I have no problem sharing with all who will listen that creativity is a central feature to our own human experience since we all at some point in our lives, have or will have, an experience involving creativity. Whether he or she is a humble member of the audience, or in rare cases, the creative agent that produces a novel product, the very nature of novelty holds that it is not at all predictable, a given fact accepted by most. However it should be noted that the unpredictability of novelty does not negate the importance of honing a skill set that creates the best possible conditions for novelty and originality to emerge.
