*A spark ignites within my brain
It quickly joins some others
They fly across my mind’s domain
The fire that cooks my druthers

This simple act I call my thought
Glows within me like hot coals
My mind from which it has been wrought
May very well be my soul*

A fractal artwork inspired by the process of thought. Our thoughts are the organically generated electrical currents that ceaselessly swarm through our brains. Thought determines who and what we are, as without them we would merely be lifeless blobs of tissue and bone. Does this mean that our thoughts are actually what we call our ‘soul’?

It brings to mind the old philosophical and quantum mechanics debates, about whether our minds actually create the reality we live in, or if our minds merely observe the reality around us. We are but infants in our quests to understand thought and the mind, and we will never understand even a fraction of the power it holds in the overall design of the cosmos.

Now just ‘think’ about all that if you will!

    Think the mind is a fantastic gift. However modern society seems to want to have us fear our minds in many ways. I think if we connect our minds to our hearts as our number one source of gospel that we will create fulfilling lives way beyond our present beliefs.

  • Your so right, Tony. Modern society tends to demand that we conform to a set of predefined ideals, and are chastened when we freely associate anything outside of those predefined ideals. The powers that be don’t want us to think, as that would reveal their lies. Truth wants to live.
