As above, so below

1) “Powers of Ten,” Charles and Ray Eames, 1977

2) Log Lady Intro, “Coma” Episode 9, Twin Peaks, 1990

"As above, so below. The human being finds himself, or herself, in the middle. There is as much space outside the human, proportionately, as inside.

"Stars, moons, and planets remind us of protons, neutrons, and electrons. Is there a bigger being walking with all the stars within? Does our thinking affect what goes on outside us, and what goes on inside us? I think it does.

"Where does creamed corn figure into the workings of the universe? What really *is* creamed corn? Is it a symbol for something else?"

The Creator's Pride

1) From "The Laboratory," by Wislawa Szymborska

and let him come see for himself!

2) From "The Tyger," by William Blake

Did he smile his work to see?
Did he who made the Lamb make thee?
