Week 1 Thoughts - Creativity and Finding Common Ground

KT's picture

Only one week in and a garden of new thoughts are germinating already!  One of the paths I’m curious about is the role of evolution in determining what is POPULAR (the areas where we find agreement) in terms of literature or music or art etc.   We discussed how our diverse perspectives influence how we approach the summaries of our observations of life, where is that place where we come together? Why do we agree? How do we get there? How does “selection” work when it’s a matter of creativity as opposed to literal survival? Given that the universe is so large and constantly expanding, it would follow that there are infinite possibilities in terms of creativity. Why don’t we enjoy and pursue them all equally?
