TIMES, TIME, AND HALF A TIME. A HISTORY OF THE NEW MILLENNIUM.

Comments on a cultural reality between past and future.

This blog describes Metatime in the Posthuman experience, drawn from Sir Isaac Newton's secret work on the future end of times, a tract in which he described Histories of Things to Come. His hidden papers on the occult were auctioned to two private buyers in 1936 at Sotheby's, but were not available for public research until the 1990s.

Statues in the Eyes of Ancients


I09 recently picked up on reports from Harvard University that German ultraviolet light scans of ancient Greek statues have revealed their true colours. 



Harvard: "The reconstructions are the result of more than two decades of painstaking research by a pair of married German archaeologists, Vinzenz Brinkmann and Ulrike Koch-Brinkmann. The exhibition was organized by the Stiftung Arch√§ologie and the Staatliche Antikensammlungen und Glyptothek of Munich, Germany, and has already been shown in a number of European cities. The Sackler is its first U.S. venue." 






More on this at Colour Lovers and The Smithsonian.  Photos from Stiftung Arch√§ologie.  A list of related projects is here and exhibitions here.  An article on the Brinkmanns and their work is here at Beyond Criticism.
