What is creativity to you?

Lifestyle, Neuroscience, Psychology, Science

When you hear the word “creativity”, what is the first thought that comes to your mind? Is it thinking differently? Or is it creating something brand new that the world has never seen before? Well, there is a tiny bit of truth in both questions.

Each individual possesses creativity, and — you may have noticed yourself — it helps us in every aspect of our lives. It can be anything from cooking, drawing, dancing with different moves (in case you’ve got bored with the old ones),  or even decision-making about buying a new car (should I get a black one or a white one?), or clothes since you’ve probably noticed that it got worn out or looks shabby.

Creativity is not only working on special projects at work that require you to quit spending time with family or watch sports games on TV (especially during NBA season it’s difficult to do anything else but be glued to TV, believe me). It is opening your mind to doing things differently, or THINK differently. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to compare yourself to others. It only means you compare yourself to the old self that wasn’t the person you are today.

Social-Media-e1518208936600.pngIn 2018 social media is part of everyone who has access to the Internet. Being part of social community allows us to spread the word to each other about ourselves, or about what happens beyond our personal lives. We also like hearing rumors related to superstars and then change the plot of what has really happened to, for example, Lindsey Lohan on a Friday night at one of the bars in LA. Different people tell different stories (Lindsey knows her story better, I’m sure). This story-telling has already been embedded into our worldview, and we don’t seem to want to change any of that. Why? Because every time we read or watch news, it becomes novelty and will always remain so as long as news reporters or writers keep pushing on themselves to give everyone something to talk about in a new, creative way.

There is a great quote that describes this concept: “Many men, many minds” — it means every human being interprets the world from their perspective, and it will never be the same. We can agree on multiple aspects, but we all see them just like one sees a half-full glass and another person looks at a half-empty glass placed on a table.

Unfortunately, creativity is not supported enough nowadays. Many parents think that if their kids do not start building rockets or doing extraordinary things at the age of 3, they’re not a future Einstein and thus can go easy on schooling. If only those parents knew how crucial their contribution would be when their children were within the age range of 3-5 years. It has been scientifically proven that a 5-year-old can process information at the speed that he will never reach again in his life after he becomes older as the ability to process information gradually decreases with age (if not supported or trained in the course of years, it can lead to dementia or Alzheimer’s). At that age a child memorizes much-much better (no wonder a kid can remember an episode when you took a candy from him when he was just 4 or 5 y.o.). Therefore, parents and already grown-ups need to take a better look at their children’s abilities and their own as well! These abilities can be improved and, in the long run, you may even hear “thank you” from you kid or your future self.

People also believe it’s a way to perceive new relationships or make new connections. Is it the right way to look at creativity? Again, this is a controversial belief and cannot be pointed out as wrong whichever way you look at it. We will have to accept each other’s opinions for the sake of the society.

On the other hand, this human ability is important on many levels and is good resource in, e.g., economic development or can be of a tremendous help in educational environment. It must be encouraged in every individual, and once the seeds of creativity have been planted, one day the harvest will become abundant.

How long has it been since the project called “Teleportation” was launched?

teleportation-portals

Until 1993, Teleportation seemed beyond real whereas that year scientists started working hard to prove that it is actually possible to time travel. Quantum mechanics incude state, energy and particle teleportation. This project does not sound easy and requires intelligent minds to bring the idea of time traveling to life.

What does Teleportation mean?

The term Teleportation means movement of an object from one place to another without physically traversing in distance. It was originally invented by an American writer Charles Fort in 1931, who, besides the writing career, was interested in research and specialized in anomalous phenomena. Charles Fort thought that Teleportation was somehow connected with dispappearances and appearances of anomalies. This made a great push to generating new ideas regarding time traveling.

What do we know about Teleportation today?

Recently, scientists have made a breakthrough sending a photon from Earth to the satellite located 500 kilometers above in space. The two photons were formed in the same environment at the same time. They had similar content which made them easily correlate with each other. Researchers are not able to physically send objects to space yet, but they ensure us that they can change the information content of one photon (on Earth) and send it to another one (received by the satellite in space) which will involve no physical movement in distance. This is the first step into the biggest discovery a human being could only think of.

According to the Chinese team, previous experiments on sending photons farther than 100 kilometers in distance failed, because of the photon loss in optical fibers or terrestrial free-space channels.

The team claims that they have reached the number 911 of successful cases of sending millions of photons to space through a vacuum which should enlarge the distance and reduce the amount of interference from the atmosphere.

In a way, all this sounds incredible and promising to the mere people like me, but if I’m still alive by the time time traveling becomes possible, I guess everybody will live in the time they find more fascinating.

When I was a kid I used to watch series “Quantum Leap”. I would find each episode intriguing and unique, because it had started even before the Teleportation theory became trending and it was still difficult to explain what Teleportation was all about.

Isn’t it amazing how scientists find ways to reveil secrets of such phenomena? I’m sure it has something to do with the Bermuda Triangle, too, which is another topic to discuss. With the help of new technology and brilliant minds that the Earth carries, we will find out soon about the fastest way to look into our past and future. Don’t get me wrong, but I really want to know if dinosaurs existed!
