Myths have lengthy been thought of the top linkage among nature and tradition, yet we carry that they're greater than this. The mythogene, that is our conceptualization of a connecting constitution, hyperlinks topic and item, heritage and transcendence, yet peculiarly is the blueprint for creativity. the amount bargains, hence, with the cutting edge belief of the writer as to the method of creativity. Van Gogh had a revelation as to how the whirling cypresses and dancing stars may examine evening. those constructions, which include a complementarity among his reviews and longings, are then ingrained within the creative medium. in view that his inventive efforts have been real, his ecstatic (in the Greek experience) frame of mind, extricated itself from diachronic historical past and soared onto synchronic eternity. this can be how we understand his paintings as clean, exhilarating and significant as though painted this present day; it's the verbal exchange inside of eternity of genuine artwork from artist to viewers. the quantity additionally offers a type of varieties of artists as regarding their artwork and offers and leading edge concept as to the hyperlink among insanity and creativity.

Example text

A Bedouin wailing in the desert does not necessarily intend his monotonous incantations to reach anybody’s ears, but only wishes to broadcast his inner moods, passions and beliefs, which then hover aimlessly over sand dunes and searing undulations of light, to be born and scattered by the scorching winds of the desert. Artaud meant to communicate his surrealistic adventures, but he failed because he assaulted his own cognition, and that of others, with awareness-numbing rituals. 41 This was impossible, however, because communication is effected, if at all, by symbolic interaction between cognitions.

This inner recognition, very much like Abraham Maslow’s peak experiences, has to be conceived as mythogenes of longing and experience, which are to be ingrained in the artistic medium as the communicable expression of the artist in our arsenal of concepts. The revelation coming from the Authentic Domain, which is the summa summarum of mythogenes and mythologies relevant for a given individual, is perceived maieutically by the artist’s inner self. This call is very much like an inarticulate cry (perceived within the inner self).

The very act of ingraining the mythogenes into the medium and transmitting it to a receptive soul bridges the ontological abyss between the artist and his objective human and metaphysical surroundings. The dialogical process of art, by itself and in itself, imbues meaning into the otherwise absurd existence of the artist and his audience. Prima facie, art seems to be a prime medium of communication. Yet, as we stated earlier, the music conceived and created by the composer is bound to be perceived differently by each individual, depending on his mood and psychosocial configuration at a given time and place.
