True Creation

So with the theological meaning of the word "to create", that is, to bring into existence, or to make something from nothing, it appears that nothing is ever "created" in this world. And the claims of such creation are unverified, and impossible to verify.
But creation does exist. It exits in the mind. Everybody is a god in their own mind.
Ideas, concepts, dreams, they are all creations, they are made out of nothing. Now, you may say that they aren't made out of nothing, because you had sources of inspiration. Well yes, but those sources of inspiration, those resources aren't consumed, in a narrow sense, kind of like a catalyst.
In your mind you can create anything and everything. Your only limitations are your imagination and your perceptions. This is why writers are so fascinated by them. To be able to put your own ideas, your own dreams and worlds on papers, and share them with other people, is the closest you can get to your creations being "real".

So far, I've "created" several worlds with full mythologies and hundreds of scenarios, with lifelike characters and back stories that drive them to extreme lengths, with magic and gods, demons and angels, all of the impossibilities of real life, but I have yet to put them on paper. They reside still in my mind.

So my question is, what are your biggest creations?

Hehe, one of my worlds also contains a "multiverse". It contains multiple worlds, in a system with the non creative name of "the gate" :D

You assume and assume and assume OP.

What gives you the right to claim... ideas how ever arty and amazing they are... are sparkled into existance from nothingness?

You have evidence for this? Because THAT is how science works.
Proof the claim you just made. Have it verified... by several others....

'Creation does exist'...uh what?

Creation? Explain this.
What does creation mean to you? What is this creation, you mention? How does it function?

You are entirely the last person who can accuse others of assuming things.

The counter argument to that would be, I suppose, that all activity in your brain is an emergent result of ultimately deterministic processes and is therefore both inevitable and pre-existing in hyperdimensional possibility space, along with all other potential configurations of matter and energy.

However, that's not a terribly useful way of thinking about things, even if it's probably true.

Well, it looks like you ressed a reaaaaally old thread. But seeing your post seems to make sense, I'll assume you're not a bot, and let this through.
