Creativity may pertain to new combinations which bring together in new ways old combinations, connections, relationships and mixtures. The combinations of one day become the elements for the new combinations of the new day. Not all creativity leads to satisfaction, joy, pleasure, fulfillment, enjoyment or rejoicing. Some new combinations are misleading; they lead people into perceptions, understandings, attitudes, thinking, decisions and actions which are tragic. Misleading new combinations at first may offer high hopes, promises of renewal and appear highly desirable. It is not obvious in each instance that some new combination will turn out to be a misleading new combination. It is therefore important to be alert to early signals that some new combinations are really misleading new combinations which are likely to lead powerful, sincere and dedicated people to tragic consequences---in spite of their best efforts to be true to their highest ideals and values. Such is the essence of a tragedy. The very values and ideals in terms of which we seek to make wise judgement regarding new combinations may themselves be misleading combinations which need to be judged in terms of the tragic consequences into which they have and may yet lead us. Rebellions against old values and ideals may lead us to embrace new combinations of attitudes, values and ideals which are more misleading and tragic as the old ones; especially if they fail to lead us to search for integrity and honesty in healthy relationships.
