The Seven Laws of Creation

  1.     The law of origin
  2.     The law of nature
  3.     The law of characteristics
  4.     The law of purpose
  5.     The law of design
  6.     The law of process
  7.     The law of destruction

These laws find application in multiple spheres of human existence. From social organization to entrepreneurial activity and from education to personal development. The first four laws are of the type manufacturers of phones would call SIM LOCKED. In other words they are pre-conditional for any type of creation to proceed. While very few inventors may lay claim to having original thought in creating new paradigms of existence for the good of humanity, most inventors are innovators who make use of existing concepts. While the creators of handwriting, the wheel and the fundamental process of construction can be said to be true creators, the use of documentation, vehicles and types of housing are only innovations.  

The law of origin states that the origin of a thing is beyond the thing. In other words everything has a creator. It is the reason why we are more impressed with the creator than the thing. The maker has pre-eminence over the creature.

The second law states that every creation has a context in which it is dependent for existence, survival and success. The “set” of a play enables the “act” and therefore facilitates the actors to unfold the play. The context enables the recognition and placement of the creation.

The third law of creation states that the characteristics or the character of the item defines its function and operation. The character of the creation must be functional within the environment in which it exists for it to be of use.

The fourth law is the law of purpose. The creation must add value. The unique functionality enables it to be identified as such while its purpose justifies its creation. Without a specific and unique purpose, its placement, deployment and usefulness among other creations is of questionable value.

The fifth law of creation is design. This is where most creators classified as inventors or innovators start. This law states that a creation is captured and can be registered by its unique design. This design can be the process of manufacture or the unique nature and signature of the item. Creators therefore focus of creating something new or creating a new perspective of already existing creations. While the true patent is of the creator of origin (law 1), subsidiary patents can be quantified so long as all the primary laws (1-4) are not tampered with.

The sixth law is the law of consistency. This law states that the application of a creation must be consistent and yield consistent results – consistently. In other words a creation that functions once and does not generate the same results when repeated is not a creation. The creation must meet the scientific standard of repeat out comes to qualify as a creation. A pig gives birth to a pig. Nevertheless Edison’s lamp would not qualify as a creation if it only worked the first ten times.

The seventh law of creation states that what is created can be destroyed. What is created can become obsolete. This can also be interpreted as the law of updation. This law prevents inventors from becoming complacent and satisfied with their creation to the extent that it fails to accomplish the purpose for which it was created. In other words inventors can only claim their creation if they maintain it.
