If the human perceptual system is capable of processing information not only in the brain but in the whole body, then artistic creations are the expression of individual impressions independent of an environment. This seems only possible when inner images and inner dialogues can be developed.
While inner dialogues are the realm of poets, psychotherapists, and others, inner images are still very mysterious even they serve as the basis for the individual view of the world.
Inner images and dialogues make it possible to develop very abstract mental processes, which do not have to do anything with the general reality. But as much as a separation from reality can be helpful for unknown realms as well as personal development, without a connection to the information flow of social structures, inner images and inner dialogues get lost in self-constructed fantasy worlds.
This is nothing unusual for artists and poets either. In the ideal case, every creative activity succeeds in becoming one with the inner images and inner dialogues in order to express these freely. In everyday life, on the other hand, inner dialogues and especially inner images are hardly noticed. This technique, which is constantly used to process reality, is very important to create a specific view of the world out of many collected impressions and talks for a most suitable (survival) life. This world view need not be subject to a formalized logic. The truly unique thing about such an internally anchored image of the world is the fact, that in extreme cases a single icon can be used as the basis for mastering any situation in everyday life.
In everyday life, a world view becomes a personalized world vision of individual experiences and is therefore constantly being developed, refined, reviewed, and seeking confirmation. The size and range of a worldview depend not only on geographical parameters but primarily on how far one can personally look into the world and how much one has already seen of the world.
