Stars vibrate as sorrows may do too

Stars vibrate as sorrows may do too

The video clip above is indicative of what I try to achieve in my own artwork, here catching many aspects that interest me in a pow wow regalia dance or a punk mosh; in quick moves and following a hunch mostly, or following an unfolding narrative some times.

  Still plodding away with the theory of white dwarf stars. Now the variables are becoming meaningful, but the mathematics is still out of reach. Those crazy electrons! Quoting from E.C. Stoner, he arrives at a formula limiting density for a material composed of completely ionized atoms on the following argument: 

The density increases as the sphere shrinks, and the limit is reached when the gravitational energy released just supplies the 'energy required to squeeze the electrons together. (equation cited not shown here). This seems to me like a deeply human comparison.

Juke Box Hero?

Yes, you may say I do, in fact, have stars in my eyes. Or perhaps more accurately stated I have become enamored with the concept of the vibration of the stars in the galaxy; and the origins and affects of these vibrations, both physical and ideological. For no reason beyond the challenge, and my interest I have begun to study the first volume of the selected works of S. Chandrasekhar published by the University of Chicago Press beginning in 1989.

I frankly have no background in this subject whatsoever, but in pursuing this subject I am gratifying my attraction to the equations that make up the works. Seeing them printed in my book I am drawn to the faint familiarity I sense in the equation's structures, even as I have no definitions for the terms that make them up.  
As I begin here now
So I have harvested a broad range of glossaries of physics terms and symbols from online sources and Am spending time reviewing; and enjoying it well enough to see at least a possibility of penetrating my subject to good effect. I sense in the subject of this first volume, Stellar Structure and Stellar Atmospheres, new sources of inspiration in my continuing work in metaphysics and the humanities. I feel the 'truth' this field has found in measurement and deductive reasoning will give me fresh perspectives and help me to find new meaning in all that I already reasonably think I know.

I confess I am distracted by lovely concepts as 'masses of quantum multiplied by the velocity of the speed of light' and find myself staring off with a goofy grin on my face.  Seeing common terms defined technically in scientific terms is so amusing to me that this project seems delightful to me now but I realize that the subject may well be beyond my capacity yet still, and I may be forced to abandon this subject; but I intend to try my best, without regard to any time schedule, but only guided by my own capacity.

Give to be reviled, live to remain a child inside


The chief aspect I derived from this San Antonio post-punk scene I was immersed in for this space of time is solid virtue. That is I had no suggestions for the behavior of any of the people I interacted with. Instead I saw challenges each person is grappling with in his or her own way to the success, or to be overcome by them in the moment.

Having run right up at three hot-button issues of the day: cyber- bullying, creepy stalking and disregarding women's wishes to be comfortable in all public situations I have no difficulty understanding the fear and hostility I have inspired in a number of persons who are in the perrifery of my interaction with this scene.

I suggest those who feel my words, actions and challanges are misguided, creepy, fearful or unwelcome; the reason they seem so is as much each one's perception of them, and me at the moment. To the extent that these linger on in your own imagination. For my part I promise any action was forgotten immediatly after the moment that suggested it to me.

To those who are sympathetic to my work on this project I thank you and feel that in the end you will see my work as supportive in all aspects and kind in effect.

My prime objective for this project is as a historical document '25 years from now' of persons, and the music that moved them. A big part of that is the outfits that we wore; and the activities that surround the bands, and the shows.

Perhaps more others should try my path of one thing leads them to the next for local interactions. My luck has been very well; for I have met so many exciting and beautiful people ripe for actual real life friendship. My wife will guide me there as in most all else, but she never seems to turn up. My actions seem to become more worrisome when my behavior deviates from the worry-ers expectation. The key to easing these fears is not with me alone; but with every one who dares to become real world social.
