A marriage between Science and Art.

A community for people who like to take an artistic view of science. Everday people try to scrutinize art and give it rational meaning, they apply science to it like sauce on a steak, as if it belongs there. They are wrong. Art does not need to be studied, it needs to be experienced. We should not bring science into the world of art but rather art into the world of science. For science has slipped into the shadows of the modern world and the only thing that will revive it is art. Science kills art but art brings to life science.

These people have all taken science to a new level, in understanding, learning, and living through their creative ideas.

When I Heard the Learned Astronomer

When I heard the learned astronomer,
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me,
When I was shown the charts and diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them,
When I sitting heard the astronomer where he lectured with much applause in the lecture-room,
How soon unaccountable I became tired and sick,
Till rising and gliding out I wandered off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Looked up in perfect silence at the stars.
