Where do ideas come from?

People do not make ideas, they GET them. For me as a professional creative I know this to be true. First there is this unrest about some theme or topic. A knowing that it could be, should be, must be better. Secondly if one stays focused with an open mind, then idea’s can come in. To me, an idea is like a possibility that has not come into one’s awareness before. Yet that possibility has always been there. It is surprising to witness briljant idea’s pop up on a daily basis. Some so simple and apparently obvious that I wonder why nobody has thought of it before.

I imagine there is a huge realm of unmanifested possibilities. It requires a certain commitment to a quest of question to be able to connect with this spirit of inspiration, one might say. Trying to explain how I see it I recorded my thinking and for the first time edited it to be a movie. Here it is:
