More Oregon Land Art

+Skye Witherspoon found some pretty cool stuff on Google Earth. It's the remains of the third major land art project that I worked on with my father. This one was really cool. It was a three dimensional installation made with poles of varying heights. Between some of these poles, thin wires were strung and would sing in the wind.

Years ago, the poles started to fall down. The owner of the land then came by and each of these posts were cut down at ground level (now used fence posts), removing all traces of the design. Since then, water and blowing dust have exposed the design once again. File this as another cool thing that you can find on +Google Earth. In the photo below, you can see that there is a strange discoloration of the earth in center of the dry lake.

Zooming in further to this location shows the remains of the design which is resemblant of a sand dollar. Check it out on Google Earth (42.601442,-118.44053).

Oregon Land Art (Sri Yantra)

So, when I was a kid, I had the chance to do some pretty cool stuff that I think helped to inspire me as a traveler. For example, when I was 12, I camped out in the Oregon desert for a couple of weeks while helping my dad and some of his friends build a 1/4 mile design on the floor of a dry lakebed. It was really hard work because we didn't user any machines or special surveying equipment. We spent our serving as human power for the plow (used to make the lines) and lining up flags so that they'd be straight lines. It's a terrible photo, but I'm second from the left.


In the end, though, I'm pretty sure the effort was well worth the time invested. Viewed from the ground, you can see that this was no small feat - we had to draw some pretty big lines!

Desert Sri Yantra 1990: Northern outer gate looking east before completion of gates

From the air, you can see the design fully. It's a Sri Yantra which originated in India and is very beautiful. It was really accurate too because small errors are smoothed out as a result of the large scale involved, possibly making it the most precise version ever to exist.

Desert Sri Yantra from 9000 Feet

We kept the project anonymous and left no traces of us having been there. About 40 days, the Air Force based in Boise, Idaho discovered the design and it became a big mystery - folks on CNN thought it was aliens or special military antennas. The chatter died down pretty quickly though as my father and the rest of the team took credit. That said, there are still folks out there that think it was a big cover up job. One of my favorite quotes is, "why would well dressed men from another state come here and do something like this." As if the way you dress implies something about your sense of adventure...

I know differently. While the design is no longer there it serves as a reminder to me that getting out and doing far out stuff can be a lot of fun and really rewarding as well.

Why We Shout In Anger: A Hindu Parable.

An Acharya and his disciples were visiting the Ganges River, where they found a group of family members on the banks shouting in anger at each other. Turning to his disciples, the aharya smiled and asked, 'why do people in anger shout at each other?’

His disciples thought for a while. One of them finally said, ‘Because when we lose our calm, we shout.’

'But, why should you shout when the other person is just next to you?' countered the aharya. 'You can just as well tell him what you have to say in a soft manner.' His disciples thought about it some more, but could not come up with a satisfactory answer. Finally, the aharya explained,

'When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other, in order to cover that great distance.

Nevertheless, what happens when two people fall in love? They do not shout at each other but instead talk very softly because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is either nonexistent or very small. In addition, when they love each other even more, what happens? They do not speak; only whisper and they get even closer to each other in their love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only need to look at each other and that’s all. That is how close two people are when they love each other.

So when you argue, do not let your hearts get distant, do not say words that distance each other more, or else there will come a day when the distance is so great that you will not find the path to return.’

15 Scientific Reasons Behind Popular Hindu Traditions


There is a scientific reason behind the ‘Namaskar’ in Hindu culture. Joining both hands ensures touching the tips of all the fingers together, which are linked to pressure points in the eyes, ears, and mind. Pressing them together is said to activate these, helping us remember that person for a long time.

Toe rings

Indian women normally wear toe rings on the second toe. A particular nerve from this connects the uterus and passes to heart. Thus, a toe ring on this toe strengthens the uterus, keeping it healthy by regulating the blood flow to it. Moreover, a woman’s menstrual cycle is said to be regularized.


The spot between the eyebrows on a forehead is considered a major nerve point in the human body. A tilak is believed to prevent the loss of energy, and retain this to control various levels of concentration. Moreover, the act of applying this ensures that the points on the mid-brow region and Adnya-chakra are pressed, facilitating blood supply to the facial muscles.


Mehndi is a very powerful medicinal herb, and its application on hands and feet can prevent stress during weddings. It cools the body and keeps the nerves from becoming tense.

Bells in temples

People ring the temple bell on entering as the sound of it is said to clear our mind and help us stay sharp, keeping our full concentration on devotion. Moreover, these bells are made in such a way that the sound they produce creates unity in the left and right parts of our brains. The duration of the bell echo is ideal to activate all the seven healing centres in our body, clearing us of negativity.

Throwing coins in a river

Historically, most currency was made of copper, a vital metal for the human body. Throwing coins in a river was a way to intake sufficient copper as part of water as rivers were the only source of drinking water.

Not sleeping with your head pointing north

The human body has its own magnetic field, while the Earth is a giant magnet. When you sleep with your head pointing north, your body’s magnetic field becomes asymmetrical to the Earth’s, causing problems related to blood pressure since your heart needs to work harder in order to overcome this.

Piercing ears

Indian physicians and philosophers believe that piercing ears helps in the development of intellect, power of thinking and decision making faculties. Get a piercing today!

Surya Namaskar

Hindus have a tradition of paying their respects to the Sun God early in the morning through the Surya Namaskar. Waking up to follow this routine ensures we are prone to a morning lifestyle.

The plait on the head of males

Sushruta described the master sensitive spot on the head as Adhipati Marma. This was considered a centre of wisdom. The knotted plait helps boost this centre and conserve its subtle energy.


Ayurveda sees the basic cause of many diseases as the accumulation of toxic materials in the digestive system. Regular cleansing of toxic materials keeps one healthy. By fasting, the digestive organs get rest and all body mechanisms are cleansed and corrected.

Charan Sparsh

When you touch the feet of the elderly, their hearts emit positive thoughts and energy, which they transmit through their hands and toes. In essence, the completed circuit enables flow of energy and increases cosmic energy, switching on a quick connect between two minds and hearts. Your fingers and palms become the ‘receptor’ of energy and the feet of the other person become the ‘giver’ of energy.


Sindoor is prepared by mixing turmeric, lime and the metal mercury. Due to its intrinsic properties, mercury controls blood pressure and activates sexual drive. Thus, sindoor should be applied right upto the pituitary gland where all our feelings are centered.

Idol worship

Hinduism propagates idol worship more than any other religion. This was initiated for the purpose of increasing concentration during prayers. According to psychiatrists, a man will shape his thoughts as per what he sees.

Wearing bangles

Bangles cause constant friction with the wrist which increases the blood circulation level. Further more, the electricity passing out through outer skin is again reverted to one’s own body because of the ring shaped bangles.

This New Invention Is Like Something Out Of A Sci-Fi Film. You Can Now Breathe Underwater

Scientist in Denmark have created a material that absorbs, stores and releases large amounts of oxygen.

Scientists created this material by manipulating the molecular structure of cobalt.

Just a few grains stores enough oxygen for a single human breath.

A bucket full of grains could hold an entire room full of oxygen.

Scientists are hoping to use this material for medical purposes.

This would allow patients who need oxygen in their day-to -day lives to get around without pulling a heavy oxygen tank.

Scuba divers may be able to use the material to absorb oxygen from water and go on longer expeditions.
