Shamans of creativity
In order to be able to participate in the creativity and the expected blessing of economic success through innovative superiority, the believer strives for professional support in order to overcome the supposed personal “uncreativity”.
The adept finds this support among professional shamans of creativity, a kind of “priestly caste”, if you will, that this cult has produced.
The intensity of the rituals is important
As we know from other religions, these shamans exert a great authority and are less measured by the success of their actions than by the intensity of their rituals.
It was thus observed that deserved decision-makers with serious faces and an unwavering firm commitment to the highest performance go into the hands of high priests of creativity.
Creativity Techniques - Faith Moves Mountains?
They willingly undergo rituals with terrifying names such as "brainstorming" and "lineups" and can be systematically robbed of their minds with "headstand" - and "negative methods" - for a considerable fee, of course. As is well known, faith moves mountains ...
Rituals create team spirit, are impressive, sometimes effective, and above all reassuring - from toddlers to the supervisory board. But does this way lead to more creativity? Or even creativity?
Efficient creativity according to plan
Efficient creativity according to plan within a given time window - with results, of course - is as ridiculous as an operational analysis during a carnival evening.
You can not learn creativity like yoga, golf or business English - creativity is innate and is used by everyone daily. It is an integral part of our thinking and serves to come up with new solutions - solutions that we can neither draw from our habit nor from our wealth of experience.
Everyone is creative!
This takes place daily, on a large and a small scale. Whether it's making plans, lending a nickname, or inventing a credible excuse. Even when maneuvering in a crowd, where you avoid collisions step by step without any right of way.
Creativity is part of the standard equipment of the human genus - anyone can develop it and implant it into their professional lives. Like everything else, you can train and optimize your creativity. You can learn to pay attention to your perceptions.
The creativity of selling things to people they do not need, such as creativity
You can practice associating, that is, on the premise of "what if ..." to reconnect information. And you can train how to deal with inner images and develop your pictorial thinking. Maybe not without help, but certainly without hocus-pocus.
Once you have perfected your creativity, the world is open to you. It is well known that people are selling things that they do not need. But it is a remarkable genius empire, and it is the greatest creativity to sell people things that they themselves have in abundance. For example creativity.
The Mystery Chefetage
After courageous expedition teams have pushed themselves into the last corners of Africa, one might think that the cultures and religions of this planet are now being explored nationwide. Far from it - our executive floors still offer all kinds of undiscovered. Practically on our own doorstep, in the heart of our big cities, amazing new cults have evolved.
A particularly fertile breeding ground for all kinds of cults was found in the isolated, sparsely populated and generally inaccessible urban heights, popularly called Chefetagen.
There, researchers have recently encountered some rituals in connection with a cult that has been practiced in secret, apparently coexisting with the prevalent and widespread belief in the trinity of logic, yield, and shareholder value.
It is striking that the prescribed are only practiced behind closed doors, but the residents of the executive floors, if they are successful, have made a public commitment to it. We are talking about a so-called “creativity”.
The mantra of the ingenious ideas
The followers of this cult believe in the creation of a - not specified - "new" and live in the conviction that this creativity rains ingenious ideas and innovative products like manna from the sky.
As is customary in beliefs, the disciples of this cult love to boast about their creative actions without further defining the subject of their worship. Instead of definitions, there are only a number of myths that reflect the cornerstones of their beliefs and are considered fundamental dogmas.
Enlightened by the Holy Spirit of Creativity?
One of these myths - presumably a particularly fundamental myth - says that the Holy Spirit of Creativity can be found in the believer's right brain and can be activated and invoked there.
To his incantation, certain rituals, which are intended to effect a transient, complete elimination of the understanding under the symbolic sacrifice of rationality.
The sacred inspiration
Once the heretical mind has been shut down, the adepts suddenly direct bloodstreams instead of financial flows, right into the defenseless right half of their cerebrum.
In this state, patient inspiration is expected, which is the highest goal of the cult. This inspiration is regarded as the source and the most important infusion of ideas.
The god of rationalization
A ceremonial baptism, on the other hand, is completely unknown. For reasons of rationalization - a deity that plays an important role in all the known beliefs of the executive floors - one is, instead of being baptized, inspired directly and directly.
In this way, the highly revered creativity is ritually evoked. On this subject, our researchers also found a widespread and meaningful myth, which has a natural or specific “uncreativity” of each individual believer.
