Regardless of what cultural myth we believe in to describe the origin of our planet, whether it be the story of the Creation in Genesis, the Big Bang Theory, or that the world sprung for a lotus flower, the same truth can be applied to all environmental, societal, political, and technological growth to ever occur. At first there was nothing, then there was something small, then it grew into its own entity. A quark grew into an atom which grew into a molecule which grew into matter. Every tree, every belief system, every government, and every machine was created in the same way.
Creativity is the talent through which this growth can be guided. Innovation is the skill of putting it to good use. Sustainability is making it last. Wisdom is knowing your place in it.
