Genuine creativity does not exist.
What I mean by genuine creativity, is the spontaneous and completely original formation of ideas/concepts or matter/structures, both conscious and unconscious. Not subject to any prior influences, experiences, connections, and collaborations whatsoever.
Genuine creativity is an illusion. For an act of creativity to be completely genuine it has to come from nothing. I would argue that no such idea or natural structure in the known or even conceivable history of the universe has ever displayed that characteristic. And that it isn't possible for anything to exist completely independent. All forms of conscious and unconscious matter have relationships with others, either directly or indirectly; and therefore there exists an inability, within those forms, to escape the influence and collaborations which result from those relationships. The ability to exercise genuine creativity is impossible.

How can you say that genuine creativity doesn't exist when Super Mario bros was a video game about a plumber that jumped on goombas and smashed blocks. This doesn't happen in real life.
