Dibawah ini adalah komentar tentang ke-sepuluh paradoks:

Pada paradoks no.1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 Mihaly mungkin berpikir bahwa tidak ada batasan sifat pada seseorang yang kreatif. Hal ini terlihat dari penjelasannya dimana orang kreatif berada di dalam dua dunia sekaligus dalam waktu bersamaan, sehingga menciptakan sebuah dunia parallel yang mampu menyatukan kedua dunia tersebut. Contohnya pada penjelasan dimana seorang yang kreatif berada pada alam extrovert dan introvertnya. Ini menjadi jelas bila kita melihat seorang yang kreatif sebagai jembatan yang menghubungkan antara pemikiran pribadinya (introvert) dengan lingkungan sekitar (extrovert) sehingga terjadi sinkronisasi pemikiran yang saling berkaitan. Orang kreatif mampu melahirkan sebuah jembatan yang menghubungkan kepentingan pribadi dan kepentingan masyarakat.

Pada paradoks no.7, Mihaly menyatakan bahwa seorang yang kreatif mampu menjadi diri sendiri juga seorang yang lepas dari lingkungan stereotype. Ini menyatakan bahwa orang yang kreatif mampu menciptakan kepribadian yang mandiri dan tidak terlahir dari sebuah jiplakan dari lingkungan namun berawal dari sebuah originalitas. Orang kreatif juga tidak melihat dunia secara stereotype, mereka tidak melihat dunia selayaknya hitam dan putih saja namun juga memandang sisi abu-abu yang berada di antaranya. Ini menjelaskan bahwa seorang yang kreatif mampu menemukan sesuatu yang baru tanpa mengkategorikan penemuannya dengan benda lainnya.

Pada paradoks ke 9, Mihaly menyatakan bahwa seorang yang kreatif mampu menjadikan passion-nya menjadi sebuah tujuan, sehingga passion yang bersifat pribadi tersebut mampu menjadi sebuah bentuk yang objektif, bukan subyektif. Ia mampu menemukan jalan untuk menuju passion-nya, tanpa harus meninggalkan hubungan emosi dengan lingkungannya.

Yang terakhir adalah paradoks ke 10, dimana seorang yang kreatif digambarkan mampu menjalani kesedihan dan kegembiraan bersamaan. Ini menyatakan bahwa seorang yang kreatif mampu menciptakan suasana yang optimis di setiap keadaan. Kesulitan bisa menjadi sebuah kemudahan, dan kesedihan mungkin menjadi kegembiraan. Orang-orang yang bisa meng-convert hal itulah yang dapat dikategorikan sebagai orang yang kreatif



On a snowy night, standing on a cold bridge a Girl with brown hair. She stare to the starry skies, talking with them. Only with dirty long-extravagant cloth and naked feet, the Girl faced the northern wind that felt frozen cold that shaken even adult on their proper form. The wind blow as fast as they like, not mentioned the breeze snow that comes follow. Grumble she always is, every time she walk on the bridge. People already aware of the tales of the broken bridge girl. It is said that the Girl was born on that bridge. The Family took their baby born away and living on hiding beneath the bridge for many years. Now the girl only live without no one for her predecessor has passed to otherworld. Without further words from both her father and other people that come pass by, she found that the bridge is the only world and home she had. For she play, cry, smile, talk, eat, drink, growth, and dreaming on the bridge. She got her daily needs from the bridge. Food from people, cloth from scrapheap, and experience from each event that occurred on the bridge. She knows about relationship, but never learned about trust. She know how to talk, but never know how to start conversation. She know how to survive, but not about honor. She know what is life, but never full of it.

Every night the girl always look at the stary skies, and talk to them. Never she smile for others, but only for the stars. For that reason people think that the girl are twisted in her mind. Sometimes people give her a decent cloth, but she refuse for she think only her’s are the most gallant for that is originated from her family’s treasure. Sometimes a group of children ask her to be their friend, but she turns away for only stars she could talk with. Sometimes an old wealthy pair asked her to be their child, for only to be turned away for she think that they’re from different world of her.

The Bridge is a center of contraband. Every product from piracy, robbery, looting, or just simple thieving are sold there. Covered by crate full of fruit or vegetables, the real trade did under the surface. With unencrypted words and twisted smile. For its happens everyday, the Girl thought it was normal for them to use her upper-level-home to be used for that activity. They also give her free food for her silentness. It is sometimes people could seen that the Girl talk to other people, accompany them along the bridge, and turned away for them when they had crossed her Bridge.

One day, a great flood is coming. For her Bridge-home is right above the water level, she thought that she’ll be all right. Every contraband merchant are running for their sake. People are restricted by the authorities to get pass the bridge, and so they leave the Girl alone. The Girl is grumble to everyone, but ask no help from them. She alone, and only she alone start to piling up the left behind crate to fortify her bridge from the great flood. It is miracle that a lone girl could make a self-build dam to prevent the water to pass by. People who seeing her from the edge of the bridge admired her, think highly of her, and makes her their idol for her courage. Some of them become sad for her, cry for her, and angry for her stand pat. Some others try to give her advice for she didn’t see the real calamity.

Finally she finished her works. Admire herself for her stand alone fight against nature, prize herself for her hard-work, encourage herself to defend her Bridge, and humiliate others that she is could stand above them. “I am the Bridge!” She shout to the sky for her pride are explode from inside. And on that moment, suddenly a horror comes to everyone face. A terror sound come from below the Bridge. A deadly sound. The next thing they remembered is the Bridge fall right in front of them, and drag the Girl into the deadly stream down below. It is true that the girl successfully fortified the above-level, but she not know that the below-level of the Bridge already crumble for it could not hold against great flood stream. Many people shocked about it, cry for her, and pray for the Bridge. For they will remember how the Bridge buildup, the Girl’s life, and how they fell together. The story of broken bridge Girl.

“Most people think time is like a river, that flows swift and sure in one direction. But I have seen the face of time, and I can tell you they are wrong. Time is an ocean in a storm.”

Kebanyakan orang memiliki ide untuk menjadi superstar, untuk menjadi pahlawan ataupun artis, menjadi terkenal, atau hanya ingin menjadi kaya. Kebanyakan dari mereka berakhir menjadi pemimpi, beberapa di antaranya menjadi orang-orang yang beraktivitas di dekat mimpi mereka, dan hanya segelintir orang yang dapat menikmati impiannya untuk menjadi kenyataan. Beragam tipe, warna, bangsa, bahkan sifat memiliki beragam pula impian. Mulai dari rakyat miskin, anak pejabat, mantan pembunuh, hingga anak muda metropolitan. Namun hidup ini hanya sebatas orang biasa, tidak lebih dari orang penting bagi diri sendiri. Memiliki kemampuan rata-rata, fisik rata-rata, bahkan kegiatan rata-rata. Bukan tidak bermimpi, namun hanya mimpi yang sangat sederhana. Impian itu bukan untuk menjadi astronot, artis, atau pun kriminal. Tapi hanya agar hidup menjadi berharga. Apa yang tidak dipunyai, sehingga tidak ada harga yang pantas untuk sebuah kehidupan? Beribu kata menyatakan bahwa yang kalian cari bukan dari yang kalian miliki. Kepintaran bukan untuk kesuksesan, ketangkasan bukan untuk kemenangan, kekayaan bukan untuk kebahagiaan, kesunyian bukan untuk kenyamanan, kesempurnaan bukan untuk kehidupan. Yang nyata hanya ukiran tinta pada secarik kertas, bahwa mereka yang berkuasa atas hidupnya adalah mereka yang lebih. Mereka, kalian, dan kami. Mencoba optimis, walaupun mengerti dengan sadar dan jelas bahwa dunia adalah seorang ibu tua yang pesimis tanpa keturunan. Apa yang bisa di jual, untuk mendapatkan harga yang pantas dalam hidup?

If the time is right, the road will be different

If the time is right, the night wouldn’t be this freezing

If the time is right, i wish the time is right

If the time is right, no need to click that button

If the time is right, i will pray for the time to stop

If the time is right, no one needs to feel the hollow

If the time is right, it shouldn’t break apart

If the time is right, they shouldn’t be parted away

If the time is right, it would be a nice ending

and If the time is right, this emptiness would be filled

One of points that makes this movie interesting is Paramore song, decode, will score one of its soundtrack. It is the first time that this band ever score a soundtrack, and that must be a nice single. The reason behind their collaboration is because Hayley Williams, lead vocal of Paramore, is a huge Twilight fan. Another one of its soundtrack would be scored by Muse.

Another interesting point is this movie also one of literature based movie, which mean people who already read the novel would be the jury to decide is this movie worth to watch for. Me myself become excited to this movie because i’m curious how did it’ll become when it comes to the screen. Finally, for whoever that loves folklore/extraordinary romance story feel free to watch it.

PS: Twilight (novel) is a saga, so it’ll possible that the movie will turned out to be the same way. Twilight will be followed by New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn, and Midnight Sun.
