Parents and their surrounding, teachers from school and lecturers from university I graduated, all mainly being researchers and adepts of natural sciences, were teaching and making me to look at the world through the eyes of a scientist, which means to disintegrate, inquire, understand, explain and model everything by the laws of nature. However since childhood I was rebelling against this strict, colorless and schematic perception of the world dictated to me, and I was trying to unravel in these plain physical models the invisible, indescribable, hidden, and disappearing some other kind of unidentified and mysterious metaphysical beauty.
