‘Create’: To take what exists in whatever form/pattern and rearrange to a differrent form/pattern, that, can be more orderly, or less orderly form/pattern, from the original.
Ex. you have created a chaotic mess out of the blankets on the bed ergo Or, you have created pretty, organized presentation of blankets on the bed.
Universe/God does not create. Universe/God exists and forms/patterns are in constant change. It is said that the only guarantee is change.
Ergo, the word ‘create’ best applies to human activities.
To create appears to be correlated to intention, however, we may create this or that, unintentionally i.e. resultants of our thoughts or actions may create unintended consequences.
It may be that nothing is created or invented, in the sense, that, there is exist a finite set of what is possible to occur within our finite, occupied space Universe/God, and humans discover the various possible form/pattern arrangements.
Locally it may be novel or unique creation, however, the same creation may occur in other places and other times, given and eternally existent and finite, occupied space Universe/God
