MAGICAL EGYPT 2 SERIES PROMO
Episode One - Prologue
Art is the Prophet
Art is the expression of the state of consciousness of a culture. Shifts in the mode of art are often the harbinger of a societies collective consciousness. Studying an ancient culture through aesthetics reveals things that about a culture that are often not discernible through forensic analysis.
Where science fears to tread and religion forbids us to look the artist takes over as the rightful tool guide.
Art is the Bridge
Episode 2 of Magical Egypt features Brad Klausen, who is well known in music circles as the creator of powerful artwork for major groups like Pearl Jam.
Klausen describes how his interest in the Mystery Teaching of Ancient Egypt led him to study the brain and become well-versed in neuroscience because what he found as he investigated various aspects of Egyptian shapes was that they faithfully depicted anatomical areas of the body and more specifically little known relationships and part of the human brain. If anatomy and energy are ineffably and intimately connected then an in-depth knowledge of the workings of the brain would be requisite for a real knowledge of mind and consciousness. Chance Gardner created exquisite graphics to show definitively that many Egyptian sculptures and paintings depicted shapes that are clearly similar to the parts of the brain, down to details like the pineal gland and its location. Klausen also suggest that even the earliest works of art known, like the supposed “fertility symbols” ofthe ancient world like the Venus of Willendorf actually depicted significant aspects of brain anatomy. Many of the “rogue archeologists” – beginning with Schwaller and also Gurdjieff – have suggested that this precise knowledge of the human form and its ability to “tune into” consciousness as a received or energy supports the Hermetic credo of “as above so below.”
