In my opinion you ask questions, which may have an interesting answer, but really nothing more than this. And if nothing is created, then why do you search for a driving force of creation?
What if there is no driving force?! You don't need a driving force, if you realize, that there is no "why" ! Maybe the creator creates, because that simply is what he does?!
If energy is intelligent, then it knows what it is doing. So your so called energy would be creating. What you call energy seems to have similarities with what we call creator.
Everything you say sounds somehow scientific to me. In my opinion science just another form of religion. In fact, I think science is the most controlling believe system there ever was.
But science is like everything else... nothing more than an idea. I refuse to see it as absolute truth, because we can imagine things, where science says that these things are impossible.
If it would be impossible to travel faster than light, for example, I think it would be impossible to think of it.
Maybe it all goes like this... if you believe one way, you will find things supporting your idea, and if you believe another way, you will find other things to support this idea.
Just one last thought that came to me just a second ago... what is the driving force of creation?
What is your driving force to search for love?
What is your driving force for dreaming of having a family?
What is your driving force for the wish to have children?
If anything is not rational, their machines will not compute!
But I think, we are not able to really make them disappear in a sense that they would all die or something like that, but if we would not believe in angels, then we would give them the opportunity to decide to forget, that they are these angelic beeings. I could imagine, that we even could make them believe, that there are no angels and that there is no god. But if they would decide to remember after a time, there would be nothing we could do about them remembering who they are, as they could not stop us from remembering who we are. No one could win in this fight. (so how about stop fighting?)
Intelligent work is learning, teaching, and working.
And this is what energy does. It organizes itself into an ever-increasing complexity of intelligent patterns and forms to more effectively and efficiently carry out its purpose which is intelligent work.
The information is always there, the only thing that changes is the patterns of perceiving it. We grow in intelligence. The force driving this growth is the same force that drives anything else.
The answer to that question is the answer to "What is the driving force of evolution?" That is because you are evolution. Evolution is the progression of intelligent energy towards intelligent infinity.
