Has mankind’s creativity stalled out?


We need a creative “jumpstart.” The recent edition of Science News suggests the human brain is capable of “refinding” its childish thirst for new paths. There is no anatomical reason for humanity to reach a creative plateau and simply stall out. There is certainly no excuse for a society to hit a creative peak and settle quietly into an apathetic decline.

We really don’t have to bemoan the fact “they don’t make it like they used to.” We have the opportunity to make it better than it ever was.
