All Things Return To Their Source by Walter Russell
This is an allegorical picture of the Cosmic Law of Cause and Effect. Everything that emanates from a galaxy, a sun, an atom or a human being comes back to its source. Similarly, every human being, atom, sun and galaxy returns in its own individual rhythm to its source in the Universal Oneness, in order to be re-emanated into the polarity of the manifested world.
According to Russell, the rings radiated from suns become planets. Once these are old enough, their rings become moons and the radiation off the moons create comets, which eventually return to the sun, as illustrated in this painting. The feminine figure demonstrates the feminine, disintegrated, expanding, dissolving principle of all creation, therefore she is, just like the entire painting, painted with colours from the blue-green part of the colour spectrum.

I've only just discovered Walter Russell and I've been totally bowled over by his work.
He's been described as "a modern-day Leonardo." Now, I must admit I wasn't too sure about that at first, but having seen some photos of his paintings and sculptures, and having read the first few chapters of The Secret of Light, I am beginning to agree.
He was an accomplished artist, scientist, philosopher and mystic who produced a Unified Theory of everything which, alas, was too advanced and way too radical to be accepted by mainstream science, although it appears that aspects of it keep being vindicated by it all the time.
I have posted The Secret of Light in this forum. I highly recommend it.

Walter Russell's Last Painting
This is Walter Russell's last painting, completed shortly before his death.
This pastel of a vortex whirls shows the universe or a solar system, illustrating the two archetypal male and female polarities that result from the division of the One into the Many, by expanding from the equator. The upper blue-green pole symbolizes the female principle, the lower red-violet pole symbolizes the male principle. Beginning and ending are one and the same, which Walter Russell demonstrated in a special way: he died on his birthday, the 19th of May 1963.
Feedback on 'some' of the book "The Secret of Life". I found first chapter enticing and then some chapters later I was getting a 'gut' feeling that the author was manufacturing a sort of religion around his observations. Well meaning. I am unfamiliar with "The Divine Iliad" which he keeps referring to - did he and his wife write that through inspiration?
I have decided not to read the rest of the book - apart from the science observations at the back.. the illustrations look quite fascinating (especially the arch), and I do think that God and Electricity and Waves etc are first cousins, so as to speak.
