New Frontier Synergy

Has anyone else noticed that many of the best works of literature, film, video games etc. were developed during times of rapid change and advancement? This could be called the “new frontier synergy” effect, and it’s sort of getting me down.

It seems that the excitement of new developments, of trailblazing and the opportunities it brings lead to the purest forms of expression and some of the absolute best of creative material. This is comparable to the scale of advancement for business and science during times of great need, such as in war.

What this means is that the one of the best and only ways to create an exciting, dynamic force with which to drive forward your goals and visions is either to be in the right place at the right time or to try to discover infinitely smaller and smaller opportunities present in current conditions.

For any creative endeavor, one person’s will and vision should and always will be the main driving force. But let’s face it, it’s just harder to innovate and refine when the excitement of the chase isn’t there anymore, and you’re stuck trying to travel on a tame, lame old horse.
