We are deep caverns of experience. The following artwork explores, expresses, opens up, and begins to look inside these vast caves of humanity. Each of us has an inner universe of dimension. Our subconscious minds are always in contact with this reality or inner world, this unimaginable vast inner dimension. If the Earth became a black hole, it would have a diameter of about 0.017 meters, about the size of a marble. A mountain can fit inside an atom. Meaning we have a vast amount of space within us, an enormous dimensional space. The four figures in the artwork 'Our Inner Universe' are all experiencing a different inner life. Expressed are their different physical realities, the mind-body complex that influences these inner worlds within the same space. All the figures have a different belief system, a contrasting inner universe. Some are closer to harmony with the universe, happiness or flow than others; some are completely open or empty. Our senses are only fragments of reality; what is behind the curtain of the divine?. We observe the world as a layer of surfaces. The subconscious mind is always in contact with all the subtleties and depth of existence. A part of our brain is in constant contact with the vastness of experience. Some people become fully conscious and can link the conscious and subconscious mind, gaining wisdom from such experiences. In such conscious experiences, the form of the body no longer exists, a reconnection with infinite space, the divine. The hologram the brain produces of reality becomes expanded without limit. “Heaven and hell are within us, and all the gods are within us. This is the great realization of the Upanishads of India, already in the ninth century B.C. All the gods, all the heavens, all the worlds are within us.” Joseph Campbell Love.
