The classical references continue. Seneca first, now Hume.
I still haven't figured out that grid, but the diagram Thomas has overlaid atop the brain is the Golden Ratio, delightfully explained (including its relationship to the Fibonacci sequence) in this piece by our old friend Dean Allen. The Golden Ratio is a fine companion to the Hume quote, as it represents ideal proportions. But: it's also about the infinite -- the spiral that's generated by the pattern will never stop. As Dean wrote, I don't know much about math, but I know what I like.
The volleys have quieted since Thomas's typographically exuberant serve. More than anything, it's the color palette that's shifting shot-to-shot. Not sure what to make of the color here. Perhaps, as with Freud's quip that cigars sometimes are just cigars, a shade of blue is sometimes just a shade of blue.
