Transcript of Mountain Climbing and SETI: Finding Your Elusive Genius

your creative masterpiece
"Stay with me, it does circle around back."
And most of all knowing you cannot climb a mountain, detect a signal, or craft
if you don’t show up.
Inspired by Eliabeth Gilbert's
"Your Elusive Creative Genius"
TED
Talk

people treat you like you said, “I think I will climb this gigantic treacherous mountain.”
When you say "I want to be a writer, musician, dancer, painter, director… [insert creative passion here],"
They ask you all kinds of encouraging questions like:
“Aren’t you afraid of being buried alive by an avalanche of failure and rejection only to suffocate beneath the collapsing waves?"
We decided to go another direction.
We regret to inform you...

This does not fit in our current market.
Thank you but...
Thank you for your interest...
You have not been chosen.
There were a lot of qualified submissions,
but yours was not one of them.
You have not made it to the next round.
Thank you for the opportunity to review your work and for your interest in our program, but...
We wish you the best of luck in your future artistic endeavors.

"Of course I am afraid."

And yet you climb anyway.
You packed well and trained hard, and the things you can’t control like weather and earthquakes work out in your favor. You even fought off grizzlies and dug your way out of landslides and you made it to the top.

You stand alone at the peak of the mountain and admire the view, your view.
Caution:

But do not fret. You are not alone. There is help out there. You just have to SETI.
Search for Ethereal Transcendent Inspiration
Now everyone awaits your next climb. And with each subsequent ascent you will carry the new weight of expectation up grander and grander mountains.
A creative genius is not an invisible friend to be summoned or a super power to be activated when duty calls. It is an elusive influence.
There are signals floating out there. You just have to listen and hope you are tuned to the precise frequency at the right time and are prepared for the transmission when it comes in.
You may have to sort through the noise to find the message.
