The Story of Creativity
Conceptual mind and Artistic sensation
Being creative means being conceptual and having artistic sensation.
For the people who have vertical mind (normal people), Charlie Chaplin is Charlie Chaplin. However, for the people who have conceptual mind (creative people), Chaplin can be linked to Japanese Samurai having a sword instead of a stick and wearing Hakama (Samurai's pants) looks like Chaplin's loose pants. Let's imagine, our lovely tasty Pringles was found from the image of wet leaves, and cell phone was invented by Martin Cooper, who was interested in Captain Kirk's transceiver of Star Trek.
Conceptual mind can be any shape.
Creativity is normally hidden behind the phenomena. So that, being creative finding ideas mean looking for intersections in conceptual mind which are seemingly unrelated. The fundamentals are always there. Do you think adults are not creative anymore comparing to children? Remember, we are just forgetting being creative as the world education and the environment of the society make people vertical focusing on details.
Do not see the surface of the sea, but under the sea. There are many beautiful fishes.
We can come back to creative world.
Remember, we were all creative when we were children.
Design thinking is quite popular in modern business.
However, how can we feel and find the fundamentals what the customers truly need?
Did you know this is what exactly theatre directors do?
They connect seemingly unrelated ideas, and feel what guests fundamentally feel.
Be conceptual and have artistic sensation.
Now we know.
We must cultivate the environment to be creative before using theories.
Otherwise, any great theory can not work well.
This is the timing to start coming back to creative world.
I believe everybody can be creative.
