Remember when we said this was getting scary? Well it’s about to get scarier.
Most creative solutions are actually improvements on previous problems that have been solved and those solutions have joined the building blocks of flat reality. When we improve upon an existing concept we are more than likely launching from an existing point of progress. We multiply the blocks of knowledge, problem solving, and improvement more and more with every step. The steps may be small and they definitely grow smaller the more problems you solve.
Because we are man and we are flawed we know there is no final solution to our problems. In fact the more we improve the more humbling the reminder of how inadequate we are. Which is why if you remember at the very beginning of this I said it was ironic that creativity actually builds downwards. Those with a different worldview will disagree with me. That’s OK. If you agree with what I’ve said so far, trust me as we go forward. We build on the foundation that is reality, then we crawl underneath and see how it works, then we combine it and make something new. This new block gets placed lower than the one before it cause it can't go on top. That's flat reality where there is no understanding, just face value. Your creative idea is built on the understanding beneath the first block.
