In the face of the limitless “horizontal” accumulation of privately owned debt-based currency, another more powerful force resounds through the cosmos to realign the minds, soul purposes and spiritual intents of all sentience.
Behind creativity, that universal force inspires poets, writers, artists, thinkers, makers of things, inventors and doers of extraordinary deeds. Known as the Muse, that power streams through the Universe and is, in many ways, the Universe.
As a Tangible Force
The great Serbian inventor Nikolai Tesla tapped into the same power to seemingly create the technology that shapes the contemporary world. To know more;

Tesla’s Tap Root
A gifted researcher and voracious reader, Tesla discovered forgotten volumes of natural science written by Goethe. In reading Goethe to the exclusion of other philosophies, sensations, consciousness and corresponding structures that emanated from the natural world would form the basis of his resulting technologies.
Knowing the Universal Power/The Muse
The Aeneid of the Latin poet Virgil [born 70 BCE] begins;
“Oh Muse, retell to me now the causes of what happened then.” (as translated by mythologist and metahistorian John Lamb Lash – see http://www.MetaHistory.org).
In Virgil’s inquiry, he asks for two revelations: for the Muse to retell what she knows about the founding of Rome, and for her to inform him of causes that came about in the past that explain the founding.
Virgil’s capacity to tell the story of Aeneas, the mythical founder of Rome, came not from his poetic talents or personal memory. Instead, the Muse to whom he appealed downloaded history, meaning and structure.
Characteristics of the Muse:
- A Primal Memory Source
- A Knower of Causality
- An Author of Moral Order
- A Source of Intent and Purposefulness
Antiquity and Contemporary Times
In the classical/pre-patriarchal art and myth of the West, the Muse is a version of a primal deity called “the goddess of memory.” By invoking her, Virgil acknowledged his reliance on a primal memory source for mythic recitation.
He did not author myth. He crafted the language but he did not create the mythos. He repeated what the Muse told him. He relied on her to fathom the causes of things past and the decisive events that led to Rome’s known historical founding.
Virgil did not invent mythical adventures. The Muse disclosed those events. Nikolai Tesla did not fathom the natural power of the universe. The Muse revealed her powers to him.
In acts of remembering and disclosure rests a superhuman power, conceived as feminine, capable of direct input into human psyches.
As a divine, supernatural entity in some way connected to the natural world, the Muse dictates to receptive human instruments. According to Virgil and in harmony with revelations of the indigenous world, we remember in special ways when the Muse remembers for us.
Virgil and Tesla remembered in special ways. Those ways oppose the limitless accumulation of privately owned debt-based currency.
