There are no original ideas or creations. They are only ‘original’ or ‘unique’ in the sense that we make the intangible tangible (or so we think/perceive) manifest through our individual mind and physical self. And like a fingerprint, there is only one ‘us’ in the physical relative sense.
The Reality is that we are recycling stations. We recycle ideas, thoughts, words, concepts, theories, philosophies, art… We may edit it, bundle it together, or shine it up in a way we think is unique or original, but that is just an illusion.
We are simply sharing our inner world with our outer world in every moment and ‘vice versa’… recycling what we perceive, think, see, know, and what we have always known and will always know in it’s various images, forms, shapes and syllables.
And so it goes… ad infinitum. – mu
