The Depths in our Steps

Sept2015_LabyrinthWithinMazesResearching for something completely off topic this morning, the discovery of this labyrinth within the mazes held some intrigue on the surface, and as I looked further I found more.

It seems there are 12 mazes that one can pass through to open into the labyrinth from the perimeter as if indeed it reminds us that the answers are in the interior.

Indeed this image of the Hawara Labyrinth located just south of Cairo, where it rests well below the Earth’s surface tucked into a palace of immense proportion. It is described as a labyrinth, a brain and a pyramid. It is of ancient origin, where explorers and acheologists knew of its sub existence even in the time of Herodotus in 450BC.  The labyrinth is said to be at the center of a palace of 3,000 rooms located on two different levels, where the head of the pyramid deceptively rests upon a sprawling complexity of layers many miles wide and deep.

This labyrinth has only been one of the elements that have intrigued many through the years, though because of its extensive age, anticipated content and expansiveness, there is a consciousness to develop less destructive ways with technology  to explore before excavation.  Klaus Dona, an engineering pioneer  has used space archeology to uncover the image of the labyrinth shown above.  This pioneering technology reached six kilometers below the surface using quantum physics and standing columnar waves, and for all its complexity to the lay person this might be more simply imagined as the science similar to our retail bar codes.

Curiosity spurred on a compelling interview with Dr. Carmen Boulter of Calgary, who has been searching for this labyrinth and the palace for 25 years. This search yields a depth of process and progress where this insightfully accurate technology invites breakthroughs for the modern world beyond ancient excavation.

I think the message in this excavation is simply to know that there is always much more in store and when we examine our situations with more carefully or by utilizing tools of technology to yield a lens that shines a new pathway to a foundational core.

Always looking for a way to look at how we might increase the value of our daily walk, this unearthed image led to a depth of perspective that really broadened the lesson of curiosity, persistence and patience and a reminder to look for the opportunity to use our future to discover our past. As people of great compassion, we discover there is always more beneath the surface.

The Time of Technology

Bar Code Labyrinth

From the Journal of Creative Expression by A. E. Souzis

Today marks the anniversary of the Bar Code, also code the UPC code for Universal Product Code. It was first used in 1974 so it has been part of our technological life for 39 years. The idea to create a systematic approach to label food products actually began with a graduate student in 1948 and it took until 1981 to be formally adopted industrially. Though here it is today a standard part of our process of consumerism.

While the Bar Code has been a feature of art and imagery over the years, this use of it as a labyrinth will hopefully catch your eye and perhaps make us all think of the fact that when we walk we are indeed like the scanner picking up the readable threads of what we see, though more significantly reading beneath the surface to what we feel. This might be those white lines of the universe that encompass all where the dark lines are a bit of form and structure for the all to flow in and out of.

It is always a creative pleasure to witness how man makes and molds the life around him/her to display perspective. Just a wonder about what life was like before we barcoded, the curiousness mind that designs a difference, and the one that sees it differently through the eyes of artistry.
