  1. Revelation

    In religion and theology, revelation is the revealing or disclosing of some form of truth or knowledge through communication with a deity or other supernatural entity or entities. Some religions have religious texts which they view as divinely or supernaturally revealed or inspired. For instance, Orthodox Judaism holds that the Torah was received from God on biblical Mount Sinai, and Muslims consider the Qur'an to have been revealed word by word and letter by letter. In Hinduism some Vedas are considered apauruṣeya, i.e. "not human compositions", and are supposed to have been directly revealed, and thus are called śruti, i.e. "what is heard". Many Christians believe that the Old and New Testaments were inspired by God. The 15,000 handwritten pages produced by the mystic Maria Valtorta were represented as direct dictations from Jesus, while she attributed The Book of Azariah to her guardian angel. When a revelation is communicated by a supernatural entity that is reported as present during the communication, it is called a vision. Some revelations go further in that direct conversations between the recipient and the supernatural entity is reported. Some revelations are reported along with physical marks such as stigmata and in rare cases, such as that of Saint Juan Diego, physical artifacts accompany the revelation. The Roman Catholic concept of interior locution includes just an inner voice heard by the recipient.

    11. Inspiration - this is absolutely amazing and very beautiful madness. 12. Creativity is like a butterfly flying, light wings of inspiration will help fly away beyond the limits of human understanding. 13. Brilliant inspiration comes by itself, namely, a heart-revelation that gives people insight. This is a very special state of mind. The special state of the creative person. 14. A creative person should make discoveries, not mixes and remixes. 15. Do not imitate, do not admire, but simply excel. 16. Shake reality with your creativity. 17. With each century, the imagination of creative people is becoming uglier and uglier, dumber and dumber. 18. Do not imitate, just dominate. 19. How amusing is this evolution of plagiarism. 20. Creative people try for us, only at the beginning of their careers. In the 20th century, there was more theater in the art of cinema. In the 21st there is more advertising, in the same century, music becomes poorer, the richness of sounds gradually decreases, and the number of lazy patterns increases, and painting becomes meaningless and not aesthetic.

Even the most intellectually developed person does not see the whole truth, he only assumes that is (theories and hypotheses), assumption and endless variations of interpretation speak of ignorance. Many researchers have stopped discovering anything really important, they only rephrase the scientific work of each other. The thirst to see and know what really is, and not what you want to see, this is science. 2. What is a library is a collection of opinions, reading any book, throughout the book you are told about the same idea, consisting of only one sentence or phrase. No matter how much you read, it is important how much you understand. 25. 1. Psychology is hacking designed to learn how to manage people. 2. Psychology is a giant drill. 26. Never trust science.
