My e-book: Collection of Creative Ideas

My e-book: Collection of Creative Ideas


Creativity is like scattered light going in different directions first to explore and observe in search of new ideas. Like scattered light those ideas on their own might be of little value. However; a creative idea emerges that make two strange and unrelated ideas become the seeds for a new idea. It is like marrying two different and distant plants from different cultures to produce new fruits with different tastes.

Creativity is like marrying two different and distant plants from different cultures to produce new fruits with different tastes.
Ali Anani, PhD

I published recently few mini-posts on hairy plants and what ideas they may possibly illuminate the mind with. The ideas started small, but then grew bigger and bigger. Fresh new insights appeared, new possibilities surfaced out and creative ideas shined. The unfamiliar became familiar, the lost thoughts became focused and the unlikely became likely.

Reading each creativity post on its own is the scattered light for the reader. This e-book is an attempt to focus the light of ideas under one cover. I hope this effort would enlighten at least few readers to produce more creative ideas of their own.

Creativity is like time with future with unknown boundaries. The past is the time gone. The present is the transient moment. But for how long the future shall extend nobody knows or shall know. It is undefined system. So is creativity. It has a boundless future because it keeps growing and its boundaries keep expanding and opening new possibilities for even more expanded future. Creativity is a system with unknown boundaries.

The book doesnโ€™t limit itself to hairy ideas and it covers few other issues.

Where do creative ideas come from or originate? Again, creativity is boundless with an ever increasing potential. The more creative ideas we generate, the more possibilities we have to generate more creative ideas.

I find no road map to creativity for as we generate new ideas we also change the landscape of creativity. It is like trying to chase a shadow to have a โ€œcreativity road-mapโ€.
Ali Anani, PhD
Creativity and possibilities feedback on each other and they know but expanding boundaries and opportunities.
Ali Anani, PhD

Having no road map is filled with uncertainty.

ยท It is a random walk.

ยท It is risky. It is challenging.

ยท It is walking in the darkness.

All of a sudden a starry idea emerges from nowhere with the light of possibilities that were a remote possibility. What seemed to be a complex problem may not be as one creative idea found a simple solution that surprised us why we didnโ€™t think of it before.

I hope this e-book would act as a minor source for new ideas.

#30
Fay Vietmeier I knew you would not agree and I expected this comment from you my dear partner. I meant (with the chemical ,mind operating inside) that when oxygen and hydrogen (two gases) they produce water, which is quite different from the "authenticity"of both gases. So, what I meant our ideas react and these ideas may have very little to do with the original ideas.

Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee ... you are "you" ;~) and I am "me" ... two strange seeds are we ;~) ... bursting forth in creativity ;~) Not sure that I agree with this statement: "Strangely, the product of both of us isn't related to the authenticity of either of us.' I see "authenticity" (of both) as indeed related to the "product of both" Authenticity is a vital to outcomes ... vital to relationships even for bees ;~)

#28
Fay Vietmeier I am trying to find one or two words to reflect that we are two different seeds who produce creative ideas. Distant is space. Yes we are. Distant in spirit. I think we are just nest to each other. You. you are who you are and I am who I am Strangely, the product of both of us isn't related to the authenticity of either of us. Strange world that we live in. Who know what shall emerge tomorrow?

Fay Vietmeier Not only you read the book, but also found the time to mine the key points in it. Your modifications of some of them by adding words are fully acceptable. They make since . 13.

Will edit accordingly.

Fay Vietmeier My good poetic spirit- the secret is that I am engaged with what I do.That is all. You are a perfectionist my friend. Your posts are gully integrated and almost error-free. I am more of a good enough to publish person. I want to keep moving on. It is a matter of different styles. My friend- which comment you mean? I checked and I am the one who wrote comment #13

Fay Vietmeier My dear- I broke my eye glasses and I am now using an old one which I used few years back. I don't see my typing very clearly. This made me fail to correct what I stated before You mentioned that imagination is what we have to explore the wonders of this world. I may add here creativity doesn't only involve vivid imagination (such as the use of proper metaphors),, but it expands our limited world This is wrong. I meant not only expands our imagination, but also. Instead of typing does by error I typed doesn't. I am awfully sorry.

Dear Fay Vietmeier I thank you for your reshare. I do appreciate it. I learnt a lesson. It is there shall be always over-priced and under-priced stocks in the stock market. So, there shall be always over-evaluated posts and authors and under-evaluated posts and authors. I leaked one idea from my post of tomorrow. What I care mostly now is to throw the seeds. They might fall in a friendly soil and they may not. At least, I have done my duty. Again, I appreciate your sharing the post and your care to increase its reach.

#17
Fay Vietmeier My dear- you wrote: No moss will ever grow under your feet ;~) ... while you draw breath ;~) I can't imagine that you shall not write a post on this imaginative idea. How many times in our lives can we produce such an eloquent thought. If you do it shall be a landmark post. Believe me.

Dear Fay Vietmeier You are indeed a poetic spirit. Any author of a post has certain ides in her/his mind to communicate to the readers. Your comment did just this. It is amazing. I loved the example including you and I in writing together poems. Yes, are two different plants with different traits and cultures; yet our combination generated poetic science. This is interesting. You mentioned that imagination is what we have to explore the wonders of this world. I may add here creativity doesn't only involve vivid imagination (such as the use of proper metaphors),, but it expands our limited world. This is a theme of a post that I am drafting now with a metaphor from nature. I shall publish post to the one I am publishing tomorrow. T want to alert you to this post for one reason. This post has drained my imagination and writing it was a big challenge for me. I want to share the title now. It is: . Ideas Stock Markets- why authors and commentsโ€™ writers behave similarly? Not only the writing of this post was a serious challenge to me, but I may be criticised for writing it. I dwell on the readers to understand that is me and how I think. They have the right to agree or disagree. But it shall be different from any post I published. Great poets have great imagination and this is a trait that bring both of us abreast.

Zacharias \ud83d\udc1d Voulgaris More, if you finish writing a technical book and even before publishing it you start preparation of the next one. This is a higher level of antifragility . The author I am talking about is Zacharias \ud83d\udc1d Voulgaris

Don't worry about Ali. He's indestructible! :-) While other people have gone quiet during this difficult time, he wrote an ebook! If that's not antifragility & creativity, I don't know what is!

Your peace with yourself is admirable. Your words say so. With such a beautiful character you shall be a constant source of inspiration for others. I thank you for being here today and I consider your comment a second reward today. You know how the WPD Factor was born. You were an integral part of its formulation. With Wonderment, Pride and Passion I shall keep the Drive (WPPD) I say also thank you for your reshare of the post.

Dear Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I trust you and your family are staying safe. The present is a transient moment. But for how long the future shall extend nobody knows or shall know. It is an undefined system. So is creativity" I remember my first comment on Bebee on one of your posts " With so much love you craft your words and build a lovely castle for us, readers to get inside, get cozy and enjoy the knowledge of such simplicity thoroughly. Explained in a simple way." And this art of your storytelling and lighting a spark in the readers' mind is a WPD factor, your consist readers embrace. Thank you for consistently enlightening us. And I totally agree with John Rylance comment :)

John Rylance When a comment writer writes a comment such as yours and explains the reasoning why he is expressing with transparency then these comments become a light bulb for me to find better ways than the ones I am following now. Your comment is exemplary of what I mean. I trust you for you also criticize when necessary. You are credible and your comments always resonate with me. Are all comments the same? I dare say no. I explain this in detail in a post that I plan to publish tomorrow. The post has the title "Ideas Stock Markets- why authors and commentsโ€™ writers behave similarly?". A provocative title maybe, but I put lots of energy in its writing. I hope you enjoy the e-book as much as I enjoyed your comment.

What I like about your posts is they challenge me to think, about new ideas, and more importantly about my existing views. An alert active brain helps you keep healthy. I note your reference to the "present is a transient moment" It reminded me of this I read awhile ago, a response to the statement this photo was taken when I was younger. That any photo is of when someone was younger. A truism alongside we only take photos of what we want to remember. I'm currently working my way through the e-book, picking my way through hairy pearls you offer up.

Over a couple of years, what I have experienced I must admit that you are a person of high caliber and creativity. You know well from how to sketch themes and content and maintain the tempo to be responsive on othersโ€™ comments. You know how to put forth theories and tools of imagery to come up with brainier and novel ideas. And you show clearly the uses of innovation in the implementation of those ideas. Sometimes, I feel, how avidly you pen down inspirational and interesting content. All accolades to you Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee
