His(David Bohm) passion for truth carried him wherever it might possibly find nourishment, and his theories consequently reflect tremendous breadth and depth in accounting for a wide range truth that stems from a diverse spectrum of epistemologies.

The 3Ps blog is dedicated to exploring cosmology, quantum physics, and the domains of the very small and the very large with poetic expression of science concepts, philosophy, and history of ideas at the emergent consciousness level by using the "words of science."

Out from here
near the edge of the universe
clear of culture clutter
it's syllables my dear
wandering where
cosmic attractions
search for...the rest
The hologram universe

An Illusion of Lfe in Two Dimensions

Although I am not suggesting quilters invented AL (artificial life) or that AL inspires quilters, some combination of their grid performances can produce art and inspire other artists. Grid performances have rules which govern the actions, but something greater than the sum of the parts is produced in the patterns, whether it is virtual AL or material AL. In any case, you don’t have to be interested in video games to enjoy playing with the versions of John Horton Conway’s Game of Life. I suggest you give it a try before you go to a quilt show, it’ll change the way you see things. Who knows you might take up codmology instead of just fishing for life's persisent questions.

Cosmic Rhythms Quilt Show

Scissors, thread, material woven into a community worship homily,

Regaled like strange attractors in a chaotic universe of craft and color

A sensory overload of line and moving geometric clarity focuses

Life pattern emergence. Hovering in the twisted exhibition space,

Human eyes reduced to observing points float like planetesimals,

Pushed and pulled by subtle forces charged by emotion and memory,

Distances lose meaning, unknown dimensions fondle the consciousness

Like dream interpretations, the hazy messages capture the lucid mind,

And an assembled reality integrates pieced time into quilted harmony.

When I stretched the space it took on a different look. It alters the way you see the meaning of patterns,

Cosmic Rhythms Quilt Show

Scissors, thread, material
Woven into a community
Worship homily,
Like strange attractors in a chaotic
Universe of craft and color
A sensory overload of line
And moving geometric clarity
Focuses life pattern emergence.
Hovering in the twisted
Exhibition space,
Human eyes,
Reduced to observing points,
Float like planetesimals
Pushed and pulled by subtle forces
Charged by emotion and memory.
Distances lose meaning,
Unknown dimensions
Fondle the consciousness.
Like dream interpretations,
The hazy messages
Capture the lucid mind,
And an assembled reality
Integrates pieced time
Into quilted harmony.

Which might raise the question, how many ways does 9 go into 25? Mathematical precision does not always give the only integer.

Earth, air, fire. water and the Anthropic Principle

Common Denominator

Full to the whim with phantasy
Elementary particles live in a vacuum
Defined by eloquent equations

Nothing gets out of a black hole
Except a divergent imagination
Traveling silently in boson darkness

One caught below with 119 zeros
A cosmic constant holds them
Slaves in Higgs field incarceration

Unable to make the quantum jump
They wait for a physicist to see
A collision to make their debut

Poets and Physicist s - The quantum effect

Cosmic Encryption

The strange quantum uncertainty
here, there, and everywhere,
within, without, nonrandom bits sustain
universal poetic harmony.
The aetheric history matter dark intones

mystically to a poet on a quantum trip
entangled with monkeys
programming an escape from reality.
The centaur got a gyre wiring diagram
Took the labyrinth to MIT

Yeats was rejected by editors
for anticipating Asimov.
Einstein’s letter got lost forever
in an alternate frame of reference.
And, 42 was the answer we seek after all.

“was” that nonlocal past tense rheomode
phenomenon of the explicate order.
Mind - matter measurement scale factors
aside, consciousness, the muse,
the psi of Pythagorean dream, endures.
