Re: Dreaming in Art

Ah yes! I was thinking about this picture for some days now.  All this business with other universes and selves.  In dreams, we are released from the body to see the other side.

Re: Female fashion throughout the ages

I am reminded of the "handicap principle" in evolution.  This theory is about how some animals, like the peacock, can survive with such a cumbersome  and ridiculously beautiful tail generation after generation.  The principle explains that the animal is signalling to a potential mate that if it has ...

Re: The Hero's Journey according to Joseph Campbell

Yes, Frodo was so wounded , he had to leave with the elves, but I think they were all going to some sort of heaven, never again to return to Middle Earth or something.  The point is, Frodo the hero, could not return.  He lost his mortality.  His spirit had to enter a different realm.  But, but, but,...

Re: I'm not a feminist

Dawn, without writing much, I'll just say this: I went to see some "modern art" made by women artists yesterday.  After the brief visit, I will reiterate your topic statement: I'm not a feminist.

Re: Female fashion throughout the ages

But of course. "The perfect woman" are variations on a profoundly deep archetype. Speaking of which, I have long wanted to make a dedicated fashion thread on Crossdream Life, but I cannot seem to find anything on the contemporary runway that I like. Meanwhile, all the old VHS material from the 80's...

Re: The Hero's Journey according to Joseph Campbell

@Barbara, Great example! We should also add that given the Hero's new perspective -- and what he or she has learned on their journey -- what they do when they come back may seem evil to those who are still living in the old world. This is why transgender people who come out to their families may be...

Re: I'm scared

Isn't traveling and walking around the city helping you, oreb?  Continue with the art observation: sculptures, architecture, etc.  People watching helps too.

Re: Has anybody been following the Google diversity memo story?

I heard on some NPR show. Intro to Java, about 10% female participation. Creative problem solving with computation. closer to 50%. Same class. Go figure. I once took an after-work part-time job writing science lesson plans for teenage English language learners (mostly made up of immigrants). I knew...
