Creativity can be anything natural, fake, unnatural and even insane.

Some of the greatest inventions of old and new were tought of as been supernatural abilities. Few disabilities in people had given birth to great ideas.
Certain unnatural events had led to greater discoveries of all time. Splashing of paints of different colors had paid of in our arts galleries.

    Creativity is allways a combination of ideas or designs, a synthesis and you are the synthesiser.
    What you choose to stir around in your melting pot of creativity is unique to you as an individual.

    Mar 28 2012: I think nothing is unnatural. Nature is all that exist whether we can sense it or not. For a good fake a bit of creativity is needed. The insane suffer from the judgment of the sane and are forced to develop some creativity to stay alive.
    And yes, creativity can produce anything.

      Mar 30 2012: yes you are right. however, some creative arts are believed to be unnatural. Like witchcraft and projection of ones self into other cosmic and esoteric (extraterrestrial) realms. that's a world beyond humans. so I believe that's unnatural.
