Creativity Imagined

We have been intrigued by Whitehead's coining of the word 'creativity'. We had assumed that this was a word with a long heritage, not one of fairly recent invention.

It was one of the 'three ultimates' along with 'God' and the 'World' that formed the primary trivium of his philosophy.

We have sought to imagine what Whitehead meant by 'creativity' in this context. A meaning that might align with his concepts of 'actual occasions' and 'feeling'.

We wonder if the essence of 'emergence' sits at the core of this process he called 'creativity', one that feels magical in nature – a 'magical emergence' – a becoming.
