Monument to the Intellect

How our inner world would look like if we would manage to create a mind-telescope to investigate the way our personal world builds up? We explore the outer space, but do we take time to explore ourselves at first? Learning about human brain workings is a beneficial strategy to achieve an authentic vision on life and set the mind. Through the centuries the best ideas and discoveries were made by people who managed to see the world from another angle and perspective. Do you want to become a new genius of the century? Then take a step on the Thinking Path that leads to the knowledge. A true knowledge is not just information you consume. Firstly thoughtful information that digested into personal intellectual item in mind. Monument to the Intellect is an architectural alarm to awake consuming society.

The Monument consist of three stages that represent three cognitive networks of thinking when constructing an intellectual item in mind. Why such an awareness about human intellect is a topic to get attract to? Because today we watch more but we think less.

Colorful collages that comes along with the Monument are my personal visualizations of the possible scenery of unconscious map of one’s intellect. Those sceneries of a mind set consist of intellectual items – thoughtful digested information. The more you think truly, the more you expand your inner map of the intellect.
