Underneath it all...

Which of the arts or sciences is best suited to representing the entire feeling of life as it unfolds and evolves moment to moment? Who are the people that are successfully doing this? I'm less interested in the cold facts than I am in the musical notes, the patterns, the orchestration across space and time. So many brilliant people, so willing to be separated from the ocean, exiled in a tide pool, where they can lord over stagnant conditions.

Nature and consciousness do not want to be slowed down or caged, and our doing so can only ever give us a fraction of the information and none of the pulse. For now, I'm sticking with the arts. Music, film, painting, and photography. I'm curious about virtual reality, but so far it's manifestations are a little underwhelming. Who wants to work and pay taxes in a second life?
