So it is Written-Shall it be Done

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Responsibility_to_protect

138. Each individual State has the responsibility to protect its populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity. This responsibility entails the prevention of such crimes, including their incitement, through appropriate and necessary means. We accept that responsibility and will act in accordance with it. The international community should, as appropriate, encourage and help States to exercise this responsibility and support the United Nations in establishing an early warning capability.

139. The international community, through the United Nations, also has the responsibility to use appropriate diplomatic, humanitarian and other peaceful means, in accordance with Chapters VI and VIII of the Charter, to help protect populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity. In this context, we are prepared to take collective action, in a timely and decisive manner, through the Security Council, in accordance with the Charter, including Chapter VII, on a case-by-case basis and in cooperation with relevant regional organizations as appropriate, should peaceful means be inadequate and national authorities manifestly fail to protect their populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity. We stress the need for the General Assembly to continue consideration of the responsibility to protect populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity and its implications, bearing in mind the principles of the Charter and international law. We also intend to commit ourselves, as necessary and appropriate, to helping States build capacity to protect their populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity and to assisting those whis before crises and conflicts break out.

Burma: The ignored genocide

The world stood watching while Russian, Serbian, Chinese and Filipino forces and militias exercised their “Final Solution” to the “Muslim Problem.” In Europe, they finally woke up as a result of coverage by the global media and public opinion pressure. Thanks to strong US leadership, the holocaust was finally put to an end, and Muslims were allowed to have their own states and live in peace.

Stop the Genocide in Darfur

???????????????????

The ongoing genocide in Darfur, Sudan has already claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands of Darfur is and has displaced more than 2 million more. The genocide began in early 2003 when members of two rebel groups—the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) and the Sudan Liberation Army (SLA)—revolted against the Sudanese government in Khartoum alleging systematic neglect of the inhabitants of Darfur. The government responded by launching an assault against these two rebel groups. The response has been two-pronged, combining aerial bombing raids with a sustained ground assault. The ground offensive is carried out by Arab militias recruited from local tribes and armed by the government– collectively known as the janjaweed.

Is Sudan committing another genocide – against the Nuba people?

Almost two decades ago, as a British government official, I had the misfortune to witness the last genocide of the 20th century – in Rwanda in 1994. I also have the dubious distinction of experiencing the first genocide of the 21st century. That was in Darfur in 2004 and it unfolded while I served as the chief of the United Nations in Sudan. Earlier this month, I went back across the border into Sudan’s Nuba mountains to see for myself what history may come to judge as the second genocide of this century.

Truth-The Hemorrhage of Pigs!


I locked the Hemorrhage page at www.therevelationpainting.com requiring a password to see it. The reason is that religion is a touchy subject and I may sound harsh to some people and/or groups as I make my case regarding what Truth-The Hemorrhage of Pigs! is all about.

The second reason is that recently, a friend of mine was contacted by a government entity which cited them for “talking about the government”. I do not want to blacklist myself before I even get started. I know that this painting will grow tremendous controversy. It already is.

I will only write blogs about the mechanism of the bleed, the design and measurements, and the sketches regarding this section of the painting and forget about the “politics” behind it. In other words, discussing the art of it will be the priority until later on when the password protection is removed.

To remind you about the Hemorrhage section of the painting  Scene II GOD; it is where the brilliant, white light of God begins to bleed from the application of thermochromic pigments that when heated to approximately 88 degrees will turn from a red (slightly pink due to the saturation of pigment) to a clear.

The painting will require heated light sources to keep the red pigment at bay, then when the lights are out, the painting begins to bleed Truth-The Hemorrhage of Pigs!  When the lights are turned back on, the painting will return to the pristine, brilliant, white light of God once again.

Here is a general design of the effect, of course you will not see a change here, it is an illustration. I am working on learning to video certain things to make short youtube videos to place here on myspace and at www.therevelationpainting.com in anticipation of my June videos actually painting the painting.

 

  

   

The following are views of the Hemorrhage effect.  The first is when the pigment is cold (under 88 degrees) but the colder, the better but not freezing.  It arrives in various forms; a powder, a slurry, a paint or ink.  This medium was a slurry.  The area TEST is where I wanted to see the black thermochromic related to being covered by the red and their reactions.

The following pictures is the pigment heated with a blow dryer (for faster) response and true color.  It is important to apply one thin coat because the red is very hard to work with due to the remaining pigment when cooled.  In the painting (if you read the “EMERALD” blog, and God’s EMERALD rainbow, you will see the pink does not matter.

Actual changing times required are available by clicking on the photos here.. 
 

  

  

  

 

 

 This is a very important component of the painting.  Please see the GIVE/TAKE page to see how you can help keep this section of the painting alive!  The life span of the pigment on the painting is approximately 6 months where it will then require a “tune up”.  I realize that one day the effect will happen no more and hopefully “things” which brought it to this point are resolved in the world and it will not matter by then.
