Painted as part of the Memorie Urbane urban art festival
When denied the earth our roots will intertwine and together we will take the water from the sky
Through a weaving process a single string can make up an entire fabric
This is the structure of the universe
We too are simply the fabric and structure of existence itself
We are just waves in this ocean
The Net of Indra is a profound and subtle metaphor for the structure of reality. Imagine a vast net; at each crossing point there is a jewel; each jewel is perfectly clear and reflects all the other jewels in the net, the way two mirrors placed opposite each other will reflect an image ad infinitum. The jewel in this metaphor stands for an individual being, or an individual consciousness, or a cell or an atom. Every jewel is intimately connected with all other jewels in the universe, and a change in one jewel means a change, however slight, in every other jewel.
Fractoids give shape to this idea; Fractal Geometry is a mathematical pattern that no matter how deep you go into the fractal, the pattern repeats itself over and over.
This speaks to the hidden interconnectedness and interdependency of everything and everyone in the universe.
Its also interesting to note that contemporary physicists are in general agreement that this ancient metaphor is indeed a good description for the universe.
Dr Masaru Emoto a Japanese researcher claimed that human consciousness has an effect on the molecular structure of water.
Emoto believed that water was “blueprint for our reality and that emotional” energies” and “vibrations” could change the physical structure of water
He performed visual experiments and although criticized for insufficient proof, these are still amazing and poetic; they show us something we already know inherently. (Look it up on YouTube , it’s pretty incredible)
