I was an observer of waves in water long before I knew waves were everywhere.
I observed waves long before I knew that light waves make things visible, or that sound waves make things audible, or even that solid things vibrate at a certain frequency.
In waves we observe how energy changes from one state to another and back again.
It would be possible to describe absolutely everything scientifically, but it would make no sense. It would be without meaning, as if you described a Beethoven symphony as a variation of wave pressure.
~ Albert Einstein
|Ansel Adams, Dunes Oceano, 1963|
There are waves one creates and waves one experiences, waves one can see and waves one can feel.
|Edward Weston, Dunes Oceano, 1936|
The first wave says, "You don't understand! We're all going to crash!When does a wave begin? When does it end? Are the terms beginning and end relevant in the context of waves?
All of us waves are going to be nothing! Isn't it terrible?"
The second wave says,
"No, you don't understand. You're not a wave, you're part of the ocean.

I am you; you are me. You are the waves; I am the ocean. Know this and be free, be divine.
~ Sri Sathya Sai Baba
