Out of the banal motions of daily life comes the vision. The vision is an intrusion of the eternal into the temporal. At this collision point of the natural human intellect and the external, transcendent one, we encounter a world of archetypes. The decoding of these archetypes leads to an understanding of not only the innermost psyche but the greater macrocosmic systems which produced it. This exegesis sometimes begins and sometimes ends as scholastic analysis of the archetypes within the vision. The analysis draws from allusions to scripture, myth and ancient philosophical or spiritual texts preexistent in the vision.

The true exegesis manifests external to the mind as a painting, the making of which is a continuation of the initial state of the vision. By externalizing the vision it becomes didactic and therefore the archetypes find their correspondence in the mind of the viewer.
