Artist's Description

A few months ago the State of Michigan was trying to pass a bill that would tax service based companies (as if this state didn’t have enough trouble, now its trying to eliminate any opportunity for any new business to relocate here). To help everyone concerned, the legislator published a long list of service’s that would be affected. Out of the hundreds of services, one came to my attention that, of course would directly impact me, that of the service of Phrenologist.
Now I know that not many people read the entire list and, since the bill did not pass (along with hundreds of other bills, like the state budget) I suspect that I must be the only practicing Phrenologist left to worry about such an outcome. True I am a bit more advanced in my profession than my predecessors, as I am a “ Kirlian Ultra Phrenologist “ or “ KUP ” for short, still I am taken aback that this state should single out such a severely depleted profession as mine for it’s grossly undermined tax base.
I fully understand that many still hold a prejudice against this career path for cutting off Mozart’s head however, I must point out that we did return it a little later (100 years later) after studying it carefully for any signs of “bump” genius. I also would point out that this act was not much different than that of da Vinci yanking out corpses to do his drawings or, some other early physicians to, ahem “ advance medical knowledge”.
I know too that the “winners” in history get to re-write it to reflect their own virtue, while castrating the losers to oblivion, or worse, implied villainy of the meanest kind (especially in western anglo-cized medicine (chiropractors notwithstanding)). My contention is though, that we, as a group of ” Phrenic Scientists “ were essentially correct in our basic understanding and concepts except we didn’t have “fancy MRI’s” or “Blood Flow Scans” or “BIO Feedback Wave Analysis” or “Computers” to pinpoint neuron centers of brain activity associated with love or, hate or genius, etc, etc, etc.
Now, of course, I singularly, have elevated this way beyond their mere colloquial ” silicone mechanical diagnoses “, to the transcending realm of true; “ Kirlian Associated Kuantum Encephalicalogy “ or ” KAKE “ for short. Therefore I humbly submit this graphic representation as one of my first attempts in “ Kirilin Transcendental Multidimensional Kuantum Phrenology 2008 “. Singed EZ Grant, “ Kup Kake “.
