Ze Elements by Caneleb Ze Elements by Caneleb
I noticed that A Lot I mean A LOT of people liked the photoshop picture I did years ago of my concept of the elements. It may be my most faved picture and it still gets faves every now and then even though I made it years ago and I currently think it doesn't look very good. SO! Since my perception of the Elements has changed as with my skill in photoshop (( though I prefer CS4 to what I used to make this)) I decided to make a new picture.

This diagram is of the 4 elements which are base elements, 2 are opposite on temperatures and the other 2 with gravity. Hot, Cold, In the Sky, or on the Ground. These elements break into sub elements, the sub elements being the base element but different components of it as a whole. Aside from the basic 4 there is also Time, Space,Light and Dark. Light and Dark is not good and evil but rather physical manifestation of Life and Light, Shadow and Death. Space and Time encompass Earth,Air,Fire,Water,Light and Darkness and are elements of there own in a sense since the physical world fit's in space and ages with time.

The rest should be fairly obvious, Water is water, Ice is Ice and snow and things of the like and Cool is freezing temperatures and the lack of energy. Fire is fire, Magma is Lava or extremely heated materials that aren't gas and Heat is melting and boiling temperatures and the pressence of energy. Wood is all manner of plants the grow from trees to grass and flowers, Rock is all manner of mixed minerals from boulders and gems to sand and Metal is purified earth material such as Steel, Iron or Gold. Wind is general gusts torrents and flows of air or twisters tornados and hurricanes, Lightning is all natural non man made forms of electricity and Sky is flight or weightlessness, the ability to defy gravity while earth elements are bound to it.

Absolutely wonderful presentation. Your description of your presentation is amazing as well. It's quite apparent that you have truly expressed yourself in this awesome work.

Whatever your background, you have an amazing grasp of the mystical nature of our universe -- better than many who're considered "experts" in the occult and mysticism. Your work and insights are inspirational. Thank you for sharing both, and I hope you'll continue inspiring us with your wonders. ~Namaste

Nice job. Time/Space are basically the core of our world, Light/Dark are the two opposite but equal balances, and the four main elements are the core elements in the creation of our world. Nice

I LOVE IT SOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!!!! This is exactly how I vision the elements! With this picture of yours, you have proved my point when it comes to the fact that fire, water, earth, and air are not the only elements with a "universal" purpose. I DIG IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WELL DONE, MY FRIEND!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Plasma would be a subdivision of Lightning or Fire. Probably Lightning since plasma's fast moving particles and constant release of visible glowing energy is closer to a charge of electricity rather then a flame, that and if plasma occurs naturally, it would be out of a storm probably rather then a flame with sped up particles.

L O L...I did not know that the Space and the Time are elements!

Caneleb Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You could kinda of count them as order elements which is why they are outside of light and darkness and the basic 4. It's kind of hard to say that time or space itself is an element. However, if something exists, it has an period of time in which it exists and a space to exist in. So they are very basic, very fundamental elements which are both necessary in order to 'be'. The other 6 elements are pretty much encompassed by time and space so really if considered an element they would be existence elements. The non-physical glue that ties together the physical elements on a plane of reality.

Not to ruin your chart or anything but what about Sound? If Light is an element I would consider sound to be one too.

:iconcaneleb:
Caneleb Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
sound would be a further subdivision of wind since every sound really is ripple of energy that distorts the air, a sound wave. Much like how one could take the wood section of earth and start splitting it into sub groups of plants like flowers and trees or do the same with ice and how many different consistencies of it there are like snow or glacier like ice.

well sound is more than vibration of air. sound is the vibration any kind of particle at all whether it's gas, liquid, or solid. It's totally different than air.

Caneleb Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Right, a ripple of energy like I said, though you have a point a sound can be heard through more then just air, it can also be heard in water or through earth, liquids and solids though through such they are usually muffled and one hears best when the sound transfers form air to eardrum. Thinking on that principle, it would be better placed as a subdivision of space since the ripple of energy that is a sound wave could be considered a temporary displacement of particles and energy. Hah! What a productive discussion, thank you.
