There is a great discussion brewing over at Carto Talk over here.
You mean to tell me that they're finally getting around to thinking about this stuff? Crikey. Some cross-pollination seems to be in order. We can learn some technical things from them and they can learn some beauty things from us.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
-J. Robert Oppenheimer (father of the atom bomb) alluding to The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 11, Verse 32)
