INTUITION

Creativity creates creativity.  If you can conceive of something, you are on the way to creating something.  Before we thought some things had the probability of existing, they didn’t exist.  For example, the four minute mile, that the earth is round, being able to send invisible messages through the air.  Just think of the benefit that science fiction has been to developing the probability of things that we previously thought could not exist.  For example, a man on the moon; exploring Mars by robot and sending the results back to earth.

If you don’t ask a question, you won’t get an answer.  Most of the time the pathway to an answer is developed by asking questions, especially the right ones.  For example, how do we create a three dimensional replica of something that is like a photograph or projected image of a film strip which is a two dimensional replica of something that can be sent across space.  It is a hologram, the most notorous one recently has been of Michael Jackson dancing at an award presentation.rp_300px-Pieter_Bruegel_d._Ä._075b.jpg

Is creativity limited by our imagination or is our imagination limited by our creativity?  Would the things that have been created in this and the last century be considered magic and therefore evil by some people in the previous centuries?  Something a person doesn’t understand and therefore can’t conceive of is often considered to be evil.  Natives who saw sailing ships on the horizon from the shore in what are now called the Americas did not perceive them or recognize them as sailing ships as they had no previous experience with them.  They had no conception of such a thing.

We, too, must expand our horizons.  We must derive new possibilities from what we know and from them go on to derive even more fantastic possibilities.  What if aliens from outer space made contact with natives in south america and egypt and gave them knowledge and skills which helped them build architectual marvels?  How does that change what you think about what happened there and what future inventions might you hypothesize we might create from this?

The Wings Become Windows

Here we are constantly discovering marvelous possibilities that were limited by our previous ways of thinking until we made new discoveries about earth and the things on it and surrounding it.  Here at home, we have canines that can smell things that we as humans, don’t, and can detect the presence of things we, humans can’t by smell.  There are animals that can camouflage themselves by taking on the coloration and textures of their surroundings.  What does that make you think about the stories of the possibilities of the invisible man?
