Why Art?

Written by Joseph Devon


Continued from page 1

Once a division ofrepparttar Japenese army was engaged in a sham battle, and some ofrepparttar 129332 officers found it necessary to make their headquarters in Gasanís temple. Gasan told his cook: ďLetrepparttar 129333 officers have onlyrepparttar 129334 same simple fare we eat.Ē This maderepparttar 129335 army men angry, as they were used to very differential treatment. One came to Gasan and said: ďWho do you think we are? We are soldiers, sacrificing our lives for out country. Why donít you treat us accordingly?Ē Gasan answered sternly: ďWho d you think we are? We are soldiers of humanity, aiming to save all sentient beings.Ē

I donít have quiterepparttar 129336 guile that this simple monk had. I have too much respect for indoor plumbing. I donít have quiterepparttar 129337 guile, but I wish I did because that monk was standing up for me right there. Inrepparttar 129338 battle of tangible verse transcendent, he found both fields to be perfectly equal and necessary. I think I know why. Art is communication. After all, what is speech but highly stylized singing? Sounds and inflections honed to an exact degree making communication possible. Itís all just noise, itísrepparttar 129339 composition that gives it meaning. And where does writing stem from if not painting? Think about that next time youíre writing freehand. Pay attention to you pen as it moves acrossrepparttar 129340 page, what are you doing, how are you expressing thoughts? You are painting, painting stokes and lines which encode our language into a readable form. Writing, all writing, scientific or poetic, is painting. Itís all art. And what isrepparttar 129341 fundamental form of engineering,repparttar 129342 arch, if not sculpture? Where would modern medicine be without photography? What is geometry if not painting? Math more ofrepparttar 129343 same? As it turns out, I donít even believe art and science to be as opposed as they first appear. I believe theyírerepparttar 129344 same process at work in two different types of minds. The equations and theories that are taken for granted by science today came from somewhere, and I donít think that Newton watchingrepparttar 129345 apple, Archmedes in his tub, Einstien ponderingrepparttar 129346 atom, I donít think that any of these moments are any different fromrepparttar 129347 clarity I seek when pondering a plot point. I believe thatrepparttar 129348 world of science came to be while someone ponderedrepparttar 129349 universe onrepparttar 129350 tangible level. Inspiration struck, and thenrepparttar 129351 insight contained within was captured to be communicated with others. Does that sound so different from what you do? It doesnít sound so different to me. But whilerepparttar 129352 greats of science have ponderedrepparttar 129353 tangible, I ponderrepparttar 129354 intangible. Math and science can have their neatly provable formulas and theories. There is no equivalent inrepparttar 129355 world Iíve chosen to enter because when Iím sitting in my tub pondering things, it is notrepparttar 129356 physical world Iím pondering. It is my world within,repparttar 129357 world of my heart and soul. My answers are just as real, but they canít be measured inrepparttar 129358 physical world. My answers are just as real, but there is no way to point to something concrete when dealing with matters ofrepparttar 129359 heart. But my answers are just as real, and they're just as important, I know this because of my father's question. The engineers can build their bridge, and Iím thankful for them doing it. It'srepparttar 129360 people walking across that I must look over. Forrepparttar 129361 man walking across who is walking without a clear idea why, forrepparttar 129362 woman who is terrified of what lies ahead, and even forrepparttar 129363 child whose dog has just died. Iíve got answers for you. And if I donít have them now, Iíll keep looking until I find them. Iíll get them to you just as soon as I find them. Iíll get them to you as soon as I can. Iíll get them to you just as long as I can continue to write.
