A depiction of Baron Munchhausen pulling himself out of a bog by his hair[1], which Ludwig Buchner (1884) equates to the 19th century “creative force” premise; which is seen in the “creative energy” or "higher power" usages in recent decades.

In hmolscience, creative force, similar to creative energy, refers to the belief or view that behind, within, or part of a given "force", or ratio of the work done on a body and the distance through which it is moved, is a god, or that when any act of "creation" or "creativity" occurs, that it is the will, action, or work of a god.



In Egyptian mythology (2600BC), the “creative force” god was Ptah. Ptah was rescripted as Jiapheta in Hindu mythology (900BC), Hephaestus in Greek mythology (800BC), Vulcan, the “god of fire”, in Roman mythology (400BC), and the man Japheth in Hebrew mythology (c.300BC).[2]


In metaphysics, semi-modern "creative force" theorists include: Robert Grosseteste (c.1210), Henry Bergson (Creative Evolution, 1936), Louise Young (The Unfinished Universe, 1986), Migene Gonzalez-Wippler (What Happens After Death, 1997), and Harold Hamilton (Gravity in Relativistic Particle Theory, 2013).


The following are related quotes:

“It has been recognized in all ages that the most important of studies is the study of man. In him is the ‘active principle’, ‘creative force’, or ‘generating power’ in which all social phenomena have their origin. It is of primary importance then to comprehend the nature of that passional and intellectual motor in him, called the ‘soul’.”
Charles Fourier (1808), Theory of the Four Movements: and of Destinies in General (pg. 2) [3]
“I am agnostic as to the question of god. Since man ceased to worship openly an anthropomorphic god and talked vaguely and not intelligently about ‘some force’ in the universe, higher than man, that is responsible for the existence of man and the universe, he cannot be said to believe in god. One cannot believe in a force excepting as a force that pervades matter and is not an individual entity.”
— Clarence Darrow (1929), “Why I Am Agnostic” [4]
