Artists May Have More Grey Matter Than the Rest of Us


"Art is a lie that makes us realize truth."
Pablo Picasso


How Artistic Brains Differ

Artists have more grey matter !



"Artist, you are a priest:
Art is the great mystery and,
if your effort results in a masterpiece,
a ray of the divine will descend as on an altar.

Artist, you are a king:
Art is the true empire,
if your hand draws a perfect line,
the Cherubim themselves will descend to revel in their reflection.
Spiritual design, a line of the soul, form of understanding,
you make our dreams incarnate.

Artist, you are a mage:
Art is the great mystery,
it only proves our immortality."

Joséphin Péladan

"Awareness is only one part of consciousness.

The greater part is imagination/creation.

It needs no factual foundation.

It needs no sanction.

Art makes realities, worlds, universes.

In doing so, it jettisons rules.

It makes up its own rules,

or dispenses with rules altogether."

Jon Rappoport

"The revolt against individualism
naturally calls artists severely to account,
because the artist is of all men the most individual;
those who were not have been long forgotten."

Willa Cather

Art reflects the creative immortality of the individual.

33,000 BC

Abstract visual imagery is being painted on rocks, skins, faces and clothes.

1500

Raphael, Michelangelo, and Leonardo da Vinci make technical breakthroughs in perspective.

"Perspective painting records objects as they look, at a moment in time, thereby implicitly subordinating reality to the human observer and affirming the fundamental dualism of separation of self from the natural world.

The ambition was to make representation real, the same ambition that lives on in the latest version of the trap for immortality: the software simulation of consciousness in a virtual reality world. We now live almost wholly in a manufactured reality, a world of images, but nothing has actually changed." - Charles Eisenstein

"In the West the painter's and sculptor's job has been
to design the perfect trap for human immortality."

"Dictatorships did not succeed in frightening artists to death, nor has democracy done them in altogether, although some observers consider democracy to be by far the greater threat."

"Genius has been the servant of tyranny and art has advertised the merits of the local cult.

Time, as it passes, separates the good art from the bad metaphysics.

Can we learn to make this separation, not after the event, but while it is actually taking place?

That is the question." - Aldous Huxley



magic of music

"The brain has a strong propensity to organize information and perception in patterns, and music plays into that inclination.

From an acoustical perspective, music is an overstructured language, which the brain invented and which the brain loves to hear." - Michael Thaut



Art defined herein:


human creativity

aesthetic reenactment of nature

superior skill attained by study, practice and observation

the conscious production or arrangement of sounds, colors, forms, movements, or other elements in a manner that affects the sense of beauty in an attempt to lift the human spirit into ascension.

Social cultures set living patterns.

Predatory psychopaths see these patterns and take advantage of the weaknesses of the pattern due to the cultural taboo that have been set.

Social culture taboo was originally set through example: tragedy - do not mimic!

Creative individuals recognize these patterns as well but they are restricted by moral concerns.

Predators strive to keep minds restricted within narrow limits of confined understanding.

Art done with politic purpose allows direct conscious access to the individual subconscious thus breaking the confining limits of narrow understanding.



both sides now

"Art is like chocolate to the brain. Art taps into both sides.
Art has benefited the soul of the species since the time of cavemen."
Gene D. Cohen

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world central banking system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought. All factual information presented on this web site is believed to be true and accurate and is presented as originally presented in print media which may or may not have originally presented the facts truthfully. Opinion and thoughts have been adapted, edited, corrected, redacted, combined, added to, re-edited and re-corrected as nearly all opinion and thought has been throughout time but has been done so in the spirit of the original writer with the intent of making his or her thoughts and opinions clearer and relevant to the reader in the present time.
