Introduction to the Exhibits

The exhibits of the Museum of the Creative Process illustrate the scientific study of the unconscious observing the creative process as a conflict resolution mechanism. The mechanism is a six-emotions roller-coaster that begins with a normative deviation and predictably seeks conflict resolution as normative conciliation. The exhibits are reproduced in the volume Science Stealing the Fire of the Gods and Healing the World. The myth of Prometheus, his name meaning ‘foretelling’, illustrates the notion of science upstaging religion and benefiting the public. The evolution from faith to moral reason is presented in three sets of art exhibits. The first set of exhibits, The Fire, introduces the science of the creative process. The second exhibit, Stealing the Fire, is 'The Sculptural Trail in the History of Love'. It retraces the history of religions as partial and complementary discoveries of science. Science completes the mission of religions by introducing structure and function to creative process. The final exhibit, 'The Murals of Seven Case Studies', illustrates the concept of Giving the Fire to the Mortals by delivering a concise program of emotional education based on utilizing creativity for self-discovery.

The Fire: introducing the concept of the conflict resolution unconscious as a scientific phenomenon 

What is Prometheus’ fire? 
It is The Creative Process as the scientific moral paradigm. This concept is illustrated and validated by using three exhibits:
1. The Metaphoria Murals
2. The Gorski Retrospective
3. The Wizard of Oz panels.

Stealing the Fire: presenting religions as partial and complementary discoveries of science

How does science steal the fire of the gods? 
‘The Sculptural Trail in the History of Love’ has three segments linked together. 
1. Paradigm Shift from believing in the political and religious stories that divide us to understanding the universal plot of stories, the creative process as a scientific phenomenon that unites us.
2. The Epics of the Goddess and Scriptures of One God trace the evolution of religions as a continuum of discoveries of the innate moral process. Religions are respected as advancing alternative ways of resolving conflicts, hence as partial and complementary discoveries of the scientific process. Science steals the moral authority of religions by attributing it to the innate psychological  conflict resolution process, thus completing religion's quest for meaning. Religions deified the respective conflict resolution alternatives; in contrast science demystifies the One God and rediscovers its abstract characteristics attributing them to the human unconscious. 
3. Memorial to the 20th Century, showing how stories inspired, but misled the 20th century. The exhibit showcases what is universal in all stories as a scientific mechanism.

Giving the Fire: delivering a program of emotional education

How do we give the fire to the mortals? Using education to heal the divided believers. We can do so by delivering an emotional education program clarifying the creative process as the integrative paradigm leading to meaningfulness, self-knowledge and clarity of values. The program uses creativity for self-discovery, relying on the Conflict Analysis Battery as a concise program of emotional education. Seven Metaphoria Murals, each pertaining to a case study, illustrates the effectiveness of  the program thus validating the formal theoretical assumption.
