Dark Radiance: The Web of Light
Carl H Smith and Sarah Janes
Carl H Smith and Sarah Janes
What is light and what is sight? How do the artificial light producing inventions of the last few hundred years influence our consciousness, our dreams and our imaginations? How do we see within our dreams? What are the mechanisms - biological and spiritual of ‘vision’. How are outer light projections diminishing, altering or potentially enhancing the dark radiance of the light within our souls? We used to worship the sun, now we appear to be worshipping light-emitting technology. Light from the world produces a negative impression when we close our eyes. Our powers of imagination and memory fill in the blanks and our dream visions are coloured light impressions that mimic the world we see outside, as they interpret the signals we receive from within. The elements within us - when we zoom into the most ancient and invisible level of our form - are entangled with everything else in the universe. We are the beads of dew on a spider’s web, we tremble, we reflect. The dream realm is a place to tap into universal memory, a place where no time exists, where seeing is woven into the fabric of the dream world, we see with every atom of its creation, we visit the realm we emerged from and the realm we shall enter upon death. Dreaming is training for the otherside. When technology produces a dream making machine that generates visuals from within the human, rather than projecting onto the human - we'll be going somewhere very different. Shall we go there?
