Bridging the Gap (Part 1)
“How do we connect infinite creativity with finite humanity?”
I was at chinese restaurant with my friend, and former professor, Rick Rhoads having a discussion about the creative nature of humanity, when he looked into my eyes and posed the question above. I was taken back, and speech less.
“I don’t know?” I replied
He looked at me with all seriousness, “Well, I think you should write a book answering this question, and then show me what you come up with. I’d really like to hear your thoughts on this.”
Since that day, back in February, I’ve had a this question sitting on my desk, written on a ripped off corner a zodiac placemat, and I’ve been unable to answer it.
What is the connection point? How do we as finite creatures embrace such infinite ideas, thoughts and creativity? How do we engage our unlimited creative nature without our finite bodies wearing us down? What is the bridge between the two?
I have some unformulated ideas on this, but I simply want to pose the question first to you, and then maybe, just maybe I’ll try to answer it myself.
