How to use its Energy 

To use the energy think of the spiral going from the inner to the outer , is to realise the concept of a begging to an expansion point . To use it as a metal thought process , is to understand development, until you expand beyond yourself and it enters the realms beyond the mind. Then use the energy inwards and go down the spiral from the outer, finding the core of yourself or a universal unity.  The energy is that you are part of creation in constant growing complexity towards the tangent of reality. It is the act of creation or creativity.
