#eight a pair of squares - eight is two times two times two, and as such is the first cubic number after one. As the number of vertices of a cube or faces of its dual, the octahedron, eight is complete. At the molecular level this is displayed by atoms, which long to have a full octave of eight electrons in their outermost shell, so eight atoms get together to share electrons forming an octagonal sulphur ring. Eight is also the next Fibonacci number after five. Within architecture the octagon often signifies the transition between heaven and earth, as a bridge between the square and the circle. A spherical some often surmounts a cubic structure by way of a beautiful octagonal vault. #geometry #sacrednumber #qualitiesofquantiies #quadrivium #graphics #grandarchitect #brandofintellects #bestudentsnotfollowers #gaallday
The #quadrivium (plural: quadrivia) comprised the four subjects, or #arts, taught in the #Renaissance Period, after teaching the #trivium. The word is Latin, meaning “the four ways” (or a “place where four roads meet”), and its use for the four subjects has been attributed to Boethius or Cassiodorus in the 6th century. Together, the trivium and the quadrivium comprised the seven liberal arts (based on thinking skills), as opposed to the practical arts (such as medicine and architecture).
The quadrivium consisted of arithmetic, geometry, music, and astronomy. These followed the preparatory work of the trivium made up of grammar, logic, and rhetoric. In turn, the quadrivium was considered preparatory work for the serious study of philosophy (sometimes called the “liberal art par excellence”) and theology. The word “trivia” has been rarely used to refer to the trivium.
When it comes to storing information, hard drives don’t hold a candle to DNA. Our #genetic #code packs billions of gigabytes into a single gram. A mere milligram of the molecule could encode the complete text of every book in the Library of Congress and have plenty of room to spare. All of this has been mostly theoretical—until now. In a new study, researchers stored an entire genetics textbook in less than a picogram of DNA—one trillionth of a gram—an advance that could revolutionize our ability to save data. #dna the #ultimateharddrive #science #brandofintellects #math #educate #bestudentsnotfollowers #grandarchitect #gaallday

Take a look at this incredible experiment, which is training bees to detect cancer using their heightened sensitivities to certain smells and chemicals. True innovation at work:
Cosmic Brain: By Jon Lomberg
A poster I designed as a tribute to one of the greatest shows ever, Breaking Bad. It features important elements from the show in the form of minimalistic icons.

I understand the intent of your question but describing myself to myself is not helpful after a certain point. Such perspectives depend on too many illusions such as separation and judgment.
The spiritual path is not “centering” in the sense of altering what you are now into a more aligned state. Nor is it about maintaining centeredness.
It is rediscovering the truth that you are only ever the ‘center’ itself. The practice of recognizing and abiding as that center is meditation, mindfulness, and inquiry. Remaining as that center without driving the mind toward any craving is both desirelessness and wisdom.
I am not different or differentiated from anyone or anything. All I do is endeavor to know myself as I really am. No mind, no body, just aliveness.
