Philanthropy and the renaissance, particularly under the direction of Lorenzo de’ Medici, was focused on the promotion of Beauty, Truth, and Wisdom. For the cost of one of today’s superyachts, Medici was able to fund much of the renaissance for 30 years.

With more wealth in the world than ever before, is it time for a new renaissance?

Lego Pop-Up House Construction

If you’ve ever fantasized about living in a real-life Lego home, your dream could finally come true.

French architecture firm Multipod Studio recently unveiled a prototype for the PopUp House, a customizable home made from stackable blocks. It can be designed, ordered, and built in about a month.

Check out the design for the first homes, located in the pine valleys of Southern France.

And you thought building Ikea furniture was daunting.

Dr. Masaru Emoto’s Water Experiment

you are water
I’m water
we’re all water in different containers
that’s why it’s so easy to meet
someday we’ll evaporate together

but even after the water’s gone
we’ll probably point out to the containers
and say, “that’s me there, that one.”
we’re container minders

– Yoko Ono, 1967

 

Dr. Masaru Emoto’s Water Experiment reminds me of Yoko Ono’s “We’re all Water,” except this adds a fascinating metaphysical element. If words, music, and environment can alter water in such profound ways, imagine how we are all affected, considering humans are 60% water.

 

Through the 1990’s, Dr. Masaru Emoto performed a series of experiments observing the physical effect of words, prayers, music and environment on the crystalline structure of water. Emoto hired photographers to take pictures of water after being exposed to the different variables and subsequently frozen so that they would form crystalline structures. The results were nothing short of remarkable.

I come from Wisconsin

I’ve been trying to track down this track for years.

 

“My name is Yon Yonson,
I come from Wisconsin.
I work in a lumber mill there.
When I walk down the street,
The people I meet.
Say: What’s your name?
And I say:
My name is Yon Yonson,
I come from Wisconsin.
I work in a lumber mill there…”
