Scientists have discovered evidence of an extremely powerful earthquake (9.5 magnitude) 3800 years ago in Chile. The resulting tsunami struck places as far away as New Zealand, and carried boulders the size of cars almost a kilometre inland 🔗 Link

Birds in the tropics are the most colourful in the world, due to having greater competition, a better diet, and having denser foliage with which to hide from predators. A study published in Nature Ecology & Evolution has confirmed this long-held theory originally posited by Charles Darwin. 🔗 Link

If this tapir looks like a prehistoric beast, that’s because it sort of is. The four species that remain today are found in South America, Central America, and Southeast Asia. But the earliest versions of today’s tapirs appeared in the early Eocene of North America. It’s from there they spread to other continents over millennia.

When I paint a sun, I want to make people feel it revolving at a terrific rate of speed. Giving off light and heat waves of tremendous power. When I paint a cornfield, I want people to feel the atoms within the corn pushing out to their final growth and bursting.

When I paint an apple, I want people to feel the juice of the apple pushing out against the skin, the seeds at the core striving outward to their own fruition! The fields that push up the corn, and the water that rushes down the ravine, the juice of the grape, and the life of a man as it flows past him, are all one and the same thing.

The sole unity in life is the unity of rhythm. A rhythm to which we all dance ; men, apples, ravines, ploughed fields, carts among the corn, houses, horses and the sun…. When you begin to feel the universal rhythm in which everything on earth moves, you begin to understand life. That alone is God.
