I agree. Creativity might not have anything to do with logic. It's like we see
a "whole picture" and then use logic to dissect, verify, etc. Logic and reason,
however, often has memes associated with it like "paperwork" or other boring
bureaucratic things. This might not be the whole picture. A couple of people
brought up Neo-Tech which associates reason with memes like "controlling
existence" or "creating new universes".
Has anyone ever heard of Dr. Michael Hewitt-Gleeson's School of Thinking? He
claims that logic is only one kind of "software" program which has its place as
well as its limitations. He has a pretty cool web site.
