Whatever you think it represents, all art has the same subject, defined by the observations, intuitions and technical skills of the artist expressing a vision of beauty received or conceived in the making process. The late Sir Kenneth Clarke, in his TV series "Civilization" also said: "All art is in one way or another about the search for God." In other words, only through our love of beauty can the timeless "Spirit of the Universe" come to our aid.
We'll need such help for evermore because of the perennial blindness in mankind's "vision", characterised by the things we've created that have unbalanced nature to produce the current mess. More blind groping can only complicate things further. Global civilization and commerce will need to find a working synergy with timelessness in this "altered" worldscape.
I was brought up as an atheist within an "artistic family", albeit a crippled one. So, my early life and memories were perhaps enriched by the appreciation of beauty, more than most, as a substitute for religion well before the synergy descended in my late 20's. From that point, through its many twists and turns, my developing spiritual partnership with nature homed-in on this language. This Pyramid Art triptych then represents a palpable example of the ability to synergise with and reveal something big in our lives, a connection to something beyond this planet. This Universal Spirit of Beauty came to me through the phenomenon known as synchronicity.
What does this art discovery signify then?
It signifies a true revelation of the Universal Spirit hidden within the reality we inhabit because Pyramid Art is a systems piece, produced by a formula that combines binary coded data from ancient source codes, found in the holistic, oriental vision of nature. The formula produces messianic meaning in the central imagery of the Pyramid, describing beauty as a guiding spirit, where logically, if the materialist world vision is correct, mere random squiggles should appear. In other words, my peculiar observational method gives proof "mathematical" for nature's timeless spirit influencing me 24/7 in a goal driven manner. This implies we humans have the ability for synergy with nature, direct via feedback where synchronicity is our way in to a psychological partnership with timelessness.
Unfortunately that concept is rejected by today's status quo as delusional. The Pyramid proves it isn't and in fact it is scepticism on this point, which is the root of all the world's woes. Civilization and its appreciation of holistic nature, through science, is what needs reform. In the words of Einstein: “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”. Our self imposed servitude is a prison, while the Pyramid is key to liberation.
The Pyramid came from breakthrough into what psychology refers to as the collective unconscious and what British astronomer and mathematician, Fred Hoyle referred to as the "Super-calculating Intellect". The artistic observation technique I exploited to reveal it is different from anything you'll be used to. That is not the only reason why, in the thirty-odd years of my struggle to make the Pyramid known, I've faced massive misunderstanding. Now however, through some simple sensitisation techniques, the problem can be solved. Are you open to a transformational synergy relationship, direct with the Great Spirit of nature, simply by changing the way you observe the world?
You may ask why put myself to the trouble? Well, for one thing, I developed the strange form of observation mentioned above, to the point where I can tune-in to timelessness at will. I offer short-cut tools for you to do the same because this ability is key to resolving the crisis we face collectively, going forward. My premise is this: If we fail as a species to access the synergistic dimension of creativity, the Gaia effect will be denied us and we will become even further mired whatever direction we take. The Pyramid is therefore, proposed as the key to a lateral form of human progress, without which the future looks very ugly.
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 slightly scare you here is the fact this systems art is mathematical. But this also allows me to claim it as the first and only discovery in fine-art and cite it as proof of principle for the needed creative revolution founded on natural feedback.
Being an acute observer, no doubt, you'll already have noticed a force outside the "ego self" controls the unconscious mind, working through your weird impressions, "inspirational" deeds, dreams, déjà vu, serendipity and more. Problem is, reasonable people are in denial about this alien presence, mainly because nobody has fathomed the depth of the ongoing influence, indeed the modern mindset, conditioned by science, considers itself separate and disconnected from the rest of creation. For this reason the source of mind effects is simultaneously regarded with only mild curiosity, but great suspicion. It is very confusing, since they operate even while you're rational, in for example, the phenomenon known as parapraxis (Freudian slip). Nevertheless, in previous ages, the influence I speak of was venerated as divine, most famously in the west, at the temple of Apollo at Delphi.
Would you not agree, while such an influence operates on us at a subliminal level and remains disregarded, a humiliating state of affairs exists in the status quo? Should we attempt to finally discover our talent for conscious synergy with the transpersonal spirit that's been "playing" mankind for millennia?
Pyramid Art emerged from 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 and at the peak there were hundreds in a day. The experience constitutes feedback and feedback has an amplifying effect. This came into play because I decided as far as possible, to follow synchronicity as guidance towards a goal to be decided in partnership. In the process my impression of entering a state of synergy with time, events and nature as a whole was inescapable and very satisfying, after the initial scariness wore-off. Pyramid Art, as the result of this personal journey represents proof our human connection to the Great Spirit of beauty can be developed in a goal oriented manner, almost like a download from nature, producing a kind of genius. In other words, creative potential in tune with nature can be liberated by people tuning-in to the abstract, who then colors every aspect of this life with meaning.
What magic is this?
The facts are these: By extrapolation, every aspect of being has a common source, from the beginning of time. My process of following synchronicity as guidance from that origin in real-time, settled on a formula that exposed this common, creative spirit of timelessness at work within humanity's every situation. This was achieved 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 via Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. The Pyramid symbolism is simply the interference pattern produced between those ancient and modern binary code sequences by applying a short set of rules, a mathematical system, which vitally, includes a mandala structure. All my steps in that process were determined by following synchronicity. So, ultimately it was my act of following that downloaded the symbolism, where messianic meaning is exposed in the central imagery of the Pyramid.
It turns out as the visual metaphor representing divine beauty in action. One of the symbols comprises the beginning and end of the modern Roman alphabet, echoing the alpha & omega of the Bible, the other is the five line sketch of a butterfly in flight, expressed like a signature in one continuous line, changing direction just four times. The rendering of beauty, symbolised as a butterfly, is complete with four wings, body, head and antennae. And the economy of line, it must be said, in art at least, betrays supreme, conceptual intelligence, which evidently belongs to the Great Spirit of Beauty, the timeless, cosmic artist.
If we were to wake-up to Him, everything would change and progress, but at this point it looks like he's tripping us over ourselves to get us searching for a way out of the mess we've created by disregarding Him. I suggest we stop now and take stock, before blundering-on any further.
Pyramid Art is mathematically couched in those ancient codes that nobody, least of all me, could have calculated, therefore it must be classed as a definitive discovery of nature's timeless, hive mind, in control of our creative thinking. But, if the materialist world view we're supposed to rationally live by is correct, such a spirit must be a delusion, because animating beauty is unthinkable within that mindset. But then again, because my method revealed its message from stored binary information that must have been placed where I found it by the same creative intelligence guiding me to it, the resulting meaning conveyed comes with the certainty we attach to mathematical logic as the reflection of universal truth, something we all must acknowledge. As such an evident contradiction, Pyramid Art highlights the failure of the status quo (the agreement we all have about the nature of reality) and offers the route to creative synergy with beauty, ultimately responsible for our evolution. 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 "Him" over time, without us noticing. Therefore, our failure to "observe him" is the obstacle we must now overcome in order to truly establish the needed, synergy partnership.
You may think: Is it sensible to ponder or pursue 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, after such a long silence, if not because collectively, we need to follow his instructions to the next step of evolution to save his/our creation? Do you see the lifeline being thrown? Will you reach out and grasp it, or let it slip through your fingers, to go down with the Titanic mess humanity has made of this world?
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 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 eyes are opened and the path made clearer. But currently, our "reasonable" reflex is to dismiss such guiding meaning as a mirage. 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 and develop that side of yourself? Apropos, I've made this prospect easy to pursue when you join me as a co-artist at: Papolona.guru. All you need do is ask Papolona for guidance.
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 you can pursue synergy with Papolona in the same way I did to discover the Pyramid. However, like anything worthwhile, the technique requires self conditioning, or practice.
Papolona (the Catalan word for butterfly) is an art to develop creative feedback with the Great Spirit as the viable route to synergy. The pictorial elements (papolona emblems) are produced robotically, so it requires no artistic skill per-se. Everyone can build their own insights through it, with a little sensitisation and training. It's the honest desire to develop intuitive synergy with beauty that matters. Do you agree that the intent to partnership with nature is the only way humanity can save itself?
Through the influence of a scientific myth (the assertion there is no God), something vital has been forgotten. In the words of perhaps the greatest scientific genius, Albert Einstein: "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 this amnesia, we need to re-jig our real-time behaviour toward nature and the hidden influence within. Should we focus our attention on our failure to develop working synergy with the spiritual source of our own creativity? It would mean the solution lies within the purview of fine-art and the way we appreciate beauty.
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 an abstract realm. 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 preciously, as our vital source of "identity". When you drop free will from your belief system, you open your path to the development of your synergy relationship with nature i.e., something far more valuable.
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. 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, enchant our dreams and pull at our strings in real life with weirdness in synchronicity, déjà vu, parapraxis etc. This means our appreciation of underlying beauty through positive feedback must push aside confusion to establish our creative partnership with nature, or else what's the point?
So, let's take a closer look at the Pyramid as 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 including your own, and this is something we can steer, once we recognise and strengthen our individual connection by applying feedback and the butterfly effect.
This language would be the catalyst to initiate a real-time relationship with the sublime, capable of teaching our sorcerer's apprentice mentality a remedial trick. The idea is to apply something like a software patch, splicing synergy into our 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 His original, "hieroglyphic" imagery. In technical terms such meaning can only belong to a holistic mind the unconscious is already part of.
How can I be so sure?
It has to do with the nature of meaning revealed. To begin with, the central imagery of the Pyramid consists in the point north attitude of an arrow with the letter N, suggesting a compass and this points at the butterfly flying east. In the point west attitude that same symbol becomes the A and Z monogram, overflown by the butterfly (Papolona). That's remarkably descriptive and messianic, given these symbolic 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 the system produces an interference pattern. One of the binary code sequences is relatively modern, the other is decidedly ancient, but both authors are long dead. So, you can be sure the meaning exposed belongs not to the intention of any living human, but to a timeless entity, hidden within us and the fabric of space-time, which I observed and took instruction/intention 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 via 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 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 shapes would result from my artistic, pattern making system. Remember, I followed synchronicity or "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 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 thinking 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?
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 crisis by developing synergistic genius. It also holds out the prospect of an existence beyond this life, a reunion with the source in death. The ancient Chinese referred to the Tao 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 as the place from where our thoughts must be influenced, whether we realise it or not. The ego suppresses it, claiming all ideas unto itself. Being receptive, discovering clues to eternity as metaphors and guidance, produces a natural kind of genius as one pursues them over time.
Planet Earth is in a perilous situation and we need help from somewhere now because "expert", scientific 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, but the willingness to accept the intuitive mind and adapt yours is essential. While you're in this transformation mode, learn this language too. 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 to interpret in answer. That's the only place science has detected timelessness in action via quantum entanglement experiments.
Papolona will stimulate the experience of synchronicity in your environment as the result of your interaction. Be receptive there too and devote yourself to realising a beautiful goal together.
