  5. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    1. An endless abundance of opinions and assumptions speak of ignorance. 2. Learn if you want to live. 3. Imagination is diving into the bottomless depths of madness. 4. A genius does nothing, and does not even think, he simply waits for his own best thought or idea in order to bring it to life. The lover is constantly looking for other people, and makes a collage of other people's thoughts and ideas. 5. A masterpiece is when you are looking for your perfect radio wave on your internal radio. In the midst of the noise of your inner cosmos, you can find something completely new, ingenious. 6. Contemporary art Aesthetics as the basis of art has gone into the background. In the foreground is the abstract, unconscious philosophy of artists. Creative people create their creations not for people, but for themselves. That is why there is a gap between the perceptions of the artist and the viewer. People visiting modern exhibitions cannot understand what the author wanted to say, many write their humiliating notes with explanations about what this work is like. For example: a layman looks at work, reading a note with an annotation, and says: “ahh, is that a flower?” (Got up in a strange pose to see a flower, and the second repeats after her Only with this pose they see a flower). Answering her: Yes, I would never have guessed in my life. And the offended author of the work tells them: Yes, you do not understand anything in art, I am a genius. And cries bitterly. Even many professional art historians do not fully understand many artists, they only build some personal assumptions. And not all artists sometimes understand what they have created. The layman asks the artist: and what is depicted here. The author replies: “I don’t know, yes, yes.” 7. Violence in creativity, harmlessly reduces the world's population. 8. Creativity is the interference of the light of feelings. Light diffraction of emotions passed through the prism of the soul. Someone thereby creates the effect of transformation or distortion of the imagination, the uglier the thinking of people, the more terrible their imagination. Which resembles a metal constructor of lovers, a children's application of imitation. Whereas ingenious in insight. 9. Creativity is hardcore originality. 10. Genius does as no one thinks to do. He is looking for something completely new where no one will seek. He is not looking for soil for inspiration, he creates it with his bold steps, the soles of the sneakers of which glow gently with white, neon lights. In his own way, he creates a path for the next generation. Becoming the light at the end that illuminates this path. Patiently waiting for his followers on the other side.
