The Art of Science

Beyond the boundaries of established science an avalanche of exotic ideas compete for our attention. Experts tell us that these ideas should not be permitted to take up the time of working scientists, and for the most part they are surely correct. But what about the gems in the rubble pile? By what ground-rules might we bring extraordinary new possibilities to light?

The Art of Science

Unread post by rangerover777 » Sun May 18, 2008 3:25 am

This thread is a bit different,

It considered Science as Art, one that last hundreds and thousands of years, and even
after that, any human that will stand in front of it will be “taken” by it’s beauty.

For instance, Leonardo Da Vinci. He demonstrated observation, exploration, honest curiosity
and very deep understanding of nature and how things work (let alone his drawings).
I think he combined art and science in their essence. The nice thing about Leonardo, is that he
translated his scientific research into explanations, sketches and mainly drawing and paintings,
not so much through new names and theories, as today (sorry, since ancient Greece).

Leonardo’s drawings of nature, water whirlpools, anatomy, horses, plants, geology even his
mechanical machines, show a very deep observation and understanding. At least in my opinion
he is one of very few human that could show God on earth - in a very scientific and accurate way.

It’s not about how technically Leonardo drawings are. It’s about what they EXPRESS (big difference…)
To the viewer, it’s accurate and precise as reality, but reality is very hard to mimic. Face expressions,
proportions, forces of nature (wind, rain, thunders, etc.), light and shade and many characteristics
of reality that we take for granted, are actually happen in a very MATHEMATIC WAY.

There is a real knowledge in man made beauty (not only for philosophers and poets). If you know
how to Portrait nature, it cannot be accidental, and it must come from your “highest parts”.

Look at the Pyramids or the sphinx, listen to Bach music, it express laws of nature in a way
You cannot explain, though it touches you. “Objective Art” is a science, much more then any
Quantum Mechanic or General Relativity. Keep in mind that science is about revealing God.
You have a few alternative to do that, including just enjoying being a live… And whatever
alternative you choose, it have to come from within. If you barely swim in a roaring sea of
particles, names and theories, rest assured there is a whirlpool around you…

Knowledge have value only if it’s within your being (like any parts of your body). Otherwise
it’s theory, though theory is important, it belong only to the intellectual part, which is not the
whole story of deep understanding of life, nature, the cosmos and yourself, first.
Expression of your environment and your impressions are your tools. Usually if there is
focus attached - deeper understanding occur.

I think we need to learn how to read nature and the universe. Much of what we call today’s
science is about invention of nature as oppose to curious honest exploration. And I hope
even the intellectual science will start to find truth and laws through beauty.

There are too many human “Objective Art” creations going unnoticed or revealing only
the “envelopes”. Some are ancient civilizations, that left buildings and artifacts which
never understood correctly (usually called “Ceremonial” or “Religious”, etc.) which serves
to protect our ignorance. Not every ancient remains entomb knowledge after all, but those
that you stand in front of them and appreciates “their impressions on you”, even though you
cannot understand what exactly you are witnessing.

Sometimes we are so impressed that we try to figure out how it was done, instead of what
meaning it convey. Like the Pyramids all around the globe, the Inca stone work, the 1,150
tons blocks in Baalbek (Lebanon), Stonehenge, Antikythera Mechanism and a long list
of achievements that our intellect by itself cannot grasp.

The “New World” (mainly after the “Great Flood”) and the “Former World” (up to 9,000 BC
or so, and back) have parallel period where ancient knowledge was preserved to some extent.
Unfortunately a lot of human destruction went on during the New World, through wars and
pure barbarism (by “sophisticated cultures” as well), that physically, many clues just destroyed,
like the “Library of Alexandria” and many others (by the way the ancient Egyptians that we know,
are not the ones who built the pyramids and the sphinx, just look for their description how it was
done and you will never find…though some other things left for them from those who built the
pyramids, like their art which is astonishing).

In the “New World”, the Ancient Greeks took control over science and after them the Church
and after that Modern Science. The exploration of nature and the cosmos took a different direction.
No more Beauty and Wisdom that convey knowledge (that includes math, astronomy, chemistry
and other physics branches), but categorize, definitions, names, theories - words, words and words.
No more appreciation of our creator universe and honor his creation, but analyzing and performing
“open heart surgery” on nature without regard to the patient.

Though some personal could “raised” over these artificial barriers, like Shakespeare,
Leonardo Da Vinci, J.S. Bach and a few more, it’s important to mention that there are different
types and levels of creativity.

“Objective Art” forms elevating art to “Objective or universal laws” knowledge (and usually
remain in the culture’s mind for hundreds or thousands of years). Many gifted
geniuses like Nikola Tesla, Newton, Michael Angelo, Mozart, Paul Cézanne, Ed Leedskalnin,
Goethe (and many more), they all “Saw Something” and were able to convey that in their ways,
though it was only part of the picture, everyone in his/her field open a window to the universe
and it’s elegancy, beauty and wisdom.

Every person in his/her daily life, encountering such an events of appreciating our Father creations
and it’s natural beauty (that cannot be express in words only). This property not reserved only for
gifted geniuses and brilliant personals, but for each one of us. Even being a good mother is an art,
same as being astrophysicist, geologist, a chess player, a cook or a gardner… Everyone can
bring real knowledge to life and the form it happen - really does not matter…
