Awakening the sleeping soul...

Unsconscious state
Soul sleep: an evaluation: "'Soul sleep' is a fairly unobjectionable doctrine that supposes, quite simply, that between the time of our individual deaths, and the time of the final resurrection and judgment, we will be in an 'unconscious' state..."

Protonantiproton collisions...


Asemic symbolic exploration
Charged Jet Evolution and the Underlying Event in Proton-Antiproton Collisions: "In a proton-antiproton collision a large transverse momentum outgoing parton manifests itself as a cluster of particles (both charged and neutral) traveling in roughly the same direction."

Asemic symbolism has no verbal sense, though it may have a clear contextual sense. Through its design, composition and symbolic content, asemic symbolism may evoke an understanding, meaning or intuition. Through its composition and symbolic content, asemic symbolism may provide an understanding of complex ideas. This form of art depends on the viewers knowledge of philosophy, art history, mathematics, religion, philosophy, physics, sociology, nature and other esoteric subjects for it to make sense, or it can be understood through aesthetic intuition. Asemic symbolism is truly a product of the Internet.

Archaic remnants...

Latent deam

  "The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing." Isaiah Berlin


“Like Freud, Jung believes that the human mind contains archaic remnants, residues of the long history and evolution of mankind. In the unconscious, primordial "universally human images" lie dormant. Those primordial images are the most ancient, universal and "deep" thoughts of mankind. Since they embody feelings as much as thought, they are properly "thought feelings." Where Freud postulates a mass psyche, Jung postulates a collective psyche. “
Patrick Mullahy (b. 1912), U.S. psychoanalyst, philosopher. Oedipus: Myth and Complex, ch. 6, Grove Press (1948).

XIII. Archaic Remnants and Infantilism in the Dream. Sigmund Freud. 1920. A General Introduction to Psychoanalysis: "LET us revert to our conclusion that the dream-work, under the influence of the dream censorship, transforms the latent dream thoughts into some other form of expression. The latent thoughts are no other than the conscious thoughts known to us in our waking hours; the new mode of expression is incomprehensible to us because of its many-sided features. We have said it extends back to conditions of our intellectual development which we have long progressed beyond, to the language of pictures, the symbol-representations, perhaps to those conditions which were in force before the development of our language of thought. So we called the mode of expression of the dream-work the archaic or regressive."

Hylozoism...


Latent powers of abiogenesis
"the universe is alive"
Hylozoism :is the philosophical conjecture that all or some material things possess life, or that all life is inseparable from matter. This means that the universe is essentially alive or that 'inanimate' matter has latent powers of abiogenesis. The English term was introduced by Ralph Cudworth in 1678

Meadering spiral...

  Ascending gyres

complex dynamics of life

“What is art but life upon the larger scale, the higher. When, graduating up in a spiral line of still expanding and ascending gyres, it pushes toward the intense significance of all things, hungry for the infinite?”

Elizabeth Barrett Browning quotes (English poet, political thinker, and feminist 1806-1861)

Meander of spiral waves - Scholarpedia: "Meander of spiral waves in reaction-diffusion system is a rotation of the spiral wave superimposed with a periodic motion which is caused by a Hopf instability or by external periodic forcing of a rigidly rotating spiral wave."

Thinking about form...

Form is sometimes considered a mere spice added by the artist to the representation of objects in order to make it pleasurable. (Rudolf Arnheim)

Form, Shape and Space: "Form and shape are areas or masses which define objects in space. Form and shape imply space; indeed they cannot exist without space."
