The world.

The center of the card shows the Nebra sky disk, a bronze disk with astronomic symbols on it from c. 1600 B.C. It contains sort of the first scientific theory in human history, answering the question how the sun manages to disappear behind the western horizon and show up again at the eastern horizon. The idea is that the sun is being put on a boat (depicted at the bottom of the disk) and carried around the outer edge of the world, that was still flat at the time.

The rest of the card was meant to be drawn in the tradition of alchemical symbolism. But that didn't work too well. It ended up as a riddle made from pictograms about various other scientific attempts to make sense of what we observe about the structure of the world as a whole, or, as David Deutsch has put it, the fabric of reality.

Cool stuff again, Ly. I also liked Marcias cards a lot. Is anybody else still here instead of doing facebook only?

Well, whatever, I made a simpler version of my world card. Perferences anybody, of those still looking at TCF?

I am ONLY here, but chose not to post my cards ahead of publication; I sent them to Sherry :cs

Given that some are here and some are there, I didn't see much point in posting them now, as they'll never be all together till they are printed :cl.

trzes - I like the simpler one better, myself. There are some bits on the other that I don't get, and that sort of clutters it for me. If that makes sense.

That does make sense. I also have a text version of the cards with some very brief hints to the meaning of the pictograms. Does that help?

I have more detailed explanations as well, that I am planning to put on a website. A link follows as soon as I managed to put it online.

I actually think that the simplified version simply looks nicer and cleaner, although it loses most of it's message.

Well, sure it's great to see the explanations - but I fear I would want to look at them every time I drew the card.

I do agree about the cluttered look though; it takes away from your rather fine image. How about selecting SOME of the pictograms, which would make it less cluttered but still remind people that science is what makes sense of nonsense ? I was glad to see the identification of Boltzmann, though - I was vaguely aware of him, but hadn't recognised his face !

Agreed, a little less icons might do the job with my image.

Some brief notes about the remaining icons to be added to the LWB bit
- Aristotle and the relativity of up end down: spherical earth
- Galilei and the relativity of positions in space: heliocentric model
- Eiinstein and the relativity of space and time: determinism, matter is energy
- Boltzmann and the relativity of the arrow of time: anthropic bias
- Everett and the relativity of destiny: many worlds

Here is anonther attempt:

MUCH better, I think. Less like the back of an envelope doodling in a cafe, as they say (not to be rude; just - you know how it is when we are FULL of ideas and want to get them ALL out there !) Now each one looks important enough to LOOK at.

You must have been looking straight into my heart :cl

The back of the envelope full of ideas has now got its own web page ( http://reality.spiorad.net/iconsummary.htm ) and the card stays clear. Image and LWB text will soon go to skad1.

trezs, I like them both, but agree the first has alittle tooo much on it. I think it's the sky disk I like seeing on a card.

Updated list on first post. There is a little over a month to go, and there are only 13 cards completed. The cards are not considered complete until the high resolution version is sent to me.

The Devil


The journey of Seven offered by the Devil’s travel agency

I’ll give you a wand promised Pan, use it to succumb to the seven deadly sins or to learn the seven liberal arts. Drink from my cup and you will sail the seven seas to see the seven wonders of the ancient world.  I’ll give you a sword to cut the seven pure notes from the seven colors of the rainbow, on seven continents collect the seven planetary metals, forge them into seven pentacles and use them to buy all of the world or use them to buy back your soul…

First card ready:

The Hierophant

This card is in memory of Chris Asselin. He used the image of a mother with her children for the Hierophant in the Patchwork Tarot. I have always found this a powerful image, as our mothers are the first and most important teachers in our lives. So I have adopted his original image and made it into a black&white drawing.
