When harry dropped the another man cover, Niall dropped the this town single. Now Liam will drop his magazine cover. Will Harry drop his single? Patterns everywhere

That would be funny if they did that again. Would also be curious coordination considering they’re with different labels/managers/etc. We’ll see what happens over the next few weeks….

Wing AU? Saru with dark, slim, beautiful wings. The Kings have the biggest, strongest wings. I imagine Munakata with dark wings with blue flame coming from the edges, and Mikoto has wings of fire. Nagare's wings are white, like Anna's, but they crackle with green electricity. Yata's wings look like bright orange fire and he loves to wrap Fushimi up in them~ Thoughts?

I’m imagining that say in this AU everyone is born with small white wings that then grow into something else as they get older and people are judged on the quality and size of their wings, like the most successful and talented people tend to have really huge wing spans and super impressive wings – and only those with larger wings can actually fly too so there’s like this unspoken caste system that tends to look down more on people whose wings are considered too small or deformed somehow. Niki probably has these terrible hellfire wings, all red feathers tinged in black and the feathers are really jagged and sharp looking but even so he can fly a little with them. When Fushimi’s little Niki plucks a bunch of feathers from his little baby white wings, leaving a bunch of bald spots where the feathers haven’t grown back, and due to the combination of stress and neglect some of Fushimi’s other feathers fall out entirely. By the time he reaches middle school his ‘true’ wings have started to come in but it’s no comfort, his wings are this really dark murky black (and having black wings is considered a bad sign, like if your pure white wings have gone black there must be something wrong with you) and there are spots where the feathers are mottled in white or red, places where his feathers originally fell out. His feathers are a mess too, all different sizes and angles and his wings are far too slim to allow him to fly. Fushimi pretty much doesn’t give a shit though because of course his wings would be the kind that he couldn’t fly with and anyway he’s not like all those other idiots walking around trying to show their wings off or brag about their wingspan.

That’s when he meets Yata, who has these red and orange wings that look like a fire, but they’re really fluffy and the feathers are soft. Yata can’t quite fly with them but when he’s on his skateboard if he extends them behind him he feels like he’s flying anyway (oh oh imagine the scene from LSW with Fushimi, Yata and Aya on the bike, Yata’s got his wings out and they’re like stretching on either side of Fushimi so it feels like he’s in a tunnel of flames but he’s not scared at all, and behind Fushimi there’s Aya with her slim pink swan-like wings outstretched and then Fushimi unconsciously starts to stretch his too, the wings he always keeps hunched close and never spreads fully and for the first time in his life he really feels like he’s flying, there on the back on Yata’s bike). Yata’s the first person who thinks Fushimi’s wings are really cool, like look at how sleek they are and the black is so striking and the feathers feel super smooth, Yata loves running his fingers through Fushimi’s wings. Fushimi acts like he doesn’t care what Yata thinks of his wings but it always makes his breath catch a little, when Yata tells him how amazing his wings are. When the two of them move in together sometimes they lie side by side on Yata’s bunk discussing their plans for all the great things they’re going to do and Yata wraps his wings around Fushimi so that it feels like they’re living in this small cozy world, just the two of them, and sometimes Fushimi’s wings stretch just a bit to touch Yata’s, connecting just a little bit.

So then the surprise party incident happens and that’s when they meet Mikoto who has the biggest wings Yata and Fushimi have ever seen, these huge red ones with real fire blossoming along the edges and when Mikoto uses his Red King powers to the full extent his wings burst entirely into flame and it’s like a fireball. The rest of Homra have wings that are touched by fire in some way too – maybe people don’t just have feathered wings in this AU too, imagine Totsuka with wings that look like they belong to one of his flame butterflies (Anna’s ‘true’ wings are just coming in, downy white mixed with hints of red, and when she awakens as King all the white feathers fall to the ground like rain as she extends her red burning wings wide, a wingspan even greater than Mikoto’s, a phoenix rising). Fushimi’s actually afraid of Mikoto’s wings especially, like he can’t help but flinch every time Mikoto opens his wings fully. He’s also secretly jealous because Yata is so impressed that Mikoto-san can fly, and of course Fushimi knows that he’ll never be able to match that.

Then Fushimi meets Munakata and Munakata’s the only one he’s seen whose wings can rival Mikoto’s except Munakata’s are these sleek cobalt blue ones, growing brighter around the edges, just this amazing gradient of blue upon blue and Munakata loves to spread them wide whenever he’s making grand pronouncements. When he’s not trying to be impressive though Munakata keeps his wings neatly folded and sometimes they almost look like part of his uniform. Fushimi can’t help but feel drawn to those wings somehow and when Munakata tries to recruit him maybe instead of Fushimi’s leg moving unconsciously to Munakata’s side one wing opens on that side instead. Fushimi breaks things off like in canon, burning his tattoo and all, but maybe after he and Yata part he spots a fallen feather from Yata’s wings and ends up keeping it despite himself. Meanwhile Yata goes to pack up their old apartment and he finds one of Fushimi’s feathers. He wants to burn it into nothing but he can’t bring himself to do it, keeping it with him like tucked in his hat somehow and maybe it was one of those mottled feathers, black and red, and the whole time Fushimi thinks Yata’s been keeping one of Mikoto’s feathers when it’s actually his.

Then jungle, imagine Hisui’s wings aren’t real ones at all but these giant electricity ones that the Slate kinda made for him because when Hisui 'died’ his real wings hadn’t come in yet and being technically dead he couldn’t grow his real ones anymore. But the desire for them is there and the shape remains rooted in Hisui’s soul, how they should look, and the Slate answers that desire by giving him a mock version of what he should have. When the undercover mission happens Fushimi and Munakata fight and maybe Munakata makes a comment about Fushimi’s wings, the black color and how they’re so small and thin and useless, he’ll never fly with them and they’re really almost malformed in a way, just like Fushimi’s own twisted loyalties. Fushimi tries not to take that to heart but of course he does, even as he intends to carry out Munakata’s plan to the end.

Yata of course shows up to save Fushimi and when they escape Yata’s having trouble keeping ahead of Sukuna, like he’s on his skateboard with Fushimi on his back and Sukuna’s so close to catching up, and there are holes in the floor that Yata’s worried he won’t be able to skateboard over. Yata finally yells at Fushimi that they need to fly, Fushimi clicks his tongue because neither one of them can fly, idiot, and Yata’s just like shut up, I can’t fly on my own but if you’re with me we can definitely do it. They reach like this giant gap in the floor and Yata stretches his wings out, speeding up, determined to fly over it and save Fushimi. Fushimi stares at Yata in surprise and he finds his own wings stretching out too, all the way, the two of them flapping in unison as they just soar over the gap, completely airborne and in control and breathless for just a moment. Afterward Fushimi tries to act like it was nothing but Yata’s not giving up that easily, saying this is why he’s not letting Fushimi push him away again – sure they aren’t Kings and they can’t fly alone, but that’s why they’re supposed to be together because the only way Yata can soar is if Fushimi’s by his side.

Ita is that kind of person who’s excited and happy about everything ever! Some of the stuff that grows on him might have a say in that and I don’t think he ever manages to get sober, but somehow it works for him. He also probably carries like 1000 incense sticks wherever he goes.

Originally, Chroma was a mess of color and path patterns and flower beds everywhere - and I was super bored with it and unhappy. I tore down everything and started again recently. I toned everything back a LOT, and now I’m slowly bringing back what I liked, without going overboard. I think a found a nice middle ground. I’ve brought back some of the colorful paths, but it’s a little more organized. I’ve got my staggered rainbow roses in many of the flower beds, but they surround other things, so it’s not just giant fields of flowers. I need to update the dream address soon.

Look, man.  I was raised differently to you, okay?  I wasn’t raised in a house with a supportive family, encouraging me to share my feelings.  And in your case, every feeling.  The McGarrett men are a different breed.

Something that I’ve always found pretty interesting is the treatment of ‘art’ as 'science’. That is, the idea that just like with how building something has rules (physics) and that the same thing will almost always work in similar situations being applied to creating art, as well. It’s actually more true than most people (especially the average artist) will acquiesce to, since I think a lot of creators like to keep a bit of mysticism to what they do.

It’s also pretty funny, since once you start seeing one of these patterns you’ll see them everywhere, cause there really are a handful of tricks that are applied widely to creative works, at least those with narratives and characters. One of the most common (especially these days) is something I’m going to call the 'half-developed cast’. Or maybe the 'Two-Dimensional Cast’? Whatever, I’m not a linguist.

Keep in mind that I don’t think what I’m describing is objectively 'good’ or 'bad’, I’m just pointing out a pattern and the fact it’s definitely effective. It’s like the 'blue and orange’ thing. Not exactly good or bad, but interesting and once you see it you’ll see it fucking EVERYWHERE

The basic idea is that by creating a cast of characters that have more depth than the standard 'one-dimensional’ character but less depth than a fully flexed out character you might find in a more elaborate, thorough work, you can cause a wider audience to relate and project upon your cast than you would with either well-developed characters or one-dimensional ones. Why will the audience project more on a half-developed character than a fully-developed one? Well, I’ll tell you.

Humans are sort of, for lack of a better term, self-absorbed. We tend to think in terms of ourself; we assume how we would react to things is how others would as well. It’s sort of the cause of all human conflict. So a well-developed character is going to 'miss’ with a lot of people. But a half-developed character, with carefully placed holes for the audience to fill in themselves, can be very effective and allow a wider audience to relate with them than the fully-developed one. We’ll project our own feelings onto the character. It works. And a lot of works in recent years have had whole casts of them.

But it’s not as simple as that. There’s also a lot of other tricks used in tandem to make the characters 'pop’ with the audience. To help make them seem more distinct even though they aren’t, really. And these tricks are used in everything from children’s works, to works for teenagers, to works for adults.

Here’s some of the most common tricks.

  • The characters all have immediately recognizable silhouettes
  • The characters are all strongly tied to a single color
  • The characters have a unique accent or manner of speaking from the rest of the cast
  • The characters all have a unique symbol.

Let’s take a look at some things that are fairly popular, and see if these tricks are in use. At least some of them will be!

Yep.

M-hm.

Three!

Okay, let’s try stuff that isn’t for babies. Surely things aimed at an older audience wouldn’t use the same tricks, would it?

Or

Maybe

Not.

In works meant for straight-up adults they hide these tricks a bit better, but

They’re still in there.

The laws of life are written into every atom, molecule, and heartbeat. The clues to the great mystery are all around us! To understand the mysteries of life, you must look around and within. You will see patterns everywhere; patterns that seem to manifest themselves over and over again. These patterns exist intertwined within nature and man, bridging the gap between the enigma of self and the entire universe itself. You see them in spiraling galaxies and Mandelbrot fractals, and the logarithmic swirls of fossilized Ammonoidea — growing from the unknown to atoms, to molecules to solar systems, to galaxies to the furthest expanses of the universe, with origins and destinations unknown; just like us in birth and death. You see them in the similarities between tree branches, rivers and blood veins, the patterns of fingerprints like endoplasmic reticulum, or a black opal’s play of fire like the nebula of a supernova. Moon shots are like protoplasmic lurches, while simple thoughts and observations of the nature around us take us beyond the unknown. The clues to the great mystery are all around us and deep within us. We are all immersed in the sweet law of unfolding mystery called life. — Bryant McGill

SACRED GEOMETRY: An Introduction

by  Saṃsāran

What is meant by “sacred geometry”? Well, in its simplest terms it is the geometry which underlays all creation.  There are repeating geometric forms which can be seen in all existence from the atomic to the cosmic. They range from the simple and familiar such as circles, squares, triangles, spheres, cubes to the more complex such as hexagons, pentagons, spirals, toroids, fractals, helix to fourth dimensional  forms such as the hypercube and the hypersphere.  These forms make up all of our visual reality and their repetition and their combinations speak to the nature of reality and the underlying symmetry and order of the universe which may be at first indiscernible to the naked eye.

Clifford Torus: Fourth Dimensional Structure 

Once we have learned to recognize these forms and to understand a bit about the mathematical relationship between them a whole new world dawns for us. You’ll recognize these patterns everywhere.  You will see them in the shape of molecules within a crystal.  In the forms of the virus and cell.  In flowers, seeds and leaves.  In the structure of an insects eye.  You will see them in the cream in your coffee and in the shape of geological structures. 

You will see them in clouds and weather patterns.  You will see them in the structure of planets, their orbits in galaxies and in the fourth dimensional shape of the universe itself.

The shapes are a language.  They speak of relationships and patterns and those patterns are meaningful no matter what the scale.  The spiral in your coffee cup has the same relationship as the spiral of the galaxy.

Multiverses: Quantum Dimensions & Sacred Geometry

Let’s do a little thought exercise so we don’t have to resort to math, this is Tumblr after all. Imagine a point in space. A little “.” now extend it into space in both directions “__________”. Now rotate it:

now rotate the circle:

Now rotate the sphere and you get a fourth dimensional structure known as a hypersphere:

Every point is connected to every other point. Every single point in that solid sphere is rotated and each of these rotations is a dimension. They are infinite and vary only slightly one from the next yet within the structure everything that ever existed exists in infinite variation.
