Forgotten knowledge

Connection of science, art and philosophy

It was a period when art, science and philosophy were not separated when one interacted with the other. This knowledge was passed down by Pythagoras, Socrates, Diogenes and many others. Their knowledge came from nature, just as all the beauty and majesty of the Renaissance genius da Vinci came from nature.

We are all connected, and everything is connected.

I looked for the answers that came to me in myths, philosophy, modern science, old records, and works of art. But most answers I found in nature and through observing the world around me. One of the important things I discovered is that subjectivity does not exist. Or rather, it exists only as a result of ignorance. When we know, when we understand, it remains only objective. This question anticipated me the most in the visual language and fine art, where everything is supposed to be subjective. However, I knew from experience that if I know what I want to say and the language I speak, the work of art is not subjective (personal, emotional).

The initial stage of my project is the observation of nature and an attempt to prove the objectivity of artistic expression. If there is a connection between shape, colour and proportions and herbs’ effect on a person, then it is not all subjective. To begin with, I will take the basic criterion for the research from the four beautiful arts of ancient Greece, numerology, geometry, music/colour and cosmology or music of the spheres. Love for nature is at the forefront. But perhaps even more important is the love of wisdom, or philosophy (from the ancient Greek φίλος, phílos: “love”; and σοφία, sophía: “wisdom”), as the keepers of forgotten knowledge called it. A man is happy when his curiosity embraces fear and silences it. And only the love of wisdom remains.
