creativity - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
There was a creativeness to the Jew that made us all better, that brought the best out of each of us and raised the intellectual bar we expected of ourselves.
It is the apparently random series of events and thoughts from any of our senses, from any stimuli, that is the fertile ground of creativity. Be it from providence or serendipity, an open brain, alert for new possibilities, is always the right place for these precious new seeds to grow. Creativity is the recombining of what is in search for truth and discovery. Thus creativity requires freedom and a sense of emotional safety, always.
My creativity loves to play in any season, whatever the weather, yet autumn has arrived. The foliage above could be my infinite dreams of scarlet and gold, playful in the soft light, colours ignited for all who care to see. They are the candles of the daylight, these trees that bring their art to our world, their branches taking root in the sky.
Creativity is atypically wide neural nets - the wiring of the brain being broader, linking to different areas. Creativity is enhanced by the arts - dance, writing, imagery and sport. It is perhaps the oldest and most effective form of brain surgery. It is the way we enhance our intelligence and increase the rate of innovation, invention and empathy simultaneously. Put simply, creativity is a transferable skill because the brain gets wired better, less single track and more a network able to interrelate concepts and knowledge, less "single track road" and more "spider web." If we push maths and science at the expense of the arts and sport, it is akin to shooting athletes in the feet and expecting them to win.
BOO!!! Are you scared? No? Oh shucks, and I tried so hard. Never mind, fear is quite harmful anyway, aren't we saturated with it?
I personally found that fear never "scared the hell out of me," but it scared the love out of me. I can't be "scared straight" but I can be scared senseless.
Fear decreases our intelligence and creativity, when I stop watching the news and horror movies my creativity surges and I feel great. Then I can be a positive influence in the world with the talents I have. Then I am happy. Then I feel blessed. xxx
BOO! Did I get you that time? What? Not even a little bit? Ah, come on! Jump a tiny bit, just for me? :)
The drive toward variation meets the drive toward conformity for group safety in opposite directions. The relative power of these forces in the neurology of each organism and the society will determine the strength of each. Variation is favoured by safety and has the power to drive creativity and discovery. Conformity is favoured by adversity in all forms, a recipe of negative factors combined. It is, however, worthy of note, that these forces are not equal. The history of humanity is a bloody tale of genocide. Thus only the survivors are our collective ancestors. Thus the drive toward conformity is a preparation for war and is amped in power by comparison. Thus in times of fear the proper leaders must have an upper brain (PFC) capable of dominating their primitive drive and converting that amped power into solution finding over war strategy. It is a simple switch, yet all leaders must possess the ability for such.
