There is no such thing as creativity

Creative thinking, invention, innovation etc. are not what you may think. The human mind cannot actually create an idea from scratch. In order to "create" you must combine or alter known concepts and elements. Human "creativity" works by making connections between things which are impressed upon the brain through our senses, in other words the brain needs input before it can make new neural connections and form ideas. Thought works through pattern recognition, you cannot create a new idea in a literal sense because all ideas come from external input.

You misunderstand what the term creativity means and as usual substitute your own definition to suit your flawed narrative ,

creativity

ˌkriːeɪˈtɪvɪti/Submit

noun

the use of imagination or original ideas to create something; inventiveness.

"firms are keen to encourage creativity"

synonyms: inventiveness, imagination, imaginativeness, innovation, innovativeness, originality, individuality;

There are no original ideas because all ideas are derived from other ideas or information. Name an "original idea" that is not contingent upon other ideas and information which must be connected or altered to create the new idea.

Ah so you’re switching from creativity to original now Nom , your “ original “ idea on the subject I’ve just corrected for you , you’re welcome .

I’m afraid you lose again as as your failure to now understand the term original regarding creativity is again flawed .....let me help ....

Original

created personally by a particular artist, writer, musician, etc.; not a copy.

"original Rembrandts"

synonyms: authentic, genuine, actual, real, true, pukka, bona fide, veritable, not copied, archetypal, prototypical, master;

Have another go and change the terms again if you wish

I agree with everything you said in the description--however, that is what creativity is, so I cannot agree with the motion in place.

Well yeah, that's what creativity/originality is. Putting things/ideas together in a way not previously thought of. You can create a new idea by putting things together in your mind just as an artist can create a new painting by putting paint on the canvas. Something can still be new even if its parts are old.

An author can create an entire universe, that is nothing like our own. The foreigner sequence is a good example. It involves a race of aliens who are genetically wired to think differently. Their language has no word for love, but 17 different words for hate. Love is a foreign concept to them because they have a herd mentality. Rally to the leader, is what they know.

Can you show me a single example of a human creating something from scratch without combining or altering things that come from outside of themselves?
