The Great Divide in Art Part 2

April 15, 2014


There is a second great divide in art. This divides art into style or substance. Like the first divide, the new art says both are valid, and neither is more right or more modern.

Style: The subjects can be anything: portraits, still lifes, landscapes, etc. But what stands out is the style of the painting. The 20th century ushered in all kinds of style arts ‘isms’. Here are the main ones:
1. Impressionism
2. Pointillism
3. Fauvism
4. Cubism
5. Abstraction
6. Photo Realism

Substance: This type of art covers all subjects too. But what is key is the thought or substance behind the art. During the 20th century the vanguard of modern art seemed to bounce back and forth from Style to Substance. Then too some areas of the world favored one over the other. Major schools of substance art included:
1. Expressionism
2. Dadaism
3. Surrealism
4. Conceptual Art
5. Pop Art.

3 Kid’s Poems

April 11, 2014

3 Kid’s Poems (for my anthology of poems called “Moon Tea”)

The Moon hides behind the hill.
The Wind hides in the trees.
The fireflies turn out their lights,
and all the owls take wing.

Everywhere it’s quiet now
except me counting by fives;
“Ready or not, here I come!”
and then I open my eyes …

I know my
but not my

William Tell,
William Tell,
draws his bow
in the orchard …

Blood Brain Barrier Connected to REM sleep?

April 11, 2014

Blood Barrier connected to REM sleep?

This is very interesting:


I suggested that
NREM is body repair
REM is mind repair.

The blood barrier is in 3 places:
blood – brain barrier (excluding the circumventrical organs = mostly lower brain)
blood – ocular barrier
blood – testes barrier


NREM, = body repair in the parts of the body without barriers
REM = repair in the 3 parts of the blood barrier

Note: REM is dreams in the mind, rapid eye movement, and testosterone production.

This study seems to support that idea

“REM sleep restriction increased blood-brain barrier permeability”
