    What's 'wrong' with this picture?

    Event Horizon

    What do the two pictures below have in 'common'?





    My answer: In those picures (both of which are quite archetypal) one can still perceive the dividing line(s) between the polarities.

    This is IMO the hallmark of 'common' and dualistically balanced Nature.

    The way I see it, this is exactly the point where Nature mostly stops and goes no further, and our Art begins.

    Our Philosophical 'Event Horizon' goes beyond Yin-Yang and is Non-Dualistically balanced

    She can spin both ways...


    Donít let the delusion of reality confuse you regarding the reality of the illusion.

    For me it was clockwise at first sight (Right Brain?)

    I'll see if I can see it the other way around...

    Good one ! ! !

    Edit: I just managed to also see her spin anticlockwise, but every time I look anew, my default is still clockwise...
    And if I look at it in anticlockwise mode for a while, it automatically goes back to clockwise...

    I guess I'm almost left-brain-dead

    you canmake her spin anticlockwise by using peripheral vision: focus on something close to the image. when grasped, you can shift the focus on the girl.

    It can be a great exercise in hemispheric synchronization to try to make her turn only once in each direction every time, until she finally stands still

    That book is superb. I think that the medium of comics has much more to offer esotericists that we would guess at first!

    Moore and Moebius has some symbolic importance I reckon.
