Find Waypoints

A waypoint is a point of reference that can be used for location and navigation.  It can be a specific latitude and longitude of a location, or a well-known landmark.  Ultimately, integration between Art and Science, Intention and Flow is all a matter of Waypoints, like a sailor on the sea moving from one buoy marker to another, one point on the horizon to another, one point on the ship’s ‘radar’ to another, until you get to a desired end.  Traveling between Waypoints consists of flow, direction, and intention — and none is exclusive. The path crosses guiding markers with no course set in stone

Hold Synergy of Intention and Flow, Art and Science as Brother and Sister

At best, brothers and sisters support each other’s development. The same can be true while integrating Art and Science. Science can help Art advance with new technology, tools, paints, ways of photographing at the macro scale and micro scale, inspirational images and scientific findings that generate art. Even the practical assistance of listening to music can help science advance. Music, movies, concept art, drawing and paintings, can all inspire the search for knowledge and to further exploration of a subject. The two can inspire one another to push boundaries and pursue new endeavors. Listening to music during that creative process seems to be able to play a supportive role in a lot of different creative processes. When science or art can’t answer questions, they can look to the other for answers. An interesting benefit of the mutual relationship is that if the Science can’t conclude a satisfying answer, art has the power to provide something fulfilling. Much the same, if something needs a type of clarification that art can’t provide, science often provides something satisfying.
