Living structures canalize energy flows so as to insure their internal coherence and linear expansion. Creativity means transversing existing canals, inventing new ways. Thus, it is natural that rigid structures, such as totalitarian political systems, fear artistic creation.

Creativity is a kind of chaos, it is the fact of life. Creativity is also the principal tool nomads use to adapt to new situations. Creativity arises naturally in conditions of changes and novelty. In a changing environment creation is permanent.

The construction of an identity is a creative, nonlinear process. It is a dialogue with one's physical and social environment; a multiple-ways, dynamic relationship.
