Serpents From the Sun

Dissertation, The Union for Experimenting Colleges and Universities (1989)

Natural phenomena are directed by forces beyond bio-mechanical impulse toward some level of self realization. There are mythic parallels between the patterns in nature and the patterns of human consciousness. Through the thirteen illustrations making up the Project Demonstrating Excellence an overall pattern of purpose and design in nature is revealed through the human expression of archetypes and symbols. I present this essay and these illustrations as a teleology in order to aid in the re-establishment of awareness and sensitivity to the natural world. This essay and my illustrations or illuminations are designed to reveal a global mytho-logos by creating a fusion of cross-cultural artistic archetypes and symbols with their parallel scientific archetypes and symbols. ;The natural universe is intelligent, alive, orderly and human beings are informed by universal intelligence through spontaneous information transfer on a molecular/cellular level. Humans enhance, clarify and communicate this natural information transfer through myth, archetype and symbol. Myths, archetypes and symbols are thereby inherent in nature and are formed by cosmically created energy patterns. The relationship between life-form, myth, archetype, symbol and energy pattern is "cosmobiologically" inherent. The doctrine that patterns exist in nature is called teleology
