in all of history there's been billions and billions of people, each and everyone one of them having some sort of creativity, some contributing much more than others. With all this history and ideas, everything that is thought has been thought before, so one could say creativity is now lost. I say no. I see that creativity has not died, but has evolved and redefined itself. Creativity is not the creation of ideas, but the revival of forgotten ideas.

I like it! And on that note, read about Hermeticism, it's some trippy-ass mid-first millenium shit.

"everything that is thought has been thought before" not true. People way back didnt think about how to build a plane, or space craft, or car, etc. or at least the right way. So the person who first invented something like the car for example would have been the first to think about how it is supposed to be built. So I believe there are MANY things that havent been thought of before (to create for example). Time machine? Traveling at the speed of light? No one has figured it out yet, and if someone eventually does, they'd be the first to figure it out.
