PROLEGOMENA.

Gazing on the heavens on a starry evening, we see, furthermore to
myriads of glowing worlds floating within the air, an outstanding volume of
nebulæ--either decayed platforms of worlds, or worlds in formation.
Worlds that have misplaced their centre of gravity and fallen to items; or
worlds that are looking, in accordance with the final legislations of gravitation,
to shape a primary physique through the allure of cosmical ether. The one
phenomenon is that of destruction, the opposite that of recent formation.

This double strategy is consistently repeating itself within the development
of paintings. Consciously or unconsciously, the artists of the different
nations, at various classes, commit themselves to the dissolution
or reconstruction of creative items. To turn into familiar with
this approach, to track the weather from which paintings is equipped up, or the
influences which engender a dissolution of inventive types, is of the
greatest importance.

Art has to be appeared upon because the out of the ordinary results of sure religious,
social, highbrow, and ordinary stipulations. to track these
conditions, their beginning, impact, and sluggish improvement, by means of means
of a serious and old research into the explanations which
produced them, could be our activity. For artwork is sort of a replicate: whatever
looks into it truly is mirrored via it. If a bad, untrained imagination
stares into it, nobody needs to be astonished that terrible and distorted
images result.

It is mostly approved as a truism that the essence of paintings is the
reproduction of nature. anyplace, then, nature have been mirrored in
the ‘Art-mirror,’ we should always have the simplest murals. yet this is
not so. For artwork has to mirror the phenomena of the makrokosm as
a subjectively-conceived mikrokosm. we don't see issues as they
really are, as every one factor is surrounded by means of a thick fog of incidental,
objective, and subjective peculiarities. This fog has to be cleared
away, to teach us nature within the brilliant colors of highbrow and
self-conscious idealisation.

Nature furnishes us with mortar and stones for the development, yet the
architect’s highbrow energy has to rearrange those parts, and to
bring them into a creative form. Nature furnishes us with flowers,
trees, animals and males; however the decorative clothier or painter has to
reproduce and to team them for you to provoke the varieties of nature with
an highbrow power.

We study this challenge utilizing versions like Fuzzy Cognitive Maps (FCM), Fuzzy Relational Maps (FRM) and newly developed Fuzzy Dynamical approach (and their Neutrosophic Analogues). the problem of imposition of Vedic arithmetic into the college curriculum consists of spiritual politics, caste supremacy, except straight forward mathematics so we use fuzzy and neutrosophic ideas to realize acute perception into how scholars were affected due to this politically inspired syllabus revision.
