The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal name. The nameless is the beginning of heaven and earth. The named is the mother of ten thousand things.

We gravitate to the observable, the testable and the verifiable. Perhaps this is a constant throughout history, though — an immutable human instinct: this near-inability to engage with the truly abstract and unobservable, the preference to focus on the immediate and tangible.

About this article

I have pulled together everything I have discovered about intent and the G-field that streams into the manifest from the unmanifest through the gap in time.

Much of my understanding comes from five sources:

  1. Talking with Angels, a collection of esoteric teachings transmitted by four “angels” in Hungary during the Second World War.
  2. Napoleon Hill’s 1937 bestseller, Think and Grow Rich!, containing wisdom of great potential value to aspiring Newcreators.
  3. Carlos Castaneda, in part by way of Creative Victory — a discourse on Castaneda’s body of work — authored by a mysterious man calling himself Tomas.
  4. Edward Matchett, a pioneer in the field of industrial design and the wider create-the-new arena.
  5. Iain McGilchrist, author of The Master and His Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World and The Matter with Things.
This article is one of the most challenging writing tasks I have attempted, mainly because I am compelled to use leftside language to describe rightside workings, which by their very nature are beyond description. I have no option but to offer you concepts, models, diagrams and metaphors that are poor substitutes for the inner knowing you would otherwise gain through visceral experience. Keep reminding yourself that this is just a map, and do not mistake it for the territory.

And be prepared for a tough assignment. Despite extensive and continuing editing, the article is long and dense, and you may find some parts heavy going. Some passages (such as these) are long simply because this website is the only place on the Internet where they exist, and condensing them would be a disservice. I urge you to remain patient, ward off cynicism, keep an open mind and press ahead. Your tenacity will be rewarded.

Any comments you may have will be gratefully received and acknowledged. You can find the contact form here.

The faith imperative

Newcreators must have faith — the secular kind — as a constant companion.

For the Newcreator, faith does not mean belief in God. Rather, it means “a critical but curious mind’s readiness to adopt a reality model (even if provisionally) for which there is less than absolute, empirical proof”. The author of this definition, excerpted from his essay The Dialogic Imperative, is the late Jay B. Gaskill.

Without this kind of faith, the first superpower, Transcend the Mundane, cannot be activated, because the rational mind will reject the idea of enriching the world through unconditional service, and it will refuse to acknowledge the presence of the G-field.

Until Transcend the Mundane has been activated, the other superpowers — Enrich the World and Create the New— will remain inactive.

Those exploring the Newcreate way of creating the new must put logic on hold, quieten negative self-talk, silence the inner critic, set aside scepticism and proceed with playful curiosity, an experimental attitude and trusting acceptance. Proof will show up along the way, vindicating earlier faith.

The G-field (impersonal) and intent (personal)

In the series of books written by Carlos Castaneda (view a list), his teacher Don Juan Matus describes intent as “the force that creates and animates the universe”.

Warriors know that intent is the abstract, the element that propels the warrior; intent is the flow of things, intent is the pervasive force that causes us to perceive; power; the force that permeates everything; intent is what makes the world.

Source: Creative Victory by Tomas
Others use a different name for this force. Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich! calls it Infinite Intelligence. Create-the-new pioneer Edward Matchett referred to it by various names including media, Creative Action, and primal power of the cosmos. I refer to this pervasive, impersonal form of intent in two ways: as supreme intent, and as the G-field (generative field).

It would be quite good to consider media along the lines of something seeking to manifest through us.

Anthony Blake, Director of Studies at The DuVersity, who knew and collaborated with Edward Matchett
View a collection of G-field synonyms

The G-field is not a resource for us to exploit for self-serving purposes. Rather, we form a creative alliance with it and act as a proxy for those who will experience the value, meaning and joy that will be generated down the track.

The G-field streams into the manifest from the unmanifest through the gap in time.

Intent at the universal (impersonal) and personal levels
Read about the three types of create-the-new work: create alone, create together, and help others create

The G-field is rather like a massive bundle of radio waves carrying a vast number of radio stations.

Intent enables you to tune into the radio station broadcasting the music your heart wants to dance to.

At the personal level, intent is a fervent desire to enrich the world, or a particular piece of it, with value, meaning and joy through unconditional service. Intent is experienced in the heart, where where mind (horizontal plane) and body (vertical plane) intersect.

The Newcreator's three selves

Mental self

The mind can lean towards the left, into mundane world, or towards the right, into primal world.

The Newcreator's three natures: Mind

We have seen that there are only two parts of your mind. One is ruled by the ego, and is made up of illusions. The other is the home of the Holy Spirit, where truth abides.

Source: A Course in Miracles, Lesson 66 | Download A Course in Miracles in its entirety (free — steer clear of of suspect pdf reader download links)
Mundane world is the everyday world, a default reality where people spend most of their waking lives. It is a world of descriptions. If it can be named, described and explained, it is part of mundane world. It is the sum total of everything that meets the eye, everything we know, everything in our world, everything the rational mind can imagine.

When we are left-inclined and immersed in mundane world, our thinking is constrained and sometimes even tainted by a host of beliefs, conventions, constructs, rules, norms, social codes and so on, thereby limiting possibilities for generative action. In his book Creative Victory, a discourse on the writings of Carlos Castaneda, Tomas uses the term the inventory when referring to these influences collectively.

In and of itself, the inventory is pure magic. It is a miracle of awareness that helps each of us create a sense of order out of the the chaos that surrounds us. In fact, the inventory does its job so well that it eventually tyrannizes us with its effectiveness.

And this:

Warriors know that the inventory is the mind of mankind; the inventory is the result of the way the first attention [i.e. leftside, mundane world] watches itself and takes notes about itself in whatever aberrant ways it can.

Tomas, Creative Victory
The psychiatrist and neuroscience researcher Dr. Iain McGilchrist states that the brain’s left hemisphere is “a narrow problem solving executor” and that it is “a wonderful servant, but a very poor master”, whereas the right hemisphere is “a broadly open contextualiser”. Alas, the servant thinks it is the master and seeks to suppress the power of the real master: the right hemisphere.

Leftside is associated with synthetic imagination, through which existing concepts are arranged into new combinations. In the innovation world, this process is called combinatorial creativity.

Primal world is place of pure perception: untamed, unfiltered, uncodified, unconceptualised. It is the reality you would experience if raised in the wilderness by wolves.

Primal world cannot be explained, it can only be experienced. As soon as we name or describe primal world we are propelled into mundane world.

When we are right-inclined and immersed in primal world, the creative form of imagination becomes available. It enables us to foresee, in the immediate or more distant future, possibilities for enriching the world or a particular piece of it with value, meaning and joy.

Physical self

We have at our disposal seven creative powers, each associated with a particular part of the body.

DevotionTranscend the MundaneTailboneEnacting personal intent by providing selfless service and enriching the world in a particular way.
1. The third eye is located between the eyebrows. The pelvic floor muscles (a.k.a PC muscles) are used to stop the flow of urine.
Powers located above the heart connect us with the source of everything that exists and could exist; the realm (or non-realm, as it has no existence) of infinite possibility; the unknown and unknowable; the eternal.

Those located below the heart connect us to the physical universe and all it contains; the realm of existence and realised possibility; the actual, the known; the temporal — as well as society’s infrastructure, institutions and resources.

Intent bridges and unites the two realms.

The field of the finite is all that we can see, hear, touch, remember, and describe. This field is basically that which is manifest, or tangible. The essential quality of the infinite, by contrast, is its subtlety, its intangibility. This quality is conveyed in the word spirit, whose root meaning is “wind, or breath.” This suggests an invisible but pervasive energy, to which the manifest world of the finite responds. This energy, or spirit, infuses all living beings, and without it any organism must fall apart into its constituent elements. That which is truly alive in the living being is this energy of spirit, and this is never born and never dies.

Spiritual self

The Newcreator's three selves: Spirit
When we are tuned into the G-field and in a generative state of consciousness, our intent is generative (seeking to create that which improves people’s lives and makes the world a better place) and our actions have generative consequences.

When we are tuned into the D-field and in a degenerative state, our intent is degenerative (having the intention or result of generating anti-value, or inhibiting or limiting value generation, or nullifying value) and our actions have degenerative consequences.

What intent is not

Intent is not a declaration of personal purpose, which would be a leftside-produced concept of questionable generative potential.

Intent is unrelated to strategic intent (pdf), a management concept originated by Gary Hamel and C. K. Prahalad. Intent precedes strategy. Strategy serves intent.

Intent is not the same as intention — see Intent versus Intention; Is there a difference? by Sheri Rosenthal.

The two indivisible elements forming the G-field

The G-field streams into the manifest from the unmanifest through the gap in time.

It is formed of two indivisible elements. Naming and describing these is problematic because the field is an aspect of primal world and therefore beyond the reach of language. The table below may offer some clues. The indivisible elements are labelled A and B.

Accessing the G-field: preconditions and enablers



A fervent desire to enrich the world with value, meaning and joy.

An unconditional service disposition.



Being open, curious, inviting and welcoming.

Absence of cynicism.

Setting aside beliefs, conventions, constructs, rules, behavioural norms and social codes.

‘Possibility Consciousness’ allows you to hold together in your mind all the unproven spiritual and supernatural phenomena which you experience, or which interest you, in a way that accepts them as a possibility. Treat this as a separate storage area in the mind. In this area of your consciousness you can build up material you wish to work with, while not having to judge it. You simply hold it as being possible.

Dancing (e.g. 5Rhythms).

Asking questions.

Working quickly.

I understand that matter, feelings and thoughts belong to the world of opposites 2. If we become aware of how they act in us, we transcend these 3 levels of the material world and embark on the way to the 4th level 3. In the same way, LIGHT 4 is then able to flood down from above, uniting the 3 lower levels with its radiance.

Lili Strausz, Talking with Angels, Dialogue 32
2. “The world of opposites” is another way of saying mundane world.
3. The fourth level corresponds with Intent.
4. Light is similar in meaning to the G-field.
The seven creative powers

The radio metaphor

The human is something like one of those ancient radios that required an aerial (antenna ↑) and an earth (ground ↓) connection in order to function.

Crystal radio, circuit diagram
When we activate the first superpower, Transcend the Mundane (a fusion of Receptivity, Intent and Devotion), the creative powers represented by the three green discs in the image above), the top of our head becomes something like an antenna — a receiver of the G-field that streams into the manifest from the unmanifest.

Activation of the first superpower enables activation of the second superpower, Enrich the World, formed of Imagination and Realisation. With this superpower, we are able to foresee world enrichment possibilities and conceive truly original ideas for new creations with the potential to generate the imagined value, meaning and joy. This superpower also assists us in work aimed at realising the value generation potential of the new creations..

Activation of the first superpower also enables activation of the third superpower, Create the New, consisting of Conceptualisation and Manifestation, whereby we are able to flesh out embryonic concepts, give them existence in the manifest realm and introduce our creations to the world at large.

My brain is only a receiver. In the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know that it exists.

Nikola Tesla, via Higher Perspective

… reason gets a C when it comes to the inner world, because the rational mind doesn’t even know where an idea comes from, much less the source of creativity, insight, love, beauty, imagination, and many other aspects of mind. Consciousness cannot be explained objectively, despite the hopes and claims of neuroscience. The brain functions like a radio, delivering the music of the mind, as it were.

Source: A New View of Human Creativity, by Deepak Chopra

An alternative Bergsonian [philosopher Henri Bergson—see below] understanding of the function of the brain is that it acts as a type of “receiver,” somewhat similar to a radio or television set. Drawing upon this second metaphor, Bergson postulates that the neurochemical activity of the brain does not produce consciousness, but rather enables the brain to “tune into” appropriate “frequencies” of preexisting levels of consciousness—that is, the states of consciousness that correspond to waking life, dreaming, deep sleep, trance, as well as, at least potentially, the consciousnesses of other beings. Just as the programs received by a television set are not produced by the electrical activity within the television itself, but rather exist independently of the television set, in the same way, this Bergsonian understanding of the brain/consciousness relationship postulates that consciousness is neither contained within nor produced by the brain.

G. William Barnard in his book Living Consciousness: The Metaphysical Vision of Henri Bergson, p. xxxiii, citing philosopher Henri Bergson

Imagine that you are a Kalahari Bushman and that you stumble upon a transistor radio in the sand. You might pick it up, twiddle the knobs, and suddenly, to your surprise, hear voices streaming out of this strange little box. … Now let’s say you begin a careful, scientific study of what causes the voices. You notice that each time you pull out the green wire, the voices stop. When you put the wire back on its contact, the voices begin again. … You come to a clear conclusion: The voices depend entirely on the integrity of the circuitry. At some point, a young person asks you how some simple loops of electrical signals can engender music and conversations, and you admit that you don’t know—but you insist that your science is about to crack that problem at any moment.

Ted was a design engineer who transcended the confines of industrial design to develop methods of creativity of astonishing spiritual genius.

In the First Edition of Creative Action, Matchett talks about Creative Action as something we might do.

Every human being has a creative potentiality greater than he can ever tap. The fact of material existence in a material world is the greatest of his constraints to true freedom. The limitations of his particular personality further inhibit his expression. At any one moment, his mechanical identifications can result in virtual enslavement by his circumstances, without the vision of a better future to which he might aspire.

Behind these apparent constraints to creative expression lie possibilities for freedom. Creative Action is the intelligent search for and proper use of such opportunities. When an opportunity is grasped, and responsibility taken, then the Action has its maximum effect. But Creative Action is really a continuous flow of creative acts; it generates a force that can heal divisions, make better use of all resources, solve urgent problems and bring more meaning into all achievements and pursuits.

By bringing forth people’s latent potentialities in a business, home or social situation, all kinds of breakthroughs become possible. The chief value of Creative Action is that it can bring about an understanding of the essential needs and priorities in a complex world, bringing as its fruits increased harmony and fulfilment. The principles can be summarised as follows:

  1. Action extends consciousness, capability and attainment only where it involves a genuine personal sacrifice.
  2. Action succeeds to the extent that it is needed by and benefits the community as a whole.
  3. Action succeeds to the extent that it complements and gives direction to efforts, impulses, desires and concerns already existing within the immediate and wider community.
  4. Action succeeds to the extent that people can identify with it: thus making that action the true extension or projection of themselves.
  5. Action succeeds to the extent that the negative as well as the positive aspects of human nature are recognised and taken into account.
  6. Action succeeds to the extent that it is a genuine service, well beyond the notions of “doing good”.
  7. Action succeeds to the extent that it becomes at one with the primal creative process, which is active behind and within all the affairs of nature and of man.
Edward Matchett, The Principles for Creative Action, in Creative Action, First Edition (Turnstone Books, 1975)
In the Second Edition, he describes Creative Action as a “stream” that “issues forth” from “the eternal realm”.
  1. The Creative Action of the eternal has a latent, very definite, constant predisposition to produce meaning 5 in whatever matter it meets and combines with. Its own nature demands this.
  2. The Creative Action of the eternal always ‘issues forth’ in space-time on a waveband of meaning. Its own nature demands this too, and it must always remain true to that nature. 6
  3. Creative Action is utterly prolific: not obviously so in most of the works of man – these usually make little or no contact with it – but quite definitely so throughout the natural world where it drives and sustains everything, including the entire process of Evolution.
  4. Creative Action can become the chief and constant component of all our ‘own’ work and play – and, when it does, all that we put our hands to thus gains a wealth of meaning and appropriateness.
  5. We can learn to link with a stream of Creative Action so fully that it seems that all we think and do originates from within ourselves, rather than from the eternal realm. This degree of rapport and unification with Creative Action is exhilarating and deeply satisfying.

5. Matchett defines meaning as “that which makes life and work truly worthwhile”.
6. He is referencing his 5M equation: Appropriate form requires and demands that Media-plus-Matter be Made Meaningful in time dt {the immediate Moment we label ‘now’). dt (𝛿t) is delta time, which has two meanings, detailed here. For Matchett, delta time is not in fact “the immediate Moment” but rather the nothingness between two moments.

The Angels

What happened in Matchett’s life during the 35 years between the two editions that led to the shift from Creative Action as something we might do, to Creative Action as something that inspires, helps or even compels us to do?

The answer, at least in part, is his discovery of the book Talking with Angels, a collection of esoteric teachings given by four ‘angels’ in Hungary during the Second World War.

The English language version of Talking with Angels first appeared in 1988 and I have a photocopy of a handwritten index made by Matchett, so this is a plausible explanation.

These are some of the relevant themes running through the Angels’ teachings:

  • Our task is to become a conscious link between the created world (the manifest, matter, the temporal) and the creating world (the unmanifest, source, the eternal). The book’s explanatory diagrams (see here) led to the discovery of the seven creative powers.
  • Do not fix what is broken or rearrange what already exists. Create the new.
  • We have a seventh sense: Light-Awareness (the sixth is a union of the five, which some would call intuition). Light-Awareness is our ability to perceive and co-create with the G-field. Read more about Light-awareness
  • Time is not what we think it is.
The crack in space-time

The gateway to the narrow path is: Omega – Alpha.
The one who passes through it bodily – in time – steps into death.
The one who passes through it spiritually – beyond time – steps into eternity.
Can you measure time between Omega and Alpha?
A fleeting instant ends – a new instant begins.
Between the two, there is no time.
There is a gateway to eternity:
It opens not at the beginning, but at the end.
The Creator sets in motion
and the new instant is;
the old is no more.

The truly new comes from nothing

Carlos Castaneda / don Juan Matus

In the Carlos Castaneda books, his teacher don Juan Matus talks about intent, which he describes as “the force that creates and animates the universe”. The term Divine energy also appears.

Napoleon Hill

Napoleon Hill, in his 1937 bestseller Think and Grow Rich!, uses the term Infinite Intelligence.

“Infinite Intelligence” is the term Hill uses to describe “God,” or “Divine Power,” or the “Supreme Being” at work in the universe and whose influence is felt everywhere within it. His conception of God, or Infinite Intelligence, is richly textured and multi-faceted. God, to Hill, is more than a divinely spiritual, personal, moral force. God is a source of intelligence, direct communication, and exchange of information—between the Supreme Intelligence itself and the individual, and even between individuals. It is clear that Hill writes primarily from a Judeo-Christian perspective, but his view of Infinite Intelligence is nonsectarian and widely encompassing. As you read the book, notice how Hill sees Infinite Intelligence at work in the lives of Jesus, Gandhi, and Mohammed, as well as in all individuals whose mental states are “attuned” to the power of Infinite Intelligence. Hill is never “preachy” about Infinite Intelligence and how one should respond to it, but to fully understand and utilize The Think and Grow Rich Philosophy, it is necessary to understand the part that Infinite Intelligence—God—plays in it.

More quotes

Intent This is the directing of will by the protocol of the energy that moves in our spirit as human beings, not our mind-ego. The movement of intent comes from a deep understanding of, and a deep synchronicity with the interior powers of the life-force. Intent has an unmistakable character, and it is something to be known, not to be described. Intent was also described 7 as being the position of the assemblage point that gave way to “silent knowledge” – the point of awareness that modern-day man has abandoned by yielding to the alignment of reason.
7. This is ironic, but we are in Leftsiide, the mundane world of description.

Although we can’t tell Intent what to do, Toltecs do invoke it and use it. I know that this seems to be a contradiction in terms. But since we are all part of the one universal life, if our purpose is the same as the purpose of the Infinite, then our command becomes the command of the Infinite. When this happens, we can align with Intent and utilize it in creating our life.

Sheri Rosenthal, Intent versus Intention; is there a difference?

The best innovations — both socially and economically — come from the pursuit of ideals that are noble and timeless: joy, wisdom, beauty, truth, equality, community, sustainability and, most of all, love. These are the things we live for, and the innovations that really make a difference are the ones that are life-enhancing. And that’s why the heart of innovation is a desire to re-enchant the world.

We can learn to link with a stream of Creative Action so fully that it seems that all we think and do originates from within ourselves, rather than from the eternal realm. This degree of rapport and unification with Creative Action is exhilarating and deeply satisfying.

Edward Matchett, create-the-new pioneer

Through the faculty of creative imagination, the finite mind of man has direct communication with Infinite Intelligence. It is the faculty through which ‘hunches’ and ‘inspirations’ are received. It is by this faculty that all basic, or new ideas are handed over to man.

Napoleon Hill in his 1937 bestseller Think and Grow Rich!

What we need is a theory of psychology which tells us where new ideas come from and a theory of society which tells us when new ideas are likely to have social effect and delineates the mechanisms through which that effect operates. As far as I know we do not have either of these theories.

David Bohm is saying that consciousness is less of the explicate order (matter, the manifest) and more of the implicate order (the unmanifest). I have amended the quote accordingly.
