Michio Kaku, The co-founder of Field String Theory explains why the universe has 11 dimensions rather than any other number.
What is physics? Physics is nothing but the laws of harmony that you can write on vibrating strings. What is chemistry? Chemistry is nothing but the melodies you can play on interacting vibrating strings. What is the universe? The universe is a symphony of vibrating strings. And then what is the mind of God that Albert Einstein eloquently wrote about for the last 30 years of his life? We now, for the first time in history have a candidate for the mind of God. It is, cosmic music resonating through 11 dimensional hyperspace.
Here is one of my all time favorite Beck songs, put to animation by Teddy Hose. I remember picking this album up during a class trip to Seattle while in high school. I listened to it quite a few times in the hotel, and my bunkmates thought I was crazy, asking "What the hell are you listening to?" I didn't give a shit, and this song still makes me laugh after all these years...enjoy!
Here are the Wailers playing 'Stir it Up' at Paul's Mall in Boston from 1973. It was recorded on July 11, 1973 during the band's Catch a Fire tour. This was the first concert played by the Wailers in the United States, and was the first night of five consecutive shows in Boston, before going to New York City to open up for Bruce Springsteen (at Max's Kansas City).
This recording is one of my favorites from my collection of live Bob Marley concert recordings...I hope you enjoy it!
I was shocked to learn that people are celebrating the death of Osama bin Laden...dancing in front of the White House and other acts of insanity...it goes to show that we have a long way to go as a society, as we are still doing war dances and celebrating violence...if we are to hold ourselves to a high moral standard, we must at least make an attempt to keep to those standards...
So, the other day I was really sick, bed ridden and feeling too ill even to read...so I turned on the TV for the first time in a month...I had a hankering for a 'Chopped' marathon...but I wound up watching a Chico and the Man DVD that I found at the dollar store a few months ago...funny stuff...but I am glad to put the TV away again and now be able to pursue other activities instead...
