Creativity Develops Within

Creativity DevelopsMathemetician and Scientist, George Louis Leclerc de Buffon, was not afraid to explore and discover and argue all that he studied. He lived during the 1700’s, an age when no one questioned the idea of the earth being older than 6,000 years; yet de Buffon declared that it was over 75,000 years old.

He also had ideas about the human mind and creativity. He said,

“The human mind cannot create anything. It produces nothing until after having been fertilized by experience and meditation; its acquisitions are the germs of its production.”

Our ideas come from thoughts that must come from somewhere. But they do not come full grown. They begin as seedlings and develop until they burst forth with fruit or flowers. The more we know and begin to understand, the more we feed the ideas within us. That nurturing process begins to produce creativity until suddenly, a full-blown idea seems to come from nowhere and it surprises us with its shape, imagination, and even wit.

Each person carries these seedlings within. Nourish your mind and nourish the minds of others around you. Creativity is life-giving and self-perpetuating and you can have a part in it.
