Unus Mundus

The reality that everything emerges from and returns to one. 

What Is Unus Mundus?

image93

The term Unus Mundus most literally translates to “one world” in Latin. Psychologist Carl Jung expanded upon the original meaning to describe the idea of a collective unconscious and the emergence of a new reality from human cognizance itself, emphasizing the organic interconnectedness of all parts and particles of the universe.  Unus Mundus lays the scaffolding for a reality in which our external and internal realms are one in the same, a dreamscape where matter and soul are one.  Constructing a world where the observer is directly connected to the observed, now a well-known phenomenon in particle physic deemed, the observer effect. Yung’s Unus Mundus goes beyond space and time and includes the idea of transcendent unity. The creator and the creation are linked at the same energy source.  This parallels the same proposals found by physicist David Bohm and neurophysiologist Karl Pribram, who independently proposed holographic models of reality.

The Process

I generally start a piece by attempting to express an idea too complex for words alone. Symbols in my paintings can be seen as more than one form depending on how you view the picture as a whole. The inspiration and thoughts behind my work evolves along the paintings. The process is a cyclical collaboration between thought and action. 

Unus Mundus Art lines

Disclaimer: Please keep in mind that a website or article will never be an accurate representation of an actual human being. I find the practice of public sharing to be exceedingly unnatural. I strive to deliver a true picture of my life happenings, but want to take a moment to remind us all that a clear picture is still just a curated image forever trapped in time. I’ll always be somewhere else by the time you’re reading this and I do intend to have grown between the here and the now and the then.
