'Creativity' Chapter

Creativity

The world is like a huge ongoing sound. Some originally saw this as the voice of god. Physicists consider it to be a field of information. Our ancestors even had no word for creativity. To their thinking it was a form of discovery, and later even seen as the process of divine revelation. Only in a relatively short span of time have we come to see it as a personal ability.

Behind everything you seek to create, there is a process, a way of implementation and agency. You can’t paint without the brushes, but you pay little mind to the brushes while painting. Many attribute this unseen process, this agency, to a god. In my experience, god has a strong resonance in this domain of life, but it’s broader than that.

“It is better to create than to be learned, creating is the true essence of life” Barthold Georg Niebuhr

“Enthusiasm is excitement with inspiration, motivation, and a pinch of creativity.” Bo Bennett

Afraid to Burn

A little science here, and I hope you don’t mind a mild adult reference. They have found that the brain responds the same to orgasm as it does to extreme agony, and the female orgasm even activates the emotional response… Seek More

Dragon’s Fire

What about things that motivate us from inside? The things that motivate us from the inside, they sometimes whisper, sometimes roar. Why are they so variable? Depends on what is talking I guess. I myself experience something that is metaphorically… Seek More

You are not Your Brain

I find since I hit my head I am not very creative. My pictures lack something. I can not role play well any more. I just hit a wall. I panic for I do remember how I was before, so… Seek More

Spirits in the World

This other way I mentioned… Behind everything you seek to create there is a process, a way of implementation and agency. You can’t paint without the brushes, but you pay little mind to the brushes while painting. Many attribute this… Seek More

Allies Help me Create

So shall I offer how my allies help me create? First they flag things for me. Anger is a very enthusiastic hunter. Doubt is much more quiet. Fear is always reminding me of what I have already seen. These are… Seek More

Creating Head Space

When song writing and bike riding become the same thing, then you understand creativity. If you can catch a wrench, you can catch a different view of your idea, or a severe headache, and then later a different view. How… Seek More
