The basis of energetic editing is the understanding that not a single thing in this universe has a fixed inherent meaning, so the images are not seen as finite objects which belong to a certain context,they are rather seen as manifestations or containers of energy. While linear editing which is the most popular form of composition of images is unfolding in relation to a conceptual context, a story-line or some sort of principal idea which connects the images, energetic editing is unfolding in the opposite direction, the context is the editing itself, the very play of energy that arises from the interaction of images is the creative drive behind this form of composition. From a philosophical point of view energetic editing is all about direct, non- conceptual perception, in other words that which doesn't have a story is the essence of energetic editing. What is that which has no story?
To see is to lose oneself in the seeing.
The inner function of art is to reveal the timeless in us.
Creativity is not a doing, it is an alignment with the cosmic unfolding, in which there is no separate doer.
The person is real only when we forget that thought is unreal.
There are no things apart from thoughts, if you see things you are thinking.
Images have no meaning in themselves, the mind projects meaning unto images, according to one's self-image.
Non-conceptual perception is the most natural, thinking is superimposed on top of it.
The photographer is a conceptual identity not an actual entity.
The context is the seeing, the content is the editing.
Images are energy fields, the subtler the state of the consciousness that produces them, the subtler the vibration.
The narrative model of understanding and structuring images reflects the idea we have of ourselves as some thing born in time, a time-body.
Looking for meaning in images is like looking for water in a mirage.
Beauty is the end of thought.
The true power of a work of art lies in its ability to silence the mind.
When you see as consciousness all you see is consciousness.
It's not the nothing that the mind thinks, it's the nothing out of which the mind comes.
Liberation is to recognize that our essential nature is formless.
