  • Stupersticious
  • Symbolicious
  • Extras

CQ: Can you truly appreciate a work of art if you can’t understand it — such as watching a film in a language you don’t understand, or seeing a painting with symbolism you don’t get, or music which you don’t catch the subtleties? Is art like that wasted on those who do understand it, or should it be reachable by most people to be valuable?

Bumper: Scott Sigler

Promo: Technorama

Promo: How To Grow Your Geek

UPDATE: Amazing! After mentioning the memory of someone illustrating the sound of what our solar system might be like, I ran across this Flash animation of the sound of our solar system (link via io9).
