Jahsonic’s microblog: Archive.

Here’s an interesting blog.  It has an odd collection of art depicting body parts, dissection, sex, sexual organs, nudes, and various art motifs and historical images.  It is truly a treasure trove of the unique images, rarely, if ever seen online.  As Jung would say, these are bound to appeal to your secret, shadow nature. … I hope you enjoy these!

Miniseries Review: The Men Who Built America (History Channel)


Summary:

If you are looking for a good historical docudrama about vision, grit, determination, and an abundance of moral dillemmas, greater-good scenarios, and hard choices, you might enjoy The Men Who Built America.  It focuses mainly on the enormous and world-changing contributions of 4 entrepreneurs: Cornelius Vanderbilt, John D. Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, J.P. Morgan, and Henry Ford.  Special guests include other players such as Thomas Edison and Teddy Roosevelt.  You’ll watch as the visions of men of power help their fellow man come out of the dark turmoil that was the Civil War, into the light of a new century.  In the end, you’ll see how greed and corruption ultimately bring the downfall of the  colossal monopolies, as the new way of doing business pathes  the way for the emerging middle class.

Impressions:

I thought this 4-part miniseries was quite well done. For those of us who are interested in the origins and the “why’s” of things, but who have never really been drawn to this era, a lot of the facts and information in this program, along with the famous entrepreneurs of today who they interview from time to time, shed a lot of insight on a lot of questions those of us with a “green” or sustainability/eco-friendly bent have wondered. For instance, “why did a poisonous fluid like crude oil become popular in the first place?”, and “why did Tesla’s AC power not get accepted at the time, even though it is our primary power source today?”

Recommendation:

Overall, I’d say anyone with a thirst for historical knowledge and understanding “how we got to this point”, would not be sorry giving this one a peek. Cheers.

Icon – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

An icon (from Greek εἰκών eikōn “image”) is a religious work of art, most commonly a painting, from Eastern Christianity and in certain Eastern Catholic churches. More broadly the term is used in a wide number of contexts for an image, picture, or representation; it is a sign or likeness that stands for an object by signifying or representing it either concretely or by analogy, as in semiotics; by extension, icon is also used, particularly in modern culture, in the general sense of symbol — i.e. a name, face, picture, edifice or even a person readily recognized as having some well-known significance or embodying certain qualities: one thing, an image or depiction, that represents something else of greater significance through literal or figurative meaning, usually associated with religious, cultural, political, or economic standing.

Throughout history, various religious cultures[1] have been inspired or supplemented by concrete images, whether in two dimensions or three. The degree to which images are used or permitted, and their functions — whether they are for instruction or inspiration, treated as sacred objects of veneration or worship, or simply applied as ornament — depend upon the tenets of a given religion in a given place and time…

Role of the Catholic Church in Western civilization – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

via Role of the Catholic Church in Western civilization – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The role of the Catholic Church in Western civilization has been intricately intertwined with the history and formation of Western society. Through its long history, the church has been a major source of social services like schooling and medical care; inspiration for Western art,culture and philosophy; and influential player in politics and religion. In various ways it has sought to affect Western attitudes to vice and virtue in diverse fields. It has, over many centuries, promulgated the teachings of Jesus within the Western World and remains a source of continuity linking modern Western culture to classical Western culture.

While the West is no longer universally Catholic, the Catholic heritage remains strong in Western countries: festivals like Easter and Christmas are marked universally as public holidays; Pope Gregory XIII‘s Gregorian Calendar has been adopted internationally as the civil calendar; and time
