Chaos and Creativity

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.

  217. My Own Personal Chaos Questions I asked myself constantly before presenting: Will I finish this on time? Will anyone find this as interesting as I do? Couldn’t slide x have a better image? Will people notice how badly designed this is? Is there too much text? Are there too many slides? Will I sweat too much on stage? Is this even interesting? Is it too short/too long? Does this even make sense? Will it all come together, or fall apart? Will the audience laugh? Will the equipment work? Do I really know what I’m talking about? Will anyone show up without being paid?
