cosmos

A Quote by Walter Russell on knowledge, cause, effect, god, think, thought, light, electric, information, education, and cosmos

I always looked for the CAUSE behind things and didn't fritter away my time analyzing EFFECTS. ALL KNOWLEDGE EXISTS as CAUSE. And it is simple. It is limited to LIGHT of MIND and the electric wave of motion which records God's thinking in matter. EFFECT is complex-infinitely complex - but one can have no KNOWLEDGE of effect. One can but be INFORMED of effect. Information is not knowledge. Our educational processes INFORM us but until we have recognized the eternal truth which underlies that information we have no knowledge of it. Like food in the grocery store, it is not nourishment until it is converted to the blood stream. ALL-KNOWLEDGE is possible for anyone - and the Cosmos gives it to him who asks but all information is impossible.

A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on childhood, children, men, ache, cosmos, and peace

Childhood knows unhappiness through men. In solitude, it can relax its aches. When the human world leaves him in peace, the child feels like the son of the cosmos.

A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on reality, imagination, and cosmos

For in the end, the irreality function functions as well in the face of man as in the face of the cosmos. What would we know of others if we did not imagine things?

A Quote by Mircea Eliade on upanishads, great dissolutions, and cosmos

Neti! Neti! cries the sage of the Upanishads:
"No! No! thou art not this; nor art thou that! In other words: you do not belong to the fallen cosmos, as you see it now, you are not necessarily engulfed in this creation; necessarily - that is to say, by virtue of the law of your own being. Now, nature has no true ontological reality; it is, indeed, universal becoming. Every cosmic form, complex and magestic though it may be, ends by disintegrating; the universe itself is periodically reabsorbed by "great dissolutions" (mahapralaya) into the primordial matrix (prakriti).

A Quote by Dan Simmons on express, thought, genius, civilization, cosmos, word, idea, and human

Gass once wrote: "Language serves not only to express thought but to make possible thoughts which could not exist without it." Here is the essence of mankind's creative genius: not the edifices of civilization nor the bang-flash weapons which can end it, but the words which fertilize new concepts like spermatozoa attacking an ovum. It might be argued that the Siamese twin infants of word/idea are the only contribution the human species can, will, or should make to the raveling cosmos.

A Quote by John and Mary Gribbin on stars and cosmos

Life begins with the process of star formation.   We are made of stardust - and so is all life as we know it, and therefore children of stars.  All the chemical elements on earth except hydrogen - including the ones in our bodies - have been processed inside stars, scattered across the universe in great stellar explosions, and recycled to become new stars, planets, and parts of us.  Elements are "cooked" by nuclear fusion inside stars.  Supernovae are great stellar explosions in which the resulting ash is spread far and wide through the cosmos, forming new generation of stars, planets, and people.

Past the Milky Way. Past the stars and moons, the suns and shadows. Past the universe. Past it all. Past the light and into the darkness. Past the created and into the creation, into the deep space of creators, of gods and immortals. Into the creative cosmos. Into the within. Into it. There lies a place with a white planet, a bright dot in the static blackness, a solitary island in the expanse of imaginative nothingness.

This lone planet lies still in its isolation, staring at the darkness with two penetrating eyes that protrude from its spherical whiteness…
