Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1 to 500
~ Idea 1296 ~ 27 January 1998
If Jesus had seen the mountains of trash and discarded packaging thrown away in the western world after Christmas, He might have decided not to be born.
Robert's The Miracle, Joy and Art of Living,
Volume II Chapter 15 - Of Beauty and Art
Barbara Gaughen, my wife, has said this about the role of art and culture: "A true artist should be a whole, indivisible, planetary life and cosmos-conscious being. Artists, musicians, poets and writers have the vocation to become immortal."
How right she is: a Leonardo da Vinci, a Michelangelo, a Mozart, a Beethoven are immortal through their works while not a single politician, powerholder or wealthholder of their time is remembered. Try to name one.
I wrote this framework for the planetary cosmic role of art and culture so that an artist can select any subject from it to celebrate it, to make it a work of art, to augment in us the understanding of the incredible meaning of the miracle of the universe, of our Earth, of all life, especially human life which now embraces the entire globe.
Yehudin Menuhin wanted to write his views on the back of the table which follows the dream herewith, but alas he died prematurely. Artists should be the longest living humans on Earth. Dear God, why did you let one of the most genial sculptors ever, my friend Domenico Mazzone, die so young? (Read "Domenico Mazzone, the Faith of a Great Artist" in my book Most of All, They Taught Me Happiness.)
