By the handcrafted and the handmade, regardless of content, we are drawn to the love and to the work, we can feel it. We’ve tested it- the strengths of subjects who are looking at original art pieces versus reproductions. The subjects have no idea whether what they’re looking at is a reproduction or an original, and every time their looking at an original their strength is higher.
Makes me think we should surround ourselves with strength, with things built on work and love, with Art and high-frequency things.
Look at the suburbs versus the slums. The rodeo drives versus the drives you don’t go down. An architecturally ugly neighborhood becomes part of a feedback loop of blight and violence; the sleazy, dehumanized housing projects of urban ghettos manifest weak power patterns and a matrix of squalor and crime. * Although it must be remembered that depending on which vibrational pattern and frequency one aligns with, the destitution of a ghetto can be an excuse for depravity were the inspiration to rise above it.
It is not the facts of one’s environment, but one’s attitude toward them that determines whether they will be the occasion for defeat or the inspiration to victory.
