Dedication of the Peace Cubes: Equinox Earth Day 1997 at the UN Peace Bell

  1. 1. dedication of the peace cube united nations peace bell - 20 march 1997 earthday on the equinox on the internet - towards a culture of peace it is an honour to be here again last year i spoke of an invitation to a journey at that point the next step in the journey was to istanbul to the conference on human settlements in that journey - i said we need to go far beyond where we had gone if we are going to turn around the imbalance the disorder, the chaos, the unsustainability, the violence we need to go as far as we could in our minds we need to go as far as we can in connecting with each other in a global mind in the global network of connectivity that is the internet
  2. 2. as i followed this journey i came across a rather remarkable gift a gift of light i want to just take a moment to dedicate this gift - this little cube i call it the virtual light and colour cube and i dedicate it now - here - as the peace cube that is all of the colours that you can find in a computer virtually all the colours you can find anywhere in a little cube - in a little box
  3. 3. i had discovered, had realized - while on-line while planning on-line follow-up to istanbul about colours about how they can be made up of red green and blue light a little later i suddenly became aware from the mathematics of it that this cube existed this is the first time it's really been seen in public it is something that has many faces and so many different directions
  4. 4. it soon became clear that each of the faces of the cubes involved part of a journey from darkness to light by adding the three primary colours red, green and blue - to darkness - to black a whole series of patterns emerged i have become immersed in these patterns in discovering the wonderful gifts they are bringing to us - gifts of colour and light
  5. 5. what soon became very clear is although we have have first been able to see this cube through the lens of a computer the properties - the qualities - of this cube are properties of light - properties of nature they're mirrored back from the "other side" from the virtual world i just want to take a moment to give you one very brief glimpse of the cube i began to realize that
  6. 6. the patterns of moving from darkness to light we can arrange them in patterns of red, green, and blue with a wonderful moving patterns it turns out that there's another cube which does the same thing but differently it's going in the other direction from blue to green to red so i just wanted to dedicate this cube and ask you to join with me in a prayer that this light can be a symbol of all the different lights in one an icon to guide us through the next millennium
