"Hitherto I had encountered only the brick wall of traditional views, but now I came up against the steel of people's prejudice and their utter incapacity to admit unconventional possibilities...

...I realized that one gets nowhere unless one talks to people about the things they know. The naive person does not appreciate what an insult it is to talk to one's fellows about anything that is unknown to them...I came to see that a new idea, or even just an unusual aspect of an old one, can be communicated only by facts." - Carl Jung.

A sketch I did tonight, playing with a new piece of software.

Hidden writing on the Shroud of Turin.

Like the image of the man himself the letters are in reverse and only make sense in negative photographs...

Dr Frale said that many of the letters were missing, with Jesus for example referred to as "(I)esou(s) Nnazarennos" and only the "iber" of "Tiberiou" surviving. Her reconstruction, however, suggested that the certificate read: "In the year 16 of the reign of the Emperor Tiberius Jesus the Nazarene, taken down in the early evening after having been condemned to death by a Roman judge because he was found guilty by a Hebrew authority, is hereby sent for burial with the obligation of being consigned to his family only after one full year". It ends "signed by" but the signature has not survived.

From Times Online.

A new crescendo of meaninglessness.

"So what if Sarah Palin didn't write this book? Even God used early scribes to write the Bible." -Moe Lang, commenter.
