45SURF(R) Hero's Odyssey Mythology Photography
Homer's Odyssey: Tell me, O muse, of that ingenious hero who travelled far and wide. . . Many cities did he visit, and many were the nations with whose manners and customs he was acquainted; moreover he suffered much by sea while trying to save his own life and bring his men safely home; --Homer's Odyssey translated by Samuel Butler

"Thus I beheld assemble the fair school
Of that lord of the song pre-eminent,
Who o'er the others like an eagle soars."
--Dante on Homer in The Divine Comedy Longfellow translation

"As, in the serious style, Homer is pre-eminent among poets. . ." --Aristotle's Poetics
"Homer, the sovereign poet." --Dante Alighieri, Divina Commedia.
"Follow your own star." --Dante
". . they all fall off, one by one, until we are left with Virgil and Homer, and perhaps Homer alone." -Thomas Jefferson

"Science arose from poetry... when times change the two can meet again on a higher level as friends." -Goethe

The theory's odyssey, like all science, begins in the "Rage of Achilles."
Dr. E's ten-foot-wide, fine-art panorama: The Iliad, Odyssey, and Aeneid
John Ford. John Wayne. Stagecoach. The Searchers. Easy Rider and 2001 A Space Odyssey. All exalted, and were exalted by, the world's most epic, natural stage--Monument Valley. It is easy to see why the greatest storytellers gravitated towards this scenery, for the towering monuments stand forth like archetypal mythology herself--reminding us of the hardness and immutability of the heroic heart as it stands tall for principle at high noon, as well as her soft, ever-changing beauty, as the lofty clouds paint the red land in shadow and light.

The great director Sergio Leone, who chiseled the young Clint Eastwood into an international star in A Fistful of Dollars and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly stated, "The greatest scriptwriter of Westerns was Homer. The Archetypes of yesterday's cowboys were Achilles, Ajax, Agamemnon, and Hector." The first half of Virgil's Aeneid paralleled the Odyssey, while the second half followed the plot of the Iliad. Socrates would cite the Heroic honor of Achilles while choosing death over dishonor in Fathering Western Philosophy (and thus science and technology!), while Virgil would mentor Dante on down through hell in the Inferno, where Dante would also encounter Homer, calling him the "premiere poet."

In his later years the great poet who authored the Declaration of Independence--Thomas Jefferson would write, "As we advance in life, they all fall off, one by one, until we are left with Virgil and Homer, and perhaps Homer alone." And so it is that as the rains fall year after year, and the rivers run, the body of the land is etched away so as to reveal the immortal soul, and towering there we can see the unyielding poetry--the Iliad, Odyssey, and Aeneid. Trust me on this--take a copy of the Iliad when you visit Monument Valley.

Ecce Deus fortior me, qui veniens dominabitur mihi.
("Behold, a deity/goddess stronger than I; who coming, shall rule over me.")
--Dante in La Vita Nuova on Beatrice--his muse and inspiration for The Divine Comedy

After spending the Malibu summer setting behind the land, the sun returns to set over the ocean in the fall, once again calling us to adventure—“to sail beyond the sunset.” At first I thought the thick clouds would block the sun on this fine October evening, but then, at the last moment, Poseidon relented and Apollo burst through, lighting up the sea, sky, and land with a most epic sunset.

Rather than signifying the end of the day, the colorful sunset, like the resplendent autumn, calls us to new adventures, as the night falls and we are greeted by “what dreams may come.” Alfred Lord Tennyson caught the rugged spirit of “sailing beyond the sunset” in his poem Ulysses—“To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield."

To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
It may be that the gulfs will wash us down:
It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles,
And see the great Achilles, whom we knew.
Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho'
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
--Ulysses by Alferd Lord Tennyson

On First Looking into Chapman’s Homer
MUCH have I travell'd in the realms of gold,
And many goodly states and kingdoms seen;
Round many western islands have I been
Which bards in fealty to Apollo hold.
Oft of one wide expanse had I been told 5
That deep-brow'd Homer ruled as his demesne:
Yet did I never breathe its pure serene
Till I heard Chapman speak out loud and bold:
Then felt I like some watcher of the skies
When a new planet swims into his ken; 10
Or like stout Cortez, when with eagle eyes
He stared at the Pacific—and all his men
Look'd at each other with a wild surmise—
Silent, upon a peak in Darien.
--John Keats. 1795–1821:

Thor—the God of Thunder—was a giant slayer who used his hammer’s magical powers to defend the common man. Just as Odysseus slayed the giant Cyclops who was eating his crewmembers and David slayed Goliath with his mere sling, Thor battled those far larger than himself, representing that archetypal hero who serves both principle and his people—those who speak Truth to Power—the Cowboy who stands tall at high noon, alone facing a band of outlaws. There is a reason we see this archetype over and over throughout the world’s mythologies, for it speaks to our Natural Sense of Justice and Moral Symmetry inherent in the deepest parts of our souls.

During a beauty contest between the goddesses, Aphrodite bribed the judge Paris by promising him the love of the most beautiful woman Helen. Paris chooses Aphrodite and Helen leaves her Greek husband Menalus for the Trojan Paris, thusly becoming the infamous "Helen of Troy." And so it is that both Homer's Iliad and the ten-year war to get Helen back which prefaces Odysseus's ten-year Odyssey trying to return on home from the war, have their roots in a beauty contest. 45SURF salutes the classic goddess archetypes, from Athena, to Aphrodite, to Artemis, et al.
Homer's Odyssey
The man for wisdom’s various arts renown’d,
Long exercised in woes, O Muse! resound;
Who, when his arms had wrought the destined fall
Of sacred Troy, and razed her heaven-built wall,
Wandering from clime to clime, observant stray’d,
Their manners noted, and their states survey’d,
On stormy seas unnumber’d toils he bore,
Safe with his friends to gain his natal shore:
Vain toils! their impious folly dared to prey
On herds devoted to the god of day;
The god vindictive doom’d them never more
(Ah, men unbless’d!) to touch that natal shore.
Oh, snatch some portion of these acts from fate,
Celestial Muse! and to our world relate.
--translated by Alexander Pope

Homer's Odyssey
The Man, O Muse, informe that many a way
Wound with his wisedome to his wished stay;
That wanderd wondrous farre when He the towne
Of sacred Troy had sackt and shiverd downe.
The cities of a world of nations,
With all their manners, mindes and fashions,
He saw and knew; at Sea felt many woes,
Much care sustaind, to save from overthrowes
Himselfe and friends in their retreate for home.
--translated by George Chapman

Homer's Odyssey
Tell me, O muse, of that ingenious hero who travelled far and wide after he had sacked the famous town of Troy. Many cities did he visit, and many were the nations with whose manners and customs he was acquainted; moreover he suffered much by sea while trying to save his own life and bring his men safely home; but do what he might he could not save his men, for they perished through their own sheer folly in eating the cattle of the Sun-god Hyperion; so the god prevented them from ever reaching home. Tell me, too, about all these things, O daughter of Jove, from whatsoever source you may know them.

So now all who escaped death in battle or by shipwreck had got safely home except Ulysses, and he, though he was longing to return to his wife and country, was detained by the goddess Calypso, who had got him into a large cave and wanted to marry him. But as years went by, there came a time when the gods settled that he should go back to Ithaca; even then, however, when he was among his own people, his troubles were not yet over; nevertheless all the gods had now begun to pity him except Neptune, who still persecuted him without ceasing and would not let him get home. --translated by Samuel Butler

The great poet Homer repeats the epithet “the child of morning, rosy-fingered Dawn" throughout the Iliad and Odyssey, and the words always comes to mind while witnessing Malibu’s spectacular sunrises. "When the child of morning, rosy-fingered Dawn, appeared,” Homer sang in the Odyssey, “I bade my men on board and loose the hawsers. Then they took their places and smote the grey sea with their oars; so we sailed on with sorrow in our hearts, but glad to have escaped death though we had lost our comrades.”

Odysseus shares the mixed feelings of departing the Island of Cyclopes, after the Cyclops ate several of Odysseus’s crewmembers before Odysseus was able to dispatch the giant, one-eyed monster.

Though regrets and sorrow are most natural, we must never let them trump the rising sun—the recurring glory of “the child of morning, rosy-fingered Dawn”—as we too “smite the grey sea with our oars” and carry on in honor of all those less fortunate who cannot. Simple thanks is good, but action in the service of others is more sincere, and so we seize the day. “Carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero!” advised the ancient poet Horace—“Seize the day, put no trust in tomorrow.”

The face that launch'd a thousand ships

Was this the face that launch'd a thousand ships,
And burnt the topless towers of Ilium?
Sweet Helen, make me immortal with a kiss.
Her lips suck forth my soul: see where it flies!
Come, Helen, come, give me my soul again.
Here will I dwell, for heaven is in these lips,
And all is dross that is not Helena.
I will be Paris, and for love of thee,
Instead of Troy, shall Wittenberg be sack'd;
And I will combat with weak Menelaus,
And wear thy colours on my plumed crest;
Yea, I will wound Achilles in the heel,
And then return to Helen for a kiss.
O, thou art fairer than the evening air
Clad in the beauty of a thousand stars;
Brighter art thou than flaming Jupiter
When he appear'd to hapless Semele;
More lovely than the monarch of the sky
In wanton Arethusa's azur'd arms;
And none but thou shalt be my paramour!

descends to call Telemachus to Adventure in the first book of Homer's 
Odyssey--to man up, find news of his true father Odysseus, and rid his 
home of the false suitors, and too, it is Athena who descends in the 
first book of Homer's Iliad, to calm the Rage of Achilles who is about 
to draw his sword so as to slay his commander who just seized Achilles' 
prize, thusly robbing Achilles of his Honor--the higher prize Achilles 
fought for. And now Athena descends once again, assuming the form of a

Homer's Iliad
Sing, O goddess, the anger of Achilles son of Peleus, that brought countless ills upon the Achaeans. Many a brave soul did it send hurrying down to Hades, and many a hero did it yield a prey to dogs and vultures, for so were the counsels of Jove fulfilled from the day on which the son of Atreus, king of men, and great Achilles, first fell out with one another.

And which of the gods was it that set them on to quarrel? It was the son of Jove and Leto; for he was angry with the king and sent a pestilence upon the host to plague the people, because the son of Atreus had dishonoured Chryses his priest. Now Chryses had come to the ships of the Achaeans to free his daughter, and had brought with him a great ransom: moreover he bore in his hand the sceptre of Apollo wreathed with a suppliant's wreath and he besought the Achaeans, but most of all the two sons of Atreus, who were their chiefs.

"Sons of Atreus," he cried, "and all other Achaeans, may the gods who dwell in Olympus grant you to sack the city of Priam, and to reach your homes in safety; but free my daughter, and accept a ransom for her, in reverence to Apollo, son of Jove." --translated by Samuel Butler

45surf exalts the epic goddess archetype: The Birth of Venus (Botticelli)

"Recommend virtue to your children; it alone, not money, can make them happy." --Beethoven.

Dr. E: Come ride with us--the mentors of all mentors--the fellowship of immortal souls who have ever "sailed beyond the sunset" and headed West alongside Ulysses. Dante called Homer "the sovereign poet" while Virgil, who structured the first half of his Aeneid like Homer's Odyssey and the second half like the Iliad from where he borrowed his lead character thev "pius" Aeneas, mentored Dante on down through Hell. Thomas Jefferson wrote, "as we advance in life these things fall off one by one, and I suspect that we are left at last with only Homer and Virgil, and perhaps Homer alone." Socrates, who mentored Plato who in turn mentored Aristotle whom Dante labeled "the master of those who know," cited the courage of Achilles in Homer's Iliad, when he stood for Truth and Reason over politics before the Athenian Jury. Like Achilles, Socrates knew that he would die for refusing to back down from the philosophical battle and rescind his simple teaching that "Virtue/Arete does not come from money, but money and every lasting good of man derives from Virtue." Aristotle considered Homer the greatest of epic poets, as did Shelley and George Chapman, who designated Homer the "Prince of Poets" while translating the Iliad into the form that Abraham Lincoln would eventually read, leading Lincoln to state, "Everything that one needs to know about his fellow man may be found herein." Alexander the Great carried Homer's Iliad upon all his expeditions, and during his presidency, Lincoln traveled with a well-worn copy of Shakespeare's works, while Jefferson wrote that Shakespeare ought be read in the evening and, singled out by one who wishes to learn the full powers of the English language." And so it is that Dr. E's class begins with Homer and ends with Hamlet, and I invite ye to come ride with us all. --from Dr. E's The Hero's Odyssey Mythology Code of Honor.

Dr. E's NSF-funded Ph.D. dissertation titled Multiple Unit Artificial Retina Chipset to Aid The Visually Impaired and Enhanced CMOS Phototransistors received a Merill Lynch Innovations Award, and the technology is now helping the blind see. Dr. E receieved the Tanner Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching while at UNC Chapel Hill as well as an honorary membership in the American Soceity of Physics Teachers.

Recently, upon donating some of his fine art photography to a hospital following a successful gallery show in LA, Dr. E realized that someday soon, a patient would see one of his fine art images hanging in the hospital's hallways with the retinal prosthesis from his physics Ph.D. dissertation.  The appendix of the dissertation concerned itself with theoretical physics known as Moving Dimensions Theory--a theory born from Dr. E's days working with the late John Archibald Wheeler at Princeton University--and Dr. E signs all of his fine art with its simple, far-reaching equation--dx4/dt=ic.  In words, dx4/dt=ic stipulates that the fourth dimension is expanding relative to the three spatial dimensions at the rate of c (the velocity of light), and that photons of light are are but momenergy that surfs this fourth expanding dimension.  MDT weaves change into the foundational fabric of spacetime, and too, it provides the foundational mechanism for all motion--the fourth expanding dimension is what carries every photon along its odyssey. In his paper, "A Hero's Odyssey with Galileo, Newton, Faraday, Maxwell, Planck, Einstein, Schrodinger, Bohr, and the Greats towards Moving Dimensions Theory. E pur si muove," Dr. E writes,

MDT provides both the "elementary foundations" of relativity that Einstein yet sought, and the foundational physical reality underlying and causing quantum nonlocality and entanglement, which Schrodinger labeled th "characteristic trait" of QM. Einstein's Principle of Relativity, as well as his two postulates, derive from MDT's simple physical model (Fig. 1) and single postulate which is more concise and has the added benefits of providing for free will, liberating us from the block universe, weaving change into the fundamental fabric of space-time for the first time in the history of relativity, and providing an elementary, foundational physical model for time and all its arrows and asymmetries, entropy, and QM's nonlocality and entanglement, as well as reality's probabilistic nature. The fourth dimension is inherently nonlocal via its invariant expansion, which is the source of nonlocality as well as relativity. All of this is more fully developed in Dr. E's 2008 paper on M, which examines Einstein's 1912 Manuscript on Relativity and derives relativity from MDT's dx4/dt=ic: Time as an Emergent Phenomenom: fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/238. Simple, logical proofs of MDT:

MDT PROOF#1: Relativity tells us that a timeless, ageless photon remains in one place in the fourth dimension. Quantum mechanics tells us that a photon propagates as a spherically-symmetric expanding wavefront at the velocity of c. Ergo, the fourth dimension must be expanding relative to the three spatial dimensions at the rate of c, in a spherically-symmetric manner. The expansion of the fourth dimension is the source of nonlocality, entanglement, time and all its arrows and asymmetries, c, relativity, entropy, free will, and all motion, change, and measurement, for no measurement can be made without change. For the first time in the history of relativity, change has been wedded to the fundamental fabric of spacetime in MDT.

MDT PROOF#2: Einstein (1912 Man. on Rel.) and Minkowski wrote x4=ict. Ergo dx4/dt=ic.

MDT PROOF#3: The only way to stay stationary in the three spatial dimensions is to move at c through the fourth dimension. The only way to stay stationary in the fourth dimension is to move at c through the three spatial dimensions. Ergo the fourth dimension is moving at c relative to the three spatial dimensions. MDT twitter proof (limited to 140 characters): SR: photon is stationary in 4th dimension. QM: photon is probability wave expanding @ c. Ergo: 4th dimension expands @ c & MDT: dx4/dt=ic “from http://twitter.com/45surf

The foundational equation of award-winning Ph.D. physicists Dr. E's Moving Dimensions Theory dx4/dt=ic appears on all the 45surf clothing.

The above painting is Rembrandt's "Aristotle contemplating the bust of Homer," and the book tells the story of Dr. E's dx4/dt=ic, tracing the modern physics equation on back through the heroic odysseys of Einstein, to Maxwell and Farady, to Newton, to Galileo, to Copernicus, to Aristotle's "Natural Philosophy," to Socrates' trial whence he refused to rescind his teaching, "Virtue does not come from money, but money and every lasting good of man derives from virtue," citing the courage of Achilles in Homer's Iliad. And so it is that the history of modern science and technology, from Dr E's Moving Dimensions Theory and NSF-funded, award-winning physics Ph.D. dissertation which is now helping the blind see are traced along an odyssey leadig back to the very first word of Homer's Iliad--RAGE--the divine RAGE of Achilles which drove him to Speak Truth to Power, thusly fostering the scientific spirit which, the great physicist Feynman reminds us, is all about learning to "quetsion the experts." "Amicus Plato" amicus Aristoteles" magis a veritas," wrote Sir Isaac Newton which means, "Plato is my friend, Aristotle is my friend, but my greatest friend is Truth." This was likely inspired by Aritsotle's statement in the Nicomachean Ethis, "Where both are friends, it is right to prefer truth."

Nor is Dr. E alone in perceiving the deep connection between science and Epic Poetry, for Goethe wrote, "Science arose from poetry--when times change the two can meet again on a higher level as friends." Just as Aristotle noted that character was defined by virtuous action, so too did Eisntein note that science was advanced primarily by character, writing, "Most people say that it is the intellect which makes a great scientist. They are wrong: it is character." In saltuting the great Copernicus, Einstein saluted not only his scientific work, but the "greatness of his personality"--his character.

Once it was recognised that the earth was not the center of the world, but only one of the smaller planets, the illusion of the central significance of man himself became untenable. Hence, Nicolaus Copernicus, through his work and the greatness of his personality, taught man to be honest. (Albert Einstein, Message on the 410th Anniversary of the Death of Copernicus, 1953)

Moving Dimensions Theory: Time as an Emergent Phenomenon: Traveling Back to the Heroic Age of Physics by Elliot McGucken

Essay Abstract

In his 1912 Manuscript on Relativity, Einstein never stated that time is the fourth dimension, but rather he wrote x4 = ict. The fourth dimension is not time, but ict. Despite this, prominent physicists have oft equated time and the fourth dimension, leading to un-resolvable paradoxes and confusion regarding time’s physical nature, as physicists mistakenly projected properties of the three spatial dimensions onto a time dimension, resulting in curious concepts including frozen time and block universes in which the past and future are omni-present, thusly denying free will, while implying the possibility of time travel into the past, which visitors from the future have yet to verify. Beginning with the postulate that time is an emergent phenomenon resulting from a fourth dimension expanding relative to the three spatial dimensions at the rate of c, diverse phenomena from relativity, quantum mechanics, and statistical mechanics are accounted for. Time dilation, the equivalence of mass and energy, nonlocality, wave-particle duality, and entropy are shown to arise from a common, deeper physical reality expressed with dx4/dt=ic. This postulate and equation, from which Einstein’s relativity is derived, presents a fundamental model accounting for the emergence of time, the constant velocity of light, the fact that the maximum velocity is c, and the fact that c is independent of the velocity of the source, as photons are but matter surfing a fourth expanding dimension. In general relativity, Einstein showed that the dimensions themselves could bend, curve, and move. The present theory extends this principle, postulating that the fourth dimension is moving independently of the three spatial dimensions, distributing locality and fathering time. This physical model underlies and accounts for time in quantum mechanics, relativity, and statistical mechanics, as well as entropy, the universe’s expansion, and time’s arrows.

"IF is a short, yet epic, poem exalting the Stoic, Heroic temperament, from Achilles, to Socrates, to Seneca on down." --Dr. E

If—
BY RUDYARD KIPLING
(‘Brother Square-Toes’—Rewards and Fairies)

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

of that ingenious hero who travelled far and wide. . . Many cities did

DostoyevskyPrinted on Fuji-crystal archival paper and front-mounted to 
plexiglass / acryllic.  The Nikon D810 captures the light with seven 
shots at 1 EV, the HDR process bends the light, and the fuji-crystal 
print front-mounted to plexiglass liberates the light!  Especially when 
illuminated by upscale LED spot- lighting!The fine art was shot with the 
nikon D810 and Nikon D800E!And I am mounting some on 
plexiglass/acryllic--front mounting them!  Some I am printing on lossy 
fuji-crystal archival paper too, and then front mounting 
40"x60" versions to plexiglass--will send photos!The secret to 
HDR photography is that you want people to say, "Woe dude--that's 
unreal!"  And not, "Dude--that's not real!"  
"Unreal" is the word they use when they're trying to figure 
out the photo--what makes it cool--is it a photo?  Is it painted?  How'd 
it come to be--how'd you bend the light that way?  "That's not 
real," is what they say if you have the saturation/HDR/ etc. turned 
up too high. :)Some (almost) final edits for December's Los Angeles

Achilles' Odyssey T-shirt Photos Taken by the Nikon D800E!  She (The 
d800E) Was Jealous, But I still Love Her!The 45surfer bracket setup for 
simultaneous stills and video (Nikon D810 + 150-600mm Tamron Zoom Lens 
for Nikon + the new 4K Sony FDR-AX100/B 4K Video Camcorder) allows me to 
shoot 4K video alongside 36mp stills of the Surf Goddesses!  Will be 
using this setup at the Vans US Open of Surfing in late July in 
Huntington Beach (Surf City USA!), and the Hurley Pro at Trestles in 
September!  This power was simply inconceivable a few short years ago!  
There was a lull so I shot some of the 45surf t shirts and 45surf 
hoodies too!  Fall is around the corner when I sleep in my hoody every 
night as the Malibu Canyons nights get cold!The Nikon D810 is the 
hottest model I have shot to date, up there with the swimsuit bikini 
model goddesses! :)JK, I could shoot the bikini models with a Canon 5D 
MK3 even and they'd still look good.Shown with the Tamron SP 150-600mm

(the D800E) Was Jealous, But I still Love Her!The Nikon D 810 is mounted 
on a sturdy aluminum Vanguard Tripod or quality Manfroto Monopod!  I 
prefer the alunimum over the carbon as it is thinner and heavier and has 
less of a chance of getting caught in a gust and tipping over!  Although 
it happened once at the grand canyon, but I caught it!  But the 
lightweight carbon-fiber with the wider legs would blow away! :)All the

Beautiful Italian Goddess
. . . Come, my friends,
'Tis not too late to seek a newer world.
Push off, and sitting well in order smite
The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds
To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars, until I die.
It may be that the gulfs will wash us down:
It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles,
And see the great Achilles, whom we knew.
Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho'
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Surfers and cowboys are classic American archetypes. While one goes with the flow, the other rides against the wind, and hence the 45SURF trademark--the old Colt .45 Revolver from Sergio Leone's/Clint Eastwood's Fistful of Dollars on a Surfboard--is a modern yin-yang symbol. The cowboy and surfer archetypes swirl into one-another throughout 45SURF, for at the end of the day, both are "Dudes."

Herman Melville's Moby Dick
Chapter I
LOOMINGS
Call me Ishmael. Some years ago -- never mind how long precisely -- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen, and regulating the circulation. Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people's hats off -- then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can. This is my substitute for pistol and ball. With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword; I quietly take to the ship. There is nothing surprising in this. If they but knew it, almost all men in their degree, some time or other, cherish very nearly the same feelings towards the ocean with me.

Homer's Iliad
Achilles’ wrath, to Greece the direful spring
Of woes unnumber’d, heavenly goddess, sing!
That wrath which hurl’d to Pluto’s gloomy reign
The souls of mighty chiefs untimely slain;
Whose limbs unburied on the naked shore,
Devouring dogs and hungry vultures tore.1
Since great Achilles and Atrides strove,
Such was the sovereign doom, and such the will of Jove!2
Declare, O Muse! in what ill-fated hour3
Sprung the fierce strife, from what offended power
Latona’s son a dire contagion spread,4
And heap’d the camp with mountains of the dead;
The king of men his reverent priest defied,5
And for the king’s offence the people died.
--translated by Alexander Pope

Homer's Odyssey
The man for wisdom’s various arts renown’d,
Long exercised in woes, O Muse! resound;
Who, when his arms had wrought the destined fall
Of sacred Troy, and razed her heaven-built wall,
Wandering from clime to clime, observant stray’d,
Their manners noted, and their states survey’d,
On stormy seas unnumber’d toils he bore,
Safe with his friends to gain his natal shore:
Vain toils! their impious folly dared to prey
On herds devoted to the god of day;
The god vindictive doom’d them never more
(Ah, men unbless’d!) to touch that natal shore.
Oh, snatch some portion of these acts from fate,
Celestial Muse! and to our world relate.
--translated by Alexander Pope

Alexander Pope on Homer's Iliad & Odyssey: Our author’s work is a wild paradise, where, if we cannot see all the beauties so distinctly as in an ordered garden, it is only because the number of them is infinitely greater. It is like a copious nursery, which contains the seeds and first productions of every kind, out of which those who followed him have but selected some particular plants, each according to his fancy, to cultivate and beautify. If some things are too luxuriant it is owing to the richness of the soil; and if others are not arrived to perfection or maturity, it is only because they are overrun and oppressed by those of a stronger nature." Alexander Pope on Homer's Iliad & Odyssey, 1727.

She Walks in Beauty
BY LORD BYRON (GEORGE GORDON)
She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o’er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express,
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

Dante's Divine Comedy
translated by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Inferno: Canto I

Midway upon the odyssey of our life
I found myself within a forest dark,
For the straightforward pathway had been lost.
Ah me! how hard a thing it is to say
What was this forest savage, rough, and stern,
Which in the very thought renews the fear.
So bitter is it, death is little more;
But of the good to treat, which there I found,
Speak will I of the other things I saw there.
I cannot well repeat how there I entered,
So full was I of slumber at the moment
In which I had abandoned the true way.
But after I had reached a mountain's foot,
At that point where the valley terminated,
Which had with consternation pierced my heart,
Upward I looked, and I beheld its shoulders,
Vested already with that planet's rays
Which leadeth others right by every road.
Then was the fear a little quieted
That in my heart's lake had endured throughout
The night, which I had passed so piteously.
And even as he, who, with distressful breath,
Forth issued from the sea upon the shore,
Turns to the water perilous and gazes;
So did my soul, that still was fleeing onward,
Turn itself back to re-behold the pass
Which never yet a living person left.
After my weary body I had rested,
The way resumed I on the desert slope,
So that the firm foot ever was the lower.
And lo! almost where the ascent began,
A panther light and swift exceedingly,
Which with a spotted skin was covered o'er!
And never moved she from before my face,
Nay, rather did impede so much my way,
That many times I to return had turned.
The time was the beginning of the morning,
And up the sun was mounting with those stars
That with him were, what time the Love Divine
At first in motion set those beauteous things;
So were to me occasion of good hope,
The variegated skin of that wild beast,
The hour of time, and the delicious season;
But not so much, that did not give me fear
A lion's aspect which appeared to me.
He seemed as if against me he were coming
With head uplifted, and with ravenous hunger,
So that it seemed the air was afraid of him;
And a she-wolf, that with all hungerings
Seemed to be laden in her meagreness,
And many folk has caused to live forlorn!
She brought upon me so much heaviness,
With the affright that from her aspect came,
That I the hope relinquished of the height.
And as he is who willingly acquires,
And the time comes that causes him to lose,
Who weeps in all his thoughts and is despondent,
E'en such made me that beast withouten peace,
Which, coming on against me by degrees
Thrust me back thither where the sun is silent.
While I was rushing downward to the lowland,
Before mine eyes did one present himself,
Who seemed from long-continued silence hoarse.
When I beheld him in the desert vast,
"Have pity on me," unto him I cried,
"Whiche'er thou art, or shade or real man!"
He answered me: "Not man; man once I was,
And both my parents were of Lombardy,
And Mantuans by country both of them.
'Sub Julio' was I born, though it was late,
And lived at Rome under the good Augustus,
During the time of false and lying gods.
A poet was I, and I sang that just
Son of Anchises, who came forth from Troy,
After that Ilion the superb was burned.
But thou, why goest thou back to such annoyance?
Why climb'st thou not the Mount Delectable,
Which is the source and cause of every joy?"
"Now, art thou that Virgilius and that fountain
Which spreads abroad so wide a river of speech?"
I made response to him with bashful forehead.
"O, of the other poets honour and light,
Avail me the long study and great love
That have impelled me to explore thy volume!
Thou art my master, and my author thou,
Thou art alone the one from whom I took
The beautiful style that has done honour to me.
Behold the beast, for which I have turned back;
Do thou protect me from her, famous Sage,
For she doth make my veins and pulses tremble."
"Thee it behoves to take another road,"
Responded he, when he beheld me weeping,
"If from this savage place thou wouldst escape;
Because this beast, at which thou criest out,
Suffers not any one to pass her way,
But so doth harass him, that she destroys him;
And has a nature so malign and ruthless,
That never doth she glut her greedy will,
And after food is hungrier than before.
Many the animals with whom she weds,
And more they shall be still, until the Greyhound
Comes, who shall make her perish in her pain.
He shall not feed on either earth or pelf,
But upon wisdom, and on love and virtue;
'Twixt Feltro and Feltro shall his nation be;
Of that low Italy shall he be the saviour,
On whose account the maid Camilla died,
Euryalus, Turnus, Nisus, of their wounds;
Through every city shall he hunt her down,
Until he shall have driven her back to Hell,
There from whence envy first did let her loose.
Therefore I think and judge it for thy best
Thou follow me, and I will be thy guide,
And lead thee hence through the eternal place,
Where thou shalt hear the desperate lamentations,
Shalt see the ancient spirits disconsolate,
Who cry out each one for the second death;
And thou shalt see those who contented are
Within the fire, because they hope to come,
Whene'er it may be, to the blessed people;
To whom, then, if thou wishest to ascend,
A soul shall be for that than I more worthy;
With her at my departure I will leave thee;
Because that Emperor, who reigns above,
In that I was rebellious to his law,
Wills that through me none come into his city.
He governs everywhere, and there he reigns;
There is his city and his lofty throne;
O happy he whom thereto he elects!"
And I to him: "Poet, I thee entreat,
By that same God whom thou didst never know,
So that I may escape this woe and worse,
Thou wouldst conduct me there where thou hast said,
That I may see the portal of Saint Peter,
And those thou makest so disconsolate."
Then he moved on, and I behind him followed.

simultaneous stills and video (Nikon D810 + 150-600mm Tamron Zoom Lens 
for Nikon + the new 4K Sony FDR-AX100/B 4K Video Camcorder) allows me to 
shoot 4K video alongside 36mp stills of the Surf Goddesses!  Will be 
using this setup at the Vans US Open of Surfing in late July in 
Huntington Beach (Surf City USA!), and the Hurley Pro at Trestles in 
September!  This power was simply inconceivable a few short years ago!  
There was a lull so I shot some of the 45surf t shirts and 45surf 
hoodies too!  Fall is around the corner when I sleep in my hoody every 
night as the Malibu Canyons nights get cold!The Nikon D810 is the 
hottest model I have shot to date, up there with the swimsuit bikini

prefer the alunimum over the carbon as it is thinner and heavier and has 
less of a chance of getting caught in a gust and tipping over!  Although 
it happened once at the grand canyon, but I caught it!  But the 
lightweight carbon-fiber with the wider legs would blow away! :)All the

GHOST OF NAVAJO WILD MUSTANG

paper front-mounted to acrylic.
All sizes/formats in catalog.
The Navajos considered the Slot Canyons to be sacred grounds, and witnessing the most unique, tranquil beauty of the natural temple carved in the red and orange sandstone by centuries of flash floods, it is easy to understand why. As the Navajo guide drove us across the Arizona desert sand in his 4-wheel-drive Jeep, he lamented that horses were disappearing from the reservation as more and more of the youngsters were opting for ATVs and motorcycles instead. As he lead us on through the Upper Antelope Canyons, ghosts magically appeared as the wind whipped the dusty desert sands across shafts of sunlight streaming down into the canyons. When I returned home, I was most surprised to find that my Nikon D800E had magically caught the ghost of a Mustang rearing up on its hind legs, standing over fifteen-feet tall, as the forces of nature exalted the archetypal form of the North American wild horse—the Mustang—letting us know the eternal spirit yet looms larger than our temporal, fleeting reality. One could only conclude that the spirit of the Mustang yet rules these lands, for there were no ghosts of ATVs no motorcycles to be seen. The Mustang, in addition to being the car I drive, is the free-roaming “wild horse” of the American West. The United States Congress recognized Mustangs as "living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West, which continue to contribute to the diversity of life forms within the Nation and enrich the lives of the American people."

RAGE OF ACHILLES OVER RIVER STYX

Nikon D800E
Malibu, CA

The word “rage” is the very first word of Homer’s Iliad, and thus it opens all of epic poetry—from the Aeneid, to Paradise Lost, to Dante’s Inferno, on down. The great Achilles quits the Greek army in a fit of rage as his commander pulls rank on him and robs him of his honor, seizing his prize. When the Greeks begin to lose, the commander offers Achilles 100x the prizes he seized to return, but Achilles is a man who cannot be bought. Achilles does ultimately return to battle, in an even greater fit of rage, to avenge the death of a friend, though he knows he will die. The father of Philosophy Socrates’ would reference Achilles’ honor at his own trial, also choosing death over dishonor. Achilles’ rage is but the spearhead and manifestation of that classic, epic honor at the seat of the soul and at the center and circumference of Homer’s epic poems—a rage for honor which Achilles lived and died for, and which gave birth to philosophy and thus science.

The great director Martin Scorcese recently stated in Fast Company, “I'm concerned about a culture where everything is immediate and then discarded. I just read (my 12-year-old daughter Francesca) a children's version of The Iliad. I wanted her to know where it all comes from. Every story, I told her, every story is in here, The Iliad.” The great director Sergio Leone, who chiseled the young Clint Eastwood into an international star in A Fistful of Dollars and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly stated, “The greatest scriptwriter of Westerns was Homer. The Archetypes of yesterday’s cowboys were Achilles, Ajax, Agamemnon, and Hector.” And so it is no great wonder that we yet might glimpse the Rage of Achilles thousands of miles and years later in Malibu, as a testament to the classical spirit.

HOMER'S ODYSSEY
The Man, O Muse, informe that many a way
Wound with his wisedome to his wished stay;
That wanderd wondrous farre when He the towne
Of sacred Troy had sackt and shiverd downe.
The cities of a world of nations,
With all their manners, mindes and fashions,
He saw and knew; at Sea felt many woes,
Much care sustaind, to save from overthrowes
Himselfe and friends in their retreate for home.
--translated by George Chapman

Tell me, O muse, of that ingenious hero who travelled far and wide after he had sacked the famous town of Troy. Many cities did he visit, and many were the nations with whose manners and customs he was acquainted; moreover he suffered much by sea while trying to save his own life and bring his men safely home; but do what he might he could not save his men, for they perished through their own sheer folly in eating the cattle of the Sun-god Hyperion; so the god prevented them from ever reaching home. Tell me, too, about all these things, O daughter of Jove, from whatsoever source you may know them.

So now all who escaped death in battle or by shipwreck had got safely home except Ulysses, and he, though he was longing to return to his wife and country, was detained by the goddess Calypso, who had got him into a large cave and wanted to marry him. But as years went by, there came a time when the gods settled that he should go back to Ithaca; even then, however, when he was among his own people, his troubles were not yet over; nevertheless all the gods had now begun to pity him except Neptune, who still persecuted him without ceasing and would not let him get home. --Translated by Samuel Butler

. . . Come, my friends,
'Tis not too late to seek a newer world.
Push off, and sitting well in order smite
The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds
To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars, until I die.
It may be that the gulfs will wash us down:
It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles,
And see the great Achilles, whom we knew.
Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho'
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Caught in the breakers, in the air I fly,
Towards wild white surf kissing shimmering sand.
Wind snaps the sail taught, the waves I defy,
Yet I'm drawn towards the line where water meets land,
For we only know one by the other,
The black words defined by the white borders,
As indifferent nature is man's mother,
Chaos emboldens the rarer order.
And out on that board I feel so alone,
In the blue, greeted by but reflection,
It's by nature our uniqueness is known,
Fleeting beauty caught by time's direction.
      Words are but the immortal part of me,
      Struggling from the fleeting thought to break free.
