In memory of a dear friend. « Blue Sun » aims to make us think about the immense, small and vast things in our world and beyond, those things which cannot be seen with human eyes.
The Sun is usually represented by warm, vivid tones and vibrantly joyful atmospheres, by contrast to the mysterious, cold, dark and nostalgic Moon. Yet, in reality, the inner core of the flame is blue. The range is between 2,600 and 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit, it is the most oxygen-rich type of flame. The temperature range for Red is 525 °C (980 °F).
Our traditional associations for color and temperature tell us that red is hot, and blue is cold. How strange is it to think of blue as a hot color?
As such, we cannot make assumptions on how someone truly feels based on how one looks or behaves.
We try to simplify things to break them down into small parts. As a software engineer, indeed, I understand this has made us solve the seemingly impossible. But when navigating the world of Ideas, I believe, no matter how hard you try, there is no way of simplifying things - and there is no point in simplifying things. People are multi-dimensional, contradictory on the surface, and no one is able to understand oneself, nor other selves. Compassion and empathy are what makes us be and feel connected with each others, beyond any rational understanding.
“I did not know how to reach him, how to catch up with him... The land of tears is so mysterious.” ― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
