A small child doesn't have a concept or an idea, but he is much more creative then any mature human. I was talking about the power of intuition in creation, not reason. Only with reason, the act creation is not possible becouse you are using what you know; you must forget all you know, you must step into the unknown, to risk everything in order to create (creating = making something really new, with no anchors in the past, in what you know and understand). You need reason in order to express the result of the act of creation... the act of creation itself is beyond reason... something beyond reason strucked Beethoven before writing the nineth symphony... we don't know what becouse knowing implies reason and what happened is above reason... then Beethoven used his brain and ideas and concepts only to materialize what he feeled, but that wasn't the real act of creation... it was only a great tecknique. John Cage stopped gest before materialising the act of creation.... he felt a lot and he didn't do nothing..... and by doing this he pointed on the real act of creation, on the process of creation for the first time in the history of music. A lot to say... I don't wanna get into details becouse I'm not fluent in english and I struggle too much to express myself... I don't wanna loose the essence on the way.
That state does not exist and never can. Every experience you have influences you. They don't define you necessarily but they do absolutely effect you and they are impossible to get rid of.
