As water revolves and react among the forms of a rock so is this manifesto.
Creation presuppose mind
The imagination of God infinitely surpasses ours.
The imagination of God includes; death processes , marine monsters, carnivore plants, water and organic memory among many other visible or invisible things that take form.
Of course we know there is a God, is evident in nature but we suppress this knowledge.
Fallen worlds become a playground-theater for God imagined species and eternal drama.
There is two mysteries we fail to understand: the nature of death and the origin of evil. Both are abnormally alienating, parasitic from life, disregarding God and others.
When material become something else it doesn’t have to be boring or dull. Carbon is one of the most abundant mineral on planet. Diamonds aren’t. Scarcity and purity give a great value to diamonds. Also our crave for beauty, security and for less perishable things make gold for example, more valuable.
Some experts seems to notice the difference between real and fake diamonds. It’s the most natural of process that transforms a carbon to a diamond. As a carbon become into diamond enough pressure, heat and time had to be produce in order that the new object is made. A change of constitution has taken place now and for the charcoal-diamond it seems to be irreversible.
And it so for other natural organism, as a monarch butterfly, for food preparation, digestion, sex or growing.
As decay seems to be an universal causality it is natural for humans to crave for something that they do not had, as gold, diamonds, health, butterflies, sex or happiness. In both cases; the compulsion for something that you don’t have or other phases; the gratification sense of acquiring or becoming ignite a very deep power struggle.
Lust as fire seems to govern, emotional, political and economical arena. Science is a new kind of fast lure or religion for survival or success. But patience give character, and character brings deliver otherworldly hope in so many forms.
Some people said that Da’Vinci was scared about the idea of end of the world via water, John Martin (the apocalyptic painter) was obsessed with the biblical idea of the fire consummation as the apostle Peter tells:
“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.” 2Pe 3:10 KJV
Interestingly enough is that both Art Grandpas depicts reigns, or castles, people or architecture in minuscule form, unveiled or subtle on the way to becoming.
But in any case, I am preparing charcoal from decaying tropical forest and making artworks that are metaphorical diamonds or even can become too.

The End For Which God Created the World
Thus, that nature in a tree, by which it puts forth buds, shoots out branches, and brings forth leaves and fruit, is a disposition that terminates in its own complete self. And so the disposition in the sun to shine, or abundantly to diffuse its fullness, warmth, and brightness is only a tendency to its own most glorious and complete state. So God looks on the communication of himself and the emanation of his infinite glory to belong to the fullness and completeness of himself, as though he were not in his most glorious state without it. -
Integrity is not a virtue we posses
is a virtue to be pursued
in the boundaries of humility
and acknowledge a deep, raw, deep understanding
that we are dust
Excerpt of the poem
Integrity by Jeanine Martínez
Some historical precedents
The last manifestation of Leonardo’s art of expression was in his series of pictorial sketches Visions of the End of the World (c. 1514–15). There Leonardo’s power of imagination—born of reason and fantasy—attained its highest level. Leonardo suggested that the immaterial forces in the cosmos, invisible in themselves, appear in the material things they set in motion. What he had observed in the swirling of water and eddying of air, in the shape of a mountain boulder and in the growth of plants, now assumed gigantic shape in cloud formations and rainstorms. He depicted the framework of the world as splitting asunder, but even in its destruction there occurs—as the monstrously “beautiful” forms of the unleashed elements show—the self-same laws of order, harmony, and proportion that presided at the world’s creation. These rules govern the life and death of every created thing in nature. Without any precedent, these “visions” are the last and most original expressions of Leonardo’s art—an art in which his perception based on saper vedere seems to have come to fruition.
Answer me, O LORD, answer me, that this people may know that You, O LORD, are God, and that You have turned their heart back again." Then the fire of the LORD fell and consumed the burnt offering and the wood and the stones and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. When all the people saw it, they fell on their faces; and they said, "The LORD, He is God; the LORD, He is God."…
