Hello Bruno and others,

All the best for the last year of this MillunniuM, or any other year, i
just liked to write that word, MillunniuM. Did you kow that here in
Holland we had a great project on New Year's Eve called Molennium: all
available wind mills were used, so it would be a Mill-enniumproject in

Right, i didn't follow this thread, but would like to add that even the
neurons in our head communicate by changing rhythms. Usually the working
is explained by telling that neurons "fire" a pulse that triggers the next
ones to fire or to inhibit. However, this model is too simple: in fact,
the patterns, the rhythms of firing are influenced. When triggered, a
neuron will "fire" more rapidly or less frequently. These local rhythms
are orchestrated into a few large patterns, amongst which one is the one
we're aware of: our conscious.

I would like to suggest that when we perceive a thing of beauty - in the
eye, ear, nose, mouth or skin of the beholder - our mind is in tune,
synchronized with, resonates with, responds to the picture, the song, the
smell, the taste or the pressure. Somehow the rhythms fit, snap, click and
we become aware of a feeling of solace, enlightment, tranquility. And then
the noise takes over again.

Kind regards,

Jan Lelie

With kind regards - met vriendelijke groeten,

Jan Lelie
