Imagi[c]nation 4D

Here’s a cartoon the Reverend couldn’t resist introducing to the fourth dimension this morning.

1. Use red/blue 3D glasses. View one eye at a time to see two different pictures.
2. If ‘b4’ is green or blue you need to look through the blue lens to see the Before picture. ‘afte’ will then be red so you look through the red lens to see the After picture.

Ideally 4D pictures will have some 3D effect when viewed with both eyes. Unfortunately this one doesn’t.

Here’s another version. This time ‘b4’ is red. Let us know which you prefer.

Danny Wilten Hubble’s Orion Nebula vs Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam

Danny Wilten has written a book called Orion In The Vatican showing his discoveries over the last two years analyzing pictures of the Orion Nebula and comparing them to great paintings. One that stands out for me is Michelangelo’s Creation Of Adam. This is a great example of  Fourth Dimensional Art with a time difference of nearly 500 years.

In 2006, NASA released a photo taken by the Hubble Space Telescope of the Orion Nebula showing great detail never seen before. But Wilten questions the claim that this is our first look at the nebula and superimposes great art works produced well before the images from Hubble. Along with the ebook , Wilten has made many videos showing how art corelates to images of the Orion Nebula.

The theory goes on to suggest that the Vatican has long had knowledge of our origins and God’s connection to Orion and that the artists have left these clues for us.

The Role of the Third Eye in the Fourth Dimension

The Third Eye in the Fourth Dimension (Original by Paul Agule)

We have spoken elsewhere about the Third Eye (here) but what exactly is it?

We still have no idea. But at the Church of the Fourth Dimension we continue investigating. This is a new religion, one more akin to science, where we admit we are wrong, that we do not really know and that we value each other’s ideas.

There are a handful of theories that keep recurring. One is that some people actually have a physical light sensitive structure behind they forehead as does the amazing Tuatara.

The Tuatara, the last dinosaur, has a third eye covered by skin between its two visible eyes.

Another is that refers to the pineal gland. During meditation this gland is activated and releases its signals to the body and brain causing a sensation of insight.

The theory that resonates with me is that the Third Eye is the brain. It is the act of remembering and/or imagining and comparing to instances. I take this activity for granted too often so I like to remind myself of it.

Much of the 4D art I create follows this idea. For example, in the red eye may be the past (b4) and the blue eye the future (afte). This is how I intend you to view the 4D images:

  1.  When viewing the image hold a hand in front of an eye at a time to understand each image.
  2. Then view them both together and soak it in. Or close both your eyes. Most importantly of all, think.

Thinking about the difference in the images or the time and space between each shot is the act of Seeing with your Third Eye into the Fourth Dimension.
