Science, the arts, religion, business, love... all aspects of life require creativity and creative thinking. Whether it is faith or science-based leap, or literal leap of faith, humans are intrinsically creative, inventive, and curious. Many other creatures in the ground, sky and sea also use creativity but the levels to which those uses translate is quite different when considering abstract thinking, and how we live within the concepts of human time, past, future, and the ever-changing present.
A child said, to an adult, "I can't draw." The adult replied handing the child a paper and crayon, "Can you write your name?" "Why, yes!" said the child with a laugh! The adult answered with a smile, "Then you just drew a beautiful picture." Writing, be it an alphabet or hieroglyphics are complex learned symbols of mean, compiled from formalized markings with agree upon meanings used to illustrate, communicate, write, draw. The same way the earliest of cave paintings thousands of years ago, where not created as wall décor by an interior decorator, these images were a language, sacred, symbolic, works done in the cave's cathedral bowels, safe from damage and thousands of years of discover. They are also drawings of profound accuracy, expression, and abstraction, down to the very handprints on those walls.
The cave works are deep, literally, creative, and celebratory in the same way a child learning to write their name is. And that fission of joy, spiking through one's brain, wiring new neurons, synaptic and new neurological connections, pathways is the magic of creativity, that we all have as a bottomless wellspring to continually tap, grow and learn from.
