Blood Plants and Darkness

Blood, Plants and Darkness

This is a teaching about Shamanism for Creatives, about tapping Life Source energy of god-like Deities and how to identify them and their nature. Proximity and Affinity with source flow are often sufficient to become a conduit of and for that flow. This blog is therefore about Environment and our role as (an interactive) part of it.

Intro: Colour Palettes

Throughout my life as an artist I have been aware of the following complimentary colour palettes: 

Blue/Black & Yellow/Gold (egyptian)

Red Green Black (mayan)

Sepia Crimson Cyan/Indigo (pacific)

Ocher Red-Ocher Burnt-Umber (australian aboriginal)

Lime Tan Grey 
(I have avoided studying this as it indicates Fading, weakening with Antiquity, Aged, Forget)

Black White Red (nyarlahotep)

When these colours become apparent, you know that you are dealing with the nature or spirit of the themes invoked by them. Tone is frequency, is waveform, and has its own inherent systems. It can be measured precisely by mathematics and by sensitive intuitive empathy.

By making associations of different, apparently unrelated items which nevertheless follow the same colour spectrum, we can identify them as being related from behind the scenes, connected in the subconscious sub-atomic flows governing this organic and living multiverse which our creativity taps into in a process of mythopoetic manifestation. These associated colour series describe or connect us with specific Deities, each of their own mood, persona, objectives and purpose. 

Cyber Jungle : Itza (Mayan) means 'Urban Ways'

Working recently with Asmita Duranja on NeoCyberCity* (our zones 'Sukavathi' & 'Wabi Sabi') a 3D build project in SecondLife. One of the inspirations I have been using for it is a movie called the Gene Generation. The imagery and feeling from this film connects very strongly with the imagery from the Followers of Set / Setite clan of Vampire: the Masquerade which I was discussing on another blog; This Is This : Sukhet is Tapir.

* contrast between the 1980s and 2010s views of the future are as stark as black and white.

20th century 'future urban architecture' : Silver/Gray, Black, Neon, Sepia 
(grime, dirge, dystopian, industrial) 

21st century 'future urban architecture' : White and Green 
(clean, fresh, utopian, post-industrial)

The purpose of this current blog is to compare these two sets of imagery, discerning pro's and cons of their belonging to the same universe, that they are different windows into the same spectrum and that they combine to emphasize and enhance the identification . The other themes involved with these two sources and how they compare will be used to develop further insight into the persona of this thing along with its more traditional roots. 

Gene Generation


I very much like the relationship between these two images; 
'girl and city', one representing the essence of the other; 
which is exactly what "Ishtar is Itza" is all about.

Perhaps it is that by reacting to her environment, 
she changes and is changed by her environment; 
if so then the environment is crafting her as much as she, it.
