…creativity is a platform for one to express what is inside. For some, it is a personal depiction of their reality, and for many, often times the goal is to share an important message and point of view about the collective reality we all live in. Creativity is a platform for connection. We want to share our points of view with others and spread information for the evolution of our species – we would not create nearly as much as we do now if we did not have others to connect with. Creativity is synonymous with INVENTING. Inventing is a revolution in a sense – a new way to do things. A NEW perspective. Why did Leonardo Da Vinci paint so many paintings, sculpt so many sculptures, invent so many things? He had a primal urge inside to help evolve our species. Creativity is a primal urge – we do it to stimulate ourselves and progress our species….

  1. Whoa! Blows my mind!
    When i see a beautiful painting or hear a moving song, see great theater, etc., I feel like it’s an act of love and generosity from the artist/s to all humans everywhere… but the ‘primal urge to contribute/’progress our species’? YES!!! SO insightful.
