Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen #FreddieMercury

Una de las mejores canciones de la historia.

Dónde estarás, dónde estaremos desde hoy, dos puntos en un universo inexplicable, cerca o lejos, dos puntos que crean una línea, dos puntos que se alejan y se acercan arbitrariamente.

❝ The idea of a complete life, meaningful within itself, must probably be abandoned with the conception of the epic death—for catastrophes always have the power to draw into themselves remote realities and events from the distant past. If mortally weary people take an affirmative view of death, it is most likely the case that death relieves them of a burden. The reason for the allegedly positive relationship to death taught by these metaphysics is none other than the one which comes forcibly to mind today, and which I already mentioned: that the life in question amounted to so little that there was little resistance to its ending. ❞

Theodor W. Adorno, lecture on 27 July 1965 (via anthropologeist)

Adorno on the epic death, a motif frequently relished, empty heroism, dying on screen, bloody and catastrophic.

Star Formation within the Eagle Nebula - M16
This star-forming region is famous for its space pillars that appear in this infrared view from NASA’s Spitzer space telescope. The green dust is the cooler dust and the red dust represents hotter dust that was warmed by the explosion of a massive star 8,000 to 9,000 years ago. Astronomers estimate that the explosions blast wave spread outward and destroyed the eagle nebula’s three famous pillars about 6,000 years about. Since the light from the nebula takes about 7,000 years to reach us we will not witness this destruction for about another 1,000 years.
