Albert Einstein, Robert Oppenheimer, Tom Schulz

The optimist thinks this is the best of all possible worlds. The pessimist fears it is true.

When I draw or paint from a still life, or a model, I realize that every time I look away from the subject: I am working from memory.
The subject ceases to be real (in the sense of the 'realness' I am attempting to portray).

This is how I most often get lost in my way.

From "The Brilliant Notebook Codex"

"An understanding of a new relatedness will arrive, I believe, the more we come to recognize the entity which I call the self, or I,
lying within matter,
Lying within ourselves,
Lying, above all,
in the special relatedness between ourselves and living structure."

From The "Spidey-Hole Series, Fractal Fireflies Subset"

"It will arrive, because the existence of this entity I call the "I" can be confirmed by experience, and it will - I believe - one day become part of physics, part of our understanding
of the material universe,
reunites self and matter.
with the world."
