To create and bring forth is to harness a sort of power. When you create something from nothing, you gain a sense of godliness because you have made something. There is power in creating and power is always sought after. I really came to understand this when I read The Girl with the Pearl Earring. The artist in the book holds power because he creates, but his wife also wanted power, so she created children. To give life to someone is the greatest power of all. And if you can’t create, you destroy, because there is power in that as well. Those who take a life also feel the power that they hold when they decide to do so. Those who tear down what others build learn they can be just as powerful as those who create. We remember creators and destroyers alike, for they have bled into our lexicon and world. If it were not for Ed Gein, there would be no Pyscho, Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and Silence of the Lamb.
