06/01/2019 - 78 years ago today, the longest-serving #UnitedStates #President, #Franklin D. #Roosevelt (#FDR) addressed the 77th #Congress with his "#Four #Freedoms" speech with the intent to shift #US #foreign #policy from that of #neutrality to #interventionist.
#FDR promoted the idea that the people of the world, in all nations, shared entitlement to four freedoms: that of the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want and the freedom from fear.
#FDR is arguably one of the most 'successful' #US Presidents. Some would argue that on the basis of his numerous social policies such as 'the New Deal'. Others, however, would argue that his role during the second world war was more prevalent to his success & everlasting legacy.

#OSHO

The #human #order is #chaos within, a #cosmos just on the periphery, skin deep at the most
There are two types of #order in the #world: one man-made, another divine.

Man-made order is just make-believe. It is not really an order, it only hides disorder. Deep down the #anarchy continues. On the surface, you are befooled, as if there is an order.
Just the opposite is the case with the #divine order.

On the surface there is #chaos, and deep down in the depths, there is #order. On the surface, there are great waves, and the ocean is silent deep within. The center has a #cosmos in it, and the periphery has chaos on it.

That filing and reactions to it have brought to mind Stephen Fry’s brilliant insight about human nature and ignorance: “The only reason people do not know much is because they do not care to know. They are incurious. Incuriousity is the oddest and most foolish failing there is.”

I thought it would be fun to just thread a bit about a particular piece - today "Transition to Chaos" #sciart #thermodynamics #order #klee #abstract

It's in my online portfolio here: nerdypainter.com/portfolio/tran…
"Transition to Chaos" is part of my "music and Machinery" group of paintings, which started from some experiments with geometric "mechanical" patterns of warmer, cooler, darker, and lighter shapes - while at MIT . The early ones looked more like "gridlock", but in pencil
Here's a link for prints of Gridlock. The original is currently leased (if that's of interest, talk to abby "at" turningart "dot" com)

and a detail that really evokes those earlier pencil drawings (I'll try to find one)
