Created... Already

Creativity is putting your imagination to work, and it's produced the most extraordinary results in human culture.

Ken Robinson


Have you already accomplished the completion of a Creative Process? You've had your Eureka moment and was able to follow it through to the end?

 

Eureka moment story from Scientific American:

... the local tyrant contracts the ancient Greek polymath Archimedes to detect fraud in the manufacture of a golden crown. Said tyrant, name of Hiero, suspects his goldsmith of leaving out some measure of gold and replacing it with silver in a wreath dedicated to the gods.

Archimedes accepts the challenge and, during a subsequent trip to the public baths, realizes that the more his body sinks into the water, the more water is displaced--making the displaced water an exact measure of his volume.

Because gold weighs more than silver, he reasons that a crown mixed with silver would have to be bulkier to reach the same weight as one composed only of gold; therefore it would displace more water than its pure gold counterpart.

Realizing he has hit upon a solution, the young Greek math whiz leaps out of the bath and rushes home naked crying "Eureka! Eureka!" Or, translated: "I've found it! I've found it!"


 

My cook has been through many creative processes with his perfecting of pizza pie.

I always enjoy the Eureka!'s and implementation stages!

But we also benefited from her other creative creative processes at the Reception we had for her art show at the Courthouse Gallery!
