“Born in stars, we live on earth as poets.” In a Hegelian twist, English poet, painter, and mystic William Blake's notion could also read born on earth, we live in stars as poets. Either way, it symbolically broaches the eternal questions of possible forms and manifestations beyond the horizon of perception, beyond the optical boundaries of vision extending into the depths of space, the cosmos, the universe, and of the subject and humankind being bounded by the dimensions of the Earth’s universe as a microcosm.
