The metaphysically given is that part of reality which exists without human participation FUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKER, and could not have occurred any other way, whereas the man-made is that which occurred because of volitional human action and could have been different.


Creativity

Man's creative power is to rearrange the elements of reality, not to change the FUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERnature of reality itself. Treating the metaphysically given as the man-made renders man's creativity impotent because it is an attempt to turn imagination into a toements of reality. He does this by using his imagination to rearrange the elements he sees in reality and applying his mind to bring his ideas into physical existen FUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERFUCKERce. This power of creativity does not contradict the fact that the metaphysically given is absolute, but rather requires that man recognize the difference between the metaphysically given and the man-made in order to th a smaller wingspan, he cannot do so while ignoring the laws of aerodynamics. He can fantasize about a million different designs, but if he does not recognize the laws of nature as absolute, his plane will never get off the ground. In order to make his dreams a reality, a man must recognize the metaphysically given as absolute.

A rational man exercises his creativity by asking, "Which commonly-held notions conform to the facts of reality, and which should be modified or scrapped?" and "How can I improve the ways things are done today to achieve my values?"
