Man is created in God's image. God is THE CREATOR. God gave man creative power. Man has created the arts which seem to serve man as a pastime, an entertainment, a starting point for conversation, a way to relaxation, a way of expression, a source of income and a means to influence others.
But art does not have the practical uses that come from the sciences. Through them, man can create better means for survival, for comfort, for transportation, for production, for entertainment, nourishment, for study of his environment and the exploration of more distant environments.
Could there not be a harmony, like the yin and yang in eastern wisdom? Could not art be the yin, the feminine and passive nature and science be the yang?
What if man starts a science by asking a question and then seeks answers? What if the ones who most energetically seek, making many sacrifices along the way, become rewarded with a part of an answer that is created by man collectively from his collective psyche? What if the stars began as lights in the sky and then through man's quest, he, man, collectively caused them to have substance that could be observed and measured through man's created instruments?
The Lord said, "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened." (Mat. 7:7,8) This could apply to many levels.
I'm not looking for crtics or destroyers here. I'm looking for creators here. People who can collectively create, in order to learn answers from ourselves through the creative power that God breathed into our ancestor.
When mankind works together, even in relatively small groups, much can be achieved. Usually, and historically, man has worked against man. That is a terrible waste of energy and creativity from both sides neutralizing each other. But if we can bring the yin and the yang, the male and the female, the strong and the subtle elements of mankind into balance, can we not create some wonderful concept of use and benefit to all?
Can we not discover a great reservoir of God's creative power within His crowning creation, through shared contemplation of both the visible universe through science, and the invisible universe through spiritual contemplation, to realize man's potential as both a physical and spiritual being of God's making?
Creative ideas please? John
