The Pyramid has nothing to do with those edifices of Egypt, except in the only way that matters. It reveals nature's sublime psychoactive force, associated with the sphinx, the ineffable influence that undoubtedly moved the ancients to invent religion and build such monuments to immortality.
The art historian, Sir Kenneth Clarke, in his TV series: "Civilization", said: "All art is in one way or another about the search for God." Perhaps because I was brought up as an atheist, but had artistic aspirations, I decided to test that idea at the first opportunity. In the process, via the systems logic of the triptych, I discovered this non-human language, confirming the character and mission of the "divine" force of nature you can think of as timelessness.
The project emerged from my experience of meaningful coincidences. After a period of tuning-in, their guidance led me to devise this simple mathematical system to combine an ancient binary coded data set with a modern arrangement taken from a twentieth century translation of the I Ching, by Richard Wilhelm. The book is the world's oldest in constant use, dating from around 1000 BC. My process created an interference pattern, where messianic meaning is evident throughout and most clearly exposed in the central imagery of the Pyramid, where the first and last letters of the alphabet are overflown by a butterfly.
No individual or group could have contrived such messianic symbolism and if the materialist world vision is correct, it shouldn't exist. The revelation then, offers proof mathematical of the abstract intelligence you might be shocked to learn is the very real foundation of life and everything. His force is active 24/7, whether or not we're aware of it. The problem is none of us are taught to see it, indeed organised religion has always muddied such perception. As a result, civilization has been nudged along unconsciously to the point where only now are we waking up to the consequence of our insouciance.
Just as the bright words here link to pictures and deeper definition, great art reveals a kind of beauty from beyond appearances. Pyramid Art reveals it through a verifiable systems approach, following directions provided by the Jungian observational phenomenon known as synchronicity. Such perception will occur at some point in every life, when it challenges our materialist paradigm. Our "reasonable" reflex then is to dismiss its guiding meaning as a mirage. But what if we were to adopt the holistic paradigm and consider synchronicity as feedback from the spirit of the universe?
Such "spiritualist" guidance need not be so challenging, because you can now play along on a daily basis by joining me as a co-artist at Papolona.guru. You see I've found a way of using the quantum field to tune-in your intuition and provide synchronicity on demand as a source of guidance and potential synergy. The pictorial results will be produced robotically, so no art skill per se is needed. What really matters is the development of the intuitive reflex.
Do you agree that development of real-time partnership with nature is the only way to save ourselves and this finite planet from our inflating numbers and growing needs? Such a miracle unfortunately, seems unlikely to occur without some kind of shake-up. Nevertheless, since I've proven it's possible, give yourself the benefit of the doubt and come along with me for the ride of your life, where this language of synergy, discovered through feedback with the hidden dimension you may think of as timelessness becomes key to the meaning and purpose of it all.
Synchronicity overtook me one night at the age of twenty seven, with hundreds of events on some days thereafter. That's how I know it gives access to nature's guiding potential, to which we are normally blind. Such a "normal" lack of discernment is exemplified by what neuroscientists refer to as "The Hard Problem," the phrase they use to characterise their failure to explain how the mind works. On the other hand, the synergistically receptive mind, thanks to the Pyramid, can now be identified as the area to develop, so as to tune-in to nature's Great Spirit. But first, we must drop cherished assumptions about free will. That puts the cat among the pigeons, because it's used to justify our human rights, law and the democratic, governmental system.
To emphasise the need for this revolution of consciousness, here's a quote from Albert Einstein, the quintessential genius: "The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind a faithful servant, but we've created a society honouring the servant that forgets the gift.” Ergo, to cure ourselves of the ongoing amnesia, we need to re-jig our honourable behaviour in regard to the giver: mother nature. In other words, we should focus attention on our failure so far, to develop working synergy with the source of our own creativity. That also means the solution lies within the purview of fine-art.
My tuning-in process took me on an artistic journey from London to São Paulo Brazil and on to Canada, where I married into the Trivial Pursuit clan. There it became clear something pernicious was in progress, so I returned to Brazil, then came back to Europe and ended up living in France. The gold header button tells how the Pyramid was discovered on that journey.
The basics are simple: Guidance appeared when I asked questions in my head and they were answered symbolically on the fly by coincidences appearing as meaningful metaphors, usually in my immediate circumstances and through a variety of means. This process equates to the abiding religious experience referred to in the Bible: "Ask and ye shall receive". But I was brought up as an atheist, so these functional dynamics came as a shock, a very impressive and fascinating shock. The effect was to develop my devotion to building the synergy partnership with timelessness clear of traditional religious distortions.
Whether or not you are religious, your spiritual vision, the one you consolidate through life's twists and turns, defines your moral identity. That's all we can ever really own. The ultimate development of art; the search for a spiritual kind of gold if you will, must ultimately become synergised with the immortal power of the universe to find that treasure. Pyramid Art, for the first time ever, offers proof of principle for the validity of such a personal quest, through the development of a disregarded skill set... and by the way, its the one where the female of the species should have a head start.
In a nutshell the Pyramid reveals how beauty, rather than being in the "eye" of the beholder, is actually a cosmic force, an ancestral intelligence that operates from the unconscious, from where it colours our logic, sparks ideas and moods, our desires and perceptions, which pull at our strings in real life with enchantment in dreams and weirdness in synchronicity, déjà vu, etc. This means our appreciation of underlying beauty, through positive feedback, or synchronicity, must develop into creative partnership, or else what's the point?
So, lets take a closer look at the Pyramid as the positive proof of this principle: The first thing to understand is it's a systems piece in three parts, like a medieval church triptych. Essentially this answers the big question Carl Jung posed mankind after the horror of WWII: Are we related to an infinite being or not? Graphically it confirms how feedback with cosmic beauty possesses psychoactive force throughout history and this is something we can learn to steer once we recognise our individual connection, by applying the butterfly effect. Papolona is the Catalan word for butterfly.
This language would be the catalyst to initiate a real-time relationship with the sublime, capable of teaching our default, sorcerer's apprentice mentality a new and remedial trick. The idea is to apply something like a software patch, by building synergy with nature into our creative thinking.
The Pyramid emerged from my pioneering observation technique, which informs through the effect we all get on occasion and Carl Jung named synchronicity. It verifies my claim to having achieved synergy with space-time because the art reveals the persona of the Great Spirit through its original, "hieroglyphic" imagery. In technical terms such meaning can only belong to a holistic mind the unconscious is already part of, but few of us are properly tuned-in to.
How can I be so sure?
To begin with, the central imagery of the Pyramid consists of the A and Z monogram, overflown by a butterfly (Papolona). That's remarkably descriptive and messianic, given these images are as likely as a room full of monkeys dancing on typewriters is to produce the complete works of Shakespeare. You see, they're built merely as a systematic combination of two alternative arrangements of a binary coded data set. By using a mandala structure their combination produces an interference pattern. One of the binary code sequences used is relatively modern, the other is decidedly ancient. You can be sure then, the meaning exposed belongs not to man, but to a timeless entity, hidden within us and the fabric of space-time, which I observed and took instruction from. The process of tuning-in took some years and ultimately led to my creation of the Jewel Mandala. The structure acts like graph paper where the symbols of the Pyramid are plotted using this mathematical system so simple a five year old can understand it.
The meaning of the Pyramid reflects the channelling quality of my observational process, where I teamed up with timelessness. My mission is to expose the universal foundation of beauty so you can do that for yourself. Humanity needs to relate to this abstract being, this ancestor of life and everything. It's likely too late to avert the global disaster on our horizon, but in the end the question is: are we astute enough as a species to grasp where we went wrong and adapt? I personally doubt it. Egotistical reason has gotten us into the mess we're in. It cannot get us out unaided, because it's blind to the unconscious roots of our ideas. That's almost an insurmountable problem. Science does not acknowledge the timeless dimension, nor that it's the source of intelligence. Sensitisation is needed to open our perception. It would seem only a work of art can do that... but there's still the mental block to overcome. This will help: DUNCES LOSE.
We all experience synchronicity occasionally, along with other anomalies of awareness. The discovery of the Pyramid proves these effects steer us to synergy with space-time, if we use them as signposts.
The very existence of the Pyramid begs two questions: Why do the psychological effects I mentioned surface in everyone from time to time? and... How can you know if the guidance I claim to have pursued is real or not, where you encounter the same?
To answer, you need to be aware why this art has such monumental significance, so bare with me now while I jump to a seemingly unconnected area of science.
Here's the thing: Free will is not what the conscious ego thinks it is. Consider the mind effects of parapraxis and déjà vu and you'll understand. On top of that, while evidence to the contrary stares us in the face, the whole "rational system" supporting the concept of free will is blinkered and we refuse to acknowledge this, simply because convention sees nothing wrong. But in failing to value a transcendental light glimpsed through this tangled thicket, we've shut off our ability to develop conscious synergy with nature... the paradigm shift that could save us from ourselves. Modern science has its knickers in such a twist on this issue; it must close your mind, by proposing a fantasy concept: The Multiverse. This preposterous doctrine first appeared in Hugh Everett's graduate thesis, back in 1954. It was then summarily bolted on to the scientific cannon to explain away the Anthropic Principle; the observed fact our universe is finely tuned to produce life and reasoning intelligence, such as ours.
At the time, the ethically truthful, but vehemently godless foundation of scientific thinking, having remained untested, had been safe from attack since the age of reason by virtue of its evidence based knowledge gathering system. So far so good from a humanistic standpoint, but in the mid-nineteen-fifties the status quo was challenged by Fred Hoyle. He was the theoretical astrophysicist who discovered the fusion process, creating carbon within stars, is so finely tuned and so unlikely, it could not be the product of mere chance organisation, so carbon based life, such as ours and indeed, the entire universe, must have been designed by a cosmic intellect, i.e. God.
The multiverse concept was a way for cosmological science to "trump" that idea. However, its adoption was simply a perverse gamble, motivated by entrenched atheism and not by any proven fact, since evidence to support the theory is impossible to acquire. Worse still, it has put the future of life here at risk. We have disturbed the balance of the planet so comprehensively because the tactic worked, Hoyle was ignored and the hegemony of scientific godlessness was maintained. It's a big deal because our world vision continues to be corrupted by this institutionalised deceit.
The multiverse concept apparently defines the useful limits of reason, which to promote scientific logic/prejudice, has decided ours is just one of an infinite number of universes, whose laws are determined by chance. Remember, this is a doctrine preferred by the arbiters of scientific truth, so they can maintain, despite evidence to the contrary, our universe obeys laws set at random and not by a supreme being. This way the need to investigate him can "legitimately" be sidestepped.
Logic also dictates if ours is a randomly arranged universe, only meaningless shapes would result from my pattern making system. Remember, I followed synchronicity (chance events) as signposts to create the Pyramid. According to conventional wisdom then, no revelation concerning a creative force at the heart of reality would be likely to emerge from my process, yet that's precisely what happened. It's obvious in the central imagery of the Pyramid and occurs throughout this language, becoming more and more evident, the more one studies it. You'll notice, all the corners: an anchor, a fisherman and the letter "b" for "being," are symbols for Christ, and the whole sequence tells of a mythic path towards synergy, in a way you could follow.
So, what can be going on?
The fact my creative process centred on synchronicity as the expression of my feedback with space-time is key. Conscious feedback of this kind implies an unconscious intelligence underlying reality exists to feedback with, in order to find the working synergy I claim.
What if chance only appears to be random because conventional wisdom is blind to its pattern? What if that pattern is the only thing that can save us from ourselves by activating the redeeming quality of the mind, accessible to intuition; the path to synergy with nature at the timeless level?
The Pyramid would be an iconic statement by the universal abstract, as something to be studied at length, but where can we focus our attention to discover guidance in our day to day, without complicating life too much? Isn't there an easier way to contact the divine?
Physics says the whole universe is a quantum phenomenon. Experiments have confirmed, the quantum field, the connected void within atoms, which includes the void between the stars and galaxies of the entire universe, presents a non-local force involved in quantum entanglement, a phenomenon that defies relativity and our normal experience of time. We also know that force is psychoactive because the results of experiments that reveal it, hinge on the intentions of the scientists who carry them out. It implies this non-local force never needs to travel anywhere, because it acts everywhere simultaneously and it influences us unconsciously. Essentially it's a timeless dimension we are unaware of in real life... but come to think of it, sometimes it does break through to consciousness and it would naturally be responsible for all our creative functions.
My Pyramid and the meaning it reveals, relied on tuning-in to timelessness. It's the proof we are capable of waking up to His ubiquitous dimension and lifting humanity out of the crisis we're in, by developing a natural kind of genius.
The very existence of meaning expressed through Pyramid Art, given its mathematical structure, suggests there must be a cosmic plan we can tune-in to because it has to do with an unconscious force controlling the way the mind works. In that context the AZ symbol in the central imagery of the Pyramid suggests the source, its goal and something like a treasure map to navigate the labyrinth of existence. It's also an update to the Biblical Alpha & Omega, beginning and end of the ancient Greek alphabet. That was the symbol early Christianity used to represent the liberator, or messiah. Above the monogram is a butterfly in flight, referring to metamorphosis, liberation and the butterfly effect of timeless beauty, active as a living beast. The image, by the way, is drawn like a signature, in one continuous line, changing direction just four times. That alone is a graphic indicator of intelligence, but when the Pyramid is revolved through 90 degrees the direction of the butterfly changes 180 degrees. This I interpret as a promise from God, saying something like: Join Me in conscious partnership and I will double your creative power.
The quantum field makes up more than 99.99% of the volume of physical matter here on Earth, including our brain matter, from where its force must continually influence our thoughts, whether we realise it or not. The ego suppresses it, whereas responding to those clues, amplifies the creative force of mind, to produce a natural kind of genius .
Planet Earth is in a perilous situation and we need help from somewhere now because "expert" thinking is not immune to the complacent corruption infecting all established elites; the people and systems that have gotten us into our current mess.
Synchronicity had become the dominant feature of my awareness by the age of twenty eight, so I was positioned to use it as an observation technique to direct my artistic enquiry into timelessness when I moved from London to São Paulo Brazil. This move eventually came to fruition through a creative episode, bracketed by global synchronicity in 1987: The Great October storm and Black Monday, just a few days later. That's when the Pyramid was revealed as an interference pattern between two binary hexagram codes found in a western, twentieth century translation of the ancient Chinese I Ching
The meaning found in the Pyramid is proof mathematical of a timeless intellect, working towards something through the evolution of ages here on Earth. His creative force emanates from both within and beyond life, where we also find the quantum field. His force of mind, when tuned-in to, would then link all creativity back to the immortal Yang, conditioning our mortal Yin. So, here's a question to consider:
Would deliberate action in synergy with timelessness, bestow merit on its actors for eternity? It stands to reason it would, and the opposite must also be true.
The fact we are normally unaware of the ancestor cannot therefore, be a good thing. For starters he comes across as spooky when we do catch a glimpse, so we recoil in horror and confusion, then promptly forget those "incidents" while the ego reasserts itself as sole possessor of self. The alternative would be to do as I did: Listen and love; follow his promptings to actually develop synergy, so a marvel might emerge.
While I know deep satisfaction will come from your synergy with timelessness, once you develop it, all I can do is try to implant these ideas and offer initiation and development tools, once you sign up. You may already have experienced the stirrings of the mystery I'm talking about, as an apocalyptic form of beauty. This shines through the Pyramid, making it attractive to contemplate, with the power to catalyse the transformation I advocate.
To reform mankind's abusive relationship to nature, which we extend so unkindly to each other, requires we transform our thinking by comprehensively tuning our intuition in to the divine force of the universe, as both an inspirational and self limiting force. I offer my project for that purpose. You're invited to become a co-artist, though no artistic skill is needed. A willingness to accept the intuitive mind and adapt yours is essential. And while you're in this mode, learn this language. Sign up here Papolona.guru or on the butterfly button in this page header, then compose some honest guidance question(s) to start your ball rolling. You'll receive clues via the quantum field, the only place science has detected timelessness in action. Create something in partnership with Him.
