“Paying Attention to Attention”

The latest creation by Matt Semke is titled “Paying Attention to Attention.“

Yeah, in the meditation experience, it’s kind of like this. The only thing that is lacking in this depiction is, in the graphic arts – – or any other presentation of phenomena, except for silence itself – – the non-dual state that manifests when “attention is paid to attention”, simply cannot be expressed here. Words or speech or lines or colors cannot express it for some “viewer”. Otherwise, this is a decent depiction of the meditation mechanism, if you will: the last nanosecond before turning the question to the questioner, before don’t-know’s infinity blooms up out of the background.  But there needs to be this turning “inward“. Looking back at the headless head.
