Welcome to a presentation of a revolutionary approach to explaining the fundamental origin and nature of Creativity. What we are about to present here are the basic concepts that we present in our book CREATIVITY - A Science-based Outlook on Life and Work. So, What is Creativity and why is so important?
Why Creativity? Creativity has become
the most highly priced commodity in our economy. Human creativity is the ultimate economic resource. – Richard Florida Creativity is the most sought after and valued property in search of productive people for the higher job market. – Daniel Eriksson and Numerous Authors, Researchers and Politicians The result of creativity ... is the effectiveness, the wellbeing, the aliveness and the optimal experience called FLOW , making our lives more interesting and productive. Our future is now closely tied to human creativity. – Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
What is Creativity? Creativity is
the ability to bring something into existence that was not there before. - Webster’s Dictionary Creativity is the connecting and rearranging of knowledge in the minds of people, who allow themselves to think flexibly - to generate new, often surprising ideas that others judge to be useful. - Consensus of 40 Different Definitions From 1950 to 1997 from “Creativity, Innovation and Quality” by Paul E Plsek
The Space/Time Reality or Space+Time
Reality ? <ul><li>We live in a Space/Time reality, which cannot be examined or understood with the help of our limited five senses. </li></ul><ul><li>The part of our world we can examine and </li></ul><ul><li>understand is a Space + Time reality. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Creativity is the ability to
bring something </li></ul><ul><li>into existence that was not there before - </li></ul><ul><li>from a possibility in the future. </li></ul><ul><li>It is generated from our inner domain of Being </li></ul>
The source of the communication
for CreAction in the domain of Being <ul><li>Intuition is the extension of the unlimited five senses into Space/Time, which reveal the real world. </li></ul><ul><li>Integrity is the true representation of life as obtained by our unlimited senses . </li></ul><ul><li>Intention is both the built-in life force and/or the powerof </li></ul><ul><li>growth, as well as the conscious commitment to create something revealed from Intuition </li></ul><ul><li>and Integrity. </li></ul>
The general condition for generating
CreActions If we can ignore the advice and objections from our ego and our conscious mind, and do what we have promised and keep our word only because we promised to do so, then we will receive the outer and inner support for our project that is necessary to produce unforeseen and outstanding results, which often surpass our highest goals and expectations. CreActions are generated when we live by our word and not as a reaction to circumstances surrounding us.
Creative Problem Solving <ul><li>” The
world we have made as a result of the level of </li></ul><ul><li>thinking we have done thus far, creates problems we </li></ul><ul><li>cannot solve at the same level at which we </li></ul><ul><li>created them.” - Albert Einstein </li></ul><ul><li>Problems created in Knowing </li></ul><ul><li>can be solved through Being. </li></ul>
CREATIVITY provides: A universal DEFINITION
OF CREATIVITY A foundation for a new CREATIVITY SCIENCE A tool for CREATIVITY LEARNING A basic OPERATING SYSTEM for all human activities It has universal application because it transcends all cultural, ethnical, philosophical and religious differences among people
Human Resources Development Consists of
three main parts: 1. The Pedagogical part: the development of the domain of Knowing, which consists of adding new, more, better and different knowledge, experience, skills etc. 2. The Psychological part: consists of unlearning and correcting the misinterpretations and/or the misunderstandings of our reality that our five limited senses have stored as knowledge, experience, opinions, beliefs etc. in our domain of Knowing. 3. Creative part: explaining how to generate creative actions from the domain of Being. It is from the Creative part that all development, progress, success, Fl ow and Al iveness will emerge.
