Holoscopic Nature by Adam-Scott-Miller Holoscopic Nature by Adam-Scott-Miller
A vision of nature in the context of quantum patterns creating the whole from the microscopic to the macroscopic.

Some proposed keys to understanding...:

A pattern is the form that composes or generates each part, and each to the rest of the whole.
A fractal is a pattern that repeats at ever increasing and/or decreasing scale, that can be subdivided in parts, each of which is a smaller copy of the whole.
A hologram is a 2D plane that generates a 3D space when it is illuminated in the right manner. Each part of the hologram contains the image of the whole, even if it is torn into pieces.
Relativity is the perceptive theory that parts (i.e. space and time) are not in fact separate from the whole, but one continuum (spacetime). Despite the apparent separateness of things at the explicate level, everything is a seamless extension of everything else into an infinitely ornate magic carpet.
To scope is to examine or investigate the range of one's perceptions, thoughts, or actions.
A fugue is a musical composition (and/or texture) in which a theme(s) is echoed successively through a multitude of differing voices forming a symphonic tapestry.
The ‘psychic-genome’ concept, meaning “genetic information of the mind”, construes that organisms’ DNA is intimately linked with the corresponding mind in ways that manifest in its habitual patterns of activity.
Epistemology, the nature of knowing, calls into question the parabolic relationship of knower, that which is known, and unknown.

Matter doesnt exist within a vacuum of empty space but rather a fabric of unknown proportions called space-time that is relative to matter and more importantly to the singularity event creation in a big bang scenary of intial action caused by branes contacting each other in parrallel dimensions of space time. The singularity event hubble witnessed is simply a manifestion in dynamics of a creation event similar to molecules forming biological matter. When the singular event of dna duplication of vessels could be inherited a big bang event happened. The universe is a spherical body of mass existing in unaccessable parallel universities and dimensions at the same time not removed from the same space fabric we share. DNA is a carrier device to cells as Space is a carrier device to parallel universes and dimensions. Therefor space and Dna are both variations of an uknown fabric.of a universe, the cells are universes and so is mass. Space is not

Spooky action at a distance is merely the constant flux and sequential pattern rates of the electromagnetic orbits of electrons around atoms. You cant see a movie by taking a photo. If you build nano cameras at the atomic scale then you will see electronics orbiting atoms as the earth does the sun in another example of the regenerative dynamics of singularity end events or freeze points of a universe where it shifts into a parrallel mode of existence in any universe of any dimension it in parallel so no displacements occure. Picture a gravity device on nasa space shuttle is turned of while viewing marbles that resemble planets moving in a pattern which is effected by mass, force, gravity, time all in scalar expression maps in sequential video patterns of behavior relative to interval patterns in music theory of based in scales divided by frequency partitions of oscillating waves in frequencies up to 24khz, the limit of human hearing, which is similar to checks and balances on system to be kepted in check for max born map fields of existencce similar to a freezing universe as it approaches 0 increase in expansion due to no energy. if a cell dies its membrane ruptures spilling its contents into smaller molecules and you can reduce to lower until electronics switch orbits to other atoms. Its all a singular shift into a parallel mode of existence within the same space time fabric so all newtonian laws can work.

This is so incredible!
I recently had a vision that looked just like the bottom part of this painting...the spheres connected by lines...somehow I understood it to be a way of traveling from planet to planet, or moving through time. Or a state of no-time? It's hard for my waking mind to make sense of and it's sooooo nice to see it verified in such an amazing visionary painting like this. You obviously have your eyes wide open!

Interesting piece. I enjoy the subject and find great truth in it. Beauty and
darkness as well. I like how the piece can be apreciated as whole (astro physical level) also in parts (quantum physical level).
Nice layout/composition/concept well excecuted. I would like to mention that I agree that we expirience our perception of reality not the thing in and of itself but the thing through our senses. I also really like how everything is linked.

AdamDPalmer Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2006
well I must say, tis' the essence of Highland-Town, Maryland.

Pardon my nerdness, but I must make one crit. Relativity is not a theory of perception, as it is not concerned with attempting to address how the human mind percieves phenomena. Rather, it is a physical theory concerned with determing the nature of gravity, originally proposed by Albert Einstein.

Perhaps you are confusing the term with relativism, which according to wikipedia is defined as:

Relativism expresses the view that the meaning and value of human beliefs and behaviors have no absolute reference. Relativists claim that humans understand and evaluate beliefs and behaviors only in terms of, for example, their historical and cultural context.

The latter term, however, would suggest that there are actually many different, fragmented versions of human existence that cannot be unified.
Adam-Scott-Miller Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2006
I refer to relativity in the context of perception, it doesn't "matter" whether it is called a theory of perception, it inherent'y involves perceiving phenomena.there are two kinds of relativity that I have in mind. The first is in obtaining a perception, wherein one thing is related to another (e.g. light is absorbed/reflected off an object), which I shall refer to as relative perception. The second is in discriminating (comparing) different kinds of the same mode of perception (e.g. distinguishing red from green), which I shall refer to as relative discrimination. The implications of each are astounding, but taken together they call into question our very concept of reality itself. It seems to be the case that this relativity is a big problem for the materialistic view.
It is clear that relative perception can only lead to a change in a substance. We can follow this train of changes for as long as we like, and never come to understand conscious perception. Even if we propose a substance of spirit, we still have nothing more than a change in this substance, and the problem of how to explain conscious perception remains. The only conclusion I can draw from this is that our very notion of conscious perception is entirely false; that is, there is no such conscious perception. But now the burden falls on me to explain why it seems to be the case that we do have conscious perceptions. I believe that there is but one thing of which everything consists, but it is not anything that could be called material substance. Given the ubiquitous nature of this substance, I see no reason to think that we, as conscious entities, are not made of the same sort of stuff as everything else in the known universe. The logical conclusion is that we are substance, and through the process of relative perception, a change is effected in us, thereby changing our selves in the process. We don't perceive objects in the external world; our very being includes an aboutness regarding those objects. Or, perhaps substance is just a process whereby information is computed, in which case we are informational processes.
Also, relativity does not date back to just Einstein, it has been a concept dating back to ancient Sanskrit.

i agree, the critique seems to be out of context here...anyways great work always
AdamDPalmer Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2006
psst, Sanskirt is a language, not a theory or set of beliefs. Word to your mother. My friend, when you write, you must consider that certain terms have certain connotations. To any person other than yourself, your mom, and her mom, and her momma's mom, and all of your family's lineage of mom's, mentioning relativity in relation to spacetime connonates Einstein and his theory.

Anyway man it's a kickass painting which I love, but you might wanna edit your descriptions down a tad. Just givin ya a hard time, cause that my style my fellow nacho in arms.
gromyko Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
he refers to the sanskrit culture...ancient hinduism/buddism/etc share the relativistic belief...Einstein only applied it in the physical sciences...what is presented by the artist here is his view of the holographic sense of nature, the seemingly illusionistic perspectival perceptions...

the artist also specified:
Given the ubiquitous nature of this substance, I see no reason to think that we, as conscious entities, are not made of the same sort of stuff as everything else in the known universe. The logical conclusion is that we are substance, and through the process of relative perception, a change is effected in us, thereby changing our selves in the process. We don't perceive objects in the external world; our very being includes an aboutness regarding those objects.

You speak of connotations when you dislodge your own interpretation of relativity...please contextually read before giving any critique to a work of art, consider first what the artist express in his work and its relation ship with the description and vice versa and squeeze the idea of the painting, what it teaches...

but i agree its a great work

Ahhh! So much iconography! I love this conceptually and the detail is exquisite; it gives a great impression of depth.
With reference to the 'psychic genome' concept, have you read 'DNA and the Origins of Knowledge' by Jeremy Narby? It's an excellent book.
Adam-Scott-Miller Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2006
I very much look forward to reading that book this summer. I construe that it is in similar perspeception to Graham Hancock's "Supernatural"?
PanCthulhu Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2006   Traditional Artist
I am somewhat reluctant to read anything by Hancock, as I have read so much that discredits his 'alternative archeology' work. I may read Supernatural though, as the subject is one that interests me.

I have yet to read Hancock's book, but I believe it is in a similar vein.
