Our Q&A with March speaker, Melany Bell who will be talking on the topic of Water
CreativeMornings Seattle - How do you define creativity and apply it in your career?
Melany Bell - Creativity can be defined as a measurable amount of energy applied to mastering a concept; then applied and synthesised said concept into a new point of view or invention. Flipping information. Taking new approaches that reduce entropy.
(CMSEA) - Where do you find your best creative inspiration?
(MB) - My best source for inspiration is conceptualizing Infinite Intelligence. Attempts to understand the Infinite never get old. Physics and Human function have been a focal point. But I started as a performing Artist so Human behavior was always fascinating for me. In what ways are we eternal? How do I explain where a quark goes in my art? How can I get a bunch of people to think about the most important questions without pissing them off? How many people give themselves the time to think about Everything and share those ideas?
(CMSEA) - What’s the one creative advice or tip you wish you’d known as a young person?
(MB) - Listen to the smartest people on the planet. From every culture, every religion, every race etc. Try to not get stuck with one Teacher or one idea of anything. Knowledge is an Infinite pool bumping into another pool of Itself all the time. Every person we meet has an eternity of experience to share with us.
(CMSEA) - Who would you like to hear speak at CreativeMornings?
(MB) - I would like to hear Thomas Warren Campbell. One of my favorite physicists.
(CMSEA) - What myths about creativity would you like to set straight?
(MB) - It comes naturally.
(CMSEA) - What was the best surprise you’ve experienced so far in life?
(MB) - I have a habit of wanting to know everything I can about myself. I come clean about everything I can. Identity empowerment is a huge thing. My eldest Sister Dione, did some research on our Family that strongly reincarnated the right to be a writer in me. I wrote several plays and books in a year. There is so much about where we come from and knowing your purpose that supersedes so many barriers. Finding your purpose is why I contemplate the Infinite. Purpose directs our behavior and choices in life. Know thy self.
