Biogeocoenosis of the G.A.I.A.N. - M.I.N.D.

"Biogeocoenosis of the G.A.I.A.N. - M.I.N.D."

The acronym stands for: Gaian Artificial Intelligence Adaptive Network - Meta Information Node Dome

And biogeocoenosis is a word that means deep ecological association of life and the physical earth processes. 



Basically it's like a future version of the internet where artificial intelligence has emerged and converged and become one with natures intelligence and created an "Earth mind" or "Gaian mind" that surrounds the planet as a live-able and alive geodesic stratosphere city exo-structure - that communicates with the biological and geological processes of Earth to self-engineer more earth like biosphere planets in space. The color spectrum represents the information storing as a kind of light grid around the planet - playing with the ideas of "Mother Nature as it's own technology" and "technology as it's own Mother Nature."

Bio-Vision

"Bio-Vision"
10" x 10"
Acrylic on wood
***
Initially drawing this piece it struck me how it could work as a symbol for the unity of the organism-field relationship, in resonance with the universal archetypes or sacred geometry, and the creative, emergent evolutionary self-organizing forces of bio-logic working at all scales in Nature.

"Bio-Vision" is about the philosophy of the natural intelligence of life, at work in the evolutionary sense-making of natural selection and the self-organization of forms and systems of life through bio-logic.  

"Both leaves and eyes have learned how to make sense of photons of light." - Simon G. Powell
***
  Breakdown of the symbolic meaning:
Vesica Pisces - (overlapping circles) an archetypal symbol for creation, emergence, convergence, birth, a portal -  sacred geometry of higher dimensional archetypes, the cosmic code, generative laws of physics and life, levels of universal dynamic form attractors 
The Field - the extended spacial influence of the archetype on the organisms relationship with the environment through the evolutionary processes of bio-logic  
The Eye - symbolizes the emergence of intelligence or awareness within and through Nature  
The Leaf - symbol for Nature and the total organism/field-environment integration as an emergent whole/part self-organizing natural intelligence in resonance with the archetypal

Another way of thinking about this is how the natural intelligence of life emerges harmonically in a universe of life generative physics and archetypes.

"Nature, the Universe, can be seen as one vast system of self-organizing intelligence, biological evolution being one particular way in which this intelligence gradually but inexorably expresses itself." - Simon G. Powell 
"As intimated, my chief contention is that evolution through natural selection is a process that displays the chief characteristics of intelligence. I also contend that the laws of Nature, which facilitate evolution, are likewise bound up with intelligence. I portray this new perspective in terms of *natural intelligence (thus making it distinguishable from, say, artificial intelligence or human intelligence)." - Simon G. Powell 
"What if life were not a cosmic accident but the essential reality at the very heart of the elegant machinery of the universe? What if Darwin's principle of natural selection were merely a tiny fractal embodiment of a universal life-giving principle that drives the evolution of stars, galaxies, and the cosmos itself? What if the universe were literally in the process of coming to life?" - James N. Gardner  
"I am suggesting that there may come a time when physics will be willing to learn from biology as biology has been willing to learn from physics, a time when physics will accept the endless diversity of nature as one of it's central themes, just as biology has accepted the unity of the genetic coding apparatus as one of it's central dogmas." - Freeman Dyson 
"The properties of matter and the course of cosmic evolution are now seen to be intimately related to the structure of the living being and to its activities; they become, therefore, far more important in biology than has previously been suspected. For the whole evolutionary process, both cosmic and organic, is one, and the biologist may now rightly regard the Universe in its very essence as biocentric." - Lawrence J. Henderson 
"Apparently there is a great discovery or insight which our culture is deliberately designed to suppress, distort and ignore. That is that Nature is some kind of minded entity. That Nature is not simply the random flight of atoms through electromagnetic fields. Nature is not the empty, de-spiritualized lumpen matter that we inherit from modern physics. But it is instead a kind of intelligence, a kind of mind." - Terence Mckenna 
"Nature is not mute; it is man who is deaf" - Terence Mckenna

Metaverse: Geometries of Cosmos

"Metaverse: Geometries of Cosmos"
20" circle 
Oil on canvas

My visual concept model of the multi-verse black (w)hole. The inside of the black whole is at the center, containing an entire universe at macro level, and the black hole is the transitional light perimeter, with the birth of another universe expanding outwards, with the process embedded fractally within itself in the toroid form. 

For me this takes care of the whole "edge of the universe, but what's outside that?" problem. The black hole could really only be a dimensional threshold that births universes. 

It could be a film, with the membrane of the sphere as the black hole event horizon, with universes on both sides, and with a third universe that's not visible which has the galaxy with a collapsing star that created the particular black hole for each one. 

This would be a 2d slice of a 5d meta-verse concept, or a place to see the before and after stages of all the universes from.

"The cosmological picture that emerges--a map in time as well as in space--is not what most of us expected. It offers a new perspective on how a single "genesis event" created billions of galaxies, black holes, stars, and planets, and how atoms have been assembled--here on Earth, and perhaps other worlds--into living beings intricate enough to ponder their origins. There are deep connections between stars and atoms, between the cosmos and the microworld. . . . Our emergence and survival depend on very special "tuning" of the cosmos--a cosmos that may be even vaster than the universe that we can actual see." - Martin Rees

Pupil Metamorphosis of Planet Earth

"Pupil Metamorphosis of Planet Earth"
12"x12"

Finishing up another Earth biogenesis piece.. The creation of a biospheric vision of space travel helps to align a deeper unified evolutionary vision of nature, humans, technology, and the cosmos…

"Propagule formation, the "seeding" of the biosphere prior to its dissemination, is as natural as a larval metamorphosis, the shedding of old parts in preparation for a new life. Language, technology, humanity, physicality, meaning--all of these are included latently and blatantly in the workings of the Earth, in the global regime. Each successful encapsulation of Earth life in the technological extrastructure of a biosphere represents an Earth "seed"--part of a pod-forming or blossoming process that is more central to life than are plants, fungi, or animals. By forming biospheres, Earth enters a stage of propagule formation preparatory to dissemination and cosmic metamorphosis. In such a dissemination and metamorphosis it becomes clear that technology was never anything but natural." - Dorion Sagan
