Now Besso has departed from this strange world a little ahead of me. That means nothing. People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.

-Albert Einstein

Eulogy for Michele Angelo Besso

(b) 25 May 1873  

(d) 15 March 1955   ז״ל


Time to listen:

 
 

Remnant of an extinct star.

7,000 light years from Earth.

Died ~1,000 CE.

 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 


 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

Pillars stand.

 
 
 

Sweet the hand.

 
 
 

Ochre reach.

 
 
 

Stars unleashed.

 
 
 

Rust fills pan.

 
 
 

Exigent.  Grand.

 
 
 

Mold fools eye.

 
 
 

Stars inside.

 
 
 

Now here’s a gas:

 
 

Car theft glass.

 
 
 

Novice lights.

 
 
 

Chapel heights.

 
 
 

Galaxies greet.

 
 
 

The eye retreats.

 
 
 

Strands persist.

 
 
 

What more than this?
