Interzone / Biodegradable plastics: fail
« on: January 29, 2011, 11:25:47 PM »
Most of the "biodegradable" plastics don't really degrade, only break down more easily to monomers and actually pollute the enviorment more. The only kind of plastic which really is biodegradable is plastic made of plant oils, such as hemp oil. Biodegradability is a marketing sham more than anything else.

Interzone / Cearting something eternal
« on: December 30, 2009, 12:54:21 AM »
As we all know and have experienced, some artistic creations, from symphonies to statues, have an air of immortality about them, something that tells you "This will be rememberred and influence minds and values for thousends of years."
While reading the Bhagavadgita I became aqquainted with the vedic concept of being and eternalism. Referring to the Atman Krishna said: "It is never born, nor does it ever die. Nor, having once existed, will it cease to do so. It is unborn, eternal, immutable and primeval." This law also applies to truths about the cosmos such as death and entropy, and to social truths like lonliness, the existence of lies and power struggles.
What I wonder about is whether to creat someting eternal, one needs to wholly experience The Eternal in some form and then have the means to express it artistically. Is this experience neccessary? How can such "eternal knowledge" could be achieved? It would be interesting if you shared some of your experiences of this nature (if you've had any), and off course, specify some metal pieces that express such truths

And to think we all had bad things to say of Nirvana


your thoughts?

"Now that the trend sheep have wandered away or been led to whatever popular style MTV or "alternative" radio stations are pushing today, there is finally an opening of space in which to objectively evaluate Cobain and Generation X, both of which have passed into fatality. Though many members of Generation X treated Cobain as an icon, the link between the two was far from reciprocal because most who claimed Cobain as an inspiration fundamentally misunderstood him and his message."
