Is creativity humanistic or scientific?
Heart and mind, heaven and earth are often set against each other, as if they were antithetical.
This is not the case, because they are complementary – without one of them, the other does not exist.
The humanistic world, which encompasses the evolution of man’s ideals and tensions, and the scientific world, which should provide answers and find solutions, are considered distant and separate.
With his professional and human experiences, Jobs marked a gap between this conception of the world and a fuller, more corageous, alternative and enriching one.
Creativity born from this mixture is incomparable, it has within it stimuli and perspectives, it works on many levels and is able to understand the most diverse registers: it embraces the world.
How will we face the new if we don’t know our history?
The roots of the past make the tree of the future grow.
And here we are with the roots planted in our homes, today we are more similar to the plant kingdom than to the animal kingdom.
We don’t move but we communicate and we are all super-connected thanks to the genius of Jobs.
This is a good thing – if we keep our brains switched on – because we rediscover time, the value of being close to those we love and above all we can think; activities that we were in danger of losing.
Let us learn from plants, which is what allowed us to live on this planet.
Firm but connected.
Thanks Steve, you have contributed a lot to the connection.
Thank you humanity, if you understand the value of the connection between our brains, to improve.
This is how we like to think and act: curious and willing to welcome and give back, a little hungry and a little foolish, as suggested by this great character.
