Mystery is where our new learning comes from, which is why creativity is so important for learning. Our creative process, in whatever form it manifests, is how we access mystery. We're all creative beings, because we all wonder about things in this world and seek new knowledge to help us understand. So perhaps it's just as accurate to say that without creativity, there is only propaganda.
