Art/Science

28 May

There’s a phrase I heard a while back that really caught my attention… And I’m here at a hair salon, waiting for my wife (ah who am I kidding, you know me I’m here for hours every day – just can’t get enough), trying to remember what the phrase actually was.

It goes something like…

“Method is where science and art meet.”

Not exactly that… but something like it.
And ’cause (I detest the word “cuz”) I’ve got some time to kill, rather than look it up, I’m just gonna try and think it out (No! There is no try! Only do, or do not).

“Art and science meet in method.”

Hmm, that feels closer, not quite though.

What it’s referring to is fairly clear. The art of science vs. the science of art. Well, not so much “vs”… more the opposite of that.

It’s kind of showing how these two feilds at extreme opposite ends (theoretically) actually are very similar. Just a cool concept you don’t often think about (well, at least I don’t … At least, not until lately).

So, after giving up on my own mind to come up with the words, I’ve defaulted to the good ol’ inner-web to look up the actual phrase (something that turned out to be much more difficult than I expected … and 20 minutes later, here we are).

“Art and science have their meeting point at method.”
-Edward G. Bulwer-Tyller

Hmm… I could have sworn I remebered the quote sounding cooler than that, but, I guess not. Maybe it does still sound cool but my expectations were just too high. I was secretly hoping for something a lot more thought provoking and different from what I’d guessed at.

Anyways… that’s it for me for now. Jay’s just about finished up (and I’m done doing my obvious gawking at all the amazing kinds of shampoos andconditioners and gells and colours and sprays and other “product” … which in my opinion “hair stuff” is a plenty good enough term for).

So, until we meet again, have a better than average day!


Posted from an iPhone… I’ve done my best to ensure propper spelling, but I really can’t be sure… so apologies for any typos.
