Accepting is the stuff that is understood as soon as it is picked up.
Creating is the stuff that is only understood when it has been looked at from many perspectives. One's understanding of these things needs to be constructed from the ground up.
Accepting = Limiting when Dynamic, Empowering when Static
Creating = Empowering when Dynamic, Limiting when Static
Limiting/empowering is difficult to capture... but powerful. There are a number of different ways to distinguish either that aren't easy to reconcile though they certainly are united in one concept:
Limiting: fully determined
Limiting: in it's final state
Empowering: in a transient state
Limiting: must be
Empowering: could be
Limiting: singular (one possibility)
Empowering: multiplar (many possibilities)
I sometimes call Empowering "arbitrary". Not sure what the counterpart term is.
-- some of these describe the catagory of information while others describe a single unit that is a member of said catagory. For example, Empowering information is an under-determined catagory of information, which means it's individual members are contingent/arbitrary.
Accepting info is very safe and unpretentious. No one can disagree with it. It simply acknowledges something that exists.
Creating info is daring and precipitous. It's relyability depends on a great number of previous occasions. It may very well be wrong.
Interpose the two foregoing dichotomies with Static/Dynamic and you get some real cool stuff:
Accepting/Limiting/Dynamic: things that are simply acknowledged at face value. Pick it up and use it. No questions about it. Very safe and certain.
Creating/Limiting/Static: something encapsulated as a unit of understanding. Constructed from many observations and finalized after a long process of learning.
Accepting/Empowering/Static: something that was suggested as a possibility by one's direct observations. Something that could or could not be useful but undenyably exists as one of the many possibities.
Creating/Empowering/Dynamic: tricky... Something that is there but you don't know why. It invites wonder and curiousity. It can easily be copied and used but one would not know the significance of ones actions if one did. If a person ever does know what this kind of information is all about, it becomes the vessel of the person's most virtuous efforts. Application of a difficult to understand concept.
What we more or less learn from this:
Statics are all about boldly guessing things, bumping one's head, and finding out there are things you can't get around.
Dynamics are all about first behaving predictably and unpretentiously, then upon learning what's going on making the right moves with great erudition and skill.
Accepting/Limiting/Dynamic: I know this
Creating/Limiting/Static: I understand this
Accepting/Empowering/Static: this could be
Creating/Empowering/Dynamic: I see this, but why?
