Heaven in a Wild Flower


SCIENCE now understands that mother nature was ahead of her time in understanding the quantum universe.

The dance of honey bees, and spiral galaxies, Fritjof Capra’s The Tao of Physics, and Yogi Berra all got it right.

It’s back to the future all over again. Poetry, plants, religions, even materialists and atheists—all have a lot more in common as we’ll see.

Celebrated artist-poet William Blake spoke of how he saw “a world in a grain of sand, and heaven in a wild flower,” and how you could

“Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.”

Children at play — left to their own instincts and intuitions unsmothered by parental intimidations — engage the delights of spontaneous imagination. Theirs is an unselfconscious, non-ideological purity of intent.

  1. This is so beautiful and awe-inspiring. It makes one want to know more, evolve more, jump into wisdom. Just imagine — eternity in everything. Amazing.

  2. The fractals look like little seated Buddhas with arms outstretched!

  3. Pancharakshas

    Really nice piece, Odin! How did you get so inspired to do this? 🙂
