The term "Eschaton" references the concept of a heaven-like end state in history, often referred to in political theory. Eric Voegelin popularized the notion of "immanentizing the eschaton" in the 1950s, describing it as the drive to create a heavenly realm on Earth. This idea stems from a sense of social alienation and the belief in overcoming worldly disorder through profound insights.
The series draws inspiration from this concept, as well as the idea of the universe being pulled toward an inevitable future. T. McKenna posited that "the universe is pulled toward a complex attractor that exists ahead of us in time, and our ever-accelerating speed through the phenomenal world of connectivity and novelty is based on the fact that we are now very, very close to the attractor." The artworks thus encapsulate a journey toward a predetermined point in time, resonating with the broader theme of seeking order and meaning in the universe.
