    If an ingredient is not balanced in a picture it can be balanced by another, quite different ingredient. And also, depending where the fulcrum is, a grape will send a pineapple skyward.

    Yamsha, here is something that it would be useful for you to be aware of regarding surfaces:

    If the cube were the size of a town then atmospheric perspective would come into play. But not over distances of a few meters. The only conditions in which a small distance would exhibit this effect...

    If the process of imagination is the soul manifesting itself, then 'insight', being a manifestation of a truth (be it conditional or universal) is necessarily outside it. (That is if one considers a...

    I agree with all of that Armando, except for your statement about imagination also organising the 'soul' of the imaginer, which I am not too clear about regarding your meaning. Surely the act of...

    Thanks Armando, I understand you a little better. It seems that you are saying visualisation is an improvable skill enabling us to hold a more comprehensive image in our mind, whereas imagination is...

    I certainly agree with that, Armando, but I'm particularly intrigued by the second part of your statement. Could you expand on that a little, if you have a moment.
    Thanks,

    Thanks Bill, that paper was a very interesting read.
    It accounts for why good artists often display talent across the artistic field; because 'a talent for art' requires a complex array of gifts and...

    "But what about art traditions that do not put such an emphasis on the individual touch as the European tradition? Is the authorship as important in them? Would you be able to detect this deep...

    Quoting my own hero... :)
    But is the ability to reach insights about the world, to make meaningful synthesis, a 'talent'?

    You're quite wrong Ms Spot! Trumpet players do not puff their cheeks out to that degree or at all. And it is for the same reason tennis players are told to keep a locked wrist - control. (only in...

    As far as I'm aware, Higgins never used a tennis racket to win a game of snooker. McEnroe's bad temperedness always arose out of a sense of unfairness concerning the line decisions against him and...
