The Role of Creative Ignorance: Portraits of Pathfinders and Path Creators. New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2015. 0011. 0011   The Role of Creative Ignorance Ambitions are the wings that enable entrepreneurs to fly. Amongst such individuals are the high-flyers with oversized ambitions and the largest possible wingspan for flying birds—comparable to that of a newly discovered extinct species, the Pelagornis sandersi.

The mechanically determined process of path finding that typifies the proximity domain makes the brains of path finders more deterministic than they would like and gives way to randomness. In the randomness domain, devoid of antecedent causes or facts, there is no predictability, no certainty of individual outcomes. Each path creator is a depository of entrepreneurial energy transmitted in packets (‘quanta’) of indivisible ideas and used to create a path. The path creator is the player of a remarkable game, using an intuitive mind able to bring uncertainty to the level of probability.

Although aware that their horizon is not static, their mission is to reach a state or period of stability during which no revolutionary change occurs. 1 The framework of their research to find a path is ‘Newtonian’ economics, in which the mechanism of supply and demand operates, driven by individuals who act like automatons designed to maximize economic wealth. The trajectory of path finding is mechanically determined: the path finder misses the target only if the calculations are wrong; if there is a human error.
