Chaos and Creativity

67,746

Published on

There are 3 different classes of chaos that affect creativity: Universal, External, and Personal. Universal chaos is about finding the energy to create Something out of Nothing. External Chaos examines how life events shape us and connect us. Personal Chaos is about getting past our own doubts and fears and embracing what makes us different. This addendum to The Creative Method and Systems is meant to inspire creative-minded people to pursue what they love, with a little quantum physics thrown in for good measure.

  28. 28. In the beginning, there was… The Creative Method & Systems — Chaos & Creativity edition the Creative Method and systems 28
  29. 29. Nothing The Creative Method & Systems — Chaos & Creativity edition the Creative Method and systems 29
  30. 30. linguists define chaos as disorder and confusion The Creative Method & Systems — Chaos & Creativity edition the Creative Method and systems 30

  41. 41. They always start with a ‘seed’ The Creative Method & Systems — Chaos & Creativity edition the Creative Method and systems 41
  42. 42. A ‘seed’ allows them to base a new number off of an existing system The Creative Method & Systems — Chaos & Creativity edition the Creative Method and systems 42
  43. 43. The system is so complex that it is perceived as random The Creative Method & Systems — Chaos & Creativity edition the Creative Method and systems 43
  44. 44. Usually a computer just checks the time The Creative Method & Systems — Chaos & Creativity edition the Creative Method and systems 44
  45. 45. in milliseconds The Creative Method & Systems — Chaos & Creativity edition the Creative Method and systems 45
  46. 46. It uses this seed number to create a ‘random’ number The Creative Method & Systems — Chaos & Creativity edition the Creative Method and systems 46
  47. 47. But… Is that really random? The Creative Method & Systems — Chaos & Creativity edition the Creative Method and systems 47
  48. 48. This brings us to another definition of chaos The Creative Method & Systems — Chaos & Creativity edition the Creative Method and systems 48
  49. 49. “Unpredictable behavior so sensitive to changes and conditions that it appears random” The Creative Method & Systems — Chaos & Creativity edition the Creative Method and systems 49
