Imaginative Creativity

The human capability of inventing and creating novel scenes without any immediate input provided by Sensory Organs can be termed as Imaginative Creativity and is depicted as Chitrangada in the epic of Mahabharata.

In the epic of Mahabharata, Chitrangada was elder son of Shantanu and Satyawati. After death of his father Shantanu, Chitrangada was placed on the throne of Hastinapur. He was a great warrior and defeated may demons and Asuras. However Chitrangada wrestled with a demon having the same name “Chitrangada” on the bank of river “Hiranyavati”.

In the book during the decoding of the demon Hirankashyap, we shall study that Hiranyavati means “Varied Possibilities”. In this sense, Chitrangada means “Imgainary Creativity about Varied Possibilities”. Epic of Mahabharata suggests that in spite being brave and strong, Chitrangada was not an important character. He died an early age and could not produce any offspring.

This necessarily means that “Imaginative Creativity” has no role in the pursuit of Truth. Imaginative Creativity will be killed eventually by Imaginative Creativity itself. Spiritualism is a scientific process with no scope of Imaginative Creativity.

In our book, we shall deal with the subject of Imaginative Creativity in detail and understand that such psyche is not complete remedy for spiritualism.
