Question: There was a time when Russia contributed a lot in the sciences and creative arts. Did the state control of her citizens numb this creativity? And as a result of this psychic pain, Russians just have a filter of specialness and superiority that they hide behind.
Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.
You will see in many different societies that control and creativity cannot coexist. It is inevitable that the more you increase control, the more you diminish creativity. Creativity requires freedom. It requires an openness to experiment. And when there is enforced a control that limits experimentation, well, there is a limit to what creativity can bring forth.
In Soviet times, you did see that there was a lot of research. And that there was some creativity, some new things that were brought forth by Russians or Soviet scientists. But this very much happened within the limitations, the borders defined by the state and the Communist Party. It was an entirely materialistic approach that was focused on increasing the power of the Soviet Union, both militarily and in other ways.
But this is not a phenomenon limited to Russia, of course, you can see it and other nations as well. And you can see it in the West right now, where the materialistic mindset is limiting scientific research and general creativity. You saw in the Middle Ages, how the Catholic Church limited scientific research and experimentation.
So in general, it is clear that when a culture, a society, a religion or a political party sets boundaries for what can be experimented with, what can be theorized about, what new theories can be cast out and investigated, then they will limit not only scientific creativity, but all other forms of creativity as well.
