I think group think is dangerous. It takes all the fun out of being creative.
From the time a child is 5 years old until they turn, let's say, 11, their mind is like an explosive confetti factory. Ideas and thoughts are everywhere and non stop with all colors. Woe be unto the human who will try to squash this energy.
If you want to be fresh again, spend some time with a 5 or 6 year old and see the world through their eyes. Before it is too late for you or them.
