WHAT IS HUMANITY’S POTENTIAL? WHAT ARE WE TRULY CAPABLE OF? HOW CREATIVE ARE WE? Humanity’s potential can be linked directly to human potential that is, the potential of every person. But what brings forth that potential is even more vital to understand. That essence that separates thought from reality, and idea to manifestation, is creativity. Believe it or not, “creativity” didn’t exist until the 19th century. Well, the word didn’t, anyway.

The future belongs to the creative. Curiosity is given to all of us as children. It’s up to each of us to keep it. Imagination is a more evasive element.
