This is why we are limited…

Exceptionalism is founded on innovation. And without the restructuring of past data bodies in the human brain, creativity is impossible. The more we observe, the more we can do, and we are completely constrained unless we explore.

We can’t create unless we’ve seen or been exposed to a certain amount of data. The human neocortex and thalamus can only save and integrate memories to create new worlds.

I’ve had a certain tool with me for nearly three years and haven’t done much with it except watch the person who introduced it to me use it.
Until today, when I came across someone creating something completely amazing with the material while looking through Instagram. I was really taken aback.

More so because he only had one of these instruments when I have several, but still got the results I wanted.

Now I’ll be able to make use of the new opportunity to build something completely new based on the recollection of the previous experience. That is to say, someone who is not exposed to new information on a daily basis gets… (limited and redundant)

It is for this reason that I am writing this article.

The human eye can only see up to 3 miles away. The human brain can understand a “petabyte,” which is equal to 1024 terabytes or a million gigabytes of digital memory. The average adult human brain can store the equivalent of 2.5 million gigabytes of digital memory.

But here’s what I need you to understand:

The amount of information that the brain can store in its billions of synapses isn’t unlimited, but it’s huge enough that the amount we can learn isn’t restricted by it. How much we can generate, on the other hand, is mostly determined by how much we’ve learned from direct and indirect encounters.

Our inattention exacerbates the problem. We can only focus on a limited number of things at a time, and paying attention is usually required to form new memories. And new recollections play a role in the creation of new and updated items.

So here’s the deal: memory drives creativity. That is to say, for each given creative endeavor, it is critical to locate memories that will assist you in completing the assignment…. The most important thing to remember is that every creative activity demands you to use your prior knowledge to assist you in doing new things.

As a result, there are two key statements here:

We can’t create unless we’ve seen or been exposed to a certain amount of data.
The human neocortex and thalamus can only save and integrate memories to create new worlds.

2. We are constrained unless we are shown more.
As a result, sight and prior experience are important because they compensate for the limitations we may face.

As a result, our creativity is based on the usage of facts from our memories and their restructuring. As a result, unless we see, participate in, learn about, and engage with more things in many sectors, we will remain constrained.
