Art of sculpture and painting recognition of unities and similarities: Rhythms and analogues, differences The character of space The definition of space The penetration of things into space The nature of illumination It's determination of what we see (as opposed to what we know by vision from a static point in (space) The way our reading of experience is controlled by the means by which we perceive.The thing any scientist discovers is beyond the reach of direct observation. We can not see energy, attraction of gravity, flying molecules of gases, luminiference ether, nor the explosions in nerve cells. It is only the premises of science, not its conclusions which are directly observed. For me, a work must first have a vitality of its own.
It can no longer be maintained that the properties of any one thing in the universe are independent of the existence or non-existence of everything else. It is, at last, no longer sensible to speak of a universe with only one thing in it. Reality cannot be found except in One single source, because of the interconnection of all things with one another. The judgment, for instance, that there is a three dimensional world is, Brentano believed, so widely confirmed as to be....
What we observe as material bodies and forces are nothing but shapes and variations in the structure of space. Particles are just schaumkommen (appearances). The world is given to me only once, not one existing and one perceived. Subject and object are only one. The barrier between them cannot be said to have broken down as a result of recent experience in the physical sciences, for this barrier does not exist.
It must certainly be allowed, that nature has kept us at a great distance from all her secrets, and has afforded us only the knowledge of a few superficial qualities of objects; while she conceals from us those powers and principles on which the influence of those objects entirely depends. When we look about us towards external objects, and consider the operation of causes, we are never able, in a single instance, to discover any power or necessary connexion.
