Artistic Interpretation of Cosmology of Light is a third series of books that follows the 6-book Cosmology of Light and the 4-book Applications in Cosmology of Light series.

The purpose of this series is to further ground the concepts central to Cosmology of Light and make them more accessible to a wider audience through the medium of art. Thus far sixbooks have been published.

The first is Mandala Illustrated Story of Light which essentially illustrates A Story of Light with mandalas of which there are over 100.

The Mandala Illustrated Story of Light explores a journey of light into more and more concrete layers of matter and life, using mandalas as an aid to enter more deeply into the journey. The journey begins with the slowing down of light to c, which is posited to have resulted in a big bang from which the process of the creation of the layers of matter began. Light projects properties of itself in each surfacing layer of matter and erects pathways, as it were, by which all of existence is structured. An initial layer is that of the wavearchetype-electro-magnetic-masspotential spectrum. This is followed by quantum particles as light-property accumulations. These in turn create atoms, then molecules, and subsequently cells. Each of these layers has been architected by the innate four-foldness inherent in light. Human experience, including sensations, urges, emotions, feelings, will, and thought, and subsequently, the structure of civilization is also seen to be projections of the four-foldness innate in light. This story reveals a deep oneness and because of that an innate power that exists in all creations, and reveals something of the deep mystery of Light.

The second is Musings on Light which has over 140 graphical illustrations.

Musings on Light has been written at the end of a journey. This journey involved a mathematical articulation of the power in light summarized in ten books across two Cosmology of Light book series. It is a contemplative, primarily non-mathematical summary of many of the key concepts that are contained in the ten Cosmology of Light books. I intended for these musings to be meditative and to assist the reader to intuitively grasp what is meant by Cosmology of Light. To further assist with the meditation, each of the musings of which there are 50, is accompanied by a carefully designed illustration that will further allow the reader to enter more deeply into the body of Cosmology of Light.

Note that Cosmology of Light is intended to be a unified theory of existence from the point of view of light. Hence, it ties together possibility that exists in the native state of light where it is imagined to exist infinitely fast, to the process of multiple quantizations by which light projects itself in layers mirroring symmetrical fourfold realities, to the emergence of space-time-energy-gravity as a cosmic container at the time of the big bang, to the emergence of matter and life in layers of quantum particles, atoms, and cells, to the emergence of humans and culture and civilizations, so that physics, chemistry, biology, psychology, and sociology are all seen as faces of the one body of Light, always behind, immanent in all, and of which all are only richer and richer expressions.

The third is The Illustrated Oceans of Innovation.

We live in an infinitely innovative world. It is part of the very fabric of our existence. Being that this ability to innovate can express itself in massively different ways, there are surely, therefore a massive number of different approaches to expressing and framing innovation. Here is one approach to frame such innovation. It has both an artistic and scientific dimension to it. Artistic through necessity — in that when one tries to enter into the reality of what innovation is, there is no expression that can fully represent it, and hence art seems at least to capture the current surge of such a contemplation. But the medium of the art here is mathematical since for me that alone seemed to capture the richness implicit in this de facto aspect of reality.

The mathematics expressed here is, therefore, the art. And this will be abundantly apparent in the attempt, for instance, to capture the reality of a point-instant replete with all possibilities. Necessarily the mathematical notation and the resulting mathematics had to expand beyond current norms in mathematics. This may raise eyebrows amongst some mathematicians. But as with my invitation in other recent writings, I would welcome such individuals into collaboration to help capture perhaps in more robust ways what the artistic-mathematics here is seeking to express. I also mention that the Illustrator has written a piece relating the art in the book to Indian Art, which appears in the Appendix, primarily to do with the churning of the Ocean, an important event in Indian mythology.

The mathematics expressed here is also a science. This is so because it proposes a structure and process to innovation that can be corroborated through observation and experiment. In its scientific aspect this book starts with a derivation of some subjective qualities of light that are proposed to set up objective reality. There is a four-foldness that is seen in this analysis that becomes the basis of the entire mathematics through the rest of the book. Hence the development of the mathematics primarily proceeds through induction, subsequently employing deduction to derive a representative set of mathematical operators that must be true of any complex system.

This book is therefore an artistic-mathematical contemplation of the aspect of innovation-reality that exists in every point-instant of any complex system. To make the most of it my suggestion is to suspend any judgment and enter the unfolding contemplation to the degree possible. In this way you may see as I have seen, and this may enrich in some way your own point of view

The fourth is Emergence Illustrated.

The point of this book is to illustrate a ubiquitous four-fold functionality that exists in the structuring of this universe. What has emerged through the process of time, starting with the big bang to modern Civilization, is not random but is ordered around this four-fold functionality of Presence, Knowledge, Harmony, and Service. These core functional principles are observed in the nature of reality as set up by light itself. These principles subsequently animate several layers of emergence, starting from the ‘field’ level through the ‘quantum particle’ level, the level of ‘atoms’, ‘cells’, and even ‘civilizations’.

This book will present a mathematics that elaborates the relationship, the four-fold functional relationship, to be precise, which exists between one layer of emergence and the next. As such, the expression of the universe will be seen as unanimous with the expression of an evolving four-fold functional richness with more and more aspects and subtleties of the underlying four properties coming to the surface and shaping things.

The notion of emergence presented here should be coupled with the fundamentally different notion of emergence commonly thought to be true of complex adaptive systems in general. In the latter, emergence is seen as unpredictable in that, given the reality of quantum particles, say, it is impossible to predict that a fundamentally different and foundational physical form, that of atoms, would surface. Similarly, it is impossible from just observing the dynamics of atoms that something like cells would emerge, or at a later stage, even something as complex as civilization. By coupling the two notions of emergence, form can be seen as a switch of sorts, or a receptacle, by which certain functionality can manifest. In this view, the properties of Presence, Knowledge, Harmony, and Service take on a different meaning and put us face-to-face with a vast Complex Adaptive System that is our universe.

Many illustrations, 52 to be precise, appear throughout the body of this book. These have primarily been inspired by Indian mythological arts and introduce personalities, including Shakti, Sri Krishna, Surya, Shiva, Hanuman, Bhumi, Sita, Agni, Draupadi, Vayu, Jala, Mohini, Akash, and Ganga, amongst others. These personalities are well-known in Indian mythology and some of what they stand for fits seamlessly into the concepts of ‘emergence’ suggested by this book. For those who are already familiar with Indian mythology, this will add additional insight into the concepts of the book. For those who are being introduced to Indian mythology for the first time, some intuitive glance of the mythology may form due to the association of the illustration with the concept it has been coupled with.

The fifth is The Dawn of Flame-Beings.

This original 10-book mathematical series was based on a simple exploration: why does light travel at the constant speed of c — 186,000 miles per second — in vacuum? This exploration led to the consideration of the intentionality of c, and to the consideration of light existing at other constant speeds ranging from infinity to zero. Each constant speed of light was imagined creating a distinct world or layer in which space, time, materialization, and other dynamics were uniquely emergent and operated differently. The interaction of five layers of light existing at different constant speeds was then mathematically modeled to explain all the past, diversity, possibility, and future of known material life.

In the course of the mathematical modeling many unique beings and becomings were glimpsed — a mysterious creator with an eye that flashed light, a contrary beginning manifest as a dark bosom, titans, pralayas, world-embryos, a macro space-time-energy-gravity fourfoldness and its micro-counterpart the ever-present priest, battles between original darkness and forever emerging light, powerful meta and multi-function feminine and masculine aspects of the mysterious creator embodied as a She and a He, the earth as the place of an extraordinary courtship between them, the end of death, the birth of flame-beings, the growth and spreading of earth’s cosmic tree of light supplanting an original tree of life, the growth of flame-beings to far exceed their human origins in extraordinary ways, the seeding of new flame-being star-clusters, the changing of typal into evolutionary worlds, the birth of new quantum particles, new atoms, new molecular plans allowing Love to materially reveal more of its fullness, the glorious reign of matter one with spirit, the changing of cosmos, the continuous and fuller births of that original mystery manifesting in an unending display of splendor.

In other words, a full mythology was glimpsed in the cosmology of light, and in The Dawn of Flame-Beings abstract and impersonal mathematical and scientific concepts have been personified to begin to materialize powers and forces and entities integral to the history and future of the earth and cosmos. Further insight into these is provided by 100 meditative illustrations. For a more detailed description, click here.

The sixth book is Quantum Certainty Illustrated.

This book proposes a process to create sustainable history that involves entering into an activation-state. Such an activation-state opens a quantum-window into layers of reality formed by light moving at different speeds. Collective meta-functions, whether of plants, animals, or humans exist in these layers and it is the enhancing or creation of such a meta-function that sets into motion a precise process of space, time, energy, and gravity quantization, by which the nature of reality can be changed. As such there is no uncertainty at these decisive moments of history, but a quantum-certainty that is worked out by the mathematical possibilities present at the time, and as elaborated by the mathematical model presented in the book. This book is the sixth in the Artistic Interpretation of a Cosmology of Light book series, and the sixteenth book to do with a cosmology of light and is accompanied by insightful pencil drawings and other art totaling 96 illustrations in all. The cover illustration depicts the inevitable precipitation and growth of diverse forces set into motion once deep yearning activates quantum certainty. The Rudra aspect is there to clear the ground so that space-time-energy-gravity quantization activated by quantum certainty, becomes fruitful. The Shiva aspect is there to continue to maintain some order until the next level of equilibrium is established. A more detailed description can be found here.

The seventh book is Super-Matter Illustrated.

Through a play of Light, its codified properties project out to create layer upon layer of fourfold complexity. Space, Time, Gravity, and Energy are perhaps the first layer of Light’s codified properties and emerge as fundamental to cosmic dynamics to date. Fields such as the electromagnetic field form a second layer. Then quantum particles, atoms, cells, and all the complexity of Natural and Human history form subsequent layers, all the while continuing to materialize the inherent fourfold richness inherent in Light. The fate of such a continued fourfold development leading to a foundation of super-matter now lies in our hands. The scales of a quantum-cosmic balance depend on the extent to which a continued and cohesive space-time-energy-gravity quantization, fueled by will and other faculties, becomes operative. Such quantization spurred by the need for functional-richness results in super-matter.

This is the illustrated version of Book Five in the ten-book mathematical treatise on the destiny of the cosmos. In this continuing philosophical-mathematical exploration anchored by the apparent reality of the constant speed of light, this book reveals the possibility of the formation of a critical super-matter layer that builds on the foundation of the innate creativity that drives cosmic development as explored in Book Two, the inevitable emergence of more complex forms of fourfoldness as explored in Book Three, and the mechanism of quantum-certainty instrumental in triggering comprehensive space-time-energy-gravity quantization as explored in Book Four. All concepts and stepping stones from the previous books have been fully integrated into this book, which additionally is illustrated by 122 insightful drawings that depict viscerally what has been expressed by concept and mathematics. The series and this book shed insight into a possible model of quantum dynamics that cuts across visible and invisible layers of existence, also offering systems-based insight into the persistent reality of quantum computation that animates the universe. The philosophical-mathematical approach in effect approaches the modeling of quanta and computation from the top-down and its insights will need to be considered by all who are interested in fully grasping the possibilities opening by penetratiion into the quantum levels.
