The Law of Fives

raginrayguns:

from Principia Discordia:

The Law of Fives is one of the oldest Erisian Mysterees. It was first revealed to Good Lord Omar and is one of the great contributions to come from The Hidden Temple of The Happy Jesus.

POEE subscribes to the Law of Fives of Omar’s sect. And POEE…

Star Trek, Vulcan, and the Universal Translator

radicalhufflepuff:

So in translation there’s a common issue where a word in one language can link many disparate ideas under a single word that in some way unifies the different ideas as being somehow related. In Sanskrit, for example, the word dharma can mean “law,” “teaching,” “thing,” or the totality of existence.

When translating, the translator has to choose between using the same word each time or to use a different word for the different meanings of the word. Either choice distorts the meaning, so no choice is inherently better or worse than the other.

I hypothesize that this is an issue with the Vulcan language and the word “logic.” I believe that there is a single word in Vulcan that can be variously, and accurately, translated as “logic,” “truth,” “common sense,” “good,” and “accuracy” among other things. The universal translator translates this word as “logic” in every instance, leading to the impression that it is specifically logic that Vulcans value, rather than the far more complex concept denoted by the actual word in Vulcan.

This town in Russia is called Zheleznogorsk.

Their flag and coat of arms is a bear splitting the atom.

That is all.

MYSTERY SOLVING LADY DUO! Finished illo from the demo I did for Phoebe’s class at the University of Michigan. 
I always wondered, as a kid, whether the super sleuths of the 60s books I read were sleeping together. Probably.

French Friend: well, the total cost of me going to Med school is about 406 a year -
American Friend: THOUSAND?
French Friend: Um, no. 406 Euro. It sounds a little high but it covers the cost of my textbooks, extra classes and most of my housing. How much is it for you?

The Intricate and Beautiful Paper Cutting Art of Maude White

Maude White is a paper cutting artist living in Buffalo, NY. She loves the great strength, yet delicacy of paper. Her work is done on the macro as well as the micro level. Every cut is exact and meaningful. She enjoys playing with positive and negative space to create fantastic scenes and stories. She considers herself a craftsperson and has a deep respect for the paper she transforms. In pursuing her work, she hopes to make visible to others the immense world of possibilities that every piece of paper holds.

Maude White: Birds I’ve Been

September 5th-October 25th, 2014
Opening September 5th, 2014 6-9pm

White’s show is the fourth in the 12 x 14 series at WNYBAC, which features 5 artists over the course of twelve months; Maude will also host a free collaborative event that will give insight into her process on Saturday September 20th, 2014 from 12-5pm.

”When I cut paper, I feel as if I am peeling back the outer, superficial layer of our vision to reveal the secret space beneath. With paper cutting there are so many opportunities to create negative space that tells its own story. Letting the observer become present in the piece allows him or her to look through it. I like the idea of the stark contrast between the black and white paper, and the cut nature of the work makes my art more three-dimensional than paint on canvas. ”
