Some definitions

Creativity: having the ability or power to create, productive, creating. Characterized by originality and expressiveness, imaginative. Most ancient cultures, including thinkers of Ancient Greece, Ancient China, and Ancient India, lacked the concept of creativity, seeing art as a form of discovery and not creation. This vision is shared by Martin Helm.

Curiosity:(from Latin curiosus "careful, diligent, curious," akin to cura ‘care′) is an emotion related to natural inquisitive behavior such as exploration, investigation, and learning, evident by observation in human and many animal species.The term can also be used to denote the behavior itself being caused by the emotion of curiosity. As this emotion represents a drive to know new things, curiosity is the fuel of science and all other disciplines of human study. It is also the driving force of art.

Diversity: the state or fact of being diverse, difference, unlikeness. Variety, multiformity. A point of difference. It is the artists conviction that without diversity any system will eventually collapse back to chaos.

Intuition: from Late Latin intuiti, intuitin-, a looking at, from Latin intuitus, a look, from past participle of intur, to look at, contemplate. The act or faculty of knowing or sensing without the use of rational processes, immediate cognition. A sense of something not evident or deducible, an impression.
