    Indeed. I've noticed this in a lot of people.
    I think it's because most people have either enough satisfaction to creatively improve their lives or they feel like they can't in today's society. Or people could just be too focused on doing the routine, what's expected of them, so they don't get in trouble by their superiors and lose their job, in which would cause them to possibly have great difficulty in finding a new one.
    It could also be computers...

    Is this a duplicate thread?

    My first thought is They can stop medicating the creatives into mediocrity just because the world of linear thinking doesn't hold their attention!!

    In all seriousness tho, I would be very interested indeed to see stats on this compared to previous cradles of creativity hot spots, and any data that could indicate if there is a percentage increase in ADD/ADHD diagnosis and medication.

    Yeah, it's a duplicate thread.

    I wanted an NT response and now an "academic" response.

    I think ritalin is the cause. Whenever they find a child with ADHD or ADD, they pump them full with that crap. The ADHD might disappear, but the advantages of it, like creativity, disappear too.


    (It's actually also the reason why I don't take that crap: it'll ruin my only talent.)

    Creativity is fun. If it's fun, it's useful.

    Creativity is completely useless, just like you.

    We used to think you were put here by God for a purpose, but we find you evolved without any purpose whatsoever.

    We used to think the world had a purpose like a book - a beginning, a middle and an end, composed of linear, sequential sentences, paragraphs, chapters, books and libraries. But instead we find the world is a random access search engine.

    We used to think we were the centre of the universe but find the centre of the universe is everywhere.

    We used to think pure mathematics was the language of God, but instead find it is incomplete.

    We used to think our purpose was to bring order to chaos, but instead find creativity emerging from order.

    We used to work instrumentally, but now we work intrinsically. We do things just for their own sake.

    And when we do things for their own sake, we love them and they love us.

    But if we use anything as a tool, it replies in kind and treats us like a tool too - we make our tools and our tools make us.

    Some here are fond of telling us, everything is a tool - tooled up and ready for use.

    But it is plain we are all useless - of no use to anyone but ourselves.

    We are not means, but ends. We are not a means to an end, but an end in ourselves.

    I am not a number - I am a metaphor. And this is my glory.
