Birds. IMG 0006, with story


Badge Awards

Location  Cincinnati, Ohio
When I take electric wire pictures with birds, it always reminds me of R. Crumb drawings of inner city life, circa1960s.  He drew accurately in pen and ink.  While I took this in color, I reduced this to a high contrast black and white, in Crumb's style.

Click on the photo to enlarge.  I left the file big.

Transformers, inked style. L1040695, with story by harrietsfriend Another R. Crumb style photo. 

A feature cult movie was made of his life called Crumb. "A short history of America" is a good place to start, as his work with Zapp Comics.

For the first time ever I have noticed that it sort of reminds music notation.

I do not know why, but I like it/

this was passed up many times before I chose to post it, likely for the same reason.

Very cool. I like it a lot. I've been dying to find someone who might like to hear my theory regarding the nature of why the Birds musically align themselves upon the High Line Wires/Power Cables--not my theory, they just do it, and various people around the world have set their alignment to music/sound by envisioning it as a musical scale. My theory is regarding why they do this. Basically my theory is, this: The Birds are aligning themselves in this type of patternization which allows for easily converting their placement to sound on a musical scale due their MAGNETIC FIELD CONNECTION. I've been observing birds and insects for a number of years and I believe that a big part of the reason why Birds are choosing to sit upon the High Line Wires isn't just because they're communal. But rather because they are using the Power Cables to establish a higher level of Electromagnetic Field Connectivity; connecting to each other creating a kind of Electromagnetic Field Series/Circuit which increases their overall Electromagnetic Field/Charge. Why is this something which is desirable to the birds? Because they're using their increased levels of Electromagnetic Field Particle/Energy to ensure that they can stay aloft for longer periods of FLIGHT TIME. In other words, their higher charge level allows them to fly for longer periods.

yes, but you can see how this transforms into Astrology, the channeling of the vibrational elements of cosmic essence and the reaction to this source.

both valid theories.

It's all connected in this Universe. Do you know much about Numerical Value Systems? Like the Chaldean/Pythagorean Number Systems?

harrietsfriend's avatar

not yet, but I do know angles, tangents, and intuition.

SCDenton's avatar

Chaldean is a good one to learn. Use the system positively and it applies to a lot more in life than just typical birth sign/name related stuff. You can use it for almost anything. You can apply these Divine mathematical systems to practically everything.
