This ten minute video provides an overview of consciousness, creativity and the latest scientific understanding of mind and matter from quantum physics. It introduces the concept that we live in a holographic universe where the entire whole is constituted within its parts, as in each one of us. Thanks to my friend Jay Kumar for sharing the video.
It seems that creativity is a common theme in both of the courses I am taking this semester.Both courses have a strong focus on understanding the theoretical physics that drive our universe.Yet, we are exploring how the creative forces of the universe apply our own creative evolutionary destiny.We are diving in deep to see how the creativity of our universe is enfolded within us.
Essentially, this video on creativity and spirituality is touching on the same idea of awakening to the creative principles that exist within ourselves.Andrew Cohen mentions how creativity can be a messy process.My classmates and I had a similar discussion last week about how this messiness will be apparent in some of the creative projects we are working on.I think one of the papers that I will write for one of my classes is going to be on exploring the creative process.It has been a fascinating journey for me over the past year to see how my own process of creativity has evolved. I look forward to sharing more on this topic.
After completing my masters degree in Environmental Peace and Security, it became clear that what was needed to address the environmental issues spanning the planet was a shift in human consciousness. Thus, last year I began working on a second masters in Philosophy, Cosmology and Consciousness with a focus on Integral Ecology to learn more about what exactly that meant. Thirteen year old Shannon Leonard is off to a strong start on that same mission. Watching Shannon and his friends speak about the need for a shift in consciousness to begin a life of sustainability is really encouraging. Shannon was awarded first place in the Institute of Noetic Sciences One Minute Shift YouTube video contest for the video below titled "We're Ready." Congratulations.
