Questions that have been asked since our early existence. However, throughout history we have apparently never recognized the many signs we encountered on our path, and which should have provided answers. Why? The respond is... we ourselves are the problem! We limit ourselves by our limited method of thinking. And if we than do explore certain directives, we begin to distort these so that practically nothing of these remain. It is also the reason why prophets and nice oracles, when they revealed their knowledge and wisdom, were misinterpreted by our own limited method of thinking. Yet... answers and explanations are closer than we would surmise. The only thing we have to do is expand our method of thinking, after which we come to the conclusion that our universe and our consciousness consist of many layers.

Description: The moving camera shapes the screen photo with nice purposefulness, using the frame of a window as fulcrum upon which to wheel about the exterior scene. The zoom lens rips, pulling depth planes apart and slapping them together, contracting and expanding in concurrence with camera movements to impart a terrific apparent-motion to the complex of the object-forms pictured on the horizontal-vertical screen, its axis steadied by the audience's sense of gravity. The camera's movements in being transferred to objects tend also to be greatly magnified (instead of the camera the adjacent building turns). About four years of studying the window-complex preceded the afternoon of current shooting (a real instance of cinematic action-painting). The movie exists as it came out of the camera barring one mechanically important mid-reel splice
