BYBS: Muse

Ancient Well by
This is the place within each one of us where creative ideas come from.  What does one call it?  Creative spirit?  Creative impulse?  Your muse?

Akira, an old Japanese anime, had an interesting way of putting it:

A human being, you know, achieves a whole lot of things in a lifetime, right?  Like discovering things and making things like houses and motorbikes and bridges and towns, rockets.  Where does that tremendous knowledge and energy come from?

The thing is that there seems to be a never-ending supply of this stuff too.  For some people like Mozart or a Turing or Einstein these are world shaking ideas or great works of art.

Of course, there's the other side of the spectrum, occupied by people like me.

(Muse): World peace.
(Me): Whirled peas!
(Muse): I said WORLD PEACE!
(Me): Eye see whirled peas!
(Muse): Never mind...idiot.

OK, so not all of the stuff that comes from a muse is good, especially when it has to go through a somewhat less than perfect lens, but what's important is that everyone has a limitless supply of ideas.  Like this one I have about whirled peas...
