Creativity is a complex phenomenon rooted in survival. It can produce novel problem solving techniques as well as the creation of tangible and intangible items and ideas of value. It is inextricably linked to the development of human progress, our lives as individuals and collectively as a part of a community. The application of creativity has resulted in previously unthinkable advances, pro et contra, the life of our species. Creativity has given the human race, to name a few: culture, music, agriculture, urbanization, industrial pollution, mass extinction and the design and proliferation of nuclear weaponry. How wonderful.
