Creativity is essential, not only for science but for the whole of life.
If you get stuck in a mechanical, repetitious order, then it will degenerate.

The creative energy gradually died away and that is why the civilization dies.
Many civilizations vanish, not only because of external pressure, but because they internally decay.
