CREATORISM

Creatorism: a new idea. The anti-consumerism.

The basic notion is this:

To derive the maximal joy from existence, optimize your life for CREATION!

That means, create much. Make a lot of stuff. Anti-perfectionism. More focus on quantity over quality.

When is Bigger Better, and When is Bigger Worse?

Generally speaking based on my personal life, bigger is generally worse. For example, bigger cars are worse to drive, park, and live with. Bigger cameras are worse to carry, cause pain in your wrist or neck, and you shoot fewer photos. Bigger houses are worse, because they require more cleaning and maintenance.

But certainly there are some conditions in which bigger is better. This is something I’ll try to essay.

Work-Life Integration

It ain’t about work-life balance, but work-life integration.

My work is my pleasure and passion, and my life is my work. The two are yin-yang and inseparable.

Is this the key to the most happy and creatively productive life? I think so.

Possible or Optimal?

Something I think about:

Discovering new methods in life which proves certain POSSIBILITIES.

And also, something I think about:

What is more important, striving towards new possibilities or what is “optimal” or best?

Just Share Your Own Opinion

Don’t strive to criticize, change, or critique others. Instead, strive to formulate your own opinions, and share them with others!

Share your own opinion without censoring yourself. Strive to reach your ideal followers.

Pure.

Strive towards artistic purity. That means, do it purely for yourself. Strive to master your own art, for yourself, with disregard for others.

WHAT IS HOLDING YOU BACK?

Something I think about a lot:

What is truly holding us back?

Is it lack of time? Lack of resources? Lack of ideas and inspiration/motivation? Lack of money? Lack of intelligence? Lack of courage? Lack of the proper tools and devices?

What is it that we lack?

How I Work

I’ve always been curious how others work. I cannot speak for others, but let me invite you into my mind and my personal creative working process:

Creative Productivity

When we think of ‘creativity’, we often think of being “creatively original”. However, a better definition of creativity is ‘propensity to create’, or “the tendency to create (a lot) of stuff”.

So why this term ‘creative productivity’? Well, my thought:

When we tell others to be ‘creative’, they think we mean to say: “Do this in a novel fashion which has never been done before.”

This line of thought is paralyzing. Better to say:

“Be creatively productive! Just make a bunch of stuff! Perfection can be damned!”

MONSTER CHILD

The super human: synthesis of monster and child?

Sweet, naive, open minded, curious, and friendly like a child but also having the ability to turn into a monster, a beast, and a chaos?

Philosophy of Black and White

All black clothing, but white skin. Black cars with white accents, or white cars with black accents. Black and white photos or black ink on white paper.

What mysteries can black and white uncover?

Infinite Steady and Slow Gains

A thought:

Perhaps life is more interesting and enjoyable when we strive towards infinite gains, in a slow and steady manner.

For example when it comes to powerlifting, I love the idea that as long as I keep eating, training, and giving it all of my courage, my “one rep max” will continue to grow indefinitely; infinite gains, although slow and steady. For example, striving to increase my one rep max by 5 pounds every week, or every other week (forever).

Infinite money?

It ain’t about how much money you got; I think it’s more enjoyable to think about your money always growing. Better to grow your money infinitely higher, slowly and steady, instead of earning tons of money in few chunks.

Better to get lots of steady serotonin daily (or weekly), instead of in infrequent (but huge) chunks

For example, I know I will live a long time, and I also desire to live a long time. If this is the case, then I want to feel maximally empowered as much as possible. And it seems to get infrequent but massive gains is frustrating. Better steady, consistent slowly, and infinitely more than inconsistent gains.

Should we work with human bias, or try to override it?

It seems philosophers and psychologists say:

Humans are dumb and defective because we get suckered by our “bad” or “irrational” human biases.

But what if there is insane amounts of wisdom in our folly and “irrationality”?

Thought:

Should we give more respect and credence to “irrationality”?

Don’t Be a Sucker

A good way to live life:

Simply avoid being a sucker (however you define this for yourself).

For example, when it comes to economic matters or purchasing decisions– don’t get suckered. Don’t get suckered into buying things which are contrary to your own personal preferences.

What does it mean to get suckered?

It is all subjective. My definition is this:

If you get tricked or fooled into doing something contrary to your own personal benefit, you’re getting suckered.

Obey yourself

Don’t let others try to superimpose their code of ethics or morality upon you. Stay firm, and have the courage to state:

These are my personal preferences, only for myself. My preferences aren’t for you, nor are your preferences for me!

Lesson:

There is no such thing as being “smart”, but there is such thing as being a sucker.

Thus in life, the best way to be “smart” is to avoid being a sucker!
