Welcome to the Museum of the Creative Process, a center of creative discovery, innovative research, and intellectual retreat. More than just an art center, the Museum bridges art and science to gain insight into human relations. Dedicated to bringing emotional education to the public, the Museum provides online learning programs and in-person workshops at our campus in Manchester Vermont.
The Museum of the Creative Process presents art exhibits introducing the creative process as a scientific conflict resolution mechanism reflecting the unconscious. The significance of identifying the unconscious as a measurable scientific and moral order phenomenon is in science integrating psychology, and religions into the Moral Science revamping our way of understanding behavior, religion, education by looking at art and finding science.
Unlike other museums, The Museum of the Creative Process shifts focus from content to process. Rather than evaluating art aesthetically, the Museum explores the experience of being creative, how creativity impacts us, and how our stories define our cultures and civilizations. Rather than promoting one story above another, the Museum teaches us how to interpret stories and thus to liberate ourselves from oppressive ideologies.
In art, we find science. in science, we find morality. In our stories, we find a path towards insight and enlightenment. Join us to transform your story.
The Museum conceptualizes the creative process as being a scientific phenomenon, a dynamic unit that transforms emotional energy from conflict to resolution. It recognizes that the creative process corresponds to the innate human need to resolve conflict. Through examining our creativity, we can appreciate the inner working of the human mind, allowing us a new ability to understand ourselves and society, to appreciate our strengths, and overcome our limitations.
WEEKEND WORKSHOPS ON HEALING THE PERSON AND HEALING THE WORLD BEGIN IN JUNE:
Beginning June first and second the museum offers workshops on this ground-breaking integration of art and science through a concise program of emotional education presented over the course of a weekend. On Saturdays at the Moral Science Project (3814 Main Street) we focus on ‘Healing the Person’ using creativity for self-discovery. On Sundays at the Wilburton Inn (257 Wilburton Drive) the focus is on ‘Healing the World’ by viewing the Sculptural Trail in the History of Love and playing Moral Monopoly, a game of cultural stories, to observe the evolution of religions as a progression of identifying the alternative ways of resolving conflict, integrated into the Moral Science.
To attend a weekend workshop: call 802.379.6350, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org, cost $100 per day
QUESTIONS TO GUIDE YOU THROUGH THE MUSEUM’S GORSKI RETROSPECTIVE
All stories, as in drama, movies and novels, begin with a conflict and end with a resolution. We know the plot of stories leading to a moral discovery. Can we look at art and see morality in terms of underlying science ?
Since the unconscious composes stories, does art reflect the unconscious? Does it reflect the unconscious as both a scientific and a moral order phenomenon?
Freud described the unconscious as generating conflicts. We describe it as resolving conflicts. Who do you think is right, Levis or Freud?
Since creativity reflects the unconscious, can we study the creative process as the object for the scientific and moral study of the unconscious?
Can we examine the Gorski Retrospective and identify how the artist resolves moral dilemmas? Can we detect in the canvases of Gorski alternative conflict resolution patterns?
Psychology has become a medical specialty diagnosing illnesses as clusters of symptoms. The Formal Theory examines how the mind resolves conflicts as syndromes of six emotions and as relational alternatives. What is personality and how can it be diagnosed?
The unconscious emotional process resolves conflict in six-role states of one action. The canvases are connected like a pendulum oscillating in the magnetic field or gravity field of moral alternatives: passive active, cooperation antagonism, and alienation to mutual respect. Gorski’s retrospective features two sequences of conflict resolution. The action in one is the mouth kissing, the action in the second is sports competition canvases. The two sequences of six canvases illustrate how the mind proceeds like a pendulum oscillating three times to reach resolutions as moral discoveries.
Do Gorski’s canvases evolve resolving personal conflicts and do the two sequences improve his emotional adjustment?
Learn how to identify the images of the six role process. Which canvases represent each one of the six role process: stress, response, anxiety, defense, reversal and compromise?
In Gorski’s canvases we can see the alternative ways of resolving conflict. We recognize four types of resolving according to power as dominant and submissive, and according to attitude as cooperative and antagonistic. These alternatives combined lead to four relational modalities. What are the relational distinctions between his four mouth canvases? Which mouths are dominant and which are submissive? Which are cooperative and which are antagonistic?
The unconscious being a natural science moral order phenomenon may be portrayed graphically. Think of the configuration of the sperm and you got the unconscious on the search for moral order. It has a process like a tail propelling it forward, the sine role process. It has a moral compass consisting of directional vectors within a set of circles pointing to the four ways of resolving. Can you portray the canvases of a sequence graphically and their way of resolving by using this type of graphic representation?
QUESTIONS TO GUIDE YOU THROUGH THE MUSEUM’S SCULPTURAL TRAIL:
Can we study our personal creativity for self-discovery and cultural creativity for clarity of religions as alternative ways of resolving conflicts?
Can we apply these distinctions in diagnosing the relational modalities to the four characters of the Wizard of Oz story? Which are the relational diagnoses of the Scarecrow and for the Cowardly Lion?
Are religious stories, creativity in general, natural science measurable phenomena?
Religions are founded on dogma. The Formal Theory suggests that they are psychological natural science conflict resolving phenomena rather than metaphysical revelations.
Can we measure our religions by examining how their stories resolve conflicts?
Can we examine stories of religions and measure their ways of resolving conflicts?
Have religions evolved resolving conflicts and improving the family institution?
At the Museum of the Creative Process at the Wilburton Inn we have a ‘Sculptural Trail in the History of Love’, presenting how religions evolved resolving the conflicts of the family institution as discoveries of the scientific principles of conflict resolution.
Matriarchy began the family institution with women in charge but with mothers in conflict with their daughters. Matriarchy evolved to Patriarchy with men identifying power, mastery, over women. Here fathers were in conflict with their sons. Patriarchy evolved to Asceticism with the discovery of cooperation and powerlessness by being willing to submit. Monotheism evolved with the discovery of mutual respect between father and son. Moral Monopoly is a game that integrates stories of religions as complimentary discoveries of the conflict resolution process improving the family and coming close to the abstractions of a science?
Can the Moral Science complete the quest of religions for peace in the world by evolving consensus, through furthering abstraction in the nature of the scientific process underlying all creativity? The Conflict Analysis Battery identified creativity stories reflecting each of the emotions. Completing the tasks about ourselves, we discover how we resolve conflicts.
Online Power Management Training
The Conflict Analysis Battery is an interactive learning program unlike any other psychological test or intervention. It is based on the scientific evaluation of the unconscious as a measurable mechanism, connecting emotions and behaviors into a conflict resolution pattern. It is didactic, diagnostic and therapeutic, valid and reliable, yet responsive, humanistic, and meaningful. Completing the program is both an intellectual and an emotional experience. It is a concise, personalized program of emotional education that may be used both as a routine self-evaluation and in the context of training or therapy. Our vision is that it become the standard psychological evaluation, but also that it be used within the classroom, the boardroom, and the prison, allowing personal growth with minimal need for professional services.

CREATIVITY AND POWER MANAGEMENT WORKSHOPS
The Museum of the Creative Process, offers a selection of three workshops and training opportunities: Insight in one hour, enlightenment in one day, and wisdom in one week. The Enlightenment Program is a compliment to the experiential programs. It consists of the guided tour of the five art exhibits of the Museum of the Creative Process delivering information on the concepts of the Moral Science in a systematic fashion. The Insight program centers on self-discovery utilizing the Relational Modality Evaluation Scale and the Animal Metaphor Test. The Wisdom program includes all parts of the battery, focusing on their integration and personal relevance. The workshops are recommended for a general audience interested in furthering self-knowledge and for professionals interested in strengthening their skills of understanding behavior and morality.

Moral Monopoly is an educational card-game introducing the formal analysis of cultural stories as a progression of scientific discoveries improving family relations and the definition of the divine. The game respects the religion as moral monopolies but integrates them as complementary discoveries of the Moral Science. The game utilizes the structure of the deck of cards as a metaphor illustrating the three components of the unconscious: the four suits corresponding to four relational modalities, the cards of each suit reflecting the syndromal six-role process structure of stories, and the signage of the suits, spade to heart, reflecting symbolically incremental effectiveness.
