Excerpt from Quantum Psychology: How Brain Software Programs You and Your World. Robert Anton Wilson 1990.
On learning, which according to Wilson requires ‘motivation’.
‘ This variability of humans can function as the greatest evolutionary strength of the human race, since it may allow us to learn from persons imprinted and/or trained to see and hear and smell and think those things we have learned not to see or hear or smell or think.
Due to our habit of premature certainty, however, this variability seldom serves that beneficial evolutionary function. More often, when meeting somebody with different gloss or umwelt, we merely label that person “mad” or “bad” — crazy or evil — or both. This may explain most of the hostility on this planet, and most of the wars. ‘
One of many things I love about painting is the ‘learning’ component is ongoing. There is always the chance of a new discovery, a new feeling, a new mark, a new colour, a unique vibration. The imagination opens doors to new possibilities in this milieu of a world we all live in together, this tiny little bubble of magic with so much yet to discover.
