"Celestial Ceiling has built a unique mythology over the years and has developed a loyal and diverse following. His debut record has become something of an underground classic, having made its debut on nighttime AM broadcast airwaves in Los Angeles and spun in Silverlake lounges. The record seems to appeal equally to the upturned nosed, handlebar mustached, self proclaimed hipsters as it does to soccer moms and librarians.
"It is no surprise that Celestial Ceiling's career began by creating soundtracks to Theater productions in the berkshires and then on to film scores in Los Angeles. The album's creator claimed to have made this record in a rapid fire session months after being visited by a supposed "legion of extra terrestrial, higher dimensional beings of light" -- as far fetched as that may sound. The sonic landscapes presented on this record certainly feel like dreamy, mystical expressions of some uncharted foreign planet or upper realms of the atmosphere. However, the music seems utterly void of any easy popular "space music" reference points, and has more in common with an impressionist painting, and yet feels refreshingly unique.
"Ultimately the album plays from start to finish as a true concept record, and seems to be so effortlessly humble in it's creation, the album has a certain purity and sweetness, it just seems to float over the listener, either receding into the background or washing over the subconscious as far as one invites it in, but the record feels different with each listen. A good listen for the gym, night driving, a sunday brunch, deep meditation, or for the soundtrack to a short film about the cosmos. 5 stars." -AMFMReview, Los Angeles
There is nothing random about the universe, I implore you to question the "scientists" who claim to have "proof" to what they preach. I for one am quite interested in the most breaking scientific discoveries. It was predicted when i was 5 years old that I would be working for NASA, but that was not the path I wished to take. My favorite subject of conversation would be the scientific mysteries of the universe, yet I am offended by the small minded scientists who are given the green light to propagate mass brainwashing to the public disguised as "education."
I recently watched the latest episode of "Cosmos" and was very surprised how much detail they feel they know about the creation of the universe. Not only did it all start with an explosion, but after that explosion, the universe was full of glowing gas, which at some point drew into itself and popped into stars. They believe that the leftover junk began to orbit these stars.
However, if the matter drew into itself to create stars, why would it continue to expand as they say? would it not continuously draw into it self? It seems that by this model, we would now be in a constant state of condensation, drawing further and further inward, no? Yet the Hubble telescope tells us that the universe is expanding. That is one part they got right: that the universe is expanding. But how can one extrapolate backwards to explain the origins of the universe by merely observing a slight movement of expansion?
Who's to say this is not a local event? Let's assume that it is a universal event, which I believe it would be. Why then must we assume that it began with an explosion. This is my biggest point of contention. Why an explosion? Everything we see on a micro level also takes place on a macro level. the microscopic world mirrors the world of the cosmos, yet, we never see explosive events on the microscopic level.
So then, if it wasn't the big bang, what was it? First of all, who says there needs to be a beginning? That is one thing I never understood, why couldn't the universe have always existed? Why would it all have originated from a single point? Couldn't there be multiple points?
Let's assume for a moment that the universe began from a single point of origin. Forget about explosions. Imagine something in nature that begins with a single point of origin and expands outwards. The answer lies at the root of biological life: The cell and hence, cell division.
I think we can be equally scientific as the supposed geniuses working in NASA JPL or those at the Hayden Planetarium who feel they can redefine the meaning of the word "planet" as to exclude Pluto from the list -- and we can now proclaim the new truth of... Universal Cell Division Theory.
Never mind using the word theory. I am far more comfortable with the notion of the universe originating through a process similar to cell division, and I am willing to be as bold as he scientific community and proclaim it as a fact. Now isn't that a more beautiful process?
Imagine if every sun in the galaxy, once split of from a sister sun and kept dividing. Did you know that most solar systems in the galaxy are binary systems? Most likely all of them are at least binary. It is highly likely that our own solar system is a binary system, with our solar twin very far out beyond the farthest planets. This might explain for many of the odd cycles in our solar system including the "wobble" of the earth - the precession of the equinoxes.
Then imagine if every sun spit out tiny planets, like giving birth. This will soon be the prevailing theory in decades to come. Each planet starts as terrestrial rocky planet, and over time it develops an atmosphere, it then begins to glow (Aurora Borealis, Northern/Southern Lights), the glow increases (Venus has been getting much brighter in recent years).
The planet gets brighter and brighter, while developing more and more of an atmosphere (Jupiter and Saturn). Did you know that Jupiter and Saturn both have rocky cores which are roughly the same size as the Earth, Mars and Venus? These planets develop and evolve and eventually graduate into stars themselves (Jupiter is in this graduation phase). Eventually, an entire solar system becomes a cluster of stars (The Pleiades). This is the process by which the universe evolves.
Look at nature, look at the night sky, it is beautiful, it is elegant, even the most destructive forces of nature have rhythm, order and beauty. It is the human mind that interprets "random" activity around us, I should say, the conditioned human mind. When in fact, all life hangs delicately in a beautifully orchestrated balance. Nothing is random, there is no coincidence. The Universe is a living organism, and it is intelligent.
