THE MUSEUM of the Creative Process
The museum ushers in a revolution bringing understanding to the person and the world. We have discovered the software of the mind. More than just an art center, the Museum uses art to bridge psychology and science. We examine the creative process to gain insight into the human unconscious. The museum is dedicated to presenting a conceptual breakthrough, making behavior into an exact science and bringing creativity's relevance for the education of the public.
The Museum recognizes that the creative process is a scientific phenomenon reflecting the unconscious resolving conflicts. Through examining the creative process, stories, then we can understand ourselves and cultures. This Museum explores the scientific interpretation of metaphors as the new way of looking at personal and at cultural art that is at religions. We examine personal art to learn about ourselves. We examine cultural art to learn about morality as a science. We discover that religions are forerunners of science grasping it with metaphors. But we wish to raise awareness that metaphors are limited in their understanding the underlying moral order. Religions grasp concrete images of the divine, worshiping metaphors, the alternative types of conflict resolution, which mislead the public presenting partial truths as the total truth. The metaphors are now interpreted with the formulas of equilibrial systems. The formulas are the foundation of psychology as the Science of Conflict Resolution, the Moral Science. This science is very different of the currently prevailing agnostic psychology and of theistic moralities.

The Museum is housed on two campuses.
1. The Wilburton Campus hosts the majority of the collection, including the Metaphoria Murals, the Sanctuary of the Unit, the Wizard and Wisdom Collection, and the sculptural trail in the history of love. It has a number of segments: The Epics of the Goddess and the Scriptures of the One God, and the Abstractions Gallery.

257 Wilburton Drive, Manchester Village, Vermont
2. The Moral Science Project Campus includes The Institute of Conflict Analysis, our Training Center, as well the The Henry Gorski Retrospective and the Sculpture Park. An overview of the collection, is available here. An audio guide for the exhibits is available here.
The Moral Science Project Gallery and Sculpture Park
3814 Main Street, Manchester Village, Vermont
The Museum's Wilburton Inn art exhibits and the Moral Science Project Campus are open to the public from 10AM to 3PM daily for self-guided tours. We recommend our training program presented weekly as a weekend and a mid-week workshops. To find out more, click here. Admission is free.
The museum’s educational programs
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 programs. 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.
Creativity and Power Management is delivered online and in-person workshops at our campus in Manchester Vermont. We offer a brief and a full version of the self-assessment, available here.
Two workshops, one delivered on weekends and one mid week deliver the science and its personal relevance.The weekend workshop has a three segment curriculum:
· Viewing the exhibits of the Museum of the Creative Process to learn about the Moral Science.
· Completing a sample part of the Conflict Analysis Battery.
· Playing Moral Monopoly, the game of cards of cultural stories to learn about integrating religions as a sequence of moral discoveries progressing towards understanding the Moral Science, healing the world. The mid week workshop combines completing the self-assessment battery and enjoying a wellness program of activities.
About the Creative Process as a scientific phenomenon
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. Resolutions varied. They followed the three equilibrial operations of the trays of a scale.
The two scientific phenomena 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 has been of great significance. It introduced the unconscious as a simple and measurable natural science phenomenon, 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 pursuing meaning, identifying the divine as the pursuit of conflict resolution for wellness and for 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, religions and politics. It integrates knowledge across all domains of education. It improves agnostic psychology offsetting the medicalization of the field; it introduces new diagnostic categories, a new diagnostic and therapeutic assessment, the Conflict Analysis Battery, 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 represents the needed scientific moral paradigm. It is useful 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. Professionals should provide this science-based education in the classroom, in psychotherapy, in training and in preaching.
THIS IMAGE PRESENTS THE SCULPTURE OF THE ABRAHAMIC FAMILY, A STATION IN THE SCULPTURAL TRAIL IN THE HISTORY OF LOVE.
This sculpture highlights a new way of looking at art as stories with measurable scientific dimensions. The Abrahamic family story has inspired the three religions. Beware of it. It was a lighthouse. Now it is the sirens that magnetize sailors to the rocks. Stories have defined the divine. They have given it the power of the role models of happiness. Stories are only particular and alternative ways of resolving conflict. They have evolved as paradigms of happiness. Now we must recognize that stories have dimensions and that happiness is not in any one role model advanced by a best seller. The secrets to happiness are in the science of conflict resolution, the Moral Science, in the scientific interpretation of metaphors.
THE FORMAL THEORY ADVANCED THE CREATIVE PROCESS AS A SCIENTIFIC CONFLICT RESOLUTION PROCESS REFLECTING THE UNCONSCIOUS.
The art exhibits of the museum illustrate and validate THE FORMAL THEORY, confirming the unconscious as PSYCHOLOGY's unit order, allowing psychology to become THE SCIENCE OF CONFLICT RESOLUTION,THE MORAL SCIENCE. THE ADVANTAGES: BECOMING READILY CONSCIOUS OF THE UNCONSCIOUS FOR TWO OBJECTIVES: SELF-DISCOVERY AND CLARITY ON MORAL ORDER, HEALING THE PERSON AND HEALING THE WORLD
The concept integrates the social science disciplines revamping psychology and our concepts about religions
The unconscious is the Moral Science's unit order integrating knowledge. It advances the comprehensive rethinking of psychology's concepts: Four images on the right illustrate psychology's social science disciplines utilizing the graphic simplicity of portraying the unconscious as a sine curve with a moral directional conclusion: The display begins presenting it as the universal harmonic: a purely abstract graphic representation of a sine curve of six role-states and a set of concentric circles, the normative field with directional vectors. This is the atomistic unit of behavior.
The image on the right presents psychology's new diagnostic categories, the four relational modalities portrayed with the figures of the Wizard of Oz companions and a particular vector in the concentric circle system.
The next figure presents the art work generated by the Conflict Analysis Battery's self-assessment tasks reconstructing the personal conflict resolution process, an assessment that delivers insights and therapeutic benefits.
The final image is that of the Moral Monopoly game of cultural story cards integrating the religions of the world as a set of sine curves around the concentric circle identifying them as complementary discoveries of the alternative ways of resolving conflict. The four disciplines are integrated into the Moral Science.
