Ah yes wonderful, warm sunlight beaming it brightness and life-giving rays on Mother Earth. The star that makes it all possible. We are made of star material and so is the entire universe around us. As it mystified ancient cultures before us, today we still marvel at it’s brilliance, it’s exact prominance in our daytime sky. It is not too far to create a frozen tundra, yet not to close to bake us out of existence. It’s essence is to provide us with the life sustaining ingredient of photosynthesis to our food cycle. This leads us to the Jean-Paul Sartre basic premise of the existentialist philosophy. There are two primary beings: itself (l’en-soi) which is fixed. It just is. It has no reason for it’s being. Then there is second being (le pour-soi) which is a being for itself. It is dependent upon the former being for it’s existance and has no fixed nature. Doesn’t this describe perfectly of our relationship to the great fireball in the sky? The massive (it represents 98% of the mass in our solar system) star is projected to stay “being” for another 5 million or some odd years, fortunate for us hapless human “beings”. Another example of existence (the fixed nature sun) preceding essence (the no fixed nature man).
Had some problems with the Cincopa slide galleries going down and I am changing them out with WordPress slides, Sorry for the technical problems, but all should be resolved by Monday. I guess the increased traffic as of late caused me to run out of Cincopa time allotments without paying them monthly for their services. That will just make Timberology leaner, greener, and meaner (hey it rhymed didn’t it?). Power to the people and WordPress…Check out the new First Flight Stair page Radius Ceilings. Some of the best unfinished, rough framing work we do.
