Where It All Started: Time

Where It All Started: Time
This is the piece that started it all, over 30 years ago. Bronze and w alrus ivory casket from Gandersheim ( Anglo-Saxon origin, late 700's )   I don't know what it was about researching this piece that got me all fired up, but after awhile I found myself travelling back in time to an early workshop, selecting tools by firelight- images dancing on the walls and even the smell of fresh bread to compliment a bowl of stew sitting near my lap for hours. A bite here, carve a little there.   Time.   It doesn't really matter when you are in your element.   Heres a small excerpt from the book I had been reading at the time:   "Gandersheim Casket.

Nikola Tesla: An Interview

Nikola Tesla: An Interview
An interview that scientist Nikola Tesla gave in 1899 for the magazine "Immortality" in his laboratory in Colorado Springs. You have to take the time to think about his method of communication and he did his best to convey concepts, it being Serbian to English in the slightest, language tendencies. There are strong, universal messages contained in his thoughts. Timeless. It wouldn't matter if an individual was born 100, 1000, or even tens of thousands of years ago, the resulting conclusion in some of these subjects would manifest because they are natural law and simple truth. We spend more time trying to avoid or disprove these truths out of fear, arrogance and greed. Read on.      JOURNALIST: Mr. Tesla, you have gained the glory of the man who got involved in the cosmic processes. Who are you, Mr. Tesla?   TESLA: It is a right question, Mr. Smith, and...
