Michael Jackson - Planet Earth

ah-mazing-nature:

(by Michael Jackson) 

Planet Earth, my home, my place

A capricious anomaly in the sea of space

Planet Earth, are you just

Floating by, a cloud of dust

A minor globe, about to bust

A piece of metal bound to rust

A speck of matter in a mindless void

A lonely spaceship, a large asteroid

Cold as a rock without a hue

Held together with a bit of glue

Something tells me this isn’t true

You are my sweetheart, soft and blue

Do you care, have you a part

In the deepest emotions of my own heart

Tender with breezes, caressing and whole 

Alive with music, haunting my soul.

In my veins I’ve felt the mystery

Of corridors of time, books of history 

Life songs of ages throbbing in my blood 

Have danced the rhythm of the tide and flood 

Your misty clouds, your electric storm

Were turbulent tempests in my own form

I’ve licked the salt, the bitter, the sweet

Of every encounter, of passion, of heat 

Your riotous color, your fragrance, your taste 

Have thrilled my senses beyond all haste

In your beauty I’ve known the how 

Of timeless bliss, this moment of now.

Planet Earth, are you just 

Floating by, a cloud of dust 

A minor globe, about to bust 

A piece of metal bound to rust 

A speck of matter in a mindless void 

A lonely spaceship, a large asteroid

Cold as a rock without a hue 

Held together with a bit of glue 

Something tells me this isn’t true 

You are my sweetheart, soft and blue

Do you care, have you a part 

In the deepest emotions of my own heart 

Tender with breezes, caressing and whole 

Alive with music, haunting my soul.

Planet Earth, gentle and blue

With all my heart, I love you.

(by Michael Jackson)

This miniature ecosystem has been thriving in an almost completely isolated state for more than forty years. It has been watered just once in that time.The original single spiderwort plant has grown and multiplied, putting out seedlings. As it has access to light, it continues to photosynthesize. The water builds up on the inside of the bottle and then rains back down on the plants in a miniature version of the water cycle.
As leaves die, they fall off and rot at the bottom producing the carbon dioxide and nutrients required for more plants to grow.

if you don’t think this is fucking rad then get out of my face

This dude has a sick skill!!

_______

This rock balancing is done by Michael Grab. He is an artist and has killer patience. On his site gravityglue.com, Grab explains:

“The most fundamental element of balancing in a physical sense is finding some kind of ‘tripod’ for the rock to stand on. Every rock is covered in a variety of tiny to large indentations that can act as a tripod for the rock to stand upright, or in most orientations you can think of with other rocks. By paying close attention to the feeling of the rocks, you will start to feel even the smallest clicks as the notches of the rocks in contact are moving over one another. Parallel to the physical element of finding tripods, the most fundamental non-physical element is harder to explain through words. In a nutshell, I am referring to meditation, or finding a zero point or silence within yourself. Some balances can apply significant pressure on your mind and your patience. The challenge is overcoming any doubt that may arise.” Pretty sick, amiright?
