The original meaning of the word art simply meant skill. There was literally no difference between building a house and writing a song. They were all seen as arts. Art has always involved the interaction between the individual and the world around them. Art says we can. Law says we must, and they both interact with the same facet of life. In the case of art, the artist looks at the physical life from the point of view of a personal relationship to the world and the presences in it.
Art is human nature. The artist creates. The lunatic is created, made, forced. Science is busy making the man. Religion also is busy making the man. Anyone going sane yet?

Magic, art and religion were the sum body of human knowledge for quite some while. Each body of knowledge evolved, and as human experience of the world and each other grew, these understandings changed. Religion gave rise to secular law,… Seek More
They are discovering a great deal about the behaviour of the human mind. They will very likely unearth all the “science” there is to have from it. They will not understand the mind or its functions without art. It will… Seek More
Magical thought taught us that when man becomes predatory beast, it’s a bad thing. Werewolf. What does science seem to want to make humans? Describe humans as? They are busy working on ways to “bait” the hairless monkey, and they… Seek More
