Implications for Global Actions

Creativity: Revealing the Truth about Human Nature is, essentially, a call to action to: 



The authentic sense of who we really are and why we live implies several planetary recovery and regeneration efforts. 


Here are five critical efforts and, obviously, the logical and necessary starting point:

 

One:

  • Recognize our inherently creative nature as humans (Homo Ceativus) — naturally and primarily driven to develop and to engage one's natural abilities in meaningful, significant, and beneficial functions.   

  • Correspondingly, make inner development of people the goal and the basis of every social, economic, and political action — the mindset behind every policy, every decision. Create, provide, and maintain opportunity for everyone to reach and to contribute his or her potential. 


Two:

  • Rethink the long-held belief that economic factors — wealth, consumption, and material well-being — define and shape human life.

  • Correspondingly, recognize human fulfillment and actualization of one's innate potentialities as the the goal, the natural purpose, of human life — with economic consumption and material well-being as the means to that end.  


Three:

  • Research, develop, teach, promote, support, and/or reward methods of work, systems of values, patterns and operational relationships that enhance and beneficially engage everyone's finest and most important attribute — their creativeness.  


Four: 

  • Join and take active part in the comprehensive, universally accessible, and easy-to-implement campaign to: a) return humanity to our authentic, inherently creative nature — Homo Creativus; and b) implement Homo Creativus in every facet of human life and society: Parenting. Education. Leadership. Management. Business. Governance. Care Giving. And more.
