*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!
