The term debunk originated in a 1923 novel Bunk, by American novelist William Woodward (1874–1950), who used it to mean to "take the bunk out of things." (source)

Since none of us (as far as I know) were their when the artists painted or sculpted their subjects, who knows what was on their minds when they made such art work? Could they have been Picasso like artists who liked to do very weird stuff, or did they actually paint what they saw?

I think Picasso was more about breaking boundaries in Art and challenging the established standards of what 'Art' was at the time. His Cubist paintings sought to escape the constraints of the Fine Art expectations. Like others, he was heavily influenced by the 'primitive art' of Africa and Spain. He's not amongst my favorite artists, but I wouldn't rush to explain his art as being influenced by aliens.
Originally posted by KandinskyA good question might be...if 'all art comes from the astral realms,' from where do they get it? Art does come from the subconscious, but it can also be very conscious too. By that I mean, it's possible to create great art with methodical deliberation.
