“Genuine creativity will always involve individual reflection…. From the point of view of consciousness, the creativity appears to arise ex nihilo [out of nothing].
… Creativity ministers to the benefit of society through the solutions of a wide variety of problems, …. But creativity also ministers to the good of the individual creative person as well, by filling that gap, that “nothing” within his own being.”
Brewster Ghiselin
