Vincent Willem van Gogh - my favorite quotes

 I read all 847 Van Gogh's letters. He was very knowledgeable and well-read, and he wrote wonderfully as great writer. If he wasn't painter he could be an excellent writer.
You can find letters here :

and these quotes are my favorite

 " I think there are very few people on this Earth that are totally free. I am not free but I am working on it."


Free like the river

Flowin' freely through infinity
Free to be sure of
What I am and who I need not be
Free from all worries
Worries prey on oneself's troubled mind
Freer than the clock's hands
Tickin' way the times
Freer than the meaning of free that man defines
Life running through me
Till I feel my father God has called

Me having nothin'

But possessing riches more than all
And I'm free
To be nowhere
But in every place I need to be
Freer than a sunbeam
Shinning through my soul
Free from feelin' heat or knowing bitter cold
Free from conceiving the beginning
For that's the infinite start

I'm gone - gone but still living

Life goes on without a beating heart

Free like a vision

That the mind of only you can see

Freer than a raindrop

Falling from the sky
Freer than a smile in a baby's sleepin' eyes

I'm free like a river

Flowin' freely to infinity
I'm free to be sure of what
I am and who I need not be
I'm much freer - like the meaning of the word free that
crazy man defines
Free - free like the vision that
The mind of only you are ever gonna see
Free like the river my life
Goes on and on through infinity

 Noam Chomsky
Necessary Illusions
Thought Control in Democratic Societies


 A paragraph from a book by: Noam Chomsky: Media Control.

 "The issue is whether we want to live in a free society or whether we want to live under what amounts to a form of self-imposed totalitarianism, with the bewildered herd marginalized, directed elsewhere, terrified, screaming patriotic slogans, fearing for their lives, and admiring with awe the leader who saved them from destruction, while the educated masses goose-step on command and repeat the slogans they’re supposed to repeat and the society deteriorates at home. We end up serving as a mercenary enforcer state, hoping that others are going to pay us to smash up the world."


Divert public attention from important to unimportant issues. Overtask public with flood of irrelevant information, that people wouldn't think and acquire basic knowledge in understanding the world.


This method is called "problem-reaction-solution". You need to create a problem, that the public reacted to it. For example: cause and transfer violence with the intent that public more easily accept restriction of liberty, economic crisis, or to justify the demolition of the welfare state.


That the public has agreed to some an unacceptable extent, you need to be introduced gradually, "the scoop", months and years. The changes, which could cause resistance, if they should be performed rapidly and in a short
time, in this way they will be implemented by policy of small steps. In this way the world has so changed over time, but not be aware of the changes.


Another way to prepare the public for unpopular changes is to be announced much earlier, in advance. On that way people do not feel all weight of a sudden change, because previously accustomed the very idea of ​​change. Besides that, "a common hope for a brighter future" facilitates their acceptance.


When you are talking to adults like you are talking to children, they achieve two benefits: the public suppresses their critical awareness and the message has a stronger impact on people. This suggestive mechanism largely be used in advertising.


Misuse of emotions is a classic technique used in causing a short circuit in situation of reasonable judgment. Critical awareness is replaced with emotional impulses (anger, fear, etc.). Use emotional register to access the unconscious, and later can be implemented at this level ideas, desires, worries, concerns, or coercion, or cause certain behaviors.


The poorer classes should be disabled access to understanding the mechanisms of manipulation their consent. The quality of education of the lower strata of society should be as weak or below average, that gap between higher education and lower layers remained unbridgeable.


The public should be encouraged to accept mediocrity. It is necessary to convince people that (in, in fashion) is desirable to be stupid, vulgar and ignorant. At the same time to induce resistance to culture and science.


You need to convince everyone that it is only and exclusively on their own responsibility and guilty for their misfortune, due to the scarce of knowledge, limited ability, or lack of effort. So insecure and underestimated individuals, burdened by guilt, forsaking the search for causes of their position and rebellion against the economic system.


The rapid development of science in the last 50 years creating a growing gap between public knowledge and those who possess and use, the ruling elite. "System", due to biology, neurobiology and practical psychology, has access to advanced knowledge of the man on the physical and mental level.

Manufacturing Consent - Noam Chomsky and the Media 


An estimated 10,000 galaxies are revealed in humankind's deepest portrait of the visible universe ever. View a full size version of this image, or a slightly farther look with Hubble's infrared camera, in medium or large format.

How do astronomers know when they have looked too far into space? Maybe when they have run out
of galaxies to view.

That hasn't happened yet. There are still far reaches of space that have not been explored by even the most powerful telescopes, innumerable galaxies that have not been seen by human eyes.

But astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope are getting closer, with new images that reveal some of the farthest galaxies ever seen, from when the universe was just 400 million years old.

Called the Hubble Ultra Deep Field, the view represents the deepest portrait of the visible universe ever achieved by humankind. The snapshot reveals the first galaxies to emerge from the so-called "dark ages," the time shortly after the big bang when the first stars reheated the cold, dark universe. The new image should offer new insights into what types of objects reheated the universe long ago.

This historic new view is actually two separate images taken by Hubble's Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) and the Near Infrared Camera and Multi-object Spectrometer (NICMOS). Both images reveal galaxies that until now were too faint to be seen by ground-based telescopes, or even in Hubble's previous faraway looks, called the Hubble Deep Fields, taken in 1995 and 1998.

"Hubble takes us to within a stone's throw of the big bang itself," says Massimo Stiavelli of the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Md., and the Hubble Ultra Deep Field project lead. The combination of ACS and NICMOS images will be used to search for galaxies that existed between 400 and 800 million years (ranging from redshift 7 to 12) after the big bang. A key question for astronomers is whether the universe appears to be the same at this very early time as it did when the cosmos was between 1 and 2 billion years old.

The Ultra Deep Field contains an estimated 10,000 galaxies. In ground-based photographs, the patch of sky in which the galaxies reside (just one-tenth the diameter of the full Moon) is largely empty. Located in the constellation Fornax, the region is so empty that only about seven stars within the Milky Way galaxy can be seen in the image.

and here is story 

The Big Bang Never Happened (1992) Lerner 


" Quantum physics has scientifically proven what the yogis, Buddhas, and Mystics have always taught, namely that the reality we perceive as being ‘out there’ in a fixed state is in fact an illusion. Instead what we are actually dealing with is a field of infinite possibilities which is in a constant state of flux. The reality we perceive is what our brain has come to assume is there."

 “Love is what we are. If you are irresponsible, your affectionate relationship will be irresponsible. If you are dishonest, you will join someone else with lies. If you are insecure, your affective bond will be anxious. But if you are free and mentally healthy, your emotional life will be complete, healthy and transcendent. Love without attachments is to love without fear "
''The only thing of importance, when we depart, will be the traces of love we have left behind.'' (Albert Schweitzer)
 " There is a child inside each one of us, who comes out in front of the person we are most comfortable with.."

 "Faith is an oasis in the heart which will never be reached by the caravan of thinking."~ Kahlil Gibran 

Trust your instincts. Intuition doesn’t lie
Listen, take a deep breath, and BE, what is that? It's your spirit/soul that is intuitively setting you on the right path, you just need to tune in, your belief that it will not set you wrong and will only do right for you, once you release yourself into that flow, the rest will just happen automatically ~
