What the Universe Wants

25 Oct

I am going (trying) to answer a big question posed in my recent blog.

We can only know what the universe wants when we are honestly and innocently observing of all the phenomenon that we can see that is of a continuous stream of unpredictable events.

This is something that we really do not want to know. We want to know God (a big controlling mind over us).

When something bad happens to us or to someone we know that is obviously in the realm of chance, we may very well want to think that it happened for a specific purpose.

Here are some observations that cannot be put down.

We can know the universe (know what it wants) when we observe its long term successes.

Nothing in the universe is hoarded. Everything is in use.

There is a force for purity in the universe that can only be described as a force for purity. This is saying that we can control our fate somewhat simply by our behavior. If we are strong, good and honest our good fate will be better and longer. If we are weak, bad and dishonest some bad fate will be upon us.

There is a kind of ‘slate clearing’ comeuppance in the universe in any arena where there is corruption and injustice.

If we are loving and honest and sharing of our wealth we can last a long time in the universe (a million years like all the honest animals do). If we are too greedy, well … we will be faced with a situation where we are totally surprised by a sudden downfall with all of our stuff … that we cannot take with us !

None of this will make too much sense to you if you are too smart (so masterful with your ways with wealth). But BUT over the long run we will become the victims of something I what I have been claiming for many years. This is the God Force. This Is not a thinking entity of any kind. It is logical to describe this force as the universe immune system. It is so because it quacks like a duck and swims like a duck, so to speak … it acts exactly like the immune system that all living things have (creatures) have.

I am happy to tell you about a solution that we can employ with our amazing science these days. It is the science of truth detection that we are getting better and better at.

“Did you get this from the Aliens, George ?”

Yes. It is a simple solution that will enable us to go on as we are for the most part .. for a long time … but with enough truth in our human affairs that will keep us below the radar (the triggering of the universe immune system).

George Forss – How to photograph a sunflower

17 Oct

I have a 1 1/2 x 3 foot garden in front of my gallery. This small plot of land become a garden when Jack Metzger, the owner of “Jack’s Outback” next door to me, decided to till my small plot of land and plant sunflowers here. He has been keeping my garden growing … glowing with sunflowers for years now. I am like, eternally grateful to this man.

Every year, like magic, some sunflowers bloom. It is always exciting for me to want to photograph the sunflowers that come around.

This year I singled out only one sunflower. This was a very large one. It was at my height standing straight and looking just perfect, as a sunflower can be.

I took three pictures from the same vantage point. The background for my study was the entrance to my gallery. I had to work out a composition for my study carefully. The first picture I can illustrate here shows my skill at doing this. The second picture has a person in it suddenly … within the same composition I set up ! This is Cambridge own Larry Sconzo, the man I nickname The Godfather. Larry looks out for all of us in Cambridge. He is very bold so he put himself right in my picture while I was taking the first picture. So, I have a portrait of Larry with my sunflower. The composition for this second picture is very good. I could not have orchestrated this second picture any better than this. Larry just stood in my picture as you see ?

For my third picture … while my camera is still in the same place … I decided to incorporate a large art work behind the sunflower. I was smart about this when I thought of using a large Donna Wynbrandt work that is about 4 by 6 feet. I also made this third picture a horizontal picture. The is an exemplary artist of the third kind. Her art works are always exciting and tasteful.
