Love is Metaphysical Gravity

 I first heard of Buckminster Fuller from his book Operation Manual for Spaceship Earth. After reading this classic I was enthralled to know more about the author. Today, in search of inspiration, I researched quotes of his and one in particular caught my attention:

“Love is Metaphysical Gravity.” -Buckminster fuller

Why did this quote strike me with such inspiration? It inspired me enough to dedicate a sketch to it (I need serious work on writing words ^_^). The reason why this quote influences me is because it paints the meaning of love as a force that inundates us and persists as a critical element of every part of our life.

As far as we know, gravity is one of the four fundamental forces and pulls all matter together. Calling love ‘metaphysical’ gravity is precise in the sense that love pulls us all together. Whether love is found in a relationship or in a particular interest we are bound by the emotion that love seems to generate within us.

Love can be thought of as a universal principle that binds us to one another in the metaphysical sense of our emotions.  There is no escaping it.

Oh and one more thing – I will always love all of you. Each and every one of you human beings. The love I have for humanity is my highest motivation. Maybe that’s why this quote means so much to me.

Can Entropy Be Reversed?

issacToday, I was fortunate enough to come across Issac Asimov’s self proclaimed favorite story: The Last Question.

This is by far my favorite story of all those I have written.

After all, I undertook to tell several trillion years of human history in the space of a short story and I leave it to you as to how well I succeeded. I also undertook another task, but I won’t tell you what that was lest l spoil the story for you.

Now let me tell you what makes this statement quite amazing. Issac Asimov is the author of over 500 books and an estimated 90,000 letters and postcards. [*] He is one of the most prolific science fiction writers to date.

I will provide the original text here as well as the audio book format for your convenience. I suggest that you take the time to read it line by line, not giving in to curiosity and skipping to the end. The story continues to gain momentum the further you read into it and comes to a sensational close.
