The Allegory of The Bicameral Mind - oil on canvas
Oil on canvas, 50x70cm. The starting point for the painting is my best photo from the series "Inside violin" is an old French Cello.
First must give credits for putting 3 paintings inside this one, Van Gogh's "The bedroom at Arles", Caravaggio's "The Incredulity of Saint Thomas" (was the only one to touch Jesus after his resurrection thanks to his inquiring mind) and detail of Michelangelo's "The Creation of Adam" beside being one of the most recognizable pieces of art, I love the hidden symbol, the shape of a brain outlined by God's billowing shroud, and the hand of God is in the place of the third eye, where is the spark of the inner light, and I believe this is the main difference between humans and less aware creatures.
I'll put a few words about a theory popularized by the Westworld series - the bicameral mind, and the loops.

The loops are cycles that repeat over time, we go through them  ending in a state similar to the one we started from. Time cycles like years, days, emotional fluctuations like happiness-depression, repetitive thoughts, breaths, relationships, examples are countless.The less conscious we are, the more we behave as an automaton, and we end up in the same situation over and over again, with no evolution gains. Every spark of awareness is a potential to transform the loop into a spiral, and evolve into a higher state of energy, for example like quitting bad habits, toxic relationships and so on. Very interesting is the sexual part of the loop, when the rhythmic movements reduce the perceived reality to loops that last fractions of a second, leading to a trance state in which you lose your sense of identity, or form a couple identity, and which may be the beginning of a new life cycle, which on the other hand leads to parents' entry into a very stable loop with immense conditioning and responsibilities.

Bicameralism (the condition of being divided into "two-chambers") a radical hypothesis in psychology that argues that the human mind once operated in a state in which cognitive functions were divided between one part of the brain which appears to be "speaking", and a second part which listens and obeys — a bicameral mind. The term was coined by Julian Jaynes, who presented the idea in his 1976 book The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind, wherein he made the case that a bicameral mentality was the normal and ubiquitous state of the human mind as recently as 3,000 years ago, near the end of the Mediterranean bronze age.
Jaynes uses governmental bicameralism as a metaphor to describe a mental state in which the experiences and memories of the right hemisphere of the brain are transmitted to the left hemisphere via auditory hallucinations. The metaphor is based on the idea of lateralization of brain function although each half of a normal human brain is constantly communicating with the other through the corpus callosum. The metaphor is not meant to imply that the two halves of the bicameral brain were "cut off" from each other but that the bicameral mind was experienced as a different, non-conscious mental schema wherein volition in the face of novel stimuli was mediated through a linguistic control mechanism and experienced as auditory verbal hallucination.
Jaynes built a case for this hypothesis that human brains existed in a bicameral state until as recently as 3,000 years ago by citing evidence from many diverse sources including historical literature. He took an interdisciplinary approach, drawing data from many different fields. Jaynes asserted that, until roughly the times written about in Homer's Iliad, humans did not generally have the self-awareness characteristic of consciousness as most people experience it today. Rather, the bicameral individual was guided by mental commands believed to be issued by external "gods" — commands which were recorded in ancient myths, legends and historical accounts. This is exemplified not only in the commands given to characters in ancient epics but also the very muses of Greek mythology which "sang" the poems. According to Jaynes, the ancients literally heard muses as the direct source of their music and poetry.

I'm just discovering your work, er I mean your ART.
It is amazing. Literrally. I'm amazed, astounded by the beauty and the PERFECTION of nearly every* single photograph of you I'm looking at.

I mean, it's not a canonical perfection : they all have "something" that seems unique, a strange identity that is profoundly appealing to my contemplative nature.
I could be looking at most of them for minutes long, individually.

You have all my admiration (well, "your work have" of course^^)

* really writing this after the first 80s or so, which is quite a good glance I think.
