See Me, Touch Me, Feel Me
To survive, you must form your picture of the world by learning to recognize faces, expressions, colors, movement, danger, and so on.
Do you remember how many years you spent learning the alphabet and how to read? Art appreciation demands no less. Apart from social conditioning it is up to each one of us—artist and patron—to evolve beyond the prosaic, to see anew, to sense the substance beneath the surface, the art beneath the avant-garde.
While the eyes, like a movie camera, take non-judgmental snapshots of information, the ego provides bias, and the mind interprets for relevance.
Feeling truth, however, takes place in the purity of consciousness.
