The Mind Cave or Paranoid non-bizarre delusion: surreal art-print, poster, book, desktop-wallpaper NeoSurrealismArt.com
What a sensational instrument human mind is! It is capable of most bizarre and astonishing tricks; it will create an illusion and then fall for it. Your fantasy might even convince you that you are mentally deficient. Of course, you’ll know at the back of your mind that it is not true, but our brain is full of surprises, indeed: it may try and utilize little “helpers”, such as phobias that can trigger your emotional responses and bring them to a totally different level. Phobias generally result from complex life experiences, when fear is transferred from one potentially threatening situation to another. Fear (“phobia” means “morbid fear” in Greek) has to become very repetitive and persistent in order to get the status of a phobia. It is only when your fears become irrational and ungrounded; when you have an inexplicable desire of avoiding certain situations, people, or places, you can clearly suspect yourself of having a certain phobia.
One of the well-known phobias is agoraphobia (not to be confused with agraphobia). It is an anxiety disorder, traditionally thought to involve a fear of being outside in an open or public place. A lot of symptoms of agoraphobia are similar to those of panic attacks or paranoid delusions. People experiencing paranoid thinking believe that others are after them and have delusional ideas about potential threats in certain scenarios which in fact have very little relevance to them. Paranoia was historically used to denote any delusional state, including so-called non-bizarre delusions – in other words, delusions about something quite realistic (like unfaithful husbands or government conspiracy), but highly improbable.
But where is this thin line that distinguishes a validated delusion from a flight of fancy? Even if you have an extraordinarily vivid imagination, don’t be afraid of ending up in a mental institution – there are a lot of cultural, behavioural, and even religious factors that add up to warranting a specific delusion. So, chances are you’re just an advanced user of your creative powers. Most likely.

How wonderfull image is this really... It reminds me,so much,the foyer in the Opera House from the Phantom of the opera.The waters remind the lake,which magically comes from the depths of his cave and his mind,full of rage,almost ready to drown them all.

to nick: The Rape of the Sabine Women sculpture by Giambologna, in the Loggia dei Lanzi in Florence, the sculptor is known for his marble and bronze statuary in a late Renaissance or Mannerist style.

what is the name of the statue in the Mind Cave, of the man carrying off the woman? I could swear I recognize it from somewhere. Is the angel with a sword an actual sculpture as well? This painting makes an excellent cover for a book I get published...

It is totally beautiful and at the same time misleading and confusing. It is like in my head –so many different and meaningful things are wandering around without a purpose, but seems like they are connected to each other and make total sense!
