Ever wonder why artists portraits are more realistic after the 1400s?

Realism and the photographic look became prevalent after that time period.

How?

That David Hockney video was pretty damn good. Amazing how using mirrors and lenses made the artwork more realistic. I laughed out loud on the academic excuse.

I did too. It's like all the other crap they teach people in school. Bullshit excuses to explain subjects or a watered down history without any social understanding. What a crock! How can anyone SEE the world without a decent history of where we came from.

 

So, in essence, the artists of yesteryear were tracing light reflections. I thought it was cool how they set up their little reflecting booths along with the posing of their portraits. Almost like they were magicians with their secret techniques to create life like images.

WHAT IS PLUS ULTRA?

PLUS ULTRA is a secret society.

Though written off by most as a wild conspiracy theory, they are very real, and they really did abandon us. Comprised of the greatest minds throughout history, PLUS ULTRA was founded by Nikola Tesla, Thomas Edison, Gustave Eiffel, and H.G. Wells in a legendary meeting at the top of the Eiffel Tower during the 1889 “Exposition Universelle” World’s Fair.

No Provision for the Crown - Reedy Creek Improvement District Story
 
One of the most perplexing problems facing Walt in his effort to build a community was the conflict between his desire to fully control the project and the rights of residents to vote. Disney explored a number of creative ways to deal with the governance issue. It was Florida attorney Paul Helliwell who was serving as lead legal counsel that first suggested that Disney create its own municipality. Walt was not so sure. In Project Future, Chad Emerson says, “Jules Stein, a friend who at the time was a lead executive of Universal Studios, had cautioned Walt against creating new cities as part of his Florida project. This caution resulted from trouble Stein had encountered after incorporating Universal City, a parcel of land the [Universal] Studios owned in the county outside the Los Angeles city limits.” You can see the Disney Burbank studio from the upper lot at Universal City.
 
However, Helliwell convinced Walt and Roy that creating their own municipality would give them the greatest control over the property. A municipality would allow for ways to limit the review of other agencies, therefore providing the greatest flexibility. It would allow them to control the utilities. In Married to the Mouse, Richard Fogelsong summed up a 1966 ERA report noting, “Both capitalism and democracy were problematic; each produced fragmentation of effort. The Disney solution was centralized administration—benign, paternalistic, based on expertise.”
 
When the issue of voting rights was raised, Helliwell assured the brothers that Florida law had already been tested. Marvin Davis said, “Walt’s thought was that in order to maintain the original philosophy of keeping this an experimental prototype, it would have to be something that was pretty much controlled by the company….This is something that we never really discuss very much publicly….In order to have the control that is necessary there, you would just about eliminate the possibility of having a voting community. Because the minute they start voting, then you lose control, and that’s the end of the possibility of experimental development.”
 
Walt and Roy agreed that the solution was to restrict voting rights to property owners. Using provisions provided under the Florida Drainage District Act, the landowners would elect a five-person Board of Supervisors. Each landowner would have one vote for every acre of land he owned above one-half acre. Since Disney was the sole property owner for much of the property, there would never be a conflict. Anybody who lived on the property would be leasing from Disney; therefore they would not have voting rights with regards to land use issues.
