"We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing."
All forms of beauty, like all possible phenomena, contain an element of the eternal and an element of the transitory – of the absolute and of the particular. Absolute and eternal beauty does not exists or rather it is only an abstraction skimmed from the general surface of different beauties. The particular element in each manifestation comes from the emotions; and just as we have our particular emotions, so we have our own beauty.
“On the Heroism of Modern Life”
From Salon of the 1846
A desire for the Absolute is internal and internal of high scientists and high poets, whereas we started our quest for beauty going into the particulars – the particulars of science, the particulars of humanities and the particulars of technology. There were chances of poetry colliding with prose, of philosophy with arithmetic, the lyrics with music – but the concept of absolving these particulars is just like absolving the opposites of salt and sugar melted into water.
While Tagore and Einstein sat together to discuss poetry and science –more precisely the science of poetry and the poetry of science, the institute rehabilitated both quantum physics and the Mahabharata with the modern-most computational ‘cloud’ hovering in its atmospheric region. This ‘cloud’— a small quivering sail at the horizon carries the bundle of opposites and caused them to melt in a united whole—thus the beauty of chaos happily resides with the beauty of philosophy thus music helps the dissolution of heart-block.
Every institution and the DGRF too has a past history penetrating to the point of pain. But every pain initiates a man of meaning to concentrate on the intensity to variables—without quibbles, without, syllogism, without immediate deductions. The input of pain in a nonlinear scientist, the founder of this institution, unlike the monotonous melody of negatives in a common man gave way to an proportional output of the beautiful activities—sometimes chaotic. The chaos heightened when the scientist met his friends and initiates. Energy within voluptuousness creates an uneasiness and a positive suffering.
This positive suffering lent the scientist, his friend and the initiates to engage in the study of the beautifulness. The initiates of DGRF, avowed to the study of the beautiful, have centainly the desire of the moth for the star’, or perhaps the night for the morrow’—
The devotion to something afar
Form the sphere of own sorrow.
