Still, our souls could ski forever and the temptation to pack up the car and hit the road can take a deep hold. Might this be the year when we finally ski year-round? That’s always my goal and that’s why I…

Rec Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images It’s time for the latest installment of BTSC’s redrafting of the first two rounds of drafts occurring between between 1975 and 2015.

Whereas the first Guardians was a little too flippant and full of in-jokes, here writer-director James Gunn somehow manages to give even the most outlandish comic book characters an interior life. Whether they’re blue-skinned “ravagers,” Amazonian princesses in gold paint, varmints, planks of wood or humans,…

Everything is Sound and Light (2.0)

Water — which comprises 98% of the Human Instrument at a molecular level[i2] — behaves in a similar way to space, the medium for the slowest and densest forms of Light and Sound (energy and vibration).

This text explores the similarities between these three media and elements through the lenses of science and esoteric traditions. Underlying correspondences are explored which may offer ways to reconcile…
