"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge"
- Isaac Asimov (via mofobian)

A very few works of the maestro Salvador Dalí (1904-1989). Here u find a comprehensive gallery - u can sort the works alphabetically or chronologically. The last pic was 1948 taken by Philippe Halsman and shows the maestro himself in action ;)
"Time is a fractal, or has a fractal structure. All times, moments, months and millennia, have a pattern; the same pattern. This pattern is the structure within which, upon which, events “undergo the formality of actually occurring,” as Whitehead used to say. The pattern recurs on every level. A love affair, the fall of an empire, the death agony of a protozoan, all occur within the context of this always the same but ever different pattern. All events are resonances of other events, in other parts of time, and at other scales of time."
- Terence McKenna discussing his Timewave Zero theory.
