Paul Laffoley Zoomable Images 5:
The Living Klein-Bottle House of Time


To call this man's artwork profound is a complete understatement. The FUTURE ART of Visionary Philosopher/Designer Laffoley is without parallel. Immensely detailed mandalas of geometrical systems, thought symmetries, machines of the future, bioengineered living structures, methods of creating time-machines and dimensional wormholes are just the beginning!


"The goal of our present endeavor is to produce a transdisciplinary world-view
which will sustain human existence into a continuous future."
- Paul Laffoley

"The Living Klein Bottle House of Time"
1978
Oil, Acrylic, Lettering on Canvas
73 1/2 x 73 1/2 in.

Subject: The Second Design Phase of the Time Machine
Symbol Evocation: The Singularity between the Third and Fourth Dimensions Spatiality

Comments: The basic change from the first to the second design phase of the time machine is the addition of the Biochron Time-Suit. This entity is an alternative creature that has been genetically programmed to grow in the form of a living Klein bottle.

I believe that to perceive time periods radically dislocated from one's habitual and functional space-time frame, a buffer or early warning system is necessary for protection against possible changes in circumstance and belief. Although the average world-view should take one successfully through an entire lifetime with little adjustment, world-views or universe-views are in fact notoriously fragile entities. For example, if you attempt to process information on the circumstance and beliefs of the world 5,000 years hence, you might well be brought into direct contact with thoughts not only unimaginable but directly destructive to someone in your present, or yourself. Imagine if the artifacts of our present civilization were constructed by people from our ancient past, and what inevitable havoc would reign unless the ancients had had some way of understanding our present beliefs.

Coupled with the Biochron Time-Suit is a device I call the Agnosticon.
The purpose of the device is to allow its user to engineer their doubt or faith processes. In my opinion, it is necessary to engineer doubt and faith in relation to the accelerated space-time frames of reference that would be encountered with the time machine, in order to perceive these unfamiliar world-views. In other words, you must be able to believe or disbelieve any proposition instantly in order to survive in alien space-time systems. The basis of the Agnosticon is the heptahedron, which is a seven-sided convex polyhedron made from a piezoelectric crystal shaped like an octahedron and electromagnetically charged along its major axes and surfaces. As a structured singularity, the heptahedron is kept isolated from other singularities so that it can function specifically in relation to human beings
