Manifesto

Art has long made the invisible visible, revealing the presence of the unknown to us.
But this revelation does not mean that what is unknown becomes known, but rather that the
Unknown itself as a presence of being becomes known — as that which can never be known. Art puts our minds at ease — for through art we inhale the unknown mind in without knowing what it is.
For art has pierced the barrier between the known and the unknown.
IT HAS GIVEN US EXISTENTIAL OXYGEN!
So let us honour the unknown and not just the art.
The Agprogno!ic Temple - a space for art and a ‘house’ for the Unknown.
We have given the unknown a throne, a black cube "The Cube of the Unknown”
A shadow cube of a higher dimensional hypercube. Which sits at the heart of the Temple.
THE AGPROGNOSTIC TEMPLE IS THE BODY OF THE COLLECTIVE MIND.
ART IS ITS TECHNOLOGY - IT CAN MAKE CRACKS IN THE FABRIC OF SPACE TIME!
Art that is, which achieves real presence - by the full transmigration of the subject’s mind inside and outside the art object.
The Agprognostic Temple calls forth the mind of the unknown - to transcend the mind of the known.
MIND THAT IS OUR GREATER BEING IN THE 4th spatial DIMENSION. Which gives us the supernatural notion of spirit and gods.
As it dwells inside and outside the 3rd Dimension of materiality.
As such, we as minds are simultaneously inside and outside our material troubles, desires and even thoughts.
With the evocation of the Unknown Mind — The mind can become at peace with the unremovable existence of the Unknown presence of being.
As it moves in the higher spatial fourth-dimension — we, in the third spatial dimension, are as a principal condition of the self are unable to perceive this dimension.
Through achieving a transcending peace with the unknown, one achieves all.
