Tarot Card Meanings Our Inner Voice


Tarot Card Meanings Tarot card meanings as an inner voice is one of man’s techniques of attempting to put order and rhythm into what appears to be our chaotic and unpredictable lives.

The images we are presented with are generally what we need to see. In divination, we are challenged to see the reasons why we are where we are and what we need to […]

Sphinx, Mystery is Energy Sphinx, Mystery is Energy, a life journey. Oil on canvas, 48 inches by 72 inches, 2010  Buy Original Painting from Saatchi Art She  expresses Mystery is Energy and when she loses her mystery she dies.

Origin of Human Consciousness Dramatized In Ancient Myth and Visual Art


Origin of Human Consciousness Dramatized In Ancient Myth and Visual Art I was prompted to create this post after reading The Origin of Consciousness in the Break Down of the Bicameral Mind by  Julian Jaynes and recognising similarities to my own theory of Dream Linguistics.

Tarot Moon, the card corresponding to Pisces, therefore graphically illustrates this […]

The Spell


Magick Spell I Called And Something Came Magick Spell oil on canvas, 20 inches by 16 inches, 2017 Purchase the original painting at Saatchi Art The appearance of the spirit, which can often be seen in incense smoke, has close parallels to what is known as pareidolia, to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern, or the human ability to see shapes or make pictures out of randomness.  The concept of pareidolia leaves us wondering whether the spirits are within or without, or maybe both.
