This artwork springs from an opening moment to a mind-blowing vision experienced in 2012, which culminated in the sensations depicted in my 2013 illustration Neurocosmic. A few days before starting this piece I found an old sketch of the moment, showing me sitting upon the ground as the vision began to take hold, and suddenly getting a very clear sense that, since it was night, the Sun was beneath me. My perspective leapt from my own to the Sun's point of view and the phrase 'boy under the earth' (meaning me, as viewed from the Sun) came to my mind. This image stayed with me as the more intense sensations of the vision begin to unfold, and although this artwork is intended to depict me, at night, at the top, it is also intended to be 180 degrees reversible, with the Sun at the top, mirroring my flip in perspective during this moment.
