"art built on top of logic" is probably one of the best descriptions i ever read.

I loved the quote and I immediately realize that same thing happen also with music and other kinds of arts. Art is built over kind of a logic layer, which are the (minor) things we already know from science (or something like that).

Thinking about programming as a creative thing -as an art- is the way to feel connected or fulfilled when you feel a bit disconnected seated behind a 'cold' computer. Also having in mind the sharing value and a continuous improvement mindset would make you fill aligned with a major purpose.
