4 "Labyrinth of the mind"

18 0 0

Things as they appear every day and as they are engraved in our memory, facts, and occurrences as they are perceived by senses, create an intricate labyrinth in the mind. The way how things are experienced in our environment and how they react in the arsenal of our imagination creates a torrent of inspiring ideas that flood the speedy highways of our brains.

The brain absorbs all the phenomena of our daily life, constructs a maze of countless corridors that run through our mind and opens numerous unconscious wishes and subdued desires, which are processed in the labyrinths of our being.

Giving an abstract representation of the phenomena, which we encounter in life, is an illustration of "phenomenological painting". By letting things come with Heidegger releasement, with a Chinese attitude of Wu-Wei, with a spirit of "let it be, let it be" of the Beatles, all the elements in the labyrinth of our mind eventually fall into place.

By assembling in our mind all the consequential facts we have lived through and by reviewing, appraising or sometimes idealizing the numerous key points of the past, authenticity may gradually mutate and actuality decay at last. At that point in time, we are to experience a maimed factuality.

If we make a fly-on-the-wall review of our history and connect the significant scenarios from our memory, we can develop a comprehensive pattern of our identity that throws a whirl of light on the secreted framework of our life.
