How is destruction a form of creation?
Destruction paves the way for something new to form out of the ensuing chaos. It's a way to bring an end to stagnation or an imperfect system, so something young, and with potential for growth, can take its place. An example would be a political revolution, where a new government inevitably forms out the turmoil, frequently better than the original and more able to adapt to current events. -------------------------- Fiat lux's answer: I registered here now to answer your question (: "Destruction is a form of creation." While this statement is seemingly rather simple, it contains very deep philosophical thoughts or more precisely very deep thoughts about us, humans, and our understandings. This statement has various communicative layers, I could compare it to Descarte's "I think therefore I am"; many people think they understand it, because it is also seemingly simple, and this is the biggest obstacle to knowledge: the ego. Back to the topic: the statement "destruction is a form of creation" represents, that creation and destruction are measured SUBJECTIVELY! This means that destruction is NOT the opposite of creation, although "main stream" thinking would suggest this. The statement suggests therefore that destruction IS actually creation, because when something is destroyed, another thing is created from it; and when something is created, another thing was destroyed, so at a certain destruction\creation event it is possible only upto a subjective layer to decide whether destruction or creation occured. Nature, which is objective, is indifferent towards destruction and creation, because "she knows" that these terms are completely interchangeable. Hence destruction is a form of creation!
