"Anatomy of a Selfportrait" is a fictional work. It is my try for deeper understanding the Theory of everything and it's branches (e.g. String theory) by simulating application some of Quantum mechanics rules on a Human behavior and psychology: for example Cycles, Chaos theory, InstantiationScale-invariance or Infinity applied on Brain activity, Will, Feelings or Abstract thinking.

Imagine there is a Will.
Will to make something, or to be something.
 
Now imagine the Will has been born, in time, to create, or to become 'the reality'.
For example, imagine there is a Will to create a Universe, or become an Universe,
or, that there is a Will to create a Human, or become a Human.
 
What will this Will become, if we let it live in time?...

This work represents anatomy of a human soul, mirrored in a selfportrait. It's a fiction work reflecting inter-connectivity of external and internal inputs and outputs, resulting in action and reaction, producing different points of view, gaining our lives in time.

This fictional work is my outline for philosophical thoughts concerning of scale-independency, resulting in neverending, slightly always moving and changing cycles, placed in infinity of a chaos, with a little helper: a perception of time.
time might not exist and our perception and  of everything around us derives only from percieving the cycles, not percieving the moment of Now, the time itself. It's an  Thoughts like these might have some impact on psychology and further discoveries resolving mysteries of the human temper, action and reaction or understanding.
 
 
 
 
 
Imagine three circles with the following elements/principles:

Heart circle // Will-Slavery-Fortune-Freedom
(exists as a pure energy, in atomic timing) 
Inner circle // Sin-Willing-Rise-Experience-Order-Tradition
(exists as an internal energy, not-changable, timing: short-run)
Outer circle // Chaos-Learning-Coincidence-Dreams-Hope-Fall
(exists as a group of external forces, changable, timing: long-run),
(In backward order/translation word 'changable' changes to 'not-changable' and vice versa.)

The 3 Circles
 
The three circles and it's elements=principles are in neverending, continuous connection. The three closed Circles are: Pure energy (Heart) , Internal energy and External forces and are 3 basic tools of capturing and rendering infinity of a chaos. Each of Circles is built out of 6 principles/elements, those flow bi-directionally in neverending cycling continuity. And apart from being a part of a cycle (=system) connection, circles and elements are also a part of spiral (=evolution) continuity.
 
Circles differ in scale and timing, creating the illusion of movement. The movement in general creates the possibility to percieve: measure and evaluate, and, thus this creates the possibility to measure also the human behavior and action, thus, and this might be interesting part: to predict our future by adjusting the things in present time.

Starting point
 
First impulse, the Starting point, is the base on which we start to build judging and evaluating, starting to build our reflection pyramid. Starting point reflects past interaction between Inner and Outer Circles in previous (inside) Spiral, and is either of a Logic temper (coming out of the Brain, evaluated by perception of history, now or fantasy), or of a Feelings temper (coming out of the Heart, evaluated by pure energy, feelings). The generator / transmitter of the Starting point is to one of a 5 senses human has + time + parents.
 
Logic and Feelings tempers could be interpreted as two different judging mechanisms, so our spiral of human behavior begins either with the Will (generated by the Logic), or with the Freedom (generated by the Feelings). And here's the point, the big question: either both impulses are right and true, or only one of them is the right starting point for bringing the life to an happy end? The answer is: both impulses could be the right ones, but need the opposite movement, opposite direction vectors, definitions or gaining statements.

Forward & Backward Direction of the Circles
 
Circles are built of principles/elements. You can connect them starting from the first element, but also vice versa, starting from the last element. Both connections produce the same, one and only Result: picture of continuity.
 
One result, but with two possible interpretation capabilities - meanings. It's caused by theorem that the Result (the fact written in time, in the future subjectively also denoted as 'the only one Truth', is objectively just one and no other, but being viewed from another time or place could be percieved, viewed or be said in bipolar meaning. In our case, the Result is built from 2 totally different Continuity Principles: the Cycle and the Spiral, of which both are true in their own meaning or viewed from another place or time.
 
The key to get the same result (a functional system, so this might be also the hint used by the Evolution Program) is to use Opposite Directions in meanings and acts (e.g. in statements, opinions, points of view, movements etc.).
 
Forward Connection is therefore built using words
"leads to" (also means "derives to", "is a parent of",
and Backwards Connection is therefore  built using words
"derives from", "is a part / child / subset of").

Inspiration for this work, aside that it's a reflection of my life, came from the new philosophical approach to the ontological nature of time, where time might not exist and our perception and measuring of everything around us is derived only from percieving the cycles, not percieving the moment of Now, the time itself. This Eternalism states it's an opposite to the presentist idea that only the present is real. I've found interesting that movements like these might have a future impact on psychology, or on resolving mysteries of the human temper or action and reaction figures.
 
That's why this illustration, growing into part of my manifesto.

The sketch was outlined into vectors using Wacom tablet, a bit of the working process is captured in this Making Of image sequenceAnd, what a coincidence! My big Thanks goes to Wacom's talent audition with their  visual selfportraiting contest called "Pioneer of now", as the deadline of the contest moved the project towards making it real.
 
 
 
Thank You.
