Origin of Human Consciousness Dramatized In Ancient Myth and Visual Art


Origin of Human Consciousness Dramatized In Ancient Myth and Visual Art I was prompted to create this post after reading The Origin of Consciousness in the Break Down of the Bicameral Mind by  Julian Jaynes and recognising similarities to my own theory of Dream Linguistics.

The Spell


Magick Spell I Called And Something Came Magick Spell oil on canvas, 20 inches by 16 inches, 2017 Purchase the original painting at Saatchi Art The appearance of the spirit, which can often be seen in incense smoke, has close parallels to what is known as pareidolia, to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern, or the human ability to see shapes or make pictures out of randomness.  The concept of pareidolia leaves us wondering whether the spirits are within or without, or maybe both.

Being the last in a sequence, Princess Earth is symbolic of […]
