Descartes takes his date, Jeanne, to a posh restaurant for her birthday. The waiter hands them the wine list, and Jeanne asks to order the most expensive bottle on the list. “I think not!” exclaims an indignant Descartes, and *POOF* he disappears. “What is the meaning of life?” Many people have spent a lot of…

I chatter on and on about creativity for a reason. There is nothing more important. Nothing. Why? Creativity is our ability to process information in a way that results in an idea.
