I haven’t been home for three days, but writing after I read something of not my own makes me write more as if challenging another’s statement of belief.
'Rather I regard productivity, in general, as existence only when it is rooted in the immediacy of lived life. If the man whom you call productive, the one who expresses himself in a creative work, is inferior in power, in holiness, to him who only expresses himself in his life he is still in so far as he is grounded in immediacy, superior to him in the noble faculty of creating form. But if you consider an individual who has shrunk to mere from the streaming living potency there stands before us a masquerading hobgoblin who cannot form himself but can disguise himself in forms. No, what I said of the immediate man was not said against the productive one: I was attacking the dominant delusion of our time, that creativity is the criterion of human worth. But illegitimate creativity, creation without immediacy is no criterion for it is no reality. It is an illusion- and I believe in the absolute eye before which it cannot stand for a moment. Only that can be a criterion form which genuine creativity arises: that is the immediate.'
