The Secret Writing in my art is my interpretation of the occult symbol system I saw on a mystic journey in 1971 at the age of 19. Secret Writing has now been reported by many psychonauts. Of the infinite variety of symbols I witnessed washing over all surfaces and wafting through the air, I selected twenty letters, an alphabet I placed in a chosen order. Personally, I feel that my letters are meant to be untranslatable.
Their meaning to ME is as ineffable symbols. Through symbols we perceive and interpret all things. When we see a person with grey hair, we may interpret grey hair as a symbol of a loving grandma, a witch, wisdom, senility… Our minds interpret meaning through our unique life experience.
The book Xenolinguistics by Diana Slattery covers reports by psychonauts on the appearance of secret writing within the psychedelic experience. I wrote the forward. Diana has attempted to channel and translate the meaning of her language system. I have intentionally avoided creating “made-up“ meanings, feeling that my assignment of meaning would be random and not universal, not authentic and rather a perpetration of knowing what cannot be known.
The symbolic meaning of my language refers only to the ineffable spirit of receiving information that cannot be known literally - the language of The Creator.
My language is art that points to the conversation of symbolic interpretation in every moment of our lives. We see through a judgement mind of symbols. Everything in the visible universe is perceived through symbolic “windows” of personal interpretation, unique to every individual.
Thanks for writing and wondering with me.
