His mind is shuffling his information at all times, even when he is not conscious of it. The presence of others can only inhibit this process, since creation is embarrassing. For every new good idea you have, there are a hundred, ten thousand foolish ones, which you naturally do not care to display." Issac Asimov (1920-1992) "Isaac Asimov’s Advice for Being Creative" (1959).
