“The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”
George Bernard Shaw

Christopher Alexander on Creativity

“In a living system what is to be always grows out of what is, supports it, extends its structure smoothly and continuously, elaborates new form – sometimes startling new form – but without ever violating the structure which exists.

… Creativity comes about when we discover the new within a structure already latent in the present. It is our respect for what is that leads us to the most beautiful discoveries.”
