Patterns. Our lives are full of them, from patterns in our food to the music that we hear to the most intricate uses of it in nature and even further beyond are planet still in the configuration of our Solar System. Patterns are what hold us together, it’s the combination of something that can give us power or even make our food taste better and as with anything else bring us closer together. Is it by complete fluke that our Solar System has the correct distance needed for life to evolve on this planet? Where would designers be without patterns? And what intrigues life to change it’s patterns? If, as Stephen Hawking’s, and many of the world scientists believe that we are all here from a ‘Big Bang’ then we truly are all born from one. An ever changing pattern, though a very slow one but it’s enough evidence to suggest that everything has a connection and it’s the connections in life that give us the power to progress further. Will you stand for silence to mark your power for one minute on one day? If so, then brace yourself for ‘The Day WE Stood Still’, 11th June 2011 and help make HISTORY!! The good people are Wonderlance believe that WE can all make a difference if we believe and recognise this by taking a full one minute silence on the 11th July 2011. Lets release our potential and stand as one, if only for one minute in our world of silly wars over land, money and fame. WE can all make a universal difference and stop to remember and feel the unity that bought us ALL here.Please visit here for more information and updates or join the Facebook group to keep informed on the tdWss.
To end with, I leave you with a video from Sebastian Seung on his recent TEDtalk covering a very interesting topic on Connectomes and the brain and again it’s interesting to see the patterns that are ‘branched’ in our own brains.
