episode 4 Canada this is CBS and now here's your host David Ross welcome to episode 4 this is going to be sort of like a test run at the new longer 30-minute format and if the new graphics up I've been working on them for a while just like a hobby doing the 3d graphics using blender I'm gonna show you some of that because I find it interesting I don't know if you will but it's it's 3d graphics I use blender which is free maybe I'll hop over right now and show you my blender setup for that but yeah it's a thirty minute to thirty minutes now so I can take my time and ramble a bit maybe I'll talk about I don't know what I'm going to talk about some plan I think I'm just doing this get my feet wet but let's go over to the desktop and see blender you can see here I've got the setup with a microphone and the mug and computer and the crucifix a couple of images about some images of the recent Popes here actually can show you a bit of nice 3d sphere setup which pretty cool zoom and I can show you this image here 360 degrees I got my little mouse pad there CBS about my recent Popes to show that I'm not a said of a contest of course we got st. Peter there I've got no other because they're very important to me pulling the keys to the Ark there's Our Lady of Perpetual Help this is all of course just 3d graphics there's a famous painting by Steven Lochner I think that's how you pronounce it there's nice little crucifix that I found these are all 3d models even the keyboard the mouse everything's baby models even the chair you can just find these things online for free and if you can't find it you can make it I found for example a generic mug for free I just slept on that my logo I built the obviously the keyboard mouse I got for free off the internet these 3d models but I got myself I built the most part it's not much of a an item to build very simple to build but a couple of things i built i built the table and of course i built this whole environment here not the HDR this is a church in Oland a really beautiful 14th century church were built in this the cathedral of saint john it was built in the 13th century burned down and they rebuilt it in the late 14th century and beautiful beautiful church in poland the cathedral st. John's Cathedral but what we're looking at here is sort of like a hallway and these walls actually I built these walls and it's basically an extrusion of the IIHS monogrammed fur that i use and i think there's a little easter egg here i think we have IH s up here on the ceiling not on the ceiling but on this decorative piece in the church and yeah it looks like an IHS there you see the little cherubim I don't know what this writing is I'm not sure what these what these images are here I'll probably do a tour here's a nice sculpture of a saint I'll probably do a tour a virtual tour st. John's Cathedral and the the name of the town in Poland where this is situated is Turin or thorn here's a little Easter egg I found here's a bottle and off it's a bottle of water or a bottle of alcohol I'm not sure but beautiful beautiful vaulted ceilings in this church what we're seeing is a lot of reflected light here from the stained glass there's there's stained glass on this wall over here but what we're encased in is a glass piece that I constructed I I just invented this sort of glass case in which the IHS logo is I'm going to take you over and show you some images now okay this is this is the early days when I was starting with blender back in 2018 I wanted to build a maze so I got this little silver ball I have an HDR which is a sort of a panoramic background for lighting you can see the trees and the sky reflected in the ball this is the maze that I started to build with a black rubber floor and white plastic laminate walls and I was gonna have the ball animated moving through this maze and that project didn't turn out cuz it was just a little bit too complicated but I was playing around with the walls different sizes turrets on the walls here are different materials that I was playing around with and those six different segments here I was gonna have different segments in my live show where I would just sort of break the show up into different themes so I was gonna have different materials for different balls that would pass through the maze in between between each segment is really overthinking everything at that time here we are when I first started building the IHS monogram and I put it at first I put it on a table there's a little silver ball there but it was fun trying to make the fabric it was a bit of a challenge I did apply some sort of ocean filter to the material this is a sort of a spooky dark scene I put some ghost lights within the IHS logo I was gonna do a sort of a nightmare scenario where scary demons and goblins were popping out around every corner as the camera moved its way with a spotlight and you know sort of moving around surreptitiously in the dark and then the music was gonna get triumphant and the lights would come on in the cathedral and you could see everything this is a top-down view I I nixed obviously all these fancy ideas I had about walking around in the dark with a spotlight it was a nice idea but it's just too involved but here's an outside view of this sort of cage unit that I built and you can see there are six sides to this exit dream exit hexagonal or whatever it is a structure that I built out of a sort of soap bubble treatment on glass I did that so you can see you know you could actually see that it was glass I applied sort of like a soap treatment to these glass panels and I cut out to you know inserted the balls I inserted the rods between the balls to give it some sort of structure and then I I decided to have these six windows on top you can see the letter M here in the letter A here if you look closely you can see little axe axles where I was gonna have these things rotating and the camera would fly through them and different each of the different six different segments of my live show but I've since abandoned that it's too complicated there's a different view of the same structure and there's just an early test shot I did you can see my mugs in a different position there there's a different shot to a different placement of my hopes the recent Popes I'm always harping on how important it is as a Catholic to submit lovingly and respectfully to the Living Magisterium so very fond of the recent Pope's I can make a point of having them present here's just a still shot but if we go over to blender now I wanted to sort of show you how this works I can in the animation you can see I don't get too detailed about it but you can see there's a lot of different controls we have this is my camera here in a yellow box and I can actually move around if I do ctrl F and here shift F I can fly around and why is it okay so thanks now that's been a different mold let's go over and look at different okay nice to be bugging out not save I'm just gonna reopen that cuz it crashed for whatever reason blender it's free software it's excellent though it starts out with a little cube here but I'll just open the file that I had Here I am in I'm in fly mode and we can sort of fly around this is my initial starting point in the scene and then I was gonna do that scary thing where we drive around through the maze and I beat all the wings and events coming out but I can also turn off the gravity I can positions where I am I can switch to a different view which is more beautiful but I don't see the controls for that right now but it's not rendering as it would as it would finally render but if I were to hit f12 some of the 3d graphics work and it takes a long time to render these 3d graphics to make a video you need to export the images one by one that takes a long time and then you can actually use blender to create a video and do video editing so here's a view of what I was working on last week when I put together the new intro video you can see I can just scan through it but magenta screen which operates like a green so it's just like any video editor but it's free and it's very easy to use lots of there's lots of help online and so I've had a lot of fun doing that and at the end at the end of this 30 minute vlog you're gonna see another segment of video which I inserted at the tail end and it's the magenta screen that's allowing me to see other stuff as otherwise it's on the top layer of my broadcast system so I'm just scrolling through the 30 minutes now I'm going to show you at the very end another set of music and different image sequences that I outputted from blender and then I sequence them here and created the video so that that's just a little bit of technical background show you how that works and this is a 3d view the nice thing with creating a panoramic 3d 360 image like this is you can actually reduce it to a sphere it looks like looks like a sort of a glass bowl with an image in it or on it zoom in and there's a mold where you can go to a default position and rotate slowly so I'm thinking I might in the future I might use this to set up a space much like the medieval scholastic philosophers imagined in their minds and some of them sketched out on paper but with this technology we can go a lot further because we can actually have spaces like mnemonic spaces and in the Middle Ages this was sort of the way that they would map out memory complex memories whether it had to do with philosophy or theology or Natural Science anything you can map it out to a 3d space and you can have a place for that memory these different loci so it's a technique in the Middle Ages for memorization how to access information you place it in a 2d space or a 3d space but what I'm thinking of doing is using it as an apologetics tool I can have a world a 3d world that I create using this powerful free software blender and I can actually go ahead and zoom in on a piece of information that corresponds with someone's location on a diagnostic map because I'm very fond of course of categorizing people's world views why why do I do that because I want people to think about their world view I want them to escape from their false worldview obviously I want everyone to take a step in the right direction to move closer to the truth and by having a sort of diagnostic map in a 3d space like this of course it would be radically different from this but this is just an example of a 3d space that we can move around I could be having a conversation with someone and I could have a piece of information or a diagnostic map where their position on freewill for example would be over here and then if in the course of the discussion we have some sort of modification we could shift over to the adjacent implication and so on and so forth I mean this is this image obviously it doesn't correspond with what I'm talking about it's just an idea but when I was looking at this this powerful software and how easy it is to create it takes time to create this took a lot of time to create but it's easy to set it up it just you need computational power to crank out the high-quality graphics so it does take time but the conceptually it's very easy to lay out the 3d space you know like I just got this microphone for free off the internet I chose my surfaces I chose my colors I chose the scale the rotation I slapped it on the table the table is simply an extruded plane and that plane is going right through the walls so this is very easy to slap together a scene like this so conceptually it's very easy to slip something this together and I think it'd be very useful as a learning tool and in conversations where we're always going over the same terrain over and over again if I'm talking with an atheist I'm talking with an on a non-christian if I'm talking with a non Catholic Christian there's so many areas where apologetics has been well established and yet we're reinventing the wheel over and over and over again so I want to map it out and I want to have a world where we can move in move out zoom in zoom out and pan around and make progress in a very visual way and I'm excited about this idea I'll have to play with it I'll have to think about it and I'll have to come up with some sort of a schema that's the basic idea of the 3d graphics I'm really excited about it and like I said I see potential for Catholic apologetics and even for Christian apologetics and even for apologetics generally with monotheism bringing atheists out of their atheism and into monotheism so what I'm gonna do now since I have the time I've given myself an extra 10 15 minutes here what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna go ahead and finish what I started in a couple of these vlogs and so that's going to involve going back to my Kindle a lot of you might find this boring but I'm doing it for posterity of doing it for myself so that I can know what books I have which books I'm excited to read and eventually I'd like to go through some of the comments because the books that I have read I've got a lot of comments not comments excuse me highlights highlights where I've highlighted the pertinent let's just go jump down to four last thing so go to book on Hell a book on purgatory and a book on deathbed conversions haven't read any of them I know I have read the death vet deathbed conversions I didn't find it that fascinating but it was okay had a couple of people in there and had Oscar Wilde I'm a big big fan of Oscar Wilde I like the fact that he was a bad boy you know bisexual or whatever and he turned his life around he came back to his wife and he apologized and he he sought forgiveness and he was contrite and he died a good Catholic I'm I'm a firm believer that that he was truly contrite at the end of his life and that his deathbed conversion was was real I bought the complete works of of Oscar Wilde I think after having read this book now we're getting into some really meaty and juicy stuff on my Kindle here the documents of Vatican 2 this translation isn't the more common translation it's Walter M Abbott SJ he's a Jesuit I've you know I've heard pros and cons of the different translations and from everything I read I just went with this one I mean I do happen to like the Jesuits I know they're controversial but I do like the Jesuits I don't like the rebellious wolves in sheep's clothing I'm not going to name any names but I do like the Jesuits in general I love st. Ignatius of Loyola for example but a wonderful book I find the translation good but I haven't read the other translations so I can't compare but an excellent excellent set of 16 documents all 16 and their commentary there's commentary by the author obviously where there are commentaries by sort of some of the people that were invited to vatican ii like protestants and i bodies and stuff like that so well worth the read i've got a lot of highlights i'd like to go through with you but right now I'm just going to plow through what I've got on my Kindle so here's a book called tumultuous times it pretty much an anti Vatican 2 book but I wanted to get that you know if that side of the story a read I think I started to read it and I got bored and I moved on path like priests falsely accused I don't know why I'd this under vatican ii but i guess it's because the abuse scandals seem to follow after vatican ii probably a connection because satan was all riled up after their the council smoked of satan famously entered the church and a lot of abuse cases but I think it's getting under control I'm not sure about that but I've heard things yeah so very touching reading about priests who have allegedly been falsely accused of course you never know right you never know what's we'll find out at so I just got it's got a live chat from Lord Mozart 308 he says not watching the game question mark no I'm not watching the game no I'm not watching again I am not even sure what the game is it might be American football life I was just that uh I was out tonight and I saw American football blasting on that large screen TVs but no I'm not interested in in the sports thanks for asking though Lord Merton Lord Mozart 308 thanks for thanks for watching so moving on here we've got Vatican 2 what happened at Vatican 2 John W O'Malley SJ and other Jesuit okay I did read that I'll have to look through my highlights to see what what I highlighted in that I can't recall the Pope the council and the Mass Games liquidus I'm not sure if I heard that one yet a concise guide to the documents of Vatican - yes I have read that I'll have to go through the highlights on it it was good history of the first Council of nice okay I probably bought that just to sort of get a compare and contrast of a well-respected council with a controversial Council of attica - so to compare sort of the history of well established and well viewed council I haven't read it yet though great heresies Hiller Belloc not sure why about that might be interesting might hoppy not sure mass revision how the liturgy is changing and what it means for you Jimmy akin these are always very light reads so if I'm Jimmy Jimmy I tend to be a very light read usually but usually pretty solid I find now this is my last category and it is writings by the Saints so we've got the life and revelations of Saint Gertrude the great I haven't read yet I'm excited to read it I do pray the Saint Gertrude prayer multiple times per day so that's probably why about that francis of assisi in his own words this one really blew me away I was fascinated reading this one I read it maybe six months ago yeah I was quite shocked with his radical approach to poverty it's it sounded like I was reading a Protestant when I was reading Francis of Assisi I'll be honest with you it sounded very Protestant mmm and I've since you know I've since come to know and love the Franciscan school in terms of philosophy and you know bond a bond sure and different people in that you know blessed John Duns Scotus that Franciscan school is very interesting I find it very interesting philosophically and of course theologically and the absolute primacy of Jesus Christ is the key notion theologically and philosophically that I that I'm attracted to and that's I think that's one of the highlights of I'm no expert obviously but that's something that stands out to me the absolute primacy of Christ and yeah I was very shocked by his radical poverty and his sort of a lone-wolf approach to Christianity but very interesting shocking but interesting very few writings actually that we have is survive of saint francis of assisi but definitely worth the read here we have something by Saint Brigid of Sweden the prophesies and revelations haven't read it yet the seven capital sins everything I've read by Fulton sheen a blessed bulletin machine I've really enjoyed I enjoyed listening to him I'd watch in him I liked his face I liked his gestures I liked his theatrical presentation I liked everything about him I've heard very few negative things about bolting machine I have heard a couple things but nothing worth mentioning just little bubbles about his character but yeah I think he will be canonized unfortunate what's happening with his body but we'll see what happens play out and gods in control the life of Christ Fulton J Sheen I don't worry about two versions of that not sure if I did buy these if they were not free they were probably 99 cents a dollar 99 something like that Treaty a treatise on God John Duns Scotus definitely have to read that it's intimidating though because it's thick reading he's called the subtle doctor for a reason I've got to start burning through this because my and my time is gonna run out here Francis DeSales whoops like the complete writings of Francis DeSales on a huge fan of st. Francis DeSales love the love of the man very moved by him I've read a couple things by him it was I read the sign of the Cross for example I've read introduction to the devout life or whatever it's called something like that very very impressed by that Saint very impressed pope john paul ii theology of the body this is interesting I'd like to read that sometime I have to I have to make a confession I don't enjoy reading st. john paul ii I never have I've always felt like it's too modern too contemporary too academic I don't like your style I I love him because he's a saint I love him because he's made in the image and likeness of God he's a human being I have to love him but I haven't enjoyed his writing so that's just a little mini confession get that off my chest but I will read they feel that you have the body think it's important and what I know about the theology of the body I do agree with Nurik a path of salvation analysis okay no idea what that is why I bought it it looks interesting and I say in aid of a grammar of a cent John Henry Newman definitely want to read that I was listening to a lecture series that mentioned it that's why I bought it haven't read it yet just burning through I've got a lot of books here Gregory of Nurik st. ignatius of loyola the Spiritual Exercises the red parts of that Alphonsus Liguori how to converse with God can't wait to read that another Saint Alphonsus Liguori book another one I've got you know several here mmm obviously I'm a big fan read a couple of his things my favorite was the glories the letters of Saint Jerome I bought that because of my BFF showed up to you Matthew if you're listening to this you're my BFF and I commentary on the works of st. bonaventure another franciscan look forward to reading that although he's not that enjoyable to read after me or st. Gertrude again I've got so many books are can I can't get through them st. Joe's is crevasse Josemaria Escriva Opus Dei treatise on purgatory I've got Sam Lloyd and well for of course I read that and a couple times secret of the Rosary amazing more Alphonsus Liguori dark night of the soul I did not enjoy that they jonatha cross ladder of divine ascent this I bought because of the listening brothers if you listening to this is a shout-out to you I'm going to read that look forward to your podcast which is going to be all about this and book of meditations in prayers this is one of my favorite all-time favorites st. Anselm of Canterbury you it's a must read you've got to read it and his meditations and prayers are so touching so moving in john bosco of Mr Bond avant to have got a lot of uh no monetary well on consolations of philosophy by boethius never read it sounds very poetic and touching not a lot of talk about God in it but a little bit and of course on brace and free will Santa gist and I've got got the complete works of st. Augusta so let me logic good Thomas Aquinas lots thanks for being with me sorry ran out of time but we'll talk soon god bless for as little as $1 Vermont we can support a terrible mission of CBS which has already enrolled hundreds of guests and patrons and their immediate families in the Scalabrine League of the millinery fathers of st.
