I saw a program, most likely on National Geographic Channel but I wouldn’t swear to that statement. The program showed a chimpanzee vs. man. In many ways the chimpanzee was superior in strength and in speed of accomplishing tasks.
It amazed me to see how fast the chimpanzee could put the round block in the round hole, etc. I guess I didn’t realize how intelligent, at least in comparison to humans, chimpanzees actually are. But there was one crucial difference. Man has the ability to make huge leaps in creativity. Man can invent, design, and create and the chimpanzee can’t.
Creativity. Making something out of nothing. Seeing a problem and devising a solution. That concept means nothing in life is ever a wall. It’s simply a means to create a new doorway-or a ladder-or a rope. Whatever the situation calls for.
My son is an artist. I’m a writer. When he paints he creates something from nothing. When I write, the nebulous thoughts swirling around in my head are given life. When I stop to think what an artist, or a writer, actually does I am totally awe-struck.
I’m in the process of creating. Book #1 is being edited right now. Book #2 will be going to the editor by August 15th. Before I put the words on paper I had nothing. But man is a creative creature and I am so excited to see a product that was previously non-existent taking on life and becoming real. I’ve very excited.
