I don't see how or where there's a difference there. Do you suppose, for instance, that it would be possible for anyone not to collaborate with the world and still make something happen? I try to make things happen, and sometimes they do as i wanted, and sometimes they do not. When they do not, i don't get what i want. Which i find neither pleasant nor does it come as a surprise. I am not in complete control, so yes, the outcome is uncertain. But though that means chance is in play, that's not the same as surprising. If a difference, it probably is in how deliberate the process is. Do you try your best to create what you have envisaged, or is there room for spray and pray? Or put differently, where and when does the creative part of the process take place, and who or what is the creator?
