“Light and Sound”

The original symbol of life and death
“The Birth of Pheonix” by ShivaSly The original symbol life and death

Once upon a time there was a girl  named “Light” who was the  daughter and keeper of time and space. One day “Light” decided to wander through the dimensions to see what existed in other realms. She found a dimension filled with color and stopped to admire its beauty.
She suddenly realized that it wasn’t just the brilliant colors that had pulled her into the new dimension, but something which she had heard. Curious she found herself hypnotized and in swift pursuit of the strange calling. Louder and louder the calling thundered in her ears urging her on; until she turned a corner and stopped in her tracks.

There on a hill stood a boy who seemed to glow brightly, and with his back to her he continued singing a song that flooded everything around him with color; his very presence made all of the beings near him dance and laugh with joy.
“Light” felt moved and called out to him asking who he was; upon hearing her voice he turned, smiled and said his name was “Sound.”
“Light” was mesmerized by “Sound’s” beauty and voice, and wanted to learn all that she could about him. She stayed with him in his dimension for some time enchanted by him, and him with her, until she told him that she must leave, but would return one day to him.

“Light” continued on with her journey through the many dimensions learning all that she could about the other universes and galaxies. “Light” found a world filled with illusions and adventure, and she became rather content there; until one day when she felt an aching pain within her heart.
“Light” felt a stirring within, as if something was urging her to turn back in time, and as she turned around she began to remember her past.
“Light” decided she must leave immediately. As she moved through space and time (with a feeling  of her essence fading) she searched on and on with an awareness of impending dome which held strong to her chest. “Light” pressed on as fast as she could, unsure of what was happening, and feeling quite drained she decided to stop and rest; upon doing so a vision of “Sound”  formed within her mind.
In the vision, “Sound” told her that he could no longer wait for her and needed to leave his dimension and begin on his travel to the next dimension.

“Sound” kissed her head in the vision and as he did an image appeared on “Lights” chest.
As the vision disappeared “Light” awoke and knew that “Sound” had left his world.
“Light” sat in silence accepting that her friend was gone and bent her head feeling sad that she had been gone for so long. Then an image caught her eye and she saw the gift that “Sound” had left behind for her.
“Light” looked up and shed a tear and put her hand to her chest where “Sound” had left a symbol of the bond they had on her heart.
“Light” felt honored, and to commemorate “Sounds” essence, “Light” created another image and placed it alongside the symbol he left on her chest. “Light” vowed to wear both images through infinity.
Light and Sound have remained bond throughout time, known to all within the secret teachings of the universe, as the symbols “Aum and Ankh”; Sound and Lifeforce.

Fractal Art and Nature

COSMOS SHOWING THE FIBONACCI. ART AND NATUREFractal art and nature

How are fractal art and nature alike?

When someone looks at nature they do not usually think of math, yet math as “algorithm”  is everywhere we look.  Most do not know of the “fibonacci sequence or fibonacci series” and its relation to the Phi, but this pattern is everywhere.

SUNFLOWER SHOWING THE FIBONACCI SEQUENCE NATURE AND ART It is in the flower that we gaze at with awe and is in the cosmos, when we are staring at the stars. How can this be? and what is the fibonacci sequence?

The fibonacci sequence was first recognized being discussed in the 12th century. Leonardo Fibonacci wrote about it in Liber Abaci. He wrote of a simple numerical sequence which is the incredible mathematical relation behind the PHI. What is amazing is that although it is known today as the fibonacci in dedication to the forthcoming knowledge given to the west by Leonardo Fibonacci. We now know that is dates back to the 6 century AD as knowledge known by Indian mathematicians, North Africa and the Mediterranean.

PHI SYMBOLPHI “Φ” = 1.618033988749895,  is important because it is an irrational number like “pi” p= 3.14159265358979 but one with unusual mathematical properties.  Where pi is a transcendental  number, phi is the solution to a quadratic equation.

Now when we take into account the phi and the fibonacci in nature we understand that there is a common pattern platform governing the design of nature and the cosmos.

RED CABBAGE SHOWING THE FIBONACCI AND FRACTAL ARTOur world is created in a  beautiful design  and she moves in the rhythm of the Golden Ratio. The golden ratio appears in geometry, art, architecture, plants and even our food. We find the golden ratio when we we divide a line into two parts so that;

The whole length is divided by the long part  is also equal to the long part divided by the short part.

LEONARDO DAVINCIS GOLDEN RATIO PIC WITH NATURE AND FRACTAL ARTThe Golden Ratio is the greek symbol PHI. You can  find the sequence of the golden ratio everywhere. Scientists have even proven that the golden ratio is found on the human body first shown by Leonardo Da Vinci  in his art pieces “The Mona Lisa and The Vitruvian Man” and several other pieces that he created.

Throughout history especially during the renaissance time  artist  and architects who were also alchemists like Da Vinci  (1451-1519) made a point of appreciating the golden ratio sequence and it is seen in the structures and art  pieces created by them during that time.

All around us the golden ratio sequence or series is reflective within our world. Many people focus on the underlying balance of the fibonacci series and the golden ratio when they design or choose  their home by the plants that they admire, and by the art that they choose; although very few realize that it is the pattern of the golden ratio which prompts their passion,  admiration and desires.

PIET MONDRIAN PAINTING OF GEOMETRY ART AND NATUREA modern Dutch artist Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) was a deep believer  that math and art were connected. His art pieces of landscapes and abstract art  reflected that.  He like Da Vinci used art to express his logic, nature and point of view.  Mondrian felt any shape is possible to create with basic geometric shapes. The Golden Ratio is one of the basic shapes continuously appearing in his work.

What many do not realize is that fractal art is not new, it just has a new name and is created a little different, but the format is still the same.

COSMIC PORTAL 1Fractal art by Shivasly is the art of our world being given a new expression through the programmer’s knowledge of algorithms which are written to emulate nature and are expressed through the designer’s sense of style, color, scale, proportion,  relation, imagination and human expression.
