How Artistic Brains Differ


Chinese charater for art

"Art is a lie that makes us realize truth."

Pablo Picasso




Blade Runner - The Aquarelle Edition


"Artist, you are an adept:

Art is the great mystery and,

if your effort results in a masterpiece,

a ray of the divine will descend as on an altar.


Artist, you are a king:

Art is the true empire,

if your hand draws a perfect line,

the Cherubim themselves will descend to revel in their reflection.


Spiritual design, a line of the soul, form of understanding,

you make our dreams incarnate.


Artist, you are a mage:

Art is the great mystery,

it only proves our immortality."


Joséphin Péladan

"Every work of art is an uncommitted crime."

Theodor Adorno



Art reflects the creative immortality of the individual.

33,000 BC

Abstract visual imagery is being painted on rocks, skins, faces and clothes.

1500

Raphael, Michelangelo, and Leonardo da Vinci make technical breakthroughs in perspective.

"Perspective painting records objects as they look, at a moment in time, thereby implicitly subordinating reality to the human observer and affirming the fundamental dualism of separation of self from the natural world.

The ambition was to make representation real, the same ambition that lives on in the latest version of the trap for immortality: the software simulation of consciousness in a virtual reality world. We now live almost wholly in a manufactured reality, a world of images, but nothing has actually changed." - Charles Eisenstein

"Dictatorships did not succeed in frightening artists to death, nor has democracy done them in altogether, although some observers consider democracy to be by far the greater threat."

Saul Bellow

The Accidental Color That Redirected Human Expression


"Genius has been the servant of tyranny and art has advertised the merits of the local cult.

Time, as it passes, separates the good art from the bad metaphysics.

Can we learn to make this separation, not after the event, but while it is actually taking place?

That is the question." - Aldous Huxley



Art defined herein:


human creativity

aesthetic reenactment of nature

superior skill attained by study, practice and observation

the conscious production or arrangement of sounds, colors, forms, movements, or other elements in a manner that affects the sense of beauty in an attempt to lift the human spirit into ascension.



Modern art was CIA 'weapon'

"In art as in politics the minority rules, but it can rule only by going out to meet the public on its own ground, by understanding the anatomy of public opinion and utilizing it." - Edward Bernays, Propaganda

"The boundless free flow of creative expression is what keeps us physically and mentally supple, as a child.

When we attempt to control play, limit it, mortgage it to the acceptable and safe, then the bounds of that safety project themselves onto body and mind, subjecting both to a severely limited range of motion that hardens over time.

Play does not require willpower to stay focused and overcome natural desires; it is natural desire manifest.

When we play, we are willing to try things without guarantee of their eventual usefulness or value; yet paradoxically, it is precisely when we let go of such motivations that we produce the things of greatest use.

Because the creativity of play is spontaneous, unbidden, and impervious to any rote formulization, we must consider that it comes from a source beyond ourselves." - Charles Eisenstein

Ego imagines risky, fresh ideas.

Self-doubt hammers the irony into a workable form.

unique library index

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world central banking system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought. All factual information presented on this web site is believed to be true and accurate and is presented as originally presented in print media which may or may not have originally presented the facts truthfully.
