The online dictionary says it means "creative force", creating something, something that did not exist before.
We assume that prior knowledge and skills are crucial to the creative process. Without an understanding of tones, sublime music cannot be composed. Without a mastery of arithmetic, one does not become an eminent mathematician. And today - today creativity is often associated with problem solving, but for me personally the definition and association of the statement with "Create something new" is essential.
But where does it really come from - the creativity.
Its origin and its mechanisms are still a mystery today, but there is this beautiful old idea of a universal, unified consciousness. A realm of consciousness in which all information is located and which is neither local nor infinite in space and time. The words for this are many and varied - from divine to luminous to absolute, everything is represented.
I liked the following suggestion by Ralph Waldo Emerson, a leading representative of transcendentalism. According to the credo: Learn, be open, even to spontaneous thoughts. Don't simply reject your own idea and grasp the chance.
