Imagine yourself seated in a room facing a window that occupies an entire wall. Imagine further that this window has the magical property that it opens on a scene identical with the landscape of your mind. Think of it as a device that transforms your imagination into a tangible visible reality. This is in no way analogous to a television screen. Rather, envision downtown Paris seen from the gondola of a hot air balloon. That is the difference. So, if the scene in your mind envisions surfing the quantum foam, that is also the scene outside the window. If the scene in your mind is the Unseen University Library (including orangatang librarian), that is the scene outside.

A very important characteristic of this window is that if you choose to see (for example) the Unseen University Library (including orangatang librarian), that is what you really see, not some fictitious representation. For those of you wearing a quizzical expression, do a Google image search. This same "reality characteristic" is true for whatever you choose to see. Because in an infinite universe, (if this is an infinite universe) whatever you choose to see exists in reality somewhere. I have been toying with this idea for years and have made several still renderings of magic windows. For example, a rendering of this name (i.e. Finestra Magica) is on display in one of my galleries. Doubtless, I will make several more. It all depends on what is on (or in) my mind.

I decided to make a video on this theme because I did not feel that any of the still images I historically have created elaborated sufficiently the potential scope available from such a magical device. Naturally, no two viewers looking out of the window will see the same scene. Nor do I expect that anyone who views this video would imagine what I have depicted here. What I have depicted here are scenes from a personal voyage. What I hope viewers will be thinking is "Wow! If I had such a magical window what would I choose to see?" And the answer to that question (which only you know) will be quite illuminating on a personal level.

In the final analysis, of course, my principal objective in this (as in all of my videos) has been to create something both magical and beautiful.
