Two Ways to Think about Creativity

There is a right way to think about creativity and a wrong way.

The wrong way is simple and obvious:Closed Creativity is about getting a great idea. Is a team involved? OK: then use some idea-generation software and brain-storming and choose the best new idea from what emerges. After that…well it's just implementing, isn't it?

The right way is fascinating and stimulating:Closed Creativity brings something of value into social existence i.e. it is an endeavour of yours that is triggered by the sense of challenge. It often involves or affects others and requires you to deal with numerous difficulties over time.

The picture of creativity discovered and developed here depends on intensifying the higher transcendental levels in the framework of personal endeavour and keeping them in continuous operation. This is typically enabled within THEE by the Structural Hierarchy form.

The Components of Creativity

Personal creativity involves many components that operate independently, simultaneously and interactively. The use of the framework is spontaneous and may be barely conscious for someone functioning naturally. The full picture is shown below: Better viewing: narrow or close left navigation column; use browser zoom if needed.

To properly understand each of the components (i.e. Groups), specific qualities have been provisionally assigned to the internal Levels. These qualities characterize each particular Grouping.

Recap on the Story

The components of creativity were identified as we progressed up the Groupings. This recapitulation of the creative conditions, forces and states is described by working our way downwards.

ClosedRsH-G7: Creativity starts with courageously accepting a challenge.

However, nothing significant happens until you address uncertainties and get to grips with whatever makes the challenge feel like a challenge.

ClosedRsH-G6: Allowing immersion in the challenge enables breakthroughs.

However, your breakthroughs depend on their integration and contribution to the continuing progress of your project, even if this is sometimes slow and painful.

ClosedRsH-G5: You can gain vantage through perseverance.

However, perseverance is only as effective as the personal strengths you can bring to bear.

ClosedRsH-G4: You commit yourself and all your capabilities to the project.

However, commitment does not provide everything needed: you must stimulate inputs from yourself and others.

ClosedRsH-G3: Generate support through focusing your enthusiasm.

However, enthusiasm must rest on a growing credibility in regard to what you intend.

ClosedRsH-G2: Express confidence by deepening your conviction.

However, confidence and conviction depend on unleashing your inner driveso as to move forward freely and powerfully.

ClosedRsH-G1: Autonomy enables the fullest use of your willpower.

Your reserves of willpower await the experience of a worthy challenge—which takes us back to where we started:  RsH-G7.
