'Ouroboros' draws inspiration from deep ecology, time and space, and string theory.
A passage that helped inspire this composition...
'This symbol (Ouroboros) appears principally among the Gnostics and in the broadest sense, it is symbolic of time and of the continuity of life. It sometimes bears the caption Hen to pan - ' The One, the All,' as in the codex Marcianus, for instance, of the 2nd century A.D. It has also been explained as the union between the chthonian (underworld) signified by the bird ( a synthesis which can also be applied to the dragon). Ruland contends that this proves that it is a variant of the symbol for Mercury - the duplex god. In some versions of the Ouroboros, the body os half light and half dark, alluding in this way to the successive counterbalancing of opposing principles as illustrated in the Chinese Yang-Yin symbol for instance. Evola asserts that it represents the dissolution of the body or the universal serpent which ( to quote the Gnostic saying ) 'passes through all things'. Poison, the viper and the universal solvent are all symbols of the undifferentiated of the 'unchanging law' which moves through all things, linking them by a common bond... the ouroboros biting its own tail is symbolic of self-fecundation, or the primitive idea of a self-sufficient Nature - a Nature, that is, which a'la Nietzsche, continually returns, within a cyclic pattern, to its own beginning.'
~ Spanish psychologist & philosopher J.E. Cirlot,
