The Colourful Life and Death of Mr Van Gogh.

 

USING ARTWORK TO UNDERSTAND EPILEPSY

An analysis of van Gogh’s epilepsy and emotionality must not obscure the fact that this great artist also had great strengths (4).

 

TEMPORAL LOBE EPILEPSY

Neurologist, Dr David Bear had seen Van Gogh’s art as ‘Reflecting philosophical and spiritual questing’

 

Van Gogh was born with a brain lesion’ and had a genetic predisposition to epilepsy and suffered from seizures which doctors, including Dr. Felix Rey and Dr. Peyron, believed to be caused by temporal lobe epilepsy.

‘In general, people with epileptic activity in the left hemisphere write and people with right brain epileptic activity engage in the visual arts, such as drawing, painting and sculpture’ ~Edith Kaplan (1924-2009), known as the “Mother of Neuropsychology” 

~Seized ~ Eve LaPlante

 

There has been fair agreement among experts about the personality traits observable among patients with epilepsy (192030–33). Vincent’s viscosity was manifest by his intense clinging to people he loved, his persevering on details, and a tendency to debate endlessly and to write excessively.

Hypergraphia is a condition causing one to need to write continuously; and is commonly linked to epilepsy. Some believe that the massive collection of over 800 letters Van Gogh wrote during his lifetime could be attributed to this condition.

‘I have nature art and and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough?’ ~ Vincent van Gogh

‘Just as we take the train to go to Tarascon or Rouen, we take death to go to a star’ ~

Vincent van Gogh

 

‘He is his art. His art is him. And it is pure and stunning. Vincent was one of history's best among greats because his art came from his soul. He painted with passion, and instinct and a place all of his own. He learned art from life’ ~ Cindy Kaplan ~ Art curator.

STARS IN MIND 
Rich lapis blues and sunbeam golds,
rivers of universe, curling in scrolls.
Whirlpools of passions immersed,
celestial air curves, harmonic swirls.

A cosmic orchestra of mystical lights,
eddy’s and swirls of colourful delights. 
Aligned within creation of human origin,
looking out, a fusion, as infinity within. 

Circles, rings, immersed in white codes,
amongst greens, violets, pink and golds. 
Melding of all polarities, returning to one, 
the seeing senses, to be reflected upon.

More alive and multicoloured than sky, 
wanting to share what he saw with eyes. 
Having the world of time in his hands,
pondering impressions of French lands. 

There were great movements at work, 
currents of dashed air, he could twerk.
Brushes and easel tucked under arm,
he had that kind of other worldly charm. 

His face was gaunt, elongated and slim, 
focused in stare, with beard all trimmed.
Galaxy of dreams within his twilight eyes,
musical rhapsodies, of mystical sighs. 

Emerged in the illusion of being alone,
as dimensional octaves were atoned.
His sacrifices both harsh and immense,
the purity of his innocence, ultra intense.

Poetically expressing earth to whisked sky,
famed for the brush strokes in Starry Night.
His striking angular asymmetry of face, 
was the visible sign of his epileptic grace.  

Some had called him mad, others a God,
our luminary artist, was Vincent van Gogh.

STARRY NIGHT 

“God is a comedian, playing to an audience that’s afraid to laugh.” Voltaire 

The religious meaning behind this painting has to do with a letter that Vincent had written some time before. In the letter Vincent wrote he described:

“A great starlit vault of heaven.. one can only call God.”

starry night vincent art art painting

This is the original ‘Starry Sky’ 

“At present I absolutely want to paint a starry sky. It often seems to me that night is still more richly coloured than the day; having hues of the most intense violets, blues and greens. If only you pay attention to it you will see that certain stars are lemon-yellow, others pink or a green, blue and forget-me-not brilliance. And without my expatiating on this theme it is obvious that putting little white dots on the blue-black is not enough to paint a starry sky.” ~ Vincent van Gogh

This seemingly abstract view is actually truer than mere words can convey’

CLOSE ENCOUNTERS
In the sweet surrender of silence,
the Heavens bid you acoustic alliance
The world, a, buzz of beautiful things,
the *Harmony of the Spheres* brings.

Pulsating waves, of pristine sounds,
a galaxy of planets, humming around. 
The blossoming of deep inner peace,
vortexes, fountains of light, released. 

As medicine in the purification of spirit,
sound is the healing of soul within it. 
Most ignore what they can’t understand,
but there is a secret logic in wonderland.  

Close encounters with celestial mind,

Our brilliant tactician of cosmology,

Musica universalis

‘They held the belief that the planets all moved in giant circles, and that when they brushed against one another, they made a sound. This music has come to be known as the Music of the Spheres. This music was not audible because it was a constant background noise’

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musica_universalis

Harmony of the spheres

The harmonic qualities of music can have a profound and beneficial effect on the human psyche (4), something that was perhaps realised more than it is today.

This is my dedication to Pythagoras and the genius of epilepsy

‘A possible link between epilepsy and greatness has fascinated biographers and physicians for centuries’ Pythagoras was believed to have epilepsy.

The Truth is In there

Image: The Matrix
The Truth is ‘In’ there
He knows there is much more to know,
to recover the essence of his soul.
Searching for the mystical and Divine,
inside the spiral galaxies of his mind.  

There’s nowhere to fly, no place to stand,
as he trudges through hedonistic lands.
A yearning felt in a ‘self’ he’s known,
hidden in the core of skin and bones. 
 
Before the hierarchy of collusion,
caused mass fears and confusion. 
That antiquated inhuman machine, 
obscuring, metaphysics in between.
 
His once strong spiritual source,
has been veiled behind dread’s door.
Restricted from the infinity of knowing,
yet, this adventurer, keeps on going. 

Searching higher perceptual states,
a mind, who tirelessly contemplates. 
The beauty of love, hopes and intuition,
coincidences, dream speak and visions. 

Multiverses of star’s in timely alliance,
beyond the cold frigidness of science.
To escape the matrix of fear and derision,
he joins fellow seekers on this mission.

In a myriad of interplanetary information,

While Gemini Season 2021, is a busy one, there are so many gifts on offer for us too. 

A good place to focus during this season is on your mind and how you are communicating to yourself and others. 

 “Clear your mind. Open your heart.” That is a good Gemini Season mantra.  

During a lunar eclipse, Earth comes between the Sun and the Moon, blocking the sunlight falling on the Moon.

She Was a Beauty

CURRENT MOOD

so I said to myself:

SELF:

and I knew it was me, because I recognised my voice.

What an amazing Super Moon.

She was a Beauty

I was up at 4am, when she shone through my bedroom window, to wake me up.

So I sat with her.

It’s those special moments when you are wide eyed and just soaking the awe of her brilliance, which reminds me…

Uh oh

Feeling pretty, pretty, this Pink Super-Moon, 

…           might make you all dance naked, IDK 

May the odds be in your favour 

EYES OF YOUR MIND
From secrets, buried in the ocean,
to Pink Super-Moon of the skies;
make time to dream.
… deeply breathe.
Rest your tired mind and weary eyes.
 
Weave the portals of ethereal rhyme,
seek the wisdom of your eyes, in your mind.
Health and restoration, be your ultimate goal;
To heal your inner wounds.
To recover spirit and soul.

Let your heart, enjoy inner peace,
this is how, your dreams succeed.
Within reflections and pulse of time;
the moon returns, as stars align.

Enter a new plane of existence,
as you remain steadfast and persistent.

This April, our moon is the first Super-Moon of 2021 and is considered to be one of the strongest of the year. 

Trust that it will definitely live up to its reputation.

The full moon in April is in the Northern Hemisphere is known as the “pink moon” as it is named after pink flowers, known as phlox, which bloom in the springtime. In the Southern Hemisphere (South America, Australia) it is known as The Full Hunters Moon. 

The celestial event is expected to take place just before sunset on Tuesday 27 April as the moon rises in the east and will be visible until it sets in the west the next morning.

Pleiades:

500 light years from planet Earth is a small cluster of seven stars located in the” Constellation of Taurus of the Bull” known as Pleiades. The cluster is actually the eye of the bull in the constellation of Taurus.

The distance to the Pleiades can be used as a key first step to calibrate the cosmic distance ladder. As the cluster is relatively close to the Earth,

The name “seven sisters” has been used for the Pleiades in the languages of many cultures, including indigenous groups of AustraliaNorth America and Siberia. This suggests that the name may have a common ancient origin.[40]

Taranis: 

Forming the profile of a Bull’s face is a V or K-shaped asterism of stars. 

In Celtic mythology Taranis was the mighty god of thunder. In Welsh and Breton the word for thunder is taran.

Associated with primal power and insight,

one of the brightest stars in the night skies.

 

Ursa Major of the Northern Polaris connects you, 

with the deepest affinity of your ancestral roots.

Mythology is filled with ancient tales,

the process of exploration, as changes prevailed.

 

Devoid of electronic systems in bygone times,

Druids were guided by stars; as planets aligned.

Living life for them was very different,

they appreciated the natural world as significant.

 

Viewed in reality from another perspective,

using symbolism to meet  potential objectives.

Ancients tell of the guiding ‘Light of King Arthur’

“Art” as Bear Man, God Artorius and mighty Warrior.

 

Primal shamanism was used in ancient times,

as their only navigation, sphere and guide.

Shining his ‘Bear light’ in dark of Winter season;

united this star with influence of animal; for a reason.
