4.BISMUTH CALEIDOSCOPIC PRINT ON SILK - CALEIDOSCOPIC MIND
BISMUTH CALEIDOSCOPIC PRINT ON SILK
Another night arrived and I knew I`m experiencing again sleep paralysis. Suddenly I have sensed the appearance of 4 strange small beings around myself and I knew them to be somehow a reflection of my fears. It felt cold and I sensed a metal taste, quite unpleasant. This time again, something like a body technology was activated, also related to the lower spinal cord. Information seemed to travel the way up, something heavy, like thousands of watts being pushed trough an invisible cable. This felt totally wrong and I thought I`m lost, as there was no possibility to protest or interact. My husband was lying next to me, so my first thought was to hope for him not to get involved. This spark of love changed actually everything, making the previous setting disappear like a nightmare, dissolving into nothing. I opened my eyes but continued to see intricate kaleidoscopic patterns, appearing like a blueprint of reality. Later I have read Graham Hancocks book Supernatural, where I have found out I was not alone to experience a different reality. These experiences can happen naturally under certain conditions and a predisposition or can be induced by drugs as DMT in different forms – Ayahuaska being the most common one.
DMT, Dimethyltryptamin is manufactured within the pineal gland, that tiny cone shaped organ, considered as well to be the third eye. The pineal gland is as well considered to be a portal opening the way to other dimensions. Mostly shamans make use of these substances to get in touch with the spirits of nature, to obtain important information for the community.
This kaleidoscopic print I have used for shirtdresses in combination with black silk is an analogy for opening one`s consciousness to complex geometries underneath the visible reality.
