Just happened."

The previous post, on the July 13 death of computer scientist Robert Fano,
suggests a review of "Deathly Hallows" posts in this journal. From that review —

"Robert Fano, an electrical engineer who was instrumental
in creating a world of instantly responsive computers, died
on July 13 in Naples, Fla. He was 98."

Luminosity

"At CERN the LHC has reached design luminosity,
and is breaking records with a fast pace of new
collisions. This may have something to do with the
report that the LHC is also about to tear open
a portal to another dimension
."

Art Wars

Wil S. Hylton today in the online New York Times

"It seems to me now, with greater reflection,
that the value of experiencing another person’s art
is not merely the work itself, but the opportunity
it presents to connect with the interior impulse of another.
The arts occupy a vanishing space in modern life:
They offer one of the last lingering places to seek out
empathy for its own sake, and to the extent that
an artist’s work is frustrating or difficult or awful,
you could say this allows greater opportunity to try to
meet it. I am not saying there is no room for discriminating 
taste and judgment, just that there is also, I think,
this other portal through which to experience creative work
and to access a different kind of beauty, which might be
called communion."

Or damnation.
