From a linguistic perspective, the phenomenon of three-dimensionality permits the representation of the Infinite Fractal Logic of Original Lore to be recognised and witnessed through a scientific-artistic-mathematical language translated as the Golden Ratio. Roger Saunders’ painting “Spirit Trails of the Reef” illustrates this asymmetrical geometry of the Golden Ratio or Golden Mean considered as “sacred” because this ratio forms a definite part of the “underlying structure of the universe” (Skinner, 2006). Artistically, this language of Infinity is achieved as a result of the layering and contrasting of colour and imagery, spatial positioning, boundaries and awareness and object recognition and interactions (Grossberg, 1994).
