Winnemucca petroglyphs and the Devils Postpile

Some of the Winnemucca petroglyphs resemble top geometric shapes of basalt columns at Devils Postpile National Monument.
Other petroglyphs look like Conifers and the Devils Postpile on side.
I can imagine the makers of these petroglyphs recording travels in the Sierra Nevada mountains.

Dark energy, and the Electromagnetic spectrum.

photon-time-space1

γ

Is the proposed dark energy, (71.4%) of  the known universe, composed of electromagnetic energy that has not yet interacted with other matter, and moving away from the originating sources? To illustrate one example, most of the photons of light emitted from our sun (a star), during it’s lifetime will not reach other matter to interact with. So the photons released will be moving throughout space indefinitely. Combined with all of the other electromagnetic sources of energy moving through the interstellar medium in the same manner with no interactions, is this  the dark energy in the universe?

Stanza from Auguries of Innocence,

To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

A robin redbreast in a cage
Puts all heaven in a rage.

The wild deer, wand’ring here and there,
Keeps the human soul from care.
The lamb misus’d breeds public strife,
And yet forgives the butcher’s knife.

The bat that flits at close of eve
Has left the brain that won’t believe.
The owl that calls upon the night
Speaks the unbeliever’s fright.

The caterpillar on the leaf
Repeats to thee thy mother’s grief.
Kill not the moth nor butterfly,
For the last judgement draweth nigh.

The poison of the honey bee
Is the artist’s jealousy.

The prince’s robes and beggar’s rags
Are toadstools on the miser’s bags.
A truth that’s told with bad intent
Beats all the lies you can invent.

It is right it should be so;
Man was made for joy and woe;
And when this we rightly know,
Thro’ the world we safely go.

Joy and woe are woven fine,
A clothing for the soul divine.
Under every grief and pine
Runs a joy with silken twine.

When gold and gems adorn the plow,
To peaceful arts shall envy bow.
A riddle, or the cricket’s cry,
Is to doubt a fit reply.

We are led to believe a lie
When we see not thro’ the eye,
Which was born in a night to perish in a night,
When the soul slept in beams of light.

God appears, and God is light,
To those poor souls who dwell in night;
But does a human form display
To those who dwell in realms of day.

William Blake
