Imagine you can choose your own superpower from one of these three: flying, invisibility, or being creative. You’d be the only person in the world with that superpower. Which one do you choose? Flying is not so useful without other superpowers. Invisibility is okay for being naughty or for a little fun but not good for much else. But if you were the only person who could create… you’d be the most powerful person on Earth.
When you have this superpower you can see the world from a unique viewpoint which is exclusive to you and not the viewpoint of someone else. This helps protect you from the mistakes and untruths of others as well as your own ignorance.
More and more of our society is centered on pictures and images, which is a beautiful thing. But some of the most important parts of life are not visible in pictures: ideas, insights, logic, reason, mathematics, intelligence. These can’t be drawn, photographed, or pictured. They have to be interpreted only by you, arranged in an orderly string, and can only be understood by those who have acquired the superpower of creativity.
This superpower will always be with you; it will never leave you. But like all superpowers, it increases the more you use it. As we invent new ways to create, its value and power will expand and deepen. At any time, creativity beats any other superpower you can name.
