Thinking Machine 4 explores the invisible, elusive nature of thought. Play chess against a transparent intelligence, its evolving thought process visible on the board before you.
The artwork is an artificial intelligence program, ready to play chess with the viewer. If the viewer confronts the program, the computer's thought process is sketched on screen as it plays. A map is created from the traces of literally thousands of possible futures as the program tries to decide its best move. Those traces become a key to the invisible lines of force in the game as well as a window into the spirit of a thinking machine.

Play the game.

Wikipedia: Overview FAQ 

kenneth parker photography

Kenneth Parker is a large-format landscape colorist working principally in remote pristine wilderness areas throughout the world where he has trekked and kayaked extensively. He is inexorably drawn to the elemental earth/ocean forces and their compelling magic, translating into arresting imagery the depths of these feelings, rich in power, radiant. [...] Most of Parker’s photographs are captured over the course of 5-10 day backpacking excursions hauling 75-85 pounds of large-format camera equipment as he becomes immersed in a profound sense of place. Often several days are spent contemplating the changing light and intimacy of a composition before completing a single exposure. Usually only one or two distinctive images will result from one of these journeys.

Science is Broken

Science Criticism - a website of Gary Novak, Biologist

In earlier centuries, science had a positive influence on society in developing social awareness around objectivity and rationality. It replaced the witchcraft and hocus pocus of charlatans with evaluation of objective evidence as the means of determining truth. But now, science is leading the pack for charlatanism and witchcraft, as junk science is acquiring a greater legitimacy than the charlatans ever had.

Coral Castle Code

Coral Castle Code

The Illustrations on this website are based strictly on a visual code discovered by Jon De'Pew in the writings of Ed Leedskalnin, builder of Coral Castle , the mega ton coral structure in Homestead Florida. The beauty in these designs lye within the code itself , it is a real code with a message that could change mankind. This code is the hidden blueprint of natures magnetic currents of structure and creation, there is also another underlying pattern within this code that are known as ley lines or (neutral energy distribution lines). They are the true atom builders. Science is mislead and off track.
Note: The patterns presented  on this website were all made in a straightforward & scientific manner, these illustrations represent the interaction between two individual Male / Female magnetic currents.
Ed Leedskalnin left a subtle visual design on his book "MAGNETIC CURRENT" this tiny clue that Ed Leedskalnin left us has unraveled into the answers of our Universe's greatest mysteries.

Mysteries of the Past

The past of mankind seems to hold many mysteries. For example:

  • How was it possible for the Egyptians to build their pyramids?

  • Why did they build them? Were they tombs and only tombs?

  • Why are there pyramids all around the world?

  • How could primitive stone-age cultures build somethin magnificent like Stonehenge?

  • What is the meaning behind all those mysterious temples and stone circles
    around the world?

  • What are the objects which can be seen in many old paintings and carvings that look like technical instruments?

Gods - in the form of alien visitors from outer space or as missionaries from now sunken former civilizations - brought the necessary knowledge to the people. And helped to do thing which are impossible with the primitive technology of our forefathers. Because history as thought at school is wrong!  But do these answers make sense? Can they really explain everything better than traditional science? Frank Dörnenburg investigates this on the pages of his fascinating website.

The Pyramids and Temples of Gizeh Online

The Open Cheops Committee was founded in 1997 to present and make public the case for the re-opening of the Great Pyramid of Cheops. We assert that the Great Pyramids were not built as tombs; that the entrance to Cheops lies outside the structure; that interior ramps were used in its construction; and that there are dozens, if not hundreds of un-opened halls, corridors, chambers, and rooms within the structure.

Outcast Earth is the paranormal travel journal compiled by six people wandering the world in search of forgotten people and places, lost knowledge, unsolved mysteries and personal enlightenment.

Once upon a time, when human society still wandered the world as tribes and relied on faith and intuition to understand almost everything around them, the universe was accepted as a living, breathing organism. Spirits inhabited the forests, an unseen energy linked together all biology, and a divine plan guided our triumphs and follies.

Today, as we age, most of us either forget or are unavoidably buffered against this sense of wonder by hectic lives and unimportant distractions. But briefly, when we are children, we experience the world as both a wholly unexplored and innately magical place. Do you remember?

Science, Pseudoscience, and Irrationalism

Science, Pseudoscience, and Irrationalism
by Professor Steven Dutch, Natural and Applied Sciences, University of Wisconsin.
Many definitions of the scientific method have been formulated, and all have their merits. However, every single one can be counterfeited by pseudoscientists.
Thus, pseudoscience has profound implications for models of science.

Becoming Like God


It's a strange prison, because within its walls lie mountains and rivers and sunsets. It contains rare birds and rare diseases, mini-dramas, maxi-dramas, melodramas, and the latest DVDs.
It's a strange prison, because within its walls lie mountains and rivers and sunsets. It contains rare birds and rare diseases, mini-dramas, maxi-dramas, melodramas, and the latest DVDs.
The prison has no name, but over the years its inmates came up with one and it stuck. They call it Life. No one gets out for good behavior, and in this facility everyone is sentenced to die.
That's why this letter is addressed with great passion and urgency. You who read it, however comfortable your surroundings, are inhabitants of this prison, as am I. Our prison's history is littered with legends of escape attempts, and rife with advice from escape experts, but prison life has proceeded pretty much unchanged for several thousand years. Which is to say that most prisoners aren't aware they're in prison.
But now an incredible opportunity has presented itself.
A historically ordained opportunity. An opportunity written in the DNA code of our universe. A crack in the prison door has opened and allowed a shaft of sunlight to shine through.
Consider this book a report from that sunlight. That sunlight emanates from the Creator of our universe. We can follow it to its source, and when we do, we discover our own source. When we do, instead of praying to God, obeying God, fearing God, or rejecting God, we become like God.
On what authority do I make such an extraordinary, perhaps sacrilegious statement? On good authority, none of which is mine. In fact, not a single truth that I'm about to reveal comes from me personally. I'm merely a reporter, and my news source is a 5,000-year-old body of wisdom called Kabbalah. My principal reference is 23 volumes of Aramaic text, which comprise the chief repository of Kabbalah's wisdom: the Zohar.
Two thousand years ago, the Zohar revealed truths science is only now confirming. I have had the unusual privilege of translating the Zohar -- its first complete English translation in history and a project that took me more than ten years. In human terms, my authority comes from a lineage of giants: Kabbalists and luminaries who for thousands of years have lived, revealed, and transmitted the teachings of Kabbalah, sometimes in secret, sometimes in the face of grave danger, but always with the certainty that a moment in time would come when this knowledge would emerge from its private, esoteric realm and be available to everyone on Earth. A moment when the prison doors would open and a long history of pain, suffering, and death would be over.

A moment when people would become like God.
That moment is now.
