Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“There’s so many books. You need several lifetimes to read them all. What’s the point of it all?“
“You need to widen your perspective. By reading, you are part of a larger collective endeavor.“
“What do you mean?“
“Creativity, in essence, means making connections. By reading different books, people make different connections. From a macro perspective, we are taking part in a collective creative process – what I like to call collective creativity.
So you don’t need to read them all. Just follow your interests, make your own unique connections, and return the gift by sharing your ideas with the world.“
