What is the world coming to?
Rumors of the world ending delivered to us via false prophets and true prophets. A sense of uncertainty has overcome humanity I think. With the world’s economical system in the dumps and little hope for a positive future, I don’t blame humanity for thinking the world may end. I have become very interested in humanities destiny because I am sensitive to foretelling future events. Although I would never call myself a prophet. No one should, why? Because time doesn’t exist. Time is a physical law of this dimension. A psychic reads the current energy and if the energy changes; time changes, the outcome changes. One doesn’t need a PHD in astrophysics to determine that time is caused by motion which is the fourth axis. We only need to observe the rotation of the earth’s axis to determine planetary time. Time is evolutionary, it evolves from morning to midday to evening to night. Time isn’t instant, hardly anything in life is instant.
Pablo Picasso once said, “Every act of creation is first an act of destruction.”
As an art student my professors have stressed numerous laws and rules that we should follow during our own processes. My professors have also stressed the difference between art and design. The major difference is that art establishes the strongest emotional bond between the artist and their audience. On the other hand, the designer’s job isn’t to invent something new, but to communicate something that already exists, for a purpose. Good art sends a different message to everyone. Good design sends the SAME message to everyone. Within design there are specific principles that should be paid attention to, in art such principles are more likely to not exist.
In design its’ principles are; balance, contrast, emphasis, movement, proportion, space and unity. Essentially all design disciplines follow the same principles. In mysticism, the physical universe is seen as architecture. The secret societies especially the Freemasons call the God concept the Great Architect of the Universe. Here is where I plead my case; once one learns the principles of design of one design discipline he can then apply them to other design disciplines, including architecture and therefore the physical world.
The universe, with both physical and spiritual, is the completed composition, that which expresses the design principle of unity and oneness. In the Gospel of Thomas, Jesus once said to his disciples, ”On the day when you were one, you became two. But when you become two, what will you do?” Within this divine composition we face contrast and the struggle to keep balance. Contrast expresses the positive and negative magnetism that holds the physical shell together. Without contrast, or opposites our bodies and the physical world cannot function. Movement or motion creates the illusion of time and therefore change. The Law of Motion changes not, but all things change in motion. For motion is the force that holds events separate, each in its own proper place. Space is the boundless, three-dimensional extent in which objects and events occur and have relative position and direction. Motion is time, to stop time, to end it creates stillness, oneness. Although modern physicists usually consider it, with motion, to be part of the boundless four-dimensional continuum known as space-time. Harmonic Proportion is essential to keeping the building of physical reality in balance. In the Vedic civilization of the Far East, the Vedas delivered the science of architecture, or Vastu. Vastu is a system of design based on directional alignments. Vastu shastra prescribes desirable characteristics for sites and buildings based on flow of energy (prana in Sanskrit). Many of the rules are attributed to cosmological considerations – the sun’s path, the rotation of the earth, magnetic field, etc. The harmonic proportions, human proportions, cosmological/astronomical proportions and orientations, and various aspects of sacred geometry (the vesica piscis), pentagram, golden ratio, and small whole-number ratios were all applied as part of the practice of architectural design. The rule of emphasis is seen as synchronistic events. Synchronicity is the experience of two or more events, that are apparently causally unrelated or unlikely to occur together by chance, that are observed to occur together in a meaningful manner. Synchronistic events reveal an underlying pattern, a conceptual framework that encompasses, but is larger than, any of the systems that display the synchronicity.
