To illustrate the different roles and subtle aspects of creation within the different disciplines, imagine a movie that is completed and an artist decides to contribute to the finished presentation.  In this case, the artist adds an elephant to the scene and the elephant steps on the protagonist’s toe.  The resolution of the movie does not change; the file size does not expand, or the length of the film increase.  In all practical applications, the movie does not change, but interest, relevance, a connection to the viewer, entertainment value, and narrative can change dramatically.  Twitter was conceived from an engineering, practical foundation with the 144 character limitation, but it is the poet that has made it relevant.
