The Brain: Creativity’s Hiding Place

I first became aware of Amy Tan’s work through the movie Joy Luck Club. In this TED.com video Amy Tan attempts to answer the question “Where does Creativity Hide?” and I think she answers the question very well. Creativity lies in surrendering your viewpoint and adopting another to find the void of uncertainty that resides there and discovering a new incomplete truth that fills it. The viewpoint, the void and what fills it are obvious all along.
