From my email message: “Curtis Gale Weeks also commented on H Lucien Gauthier III’s status.
Curtis wrote: “The error in the question is the assumption that Artist and Scientist are mutually exclusive.” ”
I think they are exclusive in the context of Lucien’s posting.
Both may use one or the other to display a reality, but each has their own reality, and only the artist makes a judgment of reality, while the scientist is judged by reality.
The reality of a scientist is as it is, as the scientist is judge. The reality of an artist is as it really is, as judged by the artist.
So, as a scientist, does god create a reality that is, because it exists as he is judged, or, as an artist, does god create a reality that is judged to exist, by the artist, as it really is?
My estimate is that God, exclusivity being who He is, sees things as they really are and creates an advantage from it, hence an artist, while man sees things as they are (scientist), and are judged by the environment (god) that holds an advantage.
Once that advantage (the ability to see things as they really are, thus change or conform—Observe or Act) is yours, you are no longer a scientist but an artist.
There is some advantage, given to man, in seeing things as they are (scientist), and that advantage is sanity.
Of course it should be noted that not all artists are gods or insane, it’s just that they may think they are the former.
It should be also noted that when the scientist sees things as they really are, they probably are god, or just insane.
