Accord’ing to young, innovative idea’s happen when you develop new combination’s of old element’s. In other word’s, creative think’ing is not about generat’ing someth’ing new from a blank slate, but rather about tak’ing what is already present and combin’ing those bit’s and piece’s in a way that has not been done previous’ly.
