Energy can be measured according to wavelength, frequency, and level of consciousness. All energy is conscious. The level of consciousness depends on a particular flow of energy. The sound energy from a stone hitting the ground will have a low level of consciousness. The sound energy from a human voice will have a much higher level of consciousness. Everything in existence contains some form of energy. Anything which is living both receives energy and projects energy outwards.
Energy can be either dramatic or traumatic. This depends on its wavelength and frequency. Unlike dramatic energy, which creates order and structure and which can be detected by feelings of peace and harmony, traumatic energy can be detected by a feeling of tension and stress. Traumatic energy often doesn't increase consciousness, and has the effect of dividng, breaking down, creating conflict, decay, decline, traumatic energy creates disorder and chaos and gives one a sense of insecurity, fear, tension, and pressure. Fear energy is generally the most common form of traumatic energy.
Culture is dynamic, not static
What develops culture is individual human creativity. People generally have a poor understanding of what creativity actually is. Many confuse creativity with the ability to successfully express oneself through a form of creative self-expression. Any activity or interaction is creative. Breathing is creative. Menial work is creative, such as scrubbing a floor, because you are still interacting and doing something to bring about change. Creativity is synonymous with change. Life is constantly throwing up new challenges, new experiences, and new encounters with people, it's not possible to live without being creative. It is this constant creativity between individual people in a community or society which develops culture. It is a continuous process.
Creativity involves integrity and morality
The purpose of existence is to increase consciousness. Energy is both conscious and expansive. Beliefs and theories are also relative to both time and space and there is a need to 'live in the moment' and maintain a relationship with the present reality. This requires a commitment to both truth and morality. If one becomes too attached to beliefs they can easily lose contact with reality, lose awareness and misunderstand that what is going on around them.
But creativity also involves morality simply because it involves energy and that energy can be either dramatic or traumatic. Any action or interaction is influenced by motivation, desired outcome, opportunity and cultural awareness. This is true whether or not the creativity results in a crime or an act of charity.
Cultural awareness and identity
Cultural awareness is extremely important in our lives, because culture is the shared beliefs, understanding and awareness between any social group of people. Culture and cultural awareness is by far one of the strongest influences on our feelings, emotions and thinking. It influences the way we think, interact with others, the way we communicate, the way we express ourselves and the way we behave. Additionally it also influences how we dress and present ourselves to other people. It is our level of cultural awareness and understanding which tells us what is acceptable and what isn't in a given situation.
Cultural decline encourages moral decline and social decline
Cultural decline is any state where culture becomes dominated by fear energy. The general sense of well being and hope in a community or society is replaced by a sense of discord, tension, insecurity, and can further be felt by a sense of apathy, anger, or depression.
Culture also influences how individual people think, communicate and behave in a community or society. It is their cultural awareness which determines what they think is acceptable in terms of social interaction and behaviour and what isn't. Morality and personal integrity are both tied to individual human creativity so what happens in the event of cultural decline is a moral decline and social decline, simply because people are influenced more in their thinking by traumatic fear energy rather than dramatic energy, and this leads to people taking measures to become more defensive, to isolate themselves from others more, and to put themselves first more and consider other people less. From this we have increased social division, social stigma, which results in social exclusion and social fragmentation.
Cultural decline is a process
Cultural decline leads to social regression, which is the opposite of social progress. Cultural decline is a process which is also the opposite of what is commonly perceived as evolution.
It is the social division, social stigma and social fragmentation which creates social conditions which favour the development and spread of poverty, inequality, crime, authoritarianism, fascism and social disorder.
The only solution to any process of cultural decline is a complete reversal of the process. Cultural decline cannot be halted or stopped by a single event.
Furthermore fear energy, which is the dominant form of energy in any process of cultural decline is traumatic energy. Being traumatic energy it functions at much shorter wavelengths and higher frequencies than dramatic energy, which functions at lower frequencies and longer wavelengths. This means that the more advanced the process of cultural decline becomes, the greater the effort is needed to reverse the process.
The two outcomes of cultural decline
Cultural decline has two main outcomes. The first is social collapse and civil unrest, the second is authoritarianism and totalitarianism. Neither is an adequate solution to cultural decline.
