The Classic Approach:
A More Complex Web of Thoughts and Processes:
A New, Experimental Approach:
This is a continually evolving website which, until now, has dealt primarily with the continuation and
development (now in java) of the
work (then based on the Amiga computer
system) which is documented on my original site. In time, it is
intended to merge the two sites. However, a new area has just been added -one which is is too new to be able to describe.
This site supports "open source" systems, the pioneering
tradition of the artist/programmer and the pattern based and divinational aspects of non-western art.
With thanks to all my friends -who have helped to make the
work possible -and all my opponents who have also contributed
through their opposition. In Europe the work was forged on the anvil of
conflict -hopefully in Asia a more balanced developmental dialogue will
now be possible.
Please Note: The texts on this website are "Formal Systems" -which in my terminology means that they represent conceptual structures which play the "IF this was true -THEN...."
game. There is no reason to assume that any of them are true.... they
merely attempt to clarify and explore the possible consequences of
things that are concievable and might be worth exploring to see how
closely these (imagined) conceptual structures might possibly relate to
our daily world of experience. They are intended to be useful for those
who like thinking about "how things might
work".... They are not intended to impose anything on anybody -or to
upset anybody. My apologies to anybody who might be offended by these
The java programmes are perhaps philosophically slightly more complex
-because they represent dynamic representations of various "formal
systems" -which may not be true -or even exist outside the programme.
I'll leave it to the reader to decide how to deal with representational
systems that apparently function but might be representative of a
system that does not exist outside its own representation.....
