I believe you are more creative than you have ever thought.
Creativity is the activity of introducing solutions not known before.
As an example, I will call the different old knowledge equations i.e.
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 ——————– equation 1
A B C D E F G H… Z ——————-equation 2
IGBO ALPHABETS (having no X) —equation 3
GREEK ALPHABETS——————–equation 4
HEBREW ALPHABETS—————–equation 5.
Then with this old knowledge forming the 5 equations he/she decides to make new combinations like
Now let me ask you: have you seen the number you knew since primary school, the English alphabets, my Igbo language, and the Hebrew and Greek languages combined in such a way before? No.
Furthermore, this person going on with this form of creativity may decide that this will solve a peculiar problem or be introduced as something people will be willing to pay for. So, he/she makes all possible combinations of the 5 equations, solves them, stores them and with the aid/knowledge of any programming language writes new programmes or develops an application or software that he/she can introduce to the world. And when that is done the world celebrates him/her as being creative and bringing to us a fresh idea or invention.
Meanwhile, all he/she ever did was to combine very old thoughts and knowledge, associating them with the aid of possibility/responsibility reasoning (a mindset open to receiving and birthing solutions, having believed it is possible) to introduce his/her new creation.
Personally, I love securing my ideas, especially my thoughts and writings which I do not want people to see at the moment. And I discovered I could easily forget things (before now). So, as I kept working on my weakness (being better now) I simply developed a system of writing in codes readable only by me. Not even a computer can understand my secrets. Even if you pick them up from my table and study them for 12 years. I use it alone, and I called it mykenecode. This is an example of my secret writings:
?7’ ‘’/<> .’5 _9#8 7.4 9)
‘9’1’ 41? ‘. -9: ‘)e: ?., -5(? 7 (51# :1’)).’)
Translation: best known to me.
I simply associated old knowledge and introduced to myself a way of avoiding a possible problem that could be caused by a weakness. And it paid off for me.
I’ll give another example using one of my areas of strength. All my life I have known the words child, proponent, right, survive, saying, that is, skeletal (from my biology), infection (from school too), killing (common), hungry (from childhood), passionate, urgency, hoping, love (from home and church), helping hand, and so on. But one day my heart was moved towards suffering children all around us, especially in warring nations, as shown on television and the internet.
So, from my heart and my head I began to associate words and concepts that convey the need of these children for urgent help from lovers, from the standpoint of an advocate who is seeking the support of others for them. And I wrote a song for that purpose:
