Color Theory and the I Ching
Date: 5/25/2019 1:00:00 PM
Topic of Study: Natural Science
Presenter: Dennis Garza
Synopsis: The I Ching Ba Gua can be symbolically interpreted in many different ways. One such symbolic representation, the family designations, is so closely related to color theory that when observed more intimately it begins to unveil a possible formula that could help revolutionize how we see personal relationships altogether. Let’s take a deeper look.

Does photography offer a true representation of reality?
Date: 9/28/2019 1:15:00 PM
Topic of Study: Art
Presenter: Jill Alessandra-Garza
Synopsis: Photographs can represent a moment in time as far back as the origins of the art itself or as recent as the second that has just passed. They can show the progression of time in an individual life, in a family, in a society. They can capture the beauty of a curious and singular look at the sometimes tragic, sometimes mundane and sometimes joyous adventure that is life. But are they real? Let us journey through this artform to explore the philosophical questions it poses, questions of the nature of time and space, and the continuum of reality.

"A human being is a part of a whole, called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest ... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
