chiseled form displays mother’s~

*Note: The word Pietà finds its origins in the Italian word for “pity” and the Latin word for “piety”, giving it a sense of “compassion” and “devotion” altogether. Apparent from the depiction of Mary and her dead son in her lap, the compassion of the mother towards her dead son is quite obvious. My musical choice is I love Air by Bach & Pietà by Michelangelo. The video shows detailed features of the sculpture and its humanistic elements.

Chakra (cakra in Sanskrit) means “wheel” and refers to energy points in your body. They are thought to be spinning disks of energy that should stay “open” and aligned, as they correspond to bundles of nerves, major organs, and areas of our energetic body that affect our emotional and physical well-being.

The Deadly Knot *

There were many different

knots to choose from,

much easier choices that

could have been made.

This particular one’s

structural make up so

complex to explain,

without a microbiology

degree. A twisted three stem

pseudoknot part of CoV19 RNA.

A worldwide microbe

SARS-CoV (the coronavirus responsible for SARS) and SARS-CoV-2 possess a unique RNA structure, a three-stemmed pseudoknot, that stimulates -1 PRF. Recent experiments identified that small molecules can be introduced as antiviral agents to bind with the pseudoknot and disrupt its stimulation of -1 PRF.Sep 15, 2020
