the order of effects of consciousness
People enjoy art because art illuminates truth. It does so in some surprising
ways. Artistic insights tend to emerge from associations operating below
language based processing. Non-language-based neural association networks are
more directly connected to "reality" than language based connections because
they lack the additional layers of abstraction and ambiguity inherent in
language based processing. Art is popular because it resonates with these
deeper levels of consciousness. In short, Art feels good because art reflects
Truth. Arthur C. Clarke's novel and movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey is an example
of artistic insight illuminating the effects of dishonesty on mental health.
