Moments of Insight

Part of the Palgrave Studies in Creativity and Culture book series (PASCC)


No, life is not always steady and predictable. We can become increasingly sensitive to a world of creative tipping points. Included are, from Chaos Theory, the “Butterfly Effects” of our lives. Creative insight itself is likely one of these. With some of the background flickers of our days, we may not even notice. Others can be larger, a rare one momentous, shifting lives, even changing worlds. A vignette provides an example of the latter. Like a martial artist, the creator can work with this flux, sensing energies and balance, at times to tweak, advance, divert, or even to transform events.
