A mountain floats

the Goddess's face,
I asked myself: Why do we come to see another person's art?
that we basically have the same brain as the artist, except you
taste something on your tongue. Do your taste buds signal something
so palatable that it could fuel appetitive drives? Or is it distasteful?
The amygdala is one other part of that higher circuitry which 'decides'...
come to a junction of two roads. i know the one to
take and take it, even though the one next to it is marked
as if to say: This is the right way."
i climb to the
top of the hill, where both roads join again at the edge
of a dark wood.
a stimulus event will
become either rewarding or adverse. Amygdala cells soon learn to
respond differently, and their relay circuits are already hard-wired
at birth for the talent.
Yet, if talent is just a sequence chemical events conspiring to
release an inspired mark, why are Marin's painting hanging here,
and not those of the viewer?It's not just talent,
but art is a style of being.
