Islamabad: The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind a faithful servant, but we’ve created a society honouring the servant that forgets the gift.
Groundbreaking discoveries are thin on the ground in the field of fine art, which is odd, given the amount of invention that goes on in there. The deficiency reflects Einstein’s words of wisdom:
“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind a faithful servant, but we’ve created a society honouring the servant that forgets the gift”. Our amnesia and all the world’s woes stem from our failure to develop a functional synergy with the timeless spirit of nature through our intuition.
Mark Dolamore proposes his Pyramid Art is the pointed instrument capable of bursting the bubble of our self inflicted servitude and more easily allow that shift of focus to take place. It demonstrates how liberation lies beyond reason, because it came from his lifelong pursuit of guidance from meaningful coincidences.
Synchronicity, the word used to describe these visitations of nature’s magic are something we might marvel at, but few of us pursue very far. The phenomenon came to Mark Dolamore at a crisis in his late twenties. It then stayed to influence his trajectory in life and art. The odyssey led him from London to Brazil, on to Canada, to Brazil again and then back to Europe.
At one point, while he was living in Sao Paulo, it dictated a radical change of artistic direction. That’s when he switched to a systems approach where mathematical structure provides evidence for something timeless.
Do you think it coincidence the Pyramid emerged precisely at the moment of the eighties economic crash: October 17th 1987, Black Monday?
The Pyramid offers meaning the like of which should not exist if the materialist paradigm is correct. Technically it’s merely the pattern of “interference” created when two binary coded data sets from the world’s oldest constantly used book (the I Ching) are combined through a simple formula, which includes a unique mandala Mark created using synchronicity as his guide.
There can therefore be no rational explanation for the apocalyptic meaning the symbolism contains, unless we consider one of the binary code sequences is Bronze Age and the other is twentieth century; so the meaning extracted must belong to an immortal spirit, hidden within the dynamics of space-time; the ideas and inspirations governing the evolution of civilization and the Jungian phenomenon synchronicity, formerly known as divine grace.
Pyramid Art reveals the character of this guiding spirit. The imagery looks like a language that could be human, but not as we know ourselves now. In the centre, the letter N is overlaid with an arrow pointing east, suggesting a compass. It points at the detailed, five line sketch of a butterfly flying east. The symbol suggests genius, fertility and metamorphosis from beast to beauty.
“It becomes truly uncanny when the Pyramid is rotated through ninety degrees, to point west. The compass then transforms into the first and last letters of the Roman alphabet, suggesting a London street guide and our route out of the labyrinth. There’s an association also with the beginning and end the Alpha and Omega, a symbol for eternity that features on Christian tombs under Rome,” Mark added.
While the butterfly now flies overhead, to the west, the change of direction through 180 degrees begs the question: Where did that extra ninety degree shift of direction appear from? Synergistic engagement through the butterfly effect of a tuning-in process is suggested. The butterfly is represented like a signature, drawn in one continuous line, changing direction just four times,” Mark Dolamore told Islamabad Telegraph.
Mark Dolamore’s art reveals feedback with nature as something we should all cultivate, since there’s no greater meaning than finding its sovereign spirit as a guide in life. This speaks to the Gaia affect we should be pursuing if we truly wish to save this planet from ourselves. It also challenges the notion of free will. The art demonstrates the freedom we think we own is a contradiction, when we consider paranormal experiences like déjà vu, parapraxis (Freudian slip) and synchronicity were its observational source, through the personal journey of perception research.
“ The Pyramid represents evidence of a timeless spirit we are all unconsciously controlled by, 24/7. The only place science has identified such timelessness is in the phenomenon known as quantum entanglement. This universal process is something fundamental, undoubtedly inherent in the way the mind works. If synchronicity is guiding feedback from there, as the artist claims, it will be confirmed through his collaborative systems artwork: Papolona (the Catalan word for butterfly). This papolona.guru project offers us all the chance to become co-artists, tuning-in to talk to nature’s deepest level, through a remote lab interface with the quantum field. Essentially it offers synchronicity on demand, after some sensitisation and practice,” Mark explained.
Science exposed timelessness in the mid eighties, giving it the uninspiring name: Non-Locality. The development came out of the late Irish physicist, John Bell’s experimental design work aimed at resolving the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen Paradox and the truth behind quantum entanglement. Bell suggested an unpalatable rationalization if Non-Locality was indeed proven, and since it was, it means everything in the universe must be predetermined. In other words the timeless, fifth dimension is everywhere, and through our internal questioning, intercedes synergistically in our destiny. We certainly should not let its dark side remain in control by ignoring it. Pyramid Art is the first discovery in any field to prove that principle.
