It's one of the strongest psychedelic drugs there is on this planet. I don't know if you've ever done any drugs but Salvia is absolutely beyond this world. The trip lasts only a few minutes but from my experience it might as well have been an eternity. The environment just vanished and my memory, ego and everything I knew including the knowledge of who and what I am was just gone. I was being dragged through an infinite amount of dimensions for an eternity and it was pure chaos. It was the most nightmarish experience of my life but also the most profound. When I came down from the trip it took me another 10 minutes to regain my trust that this reality is real; I just experienced something so profound that coming back into this reality just seemed fake. I used Salvia another 4 times after that but none of the trips were pleasant.
Anyway, your artwork reminds me of the second trip I had on Salvia. You have to understand though that in my trips I don't actually see anything but in a way I do. On Salvia you make associations which are actually not possible and you experience things you simply can't bring into words. Although drugs just alter your mind and don't actually bring you to God or anything like that, I'm convinced that it gives a deeper insight into reality. If you consider that your body is a biological robot which functions on certain chemicals, then by adding certain chemicals you alter the functionality of the machine which gives you a different perspective on reality as it were. I'm obsessive about astronomy, cosmology, physics (particularly quantum mechanics) and reality itself and Salvia gave me some insight into the universe. Anyway, in the second trip there was a divine being with me. I didn't see anything and yet in a way I had a sense of what it looked like. It was female and it was a sort of fractal interwoven with the universe. I was stuck in a loop of dimensions (again, some kind of infinite fractal) and the divine being told me (not with sound and yet it did communicate with me) that if I wanted to escape from the infinite loop I had to "clean up" the dimension. I did but right behind me the dimension grew back so I panicked. A friend recorded the trip and all I was actually doing was walking in circles for a few minutes.
I apologize if you're not interesting in hearing this. I'm telling you these experiences not to advertise Salvia but to explain how in a way I connected with the divine/abstract and your artwork reminds me of that. Have you seen the movie The Fountain? That movie is also quite like your artwork and my experience. If you haven't seen it, I strongly recommend it. I'm not a big fan of drama movies but The Fountain is just amazing.
As for the star, read the intro and look at the picture of this Wikipedia article: [link]
Neutron stars are absolutely crazy. They're an end stage of a regular star when it implodes but doesn't have enough mass to collapse completely into a stellar black hole. A neutron star is only around 12 to 20 km across but has the mass of a regular star so it's ultra dense. The gravity is so extreme that when you drop a coin on its surface the energy released equals an atom bomb.
