“But for the sake of this fierce dispute (…) this revelation was given to me (…). But what (…) may follow after this I do not wholly know (…). For when the lightning rises at the centre he looks through it, but he doubtless cannot comprehend it.” Jakob Böhme

A drastic vision of the rebirth of the Estonian Republic after fifty years of Soviet occupation: Materia prima and the dualism between East and West.

“The whole outward visible world with all its essence is a signification or figure of the inward spiritual world; all that is inward and what its effects are has its outward character, too.” Jakob Böhme

In the poetry of “Substantia Stellaris”, as in Dadaism and Surrealism, everything that’s dead or living in the tangible world has a signature that refers to the incomprehensible.
