Inspiration.

There is a long tradition in western thought, perhaps a vestige of the old testament view of god breathing life into Adam, that explains creative achievements by assuming that individuals simply serve as vehicles through which divine ideas are expressed.

The individual plays no direct part in creativity, it is carried out by the gods.

In Greek mythology, the Muses, the goddesses of song and the arts generally, breathe original ideas into people, which is why we say that we get an “inspiration”, meaning the act of breathing in, when we suddenly get a good idea.
