Daily 4 of 365
The 20th century artists dove deep into themselves. They dissolved the cultural demands and got down to pure conscious contact through the medium of art. A rift developed between abstraction and realism mirroring the rift felt in western culture between the world we share as a consensus versus the inner world that the self resides. The empire and the individual are at odds.
We see now the mending of that rift. We are coming back around to a grand synthesis. There is a reunion of the conscious heart with the external world. It is our flirtation with darkness that is pulling at us to remake ourselves. Just as a near suicide often brings a renewed appreciation for breathing, similarly our entire species is creating near suicide with the destruction of the ecosystem.
As we teeter on the edge of destruction we glimpse a view of possibilities; A world fallen into annihilation yet also realization that we may be simply on a step in a huge staircase. It is this grasping of our shadow that we find the catalyst needed live the life we know is possible. The catapliar is destroyed completely before becoming a butterfly.
Things are going to continue to get strange for us. We are seeking something never found before, and asking questions to which we must also provide the answer. We are observing ourselves inside a dream inside a simulation, wrapped in opinions, with only a fraction of the observable date. Yet we also have everything we need to discover the truth. It is in the things we do not yet see that we will find our quantum leaps forward.
