Creation used to be the sole providence of God. We did not separate creation and creativity from the Divine until the Renaissance. The Renaissance man started to attribute single individuals with special abilities they claimed was not of God but human an called them creativity. We call creativity a science since the beginning of the 20th century.

Creativity as a science has three main areas: Problem Solving; Imagination; Innovation. However, the importance of creativity in our everyday life is not only to become more innovative or being better in problem solving but to have a meaningful life.

Being creative allows us to become aware, to expand beyond the routines, and see the magnificent tapestry of our individual life.
