"Grégory croyait que l’art, comme la religion, représente un domaine de l’expérience qui privilégie les modes de pensée créaturaux. Une œuvre d’art est le résultat d’un processus mental comme une conque, un crabe ou un corps humain. [...] Chaque œuvre d’art dépend d’un ensemble complexe de relations intérieures et peut être considérée comme l’un des nombreux exemples permettant de comprendre les ’structures qui relient’ et la nature de la ’Creatura’. "

Mental process 2

When this recognition of difference was put together with the clear understanding that Creatura was organized into circular trains of causation, like those that had been described by cybernetics, and that it was organized in multiple levels of logical typing, I had a series of ideas all working together to enable me to think systematically about mental process as differentiated from simple physical or mechanistic sequences, without thinking in terms of two separate "substances." My book Mind and Nature: A Necessary Unity combined these ideas with the recognition that mental process and biological evolution are necessarily alike in these Creatural characteristics.

Impacts and differences

Jung’s book [Seven Sermons to the Dead ] insisted upon the contrast between Pleroma, the crudely physical domain governed only by forces and impacts, and Creatura, the domain governed by distinctions and differences. It became abundantly clear that the two sets of concepts match and that there could be no maps in Pleroma, but only in Creatura. That which gets from territory to map is news of difference, and at that point I recognized that news of difference was a synonym for information.
