My sculptures and paintings are the materialization in an artistic manner of my thoughts and my feelings; later on
followed the interpretation in the form of a philosophic concept. It is suitable and right to begin with the reproduction of my wood sculpture that artistically represents the
Philosophy of the Figurative Time. At present, this sculpture is the most recent of all I have achieved. Through the relationship between its
shapes and its volumes, this sculpture carries out the representation of the Philosophy of the Figurative Time, if I dare call this latest one a philosophy.
The Philosophy of the Figurative Time
assumes that everything in this world and the world itself is born and comes into being from the Asymmetry, the Symmetry, the Full and the Emptiness, the void. Thus, the world lets itself elucidated, due to the fact
that our explanatory logic operates based on the same reasons: the Asymmetry, the Symmetry, the Full and the Emptiness. This guides us to the knowledge process. To the aforementioned four notions
are also directly connected the Discontinuity and the Continuity, which are, as well, thoroughly reflected by my works.
The sculpture " Figurative Time Philosophy" begins from
up downwards with the shape of the dis- continuity, then the negation of the discontinuity takes place through asymmetry, the both being doubly represented in their
hypostasis of full and emptiness: twice the asymmetric emptiness, twice the sym- metric full, twice the symmetric emptiness and twice the
asymmetric full, the total sum is the number 8 (eight), which represents the love (affection) as a cosmologic process; it happens the same, like living
and feelings, during our own love and affectionís rhythm. This complex of shapes includes the number 8
and is called Love. Our Love is a representation and a reiteration in short and accelerated form of the cos- mologic Love. This one describes the rhythm of transformation of the feelings in the love relationship between man and woman, but also an approach of good will towards the fellow creatures, towards the other beings, towards Nature and Universe.
Today in the morning, it is Sunday December the 5-th 1999, I was reading the book of Clifford Pickover, "The Mathematics and God". I astonishingly
found out that even Pythagoras assigned to the love the number 8. There is no connection between the reasons, which determined Pythagoras, and those, which persuaded myself to express the
love through the number 8; the reasons are indeed rather different. However, the similarity of the statements astonished me. This book will unveil the
understanding and the profoundness of importance I give to the complex of eight.
The negation of the discontinuity begins through a fluctuation,
brought about by an asymmetric emptiness, then the whole rhythm is played; like this, the entire discontinuity is fully negated. In
this moment begins also the continuity itís development, as the negation of the negation. If this statement is applied to the cosmologic theory of the Big Bang,
therefore this moment represents exactly the three seconds, which followed the Big Bang. The continuity has its roots in the asymmetric full and originates in the symmetric full, the mother
of all existing, including the Gravity. The cosmologic theory of the Big Bang distinguishes itself through a unique parameter: the Expansion, the Dilatation of the Universe. This
parameter induces the attribute of continuity to the actual development stage of the Universe and reveals itself to us as time. The Expansion will probably stop in a certain
moment in the future and will reverse itself into Implosion. Thus, we will have a whole accomplished cycle of the continuity, which is also re- presented by my sculpture in its lower part.
Till here, all my statements have rather an artistic worth. Anybody can advocate the same about his or her own statements, namely that they do have an
artistic value. But, in order to build a solid philosophy by joining together these artistic representations of models and statements, there is still need for the
demonstration and the acknowledgement.
The mission of the demonstration is to show that this new philosophic concept is more comprehensive and ample and renders a better
service to our knowledge like any other one, at least at present time. The formulation in this relative manner is really necessary, because our knowledge and our information, which are guiding us
to the knowledge process, are growing and widening along the human history, this leading to a transforming and evolutionary process
of the knowledge itself. It is likely that this process will never end. Nowadays, it seems that the knowledge evolutionary process is becoming accelerated. Through
the acceleration process of the evolution of knowledge, it seems also that the knowledge process is taking multiple development ways, so the
attribute "coherent knitted together" can be seldom found and, moreover, when such is required to a philosophic concept, it will be at least controversial and litigious.
philosophy of the Figurative Time assumes as goal, by using its fundamental notions and ideas: the symmetry and the asymmetry, the full and the emptiness, along with
discontinuity and continuity, to render more clear and more intuitive the understanding of the Cosmology, in the dialectic process of
continuous transformation and evolution of its study object, which is the Universe. The book intends to unveil in itís contents that this process, the Cosmic metamorphose,
is reiterating itself shortly, briefly, rapidly and incompletely inside all the processes, including the human thinking, into which the Chaos and the
Order are exercising an ascendancy each one upon the other, like in a feed-back rhythm in the dimension of time.
From the point of view of the usefulness of the
philosophy of the Figurative Time, one can back up that this philosophy do have an artistic worth and also a philosophic value, our opinion is that a
double recognition is likely to raise itís value to a higher level.
