Thats why I included "Interjections" between each chapter in my book - so everyone could understand that I wasn't trying to write a book to try to copy the Da Vinci code or make up some stuff to trick people into buying it. EVERY Single thing i've done has gone through my own doubt and skepticism. That's why it's taken so long, That's why I've never made a single phone call to try to get what i've found out there - I doubted myself every single step of the way. I think it's led to a very honest and concise book and I think in the end ill be better off to be cautious. The hardest part was thinking i've found this amazing discovery - only to have EVERYONE dismiss it. I'm just a 24 year old using a book and "discoveries" as a way to get out of working and the "real world"
So as I lay on the ground with the cheapest lap top Best Buy had, with duct tape holding in the power cord that broke off. In what will be my un-born nephews room, with painted animals on the wall. With 7$ on the dresser next to me as the only money I have. I've lost everything to writing this book. I dont say that as a sob story but to show how much i've invested in all of this. Something I never even knew about.. or intended to ever do. Something that it seems someone else choose for me to do. So I dont know! I just want people to know that I'm genuine about all this. It may not be my "life's work" but it's a year's work! And that's a long time to spend on something and not getting paid for!
But back to Jesus looking like an alien! Did Da Vinci intend for him to look this way? And if he did, did he intend for him to look like an "alien" what would he imagine an alien to look like? Did anyone even consider aliens to be real back then? Or even imagined the concept of people-ish things not from earth? Could there have been people who looked like this? What's VERY interesting about this image in particular isn't just that he appears to be not human, but that there are fingers pointing up right next to him - right? I didn't put them there, I didn't try to make it look like this. It's just an image that is created when the mirrored image is placed on itself. So assuming that this was Da VInci's intention - ??? What was he trying to say?
This is the First painting ever that I mirrored on itself. It's by Bernardino LUINI Which is very interesting because look how close that name is to Leonardo Da Vinci. But anways. It was an image in a Da Vinci book I had just bought.
When I first saw it, I was like? What is he doing with his hand? pointing to the jewel in his shirt? (Since when did Jesus ever wear nice clothes?) and what does his expression mean? 1, 2? For some reason I was like, Well maybe this should be mirrored on itself~! And if you look at the painting next to it's mirrored self and look back and forth really quickly you can see what i mean. It almost makes an animation/ and you can see what looks like 1 -2 -1 -2. Something like that. So then I mirrored it on itself and got the image above them. I hadn't slept in 2 days at this point and I was like OMAlien! Seeing as this was the first time I had mirrored anything on itself I couldn't help but doubt that it was suppose to viewed like that. I was thinking: Am I just seeing things, or could it possibly be intended to be seen like this?
This was another image I noticed. It looks like a hooded figure holding something between its hands and some kind of wing like thing on it's arms. Again I was like, wait is this real? Or just a fluke?
I ended up making this that first night for some reason I just kept trying different things.
I originally started with this image because of it's use of red and blue and I had just watched "Medium" in 3d a few days before. I was thinking that maybe the red and blue in the painting were there for a reason - I knew NOTHING about paintings.
I was really confused and didn't understand if it was just me or it was suppose to be seen like that. Even later when I found other images in mirrored paintings that had to be more than a fluke, I'm still unsure about this one. BUT I wasn't just seeing what I wanted to see. I didn't want to see an alien! I didn't want to see anything or expect to see anything. I wasn't looking for hidden images at all. I was thinking it would make a fun animation going by his hands. But yeah, that's how all this started for me! And is also in my book! http://www.itsjustlife.com/ddd_iseven.html I describe it in more detail in my 7th interjection.
The only other things that are interesting to me about the idea of Jesus being portrayd to look like an "alien" is what "alien" really means? Not from earth? Whether you believe in evolution or creation we came from or were created from something not from here. God created earth - then placed man here. Or The earth was created and man evolved here - or came here. If you take the bible literally and keep in mind you also have to apply the rules of reality to them. Angels and heaven are technically Space and "aliens" in a way. Most would agree that you can't go looking for God in space right? But then where is heaven? "separated the heavens from the." heaven is space. God is in heaven! To me there is a huge division between science and religion that is just stupid. There is only one truth. We're here. We can't prove or disprove God. Some people only think the bible is a story written by man to describe God. Others believe the bible was written through man by God. And others don't think it's anything but a creation myth like the countless others - some of which pre-dating it. So the more you think about it, the more you have to keep thinking, and reading, and researching - with no real end in sight. The point being that no matter what you believe to be true or not, doesn't mean it's true or not. You can have total faith in something, only to find out it's false. You can totally dismiss something, only to find out it's true. We need to work together to figure out what the truths are, instead of arguing our individual beliefs.
So keep an open mind! It's just art, it's just that artists opinion, it's just life!
Thanks Mr. Anderson! haha
