Spectral Domain (2019 - )

This work is inspired by the work of neuroscientist Karl Pribam as outlined by author Lynne McTaggart:

“Our brain primarily talks to itself and to the rest of the body not with words or images, or even bits or chemical impulses, but in the language of wave interference: the language of phase, amplitude, and frequency - the ‘spectral domain’...In a sense, in the act of observation, we are transforming the timeless, spaceless world of interference patterns into the concrete and discrete world of space and time…Storing memory in wave interference patterns is remarkably efficient, and would account for the vastness of human memory.”
