Home and attitude

My frame of mind gets pushed out of sync when I am watching ‘The worlds most extraordinary homes’.

It’s mind-blowing to see homes wedged under rock, in the forest, along a steep coastline or balancing on mountain ledges.

Recently, I completed a survey, which asked what I like about London and I answered among other things I like the plenty of food and shopping opportunities.

Today I watchen the program and there are no shops, someone had to actually build a road to get to a build the house and buildings in the rainforest. There is no infrastructure as we know it, there is just somebody with a lot of money who can afford to build where they like.

Only people who do not work 9 – 5 can reside in remote locations, anybody with a regular 8 hours job probably couldn’t commute as there is no established transport to the areas of the houses.

We workers live in blocks of flats or mass-occupied areas with a steady supply of goods, services, food and of course public transport.

Living in a city, a block of flats, in an urban environment, our minds always circle around the same thoughts, which are quite restricted to daily routine, commuting, shopping, education, work, budgets.

But living in a wild, remote area, with no shops, little traffic and no neighbours must spin the mind off into other things. I wonder whether this increases creativity to be able to make world-changing discoveries, like Sir Isaac Newton discovered gravity by watching an apple fall from a tree. Imaging what could happen if we lived in remote areas with all that modern knowledge we have these days as compared to primitive cultures living an remote areas without modern comforts.

I wonder whether creativity needs solace to think out of the box.
