Qultura's work is based on Stella Baker's Theory of
Creativity which gives an interpretation of universal law.
This theory also led to the development of the Energy
Spectrum and a Social Theory. Everything is based on the
following fundamental principle:
Individual human creativity and social interaction is what develops culture. Cultural development is what promotes social progress and motivates human evolution. Where it is grounded in truth and morality it also creates economic prosperity. The purpose of existence and evolution is development of consciousness.

Social exclusion is an increasingly common social issue, one of the most serious given the fact that it affects people in a vast myriad of different ways and has profound and devastating effects on both the lives and the health of the people it affects.
It's important to remember that when Stella Baker first created Qultura back at the end of 2009 she did so as a vehicle for her newly developed Theory of Creativity and Energy Spectrum which even today remains at the cutting edge of social science because it redefines the relationship between consciousness and energy and provides an answer to the hard scientific problem (and question) of what motivates human evolution. Inevitably this yielded a new social theory and provided a new definition of social stigma. It also provided a completely new theory on social exclusion, beyond the paradigm of what social exclusion is believed to be, and this forms the basis for our innovative and so far highly effective approach to supporting people who are affected by social exclusion and social stigma.
This explains our lengthy period of research and development as a charitable organization. Both social exclusion and social stigma are among the most common factors in suicides and unnecessary deaths and it was imperative to get the approach right before we started properly functioning as a charity.
The Theory and its impact.
Stella Baker's Theory of Creativity is the result of more than 20 years of research and development and has four parts - the Theory itself, the Energy Spectrum, Mirroring and Individuality, which is based on human individuality. It was originally developed as a theory of modern drama but it was discovered that drama is very closely related to consciousness and the formation of energy. In the webpage on consciousness Stella Baker offers her definition of consciousness as it relates to her theory but provides supporting evidence from leading consciousness researcher Anthony Peake so much of what is written is not part of the theory but supporting evidence. The section on energy and its relationship to the brain does not give anywhere close to an anatomical description of the brain, which is an incredibly complex quantum electromagnetic organ, but describes how energy and consciousness is processed by the brain.
The Social Theory is considered separate but is based on the Theory and explains the importance of effective and sustained cultural development to a community and society. Together this gives a comprehensive interpretation of universal law and opportunity for further study and research.
All the above impacts on social stigma and social exclusion. Stella Baker offers a model for social stigma which is different to both the theory advanced by Erving Goffman and the definition of social stigma advanced by Bruce Link and Jo Phelan. Unlike both these models and explanations, Stella Baker defines social stigma as a belief attachment closely related to addiction and defines it as a social dysfunction which can be caused by social conditioning and social engineering. This redefines such issues as racism and sexism not as inevitable social beliefs but rather more clearly as dysfunctional social atttitudes. Social exclusion is therefore redefined as a social issue which comes out of social stigma and a unique and highly individual personal experience which disables emotional and cognitive development and functioning. Contrary to what is commonly believed social exclusion is not a matter of social position and status but a direct emotional and psychological experience resulting from social stigma.
This theory is a 'living' theory, which is updated annually by Stella Baker and forms her legacy. This website is the only credible source of this theory and considered source. Stella Baker has never published this theory nor has it yielded any income but is shared freely for the benefit of those who are the most marginalized, excluded, stigmatized, poorest, sickest, and deprived in society.
Our role as a charitable organization
The above impact arising from the development of Stella Baker's Theory of Creativity has presented us with a very real and persistent challenge as to how to structure ourselves and operate as a charitable organization. It is not possible to function according to any widely accepted business model for a charity because we cannot provide effective support to be able to achieve our mission and objectives through a traditional service user and service provider relationship. Effective support for people affected by social exclusion and social stigma requires primary social interaction and sustained environmental change to provide the people we support with a social context and setting to be able to overcome the effects of social exclusion.
This can only be achieved through cultural development and
the development of effective community support networks at a
local community level. Throughout our development this has
shown to be by far the most consistent approach offering the
most effective and efficient level of support.
