From Browncoat Whovian Epiphany:
I love it when art, science, fun and happiness all converge.
Humans are more than walking calorimeters. Superstition has to answer to reason. Humanity embraces both reason and beauty.
That’s the modern part of Modern Oracle. Predicting the future or reading minds or seeing your ‘fate’ is indeed superstitious nonsense. There is nothing mystical or magical about Tarot Cards – they are a tool to connect with our innate wisdom and non-verbal knowing in a more deliberate, rational, verbal way.
Just as Tarot and intuition are not the end-all be-all, and needs the touch of reason, Science (fantastic as it is) isn’t the end-all be-all of everything without a touch of humanity.
Luckily there are many things that bridge the gap, embrace both. Like Doctor Who, Symphony of Science, Wonders of the Universe, Wonders of Life, Cosmos, Star Talk Radio, Mythbusters and so many more. I like to think I can add my tiny bit to the process too.
There is reason in magic, and beauty in science. There is fun, laughter, wonder, awe – the whole gambit of human experience in both because humans create and experience and embrace both.
And there is fan-girl geeky delight in all of it too. Thank you to everyone who indulged my hashtag mania today. Squee part 2 – Dr. Cox retweeted the @BBCAmerica reply to me about the time and day for “The Science of Doctor Who”. I know it is far beneath any real notice, but dang it…it’s as close as I’ll ever get to an intellect of that magnitude. (Not that either my husband or I are too shabby in the IQ department) but well, you know.
Intuition, reason, science, philosophy, art, poetry, magic, health, humor, communication, social media, TV, CERN, chemistry, physics…the diamond of humanity has many facets.
And I’m celebrating them all by going nuts with #TwoDocsInATardis, watching Doctor Who, watching Wonders of the Universe, feeling inspired and happy listening to Symphony of Science videos on youtube, writing poetry, doing Tarot readings, doing Reiki sessions…it’s all good.
Wishing you all a weekend filled with science and fun, wonder and beauty
