The Nature of Physical Creation
What is the nature of Physical Creation? There are a variety of answers to this question. The answer we give depends on what it is we desire to understand about Physical Creation. What is provided here is a creativity perspective on the nature of Physical Creation and the aspects which have been found which seem to have the greatest influence in holding our creativity sacred.
The greatest issue we face in trying to understand the nature of Physical Creation is we are viewing Physical Creation from the perspective of being a human being. This, in turn, significantly biases our perspective and what we come to understand about Physical Creation. In studying Physical Creation what we will find is that at the most fundamental levels, Physical Creation does not work the way our mind normally sees it working. It has taken humanity centuries to understand this fact. In understanding it, we are revolutionizing the human experience of Physical Creation.
The nature of Physical Creation and the human physical experience are integrally linked. Most importantly, the human physical experience is a product of Physical Creation. Our mind, which we rely upon for most of our thinking, is a product of this larger creative process and a product of the experiences we have had in this unfolding process. As a part of the process we cannot see the whole process for what it is. As such many aspects of the experience we have, or will have, as a human being are controlled by Physical Creation. Additionally, we are an unfoldment within Physical Creation, whatever that unfoldment may be. As we unfold our perception changes. Some call it aging and/or maturity. But it is much more than that.
It has taken humanity centuries to uncover and unravel some essential properties of Physical Creation, what it means to be a human being and the essence of the nature of the creative spirit which animates our life. And there is still more to be revealed. In this regard, this topic on the "Nature of Physical Creation" and the topic "To have a physical experience as a human," should probably be studied at the same time.
To study the depth and breadth of Physical Creation involves many diverse disciplines spanning the range of the physical and biological sciences and engineering. Nevertheless, to become a conscious creator, it is beneficial to understand the nature of Physical Creation relative to our creativity and what creative activities are or are not influenced by Physical Creation.
The environment and the creation are integrally connected. As such we are in what is called a feedback loop. When the environment of Physical Creation changes we change and our perspective will change. When we change and how our perception changes, we respond differently to Physical Creation and cause something different to occur in Physical Creation. However, although our perception may change, how we respond to any experience we have and what we understand about what we experience is not determined by Physical Creation. It is determined by how awake and aware, or how asleep and unaware, we are of what is occurring and what we think and believe about what is occurring. It is determined by how willing we are to know ourselves and how well we learn to know ourselves. Unless we step out of how and what we think and believe and take the position of detached witness we will not see Physical Creation for what is it.
The essence of Physical Creation is the manifestation of energy. All is composed of energy. All operates, functions or is animated by energy. Energy is the "stuff" out of which Physical Creation forms. How and why Physical Creation came into existence and why it has taken the form it has is open to question. It is the opinion within the Releasing Your Unlimited Creativity understanding that energy and consciousness are different expressions of the same material out of which Creation forms and it is a desire, choice or intention of the consciousness within the energy of Physical Creation which manifested physical Creation. In any case the essence of Physical Creation is energy.
In regards to all that humanity has learned about energy and consciousness in humanityís study of Physical Creation, all is applicable to the creativity perspective and holding our creativity sacred. However, a note of caution does need to be added. The note is to allow effectiveness to be our measure of truth when applying anything that humanity thinks it has learned relative to Physical Creation, especially about how consciousness works. What has been learned in both the physical sciences and the biological sciences relative to understanding energy and consciousness has evolved over time. For example the concept of the atom is quite different now around 2007 than it was when the idea of atoms was first manifested around 1907 by the human intellect. Similarly how our mind functions as also similarly evolving and has changed dramatically over the years.
Relative to what humanity has learned about the unseen realms of Creation that intersect with Physical Creation is open to much greater debate. Here again the recommendations it to allow effectiveness to be our measure of truth but we must also become much more observant as a detached witness to see what is really happening. Relative to the unseen realms of Physical Creation and/or the unseen realms that intersect Physical Creation, individuals often do the right thing for the wrong reason or the wrong thing for the right reason. What is provided here about the nature of Physical Creation and in the Releasing Your Unlimited Creativity material are observations and lessons learned of many individuals that help us to access our birthright and unlimited creativity to hold our creativity sacred and access the depth and breadth of our creative ability and creative power.
What is provided here is a discussion on the nature of Physical Creation as it influences our creativity and our creative ability and creative power as seen from the creativity perspective. Since the creativity perspective used here encompasses the equivalency of energy and consciousness, it encompasses all that has been learned about Physical Creation in the physical and biological sciences. In this regard, the focus here is not that found in the physical and biological sciences but on how Physical Creation influences our creativity. The recommendation made here is not to accept what is stated here blindly as truth. Rather, you are encouraged to do your own experiments and allow effectiveness to be your measure of truth and come to see what is true for yourself.
Starting where we are (Top): The importance of the nature of Physical Creation on our creativity is that we are here in Physical Creation. To create what we desire in, or from, Physical Creation, we must work with the "rules" governing Physical Creation. For example, there have been individuals in humanity who have always wanted to fly and have had the passion to fly. However, only in understanding how Physical Creation works were individuals able to fulfill that dream. The passion to fly has always been within humanity. But it took developing our creative ability and understanding how Physical Creation works that makes flying possible.
This is true for any creative endeavor we undertake in Physical Creation. Only in understanding the influence Physical Creation has on the experience we desire to create and how to work with those influences can we create what we desire. Some of our creative endeavors will be independent of Physical Creation. In these cases, Physical Creation only serves as the stage on which we create. At other times, Physical Creation controls what we desire to experience. In these cases we must totally work within the rule governing Physical Creation. In these cases, the fact we are an independent consciousness who is also an infinitely creative being is totally irrelevant other than to hold the passion for what we desire to experience and single point focus while working within the rule of Physical Creation.
The rules of Physical Creation (Top): The rules of Physical Creation as of yet are not fully known. We have a pretty good idea of some of them for they have give us the physics, chemistry, medical improvements, and the like. But we do not have all the answers and we may never have them all.
What is important is not knowing them all. Rather what is more important is knowing which ones influence our desired creation. The general statement on the rules of Physical Creation is the more our desired creation is a manipulation of Physical Creation the more we need to know and understand the rules of Physical Creation that influence what we desire to create. The more our creative endeavor involves creating something within the realm of our individuated consciousness, the less we need to know about the rules of Physical Creation. Additional discussion on the rules of Physical Creation is found in the topic, "Rules of Physical Creation."
From a creativity perspective and holding our creativity sacred, Physical Creation is designed to have very specific types and kinds of influences on our creative ability and creative power. To become a conscious creator it is necessary to learn to work with these influences.
Why Physical Creation is designed the way it is is a matter of conjecture and best answered by its creator/Creation. Given the nature of the human mind as discussed within the topic, "The problem of mind and the experience of the Source of Creation - the trap of mind," any human who think they know the actual reason for Physical Creation to be the way it is and/or fully understand what Physical Creation is all about is probably speculating no matter how much of an authority figure or wise they may be. Our mind and its perception is a product of a an unfolding creation within an unfolding creation and, as such will not see the whole picture for what it is.
What is discussed here are some of the influences of Physical Creation that tend to arise again and again when we explore our inherent creativity. To some readers, these observations may appear to be only opinions. However, if we hold our creativity sacred and explore our creativity, we will come to find these only reflect the nature of Physical Creation.
What is discussed here tends to influence on our creative ability. Although there are things we do in Physical Creation which affect and influence our creative power, the influence of Physical Creation is more on our creative ability. Understanding the nature of Physical Creation is more about knowing how to use whatever power we have. Creative power arise from what we feel and having the energy to act. Without the passion and energy to act, nothing will happen. Creative ability is about knowing how to both generate the energy to act, an internal process, and to use what we feel and the energy to act to manifest what we desire to experience, a combination of internal and external.
Physical Creation is a shared reality (Top): Physical Creation is an experience of a shared creation or shared reality within a larger creation. By saying Physical Creation is a shared reality we mean it is where we all live to a common set of "rules." In the case of Physical Creation, our body holds us to the rules. That is, Physical Creation is a reality where we cannot escape the rules of Physical Creation until we leave the body. But, this does not mean we cannot become creatively free while in a physical body. Additional discussion on Physical Creation as a shared reality is discussed in the topic, "Physical Creation is a shared reality."
Physical Creation does not work as we think (Top): Physical and the study of Physical creation reveals that at its most fundamental levels, it does not work the way our mind perceive creation to work. At the energetic level Physical Creation is much different than what we experience with objects of substantial mass. Consciousness tends to function at the energetic level. At the level mind normally perceives and experience Creation, we seen large massive objects obeying what are call the classical or Newtonian laws of Physical and the particle nature of energy consciousness dominates. However, at the atomic level, which gives the structure to the world we inhabit, quantum mechanics, probability and the wave nature of energy consciousness dominates. In many ways Physical Creation is about figuring out how the impossible can become possible, the possible become probable and the probable a certainty.
Physical Creation is a place of feeling (Top): Creation does not occur unless there is a flow energy. What animates Physical Creation and any aspect of Physical Creation is energy. There needs to be a flow of energy for anything to happen. Without a flow of energy there is no movement. Our bodies are designed to feel and there is a gift if pain if we understand what pain is communicating to us. The nature of Physical Creation is a place to experience feeling and to exercise our creative power which arises from what we feel. In being open to feeling and learning to discern what we feel we can being to explore the depth and breadth of Creation.
Physical Creation is a place of duality (Top): Because we are a creation within a creation and as a result of how Physical Creation is designed, we are forced to live in a duality. The Physical Plane forces energy consciousness, the material of creation/Creation, to appear separate as energy and consciousness, Physical Creation appears to be a place of separation without wholeness. Yet, this is only the illusion of Creation in order to have an experience of Creation.
Analogous to the pair production phenomenon, the Physical Plane or Physical Creation, forces energy consciousness, the material of creation/Creation to appear separate and experienced separately as energy and consciousness It is a duality which causes that of which we are made, energy consciousness, to be experienced separately simultaneously as energy localized in all its forms and as consciousness in a localized form of our current mind and ego. Experiencing the duality of energy consciousness is the normal way we experience energy consciousness in Physical Creation. It is to view from the perspective of energy or as consciousness. Our bodies are designed to give us such an experience and hold us to that experience. Additional discussion is found in the topic, "Duality of Creation."
Layers to the creation we experience (Top): Within Physical Creation there are layers to Creation. For example, The human species is part of the mammalian life from of Earth which, in turn, is part of life on earth. The Earth itself is part of a solar system which in turn is part of a galaxy. The galaxy is part of a cluster of galaxies within a Universe of many clusters of galaxies and it is debatable if our universe is similarly part of a collection of Universes within something physically larger as of yet unrealized. In this regard, it can be said an individual human being is eight layers down in creation. Similarly, going downward, within a given life form, there are organs, tissues and cells. In this regard, the physical experience at any level is a creation within a creation and there are many ongoing creation within and without any one experience.
Given the relationship of energy and consciousness, there is a consciousness aspect and an energy aspect to each of these layers. Form a consciousness perspective, each of these layers whether experienced internally or externally give rise to what is normally experiences as a collective consciousness. That is, each of these layers is a collective. As a consciousness, each of these layers have a belief structure and an awareness unto itself. We donít see and experience such collectives because our attention and awareness is focused on being human. Nevertheless they exist and can be experienced as consciousness or a solidified form of energy.
From an energy perspective, nothing occurs in Creation without a flow of energy to give rise to, and animate the creation. As such, each of these layers of Physical Creation represent a flow of energy and can be experienced as an undercurrent of Creation. Being open to feeling and with the proper focus of our attention and awareness we can access any of these flows of energy. Additional discussion is found in the topic, "Layers to Creation."
Composite intentions and undercurrents (Top): Given creations within creations give rise to layers to creation two things need to be realized. One is nothing occurs in Creation without a flow of energy to give rise to, and animate the creation. The second is that the focus of the attention and awareness of a consciousness in the form of an intention which gives rise to a flow of energy. In this regard, the experience of any creation within creation arises from composite of many flows of energy which act as undercurrents pushing any one creation in a given direction. Additionally, any creation within a creation is the fulfillment and expression of as many intentions as there are undercurrents of energy. Additional discussion is found in the topic, "Deep undercurrents of Creation."
World of Om (Top): For whatever reason or purpose, a consciousness, which we call Om, chose to manifest a physical creation in which the energy of energy consciousness manifests as electromagnetic radiation and perceived by a human consciousness as the Physical Creation we experience. In this regard, all that we build and construct in Physical Creation will build up from the rules governing energy as electromagnetic radiation.
Although everything is energy consciousness, any particular environment will only reveal some of its characteristics and attributes. The physical plane emphasizes the localized energy aspects and localized consciousness aspects of energy consciousness as opposed to its wave nature. We can expect that there are attributes of energy consciousness that we experience in the physical plane and there will be attributes that the physical plane will be incapable of expressing. In this regard, we can fully expect a world of "spirit," non physical reality that seems separate and totally unexplainable and different that what is experienced in the physical plane. However that does not mean the realm of spirit or where non physically observed attributes are expressed and the world of the physical are in any way separate. They are one and the same and exist simultaneously together. It is just the nature of the observation and the environment of observation is different. We only need to change how we observe to see them. We change how we observe by how we focus our attention and awareness. That, in turn, is determined by our belief structure. (More on ... the world of Om)
Our inner world is reflected in the outer creating our reality (Top): One problem we all have to face is the person before us, no matter what experience they are providing us, is only manifesting what we desire to experience at some level of being. More often than not, the person is only manifesting what we think and believe it means to be human. The consequence is we do not see what is before as something we called into existence. Rather than looking within and understanding why we called forth what we did, we focus outward we blame others. Hence we never get to the root issue that causes what we experience. The pair production phenomenon provides a way to see how our inner world is reflected in the outer. This phenomenon also explains way it is said that creation/Creation is not done alone. It also provides us a way to "readí our external world to learn how to explore our inner nonconscious world giving rise to the external. It provides a way to make our nonconscious mind conscious.
Ready made materials (Top): Using ready made and prefabricated material is much easier and quicker than having to start from raw materials and make everything we use. It takes much less time and energy to "get on" with our creative endeavors. The Physical Creation we experience as human uses ready made and prefabricated materials. That is, we use energy which has already taken form based on the rules of Physical Creation to construct the world we experience. All we need to do is to follow the rules of Physical Creation to create our desired experience.
Physical Creation is predatory (Top): One of the "laws of physics" in Physical Creation is energy can neither be created or destroyed, only transformed. What this means is anything that is created must destroy or consume some existing energy either in form or flowing into form. Otherwise, we will always live with the past and that which has already been created. The transformation of energy is only part of the sacrifice of creation in the creative process.
What this actually means is that we live in a predatory universe. We will all eat something spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically in order to live. There is also a very good change we will have give ourselves over to become the food spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically for a new creation. Our masculine aspect is what will take and eat. Analogously to the way a woman nourishes the fetus in her womb, it is our feminine aspect which will be become the food for the new creation. Because others will take and eat of us and we will give ourselves over to be eaten in some way, Physical Creation seems to give rise to a victim consciousness which we cannot seem to escape. However, in understanding the creative process, paradoxically, we can learn to surrender and yet find an exquisite true creative freedom to being to access the depth and breadth of our unlimited creativity.
Physical Creation is an unfolding creation (Top): Physical Creation is an unfoldment. There is an ebb and flow to any creation. Ultimately, the energy flows into form from the Source of Creation that place of "no-thing-ness" in response to the focus of the attention and awareness of consciousness and dissolves back out of form into the Source. Physical creation as it exists is only for a time period. There will be a time when Physical Creation will no longer exists in its current form. It is only part of the ebb and flow of an, on going, never ending creative process.
A place of limitation for the sake of an experience (Top): As a shared creation, any independent point of consciousness choosing to experience Physical Creation will needed to limited its creativity in some way in order to have a physical experience. Although it is an infinitely creative being with an inherent and unlimited creativity it agrees to "play" or create by the rules of Physical Creation. The physical experience of being a human being is only one type and kind of experience an independent point of consciousness can have. We do not experience other possible physical experiences only because we have not focused our attention and awareness to create these other experiences. To do would require us to access similar but different limitations on our unlimited creativity. Additional discussion is found in the topic, "Limitation for the sake of an experience."
Unfoldment from seed conditions (Top): What is important to realize about the nature of Physical Creation is that things and experiences grown and evolve from a seed condition. In this regard, Physical Creation is a place of unfoldment. We, as are all creations within Creation, are an unfolding creation within an unfolding Creation. Relative to our creative endeavors, we create the conditions then see it and unfold and the consequences of what we create. Awareness of the unfoldment allows us to consciously participate in a cause effect chain in this awareness we can become the cause for the next effect.
Since Physical Creation is an unfoldment, change take time to unfold in Physical Creation. Although the energy of Creation instantaneously shifts to manifest the desired creation, how fast a desire manifests depended on how consciousness has focused its attention and awareness and its purpose/intention for awakening within in Physical Creation. How long it takes is determined by how free the energy is release and able to into manifestation without obstruction.
Additionally, Physical Creation is a realm of growth, evolution and unfoldment. Things need to grow and unfold in Physical Creation according to the rule of Physical Creation. For example, if we want fresh tomatoes picked off the plant, we must first be in a part of the world where we can grow tomatoes. If we move to where we can grow tomatoes, we may be unable to plant the tomatoes until the season changes to support the pants growth. Then, even when we plant the seeds, water and nourish the plant, it will take about sixty to eighty days to get our tomato. Even if we are willing to do everything as required when required, some things take time.
The approach to take is to create the correct seed conditions and the conditions for the seed to fall on fertile soil within proper conditions to readily germinate, take root and grow. As with modern genetics, the seed we plant can be tailored to the conditions in which the seed will be planted. Or, the environment can be modified to suit the seed. What is best for us depends on the starting conditions.
The desires of Om (Top): For reasons discussed in the topic, "The world of Om," Physical Creation is seen as the creation of a consciousness who had/has a desire. As such there are things it desires to have unfold. Any independent point of consciousness which awaken within Physical creation plays are role or part in fulfilling the desire of this consciousness Om. In many ways each independent point of consciousness awakening within Physical Creation are like cells in a organism. The organism is the unfoldment of the desire of Om. As such, the unfoldment of Physical Creation can be seen as river flowing to the sea and any creation within Physical Creation is a boat floating along in that river. In this regards, there are experiences one will have in the boat that are not predestined but there are experiences that are inevitable. Exactly what is actually experienced may not be know but the type and kind of experience can be known simply because of the terrain through which the river must flow to reach the sea.
An awareness within Physical Creation (Top): As a result of how energy and consciousness are equivalent, there is a consciousness within, and encompasses, Physical Creation. Similarly there is a consciousness within, and encompasses, the planet Earth. Each individual point of consciousness which awakens with Physical Creation are a part of the consciousness of Physical Creation. Similarly each consciousness which awakens within Earth is a part of the consciousness of Earth. In this regard, each independent point of consciousness is simultaneous a totally independent reality and part of other creation. It is similar a matter to what the individualized consciousness has awakened to experiencing by how it has focused its attention and awareness.
The creation body (Top) If we wish, look at the Physical Creation as a body much like the body we inhabit. There are cells, tissues, organs and an overall body within a environment. Each cell in turn has components and cellular functions that determine the state of the cell as health and growing, as stagnant, or dysfunctional and dying. Similarly, we can look at the earth as a body.
The family of earth is the solar system and its siblings the planets in this solar system. The Milky Way Galaxy is its society and all of physical creation its world. As a body, the earth has organs, tissues, and cells. Humanity is like one of the organs. Some would say it is the brain for it thinks. Some would say it is the heart for it feels. Others would describe it as an unmentionable organ in that it is reflective of only creating waste and toxic material that should be excreted.
In any case, the individual humans are like the individual cells of the organ. In the same way each cell performs a function for the organ and each is needed for the organ to operate successfully, individual humans have a role to play they need to play that role if the organ of humanity is going to properly serve the greater whole. However, the role and purpose of humanity is not really what is important. What is really happening doesnít matter. What matters is the role each of us were created to play and how we are, or are not, playing it for that is all any of us have any power to really control.
