Australian Indigenous languages including the artistic language of Infinity are timeless, metaphorical and cyclical; in essence integrating the physical world, conscious mind, and spiritual levels of experience to absorb and reflect “the metaphysical drama of creation” (Lawler, 1991, p. 270). Indigenous artistic languages provide a multidimensional way of describing their worlds, their lives, and the universe uniting the Dreamtime, the Dreaming and the present in “a metamorphosis of the invisible spiritual, psychological, and ethical realms” thus both conscious and unconscious minds converge (ibid, p. 31).
