To be creative you must set aside both certainties and doubt. Doubts are the driving force behind artistic creation. Doubts about what you see at any given time propel you towards finding other things that haven't been observed yet. Doubts are of unlimited value. Certainties are the functioning of the left brain, while uncertainties are that of the right brain. In any creative process, you need both certainties and uncertainties.

Analysis vs. Synthesis:
The terms analysis and synthesis come from classical Greek and mean literally "to loosen up" and "to put together" respectively. These terms are used within most modern scientific disciplines - from mathematics and logic to economy and psychology - to denote similar investigative procedures. In the emergent digital world with the nature of hyper-connectivity and over-complexity, we have to leave our old mechanistic view of the world behind us and look at the world through new eyes as a world of systems as a living thing. So how would you describe the difference between analysis and synthesis and why is one better than the other?.
