I am not able to absorb the information in a steady flow in this book, since it introduces concepts that are so foreign to my day-to-day vocabulary.
So, I read a new chapter every so often.
I have been waiting to be able to read this latest chapter for several weeks. During the reading of it, my mind shut down and I simply went to sleep for about ten minutes or so. Then I was able to revive and finish the chapter.
I learned that the modern artists who portrayed subjects in various spacial and time relationships to each other were, once again, ahead of the physicists in studies of gravitational forces.
Schlain’s premise includes the prescience of artists in perceiving and expressing many of the things which scientific theories demonstrate mathematically later.
It will be a while before I can continue to the next chapter, I am sure.
If you would enjoy reading this amazing topic, the comparison between the two disciplines and their time periods of expression and exploration, here is the link for the book.
