To be human is to create, therefore, as humans we MUST create.
We need freedom to create in our everyday life just for health maintenance purposes. Otherwise our solution-seeking creativity comes into play, as our creativity just cannot be stopped. All crime as we know it is solution seeking creativity of a kind.
If we do not allow our individual selves creativity, we are allowing ourselves to decline. The result is a chronic stifling, a depression, a fading, a reducing, a dulling… Our solution-seeking creativity reignites a spark inside us, and really is a health mechanism from a deeper wiser part of ourselves.
Our systems and structures must also allow for a creative, and creatively developing and changing, body of people.
Recognizing that we are fundamentally a creating machine,;) and the answer to why we have the size and structure brain we do, needs to come before we will adjust our systems and structures.
Our brain is large, that it is made up of surplus space FOR creative purposes. The very intent at thought CREATES the neuron synaptic pathway for that thought to travel.
There was an enormous fuss made due to the size brain a human had when it was discovered and made known. Oh how superior some of our ancestors assumed we were, but only used this information to take on other lands at speed, before others of another language did. And also it was contrived that different looking people (the ones with the weapons, ships, poverty, ill-health, misery and chronic relative emotional and mental illness) were more superior still, due to the shape of their head, allowing for a presumed EVEN LARGER brain. 😉
My mother had a thing about my head being all wrong…too Asian she said.
Yet we have still NEVER got our heads around 😉 WHY we have this size brain, and incorporated this into our lives!
I repeat : Our brain is large, that it is made up of surplus space FOR creative purposes. The very intent at thought CREATES the neuron synaptic pathway for that thought to travel.
We are still stuck with old books hinging upon the work of fantastic artist/scientist Leonardo de Vinci, who himself was needing to update the inadequate medical books available in his century on the human being. I feel in good company then, as I too am finding such inadequacies in what is known of our species, that I am driven to do something myself.
The English language – the language in which I write and you read, irrespective of where on our planet you may be – was chronically obsessed with their own superiority, and in the establishment of themselves in control of everyone else in order that they could reap the rewards, to add to a struggling economy.
All of this was done at speed and in fear of being ‘overcome’.
There has never been an opportunity – or even a window for opportunity – of anyone saying “O.K folks! Let’s take some time out from the stock exchange, printing press, political, military, defence, domestic and economic interests, while we update our knowledge of ourselves.” And no “OK lets do that, I am sure the other countries will happily give us that time! ”
They have always been living out the familiarity programming of fear, of ‘overcome or be overcome’, ‘kill of be killed’, as the emotionally ill population they largely were.
How can we possibly create systems and structures, around and in support of our lives, IF WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT WE ARE ENTIRELY? 😀
We cannot, and why we are engaged in activities better suited to chimps, ants, dogs, robots even…but not yet Humans! 🙂
