LAW or Drugs, that is The Choice
Creativity, is, in many ways, a truly “chaotic” task.
The main essence of creationism (sorry atheists!), is the idea that order is required for something “new” to be created.
The main essence of “creativity” on the other hand, is the idea that “newness” is required for a new substance to be formed.
When the West (and the rest) decided to abandon Christianity, and its laws, it was bound to happen that men would start searching for ways to “get inspiration”.
Creativity, has always been a spiritual act. That being the case, as Apostle Paul said, “one cannot buy the Holy Ghost” (paraphrased!) with money (btw, hasn’t the “Holy Ghost” always been the ‘mediating’ means of the divine and the natural?; once one “removes” the divine, one always ends up with the chaotic darkness, selfishness, and addiction; and once one “removes” the natural, one always ends up with oppression, communism, and fascism). Therefore, there is no creativity WITHOUT both the natural order and spirituality!
Well, the entire world, has been offered a resolution to this “dialectic” by the incarnation of God, the death/resurrection of Christ, and the coming of the Holy Ghost upon the Church… but men, being pigs, have now returned to the filth!
It is a rather immutable fact that many of the things we “love” today were created by drug users. Steve Jobs (reportedly) said the following about Bill Gates:
“He’d be a broader guy if he had dropped acid once or gone off to an ashram when he was younger,…Bill is basically unimaginative and has never invented anything, which is why I think he’s more comfortable now in philanthropy than technology. He just shamelessly ripped off other people’s ideas.”
Well… I wonder if we could have had Jazz, Rock ‘n Roll, the Personal Computer, Blockchain, and most of the pristine art we have today, (even podcasts or standup comedy, think Joe Rogan et al) WITHOUT the psychedelic “world” (excuse the pun!).
