I am an astrobiologist, sci-fi geek, and professor of everything groovy. I write about science, culture, math, history, space, and science fiction. Perhaps like you, I'm seeking a greater understanding of the nature of life and asking myself why all of this really matters. Come with me, and we'll ask some questions together.

Streaming Meditation: Red Blocks
This piece of art is called "Streaming Meditation". It was made by Blackheart6004 at DeviantArt. When I look at it I see a jumble of red block (the obvious) as well as the digitization of red blood cells flowing through the body and all primed with oxygen in their heme groups. I also see what could be the fallout from a giant red cube crashing into an immovable barrier, the cube being broken apart into many smaller fragments, each itself a red cube. Could there be a smallest cube in such a case, a single particle of "red cube"? What do you see?
