Truth and Beauty: found at last!

Those visitors who have paid any attention
to the sub-headline on this home page
may have wondered about my
search for "Truth and Beauty" in this game.
(Many, if not most, pool players seek money
or domination, or even social success)

Here's an example of what I had in mind:

Got it?

Makes me curious about that pool book titled, "Painting on Green Canvas". I might buy it.

I feel similar. I am sometimes entranced by pool "magic" even though I know it can all be explained by physics.

I might suggest the DVDs from Animusic.com. One of my favorite videos is still "Pipe Dream". A short clip is at http://animusic.com/popups/clip-pipe-wm.html

Thank you for mentioning the book. I just now ordered one of the last 4 copies from Amazon.com.

Got the Animusic DVD too. For gifts for my kids (and one for me).

Merry Christmas!

I got both DVDs from Animusic.com. Each has some good videos and some so-so videos. Use Surround Sound for these 2 disks if you can.

I think disk #1 has the original Pipe Dream. You can hear air flowing through the tubes. You can see dents on the wall from the balls. (Programmer explains, "It took awhile to get things working correctly".) LOL.
