The We In Me

'We In Me' by Seh Hui

This art is greatly inspired by Dr Jill Bolte Taylor’s phenomenal TED talk: to be more specific about it’s the second part of the talk when she tries to express her out-of-the-world experience during the time when had a stroke.

I really wished that I could expand further what transpired me during those mesmerizing moments listening to her and coming up with this piece of art. My own inept attempt to describe it is that I hold on to the concept of β€œme” (the ego), that I’m separate from other entities within this plane of existence. However, I’m having a belief, or rather a hypothesis if you would put it that way, that there indeed exists a collective consciousness that bind us as a unifying whole, or wholeness.

There’s no scientific basis or evidence to prove or disprove the existence of such a collective consciousness that binds every single entity in the planet, while each of us take on a unique manifestation of form and substance and live as a unique presence in this plane of existence.

I could only say from my experience that I can certainly relate to the fact that I could feel an undercurrent of mysterious energy that flows through me which make me curious on whether hypothesis is true or not.

Well, probably it’d be a better idea for you to keep an open mind and watch the video yourself. See what you could get out of it. 😊
