Behind the material world is the immaterial world, which is connected to a multitude of invisible goods. All we can experience is impossible without the vast immaterial world that is developing behind the scenes. “Appearance” itself is an ongoing dynamic process. For 12 years I have been growing into the thought that “everything already existed and only manifested itself through time”. Thus, the focus of my attention has shifted from the reality of “being visible” to exploring the essence of what “already exists”.
