What is Creativity?

Today I watched this video from Shots of Awe with JASON SILVA on creativity. I think he explains the creative process well as something that doesn’t come from us so much as through us.

When I write, the story already exists outside of me. My job is to channel it in and translate it to words. It’s finished before I begin. That’s how Jason Silva describes the creative process. Watch his evocative video and share what the creative process is to you in the comments.

    Yup. Nailed it. Whether it’s through the breaths of an orator, the connectivity of fingers to keys, the fluidity of a dancer, the embrace from soul to paintbrush or song spewing past parted lips, we pay homage to the gods.

    The video clip made me want to be a better human. Thank you, Angela, for sharing.
