scientist....(for IF perennial)

“A good scientist is a person in whom the childhood quality of perennial curiosity lingers on. Once he gets an answer, he has other questions.”
 Frederick Seitz


  1. I'll tell you an intimacy.
    many years ago, I published humor in a newspaper, a newspaper in Buenos Aires which was edited every day, you know, and every day I had to do a cartoon, then I got up early, and began to think, was there when the drama began, until came the idea in my head and I drew, and when the drawing was finished, in that second, I felt a split second of pleasure, nothing else, for there, restart drama.
    I'm not a scientist, or much less, but probably something similar happens to them . anxiety about the discovery will not allow you to enjoy the discovery, because you know then restart the drama.
    But that is what makes the wheel turn, right?
    I am convinced that everything starts anew in each second of our lives. now!

  2. Well, now there's another comment, I write my own (I hate being the first)
    Looking at this picture, I feel like I'm watching some intimate affair. the separate area, seem to me to form a whole human condition,
    in which we are allowed to see certain things, and sometimes not.

    OH, NO, I did a psychological analysis! I hate this kind of comments! I'm so sorry!!!!
    I should just say: I like.

  3. @ mi nombre es roberto : Well, firstly there is certain a parallel between an artist and the scientist: both of them have to be creative and in the beginning of their work ( piece of art of scientific paper) they have to put the right questions. Sometimes it is the most difficult.
    And anxiety.... you are perhaps right .... they have to deal with it because the path they follow can lead to nothing...and it happens. The point is to become not disillusioned.
    And secondly ....thanks for your comment.
    Good scientist - when he gets an answer, he has other questions. But if he stays asking same or similar question again and again he makes no progress. The same as an artist. Some of them stay producing "save" paintings , because they are afraid of the fall from pedestal of security.
    Well, it is enough for today, I guess I am going to count sheep......1,2,3,4..........grrrr, grrr

  4. It really is very creative, you never repeat the same number!

  5. @ mi nombre es roberto : oh yes, I forgot to tell you I like this quote of Mr. Seitz. He mentioned children - they put questions without anxiety, without fear being swept away from the pedestal of security.... because they don't care about such things , yet.....

  6. @ mi nombre es roberto : ha, ha, ha, (my name is artisjokken)

  7. I love the way different images/associations/emotions emerge depending on where I focus in this piece. It fits beautifully with the idea of restless scientific exploration.

  8. here is for this post:


  9. Feels like your piece is a bundle of questions, everywhere the eye settles, a new question, and another, and another - very satisfying.

  10. oh I was here the other day and I was reminded of an aerial landscape, isn't that strange, enjoying the way you mix the persepective, and the imagery and I must read that quote. I like to watch, as Chauncy Gardner once said!
