Creative process, instead, is just as rigorous as it is natural and spontaneous, but just as natural and spontaneous it is, it is random, uncontrollable, convulsive like a stream in torrents or a river in flood. Put it this way, when everything is right, when everything is in place, what will stop a tree or a plant from flowering, from bearing fruit. The mother process of evolution itself incorporates in its running a certain amount of mutability, allowing new species and kinds to emerge from the ones existing, allowing life to diversify and older and less competitive natural structures to fade out.
The fact is any normal living, experiencing, and thinking involves certain amount of creativity. It is just that when the strands of creativity, in a mind for instance, are relatively weak creative responses become stifled and suppressed and logical thought and behaviour takes over. We may not all be creative, but we all have imagination, that to show us what cannot be seen with eyes or felt with touch. We all desire and dream, we have our weird and wonderful aims and ambitions. We all feel fears and consternation about possibilities of our actions, and have our hopes and good expectations for the efforts we make.
All these processes are natural, free, always there, but not always all that visible, conclusive or effective as is our ability to think, feel and act logically. This is why creative process however rigorous and impulsive in nature remains delicate, highly sensitive to touch, subtly fleeting through the mind, like a butterfly, evanescent like a dew drop in the light of the sun, there nevertheless always, catch it if you can, touch it feel it if you dare!
