The general idea behind Thoughts in Perspective began to take shape on January 2009 with a blog I used to have, named "Mistere si Dezvaluiri" (Mysteries and Disclosures). That basically was my attempt to write about (what the name also implies), those moments in our history covered with a layer of intrigue. Conspiracy theories, more or less.
While it's true that many such conspiracy theories are created only to attract attention in order to sell a book or a movie, there are, however, secrets and disinformation in the world. This kind of subjects managed to attract a promising number of readers but in the end I decided to stop wasting my time on fairytales.
Strange as it may seem, I had much to learn from that period. Writing about things many people don't believe and on which few actual facts are available is like walking through a thick tropical forest with nothing but the clothes on yourself, every step has its own risks. You gradually have to adapt to the environment and make tools to help you get out. Most often we have to face obstacles in order to evolve.
Prior to this I also had a "more normal" passion for poetry that ultimately developed into a strong interest in art, leading to my three years of studies in history and theory of art, at the university where I also met my wonderful and loving wife, herself a great poet and art historian.
It's at the bottom of the emblem because it's the base. Knowing the past will help us know ourselves and glimpse possible futures and doing so, decide our present actions by ourselves, not being let pushed and pulled by exterior forces.
A subject of controversy for most of my readers, I know. My own perspectives on the established religions are delicate however I strongly believe in the one true God and I know that all I achieved so far was with His help, first and foremost. I have a rational faith, believing in God is letting His light shine upon you, when this happens, you know, the others don't have to.
Art is life dissected into a myriad of parts. This act of creation (or interpretation) is one of the most beautiful and useful things I experienced in life. Art first and foremost needs to be made by oneself in order to feel its true power. The capacity of art to hold information and transmit it in a symbolic form is also fascinating.
PHILOSOPHY, THE MIND
As you maybe have observed, all the elements can be linked to each other, this central symbol, the Flame inside a boteh is however special. The boteh is an ancient Persian symbol which is also called the "flame of Zoroaster". The meaning is wisdom and knowledge as guides and results of our actions
The images shown here are made by me, nobody can use them without my written consent and with the condition of not altering their meanings.
All the best to you,
