Using Art Creation to Make Man-Made Systems Human Adaptive to Lift our Human-Potential

Michaell Magrutsche

Michaell Magrutsche

, Austrian/Californian multidisciplinary artist, creativity-awareness educator, speaker, and author. He works on raising awareness of our limitless human potential and comprehending wisdom. Michaell is an advocate for helping understand neurodiversity. Michaell’s dyslexia and dysgraphia forced him to develop an awareness of seeing the world purely from a human perspective. Creating art completed his awareness of what it is to be human-relevant vs system-relevant.

Michaell’s talent is recognizing context due to his neurodiversity to seed a new consciousness that allows us to unveil the untapped superpowers of human limitlessness, art/creativity, healthy discourse, and adaptability to make all humans fit within our human tapestry. Because Michaell has been a sick child also dyslexic and has dysgraphia (hand-eye coordination) he could only navigate in very few systems. Michaell was forced to find his salvation in art. Interacting with others outside of systems and creating art helped him feel humane and got him through life.

Michaell is completely self-taught. Art allowed him to experience life with other humans and 5 books later, Michaell produced with Robert Evans and became a City Arts Commissioner, etc., etc. Michaell discovered that creating (art) is humans’ greatest inherent superpower, followed by healthy dialogue and adaptability. These superpowers are applicable to everything from Creativity, Leadership, Business, Education, Relationships and all else humans focus on. Systems versus Humans: Today, Michaell keeps unveiling the limitations of all man-made systems like technology, science, and the economy that work with generalized knowledge. With 8 billion unique people, each with different DNA and fingerprints systems have become rigid and outdated. The main issue is that we have to adapt to systems increasingly and it has become too much life force we sacrifice to keep systems running. Since we are the Gods of man-made systems we can adapt them to our human individuality instead of us forcing ourselves to be system adaptive.

This work will finally raise our human potential instead of making us blind and ignore our human worth for system values and keep repeating history. Michaell’s mission is to show us something very different. We are in an unconsciousness crisis. We don’t see that all our ever-growing (financial principles) creations led us to a pivotal point of diminishing returns. Today, we have such an overabundance of goods and services that we have become incapable of consuming them. Everyone keeps creating and marketing their goods and services and besides lack of money, we don’t even have the time to sort out what’s best for us and use or consume all those offerings. Time has become humanity’s most valuable thing, not money, and systems that we give our life force to function. Work and tinkering can enrich our human experience to live more fulfilled lives but we unconsciously deprive ourselves of living a human life through systems, our metaverse. This is why we have to become conscious.

Humans have relinquished so much to systems, which demand more systems and more system work that our passion for human tinkering/creating has become work for money and now work to survive. Michaell’s truth compass is our humans’ limitlessness and nature’s sense of balance. The awareness and wisdom of this focus continuously reveal our eternal knowledge of humankind and the recognition of our human potential. That’s why there are no steps and nothing more to do but to be aware and become conscious about our three superpowers: Creation, Healthy Dialogue and Adaptability. Understand what it means to be human, our habitat nature, and how to be the steward for OUR habitat and the next generations. When conscious, change will happen automatically. “We could heal the world and others if everyone is being the best YOU can be for YOURSELF” to contribute with each’s uniqueness seamlessly to the whole of humanity.” We also need to understand how to use and interact with our man-made systems adequately so that humans and nature remain THE priority. This will keep adding to OUR human potential and therein lies heaven on earth.
