Where does genius reside? Unsurprisingly not at the Apple store.

The difference between the original and modern definition of genius is such a dangerous change. Genius was used by the Romans to describe this magical creature that would assist with the creative progress which helped control the artist’s ego cause if your work was a masterpiece then your genius did its job well that time and if it came out bad you had an external entity to blame.

Redefining of genius makes a dangerous change where the artist is the one in completely responsible for the success or failure of their work, which in turn increase the stress of the creative process which is one of the factors that lead to the linking of depression and suffering to the creative fields.
