Creativity is a state that allows us to touch the unknown and to bring it into the phenomenal world: To make the invisible visible.
The unknown is a territory that holds all possibilities, until it is revealed. The act of revealing – that is creativity.
Unknown areas are full of lure, yet, like deepest, darkest Africa once upon a time, it appears as a fearful place; a place of mystery, full of danger, mythologized into a place where one is destroyed, devoured, and never heard from again. Many fear the unknown. Ah, but once opened up to the light of day and fully explored, Africa is a wondrous, exotic place and part of the known world. Bravo to the brave explorers. Are you among them? Dr. Livingston, I presume?
