    Mirror of Consciousness ambitiously traverses a wide range of themes

    pertaining to art, creativity, knowledge and theory. Its unique perspective

    lies in its exposition of Vedic Science as brought to light by His Holiness

    Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and in the application of the principles of this

    science to preliminary analysis of the Vastusutra Upanishad. No other

    publication has examined art and theory with the same comprehensive vision.

    To do justice to the topic of universal value in art and theory, the author

    has delved into several areas that impact the visual arts--late

    twentieth-century debates in art theory, models of historiography, new

    definitions of culture and tradition--in the context of the individual's

    own consciousness or simplest form of awareness. Though comprehensive and

    detailed, it will appeal to those who are curious about trends in the

    visual arts, the advent and impact of new technologies, and the development

    of collective consciousness in our time.
