Andrius is so deep and abstract that nobody understands his private language. Finally, an illustrated handbook!
Since 1982, when I was 17, I have developed a private language to talk about absolute truth. I want to write it down as a 200 page e-book and make it accessible. How can I connect with people on such abstract concepts?
I've been asking people around the world, What is your deepest value in life, which includes all of your other values? What is a question that you don't know the answer to, but wish to answer? Our answers are amazingly unique and profound.
Also, people are moved by my art. So half of the book will be a phrasebook based on your values and questions. The other half of the book will be a grammar of how I think about our values and questions and absolutely everything. I will illustrate my book with conceptual diagrams, photos from my art shows, and ideograms based on your deepest values.
For $25, I will create an ideogram of your deepest value, by which I mean a graphic symbol, like a logo, which may combine Egyptian hieroglyphics, Chinese characters, ancient Lithuanian and Sanskrit words, conceptual diagrams and pictures I myself make up. I will include your deepest value and the ideogram in my phrasebook along with an explanation of the symbols that make it up. You will find it next to similar values along with links to pages in my grammar where I've noticed how these values fit in the big picture.
For example, my own deepest value is "living by truth" which I draw using Egyptian hieroglyphics as a feather (truth) on a papyrus clump (life). In the phrasebook, I may place it alongside other values related to "truth" with links to what I write about truth in my grammar.
I think you will truly enjoy my private language. You will appreciate other people and the diversity of what we value. You will understand people of other backgrounds and perspectives. You will be surprised to discover how others mean what you mean, how they say what you have to say. You will yearn for us all to share our intuition. You may hope that an absolute language is possible.
I seek to know and share the absolute truth. But who would want to hear that from me or anybody else? And so I empathize with you - what is your deepest value? - and with many others. I think that my private language and our personal values can foster a culture of deep agreement, universal unity and heartfelt response.
I believe that my talents, which I apply devotedly, are a blessing from God for us all. My creative work, including this book, is thus in the Public Domain, copyright-free, for all to share freely, and reuse freely, using their own best judgement. I will also make my book available by print-on-demand as well as a free e-book.
Would you like to be included but don't have money? If you post on your website or your Facebook page about your deepest value in life, and the question you wish to answer, along with a link to my Kickstarter project, then - if I reach my goal - I will give you the reward at the $50 level! Please leave a comment with a link to your post!

It's important for me to keep the book from spinning out of control. I'll focus on writing the "ABC's" of my philosophy and state the harder issues as "open questions". The book has two parts: the grammar (how I think) and the phrasebook (what you might say, your values and questions) and so I can focus on the latter. I will compile your values and questions in early drafts and keep referring to them in my theoretical grammar.
