The theme of the painting: Ultimate reflection and the furthest reaches of the abstraction
Charlie: The universal is such an important concept, one of the most important in the general structuring of the elements. They seem simple and disconnected but in reality the whole system is corresponding to the universal rules and that is why you all are able to perceive so many reflections, similarities, symmetries and coincidences. The reflection doesn’t only happen in concept but also in movements of time.
Earling: I have been among the clouds and I saw the elements illuminated in their own light and the clouds as a whole composition were talking to me in a primordial language. Other Earlings were questioning this, and regarded it as a sign of craziness and too impractical, but then they started innovating and then they started doing arts, and those very same things that they were condemning were making them progress, reinvent themselves and raising them to another level of comfort, curiosity and supreme understanding. Or at least what some of them perceived as supreme, I personally believe that the world supreme is misused in so many cases.
Charlie: Strong words are invented and used in the system of language for the same purposes as inventive objects, to squeeze out the passion, to inspire and ignite. Each misuse is serving its purpose, and like the creation of anything may be interpreted as a form of art and so is the demise of those same things – it is the part of the circle and universal reflection in symmetry.
EarlingMax: Our world is so very symmetrical and obviously allegorical, unlike historical Earth. One would think that confusion was created on purpose, and complexity was completely misused to a point where it was frowned upon. People were seeking simplicity, solely because the term complexity was applied in the wrong context and as a tool to impress. It is fortunate that now we have a proper understanding of both and their constructive use.
Juptling: Cloaking devices for the lazy at heart and in mind, but as you have discovered
Earling those delusions don’t function forever. Simplicity and complexity are just the two sides of the same coin.
Charlie: I couldn’t have said it better myself Juptling. I am glad that you are involved with this discussion, especially because your world is so abstract for the fellow Earlings here, regardless of their level of advancement, your world was much more ruthless and less colourful that it compelled you to progress faster, to focus on the inner circles of consciousness.
This painting is the representation of reflection in water, reflection in life and reflection reflecting the starry night by Van Gogh. The solitude of the thinking, reflecting human, alone, an outcast, impossible to connect with any other creature due to the rarefied air that he is breathing and his brilliance is the curse that brought him to that area of rarefied air. The only way forward is by being the authentic self and as that represents such an unacceptable prospect, the salvation is in the creation which reflects everything within.
The universe in accordance to the human symmetry, which is faintly visible in the upper middle part of the painting with yellow cloak, is just a reminiscence to this sometimes fatal construct. Mostly because planet earth cannot sustain all the changes happening to it as a result of human centred attitude. Yes, the thinking processes and the reflections of all the elements affected by gravity that fall, float and fly are the ones that understand the deep universal truth of reflection and it’s power of connecting.
The water is one of those universal elements, which even though reflects in this case a pyramid or a mountain- which was used as a reference photo for this part of the painting. This context is communicating the power of three in the world of four and two. Genetics works with four elements, computers are a binary system, two elements, but the movement is three. The two to oppose up and down, right and left and 3rd to direct and pull towards the objective.
