ideas a high-performance

Here in this article facts and figures from philosophy, science and research are brought together. In the end, at best, you can understand how we humans find an idea. Ultimately, it answers the question to yourself, where did the last idea come from?


First, for anyone who isn't creative or thinks they aren't creative, being creative and becoming creative is a process that can be learned. You just have to ask yourself what and in which area you want to train your hidden creative skills.


The secret power lies dormant in each of us, we just don't have enough time to train it.

Here are a few examples of how we let our "mind" get creative: Painting, Drawing, Photography, Theater, Acting, Writing, Screenwriting, Directing, Game Developer, Writer, Magician, Physicist, New Crafts, Finding New Recipes in the Kitchen , New creations, image editing, videography, science and and and…


I am sure there are several dozen more on the list, at a later point in time I will make a list at the end where, according to the German and international view, being “creative” is the focus of events.


No matter which area you choose, you have to deal with the basic techniques of a creative activity and try to learn them. Literature, lectures, videos on YouTube can be a start.

So unless you were born with one of the talents discovered early, you can help your creativity at any time.


Once you have learned the basic technique, it is about thinking outside the box. This process is more tedious for one than for the other. Thinking outside the box also means being the first to open a door that, if possible, no one else has opened before. If you do research on current art and the creativity on the market associated with it, you can get an idea of what is already out there. You will also find that certain areas of creativity are in high demand. Whether in the wild, for fun during execution or for financial reasons. That depends on what you decide on in the course of finding a creativity.


If you don't do any extensive research to get an overview of the creative market, then just get started. The basic technique is known. So after you've created a handful or a dozen works, that's already a success.

So if you only start researching later, you will see whether the works and the style you adopted in the practice phase already exist or whether you can assign them to a specific direction. Both directions are good, my recommendation would be to start with something without research. The "creativity" is a constantly changing state with a constant base. If you have produced 5 or 12 creative things, or none at all, then the research and search for inspiration often begins, i.e. ideas, then we are right on the threshold of “creative idea development”. Inspiration will guide you. Inspiration from others is a good tool to discover for yourself a niche or part of something that the artist or creative hasn't built into their work. Sometimes conversation can be the source of your next project, the source of your inspiration. But even a walk brings the mind into an active state for many. Here, then, is the vehicle for creating New Ideas to be “inspired” by others through your environment. Even a small sequence in a YouTube video can move a creative to something new. Let's break it down in a few sentences like this. You make an observation and analyze the work of art, what interests you. You will see something that you particularly like. It doesn't even have to be a work of art, something that you have looked at for a long time. In your environment, something of natural origin e.g. This can be the flower in the background of a picture, or the horse in the distance on a steppe between two snow-capped mountains in a photograph. You perceive these two things as beautiful or interesting, so you devote your attention to the moment and will possibly incorporate these two elements into your next project. A little tip, quickly photograph the object that you find beautiful. This is where the chaff separates from the Spree for the first time. Do you only copy what you see, i.e. copy the snapshot that has already been painted or photographed by someone else, or do you draw a seen snapshot in 1:1 (one to one). Then you really have a good photographic memory. Be happy. But if you change the product so well or beautifully, then this is your way to your own style. You get better when you do something often. So you have these two beautiful things in mind. Now you have to “let your creative streak turn to gold”. It is not bad or unusual if at the beginning many nuances of a painting show many similarities to the original. Remember you're still in the stadium, learned basic techniques and created 5-12 things.

“Creativity is always changing”. It can therefore happen that a day later you will discard one style and discover another. So where we are at point two. First you make “observations” then you discover something. Discovery is the leap to the next level of creative activity. Discovery means that you have seen something that you had not noticed before, or you have recognized a connection during longer analysis and combination that will help you in your creative work in the future. Discovering can also be a personal “aha” moment in the creative process. You get better at what you do, you found a way to do something better or easier. Discovering can also mean not just standing in front of the tree, but also looking behind the tree. Discovering also means being curious, going deep into detail, makes you more accurate, different, more precise and you gain more knowledge. Imagine the plane of a photograph, we look at it and only see the whole photo in 2D, when we look at it from above we speak of 2D. If you turn the photo up or down, there is no space behind it, just 2D. But with a photo program you can open a door where you suddenly see that there are many techniques behind a normal photo. Every photo contains a huge amount of hidden information. Layer by layer emerges. A cluster of bits bites and pixels, the picture elements. You can turn one photo into a thousand new ones if you have the time, inclination, and purpose. With your curiosity, you delve deep into the subject matter of a product. Which brings you to points three and four. You have to learn to look at your future work of art from several perspectives. What could that be? Point four , learn as much background knowledge about the item you want to create or you are contemplating. This knowledge can later enable you to build bridges, it is the small threads and paths that can be decisive in creative work. What materials is it made of? What is the story behind the item? Where are weaknesses, what does the wood or the apple not like? What was the manufacturing process like if it didn't come from nature? Even looking into the chain of molecules can lead to something new in the ongoing creation of your creative activity. The perspectives help you to better understand the perspectives, if you want to create an effect with your product, then you have to understand and study the perspectives of others.

Ultimately, you will never be able to vote for everyone positively, which is rarely the goal of "creative activity". What you do has to please you and bring you joy. So if you want to use your product to underpin a grievance in society, then there are ways and means to achieve this. Easiest solution. Take a sign and write it on it, have your picture taken and post it on social media. There will be a reaction, but the range is not yet clear. Also, it's not clear if your shield will trigger the desired response. This brings us to point 6. Impact is a beautiful element in a “creative” activity. You get your confirmation when the reaction was as you imagined. Every activity is a kind of investment. You needed and used up time, strength, concentration and patience. For some it is enough if a product leads to a new dialogue among the viewers. However, not every creative activity is always focused on an effect. It's up to you.


Now we have briefly highlighted the way to a creative activity and individual elements that can and should facilitate the process of “creative” activity and learning about it.


Now we're boarding the rocket of the wildest "ideas" of the 21st century. Sounds good, right? Of course we don't. So why is something new constantly emerging in us or around us? Nature shows it best, e.g. the transition from light to dark. In the evening, or the transition from dark night to dawn. You somehow don't get it. So it is in the animal world, one day the explorers, explorers and scientists marched into the jungle and they came back with the realization that every time we came back we discovered new species of animals, insects and plants. But so far it has not been possible to experience exactly this moment of creation. As if nature and its mechanisms of "renewal" want to remain hidden in their diversity. The “idea” is to be equated. Only today do we have the means at our disposal to reconstruct the moment according to a new idea that has never existed before. Much more important is the moment and the processes that happened before. Why is an idea actually so valuable for us? Quite simply, with an idea it is like the number Pi 3.14, which accompanies us all into eternal infinity. Every new idea Guarantees that we won't die of boredom. Among other things. The idea secures our existence. Although the creative industry sells us, an idea has no financial value, only when it is implemented. So ideas that could change the world have no value. This is an interesting and above all cost-effective perspective.


Questioning the meaning opens new doors!


Ideas change our everyday life, our environment, our way of thinking and our perspective, the way we talk, our vocabulary, how we communicate with the outside world, both on a small and large scale. Mobility answers. The areas written down in books are almost limitless. With every new idea, no matter how small, we set a whole chain of gears in motion from which new ideas and mechanisms crystallize. You are welcome to think about it and look for examples.

My research on the moment an idea was born can be partly answered like this. Certain areas of the brain are particularly active during a creative activity, which could be observed thanks to the latest technology. Neuroscientists say today. It's a kind of firework in the head, not the work process as such, but rather the activity that takes place in the mind. Many mathematical processes take place in the neural network. Our mind works like a computer, so we would like to build a computer that is in no way inferior to our complexity as a human being. The large amount of information that is available in our neural network can be called up in a fraction of a second, a kind of data superhighway to get an idea. Analysis, comparison and new arrangement of the stored information take place. The different areas communicate with each other. A team of Watson and Sherlock Holmes become active by playing through an unspecified set of combinations of possibilities. The result is a new result. At the same time, this is the solution. It's almost like solving a new formula in mathematics every time, just on a different *level.

You see 1 +1 and are of the opinion that something is missing in between. Then you just have to search long enough for it.

The stumbling block that causes others to fall does not just have to be repaired. They must also be repaired in such a way that the stone does not sink or rise again. One thing is just doing it as it was, the next step builds the bridge and encourages you to think further. There are two different forms of creativity that play a role. So it's not always enough to do what's in the book or instructions if it doesn't last long enough. This small feature is the key where millions of people in development are always looking for an improvement in durability and efficiency. The only difference here is that it is not a completely new product. Creating something completely new, e.g. the motor or the solar collector, is a supreme discipline.

Of course we go even further and question the ideas on a spiritual level. God also has a word to say here, according to many in whom religion is the center. On the other hand, there are cultures that say every “idea” comes from nature. Mother Earth is our source of inspiration. But that was not all, there are also voices from different areas who firmly believe that every “idea” comes about through the connection with the cosmos. Each of these topics gets its own post at times. As you can see, nowadays and in times of tolerance, not everything can be explained with a simple answer. Scientifically, the "idea" is a combination of many events occurring in a moment and yielding a New Result. There are still ghosts, esoteric and pseudoscientific areas, but many of the stories serve metaphysical themes. Everything that is not measurable and goes beyond the limits of physics cannot be ruled out, but is not relevant for most people. Also, there is no room yet to explore. Only testimonies from individuals or small groups can reflect experiences here. Find out for yourself what you think is the most plausible about it. Everyone can tell a lot, but everyone cannot be right. The stage of science is full of these moments.


Unless we live e.g. in a multi universe, see various theories about our universe and the origin of it! Our thoughts can be present everywhere at the same time in all the universes, see the theory of "quantum mechanics", why should only two particles exist at the same time in two places, why not thoughts? "ideas". The path of parallel communication would be created, and the path of understanding. So it would be quite possible that in another universe the driving force of the idea actually comes from ghosts, or there are beings who tell us about their ideas. Spookie, creepy? Well, artificial intelligence that can create new ideas would be realistic. But since this is at home in a network of information, the only way to communicate it to people is to do so.

No, the space that can be created through imagination is limitless. Incidentally, digressing is also part of the creative process. But as soon as such theories are opened up, new questions arise and one would initiate endless dialogues.


In daily use and when searching for new ideas, the following techniques have proven to be particularly successful. If you see a problem, then this is the moment when you can use all your knowledge and all the experiences and insights you have ever gained. Ultimately, everyone can start their own check and diagnosis program in the process of solving the problem.


In the team, these uncertain forces are multiplied by 5. So it speeds up finding a solution. The creative process picks up speed, but can also lead to a dead end. In addition, one can contact the international community today to ask further questions or apply possible solutions to the problem from the outside. If this is not effective either, then you can also use professors, academics, mathematicians, scientists, physicists, biologists,

Call chemists, creatives and all other drummers together. If that didn't give us the solution we wanted and add another element to the creative process, then you'd have to get support from a data center. Hey, what could be nicer than just overdoing it. It's enough if you get the crack in the door opened to something new. That's creative... that would be very creative. If you consider how quickly “ideas” can be sent around the world today, you are surprised that not all problems have been satisfactorily solved. Okay, here it often fails because of financial means and not because of feasibility. So are we not working well enough together? Now, progress is the Holy Grail, isn't it? In sum, you always hear and read the word coincidence and luck. Both can be considered but not ruled out. Coincidence and luck can be explained briefly or one fills volumes with it.


Hopefully you will soon have the experience of creating something new, try creating the moment after and reconstructing the moment before yourself, as described above.


It is a special kind of event.
