Fine Art Printmaking

When Apollo 14 astronaut, Edgar Mitchell, returned from outer space he tried to put what he had found out there into words. He found the term Savikalpa Samadhi. It means you see things as you see them with your eyes, but you experience them emotionally and viscerally. You experience them as with ecstasy and a sense of total unity and oneness.

It is pleasant to be in denial of infinity; it is easier to deny something you can not see the end of because it would make you realize how small you are. But what I have found is that the bigger a picture you have the smaller the problem seems. To a human an anthill being stepped on is no issue; if the earth were to stop spinning it would not be an issue for the sun. To see with the knowledge of infinity illuminates how very little anything matters. In this illumination it also shows that with all the problems and inconsistencies everything works anyways. Ants continue to build anthills and the earth continues to spin. Stars are being built using the same molecules used to form us.  We are a part of infinity just as an ant or a sun.  We are not made small, we are made to be infinite because everything out there is connected to everything within us.
