anne with Jesus and St. John the Baptist dissolve into the canvas, the drawing unfinished. St. Anne points upwards, a reference to Jesus’ destiny, while St. John the Baptist gestures a blessing, indicating his future role in the life of Christ. Improved with age the scene now appears like a mysterious vision, incomplete in places, a strange landscape looming behind the figures, lifelike in their rendering. The technical term cartoon refers to the intention with such large drawings to transfer the image to another canvas for the purpose of painting a final image.  The survival of this work however can be attributed to there being no final painting resulting from it, and it stands as the only surviving large-scale drawing by Leonardo.    } On her head, she wears a Neurosky EEG headset -- the same device used in the Necomimi emotion-displaying cat ears . It monitors her alpha, beta, delta, and theta brainwaves and her eye movement. This information is fed into Processing, where it's translated into sound waves in real time, which are then fed into the speakers. (Related stories: Mind-controlled quadcopter takes to the air; Mind-controlled robot tail lets you wag when happy.) To calibrate the EEG to her thoughts, Park associated five different emotions with different people -- anger, sadness, hatred, desire, and happiness. As she practiced, she would adjust the audio output of these thoughts to create a specific pattern to play across the surface of the water. Park isn't the first to use EEG to create sound from thoughts. Last year, Japanese musician Masaki Batoh used EEG to transform the brainwaves of earthquake survivors into haunting melodies as a sort of therapy. Park's goal was different, yet similar -- to find stillness in emotion.   } is a free color tool providing information about any color.

Artist Yasmina Alaoui and photographer Marco Guerra love to tantalize their audience.  In their life-sized photographic series “
one thousand and one dreams”, statuesque bodies appear frozen in time, covered from head to toe in meticulously detailed, contemporary Arabic Henna patters.  Captivated by the realism and sculptural quality of each human form, the viewer becomes lost in an illusion.  Each artwork begins with a black and white nude photograph by Guerra.  Layers of Alaoui’s complex ink drawings are then fused with the portrait, with breathtaking results.  Originally from Chile and Morocco respectively, the couple has been collaborating since 2005, and have successfully been exhibited and collected internationally.     }See with new eyes, listen with new ears, feel a renewed artistic respect for what is possible. This may entail abandoning many of the most comfortable and habitual patterns of creativity the artist has become accustomed to. The process of truly living the artist life and reshaping the creative wheel can mean abandoning everything that feels safe and familiar.. Artistic freedom inspires a loss of control, a reordering of the visionary core within. This loss of control is not of the artist’ sanity, ethics, or morals but of one’s conformity to the consensus entrapments.   }color theory – the correct version.

There are actually some links on the right side of the page – not that you could tell – which lead to further art videos from these people. Keywords: experimental, avant-garde, etc. 2016 Update: this site does not work in the way that it used to do. We’re working on replacement links for it.

Jan Brennenstuhl aka Brenna, born 1988 in the Eastern-part of Berlin, Germany, grew up in between mortal remains of the real socialism and multicultural, subcultural ideas of squatting and creative designing of public space. Influenced by those two contrary mindsets, he started photographing street art in 2006 to document this breaking new, but totally temporary form of urban art. “For years now, also I’m documenting street artists in Berlin and other European metropolises like Paris, London, Barcelona and Madrid and just set up my yet fragmentary photo-portfolio! Check it out. “The resulting photo-series gives another view on street art and graffiti by focusing not on the artwork but on the artist.

By the mid-12th century she was serving as the mother superior of the monastery she had founded at Rupertsberg on the banks of the Rhine River. At a very early age Saint Hildegard had begun experiencing regular holy visions that continued throughout her lifetime. In addition to being a nun with mystical and prophetic insights, she was a true pre-Renaissance polymath: political and social moralist, musical composer, poet, naturalist, herbalist, gemologist, author of medicinal and botanical texts, and playwright. She even penned the earliest morality play.   }a very good brief bio of St. Francis.    }this page is easier to read. it describes the Templars less academically, and more simply, and reminds us that they were monastic fighting men, and called the Poor Knights of Christ. Miracles accompanied the original Knights Templar, especially on the field of battle.     }St. Francis of Assisi abandoned a life of luxury for a life devoted to Christianity after reportedly hearing the voice of God, who commanded him to rebuild the Christian church and live in poverty. He is the patron saint for ecologists.   }on this page Hazrat Khwajah 'Abd al-Khaliq Ghujduwani is shown to be in the lineage of the Naqshbandi/Mujaddidi, who are thought by some to be the same as the historical Khwajagan, or Masters Of Wisdom.   }photos and notes on the 2 adjacent cathedrals of Salamanca, Spain.

In English, it shows the 8 principles of Abd Al-Khaliq Ghujduwani of Bokhara, which are similar to the ones that Gurdjieff taught and which Bennett found important. Bennett was concerned that Gurdjieff teachings, and The Work generally, have respectable historical precedents.  }descriptions of miracles of St. Francis. These are true. We have read the book, The Little Flowers, about St. Francis, just as we have read books about everyone else in this category. However, the accounts of the appearances of “apparitions” , may have been redacted by Catholics to make sure that the divine appearances would be figures from the Catholic versions of the various New Testament figures and stories. That is, we will never know for sure what St. Francis saw, unless, of course, we see it/one/them ourselves.   }the straightforward bio of St. Bernard. He was influential in the lives of the 3 greatest European women of the age, and provided crucial support to the Order of Knights Templar, which won the Holy Land back from the Infidels (for a while). His support of the Crusades was indispensable at the time.  Whether or not he was otherwise a saint or a hero of the 12th century, we invite you the reader to decide.   }a detailed biography of St. Francis.
drawing or painting of him is unlikely; the one on the Wiki page is more likely.  }here, a straightforward  biography of St. Hildegard of Bingen, as she is known today. This was the first time that we learned that she is also called St. Hildegard, after reading an entire book of her prayers and visions. She is another hero of the 12thCentury, but it is hard for us to see why and how, today. Although only 800 years ago, we are challenged to see what people then considered important, whether in Europe or in Asia.   }the New World Encyclopedia’s brief bio of Blessed Hildegard.

Their romance is one of the great love stories of the 12 century.   }a photo of their tomb.    }we consider St. Bernard a hero of the 12th century as well, but can never approve of what he did to Abelard the scholar, in France. Theological or ideological differences should always be resolved through words and ideas (speeches, writings, etc.), and never through physical or social or psychological violence; this is a basic principle. St. Bernard violated that principle, and we would oppose his canonization and canonize Blessed Hildegard in his place, if we were the Pope. Similarly, his actions against the Cathars, Albigenses, and other “heretics” (people who practiced religion differently) were inappropriate, and were instances of the practice of power against others, and not of piety, humility, or service. Compare his life to St. Francis and St. Hildegard, for example.   }link for the book about the teachings  of Shams of Tabriz. This is from Powell’s bookstore, one of our most favorite bookstores.

III. Natural Mathematics. (See also II. Bucky Fuller, on the Free List .)   }The laws of harmony are based on the overtone series. The octave tone, which is the primary overtone, is the most dynamic in this series. It also has the simplest numerical ratio to the fundamental tone. The octave is the link between different kinds of periodically occurring natural phenomena, such as the orbit of the planets, the weather, colors and musical rhythms and tones. It has also been discovered in the field of molecular vibratory phenomena.  }this page gives the brief, standard definition of “music of the spheres”, and it is the modern conception of that phrase, but it is wrong. It is wrong (a) since Plato, Pythagoras, and the like, saw geometry, number, and music as being basically the same, i.e., they could have meant, the proportions of their sizes, orbital distances, from each other and the sun, rotational periods, etc.; and since (b) in ancient times, the planets, and planetary (etc.) events, produced sounds or other EM outputs that were heard as sounds in the earth’s atmosphere, at the surface where humans live. See also our previous Lists for more information about this. Also see:   }where the sounds of the sun are discussed. Of course, the “science” they use to explain the sun’s sound(vibrations, music) is ridiculous, or as one Boulder scientist said, “completely retarded”. See also   }the sun is rather obviously electrical. One website said about this video: “the most remarkable thing: an enneagram representing the way in which the internal musical vibrations of the sun interact. This image does not just "look like" an enneagram: it is an enneagram, albeit upside down.  That is, a scientific analysis of the way internal waves propagate in the sun does indeed follow Gurdjieff's diagram. These waves produce "notes", or vibrations, that reverberate throughout the solar system.”   }This is a bibliography of sources related to the Golden Section in Music, the Fine Arts, Architecture, Aesthetics, Gestalt Theory, Theory of Proportion etc. The books and other sources are described and abstracts are given for some of them. Recommended.   }page showing the divine proportion or golden section in Art and Architecture. Illustrated with examples and animations. Note that the 5-pointed star is used in famous artworks.

These links are meant for students and teachers.   }a good illustrated page on sacred geometry with several examples of it, including planetary orbits, and the layout of the Giza complex in Egypt, etc.   }By tuning the system and artificially introducing more quantum uncertainty the researchers observed that the chain of atoms acts like a nanoscale guitar string. Dr. Radu Coldea from Oxford University, who is the principal author of the paper and drove the international project from its inception a decade ago until the present, explains: "Here the tension comes from the interaction between spins causing them to magnetically resonate. For these interactions we found a series (scale) of resonant notes: The first two notes show a perfect relationship with each other. Their frequencies (pitch) are in the ratio of 1.618…, which is the golden ratio famous from art and architecture." Radu Coldea is convinced that this is no coincidence. "It reflects a beautiful property of the quantum system -- a hidden symmetry. Actually quite a special one called E8 by mathematicians, and this is its first observation in a material," he explains.   }this page shows the correct relationships between ratios, notes, and frequencies. Note that all this knowledge of music and sound and natural ratios, was known to Pythagoras, who in turn studied in Babylon, which was a center of learning in the ancient world. Highly Recommended. One of the most famous discoveries of Pythagoras, or of the Pythagorean School , is "that the chief musical intervals are expressible in simple mathematical ratios between the first four integers".

The makers of this list have also made artwork, such as murals, using the divine proportions.   }this page has a good overview of the golden ratio itself, and examples of where it occurs throughout nature.   }this page shows the basic math of phi. Ignore the non-mathematician’s remark, on that page, about the pronunciation of phi (“FEE”). No genuine mathematician or scholar would pronounce this Greek word any other way. Otherwise, this page also introduces the golden mean. The golden mean is a very important universal mathematical relationship, which occurs in many areas of life, some subtle.   }shown here the “discovery” that 1/89 in decimal form is the Fibonacci sequence itself, and, of course, 89 is the 11th Fibonacci number, 12th if you count 0 as the first term. Some expressions for Fn  have 0 as the 0th term, some start at 1. However, the authors of this page, and the authors quoted on the page, didn’t know the best expression for showing how the Fibonacci sequence is hidden in itself. This involves subtracting the carries from the decimal expansion in a certain way, and using the most exact expression for the embedded series, that is, one based on powers of 9 (as b-1, in other words) rather than 10 as shown. With 10, they make it much more difficult and inexact. Write to us for more details.   }the Fibonacci numbers are found, of course, in the so-called Pascal’s triangle.   }on this page, an attempt is made to show the spiritual aspects of the golden mean.   }page on technology in the temples of antiquity, including the golden proportion. Also shown, the antiquity of civilized humans (the Piri Reis map was drawn from knowledge of what Antarctica looked like in 4000 BC at the latest by accepted dating methods).   }In place of the time-honored conventions of mathematics, Fuller proposes that mathematical principles should be derived from experience of the natural world. If we start with real things, and make
deductions based on them, then our resulting generalizations will reflect and apply to the world in which we live. In place of dimensionless points, Fuller proposes ‘energy events’, since matter is characterized by the energy of atomic motion. Rather than a straight line, we have wave phenomenon, and a mesh of energy events would replace continuous plane. These alternative solutions lead in the direction of determining ‘nature’s coordinate system.’ The structure of nature occurs according to the requirements of minimum energy, and thus the coordinate system is a geometry of the most economical relationships between events.  Bucky’s math, synergetic and tensegritic, is also purely natural mathematics, but, since the nature that it describes is usually at the molecular level, or near to it, it is more difficult for us to recognize it as natural mathematics. See also The Free List.   }For instance, in accordance with this law, the white ray is composed of seven independent colors, in every definite sound there are seven different independent tones, in every state of man there are seven different independent sensations, furthermore, every definite form can be made up of only seven different dimensions, every mass remains at rest on the Earth only as a result of seven "reciprocal thrusts", and so on.   }natural math in music.

Each mode implicitly contains a mood and a set of motives which are specific to it, though the melodic contour of these motives overlaps extensively from mode to mode, whereby the intervals are the varying factor.   }a page for learning how to use and build figurate – here triangular and square – numbers, using gnomons.   }this page has some basic math concepts defined, which you’ll want to study if you wish to understand Natural Mathematics.

The best and IMHO most important uses of figurate numbers appear nowhere online, nowhere in the WWW that search engines can find. Similarly, even the best recounts of what Pythagoras knew or taught are by outsiders; there are very, very few Pythagoreans left alive on earth today. Schools descended from that tradition exist, of course, but…   }shows the basic mathematics of Fibonacci numbers, which plant, animal, and mineral forms on earth demonstrate in their physical characteristics.   }on this page, the concepts of the involution and evolution of sounds, pitches, is mentioned.

In fact, he proved the "vibratory antagonistic thirds was thousands of times more forceful in separating hydrogen from oxygen in water than heat." In his "Formula of Aqueous Disintegration" he wrote that, "molecular dissociation or disintegration of both simple and compound elements, whether gaseous or solid, a stream of vibratory antagonistic thirds, sixths, or ninths, on their chord mass will compel progressive subdivisions. In the disintegration of water the instrument is set on thirds, sixths, and ninths, to get the best effects." See  from . Keely's 3rds, 6ths and 9ths : Note well the Tesla quote about 3-6-9: “If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have a key to the universe.”  Nikola Tesla  Tesla's 3, 6 & 9 includes quotes on these numbers by Walter Russell.

Works with Photoshop, Corel Draw, etc., many common graphics or photo apps.  }this page gives a good presentation, of the basics of triangular numbers and figurate numbers. They also show the location of the triangular numbers in Pascal’s triangle, if you didn’t find it when we mentioned it to you elsewhere in this category. And although they did notice that the sums of the triangular numbers are the square number, just as all squares are built from triangle (cf. Bucky Fuller), they didn’t generalize to the natural conclusion, i.e., not mathematicians.   }Musical instruments and natural ambient and environmental sounds are excellent when used in sound therapy to accompany meditation and healing practices.    }Basic Acoustic Principles, from: "A Dictionary of Musical Terms", Novello, Ewer and Co., London, pre-1900. The science which treats of the nature and laws of sound.   }It is a well known and accepted fact that any vibration as in a sound tone will give rise to its octave harmonics. These are the harmonics generally acknowledged by science as multiples of 2, which multiplication derives superharmonics, and divisions by 2 derive subharmonics. These types of harmonic products or results of 2 are called octave harmonics. What is not so generally acknowledged but nevertheless just as true is a tone will give rise to harmonics not divisible 2 but divisible by other numbers such as 3, 5, 7, etc. These other harmonics are developed from and within the octave harmonic series first mentioned by the octave harmonics interacting arithmetically with and among themselves and with the fundamental. These spontaneously and naturally occurring tones will add and subtract from each other in a perfectly orderly manner giving rise to summation and difference tones sometimes referred to as secondary, tertiary or higher harmonics. When these summation tones are very powerful they are referred to as beat tones or beat frequencies and are considered enharmonic. This webpage is Recommended for study.   }Harmony is concerned with chords, and every chord is a combination of intervals sounded simultaneously. Any systematic study of harmony must therefore begin with an examination of intervals. The following interval data was found in many obscure and not so obscure sources. We found others but only included those having numeric values. You will note, some information conflicts with others. The intervals that form the basis of music, and their measurements relative to one another are (generally held) as follows (listed on the page).    }First Experiments in Modes by Michael Riversong Ancient Greek modes, used by legendary Bards such as Orpheus and Homer, have a lot of power that can be used for specific purposes, according to some of the ancient writings. Some of these melodic forms were said to have very specific healing powers in the legends.   }page showing things in nature, and the use of Fibonacci numbers to describe them, and its relationship to the golden section. A good site for students.   }the golden section in pentagons and pentagrams.   }this page shows one of the deep and surprising manifestations of phi, namely, in 5-fold tiling of the plane with Penrose tiles! Phi, as a mathematical constant, is easily as important as pi (technically pronounced “pee”, since it is a Greek letter and word), maybe more so. These Penrose tiles show The Golden Mean, phi, and hence Fibonacci numbers, etc. There is a script or applet on the page that shows the relationship between the kite and dart and a pentagon and pentagram, and divides the triangle according to which number you click on.   }this page shows an interesting attempt to integrate natural mathematical ideas, with a basically Jungian interpretation of Gurdjieff’s Enneagram. These people show some of the natural math of these things better than most other websites on the Web; recommended, except, of course, for the incorrect way of viewing the Enneagram, that is, calling it a Mandala; that, of course, it is not. The figure, not as an Enneagram, but rather simply as a visual figure, may be considered in the class of Mandala, symbols, etc., as described by Jung and his students, as well as by Mirceae Eliade, etc.    }He said: "Essentially stars resonate like a huge musical instrument. Stars make sounds naturally but we can't hear this as it is has to travel through space.  The new research comes just six months after scientists at Sheffield University recorded eerie musical harmonies emitted from the surface of the sun.   }Let us review the findings of the previous pages in this section, in order to affirm a precise definition of what the Fibonacci sequence is. The Fibonacci sequence, the golden rule and the golden ratio all extend from a common logic for geometric growth; that any one element is the sum of the previous 2.   }relationship of numbers to musical harmony. Suitable for students.   }this is the best page on how Pythagoras constructed the musical scale, since it is correct. The scale was built by powers of the fifth (shown). Ironically, today’s popular ET scale is built from powers of 2, namely, the 12th powers of 2. Pythagoras would probably have approved. Site: Recommended.   }Wikipedia has a surprisingly good page on just intonation. The page includes on it audio examples of the JI and ET tunings. A very good page on tunings and temperaments and scales, for Wikipedia. Recommended.   }A mode indicated a primary pitch (a final); the organization of pitches in relation to the final; suggested range; melodic formulas associated with different modes; location and importance of cadences; and affect (i.e., emotional effect/character). Liane Curtis writes that "Modes should not be equated with scales: principles of melodic organization, placement of cadences, and emotional affect are essential parts of modal content" in Medieval and Renaissance music.   }some of the equations for figurate numbers, but with no info.   }some of the basic math of the Pascal’s triangle, or triangle of binomial coefficients. There is a lot of natural mathematics connected with this arrangement; note, for example, the triangular numbers there. That’s a starting point. Note that this triangle was known in antiquity, and surfaced in China in the 13th century,  before Pascal.     }If music has the ability to impact our emotions and mood, the same goes versa. An interval pattern of scales will define its mood and style, ranging from happy and upbeat (Ionian mode), to sad (Aeolian mode), to sinister (Locrian mode).   }this page introduces the Fibonacci number, golden section, and hints at phi. “The Fibonacci numbers are Nature's numbering system. They appear everywhere in Nature, from the leaf arrangement in plants, to the pattern of the florets of a flower, the bracts of a pinecone, or the scales of a pineapple. The Fibonacci numbers are therefore applicable to the growth of every living thing, including a single cell, a grain of wheat, a hive of bees, and even all of mankind.” This site gives the best simple overview of the mathematics of nature, and explains the golden section, ratio, and spiral in a simple way. Good illustrations. Linklist at bottom.   }The “pitch” of these notes, or their frequencies of vibration, are in a ratio of about 1.618, the same “the golden ratio famous from art and architecture,” he continued. If two numbers are related by the golden ratio, their sum is also related to the larger of them by the golden ratio. In other words, if A divied by B is that special number, then A+B divided by A is the same number. Artists and architects have have used the golden ratio for centuries—for example, rectangles 1.618 times higher than they are wide because it provides esthetically pleasing forms. The golden ratio is irrational, like pi, meaning its decimals go on forever.

(His name is pronounced gurd-JEE-eff. The other one is the European or British pronunciation.) This is one of the better sites for reading about comparisons between Sufism and the Work. Note that Gurdjieff didn’t invent the work, and it existed before him, throughout human history, just as he stated. The Sufis did not invent the Work, either, and aren’t necessarily a part of it. This colorful and easy to read site gives probably the best comparisons of the two.    }page contrasting Sufism and the Work (another page from the same website). Of course, they’re similar, but not the same. However, G. chose his successors consciously and deliberately. Did he not write Beelzebub after his accident? That is, he was as sly and intelligent as ever and knew exactly what he was doing. “Clouded” is how it appears to outsiders, such as the man who wrote the article, since G. didn’t want outsiders to know who he put in charge of what, and wanted it to be difficult for insiders to figure out too, to prevent things like gossip. These are poisons.   }a fun description of characters from Beelzebub’s Tales To His Grandson, which today should be read in preference to the Bible. It should, unlike the Bible, be read from front to back, and completely, rather than studied or verses quoted from it: that leads to out-of-context problems, just as with the Bible.

The author is obviously in the Work, and by the end of the article, he has come to all the right conclusions, so to speak; but starts out by saying that “The Second Conscious Shock is one of the more obscure areas of the Work. It is surrounded by an aura of mystery and secrecy”, which we have found to be untrue. To us, it is plain: it is the next conscious shock, preferably daily, which follows the first one. Furthermore, it is plain to one when it happens: there is recognition. So, perhaps the writer wishes for this event to be mysterious, or occult, to those readers who aren’t in the Work, and wouldn’t know what it was. Good site and page though: Recommended.

In this comparative view of the seven souls, subtle bodies, or higher being-bodies, it is clear that fragments of a lost, whole knowledge exist today and have since historical times.

Therefore it is better to read the text chapters quoted whole, rather than cutting and pasting sections out of it.

Recommended. “The origins of this system as gleaned through Gurdjieff's extensive travels and studies are based upon the ancient perennial philosophy represented by the esoteric traditions of all great cultures. Like Pythagoras, father of the Western esoteric, scientific, and philosophical traditions, Gurdjieff was fortunate in his search to have been exposed to and initiated into a variety of ancient traditions, allowing him to recognize the inherent similarities and foundations upon which all esoteric traditions are based. The primary traditions to which Gurdjieff was exposed were Sufism (Islamic Mysticism), Orthodox Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, as well as traditions of magic and esoteric science existent since ancient times in Egypt, Persia and India.”   }an interpretation by someone who has it almost right. Actually, the formation of Abrustdonis and Helkdonis, is part or a different operation, a different transformation, within the human being; see also in Beelzebub. The causes of war are different, and some of it not always known to us, beyond our generally fallen condition. Furthermore war and revolutions are only intensified by Solioonensius, not necessarily caused by it. Finally askokin is generally thought to be released at death; Bennett and others have interpreted that to mean, only released at death; but this is not necessarily the case. In other words, nature or life does indeed feed on us, and we are its flocks; but its food is not only askokin, there are other energies and activities that nature or life arranges that we yield up to it, every day.  N.b.   }this site has a good summary of Bektash’s teachings.   }audio talks by J.

We also created this site to share with those of you; who are seeking meaning and truth, an exploration of consciousness, a deeper understanding of the need to awaken, to the ideas and teaching of the twentieth century Fourth Way spiritual teacher G.I. Gurdjieff. Through the sincere questioning and study of "myself as I am", Gurdjieff believed that a man could develop this new quality of attention. A central concept of the Gurdjieff work is that man does not know himself. He does not see that he lives an illusion that he is awake. He does not see that he lives a waking-sleep; that he is a machine, an automaton where everything happens without his conscious participation. Verifying this state of being through self observation is a step towards awakening to the conscious potential within us all. Gurdjieff proposes to us, that if man is to awaken he will have to study his sleep and all of its manifestations. It is just this search we are in need of.   }the centers and being-bodies are described here. The other websites on this list related to this material, should be read with this page in mind.

Once entangled, animals have trouble eating, breathing or swimming, all of which can have fatal results. Plastics do not biodegrade and may continue to trap and kill animals year after year. Marine debris entanglements have been documented for more than 200 species of animals. (Read summaries of some recent whale entanglements in the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary.)   }There are four main types of beaches. Barrier island beaches are beaches that start and end in the water and cover vast portions of our world’s coasts. These shifting shoals of sand are generally migrating towards the mainland around the world, possibly due to sea level rise. Mainland beaches are simply where the land meets the sea and also comprise many of the world’s beaches. Spits are similar to both types of beaches in that they are connected to the mainland at one end, but end in the water at the other end. When a large storm comes and cuts a new inlet in the spit, a new barrier island is formed. A pocket beach is a unique type of beach that is associated with exposed bedrock nestled between rocky coastal outcrops. They are found around the world and in abundance throughout the northern coast of the eastern United States and Canada.   }research news and science facts site.

These species are often referred to as fouling invertebrates as they adhere to human-made structures sometimes causing problems in marinas, dockyards and aquaculture facilities.

Normally a fringe of vegetation gains a foothold on this area, only to be washed out by the next storm. The storm high tide level is commonly marked by a storm wrack line, an erosional scarp, or the lowest vegetation on a beach. The back-beach is inhabited by a few permanent residents, including abundant Ghost Crabs, less common voles, and some insects, and by a host of transient visitors who often leave track evidence of their ephemeral visits.

(In Science and the Outer Streams, Peter Shor explains the philosophy of spiritual teacher George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff. Gurdjieff is arguably "the most colorful, enigmatic, and charismatic man of the 20th Century." Gurdjieff's basic teaching is that human life is lived in waking sleep, and transcendence of this state requires a specific inner work. This leads to otherwise inaccessible levels of vitality and awareness. Mr. Shor has been working with Gurdjieff's teachings since 1976. He is the president of the Claymont Society, an organization that directs Claymont Court, a community and school founded by J.G. Bennett, a principal student Gurdjieff's .

It is surrounded by an aura of mystery and secrecy, and as a result, this has led to various interpretations as to what it involves. The problem has been compounded by the fact that Gurdjieff's own teaching and terminology in regard to it seems to have changed over the course of his life. In this talk I would like to trace the development of the concept and bring out into the open what I have come to understand to be Gurdjieff's final teaching on the subject.”)   }the second conscious shock, part two of four. 9:06.

Parts of it now wash up on the coasts of Oregon and Washington. Toxic. This video is Recommended.    }plastic beaches, part 2. 8:13. "Many people are aware that there is a raft of used plastic materials the size of the state of Texas floating in the North Pacific Ocean. This "North Pacific Gyre" is thought to exist because prevailing ocean currents gather plastic garbage and bring it to this area, where it swirls, several feet thick. Recently, Mark Ward, a surfing enthusiast, has found that huge amounts of ground up plastic particles have washed ashore onto the beaches of Oregon and Washington. These plastics of varying shapes and sizes mix into the sand, disintegrate, release toxic chemicals, and are then washed back into the sea where they absorb even more toxins. Birds and fish ingest these particles, thereby concentrating the toxic chemicals in their tissues. On the morning of October 2, 2010, Mark Ward and several volunteers visited Crescent Beach in Ecola State Park, near the popular tourist destination of Cannon Beach, Oregon. The group measured off an area, picked up all plastic they could find in the first inch of the sand's surface, and took it to the biology lab of Clatsop Community College in Astoria, Oregon. Here is part two of what happened that morning." Recommended.   }the great secret of water, 43:09. Why does water vaporized into the sky form clouds instead of just spreading out evenly in space?

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
1. Q: So, which books of Mr. Bennett do you recommend?
    A: We recommend his book on the Enneagram, and his book on New Age Communities in the 20th century.   We also recommend             his essay on the Sermon On The Mount, and his Enneagrams of The Sermon On The Mount and of The Lord’s Prayer.
2. Q: Where are the rest of the videos about our electrical Sun? I watched the first one on you tube, and couldn’t find the others.
    A: You tube doesn’t always group similar videos together, nor those in a series, probably since the google  engine behind it                          can’t tell what’s relevant to what. So, here are those links for you:   }part 2 of the plasma sun. 2016 DL. Replacement:    }The Electric Sun, Dr. Don Scott, 32:27. The link just below the video, goes to a page, which shows that Gurdjieff described and knew about The Electric Universe before Velikovsky did, and wrote about it 30 years before he did, and was published (1950) about 5 years before Velikovsky was.   }part 3 of the plasma sun.  2016 DL. Replacement:    }a shorter exceprt from the 2012 talk. Dr. Scott explaining the electric sun.  12:28.   }part 4 of the plasma sun.  2016 DL. Replacement:   }An earlier talk by Dr. Scott, from 2009. Worth watching if you can understand electricity, plasma, and science generally. Recommended. 1:01:44.   }part 5 of 6 of the plasma sun. 2016 DL. Replacement:      }Evidence of the Electromagnetic Sun, 8:28. Audio talk by Dr. Scott; shorter, and Recommended.   }part 6 of 6 of the plasma sun. 2016 DL. Replacement:    }Donald Scott: Modeling Birkeland Currents, Part 1 | EU Workshop, 55:09.  To understand the electric sun, it is necessary for you to understand Birkeland currents.  From the video “Don Scott, author of Electric Sky, made two major presentations at the EU Workshop, Nov 14-16, 2014 in Phoenix, Arizona. The first detailed how “polar configurations” are formed in space. Lacking familiarity with electrical phenomena in plasma, astronomers typically list these Herbig-Haro objects as “poorly understood.” Don’s second talk will illustrate the relationship between Birkeland Currents and counter-rotating shells, to show how they form such polar phenomena as Earth’s cylindrical auroral sheets and Saturn’s north polar “hurricane.” “   }plasma rain falling on the sun, 1:18.
2016 Update: you can also use the video links on JKU Fall Harvest Edition (FHE):      }watch the Sun Videos here, especially if you are in the Gurdjieff Work, or its exoteric community, The Fourth Way. Watch the ones by Dr. Don Scott.  Note: If the Fall Harvest Edition won’t open in your browser, and you don’t have Microsloth Word on your computer, and the Onedrive site won’t open it in Word Online, then, use these links: either    or    .
          Also note that the most important higher influences within the range of man's world all emanate from  the sun. Gurdjieff made             it quite clear that sacred, or higher, emanations all operate according to harmonious, or musically consonant, principles as                  expressed  in the law of octaves.
3. Q: Do you know of any place that I can listen to the music of Hildegard of Bingen for free? I love her music  but don’t want to buy              any of it right now.
    A: Well, we have a collection of pieces of her music, featuring both traditional and  modern versions of  them, which you can listen                to here  for free.
4. Q: If others have questions or answers about this List, how can they contact you?
    A: They can contact, of course, Mr. Jae Kamel at, and, of  course, Dr. Jone Dae at .
