Theme of the painting: Multidimensionality of Maya as a Sphere
Charlie: One can never equate what you perceive with what it really is. Your biological body is prone to hypnotize and predetermine your actions! There is an element called genetic wisdom and survival/improvement of the species which your mind sometimes faces in the moment of conflicting thoughts.
Earling: I read somewhere among the books and sayings on Earth that:
“The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function.” F. Scott Fitzgerald
Maybe the moment will soon come when the opposition will not be misused but will contribute towards the understanding of the whole which seems far more complex and beyond good and evil?
EarlingMax: Good is fighting Evil, but in fact they are just the opposing side of the same spectrum. One of the ancient philosophysicists Einstein used to say: “you can never solve a problem on a level on which it was created” isn’t it obvious that instead of learning and trying to delete one of the two sides of the same spectrum, one should focus on interplay of the whole. In other words the Sphere!!!
Charlie: The history proves that the intelligence develops from heavier to lighter, and lighter still until it loses the need to abide in the material sphere among the stars, there is no need for gravity, time and space to control, bind and restricts you, instead the restricting elements are much more subtle. They have their own consciousness and purpose.
Earling: We are only starting to see the sphere, we neglected in environmentally, we focused on the linear, short term benefits, that was the only way out of darkness, into the survival. The gene conditioned to go through everything without looking back survived and is pestering the world in the form of oversized ego. Everyone is trying to become someone else, while only the few are looking inwards and becoming what they are.
EarlingMax: Those who look inwards are the greater observers of the outside and the functioning of this world that is yet inaccessible to you Earling is at the mercy of their imagination. There is no need for laws around here, because we have boosted the natural eliminating process of genetic functioning, thus moral values are the only sphere where Justicia still lives.
Charlie: Civilization is a living conglomerate of everything that built and destroyed it in equal proportion and while you EarlingMax may feel superior towards Earling due to your more complex reach of transformation, the innocence is the most important element. It seems random, wild, non palpable but life cannot function without it
The painting was born during the walk by the Adriatic, and the vision of the sphere came to mind like a reflection of the planet we live in, but also the fact that each element that surrounds us all the way down to microscopic world may in fact be defined as a sphere. The molecular world for instance is one of the most extreme examples.
Considering that we live in a linear world, or at least the society conditions us to understand it as such, full of mostly dual choices and actions, I started reading the philosophy of Peter Sloterdijk and was very interested in the proposition of understanding this world in a deeper multidimensional sense, because that is what it’s physical representation communicates. The planet lives in coordination with all the elements that comprise it, and no matter how much human civilization may found itself distanced and in some cases despising the natural world, and some unfavourable elements, resulting in bad economy, I believe, much like Peter Sloterdijk outlines that we as a civilization are mature enough to be able to look at the world as a whole, rather than just taking a human centred approach, which seemed to be the case in the industrial era and many other eras before that.
Excerpt from Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Sloterdijk
-In the style of Nietzsche, Sloterdijk remains convinced that contemporary philosophers have to think dangerously and let themselves be “kidnapped” by contemporary “hyper-complexities”: they must forsake our present humanist and nationalist world for a wider horizon at once ecological and global. Sloterdijk’s philosophical style strikes a balance between the firm academicism of a scholarly professor and a certain sense of anti-academicism (witness his ongoing interest in the ideas of Osho, of whom he became a disciple in the late seventies). Taking a sociological stance, Andreas Dorschel sees Sloterdijk’s timely innovation at the beginning of the 21st century in having introduced the principles of celebrity into philosophy. Sloterdijk himself, viewing exaggeration to be required in order to catch attention, describes the way he presents his ideas as “hyperbolic” (hyperbolisch).-
