      Invisible Entities and their influence of our lives. I generally agree with your ideas concerning science and meditation. Moreover: My experience concerning spiritual thinking, sensing and feeling shows me that there are two systems, where they act. A bipolar system by a manifold of forms inside light. A singular system by invisible forms. The invisible book series seeks to create an artistic expression of what is unseen and unsaid but palpable and ever-present in our lives. We all carry with us the regret of amends unmade. Apologies never spoken, both trivial and weighty, rest on the tip of our tongue.
