The creative aptitude for symphony is that it seems to open up new worlds for us. For the person who writes that wants to expand their work into other media they can look at the way that the information is out there and see how the world works in concert and model their own work after it. Not only in gaining the knowledge but finding examples that are already out there in the media. It also should be able to create a new consciousness in work that prevents the creative person from being close minded. If we are all connected and in just a few steps our work can end up on the other side of the world the certainly we should be mindful of that and choose to understand our neighbors better.
When it comes to learning and teaching it opens up absolutely new worlds. Especially when you consider the talks from the first video. Knowledge is centered in hubs that connect and shrink the world so that anything we need is out there. Teaching and learning no longer needs to rely on simply having a textbook because the use of the internet and networks gives us access to all the information that we need. Learning now is less limited by cost and open to a ready and willing audience.
The answer to being more transdisciplinary is simple. It is the opening of ones eyes or mind to see the world for the diverse place that it is. Something as simple as a joke about Kevin Bacon opened scientists eyes to the interconnected nature of the world and how it is works. We have the advantage over them because we have had the pathways mapped and defined for us we just need to follow what we have learned.
