The creativity of imagination empowered by desire for newness is inspired by the counter-narratives and alternative perspectives of exteriority, and guided by values of natality and flourishing. It is this imagination that is set free by attentiveness to the life and beauty that emerged ever and again as contrasted with the sordid violence that structures the narrative of the West, and develops a poetics of transformation.
