The Creativity Framework by Dan Zen

Creativity Framework

Inventor Dan Zen has spent fifty years being creative, twenty years analyzing creativity and ten years synthesizing the Philosophy of Nodism to which his wife suggested:

People might follow Nodism if you made it useful!

In response, Zen made the Creativity Framework based on the findings of Nodism. (Don’t worry, relax and be part of the Nodist Colony!) For more information see ◎ Your Guide to the Philosophy of Nodism

Our present guide will help you explore the Creativity Framework. Just make sure you prepare by examining all the diagrams below! Hahaha.
