What is the connection between creativity and entropy

  1. Aug 3, 2008 #1

    Is there any connection between creativity and level of order?

    wikipedia - Creativity (or "creativeness") is a mental process involving the generation of new ideas or concepts, or new associations of the creative mind between existing ideas or concepts.

    so, will it create chaos - lower level of creativity?

    Mmm. I think that creativity is proportional to the entropy of one's desk (at least, I hope so - my desk is a mess...)
