Whatever it depicts, all art has but one real subject: a combination of the artist's intuition, observation and technical skill. Kenneth Clarke in his TV series "Civilization" also said: "All art is in one way or another about the search for God." The Pyramid triptych represents a level of success there since it reveals something surprising through its symbolism. Rather than capricious inventions, the symbols are derived purely from the systems logic, a fact which makes their messianic meaning more than uncanny. Simply put, the Pyramid is proof positive there is an "other side", whose spirit influences us unconsciously, 24/7 and now apparently, "He's" offering direct guidance for those who can tune-in.
The art came into being from my tuning-in to that indeterminate human hive mind, broadly known as the collective unconscious. The observational innovation I used to get to that point is impossible for any unsensitised person to grasp, so throughout the thirty-odd years of my struggle to make the significance and implications of Pyramid Art known, I've faced-up to incomprehension and my efforts have been largely unsuccessful. So why put myself to all this trouble? For one thing it's my duty to point out if mankind fails to reform this area of perception, the class of error we constantly commit, which is ultimately responsible for the disaster our home planet is heading for, will literally sink us, even through our effort to turn things around. In other words I believe civilisation urgently needs to renew its creative vision by breaking through to conscious synergy with timelessness... or we and the planet are toast!
Result of my exhaustive investigation in a highly psychological area of observation, spearheaded by Carl Jung, the Pyramid demonstrates there's nothing to fear from delving this deep in daily life, quite the reverse, there's everything to gain and an incomparable satisfaction awaits those who try. What may be slightly scary here is the fact this systems art piece is marginally mathematical. But this also allows me to claim it as the first and only discovery in fine-art since the beginning and cite it as proof of principle for a creative revolution founded on guiding feedback.
Being an acute observer, no doubt you'll already have noticed a force outside the "ego self" controls the unconscious, working through our weird impressions, "inspired" deeds, dreams, déjà vu, serendipity and more. Most reasonable people are in denial over it, mainly because we cannot fathom the depth of the manipulation, as it operates even while we're "rational". Nevertheless, in previous ages down to the roots of civilization, it was recognised, even pursued and venerated, most famously at the temple of Apollo at Delphi.
Would you agree, while such a sublime source of wisdom remains ignored and unconscious, a humiliating state of affairs exists in today's status quo? Should we not attempt then to finally discover a conscious form of synergy with the transpersonal influence that's been "playing" mankind for millennia?
Pyramid Art emerged from my pursuit of this hidden force of mind through the guiding thread I picked up in my experience of timelessness. From a shocking beginning, it took daily form in what Carl Jung named synchronicity. These events were truly magical as, at the peak of this phenomenon there were hundreds to consider every day. Probably it grew so much because essentially the experience constitutes a kind of feedback and I decided as far as possible, to follow its guidance. In the process my impression of entering a state of synergy with time, events and nature as a whole was inescapable and as equally satisfying as it was scary. Pyramid Art, as the result of my personal journey, represents proof our innate connection to the Great Spirit of nature can produce a truly fantastic goal. In other words: joined-up positive potential will be set free by individuals and groups tuning-in to the force at the source of life itself.
What magic is this?
The facts are these: The mathematical system my process of following guidance in real-time revealed, exposes the timelessness of the mechanism at work. It does this by combining a very old binary coded data set with a modern arrangement from a twentieth century translation by Richard Wilhelm, of an ancient Chinese classic. At about twice the age of the Bible, the I Ching is the oldest book in constant use. It's also the source of the modern binary code. The Pyramid symbolism is the interference pattern produced by combining a pair of binary code sequences from the I Ching using a simple formula and all these steps were devised by following synchronicity and ultimately it is this act of following that extracts the symbolism. Messianic meaning is exposed there in the central imagery of the Pyramid.
It turns out to be a visual metaphor representing the divine, guiding power of beauty expressed in those two symbols. One comprises the beginning and end of the modern Roman alphabet, echoing the alpha & omega of the Bible. The other is the simplest drawing of a butterfly in flight. It's five lines constitute a signature and pictorial rendering of beauty as a living beast complete with four wings, body, head and antennae. Such economy of both line and symbolism, it must be said, in art at least, betrays supreme conceptual intelligence.
Pyramid Art is founded in ancient codes and nobody, least of all me, could have contrived it. Therefore it must be classed as a discovery. But if the materialist world view we currently live by is correct, it shouldn't even exist, because the animating spirit of beauty is unthinkable within this mindset. Because my method revealed its message mathematically, from stored binary information, it comes with the certainty we attach to such logic as the reflection of a universal truth. And so it offers proof of the route into creative synergy with the source of beauty and life itself, the route to our individual and collective salvation. Whether or not you're aware of it "His" force must control the way the mind works 24/7 and civilization must be nudged along by His "creativity" over time, without us necessarily noticing. Probably it's time we all tried.
You may think it's not sensible to ponder such complexity and anyway, "Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose"... but then a vital question arises: Why would "He" reveal himself in a work of art now, if not because collectively, we need to appreciate and follow his instructions to save ourselves? Do you see the lifeline being thrown? Will you reach out and grab it or go down with the ship of fools? It's your choice.
Just as the bright words here link to pictures and deeper definition, great art reveals beauty from beyond mere appearance. Pyramid Art extracts beauty through a mathematical and verifiable, systems approach by following directions provided by the Jungian observational phenomenon known as synchronicity. This weird perception occurs to everyone at some point, so in theory anyone could pursue it, once our eyes are opened and the path made clearer. But, our "reasonable" reflex is to dismiss such guiding meaning as a mirage, and that's the perennial mistake, which means we never get onto the first step of ascension. What if you were to adopt the holistic view and consider synchronicity as feedback from the creative spirit of the universe with the intuitive mind? Apropos, I've made this prospect easy to pursue when you join me as a co-artist here: Papolona.guru.
Physics affirms the whole universe is a quantum phenomenon. I've found a way, using a remote laboratory link to the quantum field, to tune intuition through a form of synchronicity on demand, so anyone can pursue synergy in real-time in the same way I did to discover the Pyramid. You needn't wait for synchronicity to occur spontaneously. But, like anything worthwhile, the technique I offer requires practice. Papolona (the Catalan word for butterfly) is an art experiment designed to both inspire and gather evidence of feedback as the viable route to synergy with beauty and the source of creation itself. Pictorial elements (papolona) are produced robotically, so it requires no artistic skill per se, so everyone can be a co-artist and build the collections. What really matters is your desire to develop intuitive synergy with the spirit of nature as expressed from the quantum world.
Do you agree that conscious intent to follow an honest partnership with nature is the only way to save humanity from itself? Since I've proven it's possible to pursue the Great Spirit in that way, why not try?
Spontaneous 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 represents feedback and gives access to nature's Great Spirit. The "normal" lack of discernment in this area of perception is exemplified by what neuroscientists refer to as "The Hard Problem". That's the phrase they use to characterise the failure of science to explain how the mind works. On the other hand, the synergistically receptive and intuitive mind, thanks to my discovery of the Pyramid, can now be identified as the essential area to develop. But first, we must drop cherished assumptions about free will and that puts the cat among the pigeons, because we view it rather too preciously, as our vital source of "identity". When you drop free will from your belief system, you open your path to the real time development of your synergy relationship with nature i.e., something far more valuable.
Something has been forgotten. In the words of 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 amnesia, we need to re-jig our behaviour toward nature and its hidden influence within. In other words, we should focus attention on our failure so far, to develop working synergy with the spiritual source of our own creativity. That also means any 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 as meaningful suggestions and provoked questions in my head, as a conversation to clarify what needed doing. My questions were answered on the fly by meaningful coincidences as 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, albeit a fascinating one. The effect was to develop my devotion to building the synergy partnership with timelessness clear of 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.
In a nutshell the Pyramid reveals how beauty, rather than being in the "eye" of the beholder, is a cosmic force, an ancestral intelligence that operates from the unconscious, from where it colours our logic, sparks ideas and moods that condition 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 a kind of creative partnership with nature, 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.
This language would be the catalyst to initiate a real-time relationship with the sublime, capable of teaching our human, sorcerer's apprentice mentality a 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. So, you can be sure 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 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 may seem 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 are going wrong and at least try to adapt? I personally doubt it, but it's nevertheless my mission to encourage such a change of heart. Political iniquity (as usual), egotism and greed has gotten us into the mess we're in. More of the same cannot get us out of it, because all these processes are blind to the unconscious roots of ideas. That's almost an insurmountable problem. Science does not even acknowledge the timeless dimension, nor that it's the source of a receptive intelligence amenable through sensitised intuition. Sensitisation is definitely needed to open the perception and it would seem only a work of art can make it available... but there's still the mental block to overcome, which is why you should maybe solve the conundrum: DUNCESLOSE.
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 be sidestepped and any more inconvenient evidence to highlight scientific taboos, would be unlikely to emerge.
Logic also dictates if ours is a randomly arranged universe, only meaningless, random 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 beauty at the heart of reality would be likely to emerge from my process and 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 too 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 intuitive mind; the path to synergy with nature at the timeless level?
The Pyramid would be an iconic statement by the universal abstract, and something to be studied at length, but where can we focus our attention to discover guidance in our day to day, without complicating life ever so much? Isn't there an easier way to make contact with 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 of the mind 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 of lifting humanity out of the crisis we're in, by developing synergistic genius. It also holds out the prospect of an existence beyond this life, a reunion with the source of life, what the ancient Chinese referred to as "the ancestor".
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.
