The art of CODEX is presented and meant to be a theoria, a contemplation. The ILLUMINATIONS are intended as a form of spiritual technology. Each image begins as a circumference encompassing a void. No-thing is an empty omphalos ~ an invisible navel energetic with life at it’s moment of birth. The images within this “sacred space” are conceived as releasing “messenger gods” who dwell within and beyond our individual consciousness. Imagine that here there are passageways of creative spirit bearing gifts and keys to understanding the Mystery of Being.
A number of the images in CODEX are psychadalas. A psychadalic image arises from the mirroring of identical images. At their intersection a unique imaginal line of being & becoming ~ an axis mundi ~ forms. This is syntropia: the creative third that radiates forth from the integration and projection of that which is reflected back on itself.
In the end, the CODEX of ILLUMINATIONS presents art as an entheogen… the image as generative of the divine within. Psychadalas are vehicles meant to release the self through the exercise of “mental yoga” ~ dynamic mindfulness. The axis mundi found throughout CODEX illustrate the experience of consciousness as it ascends from a near-dead stasis to an awakened peak. Kundalini. Concentration on these images will exert a cooling power on the dance of the ego. Contemplation is further enhanced when accompanied by
