Look at a rainbow


Is it really there? Here appears the nature of light, which under certain circumstances splits into arcs of colours arranged as a spectral continuum. Being ephemeral, it has come to represent the problematic idea of peace in our time. Owen Barfield starts his treatise 'Saving the Appearances', with a discussion about a rainbow. The voice of Amadeus Boden is taken from his 'Brief Outline' YouTube video series, as is a clear copy of Akira Kurosawa's 'Dreams' - the American film, so desired by Steven Spielberg and Francis Ford Coppola, that be made by the master. It is a keen, almost desperate, exploration in that zone between perception and dream
