The fractal inside my head by jlof The fractal inside my head by jlof
Psychedelic painting, visionary glossolalia or synesthesia: mind to image.

I believe humanity can learn a much more advanced way of communication when we understand how the shape, texture and color can be traced back to level of neural program, the fractal inside our heads.

Input bandwidth of eye's retina is far greater than what serial communcation of written or spoken language can ever be. Image is learned instantly.

We also know from neural networking that all learning is pattern recognition. How those learned patterns are stored in our minds? Can they be transferred?

While painting process is slow, artist can share personal visions and communicate deeper and stronger with psychedelic surreal images, rather than just copying things what we see in world around us. These are indeed mind maps. What if one day we had a mind to image projection possible in real time. What kind of language that would create?

Humanity can be much more, but most of them ignore or simply refuse to go beyond these comforts of every day mediocrity and routine.
Anyways, this is a great concept and the art work requires a lot of attention to understand all it`s meanings and still remains something to `read` from it.:thumbsup:

Those who are the most attached to their routines are at the same time the least aware and are the most vulnerable to psychological manipulation.

The question is; who/what is controlling them now, and how to feed new programs into them?

The amount of detail and your choice in such a soft palette really create an incredible atmosphere.

I get touched by this!
You really depict a level of geometry that resonates deeply within my being.

I also get the feeling that the person in the bottom is going through "La Purga" ;)

*gratitude*

Humanity, birth to death. I would take one of my paintings down and hang it on my wall, could look at this again and again and again.
