Everything Is A Remix

The statement printed above is the absolute truth.  And is something that I’ve been learning more and more over time.  There are, for the most part, no new ideas left.  New things can be created by maybe taking something old and putting it on its ear, or blending two or more different things together.  But as far as I can think, or have ascertained, an absolutely original idea is neigh impossible, outside of divine inspiration or something of the like.  Even when you think you have something new, you have undoubtedly been at least been subconsciously influenced by a myriad of ideas you’ve experienced in your lifetime.  Now, you might be thinking, ‘why is Rashan trying to put a damper on creativity?’  And that is not at all what I’m trying to do.  If anything, I hope to be perpetuating creativity by freeing people up to the realization that it’s okay to…borrow from those who have come before.  I guarantee that whoever you look up to as an original or independent thinker did a bit of it themselves.  And all of that is exactly what this video, and hopefully impending video series by a gentleman by the name of Kirby Ferguson is all about.  And illustrated in a very well done, well researched, and entertaining manner.  Watch the video.  Learn.  Be freed. Enjoy.
