It's not enough to possess profound insight or ideas only you can understand. If you are to realize your knowledge, you must communicate your truth. Look at this image in three ways: 1) as one person grasping the green substance with both hands 2) as one person holding onto it 3) as one person passing it onto another. (Let the green substance symbolize anything worth knowing.) These three phases reflect the trinary function of the neuron, our most basic unit of biological intelligence, in its capacity for absorbing, storing and transmitting information &/or energy. All three phases must be active before natural intelligence canbe fully realized. When this happens, anything is possible.
Inside the labyrinth of human memory certain moments persist far beyond than the rest. Charged with the emotion of profound resonance, they form images that accumulate as the very sediment of our souls. The stone face represents a persona frozen in the past; an ego fixed on images no longer relevant to present time. The sparkler depicts the warmth, light and immediacy of the here and now. The soul emerges from the deep past to contact the current outside world. Spiritual emergence. When past life memory connects to present time existential conditions, memory grows loyal to present-time realities.
