What exactly is creativity?

14 posts in this topic

Hello.

As I'm building my existential vocabulary, I wanted to ask: WHAT EXACTLY IS CREATIVITY?

I would like to know your own perspective on this concept, called creativity.

For me, creativity means to be able to come up with a useful, original idea which can be turned into reality.

Or, to have the ability to solve problems in a unique way.

Or, using your imagination to invent something new and useful to others.

How about you?

What dose it mean for you to be creative? :)

to me creativity just mean the result of some kind of practice. 


No more victim mentality. 

Every single problem in my life is my responsibility no matter how hard it is.

Creativity is legitimately everything. I mean just think about it, it takes an absolute genius to construct such an existence and everything that inhabits it.

Yeah.

Creativity is the ability to transcend a useful, original idea into reality.

I agree. Reality is God's creativity. It takes something that's beyond comprehension to create such a magnificent reality.

- Creativity is the mental faculty by which the mind forms new ideas by combining other ideas.
- Creativity is the power that God possesses by which the entire world and the infinite phenomena and objects within it come into being.

Creativity is the practical application of madness.

Nailed it. Has everything to do with creation. We create in our minds effortlessly then manipulate reality to display our creation. 

Our ability to create is finite for we are a finite form, and the more finite we add the more our power to create as a society increases. As if we work as one cohesive unit. 

Creativity relies on imagination. Our ability to mix and match until it becomes something entirely unique. 

God creates life which ultimately desires to play God. To realize it's true nature.

Creativity is that you're having sex with something and you get a baby from it! THAT'S ALL!

for instance, let's assume, somebody is interested is physics, he is so immersed in it that he becomes one with it (it's like he's having sex with physics) and the baby is a new creative idea in physics field.

@The Don loving this thread.

For me, Creativity is about intuition, the voice. Not the monkey mind, but being. I've found the more meditation I do the more creative I become.

The more you quiet the mind the more the creativity unfolds. Creativity can also come from emotional turmoil, inner struggle and living life on the line. Almost as if you have nothing left, but this.

It is this feeling that you have to make something, that energy that is pushing you to do it. It is in a way making without thinking (but maybe depends on a discipline), it is like you have nothing to do with it - you are not doing it, you are a piece of it that is manifesting the new.
