This photo comes from the h2g2 Post's collection of submissions to Create's November project. We'll be posting a photo a day for the month of November.
Asteroid Lil made this. It looks like a photo, but it isn't. It's CGI. She performed this miracle with a program called Blender. It's awesome. There's Space for you. It's a photo of a place in the mind.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) was a rather pretentious American poet. Emerson was a friend of Henry David Thoreau's. Emerson thought he, Emerson, was the sane one of the pair, though there wasn't a dime's worth of difference between them, in my opinion. He wrote these lines:
I like a church; I like a cowl;
I love a prophet of the soul;
And on my heart monastic aisles
Fall like sweet strains, or pensive smiles
Yet not for all his faith can see
Would I that cowlèd churchman be.
Just thought you might enjoy that, while you look at Asteroid Lil's great picture.
