Bowers, who surrendered after being shot three times, was asked at the scene why he'd done it and responded that he "had enough. They were killing our children," and "all Jews need to die," Officer Clint Thimons, a member of the SWAT team, told jurors at the federal courthouse in Pittsburgh.

At the Tree of Life Synagogue
Eleven people's lives had been gone-age
The gunman had malice
That caused unthinkable Violence
And shared his hate through all his rampage

Located in the centre of the #cbd (central business district) of #Melbourne #Australia is this mural, depicting a single tree with a halo around it, on brick, adjoining a Carpark in this concrete jungle.

The generic message is clear, I think.

But for me, this powerful scene says nature, trees and life are all so very sacred. And must be revered and preserved for all time.

No matter the cost… or human ‘progress’.

A picture of a densely light and dark shaded and heavily leafed growth (tree).

It sits upon a gnarled trunk and branches of light and dark brown. 

The tree is rooted on top of a flat pointed hill that is adorned with lush light-green grass. 

The scene is painted on a grey painted brick building wall. The wall sits adjacent to a car park that is empty (picture was taken on a weekend, so there’s an acre or more black bitumen out of shot, free from parked vehicles, that sits below this mural). The wall itself is huge - around 50-60 metres (150 feet) wide and 25-30 metres (80 feet) high. 

The striking thing about this scene is the bright yellow halo that surrounds the outtermost part of the tree. 

I believe it signifies the sacred nature of this beautiful tree and everything ‘nature’ itself. 

Good quality painting and relatively new I think. Very special indeed.

A trial is set to begin in the #Pittsburgh #synagogue #massacre. The 2018 shooting was the #deadliest #antisemitic #attack in U.S. history. Eleven people were killed and two were injured at the #TreeofLife synagogue. A 50-year-old man is accused of attacking with an #AR-5 rifle and three #handguns while shouting #antisemitic #slurs..#Juryselection starts today but could take weeks because the #massacre drew such widespread attention.#TreeofLife #HateCtimes https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/2023/04/24/pittsburgh-synagogue-shooting-trial/

The Tree of Life, at the British Museum, is made out of guns. It is a war memorial in one sense, though it does not commemorate soldiers and politicians. Instead it celebrates the courage of the people of Mozambique, many of them unarmed women and children. These people stood up to, and ultimately triumphed over, the culture of violence which had been inflicted upon their country.

42 brown boxes stacked up against a wall, having a vaguely castle silhouette. Also on my wall is a big metal tree of life, and a ceramic crescent moon. The boxes are filled with tarot decks I’ve made.

Tree of life. Designed by Leonard Eisenberg, has been drawn to show all the major, and some of the minor, branches of life tied to a geologic time scale. Enjoy it!

Why would the #mythologies of most civilizations talk about the Tree of Life aka the World Tree? Trees were not the first life form on this planet. Some unicellular algaes were. However, algaes cannot survive heat and drought, unlike trees. In fact, trees protect the ground from overheating by sun radiation and create shades and food for all lifeforms. Chapter 2 of the Torah, Greek Mythology, Norse Mythology,.. all talked about the #treeoflife Don't mess with
#trees. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azhpowOAwv8

Have you heard of forest bathing aka shinrin yoku? Trees have a lifeforce that you can feel, which is one of the reasons I make it a point to walk through the woods every day. I feel like today's tree is celebrating its life...

The tree was not hard to climb. Its bark texture was rough and she found grip very easily. Still, it took a while and a short moment of vertigo until Lucy reached the first branches of the crown that spanned above her like a giant neo-gothic dome. When she found firm ground on a stable fork, she took a moment of rest and looked around with amazement. ...

A friend has bequeathed me a painting she made many years ago of the Kabbalah tree of life. It’s a neat image but she’s also packed it with details regarding each sphere, and ensured that the colours of each of the 22 paths is correct. Neat eh?

#Esoteric #Kabbalah #TreeOfLife #Art #Qabalah #Magick

Kabbalah tree of life on black background, consisting of ten spheres, and 22 connecting paths, all coloured according to the Hermetic tradition.
Closeup of Kether, the Crown, the first sphere. Around the white circle are associations and details. In the centre is a silhouette of a bearded man wearing a crown around which swirls the universe.

Hello everyone!
I’m an assistant prof at Virginia Tech studying viral and microbial diversity. Lately my group has been focusing on giant viruses, but we are also interested in other protist viruses, and the role of viral endogenization in host genome evolution.

RT @RavMABAY@twitter.com: The doctor who operated on #TreeofLife shooter is a Jew. The shooter shouted anti-Semitic slurs at him even as he tended his wounds. The doctor said that he was proud to offer medical care to a human who was wounded. You want to know what it means to be a Jew? Here's your answer.
