Art is a personal composition of the reality that surrounds us and artist/scientist Casey Cripe’s work takes that concept to a crazy intricate level. Each piece is a map of the exploration of life, self and the universe. His ability to capture the beauty of anatomical figures and scientific complexities result in an imaginative juxtaposition of the surreal and hyper-real.

CLAIRAUDIENCE

[noun]

in the field of parapsychology, clairaudience [from late 17th century French clair (clear) and audience (hearing)] is a form of extra-sensory perception wherein a person acquires information by paranormal auditory means. It is often considered to be a form of clairvoyance. Clairaudience is essentially the ability to hear in a paranormal manner, as opposed to paranormal seeing (clairvoyance) and feeling (clairsentience); i.e. the ability to hear voices, music and other sounds not audible to the normal physical ear. It may refer not to actual perception of sound, but may instead indicate impressions of the “inner mental ear” similar to the way many people think words without having auditory impressions. However it may also refer to actual perception of sounds such as voices, tones, or noises which are not apparent to other humans or to recording equipment (i.e. astral sound). For instance, a clairaudient person might claim to hear the voices or thoughts of the spirits of persons who are deceased.

In Buddhism, it is believed that those who have extensively practiced Buddhist meditation and have reached a higher level of consciousness can activate their “third ear” and hear the music of the spheres; i.e. the music of the celestial gandharvas. Clairaudience may be positively distinguished from the voices heard by the mentally ill when it reveals information unavailable to the clairaudient person by normal means (including cold reading or other magic tricks), and thus may be termed “psychic” or paranormal.
