YOU'LL BELIEVE IN ANYTHING



balance is the art of continuously falling
(YOU'LL BELIEVE IN ANYTHING)
a trip down future memory lane
(just believe in everything)

Things that are just not so special anymore:

the earth, not the center of the solar system;

humans, cognitively, not the only animal to use tools and pass the mirror test;

humans, genetically, share 90% of our genes with a cat.

So, also, there's not a whole lot of difference between dreaming, fantasy, and rational thought.

You can construct your own island of insanity in a sea of junk science!

This is the dream we all dream of (oh, please!  oh, the jelly matrix!) 


(i spent most of 2020 working on just 5 pieces, most of which were started years ago, and this one is the first one of those that I'm posting.  more to come; i'm wrapping this all up before moving to a new special mode of working.)

acrylic & marker on paper on masonite


did the (G)god(s) make us or did we make the (G)god(s)? where did it start? where did you start? the aliens are already here. they never not been here. they will never be here. we are the aliens, speaking through thousands channels of information through allspace. new perspective is alien. each window a world. we are one and all.
(as if, identifying an advanced extraterrestrial species, we could understand anything about them. their jokes zipping lightspeed criss the sky whoosh.)
there's not a secret book with the alien revelation. it's in all the books. it's in the shape of the spaces between the lines, the voids like worms waving up and down the pages.  you can see the robots crawling through compression artifacts sometimes, unaware of an orthogonal existence.  let them be.   be still like professional wildlife shadow people photographer and make friends with the .
