Through Dubrovnik, Croatia
Venture forth with me and see what I see
as we explore the imaginary
The World has just restarted it’s journey towards greater complexity, in the process it was purified towards recognizing the essence in the eye of an Alchemist and now Civilization is waking up from the lowest point in this circle of Medieval Age. It is peering through the timeless tunnel where everything is accounted for, the number of shortcuts taken, the wrongdoings and right actions turns into just long, persistent darkness and suffering which focuses the soul towards the light. The light is almost always at the end of the tunnel and, as one strives towards it, gradually becoming all encompassing and wiping out the memory of everything that has happened.
I can only ever perceive just this moment when I am walking through these streets among whispering stones, echoing my presence.
This particular point of light at the exit/entrance is under the city of Libertas. The times were shaping life before the communication technology, just at the waking of civilization as the era of iron finished it’s cycle. People wanted to live in harmony with the tides of surrounding powers. Venetians followed the ideal of a large swallowing machine but could not outsmart the small harmony-seeking tribes. St. Blaise appeared in the vision at the turning point and one consequence lead to another which inspired the road towards independence, diplomacy and discovery.
Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue. Buddha

Connecting imaginary and invisible cities, Joseph Stella,crises of society relating to tourism swarms
Charlie and Earling time travelled to the medieval moments of Europe, and in particular what the 21st century calls Dubrovnik felt like a great attraction. Charlie’s consciousness was merging with the stone and he felt the symmetry the particles were making and the combinatorial dance that spoke in many languages.
They were very proud of the Romance Dalmatian language spoken in Dubrovnik from the mid 15th century, to the point of forbidding the Croatian language in the epoch of the Gospari (Aristocracy). These were the golden years for Dubrovnik, then The Republic of Ragusa as they abolished slavery and opened pharmacy, orphanage and hospital as early as the 14th and 15th centuries.
The vision of freedom “Libertas” was also due to diplomatic skills and their trading ally Ancona, in effect rivaling no other but the Republic of Venice, the conglomerate of culture, art, engineering, military organization, and trading forces were the most important aspects at the time.
As they floated above the ground connected to it with invisible strings attached to the Stari Grad (Old Town), Charlie and Earling explored the area. They were connected in equal proportion to the city underneath and the stars, 3.5 million light years away. Those stars are still shining even though some of them may not exist at this moment.
Charlie: Libertas-ians had extraordinary power in that moment; they were able to pull together the vision, craftsmanship, unity that made the stone which speaks to us now. They can’t hear it yet, their technology is too weak, but we are blessed with that special hum. Can you understand, Earling, what is being said?
Earling: Stones are suffering, there are too many ants walking over them (article on tourism – humanity) imprinting the thoughts of selfishness and aimless wandering. Yet they are observing and accepting this phase of civilization. In a way it is a symbiosis of a kind, without the footprints they would have became fragile and rough. They would eventually turn into sand, and every stone is afraid of becoming that.
The ship has a mind of it’s own, as a living AI powered creature, it is programmed to react only when the right moment appears. It’s super brain/computer shifted them towards the sky to submerge itself into the gold of sunset. Only the golden colours inspire and power up Leviathan’s brain.
Charlie: Leviathan is such a noble creature, honoring the light and enabling alignment to it so that we can capture those moments.
the eye of horus
The eye of Horus is observing this civilization and trying to heal it at the same time, as the civilization observes itself increasingly more intense and with ease. Every conceptual monolith of technology is recording and being recorded. This painting is a mirror that has the life of it’s own, it communicates your thoughts doubled, it exposes but where is the breaking point?

Exploring Stella's work
As we walk through the town, the theme of unity constantly comes up, the balancing between the interest of the individual and the interest of the whole. Joseph Stella explored these aspects and here is more to it, while we continue to explore the ancient space-time of Libertas. Libertas had the strictest structures of all the concepts; slavery is so much easier, it is almost minimalist in it’s efficiency. Whole civilizations are running on it successfully, but Libertas explored itself, and mixed with others and then it fell deep down under the shattering of the Earth, which swallowed 5,000 denizens on that night of 1667. The times became unfavorable putting more and more pressure, but it is always pressure that yields new life and diamonds.

MAKING OF THE CENTER OF THE WORLD
“During the last years of the war I went to live in Brooklyn in the most forlorn region of the oceanic tragic city, in Williamsburg, near the bridge. Brooklyn gave me a sense of liberation. The vast view of her sky, in opposition to the narrow one of New York, was a relief – and at night, in her solitude, I used to find, intact, the green freedom of my own self.”
– Joseph Stella
There was such a polyphony of opposing forces, at one hand Stella was deeply connected to his Italian heritage and longing towards Italy, while on the other hand, this longing maybe inspired him to look and observe the transformation of American city with fresh eyes and awe toward the future.
“I had witnessed the growth and expansion of New York proceeding parallel to the development of my own life… and therefore I was feeling entitled to interpret the titanic efforts, the conquests already obtained by the imperial city in order to become what now She is, the center of the world.”
– Joseph Stella
