Writes as 'aegian' in FT online
United Kingdom
Recently 'aegian of the FT', who is Mrs a*, was honoured by 'hard copy' publication of several comments originally published online under articles in the FT.

These appear in Before The Collapse by Cathal Haughian. .

This book gathers together the informally expressed thoughts of those who can clearly see the need for change in the corporate driven, agnostic, capitalist, supposedly democratic societies of this world. This need is set to become increasingly urgent in the coming three decades; which is not all that long.

We are passionate artists and art lovers with wide ranging tastes and interests. Our long range project is the creation of 'aegian' as an aesthetic hermaphrodite, trying to express the many facets of their being. It has since emerged that we are a couple with four grown up children each of whom has contributed to this joint enterprise

While his better half prefers to remain mysterious and spends most of her time writing our journal entries, Mr A admits to having a London degree in Botany & Zoology and owning a succession of film and digital cameras. I am the man behind the lens, so there may not be many images of me submitted. We love beauty and I search for it amongst the mundane backgrounds of everyday reality as well as at fabulous gardens like the ones seen in some gallery pictures. We correspond with the Guardian as well as the Financial Times.

There will be no puckish, looped video 'web cam'; no 'fake' ID. If you want to see picture's, then this
The Revented Intagliated Sichultian Lededje Y'breq by aegiandyad is Mrs a*. This is a portrait after the manner of the old masters Sexton Blake Old Master Portrait, A Lady In Black by aegiandyad and this Sitting In An English Garden Waiting For The Sun by aegiandyad was recently taken, straight from the camera.

Mr a*s portraits are vanishingly rare. Here is one mocked up from an old frame of 'film' Yesteryear's Spy Under The Magnolia, Watercolour by aegiandyad, and a much more recently taken but wildly over processed one Yesterday's Spy, A Rare Portrait Of Mr A* by aegiandyad "Now, my name isn't Harry, but names change so often in this business that I couldn't be sure there hadn't been a time when it might have been." [the REAL 'Harry Palmer'; anonymous, insolent, insubordunate spy from Burnley, as found in The IPCRESS File by Len Deighton; Penguin Books 1962]

Perhaps most of us object when politicians and others in charge say that they are religious. WE all know how phoney they sound and wonder why they try to fool us when their policies show abundantly that most of them only care for the rich and themselves. But where do we stand on the eve of 2016? As far as we know there are two main ideas which are important to help us understand who we are and why we are here. Most secular people today are aware of Darwinism as an explanation of where we came from. Darwinism is an important theory which has suffered the misfortune of being turned into a doctrine by those who have espoused it for social reasons without fully understanding it. It has also been linked to the idea that there is no creator. Nothing in today's knowledge can prove the existence or non existence of God. The Bible too has been used to prove things that it was not intended to, being a record written by humans of the deepest intuitions of one people as being the inspired word of God concerning their origin and destiny. The closest that comes to being demonstratively true is in the New Testament. But like Darwinism that too has been used as a tool for oppression. 

Perhaps where we stand is to contiune thinking and exploring. Science and human intuition will help us advance through the coming unknown. By fusing the best of both traditions we come to understand that the universe is a mysterious entity, perhaps controlled by a spirit whose nature we can only guess at. That spirit used a non interventionist means of creating the universe, which is Darwinism. To the best of our knowledge our earth has gone through three and a half billion years of violent evolution to make it the livable place we enjoy. If we take Christ's words seriously we must continue His mission by learning as much as we can about our origins and where we are going and to use His compassion towards all creatures as our emotional guide.

Let's hope that the world's politicans and powerful men might learn this lesson.

aegiandyad 5 minutes ago Apparently we have a fan in common called Undead-Academy Happy Birthday rsiphotography by Undead-Academy This is the first thing you see when you search dA for rsiphotography!
Of course, such professional grade manipulations would be at the edge of my skills limit. When three or four family members work together we can produce images like this: She Entered A Chalk Drawn Door by aegiandyad .
