Cut and paste.
The inevitable recycling of the world.
We all loath the unoriginal; "where have I seen that before", "I remember that from there.", or "Oh, that's been done before."
But as a true artist once said, those who refine what has already been created are those that are leading us to brilliance. Nothing great can be built without founding principles. Nothing remarkable can be born without knowing it's origins and understanding its inner workings. Once this understanding is created one may remodel it into something new.
With this thought in mind - a smart man should take what we already have, and try recreate it into something better. The earth recycles energy and life in a constant flux to recreate itself into better forms. We should do just that in our own works. We should embody the greatest force that man kind has known - nature. We should take from its actions and imbue them into our every motion.
Redistribute the geometry, reconfigure the known, reshape your reality, and then you will redefine our world.
