Alan Asangan Binstock, longtime Integral Yogi and retired NASA architect, is also known as the “sculptor of light.” His sculptures adorn museums and major buildings around the country. He and his wife Karuna live in a home in Yogaville designed by Asangan. After 9/11, he was inspired to create this sculpture. He shared this: “I made this the week after the twin towers came down. I was deeply impacted by the days events. Going to work at NASA Goddard that day, I said good morning to the rather old, out of shape, gate guard. I witnessed the event with co-workers on a TV as we wondered if we were under attack. The center was evacuated shortly after. The gate guards had changed—gone was the old gate guard, and in his place: all young marines with flack jackets and automatic weapons. #NeverForget
