What is up with these images!!??

.

I have been working on a form of artistic encoded information transfer.
Each of these images contains a word, that has been converted from ASCII to binary and then used as the foundation template for the resulting image.
I use colors and the form to try to communicate the word and a feeling of it.

Here is how I do it.

"Ziv Art" :^)

In a computer simple text is in a format called ASCII, and in ASCII each letter is made from 8 bits (1 or 0), or one byte. For example the ASCII letter "L" is actually made from 8 1's and 0's in the following order: 01001100.

I took the word "Love" and converted it into binary code.

So each row of 1's and 0's is a single letter.
Like this:
L = 01001100
o = 01101111
v = 01110110
e = 01100101

Then, I used this pattern of 1 and 0 as the basic form of the painting.


In this image, there are four lines of numbers, one for each letter of the word, and eight numbers across. Then I paint all the 1's one color and all the 0's another color.
In this case red and blue.

Now that you know this, you can look at any of the images, and convert the pattern into binary, and then the binary into ASCII letters and finally put it together into the word it represents.

This shows that there can be hidden meaning in patterns that can be right in plain sight.
We may never see them and understand the meaning of it unless we know how to look at it in the right way.

Love is in plain sight, if you know how to see it.

About the Rune "Algiz"...

I have been asked about the Rune and what it means, and after a bit of online research I found out quite a few interesting things. Before this search, I knew it meant "safehaven" or "protection". There are some interesting things to interpret from it's meaning and my use of it. Seems the Dark Lord was a guardian/protector... and one of my favorite finds during this search for the meaning was the following bit of inspiration that is from the www.tarahill.com site. You will also see this below, but I wanted to put it here too for emphasis.


"In terms of the journey, we have passed through death and rebirth, and must now face the Guardian before returning to our world. It is he who charges us to use our new-found power wisely. The person can no longer be simply concerned with their own personal development, but must now consider the effect that their actions may have on others. This is a crucial turning point, and the person will either choose to adopt a system…

The Dancing Wu Li Masters...

The earth has been spinning on it's axis for as long as I can remember... (3 decades).
Things have been becoming what they are for millions of years.
Yet, when the asteroid hits, they will say it happened today.
To that I will laugh, and say, You short sighted fools, it happened at the big bang, you just now noticed it. Is there choice or has it all been evolving from the rules of the universe since the rules began.

I look to the people with short sighted natures, who like to believe that they have some great cosmic role to play. I look to them to enhance my illusion. I want to believe they are right.

But here I am, on this crazy hunk of fermions, zinging through space, on a course that only the rules know. Finding myself responsible for my effects.

What a joke, the cosmic joke, you don't even know the process for digesting your own food, yet you are supposed to be responsible for your actions. You are a monkey... blind to the truth of the universe and acting like you kno…

30 years ago, Emergence...

Today was the 30th anniversary of the day I was birthed.

3 decades on Earth so far and what is it all for?

I'd like to think that my particular presence in space and time has meaning. That all the effort and resources my parents and teachers over the years have invested in me will somehow come to fruition.

I feel like I have accomplished some things that have been worthy of their contributions, but in some ways I feel like there is still so much to do to make it up to them.

I am still working on my BS degrees in Physics and Information Technology. There are many good reasons I have for such a drawn out timeline, but to me it is hard to swallow. I should be finishing my first PhD by now, but my choices in life have not manifested that reality. It is still my goal to accomplish someday, but I have become more comfortable with the way things have turned out so far within the given timeline.

I have learned that since, as far as I can determine, there is only one of me, and time seems …
