The Origin of Consciousness – How Unaware Things Became Aware – REBLOG

Interesting that we don’t really know where consciousness comes from. Even computer programming. I know how it’s done … but why does it work? Why does writing all those lines of code make a computer DO the things it does?

Consciousness is the state of being aware of both our surroundings and our own inner state. But where does it come from?

IT LOOKS LIKE A FACE – CEE’S BLACK & WHITE PHOTO CHALLENGE – Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s B & W Photo Challenge: Looks Like a Face

This is the only shot I have which actually looks like a face. To be specific, it looks like Garry’s face, wearing a cap. It forms a huge shadow on the wall of the UMass University Medical School.

Is it Garry? He was there. Maybe it is.

Or … maybe not!

Can you see Garry’s face?

If you look you can see the brim of his hat and his face beneath? It is up in the right quadrant of the picture!

A SPIKY, SQUARE FULL MOON ON A MISTY MARCH EVENING – Marilyn Armstrong

A square, spiky full moon on a misty night

Last night, just as I was packing up and ready to go to bed Garry popped into the living room. He had already removed his hearing aids so he obviously didn’t expect an answer.

“I could be wrong, but it looks like a really full moon out there. You might want to take a few pictures.”

Of course, I wanted to take pictures. I’ve never been able to take successful pictures of the moon from this house. The trees have always been in the way. I do have a great lens now, but it’s not a fast lens. It’s perfect in daylight.

I thought it might work because the moon was so very bright, but when I realized I could feel the mist in my face, so I knew I wasn’t going to get the face of the moon. I hoped it would be clear tonight and maybe I make up for it … but it’s raining for real now.

Meanwhile, these are as interesting a set of pictures as I’ve ever taken.

Not only spiky squares. Jagged, barbed, bristly, serrated, prickly, spiny, and pointy things and this is one.
