Aesthetic

Art is the imposing of a pattern on experience, and our aesthetic enjoyment is recognition of the pattern.

Color directly influences the soul. Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the hammers, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another purposively, to cause vibrations in the soul.

Aesthetics is for the artist like ornithology is for the birds.

Leonardo Da Vinci combined art and science and aesthetics and engineering, that kind of unity is needed once again.

The darkening of the world makes the irrationality of art rational: radically darkened art.
