Creativity & Logic

Creativity & Logic
There exists two fundamental types of thought that are the underlining to Human Thought. They are Creativity and Logic.
Most people understand Logic fairly easily,
because it is so simple. Logical thought doesn't take any creativity it just takes the ability to Reason and Comprehend.
Creative thought is the Mother of all Illogical human thoughts.
Even emotions and feelings are more closely related to Creative thought than they are Logical.
Most people try to keep their Creative Thought Process separated from their Logical Thought Process but by doing that you can only Think one way at a time.
I Strive to keep them both merged at all times so that I can Think Creative Logically and Logically Creative.
I was thought to Think Outside the Box.
So give me a set of Science Rules and I'll come up with a Hypothesis of how they can be Broken. Granted I'm not saying that any of my Theories would actually happen.

RE: Creativity & Logic
I think, logical creativity is nothing. Because if we bound creativtity in logical values, then there would be limitations, for both creative and logical beliefs. Either of them not going to raise itself entirely.

I would dispute this.

As someone involved in the creative arts for the last 30 years or so (graphic designer since 1980), I think I have a little insight into what is involved in thinking creatively.

It's not so much about thinking illogically. It's much more about making connections between disparate concepts and/or things. If there is any "illogic" involved, it is only an illusion that springs from the ability to free oneself from prior expectations.

A couple examples:

When I go about composing a logo design, I gather all the concepts surrounding the entity in question, and then look for visual metaphors for each concept. I sketch those visuals and integrate them with text or with other metaphors, striving to achieve a final unified symbol that communicates the identity of the company or organization. This is a highly creative process, and within the parameters involved, it is also an extremely logical process.

When I go about creating an illustration, I give lots of thought to what it is I am trying to communicate. Like the previous example, I assemble and sketch out various concepts and visual metaphors for the thing in question. Eventually I narrow the idea down to something that fits the goals I am striving for. This is a very logical process, but because I have trained myself (to a certain extent) to be free from the strictures of the "obvious answer", I am open to new connections and relationships between ideas.

So from my point of view, there is no conflict between creativity and logic.

RE: Creativity & Logic
According to me Logic Can Kill Creativity.
Of course logic is the foundation for many decisions and is essential to the problem solving process. However logic can kill the creative flow of new ideas in brainstorming sessions. As part of the brainstorming rules, I always tell participants to “leave their logic at the door, there is no room for logic in these sessions.”

There’s a time and place for logic in the problem solving process, but that time is not now. There is plenty of time for logic later on. Most of us spend 99 percent of our time in the completely logical phase

RE: Creativity & Logic
As a non-commercial artist and inventor I just let ideas come as they come. Like most people, I too think logically about things most of the time but since childhood have been prone to letting my imagination go where it wants to go, you can't direct creativity logically in my experience although you can set yourself down to a specific creative task and let the ideas flow. There is similarity in the creative "ah hah!" experience and religious revelation btw, but with strong religious visions I have the experience of my body being shaken by waves of energy flowing through. This doesn't happen with me when I get creative non-religious ideas.

RE: Creativity & Logic
Logic is nothing more that conditional reasoning. I think logic is the foundation for many decisions and is essential to the problem solving process. I was searching for some information about what side of the brain does what and this was very helpful.
