Life had been slowly evolving since the beginning of the Cambrian Period 400 million years ago but it is only about 40 to 100 thousand years ago that the Homo Sapiens finally evolved a brain capable of having a creative imagination. Some evidence of Mankind's new imaginative power is painted on the walls of caves in France and beautiful tools and artifacts that can be dated to around this time. Human Imagination is God’s way of revealing some of his creations, to an imaginative being on this tiny planet in the vast cosmos. Human imagination has created the "MIND" of mankind.
This is such a tremendous gift God has chosen to bestow on mankind that it is hard to fathom why he did it. Just think of it - through human imagination coupled with an insatiable curiosity people now have the mental capacity to discover the secret worlds of nature and understand the true realities of the Universe. Human Imagination has given mankind the power to have greater control over its own destiny. Who knows how far this control can go in the future.
It is only in the past few centuries that the imaginative superminds have begun basing their stories (theories) on physical evidence (the scientific method) that they have gathered. This has given humans the insight to began to understand the true nature of the mysterious phenomena that governs the universe. Mankind has began to come up with better explanations for the mysterious phenomena that they continually encounter in their lives.
They no longer depend on gods and myths to explain this phenomena. The new stories (theories) have enabled humans to begin to understand the phenomena and create mathematical relationships that guides matter, energy and life within the universe. They now have many theories to guide them in their quest for the truth. They are slowly discovering the "true" physical laws of nature (gravity, inertia, chemistry, biology, etc.).
By creating the physical laws of nature - gravity, inertia, electromagnetic emission, chemistry, biology, etc. - God brought the universe into existence. This beautiful complex phenomena which we describe as the physical laws of nature, work in total synchronized harmony giving the universe its familiar characteristics. They are totally invariant, there is no possible way to break any law of nature, we can manipulate and use them but we cannot break them. Mankind is now beginning to discover and understand some of this complex phenomena.
Some of the “laws” are pretty well understood, some are yet to be discovered, and some are still mistakenly described. By utilizing the laws of optics, electromagnetism, chemistry, etc. the superminds (people with superior creative imaginations) have invented thousands of wonderful machines, devices and processes that has enabled Mankind to continuously progress to ever higher levels of control.
We know God loves beautiful things because everything he creates is beautiful. It is through Nature that God creates his beauty. Everywhere we look there are beautiful creations of nature. Mankind is an extension of Nature’s creativity - it creates things that Nature cannot. From the primitive tools and beautiful paintings at the beginning of its existence to the complex intricate technology of the present - Mankind has continually created things that Nature by itself - could not.
Civilization itself - with all its laws and moral codes is a creation of mankind - not of nature. Many of the laws and moral codes of civilizations do not follow the laws of nature at all but are necessary deviations for the good of mankind - although some are not. Moses’s commandments are the laws of man - not God’s - they are there to help guide Mankind in a civilized manner. Although Mankind holds a special place God’s creativity, since he has chosen to give this us this tremendous power. There are probably billions of other planets in the universe with “imaginative minds” to whom he has also revealed his existence.
Although God has chosen to reveal some of his wonders nature to Mankind through "human imagination", much of his infinitely vast nature may forever remain mysterious. We should consider ourselves fortunate to have the cognitive power to comprehend the wonders he has chosen to reveal.
Donald Hamilton, author of: "The MIND of Mankind - Human Imagination, the source of Mankind's Tremendous Power!"
Only Mankind, here on Earth, has this unique power.

I'm surprised by your knowledge. The ideas concerning the story tellers are also good,
it is not necessary to complicate the things, and the
clues are there. The power of America the same.
*** From a satisfied reader -" Hello Mr Hamilton,
Just finished your book ... great job! Do you have any other similar books
I was looking for information on creation/evolution
when I came across your book.
This book should be included in the educational systems
of the world ... all ethnic groups could benefit greatly from this writing." - Matt
