How to identify mindprint types and structure in art Mindprint the subconscious art code Structural art analysis using mindprint

The mindprint model of archetype in culture, update 2019

The five subconscious, structured layers of expression globally, are (a) typological characters with specific optional features; (b) type sequence, clockwise or anti-clockwise; (c) axial grid between eyes or focal points of pairs of opposite types; (d) three pairs of polar junctures, implying three planes of expression; (e) orientation of polar pairs vertical or horizontal to the ground-line or a cardinal direction, co-incidental with the seasonal time-frame of the local culture.

Types could be labelled after any popular set, such as species, myths or months. Generic labels, such as social functions, avoid the false impression of diffusion from one particular medium or culture. Correspondence theories are often misled by recurrent archetypal features, or by inevitable cross-references between media and cultures, into assuming diffusion, and ignoring the innate roles of nature in culture.

Mindprint or stoneprint model of character types, in their peripheral sequence, as pairs of opposites forming an axial grid of eyes, with five polar points of limb joints or junctures.

Characters expressing the types always have their eyes (except a womb at 11, and a heart at 12/13; or interior focal points in built sites), on an axial grid, formed by standard pairs (1v8, 2v9, etc). Our works also express two ‘galactic’ polar points (4p v 11p); and two galactic crossings (7g v 15g); and three polar points: Midsummer or Celestial Pole (cp), Midwinter or Celestial South Pole (csp); and Ecliptic Pole at the axial centre. Polar points are not on eyes, but on limb joints (or junctures in built sites). Four of the types could be double, as they are in the figure (1v8, 2v9; and 5a v12, 5b v13); or single (2v9 and 5v13 only); thus the total is usually twelve, fourteen or sixteen. Some other pairs may also be doubled in complex artworks or built sites. The axial grid always confirms the peripheral sequence.

Here is the January 2019 update of typological features, and their global average frequencies.

Axial graph of percentages of the seven most common features, of the minimal twelve types, and four border types. Adjacent types 1/2, 5a/5b, 8/9, and 12/13 share features at nearly the same frequencies, thus their data are currently combined. These may be differentiated in further study.

Type label; recurrent features of characters in any artwork, built site, or craft set, in peripheral sequence, with average frequencies:

1 /2 Builder; twist 44%, cluster 23%, bovid 19%, bird 19%, tower 18%, build 14%, sack 10%, hero 10%, book 8%, rain,

2c Basket; weave 25%, container20% instrument 20%, shoulder-hump 20%, hat 15%, throne 10%, snake 10%,

3 Queen; neck-bend 31%, dragon 19%, sacrifice 17%, queen 13%, school 12%, spring 10%, fish 6%, ram 4%,

4 King; squat 30%, rectangle 28%, king  22%, twins 13%, sun 12%, bird 10%, fish 8%, furnace 8%, field 5%,

4p Galactic South Pole; limb-joint 67%; juncture 17% (spout 12%, stream, speech,

5a/5b Priest; varicoloured 37%, priest 34%, hyperactive 33%, tailcoat-head 32%, assembly 30%, horizontal 28%, water 24%, heart 24%, large 24%, bovid 20%, winged 14%, invert 12%, reptile 10%, sash 8%, equid, ascend,

6 Exile; in/egress 58%, horned 44%, sacrifice 30%, small 14%, U-shape 13%, double-head 12%, caprid 8%,

7 Child; rope 24%, juvenile 24%, bag 22%, unfold 13%, beheaded 10%, chariot 8%, mace 6%, off-grid,

7g Galactic Centre; limb-joint 38%; juncture 34% (throne, altar, spiral, tree, staff); path/gate 18%; water 16%,

8/9 Healer; bent 28%, strong 28%, pillar 28%, heal 22%, disc 14%, metal 8%,

9c Basket Lid; disc/hat 27%, instrument 25%, reveal 16%, hump 15%, weave 8%,

10 Teacher; W-shape 44%, staff 36%, hunt master 24%, guard 20%, metal 14%, market 14%, disc 12%, council 11%, snake 8%, ecology 8%, school 6%, wheel,

11 Womb; womb 88%, wheat 15%, water 14%, tomb 11%, interior 8%, library 8%, law 5%, felid 5%,

11p Gal. Pole; limb-joint 64% (hand 12%, elbow 10%, foot 12%, etc); juncture 24% (door 12%, corner, etc),

12/13 Heart; heart 83%, felid 42%, death 34%, rounded 21%, invert 14%, weapon 11%, war 9%, water-work 8%,

13c Basket-Head; oracle 14%, head 14%, weave 8%, ship,

14 Mixer; in/egress 43%, time 28%, tree 20%, angel 15%, bird 11%, antelope 10%, dancer 8%, felid 8%, reptile 4%,

15 Maker; churn 44%, rope 28%, order 27%, rampant 26%, bag 20%, mace 16%, doubled 16%, face 12%, canid 12%, sceptre 11%, smite 8%, reptile 8%, winged 8%,

15g Galactic Gate; junction 30% (river 10%); limb-joint 12%,

The five polar features also have global average frequencies. The axial centre is usually unmarked at about 60%, or on a limb-joint or juncture. Midsummer (cp) is on a limb joint 54%, or juncture 24%. Midwinter (csp) is on a limb joint 46%, or juncture 24%. One of the polar axles is on the horizontal plane 50%, or vertical plane 12% (or on a north-south meridian or east-west latitude in a built site).

Polar markers usually place midsummer on or near type 12, 13, 14 or 15, implying spring and the cultural time-frame 90 degrees earlier (in seasonal terms), in Age Taurus1, Taurus2, Aries3 or Pisces4. The spring type is often confirmed by some kind of prominence of the character expressing type 1, 2, 3 or 4.

The general theme of a work is indicated by features that are prominent, or shared by three or more characters. Works or sets express about 60% of the already known 100 optional, measurable, recurrent features. The identified features are not of conscious design. Structural or ‘grammatical’ layers of expression are subconscious to artists, architects, builders, crafters, and members of any culture. Rigorous average frequencies and consistency through ages, also rule out nurture. The full repertoire appears in the oldest examples, in Ice Age art of about BC 26 000 (Furter 2014), ruling out accumulation of idiosyncratic ‘ideas’, and of localised cultural ‘frameworks’, as some anthropologists and rock art archaeologists believe (Lewis-Williams and Pierce 2012).

Rennes les Bains as New Jerusalem

Rennes les Bains in southern France had attracted several cosmic visions. The Blanque-Sals confluence is a kind of Baptismal Font, mixing 5a Magdalene source’s sulphur ‘tears’, ‘White’ Blanque water from 6 Lovers source, ‘Health Bottle’ trickle from 3 Mud Clots source, into salt water from under Mt Bugarach (see Rennes les Bains 5a; and Rennes le Chateau church plan 5; in other posts). Magdalene of Galilee, of hot and salt water for preserving fish and bread, married John Evangelist and moved to France with Lazarus, in Varagine’s Golden Legend.

If the Blanque-Sals confluence  were a Galilee, and its axial opposite at 12 Sals-Rialsesse confluence were a Dead Sea; then Sals is a Jordan; Montferrand a Jericho; and Bains a Jerusalem. Legends are often re-located, partly since the same features are recognised everywhere under different names. The Sals basin also resembles a rectangular walled paradise, bounded east by Montferrand, Cornes, and Soulane hills on the Paris meridian, with three paths; south by Treasure Chest ridge, Charbonniere, with a river ‘gate’ in its middle; west by Rennes plateau with four paths; north by the Rialsesse valley where Cardou and Blanchefort hills flank the river exit ‘gate’.

New Jerusalem (Iconum Biblicarum, 1630, Strasbourg). All cultures claim a cosmic city, including Babylonia, India, Cambodia, China (see Furter 2016; Stoneprint). Yet all cultures subconsciously build specific cosmic elements into all their works (see Stoneprint Journal 3: Paris. Stoneprint Journal 4: London).

Ulpian (2015) saw a larger area as New Judea, backdrop to his gospel sequel of John Baptist crucified by Pilate, and Christ escaping the Sanhedrin to Egypt to stoke resistance; then to organise churches from Narbonne or Couiza (see Rennes le Chateau map, type 11, in another post); to dictate Revelation to the other John; and to write letters to rebel churches as a ‘resurrected’ king with two sons, instigating the burning of Nero’s Rome. Ulpian’s landscape corners are south-west hill Val Dieu, Valley of God; and south-east Bugarach Mt. In Rev21;10, an ‘angel’ demonstrates from “a great high mountain… holy Jerusalem descending out of heaven… a high wall, twelve gates, angels, tribes, foundations, apostles… a golden reed to measure the city, gates, and wall… 144 cubits (66m) high”, or ‘thick’ in some translations. Serbairou foothill is a rectangle, its features expressing types 5a, 5b, 5c and 6. Archetypal features of 5 include world, ascension, benediction, ritual, assembly, water, angel, judgement, and corner guards (see Tarot trump 5 Pope, and its magnitudes, 20 Judgement and 21 World. See the Types, trumps and hour decans table, in another post). Only subconscious expression could explain the consistent structure in natural and cultural media.

Joyeuse, palace of privilege, romance and tragedy

At Couiza’s river ford market, Visigoths built a palace with courtyard, moat, crypts, cold room and a tunnel. Its features through the ages expressed type 11 Womb (see Rennes le Chateau map type 11, in another post). Local Cathars lost the palace against royalist crusader Simon de Montfort in the Battle of the Sals (Rialsesse) in 1209. Montford’s commander, Pierre de Voisins, was awarded Couiza and Rennes.

He rebuilt the river palace 1211 and 1231 -1250. Voisins members built Arques corral in 1294. A Voisin daughter married PR d’Hautpoul, who gained Rennes castle in 1422. The last Voisin, Francois, married Jean de Joyeuse 1524. They gained rights to supply wine, olive oil and wheat (also a type 11 feature) to the crown. Joyeuse was made governor of Narbonne, and Lt-Gen of Languedoc.

The couple rebuilt Joyeuse 1540 -1562. Its trapezium plan could incidentally picture constellation Cassiopeia, or Cepheus, or Pegasus. The road from its entrance chapel once ran to Couiza’s St John Baptist church. Joyeuse and his son Guillaume Joyeuse III were bishops of Alet les Bains. Guillaume was a Franciscan pacifist, yet ironically Marshall of France in 1561.

Guillaume’s first son, Duke Anne, was born here, but raised in Toulouse and Navarre. He used Poussin’s father, uncle of baron Arques (see another post; Archetype lives also in Arcadia), as financial advisor (noted Patton). His brother François was a cardinal. Alet Protestants pillaged Couiza and Joyeuse in 1577, probably asking ransom for the vicountess and children. Guillaume and Duke Anne joined annual expeditions against Huguenot protestants in Languedoc and Auvergne with enthusiasm.

The king heaped titles on Anne; Mt St Michel governor; Grand Admiral of France; wedlock to the king’s sister in law, a Mercœur. As Protestant civil violence subsided, Anne repaired Joyeuse. He was made Governor of Normandy, and of Le Havre. The brothers shared Anjou and Alençon. He killed 800 Huguenots in Poitou, the St Eloi massacre of 21 June 1587, a rash duty. He led the army against Huguenots and the king’s arch enemy, Henry of Navarre, but was taken near Bordeaux. He offered a large ransom, but was executed. Anne’s niece sold Joyeuse to the infrastructure investor Claude de Réhé in 1649. Nobles and clergy fled France in the Revolution. The roof collapsed in 1928. Joyeuse was restored after WW2 as a hotel.

Joyeuse castle or palace in Couiza. Its history and legends form part of the grail romances. Duke Anne, foremost noble of France, was born here. He employed Poussin’s father, uncle of baron Arques, as financial advisor. See a Poussin painting with an Arques scenes, in another post; Archetype lives also in Arcadia. (Photo: Belcaire Pyrenees).
