At any rate, let’s get back to why we are having this conversation. We are here to use the language of art to search for a boundary between Art and (Not Art) in a real example. Surprises occur at boundaries. Surprises are the basis of humor. So … we might know when we are close to a boundary between Art and (Not Art) when we start laughing.
Systems of knowledge have languages associated with themselves. The language can be a natural language, mathematical language, or even artistic language. We can say that each of these closed knowledge systems has big holes in it. There are true things that the knowledge system will never know. Any system of knowledge is like a great sponge with structure, but that is full of holes. Knowledge does not expand like a bit of perfume into a room. It expands like an interconnected sponge skeleton of knowledge.

“Make it distant, difficult and dangerous, was the motto of Cooper Schoedsack Productions producers of the original King Kong movie. It is my motto as well during over a million and a hald miles of worldwide travel and adventures. I am a gonzo journalist like the mad genius writer Hunter Thompson, a lover of Kerouac, H. L. Mencken and Tennyson’s Ulysses.
Secrets of Eternal Youth is a shout that shakes the world, a wicked treasure house, a virtual cosmic library, and a colorful madcap tirade about almost everything in this life. It is an “out of the box” wild anarchistic freedom manifesto, filled with myriad adventures and cbaracters I encountered doing assignments with my cameras around our beautiful spinning earth.
We hover dangerously low over shark’s teeth, seracs or ice pinnacles tilted askew above gaping crevasses, a jagged ice bound moonscape, terrifying and beautiful as death. There is no place to land, no way out if we have a mechanical failure. Our big A-Star chopper’s turbine whines menacingly. The rotor blades fight for lift ‘whistling Dixie’ in this gleaming blue white frozen graveyard. “Hold it, stop, backup, terrific,” I shout at Brent, our pilot. We fly too low and slow, the Dead Man’s Curve, kept alive by the spinning rotors.
Before I go to de street rapper talk dat I learned growin’ up in de streets of Brooklyn, I gotta say that we need to and gonna question everything and everyone like dey all liars. I just listened to the famous atheist Richard Dawkins and the scientist Laurence Krause discussing Krause’s book “Something From Nothing,” on youtube in Australia. Strangely, they said nothing about how you get something from nothing, meaning the universe. I like Dawkins and am willing to hear Krause:
I knew Diane Arbus briefly when I managed legendary Art Director and Designer Alexey Brodovitch’s Design Laboratory workshops in the forties of the last century. The workshops were held in her friend fashion photographer Richard Avedon’s smaller studio above his large one in Manhattan.
Diane attended the workshops as a guest to watch or talk to us on occasion. She, of course, was on a mad path to self destruction, and sadly could not photograph anything besides the dark or freak side of humanity. I have photographed people in a hundred countries around the world on my million and a half miles journeys and assignments. My own belief and practice has always been to try to reveal the dignity of the human race with kindness, love and humility.

Lloyd takes long, complex exposures in New York City’s streets at night with his handheld 35 mm Canon digital camera. Far from static and serene cityscapes, his photographs exuberantly embrace the energy of the city and its inhabitants. The word embrace, though, doesn’t fully cover what’s going on in these photos. These works are a dance with light. Trusting an intuitive response to the cadences of the patterns of lights illuminating the city, Lloyd moves himself and his camera in time to their unseen rhythms. Each exposure done this way is unpredictable, made in a kind of wild and blind trance. Lloyd must surrender to the power of light as it tears though the darkness. In his dance he follows the light, enabling it to reveal its secrets to him.
Cosmologist Sean Carroll gave a TED talk Distant time and the hint of a multiverse. He said “The universe is really big. We live in a galaxy, the Milky Way Galaxy. There are about a hundred billion stars in the Milky Way Galaxy. Every one of these (little blobs) is a galaxy roughly the size of our Milky Way — a hundred billion stars in each of those. There are approximately a hundred billion galaxies in the observable universe. . .”
“What you have to think about is we have a universe with a hundred billion galaxies, and a hundred billion stars each. At early times, those hundred billion galaxies were squeezed into a region about this big – (literally a pinpoint) — at early times.
Prevention, of course, is vital early in life. In my book SECRETS OF ETERNAL YOUTH, we study the newest information about brain plasticity. In 1995 it was discovered that our brains, contrary to previous beliefs, can grow new neurons all of our lives. The major factors that keep are brains young and even make them younger are diet, exercise, curiosity, learning and attitude. (Editor’s Note: SECRETS OF ETERNAL YOUTH will be available in the summer of 2016)
The notes below from Wired Magazine (Jan. 2011) shed light on how BREAKING THE LIGHT images are made through an interaction with light photons called quantum entanglement. Each image is made during a single time exposure with a hand held camera. While the shutter is closed I am “blind” to the multi-colored lights where I am shooting. The camera does a “quantum dance” that guides it movements. These excerpts shed light on how my “blind” eye influences my other open eye and vice-versa through quantum entanglement. The robin’s eyes, through a layer of cryptochrome at the retina, are theorized in this article to have quantum entanglement with the earth’s very weak magnetic field.
