    Haha yeah, I also already assumed it would have been hence the comment in my original post about it being ironic. And this is doubly ironic....

    You don't need to do things in new, original, and creative ways. Rather, you can just follow tradition. Tradition makes it okay!

    And we have killed it.


    Nah, but in all seriousness, I read an interesting article on originality, which more or less argues that originality isn't important and that authenticity and the desire to create and innovate is. Actually, it may not have been an article. It may have been from an English textbook.

    As society and technology progress, the web of concepts people interact with shifts and morphs. Obviously we all think about the internet and other new technological leaps now, and essentially no one ever thought of these specific things 40 years ago.

    Think about it this way. Lets just say there's some total amount of thoughts people have, let's call it x. 50 years ago, there were 3billion*x thoughts about the web of information then. Now, there are 7billion*x thoughts about the web of information now. So unless someone's gonna say that the 4billion*x extra thoughts covered literally zero new ground AND the new things people have been exposed to haven't changed the way people think, I don't see how anyone could argue that there haven't been an absurd amount of original thoughts in recent times.
