‘When reflecting on these results, it is perhaps heartening to remind ourselves that until well into the 1990s, early simulations–which neglected dark energy–also gave rise to predictions that didn’t match data….

i mostly use a monitor now; must i re-learn colour theory? whether ‘inks or paints, oils or watercolors, transparencies or reflecting prints, computer displays or movie theaters, [the medium] was not considered especially relevant.’ uh-oh. maybe i’ve opened a can of worms.

‘And so it has gone as we apply new technologies, only to find out later that they have unanticipated side effects. New technologies unleash perturbations that become a kind of experiment within the biosphere, as we will no doubt learn with genetically modified organisms.

Thursday, 2017 March 9

Emily Carr (1871-1945).

‘This golden disk [on Voyager 1] did have at least one positive consequence. It was the reason that Annie Druyan [above], who was the disk’s creative creator, collaborated with Carl Sagan [below].

Friday, 2017 March 10

Carl Sagan said, ‘One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken.
