Everybody can be creative (English version)

They find in scarce materials, regardless its status, sophistication or cost, a set of opportunities, generating an immaculate and pure fuel to operate their creative machinery.
From an inert, oxidized steel plate to a corrugated cardboard, everything is an inspiration for these little innovators, who are free from every tradition, custom or habit.
They have no boundaries or defects to create an indispensable source to develop their talent and thus forge a unique personality.
It is their innocence and lack of experience which shows that children make a whole out of nothing.
Once passed all stages of Piaget, the young men, who are ready to move into adolescence, lose consistently much of their neat emotion and boundless creativity, because to be part of a society they must comply with certain statutes and rules, sheltered within paradigms, strongly prohibiting any conduct that they hold against good customs and traditions. Now on the stage steps the logical rationality and calculating side, threatening creativity, and ready to snatch the lead role in the developing mind.
Over time, one of the two will be the flagship, with the greatest influence. Beyond the two qualities, rational and emotional aspects/creative, alternate roles occasionally, depending on the situation.

Once released into the employment and social turmoil, they live a high leveled stress and intensity, relegating increasingly the opportunity to develop the creative side . For that they need privacy and quietness.
The bustle of the city highlights the routine to which every average human being is exposed. The standards were able to generate a mechanized society that works on autopilot and is currently in crisis, where originality and innovation are highly rated.
The indispensable factor to produce what a society needs is time, but, paradoxically, that’s what lacks.
Those, who are lucky enough to have sufficient time to disconnect from the worldly bustle, should wake their inner child up, who embodies the ability to make out of nothing a whole.
In conclusion, "creative" can be anyone, because it is a quality that everyone has from conception. The problem is that not many people have plenty of spare time.

According to Alvin Toffler, knowledge (rational) increases seven times the GDP of a nation. In times of crisis emotionality (creativity) plays the lead role.
In one of his quotes the mathematician and physicist Albert Einstein said: "In moments of crisis only creativity is more important than knowledge."
