Guided Meditation or Path to Fractal World Enlightenment
Guided Meditation or Path to Fractal World EnlightenmentSamadhi in Buddhist and Hindu's religious practice is the highest degree of meditation. Samadhi translates as integrity, association, implementation, completion, compilation etc. In Hindu and Buddhist meditative practices, guided meditation or mindfulness is a state in which the very idea of one's own individuality (but not consciousness) disappears and the unity of the perceiver and the perceived emerges. Samadhi is that state of enlightenment achieved by meditation, expressed in the tranquility of consciousness, the removal of contradictions between the inner and outer worlds, the fusion of individual consciousness as a microcosm with the cosmic absolute, as a macrocosm. State of enlightenment allows a practitioner to comprehend the very physics of the universe.
We live in a world of two-dimensional surfaces, outlined by one-dimensional lines constrained by and three-dimensional objects. That is a quite comforting, understandable world of reasonably simple dimensions. Is there more to that? Benoit Mandelbrot pointed out in his mathematical book The Fractal Geometry of Nature (1982), - Clouds are not spheres, mountains are not cones, and lightening does not travel in a straight line. The complexity of nature's shapes differs in kind, not merely degree, from that of the shapes of ordinary geometry, the geometry of fractal shapes. Self-similar patterns are frequently observed in Nature.
The key in the description of the fractal concept is self-similarity. The fractal system repeats the configuration of the whole system within the general form or, with some changes, replicates the pattern infinitely. We are constantly meeting with fractals in nature. For example, stones, mountains, crystals, plants, clouds, waves, ice, islands, continents, the surface landscape of the planet and the bottom of the world's oceans, star, planetary and molecular systems, the structure of man, animals, the microcosm ... Similarity could be an absolutely accurate pattern of reproduction. Fractal art exists for a long time, subconsciously in non-digital forms and up to the era of computers. One may find it looking at the paintings of Leonardo da Vinci, K. Hokusai or M. Escher.
The neo-surrealist artist George Grie, includes fractal art in his digital paintings, in which the fractal image undergoes changes as a result of external art manipulations, rendering outside the fractal generator program. Fractal manipulation is a fairly common practice in the work of surrealist artists. The author of the painting Meditation of Awareness or the Path to Enlightenment, Fractality of the World, experiments and explores the new aesthetic possibilities of artistic practice and tries to understand the essence of fractal art from the standpoint of philosophy and cosmology.
The artist's compositions are similar to daydreaming, all that is seen as a solid and immutable substance, in fact, a constant, continuous process of continuously moving and interacting elementary particles. The most interesting thing is that the movement itself is just an illusion. A more detailed examination reveals that the human body, water, shore, clouds, architectural facade and planets consist of tiny, absolutely void particles and do not exist in reality, but have the information energy void and existing according to their own laws.
The author raises the questions of who we are, what we are, if we disassemble ourselves to the smallest particles, and then we’ll try to reunite all this into the image of ourselves. How can something move, something that does not exist? And what then generally everything is? The picture shows that only by opening your soul, adjusting one's consciousness to co-creation with the intelligent cells of the void, one can become a person working in conjunction with the field of Consciousness. And through their concentrated actions create the future for themselves and their environment, create their own new world within the framework of the existing society, and transfer their lives from the rank of chance to the path of conscious creation.*
