Ideapod – Sharing your creativity

The idea that nothing is truly original fascinates me

I more align with Jose and Katherine.

It seems clear to me that lots of things are new, and in a sense, everything is new, each new instant of time.

And in another sense, it seems clear now that what we experience isn’t reality, but a model of reality created by our subconscious brains, from current and past information from the senses, prior distinctions, and patterns copied from experience and intuitions we make.
And there are errors in all of these processes, resulting in many variations on themes.

Often new ideas start out as mistakes, that are then rapidly adapted (and sometimes not so rapidly).

I actually find the idea that everything is new equally as real and useful as the idea that nothing is new, and both seem to be false in some senses and true in others.

Creativity happens. The world today is very unlike the world my grandparents were born into.
It may be variations on themes in a sense, and those variations matter.

Seems like I might be a cancer survivor. Thinking about the systemic incentives within the world we find ourselves in, and how we might adjust them to provide an environment that supports everyone (no exceptions) - see www.tedhowardnz.com/money
