* I see creativity as a general power, one that can be applied to any field of interest or love, from the most 'technical' and 'scientific' to the most 'artistic'. Any child knows this: just watch how they play, naturally flowing and dancing from one activity to another... Only later does society impose categories, criticisms and restrictions to this natural love and enthusiasm.

That freedom is available to any of us, either as a recovered power or a present reality. It is a source of problem-solving, joy, and the end of boredom. Our only real limitations are the ones nature provides, which are much less than you might imagine... bodies, skills and knowledge are mere tools, instruments, as well as the clay of creation.
