From my Workshop II
THE UNIVERSE SEEN BBY ITSELF
Oil on wood 1978.Private collection,Stockholm
John Archibald Wheeler ( 1911– 2008) ,an extremely creative and very fearless physical theorist whom I had the privilege to meet at the University of Texas at Austin introduced, if I am right - the expression "the self-referential universe" in his magnificient anthology on Gravity.Meaning that this mighty universe does not come into existence in any meaningful sense before it is able to observe itswelf.
So - after many billions of years of nuclear and other processes ,the universe is able to produce the heavy metals aznd other substances ,developed in slow,cruel and painful biological evolution,which makes it possible to see itself.
When we speak about the world ,the world speaks about itself.
