As the outside world marches into monocultural terrain, people everywhere are eating toxin covered genetically manipulated foods no matter their evolutionary need, cultural diversity inside the body decreases, as in and on plants, the soil, in ecosystems and environs.
An intense proliferation of literature surrounds the importance of microbial diversity for healthy guts. People’s own personal cultures are decreasing in quality as many forget the body’s intrinsic capability to self-regulate and self-heal.
Science continually moves deeper into specialisation leaving heightened need to find ones own way to proceed before wading through vast swathes of literature where much may hide or accentuate vital pieces of information. Contemporary science is indeed an endless literature that continually disproves and approves of itself.
To acquire this scientific knowledge is to have access to, read and understand particular sets and subsets of words in certain orders and contexts with every day language housed amongst very complex word root structures with many hybrid and exotic sounds. This language can be used detrimentally affecting other areas of consciousness and understanding such as we see, for example, in relation to the cyclical nature of women’s bodies.
Just as there is double meaning and depth in simple phrases known to a native tongue, there is a double meaning embedded in the context of language and acquisition of knowledge through today’s scientific procedures.
In coherent cultures, I ask for insight into the evolution of bacteria, to imagine how these relationships arose and gain insight into my own cultural ground within. From this seat of intention, intuitive art practise allows messages to arise giving clues where to delve deeper and target research and retrieval exercises by learning to ask the right questions.
To allow the answers to rise and distill from within.
Often in science, assumptions may be subtlely implied through word use and it is easy to forget nothing is set in stone, these are theories.
What questions would you ask?
The scientific documentation of microbes grows daily as methodologies and techniques improve, but will it ever be possible to figure out the true interelationality of an entire cell in natural conditions? As knowledge increases, possibilities increase and this fractal nature becomes harder to measure. The true map of microbial nature may never be complete but is it enough to understand ones own unique characteristic relationship with ones own microbial nature? Vibrant health is closer than you think as coherence is exquisitely mastered by the bodies multiple gradiential physical and metaphysical experiences.
With intention and commitment, intuitive art practises can help one remember there is more to life than words, literature and knowledge. If you wish, you can find all the intelligence and insight you need emanating from the vibrational cultural grounds of your existence.
Here I invite a new way to learn, to foster allegiance, to ask oneself first, and if that doesn’t work, you can always back it up with science.

Inspired by the natural world with a background in science, I make intuitive art with paint and mixed media then process images digitally to share educational stories and ideas.
By using art to explore science, enhanced learning and insight can arise through both the creative process and the end result.
This journey proceeds in spontaneous and organic ways at present unknown, as cultures collide and relate, taking each other to higher states, it is a work in progress.
