The creation of anything worthwhile rests on a bedrock of belief.
What we believe about anything, creativity included, varies from person to person but the one conviction that all conscious creators share is that making meaning is important.
The need to make meaning is what distinguishes humans from all the other lifeforms on the planet. Artists do it through symbols, sound and story, rationalists through paradigms, explanations and models.
All conscious creators believe in making life meaningful — for ourselves, firstly, as creators and for those our creations touch.
We mean what we make and make what we mean.
