astral dimensions with colorful sky
Astral lands ( 1999 • digital • 4000 x 3000 px )

My early attempt at astral art. Here I wanted to illustrate how an astral realm may look like. A serene and beautiful place with pools of peaceful and mysterious gardens. While working on this piece I was reading The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot. A fascinating book describing the holographic paradime based on the work by the quantum physicist David Bohm and the neuroscientist Karl Pribam. The author presents how the holographic model can be used to explain a whole range of unusual phenomenon like UFO abductions, telepathy, miracles, astral projection, near death experiences, precognition, and many others. One passage that I found to be particularly interesting with regard to astral projection (aka out of body experience) was spherical vision:

"These nonphysical senses are further hampered by the constraints our own self-limiting beliefs place upon them. A number of talented OB travelers have noted that once they became more at home in their second body they discovered that they could "see" in all directions at once without turning their heads. In other words, although seeing in all directions appears to be normal during the OB state, they were so accustomed to believing that they could see only through their eyes - even when they were in a nonphysical hologram of their body - that this belief at fist kept them from realizing that they possessed 360 degree vision."

Back in 2000 this image was on the cover of a Polish edition of the Nexus Magazine. It also appeared in the FREAX - The Brief History of the Computer Demoscene - The Art Album art book.
