That is awsome and I want to assure you..this is not a contest..we can all put ego aside here..and enjoy..well done again.
You understand materials the way some understand the digital..that really does put you in a unique group you know. I remember reading about the skits of wells radio productions where they took at hand objects to mimi those sounds of the Aliens leaving their craft..fooled a whole country..That takes creativity.

hmm klatt..I don't know..
http://www.alexa.com/site/linksin;4/illuminatiwatcher.com
I think I understand what you are saying...but..
that could be any number of artists or fans.. that subscribe to that site..
there are over 139 that link in..ffrom ats to white power groups to martinlutherking.Its typical allusions to masonic-ufology-manson cults...they missed the lizards..so no drone themes there or connections to our stuff ..site created feb 2012..and tightlipped who owns..We must bear in mind..to be fair .. Religious or political ideations do not preclude one from being a good artist...


@meinster..that backlight on that very efffective..I did some double folded priints when I was in school..never thought of doing like that here..

The Drone was and always will be a vehicle transporting what we wish..light..or darkness..In most natural state..it is us.
It was and always will be a heavenly horse. The West had its Pegasus..and the Chinese have their Red Tiammen Ma revered for its role in pushig back the Mongols during the Wuid Dynasty..I was fascinated by the symbols and the red paint on this old Chinese painting .

Rare horse in deed..just coincidental it came up in honoring MysteRed in a totally unrelated thread. grin
I think the allusion to Heavenly gate in Tianamen Square comes to my mind as well..Tragic day when the Gates not of Heaven but Hell opened. on a completely unarmed population.. Want to see a Real Red Room.?

Very interesting interpretive work and good to see some of the old video from the lev group.. ..new pieces added as well..maybe it is time to stop praying and start preparing..Is there a dark mind..a dark soul..enveloping us all..if love is one soul sharing many bodies..what of the opposite...?

Musing as Art..Drops of Colour and Oils in water .Philosophies accompany every twist and turn..dissolved bearing no resemblance to what began..creation containing the seeds of its own dissolution from cradle to grave..Sys


By Reasoner
I'm almost afraid to post this...

Aren't we all allowed to drink the saki and spout off at least once a year? Perhaps I've imbibed too much recently and need to be cut off, but...

There's always been a couple of fascinating things about the drones. One of the key things is how elaborate and how diffusive it was. Was it planned? Was it elaborately created by people on earth? And why is drone art so... well it's fairly specific isn't it. For such a long time, I associated it with gears all interconnected like parts to a machine.

But what if the purpose isn't to specify parts to a machine, but different interlocking parts - parts to a process? Don't they all look like what alien warlocks might use as conjuration circles and nodes? What if the whole drone conspiracy is more meant to be a hidden drone message? To convey a hidden meaning beyond standard aliens or government covert agenda? Maybe the drone message is a warning on what you believe in. That the conspiracy blankets itself as other conspiracies, and that those true powers-that-be are content to allow the public to dwell in misconception.

If we look at the drone art offered less as schematics and more as rituals and incantations... it points to the "alien other" as being more demonic in origin. Perhaps the hoaxers' purpose was never for monetary profit or notoriety at all. One cannot overtly go on about demonic infestation on earth. Even saying it could invite doom on the speaker, since they aren't governed by space or distance. Where could you hide?

And when you think that the end of the world keeps getting bandied about by nutjobs and false prophets, who does that hinder? The masses. They are lulled into false comfort. Believers in benevolent aliens? False comfort. That the government is bad? Fixate on that, and perhaps you fix the government instead of spending time fixing yourself, preparing for tribulation. Tribulation becomes something like a scriptural footnote when the end of the world has come and gone so many times before without effect. Those few who do preach the aliens are really demons tend to be a few screws loose themselves.

Maybe they aren't the demons that we can understand or know, but perhaps the ancients had some inkling to what they were about, but being ancients, they lacked the ability to convey it accurately to future generations. All they could do is mention "demons" and leave a code of laws to govern the peoples bodily and in spirit, and make note of a time of reckoning as a warning.

Perhaps there is some gate we need to be aware of, a philosophical or metaphysical gate that is what the Christian bible talks about the path to Heaven being narrow with a small gate and the road to hell being wide and paved with good intentions and probably a gleaming and attractive gate. That would mean rapture is the occurrence of the closing of the gate (to Heaven), and once fully closed, these alien demon things have us. How long might that be? What would predicate the closing of the gate? Would it be of the demons' choosing? So when they feel they can finally seal the deal and net the most souls? Or is it when heaven decides, the last souls worthy are "written in the book" and the gate activates? Might that be sooner than later? A century? A decade?

Sorry. Just musing. It's an interesting different angle. I think the drone art sort of all of the sudden jogged this subliminal inkling out of me. I kept thinking how they always appeared as a sort of schematic but in the way modeling languages operate, based on class and behavior, not just operation. Also the symbols. Instead of thinking of them as alien symbols, I thought of them in terms of magical symbols. Eh. Maybe I should have posted this instead in the Angels section.

Very nicely said

Arthur Reyes

Seeking Balance
Painting on Lifes canvass

“Most of the members are older men, and they amass ridiculously large collections of unbuilt kits,” he said. “Finally they realize that even if they drop everything they’ll never get to them all, so they sell some of them for significantly less than they paid.”

And Reyes reaps the benefits.

He began building models at about age 5, but his interest waned in high school. “A lot of boys start that way. But a few, after college, realize that they used to have some hobbies and they’re looking for a way to relax and have fun.”

Reyes returned to plastic models when he was in graduate school and continues to make time for them every week.

Professor Arthur Reyes in a meditative pose
Dr. Reyes credits his daily meditation routine with helping unclutter his mind. He advises UTA's Meditation Club, which begins each meeting with 20 minutes of Tai Chi.

“It’s very relaxing. Plus, I think it’s actually very primitive, this connection we have with our hands and our eyes and our minds. We have to build stuff. It’s part of us.”

However, this engineer doesn’t just throw plastic parts together in a random fashion. Calling on his computer expertise, he carefully monitors the progress of each project.

“My method is based on a software development method named Personal Software Process,” he explained. “I make a detailed plan using Microsoft Project, and I keep track of the actual duration of each task. I use these data to track my productivity. My goal in the hobby is to produce models that can win prizes in ‘stock’ contest categories (that is, build-the-kit-as-it-came-out-of-the-box) as fast as possible.”

According to his records, Reyes spends an average of 12 hours on each model. But he continually strives to work faster and better.

“My own challenge to myself is to be more disciplined and productive,” he said. “What’s important to me is actually completing a kit.”

The raw material varies from kit to kit. Some, Reyes calls “just awful,” while the precision pieces in others can lead to models of museum quality. Every kit requires an eye for painstaking detail and a painter’s steady hand.

Dr. Reyes is working to create a family legacy with his hobby, encouraging his two daughters to build kits and to create their own paint schemes. “My main goal in sharing this with my daughters is to teach them three things — follow instructions, calm down and work on a project to completion.

“I’ve actually been very surprised at how happy this simple activity makes me,” he added. “There’s a tremendous satisfaction in just finishing.”

Reyes also finds satisfaction in another calming activity, daily meditation, and he serves as faculty adviser to the UTA Meditation Club. The group meets weekly and begins each session with 20 minutes of the Chinese discipline Tai Chi.

“Then we sit down and we chant,” he said. “This is something foreign to Western culture, but it calms your mind and cuts down on the crazy jumble that’s usually running through your mind. Plus there’s evidence indicating that meditation offers a lot of health benefits.

“I just can’t get over how good it feels.”

He credits meditation with bringing tremendous benefits to his life.

“I stopped being a jerk. I used to insist on having my own way all the time. Living with that as your life goal is exhausting.”

How does he integrate his modeling hobby, meditation and an academic career with a busy family life?

“When I work on plastic models, they consume my full attention,” he said. “When I meditate, I empty my mind of everything else. When I’m at UTA, I give UTA my day, and when I’m at home, I give my time to my family.

“The thing that ties it all together is my desire for balance.”


And you did Arthur.It was the world out of balance you left behind...I always wanted you to be the Isaac of our story..But you stood out too brilliantly towering above the others
and when you left us..It really did seem a darker place.
But you left behind and touched so many ..a chance..to make it brighter than you could have ever imagined..and more importantly..make it right..

I'd be disingenuous if I ignored the other side..
Drone Art as Protest
held in 2012..at the organization UTA was a part of.


And as important as any other aspect of the Isaac story..assuming that we are all looking for a truth..that is..
Truth be told.. cool
