On a day like today, Spanish painter Francisco Goya was born March 30, 1746. Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes (30 March 1746 - 16 April 1828) was a Spanish romantic painter and printmaker regarded both as the last of the Old Masters and the first of the moderns. Goya was a court painter to the Spanish Crown, and through his works was both a commentator on and chronicler of his era. The subversive imaginative element in his art, as well as his bold handling of paint, provided a model for the work of later generations of artists, notably Manet, Picasso and Francis Bacon.

The English philosopher and statesman, Francis Bacon rightly said, “read not to contradict and confute, nor to believe and take for granted, nor to find talk and discourse but to weigh and consider”. This is exactly what Buddha told us all over 2500 years ago. Many who contribute to this site like to share both relevant and irrelevant materials which are rich in intellectual content, but I feel that it may be doing more harm than good to self and others. We should always keep in mind that this is a Buddhist Wisdom Group. We seem to have lost sight of this fact. This is a site that is dedicated to sharing the Gauthama Buddha’s Wisdom. We must always remember that the Dhamma-Vinaya is our Teacher, as the Blessed One said to Ven. Ananda, "Now, if it occurs to any of you — 'The teaching has lost its authority; we are without a Teacher' — do not view it in that way. Whatever Dhamma & Vinaya I have pointed out & formulated for you, that will be your Teacher when I am gone." So whenever we post mater . ...

Ben Franklin, was also a Rosicrucian Grand Master, who was at the heart of the Illuminati operations to take over America and replace the visible control of the British Empire with the invisible control of the secret brotherhood, the most effective and ongoing form of mastering the underclass. It is said the Illuminati, via the Freemasons, controlled and manipulated both sides in the American War of Independence and were also deeply connected with the French Revolution (1789). Franklin was Agent 72 of the British intelligence agency created by Dr. John Dee and Francis Bacon during the rein of Elizabeth I. During their time in London, Franklin and the Professor were brought into contact with those in positions of power who shared their Masonic and occult interests. One of these was Sir Francis Dashwood, the English Chancellor of the Exchequer who was also the founder of a secret society called the Friars of St. Francis of Wycombe, more popularly known in the parlors of London as the *** Fire Club.

Brief Introduction A:Authobiography Nicholas Evans was born and grew up in Worcestershire, England. He studied law at Oxford University, graduating with first class honors, then worked as a journalist for three years on the Evening Chronicle in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. He then moved into television, producing films about US politics and the Middle-East for a weekly current affairs programme called Weekend World. It was during this time that he traveled a lot and got to know the United States. In 1982 he started to produce arts documentaries – about famous writers, painters and film-makers, several of which won international awards (films about David Hockney, Francis Bacon, Patricia Highsmith). In 1983 he made a film about the great British director David Lean (Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor Zhivago, etc). Lean became a friend and mentor and encouraged Evans to switch from fact to fiction. For the next ten years, Evans wrote and produced a number of films for television and the cinema. In 1993 he met a blacksmit ...

THE BACON LEGACY- "One of the most important men of this entire era was the (Rosicrucian), Francis Bacon. His influence was colossal. He was the Grand Master of the (Rosicrucians) in England, a major force in the creation of Freemasonry, the father of modern science, and possibly one of the authors of the Shakespeare plays. He was also a member of a secret society called the Order of the Helmet, dedicated to the worship of the goddess of wisdom, Pallas Athene, who was portrayed as a wearing a helmet and holding a spear. Researchers and investigators like Manly P. Hall, the renowned Freemasonic historian, have little doubt that Bacon was born from a liason between Queen Elizabeth I, the 'virgin queen', and her lover Robert Dudley, the Earl of Leicester". - The Biggest Secret, David Icke pg.163
Many a man nurses a lot of dreams, and some 'determines' to become someone's else in future. He envies the man's fortune, prowess and dexterity, and mimicks his works of arts and literatures. Just as a result of the man's integrity, privilege, popularity, veneration as well as love earned within and outside the country. But the imitator has forgotten, that through imitating other character, features--- he has indirectly curtained and limited his indefinite inalienable and inborn gene to a certain terminal which he cannot transcend the line of the person he's imitating. I cherish the shrewd skills of Confucius, Buddha, Plato, Aristotle, Aristophane, Socrate, Francis Bacon, Benjamin Franklin, Ab Lincoln, William James, Obama jnr., Shakespeare, Horace, Wordsworth, Maxwell, Chomsky, Dale, Wole Soyinka, Late Achebe, Late Festus, Olarotimi,Chimamanda Ngozi adichie,Jerry agada...but the fact is that I shall never pray to be like one them. But always retain my real identity...because we all possess the same genes ...

“Write down the thoughts of the moment. Those that come unsought for are commonly the most valuable.”. ― Francis Bacon

RECYCLED KNOWLEDGE (My radical take) Francis Bacon rightly said that ‘reading makes a full man’, a ‘full man’ then would be one not only well-versed and competent in what he/she does, but also well informed about the world around him/her. Reading, therefore, as an undisputed source of human knowledge and information of all kinds, is of fundamental importance for academic progress and general human development. But let us, for once, throw this into logic, better still, logic into this, or say rationalize a bit. How? For instance, you and I have witnessed a generation that has wholeheartedly hyped reading (studying) as if life per se depends on it; as if to do otherwise is a deadly evil. Hence, for fear of persecution or the perceived death, many have flocked headlong to any camp ascribed to academe. With what outcome? After sessions of monotonous recycling of age-old knowledge (no doubt, knowledge is timeless) and even state-of-the-art hypotheses and theories, the thoroughbreds are then found roami ...

My take on the whole Bill Nye/Ken Ham debate. This entire debate is surrounding Bill Nye's statements about Creationism. Such as "Creationism is not appropriate for children". Well I think some important points were missing from both sides last night. Such as "are there excellent scientists who believe in God?" Well lets take a look . Father of the modern computer - Charles Babbage Father of Physics- Sir Isaac Newton Father of Chemistry- Sir Robert Boyle Father of Astronomy- Galileo Galilei Fathers of the Scientific method- Sir Francis Bacon, Galileo Galilei, Sir Isaac Newton Pioneer of modern Mathematics- Leohard Euler Father of Taxonomy- Carl Linnaeus So don't tell me I cant raise my children to believe in creationism, while you stand on the shoulders of creationists.

If you want to believe that the world came into being from nothing and has no purpose then your welcome to teach your children that. But don't tell me that my kid ...

12 INDISPUTABLE SIGNS THAT YOU’RE BEING MANIPULATED BY YOUR LOVER Love cures people - both the ones who give and the ones who receive it.Prince Chuks It’s quite obvious that the human nature is indeed possessive and domineering. Sadly enough, most often, people who are inclined to constantly impress others lose their personality in relationships. Experience and research have shown that the most vulnerable moment of an individual is when he or she is in love. This accounts for the reason why so many have been exploited, abused, scammed, deceived, tricked, hoodwinked, hoaxed, deluded, swindled, defrauded, cheated, double-crossed, gulled, beguiled; and even duped. As Francis Bacon (a contemporary Philosopher) would say: Knowledge is power. And as such, a person who is not well informed is basically limited, and cannot but walk in a dark alley. I’m not trying to go professorial or philosophical in this reflection. However, I feel constantly obliged as an informed mind to elucidate / expound the high poi ...

Someone who knows me far, FAR better than they should considering that we've generally only ever communicated via electronic mediums tagged me to do Francis Bacon; an artist that I continually return to for inspiration, his cold and acutely precise autopsies of the darkest and most sublimated of human concerns something that chimes massively with my fiction, and had more than a passing influence on Strange Playgrounds.

something else to look forward to. another great artist, richard hamilton. The Guardian re Hamilton's upcoming Tate Modern exhibit Richard Hamilton: portrait of the artist as a social networker Artist Richard Hamilton was snapped by everyone from Cartier-Bresson to Hockney to Jasper Johns. Jonathan Jones on a life in Polaroids The great British modern artist Richard Hamilton could see into the future. In his 1956 collage Just What Is It That Makes Today's Homes So Different, So Appealing? he saw the consumer society in all its TV ad glory when most Britons were still trudging smoggy streets of postwar austerity. With its framed comic, tinned ham sculpture, television, tape recorder and a bodybuilder clutching a giant lolly labelled POP, Hamilton's ideal home was the manifesto of pop art. In these pictures, the famous and the gifted return a favour, and portray a man who chronicled the rise of pop culture. John Lennon and Paul McCartney snap the artist who designed The White Album.

I know there are Christians in the world who believe in old earth creation. Fine. No need to argue about that-it's a matter of liberty, not a heaven or *** issue, as Ken Ham stated in the debate last night. But please, please, PLEASE, for the love of God do not “side” with Bill Nye on any of his other beliefs, especially if you call yourself a Christian.   Do not “side” with a man who took every single opportunity to speak to arrogantly mock Christian scientists and warn the country about some supposed threat to society and scientific advancement by people who hold Biblical worldview. Do not encourage persecution of Christian faith for the sake of being “right” about the origin of life. Please.   I'm encouraging people (especially Christians) to reexamine some the points Bill Nye made in the debate last night insinuating that faith is the enemy of reason. Faith and reason do not conflict each other at all! In fact, faith is necessary for reason.   Everyone who exercises reason uses faith i ...

LOVE IS THE DEVIL (dir. John Maybury) The film concerns the Irish born English figurative painter Francis Bacon, and focuses on his life in the early 1960's when he was one of the central figures in a group of dissipated and debauched intellectuals at the Colony Room, a private drinking club in London's Soho district. Bacon's portrait style during this period is reminiscent of the work of contemporary American artist, Ralph Steadman in that both artists render their subjects in a bloated or garishly distorted manner. And, John Maybury, the director of LOVE IS THE DEVIL conveys this aspect of Bacon's painting style by shooting parts of the film using curious time-lapsed techniques, odd camera angles, and blurred optical abnormalities that really highlight Francis Bacon's cracked artistic vision. Derek Jacobi is note perfect as the dissolute, alcoholic painter, and Daniel Craig is surprisingly convincing as Bacon's thuggish lover, George Dyer. And, Tilda Swinton is positively devastating as Muriel Belcher, ...

Hope Quotes These quotations will give you hope and build your faith. Don’t lose Hope. Allow the hope of God to flow into you. God’s hope encourages, motivates, and keeps you on the road to faith, peace, and victory. Hopelessness breeds and creates the ‘feeling‘ of depression. Hope is the road, Faith is the victory. Martin Luther – “Everything that is done in the world is done by hope.” Unknown – Don’t worry, the fog will lift. Rex Rouis – “Hope is the raw material from which faith builds the house.” Alexandre Dumas – All human wisdom is summed up in two words: wait and hope. John Fitzgerald Kennedy – We should not let our fears hold us back from pursuing our hopes. Randy Furco - You can have hope without faith, but you can not have faith without hope! Helen Keller – Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence. Aristotle – “Hope is a waking dream.” [This has also been attributed to Pindar and Plato.] Francis Bacon – ...

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY 7th January 1536 Catherine of Aragon, first wife of Henry VIII of England and mother of Mary I, died, at Kimbolton Castle in Cambridgeshire where she had lived since Henry annulled their marriage. The Pope had declined the request for an annulment, but Henry married his mistress Anne Boleyn regardless, a chain of events that led to England's break with the Roman Catholic Church. 1558 English forces were ousted from the French port of Calais, led by the Duke of Guise.

 A. E. Mander: "Thinking is skilled work. It is not true that we are naturally endowed with the ability to think clearly and logically - without learning how, or without practicing. People with untrained minds should no more expect to think clearly and logically than people who have never learned and never practiced can expect to find themselves good carpenters, golfers, bridge players, or pianists." Francis Bacon, 1605, “Critical thinking is a desire to seek, patience to doubt, fondness to meditate, slowness to assert, readiness to consider, carefulness to dispose and set in order; and hatred for every kind of imposture.” Everyone thinks; however, much of our thinking is reactive, biased, uninformed and often prejudiced. More often than not, it is also haphazard and undisciplined. Critical thinking helps us balance our emotions, which in turn leads to good judgment and making informed, good decisions.

Very much enjoyed the 'Elizabeth I & her people' exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery with Bob today (the tickets were one of Bob's Xmas presents). My favourite was the portrait of a young and moody-looking John Donne.

Daily Rituals: How Great Minds Make Time, Find Inspiration and Get to Work by Mason Currey How exactly do the finest artists and writers operate? This absorbing book reveals their working routines Daisy Goodwin Published: 8 December 2013 Comment (2) Print Creative spaces: Francis BaconCreative spaces: Francis Bacon (Sipa Press/REX) The French novelist Gustave Flaubert once said, “Be steady and well-ordered in your life so that you can be violent and original in your work.” Judging from the daily routines of the great artists collected by Mason Currey in this utterly fascinating compendium, unbridled creativity seems to flourish best when it is underpinned by the steady rhythm of unvarying diurnal repetition. But as his book reveals, while the fact of the daily routine may be uniform, the shape those routines take is anything but. It is 7am. Benjamin Franklin is having his daily air bath, where he sits naked inside or outside, depending on the season. John Cheever is nipping down to the pantry to pour ...

And so begins Thanksgiving Week. I’m still in recoup mode from the weekend—at least a little bit, anyway—but awake and aware enough for a few observations. THE DEAL OF THE ART: According to “New York” magazine, the $142 million recently paid in an art sale for a Francis Bacon triptych surpasses, by $4 million, the entire annual budget for the National Endowment for the Arts. Priorities? LETTERS OF THE ALPHABET THAT *** OFF CONSERVATIVES: I just realized that two of the Rabid Right’s favorite punching bags both have “NEA” as their initials: the just-mentioned National Endowment for the Arts, and the National Education Association. Clearly, artists and educators are doing something right. BREAD—AND, ON THE ROADS, CIRCUSES: Local weather forecasts call for **what could be** light snow tomorrow morning, transitioning to a “wintry mix” and subsequently all rain.

Francis Bacon was born on January 22, 1561 in London, England. Bacon served as attorney general and Lord Chancellor of England, resigning amid charges of corruption. His more valuable work was philosophical. Bacon took up Aristotelian ideas, arguing for an empirical, inductive approach, known as the scientific method, which is the foundation of modern scientific inquiry.

DROP THAT REVENGE PLAN! Roms 12: 19 reads "Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves... For it is written vengeace is mine; I will repay, says the LORD." NB:VENGEANCE IS MINE!

Six degrees of Francis Bacon. Tracing the influence & ideas of Bacon, Shakespeare, Isaac Newton:
To return to Francis Bacon, he once opined, “They are ill discoverers that think there is no land, when they can see nothing but sea.”[1] Believers would offer advice to Atheists and Agnostics alike that God exists, whether seen or not, whether desired or not, whether considered proven or not. Argument to the contrary is just a distraction from a reality which will unfold as undeniable truth on a future day of joy for some, deep regret and horror for others. A great many people need not await the Day of Judgement to entertain such a conclusion, for all people faced with insurmountable trials find themselves drawn to belief, for when faced with desperate circumstances, Who else do people instinctively call upon other than God? Although few make good on the promises of fidelity made at such moments of desperate appeal, the evidence of the oath remains long after the promises to God are cast aside to lie neglected in the gutters of the memory. Can anybody help the insincere? Very likely not. The con ...

Why Edward Snowden's Leaks Have Empowered All of Us Edward Snowden has to some degree fragmented and dispersed the concentrated power of capital and the state. July 2, 2013 | If the expression knowledge is power - attributed to the English Renaissance philosopher Francis Bacon - is true, then it implies, among other things, that its opposite is also true. That is, if knowledge is power, then the lack of knowledge, or ignorance, amounts to a lack of, or exclusion from, power. As such, removing, obscuring, or hiding knowledge - in a word, secrecy - not only creates power, it produces powerlessness, weakness, and vulnerability as well. Indeed, as Elias Canetti phrased it in his Crowds and Power: "Secrecy lies at the very core of power." As the state, then, acquires ever more knowledge/power through such programs as PRISM, 'the people' in general - in spite of the State's dubious claims of enhancing security and safety - are only further weakened, put into an ever more vulnerable, precarious position. In add ...

Is it possible if you could tell me the intent of painting "Memories of Arusha" the way it is painted. Why the dripping paint? Thank you sir.
A Time When My Writing Meant Something More...   In a message dated 5/28/02 12:31:03 PM Eastern Daylight Time Carlawrote to me and I responded... Below is our exchange:   You wrote:   “Education today is based on insane and false paradigms and how we arrived here goes back to Francis Bacon, Jesuit, intellectuality and Jan Amos Comenius.”   But somewhere there must be an "outline" or model for learning, no? In reading the url you sent it seems that the "ideals" of learning through experience and with self discipline do not, to me, seem like a model of education today.  If we are speaking of consciousness here, and not education, per se, I am interested in what everyone thinks of time collapsing.   Time is actually speeding up (or collapsing). For thousands of years the Schumann Resonance or pulse (heartbeat) of Earth has been 7.83 cycles per second, The military have used this as a very reliable reference. However, since 1980 this resonance has been slowly rising. It is now over 12 cycles per sec ...

We lost our friend Roger Brace on Friday morning. He'd fought a ferocious battle against cancer for twenty years, taking it on as a mortal enemy and fighting it like a Tasmanian devil. Over the years his treatment had virtually wiped out his immune system which resulted in almost every infection he'd suffered turning to septicemia. This condition hospitalized him over 60 times, a number he'd been told was a European record, and every time he'd spat in its eye, picked himself up , and come back for another round, boosted by a regular supply of red wine and golden virginia rollies An artist almost all his adult life as a young man he exhibited alongside Francis Bacon and continued to create his unique work, painting almost 'till the end. Single minded, opinionated, sometimes angry, often funny and a wonderful teller of tales, immensely brave and never one for self pity, he leaves a ragged hole with his passing.

Who taught the ant to bite every grain of corn that she burieth in her hill, lest it should take root and grow?" ~ Francis Bacon

"Does the Bible say that an increase in technology is a sign of the end times?" Answer: Many people over the years have proposed that there would be an increase in technology as the end times approach. Among those espousing this view were renowned scientists Isaac Newton and Francis Bacon. On the frontispiece of Bacon's Instauratio Magna, ships of learning were depicted passing by the limits of human knowledge, with a quote in Latin from Daniel 12:4. In more recent times, this belief has been supported in books like Future Shock by Alvin Toffler and The Bible Code by Michael Drosnin. In Future Shock, first published in 1970, Toffler described the results of the rapid advancement of technology he had observed in the 1950s and 1960s. As technology brought ever faster changes in society, certain people were left on the sidelines, unable to cope with the speed of change. That stress and disorientation in people was dubbed “future shock.” Toffler did not attempt to use the Bible in his work, but the concep ...
No Such Thing As Easy Faith: "Faith simply means obeying God’s will in spite of feelings, circumstances, or consequences. To walk by faith means to see opportunities even in the midst of opposition; looking at them from the divine point of view. There never was an easy place to serve God; and if there is an easy place, it is possible that something is wrong." Wiersbe (1996) “All who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution” - Paul the Apostle “Prosperity is the blessing of the Old Testament, adversity is the blessing of the New” - Francis Bacon

John Locke 29 August 1632 – 28 October 1704), widely known as the Father of Classical Liberalism, was an English philosopher and physician regarded as one of the most influential of Enlightenment thinkers. Considered one of the first of the British empiricists, following the tradition of Francis Bacon, he is equally important to social contract theory. His work had a great impact upon the development of epistemology and political philosophy. His writings influenced Voltaire and Rousseau, many Scottish Enlightenment thinkers, as well as the American revolutionaries. His contributions to classical republicanism and liberal theory are reflected in the United States Declaration of Independence. Locke's theory of mind is often cited as the origin of modern conceptions of identity and the self, figuring prominently in the work of later philosophers such as Hume, Rousseau and Kant. Locke was the first to define the self through a continuity of consciousness. He postulated that the mind was a blank slate or ta ...
Augustan literature (1700–1750) During the 18th century literature reflected the worldview of the Age of Enlightenment (or Age of Reason): a rational and scientific approach to religious, social, political, and economic issues that promoted a secular view of the world and a general sense of progress and perfectibility. Led by the philosophers who were inspired by the discoveries of the previous century by people like Isaac Newton and the writings of Descartes, John Locke and Francis Bacon. They sought to discover and to act upon universally valid principles governing humanity, nature, and society. They variously attacked spiritual and scientific authority, dogmatism, intolerance, censorship, and economic and social restraints. They considered the state the proper and rational instrument of progress. The extreme rationalism and skepticism of the age led naturally to deism; the same qualities played a part in bringing the later reaction of romanticism. The Encyclopédie of Denis Diderot epitomized the spi ...
