Welcome to the Museum of the Creative Process, a center of creative discovery, innovative research, and intellectual retreat. Located in historic Manchester Village on the estate of the Wilburton Inn. More than just an art center, the Museum is dedicated to understanding creativity as bridging art and science to gain insight into human relations.
Founded and directed by Albert Levis, M.D.
The creative process was conceived as a scientific conflict resolution phenomenon upon two observations: the first was of a pattern repeated five times in the Greek creation stories leading to the inception of the Olympian religion. The second observation was detecting the same pattern but with different resolutions in four major religions.
These observations led to identify science behind this periodic and directional phenomenon: its structure was that of a six-role process, these corresponded to three pendulum oscillations, implying an energetic transformation ending with the upgrading of order following the equilibrial operations of the trays of a scale. These scientific insights defined the creative process as an energetic transformation leading to four interrelated types of conflict resolution and transformed the unconscious from something vague to becoming both a scientific and a moral order or conflict resolution phenomenon.
This realization was of great significance. Now we can identify the unconscious as a simple and measurable universal harmonic, the atomistic unit of the social sciences integrating them into the Science of Conflict Resolution or the Moral Science. This science crosses the last frontier of knowledge. The process is the measurable psyche and the divine pursuing conflict resolution for wellness and peace.
Methodologically the process as the unit order is ‘the key that opens all doors, the master key of knowledge’. It is the common denominator of the social sciences. This concept has a dramatic role for education, psychology and politics. It integrates knowledge across all domains of education. It improves agnostic psychology offsetting the medicalization of the field, it introduces new diagnoses, unew methods of assessment and therapy, and it demystifies religions while clarifying moral values. The new science has a crucial role in our current times of an agnostic psychology unable to understand the divisive theistic moralities.
Emotional and moral literacy
The public needs mental health services and a new clear moral paradigm. Since the Moral Science unifies psychology and morality into scientific knowledge, this knowledge is imperative for the public to deal with emotional, interpersonal and cross-cultural conflicts. The public needs this knowledge as emotional and moral literacy. Like other literacies this knowledge and skills should be conveyed to the public. The process is the Promethean fire needed by the mortals. Educators should provide this science-based information in the classroom, in psychotherapy, in training and in preaching from the pulpit.
The museum’s mission is educational
The museum was conceived as the place to illustrate this scientific phenomenon with art exhibits to validate the theory, to pursue research and to deliver educational projects.
The Museum’s principal educational program is Creativity and Power Management, a concise program of emotional education based on the study of the creative process:
· Viewing the exhibits of the Museum of the Creative Process to learn about the Moral Science.
· Completing the Conflict Analysis Battery for self-discovery for healing the person.
· Playing Moral Monopoly, the game of cards of cultural stories integrating religions as a sequence of moral discoveries progressing towards the Moral Science, healing the world.
