The Face of Changes: Ilia Kramarik ~ A Child Prodigy

Meet ILIA:
Considered by experts as the youngest philosopher in the world, Ilia has dictated over two thousand philosophical aphorisms and poems comprising ten books being released in 2011.


The series are a complete spiritual progression in the album of quest for truth: on one end—questioning purposeful existence all the way to another end where life is seen as a unified breathing, feeling and thinking organism whose God is eternal, and we as individual co-creators belonging to one big whole God of reality and illusions.


For Ilia, experiencing God is experiencing all of existence and all of its infinite possibilities.

According to him, God is inseparable from each and every creation, be it a pebble, a child, a mineral or dimension.


He sees beings able to experience lives and their outcomes simultaneously and that each action creates a domino affect into infinity, producing infinite other possible actions and
reactions in different quantum realities.


In other words, no matter what we do, we, as spiritual beings, always have a chance to change everything, by ‘editing’ time and living multiple experiences, yet at all times retaining our own unique personality within what Ilia calls a Divine Matrix.


In his perspective, it is only through participating in all life that we can truly understand God and ourselves.


About ILIA
He does not read or write.
He does not go to school.
He does not listen to any stories from books or storytelling.
He does not play sports.
He does not play video games or use computer.

He does not watch television.
He does not play with toys or in playgrounds.

He has poor memory.
He battles health issues.
He is timid, willful, spirited and sensitive.
He understands humor and wit, and is very socially engaging with teenagers and adults, but not his peers.


He is bilingual, and has an accent in both Lithuanian and English languages. He is usually not articulate and sometimes stutters, but in sporadic moments in front of people displays amazing oratory abilities.


Usually Ilia’s reasoning is age appropriate, but during special inspirationional times, his creative IQ noticeably escalates, and he spontaneously creates with any theme that is suggested to him. Ilia sometimes cannot explain his creations, but, on occasion, can be very detailed and comprehensive in his oral commentaries.


Apart from art and philosophy Ilia loves playing with his four siblings, cooking, sewing, baking, hiking in the forest with his dog, comedic acting and directing.

About Prodigies

Children are recognized as prodigies if they are able to master the skill of accomplished adults before the age of ten.

Most prodigies are discovered in math, chess, music, science, medicine, athletics, acting, directing, dance, entrepreneurship, memory displays, humanitarian fields, etc., however, experts on prodigies and geniuses know that the rarest kind is a child prodigy in philosophy, wisdom, insight or philosophical poetry followed by realistic art. Even among the adult professionals this field is reserved for very few.

As Aristotle once observed in his Athenian academy more than 2,000 years ago: “There may be child-prodigy mathematicians, but there are no young philosophers.” In fact, the youngest philosophers in the recorded history have never been children, only young adults.

According to Dr. David R. Hawkins, MD, one of the problems in attempting to understand genius is that it takes near-genius to recognize it. This preposition closely resembles one of Ilia’s aphorisms, "Only when you are profound yourself do you find love profound. "

Dr. Hawkins also believes that because geniuses are in touch with an endless source of supply, they experience only a minimum of want—for there is no need to “get” when you already “have”.

This explains the frequent reluctance of child geniuses to share their ideas or talents. It is like living in the forest cabin and showing no anticipation to take a walk in the woods as you can do it any time.

Geniuses are not in a hurry to display all they are able to do, because their ‘backyard’ is full of miracles that they see on a daily basis. It is those who are unfamiliar with such abundantly rich backyards or forests who want to grab and grasp as much as they can at one sitting or outing.

Some of the factors shaping Ilia’s talents definitely could be genetic. Amongst the closest family and relatives of Jewish, Lithuanian, Latvian, Chinese, Hungarian, French, Swedish and Danish heritage there are renown writers, poets, teachers, generals, culinary arts experts, entrepreneurs, an award-winning film/theater director, a national cross-word champion, architectural engineer, pathologist, and a few prodigies in music and sports.

Ilia’s older siblings are also very gifted or prodigies. Most of them fluently speak three to four languages.

The oldest brother, began talking at three months and at thirteen, having entered college fully operated the family art business.

The second oldest brother was the main family chef from the age of eight, and Akiane, the only sister, has been on over fifty international television shows and documentaries for her realistic art and poetry since the age of eight. www.artakiane.com

Almost all children physically developed very early by crawling around three months and walking independently around eight months. Even though all five of them have been born underwater at home, most water babies in other families do not have such accelerated growth.

Another possible factor cultivating Ilia’s gifts was a naturally stimulating environment where most of his ideas were unconditionally encouraged and accepted. An enormous advantage of unstructured life-schooling type of learning provided him much needed free time for observation and finding his own perspective on existence. Without any external pressure to succeed, to achieve, and to perform according to specific standards, he developed his own distinctive opinions on life and intuitive reflections on the undiscovered reserves of the unknown.

Yet another possibility could be that many more children with their purity, innocence and acceptance would be able to feel and see what is beyond our human senses and create insightfully if adults had more time, energy and desire to listen to them.

Top 10 Composers: A Young Reader Responds
By ANTHONY TOMMASINI

My two-week project to select the 10 greatest composers, which involved a series of articles, blog posts and videos, concluded with an article in the Arts & Leisure section on Jan. 23. But I continue to receive lively, interesting reactions from readers. My favorite was a hand-written letter from Lucas Amory, who is 8 years old and lives on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Lucas is a serious piano student and the son of two noted violists, Misha Amory of the Brentano String Quartet and Hsin-Yun Huang.

Lucas attends the Special Music School at the Kaufmann Center (in his letter he says that he goes to the Lucy Moses School, which occupies the same building). He writes that he adores music and offers two lists: “THE TEN GREATEST COMPOSERS AND: THE ONES I LIKE BEST.” He clearly understands the difference between all-time greats and personal favorites — quite impressive for an 8-year-old.

To remind you, my list of greats, in order, was: Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert, Debussy, Stravinsky, Brahms, Verdi, Wagner and Bartok. Lucas has a passion for the Romantics so Tchaikovsky, Chopin and Schumann appear on both his lists. On his favorites list there is a photo-finish contest for the top spot between Schumann and Tchaikovsky, which Lucas illustrates with a drawing.


Here is Lucas’s wonderful, strong and articulate letter.

A Featured Artiste': Bonnie Hudgins






"But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls."

How Do I Start to Create With My Heart? by Margo Renay

A Heart Consciousness Note to all New Energy Humans~
This is a simple simple starting point to ignite your inner soul creativity. And every single moment can contain a creative element IF we begin to view with Fresh Soul Eyes. We often begin to create in awareness at the mind's gate. We often feel the story begins there.


In fact, when you are sensing this 'creative avenue' at the minds gate, it is usually in the middle of the story or the stage play or the creative experience. And if you have ever participated in a stage play or even some type of creative production, you and your fellow creators may rehearse or produce it out of linear order. Like dreams. The human experience is not linear by nature. The greater Soul Consciousness isn't either.


Now our mind attempts to organize your experience. Like a film editor that gathers all of the frames and organizes the visual story. An important role? Of course. Yet your experience is all of the frames on the cutting room floor. They are just potentials not chosen at the moment. Be patient with the arrival of all of the unexpected elements. Or the perfect star. ~Margo Renay Sullivan~
*****




So How Do I start?
How do I allow my Human Self to Create with my Soul Self? How do I even begin  creating from my Inspired Heart. A Truth? Here is a key I remembered:


I start with my Heart Experiences, Combined with Wisdom AND Intuition FIRST.Then IMAGINATION. A WHOLE FEELING.A visual sound and picture arrive next.Outside of time and space. And it is not orderly at all. Infact, IT IS Chaotic at FIRST.


I receive access to many EXPRESSIONS and POTENTIALS of that PICTURE. It arrives ahead of time or instantly and with many of my ASPECTS too. Any words or descriptions of the concept IS last on the List.
 




Now when I do...WOW! Is my Creativity limited. Most humans feel this is normal day to day living with expectations and repetious patterns over and over again. In this life experience, I have rarely experienced this type of existence. So I have consciously realized I chose a few human experiences to really feel and understand these limitations. {smiles} I chose to feel without arrogance or judgement why so many of us choose to limit and fear a change of any nature or any new concept.




These blessings in disguise or human dramas have created a whole view of living with a deeper compassion and feelings on how to allow for new creative sparks. One Fresh little eye opened slowly at first. Try feeling just one little new possibility.  It is your innate birthright to draw love particles to you...to create. Every moment. Consciously. Without expectation or conditions. Accept the love of Your Intimate Presence for You. Your Presence is waiting to participate in Life. By Creative Invitation Only. Heart to Heart.

~♥♥♥~
I never leave 'home without it'...a visual or sound expression or just a little opening that allows for a new concept or possibility.

The Google Art Project ~ Explore Museums and Great Works of Art ~ Amit Sood



Pause Sovereign Music Player before playing all Videos.


Explore Museums and Great Works of Art
in the Google Art Project

Posted by Amit Sood, Head of Google Art Project
http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/02/explore-museums-and-great-works-of-art.html

It started when a small group of us who were passionate about art got together to think about how we might use our technology to help museums make their art more accessible—not just to regular museum-goers or those fortunate to have great galleries on their doorsteps, but to a whole new set of people who might otherwise never get to see the real thing up close.

We're also lucky here to have access to technology like Picasa and App Engine and to have colleagues who love a challenge—like building brand-new technology to enable Street View to go indoors! Thanks to this, and our unique collaboration with museums around the world, we were able to turn our 20% project into something you can try out for yourself today at http://www.googleartproject.com/.

You’ll find a selection of super high-resolution images of famous works of art as well as more than a thousand other images, by more than 400 artists—all in one place. And with Street View technology, you can take a virtual tour inside 17 of the world’s most acclaimed art museums, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art and MoMA in New York, The State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Tate Britain & The National Gallery in London, Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid, the Uffizi Gallery in Florence and Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.

Here are a few things you can do:
One of the things I love about working at Google is that you can come up with an idea one day and the next day start getting to work to make it a reality. That's what happened with the Art Project—a new tool we're announcing today which puts more than 1,000 works of art at your fingertips, in extraordinary detail.


Officer and Laughing Girl, Johannes Vermeer
(The Frick Collection, New York - U.S.)
Dive into brushstroke-level detail:
On top of the 1,000+ other images, each of the 17 museums selected one artwork to be photographed in extraordinary detail using super high resolution or “gigapixel” photo-capturing technology. Each of these images contains around 7 billion pixels—that's that’s around 1,000 times more detailed than your average digital camera—and a specially-built “microscope view” uses Picasa to deliver these images at amazingly high resolution. You can zoom in to see Van Gogh’s famous brushwork or watch how previously hard to-see elements of an artwork suddenly become clear—such as the tiny Latin couplet which appears in Hans Holbein the Younger’s “The Merchant Georg Gisze.”


The bedroom, Vincent van Gogh (Van Gogh Museum)
Explore inside the museums:
The Street View team designed a brand-new vehicle called the “trolley” to take 360-degree images of the interior of selected galleries. These were then stitched together and mapped to their location, enabling smooth navigation of more than 385 rooms within the museums. We also created a new clickable annotation feature, so you can jump from being inside a museum one moment to viewing a particular artwork the next. Once inside an mage, an info panel lets you read more about an artwork, find more works by that artist and watch related YouTube videos. Gallery interiors can also be explored directly from within Street View in Google Maps.


Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy—with a view on Botticelli’s
“The Birth of Venus”
Create your own collection:
With the “Create an Artwork Collection” feature, you can save specific views of any of the artworks and build your own personalized collection. Comments can be added to each painting and the whole collection can then be shared with friends, family or on the web using the integrated goo.gl URL shortener.

We’re incredibly excited about this project—it’s our first step toward making great art more accessible, and we hope to add more museums and works of art in time. So whether you’re a student, an aspiring artist or a casual museum-goer, we hope the Google Art Project gives you a fun and unusual way to interact with art—and hopefully inspires you to visit the real thing.
