Featured photo provided by Dmitri Tcherbadji, artsocket.com We live in a world filled with imagery, sound and now even really immense flurry of signals. All of these come to us in variety of formats, through movies, music, paintings and games. The real issue with all of this is that Art, from its original form has become completely hijacked, by an industry which sole purpose is entertainment in the name of profit. Now, this would not be so much of a problem, unless we begin to break down the messages of these “artworks” emanate. If we narrow it down solely to music, and if you own a well versed ear, music such are the types produced by mega stars of the day like Justin Bieber or Miley Cyrus, have little or no consciousness as to the perverse nature of the “music.” We can begin to break down a similar pattern appearing in photography, such are the photos used in several advertisements, such are the brands American Apparel, Diesel or Gucci. There is indeed a talent behind the hands and brains which go to produce these forms, whether it is photography or music, there is no doubt about this, but it is being corrupted. Current knowledge, such is the work of Prof. Emoto, have shown us that specific expressions can have defined consequences to water molecules. Perhaps, one of the most damning evidence was when Dr. Emoto recorded the effect of specific music on water molecules. For example, he recorded the effect of water molecules on heavy metal vs. a classical piece Amazing Grace, see below for the photos.

From the earliest recorded history, Art has been chiseled, modelled or painted through murals, megaliths or artifacts. If we look at the recent findings in Göbekli Tepe in Turkey, ruins which defy our previous understanding of how civilization began, archaeologists are uncovering ceremonial shrines which date back as far as 11,000 years ago, when our previous understanding has been that men were living in caves.
What the scientists are finding are well preserve carved gigantic limestone blocks which weight tons. In those early finds, as well as the finds in modern Iraq, the Sumerian ruins, we find art represented to those murals, pillars and artifacts. In all other early advanced civilizations such as the Mayans, Incan, Aztecs and Hindu, we find art forms. The big difference is that Art back then represented something higher, in the case of Göbekli Tepe, it had a sacred nature to it, perhaps one we will never understand this again. The sacredness of the art form used by ancient cultures is now largely being corrupted by modern interpretations. Art is an expression of a creative force, creativity is a direct representation of intelligence, the capacity to make multiple connection, such is the origin of the very word intelligere, Latin which translates into “to make connections.”
When we humans are expose to Art, if the Art is in the tradition of something more transcendent, it is supposed to take the person into an almost altered state of consciousness. I personally experience this when I listen to classical music or a beautifully composed soundtrack. Often, the newest and most beautiful forms of music are created for movies, now not all the movies have beautiful soundtracks, but some do. Sometimes people are not keen on being exposed to classical music, because sometimes this music instigates a change in us and touches your souls, when this happens often people are afraid and become prone to turn themselves away from this.
If you dare to experience this, I invite you to listen to this piece, which will most certainly have the effect I described above:

A friend, and the inspiration for this post, Dmitri Tcherbadji, whose artwork can be seen on his website at artsocket.com, Dmitri explains his artist view on art itself:
“Creativity is the greatest human strength. It is the reason we survive as a species. No other animal that I know of can think “outside the box” and continuously come up with new solutions which previous generations could not think of. Art is what inspires us to do these things as it is a live example of someone else creating something that has never been done before, beautifully.”
