Retention and Creation

I have pondered your question: "Is learning even about retention, or is it more about creation?" for I dont know how long. I think that the earlier stages of learning are focused on retention and regurgitation and that as we approach higher levels of learning and development the goal shifts to creation. But I wonder, can retention deter or hinder creation?  I can imagine that the constant feeding of information and the rate at which one can retain it affects their ability or even their desire to create.
