About Selenic

The Anthropocosmos

Anthropocosm is a word which describes a way of being, and an awareness of a fundamental truth. Anthropocosm describes the true state of reality, wherein meaning and value emerges from the intertwining of all living things, and the world we inhabit, in a seamless fabric of being. It is the true and natural state of being. It points to the belief that all things possess a soul, spirit, or energy, and that humanity exists in sacred relation to the All - the Cosmos.

As a patron you will gain insight into the reflections of Anthropocosm as seen through my art and writings. You will have exclusive access to my creator notes and see new artworks before I share them on Instagram. There will also be artworks shared only with my patrons. Plant medicine, ancestral remembrance, ritual, shamanic practice, deep ecology, mythology, alchemy and tarot are some of the other forms I will be delving into here. For those of you with me on this journey, who know what it means for an artist to have the support of community, my warmest and most heartfelt gratitude flows your way. Thank you.

I invite you to explore the work and offerings below. If you'd like to know more, read on.



Ways of Being

Anthropocosm rests upon a philosophy that might alternatively be known as Animism. Animists know that for humans, animals, and the ecology to exist in harmony, we must live in a way that honours the intricate relationship that exists between all beings. This is important because Animists recognise that we are all of nature, and in living from a greater awareness of our connection to the whole Earth, we come to know a rich and fertile joy in being human.

These ways are in fact quite simple, but to many, not even a simple description would suffice to make sense. They would likely appear to be "New Age", "hippy", or otherwise irrelevant. In fact, Anthropocosm and Animism refer to very, very old ways of being. Our most ancient ancestors lived from these principles. They stand in direct opposition to the materialist and capitalist nature of our world today. This overculture, which brainwashes us into accepting that life is solely about being a productive consumer, has brought more and more of our communities to addiction, chronic illness, pollution, anger, depression, suicide, hopelessness, and extinction, for over a century. In sharing the work that I do, I hope to show others that there are in fact harmonious and healthy ways of living as a human today, for the benefit of all life.

As it is, we are dealing here in attempts to describe ways of being, thinking, and feeling, that are beyond description. Such attempts most often bring us only to the feeble abilities of language (particularly English). Nevertheless, this brief description will serve, I hope, to introduce you to this work and the life-changing truth of Anthropocosm.
