Continuity connects us to our past. It makes us feel secure and grounded. It adds an element of familiarity and predictability to life which is reassuring.
Creativity is our future. It is the unknown emergent possibility. It is surprising, fun, and exciting.
The present is the fulcrum that balances continuity and creativity, balancing the weight of each.
We experience continuity and creativity in our lives both separately and simultaneously. They both support and oppose each other. The new cannot be understood without the context of the old. The old holds spaces for the new to materialize through disintegration or disconnection.
