CONTENT
About: Divine creation moves from implicit and transcendent oneness to explicit and manifest multiplicity. To contribute to the creation of a new civilization as a researcher or as an artist means to make oneself available for participation in this process of neverending unfolding. The divine Names are the eternal archetypes organizing the material world. Divine Names are not concepts; they are tools for invoking the animated presence of a particular aspect of the creative force, thus enabling dialogue between thinking processes and reality. Such a dialogue favors a presuppositionless, susceptive attitude to reality as more adequate than the imposition of preconceived methodological assumptions.
