This presentation is the start of WOW Bali’s research and development for a creative autonomous exchange that can be utilized to connect the understanding of love via creativity and visa versa. We hope to go beyond the lump sum and understanding of what “love and creativity” means from just the emotional context. Unless we can develop one of the greatest emotions of our lives so that it can be “energy for motion, it will creates blockage to sustain within.

Our goals are the define the alikeness and via its similarities and differences that connect us at the human level. This sustainable human development processes of “Love and Creativity” seemed to be the backbone of sustainable development for a more holistic participatory approach. Please help share and create new dialogs.

  • Love induces long term VS sex short term perspective; here and now. We engage at the highest of our persona, ethics and moral. Entail good wishes and intent for the person. Scientific American: According to construal level theory (CLT), thinking about events that are father into the future or past – or any kind psychological distancing (such as considering things or people that are physically farther away, or considering remote, unlikely alternatives to reality) triggers a more global processing style. See forest rather then just the single trees.
    Global Processing more diverse and original ideas

  • Love doesn’t just influence the way we think about people we love and desire. It influence the way we think about everything.

    Halo affect: We struggle to distinguish between the different qualities of the beloved person (if he is handsome he must be kind). This also does it for other objects! This is also part of global processing. Less GP when one think about sex.

    Take away lesson of love or anything that promotes a distal perspective or global processing, can make us more creative. Love is potent way to induce a sense of transcendence – being in the here and now yet also contemplating the distant future and maybe even eternity.
  • Love and creativity are intimately connected. Many lovers have expressed their love and talent through creative display, sometimes to embarrassing results. Does lust drive someone to the same heights of creativity? Love and sex are like kissing cousins; both are linked in people’s mind and brain but love and lust lead to two different ways of perceiving the world. Romantic love as having to do with dreamy wishes and long term goals of attachment. Lust having to do more with the here and now and the desire to engage in sexual activity. Love’s focus on the long-term would enhance holistic thinking and creative thought. Lust focus on the present would engage on analytical thought.

  • Study show:
  • Love is a powerful neurological condition like hunger or thirst, only more permanent.

    We talk about love being blind or unconditional, in a sense we have no control over it.

    Love is basic chemistry!

    Lust is a temporary passionate sexual desire; increased release of chemicals such as testosterone and oestrogen. Love, more attachment and bonding, the brain releases pheromone, dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin, oxytocin, and vasopressin.

    From evolutionary perspective, love can e viewed as a survival tool; mechanism to promote long term relationship, mutual defence and parental support of children and to promote feelings of safety and security. Based Jim Al-khalili is a thoretical physicist and science writer.
  • Love is not lump under “one word” Philia – Deep but non-sexual intimacy between close friends and family member. Deep bond forged by soldiers as they fought side by side. Ludus – More playful affection found in fooling around and flirting.

    Pragma – mature love that develops over a long period of time between long-term couples and involved practicing good will, commitment, compromise and understanding.

    Agape – more generalized love; not about exclusive but about love of all humanity. Philautia – is self love which isn’t as selfish as it sound. To care of others you must case of self!
    Eros – sexual passion and desire; causes most trouble unless it morphs into philia and/or pragma, eros will burn itself out.

    • 3. Preface This presentation is part of WOW Bali’s R&Dfor a creative autonomous exchange that can be utilized to connect the understanding of love via creativity and visa versa. We hope to go beyond the lump sum and understanding of what “love and creativity” means from just the emotional context; especially due today’s rapid deterrent disconnects of one’s emotional intelligence. Unless we can develop one of the greatest emotions of our lives so that it can be “energy for motion, it will only create emotional blockage within that may detour one’s wellbeing and health. Our goals are the define the alikeness and via its similarities and differences to connect us at the human level. Our sustainable human development processes via “Love and Creativity” defined these “twins” to be the backbone of sustainable development for a more holistic participatory approach; which is the KEY solution to today’s sustainability .

    • 18. Psychotherapist’s view • Love is not lump under “one word” but described as six types and possibly unrealistic to expect to experience with only one person. This is why family and community are important. Types Include: Philia , Ludus , Pragma , Agape, Philautia and Eros Based on Philippa Perry is a psychotherapist and author • of Couch Fiction. Love & Creativity Research of Sustainabiity and Wellness Initiatives 18 7/7/2014
    • 19. Psychotherapist’s… TYPES of love • Philia – Deep but non-sexual intimacy between close friends and family member. Deep bond forged by soldiers as they fought side by side. • Ludus – More playful affection found in fooling around and flirting. • Pragma – mature love that develops over a long period of time between long-term couples and involved practicing good will, commitment, compromise and understanding. • Agape – more generalized love; not about exclusive but about love of all humanity. • Philautia – is self love which isn’t as selfish as it sound.

    • 20. Philosopher’s View • Love is not one thing; love for parents, partners, children, country, neighbor, God and so on have different qualities. • Love qualities has its variants – blind, one-sided, tragic, steadfast, fickle, reciprocated, misguided, unconditional. • At its best, all love is a kind of passionate commitment that we nurture and develop; even though it usually arrives in our lives unbidden. That’s why it is more than just a powerful feeling. • Without the commitment, it is mere infatuation. Without passion, it is dedication. Without nurturing, even the best can wither and die. Julian Baggini is a philosopher and writer. Love & Creativity Research of Sustainabiity and Wellness Initiatives 20 7/7/2014
    • 21. Novelist’s view • Love is dependent on where you are in relationship to it. Secure - mundane and necessary as air; exist within it, almost unnoticing. Deprive – it can feel like an obsession; all consuming, a physical pain. • Love is a the drive for all great stories: not just romantic love, but love of parent, child, family and country. • It is the point before consummation of it that fascinates: what separates you from love, the obstacles that stand in its way. It is usually at those points that love is everything. Jojo Moyes is a two time winner of the Romantic Novel of the year award. Love & Creativity Research of Sustainabiity and Wellness Initiatives 21 7/7/2014
    • 22. A NUN’s view • Love is more easily experienced than defines. • As a theological virtue, where god is above all things and our neighbor as ourselves for his sake, it seems remote until we encounter it enfleshed, so to say, in the life of another – in acts of kindness, generosity and self sacrifice. • Love’s the one thing that can never hurt anyone, although it may cost dearly. • The paradox of love is that it is supremely free yet attaches us with bonds stronger than death. It cannot be bought or sold; there is nothing it cannot face, love is life’s greatest blessing.Love & Creativity Research of Sustainabiity and Wellness Initiatives 22 7/7/2014
    • 23. Osho’s view Love & Creativity Research of Sustainabiity and Wellness Initiatives 23 7/7/2014
    • 24. Bases of love: • Love as ideals: multiple dimensions, infinite connections, emotions and relatedness in meanings; probably why it is never complete • Love as active exchanges: conditional (sex and/or offering in exchanges) and unconditional (all giving and acceptances) Love & Creativity Research of Sustainabiity and Wellness Initiatives 24 7/7/2014
    • 25. Love & Creativity Research of Sustainabiity and Wellness Initiatives 25 7/7/2014
    • 26. Modern Love concepts • Socialist’s View – Love as Passion • Esoteric Spiritual’s View– Twin Soul/Flames Love & Creativity Research of Sustainabiity and Wellness Initiatives 26 7/7/2014
    • 27. Socialist’s View “Love as communication mediums to differentiate one from society.” Love & Creativity Research of Sustainabiity and Wellness Initiatives 27 7/7/2014
    • 28. Luhmann’s view • Love is not a feeling but a medium of communication; at least for the sociologists. • Love functions like many other media, stabilizing expectations and making selections possible in a context where misunderstanding is a given and breakdown always a possibility. Especially true for love, which carves out a world of proximate experience quite unlike any other social sphere. • Love is the more so in modern society, where the sphere of intimate life has become functionally differentiated from other spheres: politics, economy, law, art science, to name a few. Love, therefore, is different from other media. Love & Creativity Research of Sustainabiity and Wellness Initiatives 28 7/7/2014
    • 29. Luhmann’s continues… • What love has to do, therefore, is stabilize a world of expectations so that people can actually fall in love and then make it last, even though the odds of this occurring are stacked against it: a perfect example of what social systems do – make the implausible possible. • Society does this by privatizing love, shielding it from social control or steering. Legal restrictions on the conduct of intimate life progressively wane. People are now free to choose. Ironically, the idea of love as passion underlines the compulsive nature of this freedom. But it is not centrally directed. There is no panopticon, to cite Foucault, busy discipline amorous citizens. At the same time the organic basis of social life is drawn into play. Sex become allied to love in a way it never did before, helping to secure the medium. Sexuality individualizes love and make it exclusive. Love & Creativity Research of Sustainabiity and Wellness Initiatives 29 7/7/2014
    • 30. Luhmann’s continues… • Love, therefore, is not a constant, but changes over time as society itself changes. Luhmann studies the changes in love's semantics, in order to understand both how love works in modern society and how modern society works. • In pre-modern love was political or religious, coterminous with society, for which erotic love was seen as disruptive. Now love is defined as passion and differentiated from society, which means it can no longer operate as a steering mechanism for society as a whole. It is lucky if it can operate thus for intimate relationships. Love & Creativity Research of Sustainabiity and Wellness Initiatives 30 7/7/2014

    • 32. Twin soul/flames View New Age / Esoteric View Love & Creativity Research of Sustainabiity and Wellness Initiatives 32 7/7/2014
    • 33. Esoteric/new age • A Twin Flame is a spiritual concept describing a special soul connection between two souls. The Twin Flames are thought to be a template for an ancient/eternal type of relationship between lovers. The fundamental thought behind this concept is that the dawning new era in human spiritual evolution will be a time when relationships foster enhanced spiritual growth between lovers, whereas in previous times and still early in the 21st century couples stayed together for purposes of physical survival and economical safety more than anything else. According to the mythology of Twin Flames, in the beginning of time we were created from one source, that was split into smaller and smaller units down to two souls (and on rare occasions, halves of one soul) that would journey to Earth to learn an experience duality. They would reincarnate over lifetimes with this longing for each other, often meeting until, they would reunite and then leave this physical plane as one.

    • 34. TWIN FLAMES DYNAMICS • Twin Flame relationships come into your life to help mold you and to embody the vibrations of unconditional love. • … both twins integrate fully into the third energy of unconditional love in a way that influences others towards their own heart opening. • …. at this stage, the surrendered twin's emotional, mental and spiritual bodies arrive at full maturity. New creativity and healing abilities arise, which are put in service to assist others.

    • 35. Modern love wants us… • Break away from the traditional norm of societal love (pre-modern love). • Migrate LOVE towards an expressive medium/ communication. • Nurture LOVE from a knowing/connected space to benefit self and then others. • Express a higher self LOVE. • Creative imaginative connections to our highest divinity. Love & Creativity Research of Sustainabiity and Wellness Initiatives 35 7/7/2014
    • 36. Love & Creativity Research of Sustainabiity and Wellness Initiatives 36 7/7/2014
    • 37. Love & Creativity What do they have in common? Love & Creativity Research of Sustainabiity and Wellness Initiatives 37 7/7/2014
    • 38. • Both are beautiful perceptions in the infinite possibilities. • Both share the same processes of seeing, creating and nurturing beauty. • They both have an unique and array of solutions, processes and outcomes; yet the end goal of connections, relatedness and holistic endeavors with SELF and others are the same. • Both share the same active deliverables of offering and acceptance of self and others. • In the highest of its devotion is the ultimate freedom. • The processes of one can influence affectively of the other. Love & Creativity Love & Creativity Research of Sustainabiity and Wellness Initiatives 38 7/7/2014
    • 39. Love’s attachments • Love is direct to our emotional intelligences therefore has deeper attachment to ownership rather than deliverables of creativity. • Love is inclusive of all intelligences (inspiring) all modalities of our aesthetics and perceptual therefore requires high creative intelligences to find alternative and/or release; but possible with high creative processes. • If Love is creatively channeled can produced the most energetic exchange; possibly the greatest provocateur for actions. Love & Creativity Research of Sustainabiity and Wellness Initiatives 39 7/7/2014
    • 40. CREATIVITY DISCONNECTS • The wrong intent for creativity may disrupt our emotional intelligence and may create dissonant with our emotional well being. • The attachments to creative deliverables and/or rigid conditioning may limits our emotional intelligence and expansive creative curiosity which is the backbone of the interconnectedness of creativity and love. • Non collaborative affect and/or lack of inter-disciplinary processes of one’s medium can limits the creative potential and interconnectedness of emotional intelligence which may hinder real connections.
