The Spherites
The project is based on a fictional story of the sect which existed in Kronshtadt at the end of the 1960s. The founder of the sect was Vera Pavlova, a worker of the Kronstadt Ship Repair Plant. One day Pavlova found a large gray hemisphere with a smaller sphere beside it in the factory yard. She could not understand what their purpose was. This discovery made a big impression on her. She saw a symbol of unity in that sphere.An important awareness opened up to her in that moment.Vera tried to transmit this knowledge to others, and succeeded in forming a sect. The main practice of sectarians was the development of spherical perception, which is the basis of consciousness, as opposed to the focusing mode of perception, which is optional. The use of focusing perception has a polarizing effect and creates duality. Spherical perception guides the practitioner towards integrity and harmonization. The members of the sect explored the inner space of their mind and tried to move from focusing to spherical perception. To do this they used a “Spheroscope”, spherical drawings and a special way of concentration. Theirs was an original approach of the development of consciousness beyond existing religious teachings. Speaking about original way of development of consciousness the project explores relationship of the individual spiritual experience and social religious traditions.
